“Nice accommodations for SPI--dog friendly, too!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

The hotel was clean and the staff was very accommodating. There was some temporary, light construction going on but they moved us quickly and easily to another room AND found hypoallergenic pillows for my allergic boyfriend. They accommodated our dog, and everyone loved her and were very friendly about seeing her around the hotel. The hotel is literally right on a nice beach that connects to AndyBowie state park. As soon as you walk out the back door, you see miles of beach to walk/run/explore. They offer breakfast every morning, which was standard La Quinta fare, but perfectly fine and saved us time and money having to hunt down a breakfast place. The internet connection was pretty slow--don't expect the fastest broadband connection possible--but this did not really hinder our enjoyment of the island. A great location and home base for our exploration of SPI.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a "pool view" room with a balcony. It's a MUCH NICER view!

We spent four days at the LaQuinta Inn SPI and thought the location was very good. If you want to be away from the downtown area then this location is ideal. It is located right across from the birding center and Sea Turtle rescue Center which are both worth a visit. There was music and fireworks right next door which was a nice touch. Hotel is OK, about what you would expect from a LaQuinta, however, the staff was very friendly and helpful.

the stay was fine, but we got over charged, not feeling so good about LaQuinta now. the Hilton was cheaper, I was there to work and just because a bunch of bikers are in town should not mean you get charged $280/per night.

Hi Gordon,

We’re disappointed you were unsatisfied and felt overcharged during your stay at La Quinta. You must have arrived during the BikeFest week when rates were slighter higher than usual. We hope you were still able to enjoy your stay while here for business. Thank you for giving us a shot and we hope you will at least consider us the next time you travel to SPI.

We spent 5 days in room 419. The front desk gave us partial view room which was so nice. The room has two comfy beds and a futon that folds to a bed. Our three children and two adults stayed in the room. While it could be a little cramped, for the price it was totally worth it. The floors are tile and the room needs to be swept daily for sand. The house keeping was ok. They made beds and provided daily fresh towels. If you need more than its best to ask (I swept the room daily). The hotel is located directly on the beach. The pool is heated. The Hilton is next door and has good food and starbucks. There is a bar on the other side and a bar at the hotel. The hotel bartender was excellent and friendly. I recommend having a pain killer. One is all you need. The breakfast was excellent. Tortillas, refried beans, eggs, sausage, hot and cold cereal with fruit. Enjoy!

Great view of ocean and super location. Excellent staff, all very sharp and helpful. Loved the beach access, but pool is unheated. Parking was not a problem at all. Breakfast buffet is boring, go next door to Hilton. Very dog friendly which is great for us, we missed our pooches at home but will bring them next time.

We planned our visit around the spring breakers and it turned out to be a wonderful trip. We stayed 5 nights at this hotel and were basically pleased with our stay. The hotel is right on the beach so there is not much walking to do to get down to the beach. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We were given pool towels instead of bath towels in our room because apparently spring breakers relieved the hotel of quite a few of them but they received a new shipment of bath towels while we were there so that didn't last but a couple of days. The pool towels are considerably thinner than the bath towels. The pool was very nice and warm. The rooms were comfortable (pillows were very thin though). Hotel room floors were tile which was great considering it is a beach hotel. The comforter on our bed was stained but we always remove those anyway since they don't appear to get washed often. The only problem with this hotel is that it is right next door to Clayton's Beach Bar and to the Hilton so if you don't want noise and loud music, make sure an event isn't going on during your stay. Biker Fest had a party the night before we left on the deck outside our hotel (I think it belonged to the Hilton) and we were miserable until they shut it down at 11:30. In all, a pretty enjoyable stay.
