My wife and I were participating in the Tour of Sebring cycling event. This event is hosted from the Kenilworth Lodge, but it was completely booked for the weekend. So we chose the La Quinta, because of: 1) Its close proximity, 2) recommended by the event sponsors, and 3) good rating on TripAdvisor. This turned out to be a good pick!
Our first impression was very good. The hotel was clean and appears to be newly remodeled. The staff were quite friendly upon check-in, the room smelled clean and fresh, and everything seemed in order. Good start!
(Later, when we saw the Kenilworth Lodge, we were VERY happy we chose La Quinta. The other location is very, very, old, and well, it looks it. But anyway…)
We also ate from the complimentary breakfast both mornings, and each time it was well-stocked and attended to by friendly staff. And they have make-your-own waffles, which is always a winner for me.
Here’s the only thing that kept me from giving them a 5-star rating. When we checked out the room, we noticed there was only one washcloth, and no hand towels. Probably an oversight… so was asked at the front desk. They gave us three more washcloths, but said we would have to get hand towels from the housekeeper. Not a big deal... However, the next day, the housekeeper took all the washcloths and left us with only one again, and still no hand towels! Very strange!
This is a pet-friendly hotel. I enjoyed seeing the dogs there. But note that if there are inconsiderate owners, you could be in for a long night.
Bottom line: If I spend time in Sebring again, I will choose this hotel.
