I will start with the positives. We travel quite a bit and stayed in a motel or hotel 63 nights last year. We choose La Quinta when one is available because they generally provide a very nice, clean room, a decent breakfast, and efficient friendly service at a good price. They also universally accept pets and we travel with our dogs. I also require handicap accessibility and La Quinta provides convenient accessible rooms. The Fort Pierce La Quinta is relatively new. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and very clean. The location is just off of I 95 and near several restaurants. The area is very quiet, as was our room, and there are good places to walk dogs if you are traveling with one. One comment on handicapped accessibility is in order. The website for the Inn indicates walk-in showers. These may exist in some of the accessible rooms, but not the one we were given. I can get in and out of a tub shower, but for those who can't make sure you talk with the desk when you make the reservation.
The prices vary substantially depending on the season and demand. We had to be in the Ft. Pierce area for a funeral and had no option as to date so we paid more than $140 a night over a weekend. That is pretty high for a La Quinta regardless of location and is certainly high for one near a town like Ft. Pierce by which I mean one that is not a tourist destination.
The service rates a 1 and that's being generous. There was no one at the desk when I came to check in and when someone did appear they were arrogant to the point I felt like they were doing me favor letting me stay. There was also no one in evidence when I checked out. After about 10 minutes a clerk came down the hall. She was very friendly, but I have the sense that they don't have enough staff. The maid's do a good job, but if you are staying more than one night and need the room made up before 3 o'clock make sure you check back to ensure your request is being acted on. We had the same problems with breakfast that are noted in other reviews. The room has too few chairs and the breakfast bar is not maintained in a timely manner. For example, the first morning we ate breakfast we were there for about 30 minutes but the fruit, eggs and juice was not replaced during that period, although it was only 8 o'clock.
