stressout at laQuinta Sarasota

Great spot were it not for"pet friendly" policy. We endured almost 3 hours of non-stop barking and whining of a dog left on its own in a neighbouring room. Could not relax or watch favourite TV programs. Had to call front desk 3 times and finally went to front desk in person, bleary eyed and exhausted, and asked if they couldn't remove the dog until the owners returned. Front desk did everything they could but policy prevents room entry by staff. Spoke to the manager the following morning.He graciously offered to remove the charge for the stay. Top marks for the staff but their corporate policy allowing dogs needs to be revisited and more out in the open.

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.
