The best thing about this hotel is the convenient location--price is also more reasonable than other options close by. Room was reasonably comfortable and clean. I love my dogs but I have discovered that I have no interest in staying at a pet friendly hotel with other folks' dogs since I don't travel with mine. Dogs yapping in rooms and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 December 2016

We always enjoy coming to the LaQuinta in Sarasota. It's conveniently located on the water. The rooms & lobby were up graded several years ago. Showing some wear, but still nice. Forget the breakfast. Cold choices and not attractive. Enjoy a local restaurant if that's an important meal.

I would rate this stay 7 out of 10 if it weren't for the roaches. This brings my review down to a 2. I have stayed at LaQuinta's hotels in other States and found the company to provide a nice, reasonably rated rooms with great amenities. The continental breakfast is a real plus, especially for families. I would continue to...

I don't think our recent stay could have been much better. We had 10 of us staying in three rooms and we all had the same opinion, which was how awesome the staff treated us. I have stayed at many hotels over the years and many had staff that did not realize how to represent the hotel in a positive...

Rooms smell of dog, I would not stay at this hotel again. The location is great close to down town Sarasoda, reasturants, liquer stores. Meet good people there but the biggest complaint is the smell of dog.

Rooms on fourth floor a bit tired and needing a remodel. Staff friendly. The computer you get to use is essentially worthless. Location is good if you wish to drive out to St Armonds to walk the circle or go to Lido beach.

The hotel advertises as pet friendly, so we called directly and were assured that there were certain rooms that were pet friendly and others that were not. So we booked, upon arrival was told ALL ROOMS were pet friendly but assured rooms were cleaned thoroughly. Room, a/c filter and such looked clean. And if you are a pet owner you...

Would not recommend staying here. Older hotel, which needed work. I found many dark hairs (we are fair haired) in the bedding. Asked for bedding to be changed, which was done promptly.
