"Fantastic family getaway"

Excellent experience overall, nice and quiet town with wonderful beaches, La Quinta seems to have been remodeled 2 years ago and it's very nice place to stay. Front Desk very friendly, rooms very clean and comfortable, you can't beat it for the money!

Great price, great hotel...will be back!

Went to Sarasota for the Orioles spring training. The hotel was the perfect location for being close to EVERYTHING. We even went to Bradenton for a Pirates game. Close to the beaches, Armands Circle, restaurants, night life... La Quinta had the best price of all the other hotels we were looking at, and was very nice. The decor was great, room was clean and the breakfast was great... even included fresh 'make your own' waffles!!

Great stay

We had stayed here with thoughts that this place was not going to be all that good, but it far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were extremely clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was simple yet delicious. GREAT place to stay, we would definetly go back.

The Ringling Museum (Ca d'Zan Mansion) was worth the trip. Beautifully landscapped and I would recommend paying for the "secret places" tour...the house was just amazing and well worth the time and money. Plan on spending at least a half day here to see everything quickly, if you want to take your time a day is easily filled.

Great place to stay.

We were there visiting family and the hotel was near. There is a Subway next door for a quick snack, just walk over. The breakfast was great with those waffles you make yourself. We will return.
