nice for the price

Would recommend Wed, Jul 29, 2009
This motel is close to Tropicana Baseball Field, has a beautiful courtyard even though location is on major street in the city of St. Pete - nice pool and continental breakfast. Room had no towels or soap when we checked in and it took two phone calls and a trip to the front desk to obtain these. Low price, convenient location, and tropical foliage in courtyard make this a good choice for baseball game or downtown St. Pete activities.

Attractions

North Beach in the state park is well worth the drive south on 275. Changing rooms, lifeguards and undisturbed natural beauty makes this one of the most attractive beaches. Parking is plentiful and except for tolls to get there, no charge for the beach!

Great place to stay for a Rays Game

Would recommend Sat, Jul 11, 2009
Great customer service, real well done continental breakfast and the pool was clean and enjoyable. It seems like La Quinta is really trying to please their customers.

Dining

Right behind a Denny's, kids eat free on Tuesdays!

Good Value for Family

Would recommend Sun, Jul 5, 2009
Check in was quick and effort less. Our room had easy access. Location has plenty of restaurants/grocery stores nearby. To get to the beaches you head West and there are several about 15 to 20 minutes away to choose from. A lot of hotels advertise free internet on Orbitz, this one meant it. Breakfast is nice, waffles, cereal, bagels, toast, or muffins. If you like a different kind of breakfast then there's a Denny's about 50 yards from hotel property. Pool area was nice. There is also a water fountain with benches nearby you can relax on. Not enough towels, not enough pillows, and mattresses were shot. Mattress was like a marshmallow, so my wife and I didn't get much sleep; which is why we only stayed one night. We registered for 4 people and we had 4 pillows. Towels are small so you need two to dry off with. Check out took as long as driving to the beach! There were two guests in front of me; switching rooms. Also, they must have a special card for frequent flyers/discounts which they were registering for while people were trying to check out. With only one counter person; the rest of us had to wait while these guests straightened out their mess. To be fair to the hotel, by the time these guys were done with her, they asked how long before they could move from the rooms they were in to the updated rooms, as she tried to answer them; they reminded her their in the other rooms their moving out of, so she advised them to move when they were ready. What a stupid question! Solution for Hotel, maybe more than one person around and person behind counter can call for backup while their being held hostage by yo-yos; so the rest of us can hand in our keys, get going, and write good reviews. The General manager gave his cell phone # on a card with your keys; however, if he wanted me to take him serious, then he would have replaced the mattresses with medium quality ones and given at least two pillows per person. If unsure how many people, then extra pillows in closet; or at check in person could confirm how many people in party and offer extra pillows/towels then.

Attractions

From hotel you take I-275 South; get in Left lane and take exit 23 (I 375) to The Pier. The Pier has two restaurants, and a bunch of shops. There is parking (parking meters) close the building which is an inverted pyramid, a park with a beach area, fishing around the building and on the bridge driving to and from building. There are a lot of beaches about 15 to 20 minutes away. Make sure you have quarters for parking meters. Check around as there is beach parking charging 10 a day and you can drive looking for the parking meters and pay $1 or $2, leave to have some lunch/dinner and come back. We went to Maderia beach twice. There were showers to rinse off with. Bathrooms to change clothes in. I recommend if you are leaving to put your stuff in your vehicle and walk away as people will be hounding you for your spot when they come about 1pm or later. I had to advise one lady as she told my wife to keep her car moving, "Is it OK if I get in the car before my wife gets moving?" Such a nice lady, she gave me permission to get in my car before it drives off so they can park their vehicle.

Not the Best, Not the Worst

Would recommend Sun, Jul 5, 2009
We found a used piece of soap and used shampoo in the shower and a few small hairs on 2 or 3 counter tops so the room was not as clean as we would have expected. The sheets & comforters we're fresh, but at least one comforter had some past cigarette damage. The tub in our "non-smoking" room had a cigarette burn on it, but the room didn't smell like smoke. The TV remote didn't work so we changed channels manually at the TV, but the signal would go out & come back when changing channels. The beds were a little hard, but comfortable enough to sleep. The hot water was good, but the water pressure was somewhat low & adjusting the shower head to make it spray harder caused the spray pattern to become too wide to be useful. On the plus side the A/C worked well, and the continental breakfast was good and extensive (including make-your-own waffles with 2 waffle irons, boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, cereal, toast, bagels, milk, apple juice, & orange juice). The 1st floor ice machine I used worked well; the 2nd story one I saw required use of the room key, but I didn't try it. The pool (hours 9 AM - 10 PM) looked nice, but didn't get a chance to swim in it. The central courtyard area and fountain were nice and well landscaped. Parking was good (well-lighted, in some areas) and had good shade for the morning sun on the East side of the motel (only 2 stories, no elevator seen). Vending machines were adjacent to some ice machines in the center hallways. The keys are a bit tricky - make sure you push them all the way in past the lip or else they won't work. The WiFi didn't really work in my room which was in the center but on the outside of the hotel. My laptop said I was connected to LaQuinta's Wifi, but I couldn't get any websites to pull up through their Wifi connection. It was OK for the relatively low price, but it was still somewhat less than I expected from other reviews I read. The cleanliness should have been better, the TV & remote should have worked correctly, and the Wifi should have worked. On the other hand the free continental breakfast was good and extensive and was re-stocked well by the attendant. The location wasn't good for us as we traveled back and forth to South St Pete Beach, but it was much less expensive than any place on the beach. I would recommend this motel for someone primarily looking for low cost and value.

Dining

Take advantage of the free continental breakfast in the garden cafe, but it only runs from 7 AM to 9 AM or 7AM to 10AM on weekends. Check out time is 12 PM.

Loved the pool area, friendly staff, great bed. Would like to have had more TV channels and could not purchase any movies for some reason. Over all a great place to stay and I will return.

Great value through Orbitz

Would recommend Mon, May 18, 2009
This was a great deal, decent continental breakfast, 10-20 minutes from everything, great staff- very friendly and helpful. I would definately stay there again and honestly, I'm a very picky person!

Dining

Go to Cerviche's in downtown St Petersburg. It's a tapas restaurant so you can try all kinds of things. It's divine! And the more people you have the better because then you have a reason to order more and try more!
