“I would return, but...”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

I stay at various La Quinta's a lot, as my wife and I usually travel with our dog. This time it was just me. As La Quinta's go, this one is nicer than most, but also more expensive than most. The hotel itself is modern and clean. The staff varied from being very friendly and accommodating to just doing their job without being rude. Actually, this stay will be most remembered for the number of rude guests. My first night there was a yippy little dog next door that barked a LOT. The second night the dog was gone but there was a guy across the hall that kept making calls and talking in a loud voice, and he had one of those voices that carries. The third night I was next to someone that played really loud hip hop type music. (Someone called management and they toned it down after a visit from the staff.) And everyone was so messy in the dining room - it's like "Have you people not been in a hotel before?"

Room Tip: If you stay in an upper room on the back side, you have a water view.

This is an excellent business/family oriented hotel with a kind, efficient staff. Wifi is free, a computer with a printer for boarding passes is offered in the lobby and a nice continental breakfast is included in price of room. Would return if traveling to Sarasota in the future.

Very good accomodations for the price and was clean and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. It was in a good location to see attractions. The room was very clean and the staff kept it that way. The breakfast bar was well stocked. They also are pet friendly which is one to the reason we use LaQuinta Inns.

This hotel was great value and in a great location. We were centrally located between the Sarasota attractions, restaurants, and shopping. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our room was clean and nicely decorated.

We were offered room 320 which was very nice indeed. Usual facilities of fridge, microwave and coffee making. Good free wifi service. Stayed here before some years ago and it was still as good.
Not too many eating places nearby apart from an Italian restaurant which was closed.
Good breakfast area and plenty of choice for the buffet breakfast. Would stay here again.

Great location. Near Ringling and other sites. Located on route 41. Hotel was clean and employees were helpful. The rooms and hotel are older but kept nice. Breakfast was included. It was ok We did not have children with us, so can't comment about facilities for them. We have stayed at LaQuinta Motels before and found them to be excellent value.

We were on a business/recreational visit for some business in Siesta Key. We chose to stay at the LaQuinta in Sarasota (just outside Siesta Key) based on price for value received from past experience with La Quinta Hotels. Again, we were not disappointed with our decision. La Quinta Hotels are always very clean, rooms are quite accommodating and they provide a very nice breakfast buffet for their guests. We had an AC problem that could not be resolved and were placed in a new room immediately. Without hesitation, we would stay here again when in the area.
