An excellent experience

Given the price per night, our three stay at La Quinta was absolutely excellent. The staff were very friendly, polite, and professional. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was just fine. There is a Publix grocery store within a walking distance. There is also a CVS pharmacy store next door.

OK location but that's the best I can say

Sorry, this place was dirty. Curtains and carpet stained. I felt the same about the LaQuinta in West Palm Beach. Definitely not a hotel I would stay at again or recommend.

Cramped, uncomfortable room

I booked this for 3 people thinking it was a suite but in fact the room was very small and the "foldout" bed for the 3rd person was not functional - they did provide a roll away bed which could barely be folded out in the room. Also, the bathroom arrangement (sink basically in the sleeping area) was very uncomfortable.

Nothing kills a bad brand faster than good advertising.

Went to Miami for the football national championship. We previously had good luck staying at this brand in Indy. But this place was a disaster. The entire "non-smoking" hotel smelled like smoke with heavy-duty chemicals used to mask the smell. It was so strong that it gave us headaches. We had to wash and dry clean everything we brought, even stuff we never took out of suitcases. The entire property was poorly maintained, and a skin job was applied to an old motel. Staff was barely helpful. Oddly, there was a newer same brand hotel about a block away, but we weren't allowed to transfer because our reservations were through this travel service. I asked, and found out that this is a company-owned property. It was listed as 3 stars. It deserves no stars and should be demolished. Now I'm questioning the rating service on this travel site. Can these stars be bought? Really, this is one of the worst places I've ever stayed in my life in any country, foreign or domestic. These guys don't have "their ducks in a row." And if "kicking butt and taking names was real, this place would be out of business.

Worst Hotel Visit

Room condition was unacceptable, air conditioner was not working correctly and was very loud. Carpet was in poor condtion, overall the room required a major over haul.
