“Ringling College”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Stayed here when we toured Ringling College. Wonderful motel and staff. It was located close to the college and offered a discount from Ringling. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. Staff was very friendly. Would stay again.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for five days and was treated with such care. The staff are friendly on the phone and even more friendlier in person. We decided to take our two dogs with us and they were greeted with friendly hugs at check in. I would highly recommend this hotel especially if traveling with pets..Thanks for a great week!!!! We will return

we have several hotels booked with this same company,hopefully they wont be as bad as this one.our room was right near the lounge and front desk,it was so noisey,I even asked at 11.00pm if the clerk could please turn the tv down.my bed was broken,so didnt get any sleep all night,the linens were stained.I hate to think what those stains were. and there was stains on the carpet and furniture.my husband went around 9.00am to get us breakfast there was very little choice of food.on checking out,we did tell the cleck our concerns as we didnt want another guest having the same problems as us. we will not go back there again.but will continue using the la quinta as we have stayed at many hotels before this is only the second bad one we wasnt pleased with.anyone going there I suggest you ask to see the room first.

Room Tip: do not use room 108 and ask to check out your room first.this was a hard lesson for us,but we wont m...

We have stayed in many La Quinta's because they allow pet's with no charge and we usually travel with our two dogs from NY to Texas and there is a La Quinta in just about every town. This trip was minus the dogs, but we chose the La Quinta in Sarasota because we always have had a positive experience with their hotels. This hotel is convenient to the main road and has easy access to the north or south towns and is close to the beaches. As always having the availability of the free breakfast is convenient and a budget saver. We are also earning some points towards another free room. Can't beat it!

Hotel was nice and easy to access other areas of Siesta Key area. Room was small and had an odor when you first walk into the room. If staying longer than the one night, would have asked for a different room. Staff were friendly. Did not stay for breakfast so cannot review quality of food. Overall decent experience with hotel.

Room Tip: If room has odor when you first enter, ask for a different room and make the move if possible.

This LaQuinta is pet friendly, so you might bring your I-Pod. I also travel with my pets, so they do NOT bother me!!! The breakfast was great-- especially the hot waffles. We truly enjoyed our stay and would stary again. It's also close to the beach!!!!!!!
