good basic hotel in convenient location

The hotel was convenient to the airport and major highways. When we arrived late at night, the desk clerk was very nice and even called me by name when i came in, saying he was expecting us and wanted to make sure we were checked in before he reconciled for the night. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was basic. We don't eat cereal or waffles so there wasn't much to choose from... For $89 it was a bargain.

Mostly OK...

The hotel was OK/nice; the staff were really friendly. There is no "real view" from the hotel; it's on a main drag with a vacant lot between the hotel and a marina that you can't really see. The hallways outside of the elevators smelled horribly of cigarette smoke. The room was clean; a little too much "air freshener" to cover up previous smokers who weren't supposed to have been there.

Clean ,comfortable and convenient

Hotel very convenient to Ringling College, where we visited with my son. Easy access to the beach areas, restaurants + attractions. Adequate facilities. Breakfast very basic, disappointing fruit/healthy food selections.

Great when visiting Ringling Museum

Visited Ringling Bros. Art Museum and Classic Car Show which we enjoyed very much. Strolled along beach shops. Ate a delicious fish meal at Barnacle Bills Restaurant.

Good location from which to visit the Ringling Art Museum and Classic Car Show. Nearby Barnacles Bills Restaurant is local favorite and I might say a favorite of my wife and myself, the food was not too expensive.

Nice clean room, noisy bathroom fan

The room and the hotel itself was clean. The hotel workers were friendly and attentive. However, the breakfast schedule was not convenient. The food was taken away at 9am during the week that I was there. The room was clean, but the bathroom fan was noisy and I believe the bed sheets were not changed during my stay. The location was perfect for going downtown and to the Siesta Key area beaches.

La Qunita Surprises

The [...]reservation worked flawlessly. But we were surprised that pets were permitted in the hotel room. Seems every time we got in the elevator there were dogs there, too. I know people with pets need to have a place to stay but I don't recall the property description saying anything about that. We had a non-smoking room but the hallway of floor we were on (4TH) reeked of smoke and that seeped into the room a bit. The property is fairly old and could use a bit of updating. But it was clean and had the usual amenities we come to expect from La Quinta.

Excellent location

Located close enough to everything but far enough away from the crowds. Decor-exceptional, contemporary, we loved it. Though, the doors sit on a wood floor and a weather strip should be added to mitigate the noise from the halls. Nice, helpful front desk staff. Breakfast display is not set up for a crowded holiday boat race weekend. The waffle-making held up the whole morning. So we did not get breakfast after returning twice to the lounge, but this would not stop us from returning and would stay there again, hopefully soon.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

OK, not exactly a short drive, but definitely worth the drive and the wait. The SandBar at the end of AnnaMarie, friendly, excellent food and you can't put a price on the sunset.
