We stayed here 3 nights. The room was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We used the swimming pool each night and it was warm and clean. This property is about 5 miles from UF and their hospitals. It was convenient for our needs.

The interior of the hotel looks great, exterior not so much. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast sufficient but a little heavy on the "starch group" for me, although I did enjoy making the little waffles! The property is in a great location for UF touring, in fact you just have to get on 26 and the...

First off, we our La Quinta fans, their pet policy is best in the business! Room had all the comforts of home, even a recliner for hubby to watch T.V. Decor was updated, and a good size pool. And always a plus, a convenient location!

A bit dated but clean. Friendly staff with good dinner recommendations. Rooms are comfortable. Good location. Close to highways and business area with restaurants and shopping.Haven't stayed at a La Quinta for several years but they deserve another chance.

My wife and I spent 8 days here and were generally satisfied. The room was clean with comfortable beds and a good TV. When we checked out I advised the manger that the toilet needed to be flushed several times as the water level in the tank was not set right, and my wife missed a safety bar in the...

This was the worse LaQuinta stay so far. I usually like LaQuinta's but the site is old and needs some major updates. The bath tub had chips and stains, the beds were small and the place is a motel not a hotel. It was a $120 stay that was worth no more than $65.

We found La Quinta to be reasonably priced, clean, good breakfast, great staff. It is within walking distance of a few good restaurants. Red Lobster, Han Chinese, Taco Bell and a few more. I read some poor reviews, don't know what they were talking about!

Overall my experience was a very good experience. The staff was very nice. Check-in and check-out was easy and quick. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable and provided a good night's rest. The bath tub could have been cleaner and the toilet seat made out of a cheap plastic. Other than those two things, I was very...
