La Quinta Inn & Suites Clearwater Airport

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel experienced a significant water leak from their sprinkler system (burst pipes I believe) that occurred on May 26th, 2017. This caused serious water damage from third floor all the way down to the lobby and resulted in closing of several rooms. The lobby was flooded, the breakfast room closed, the carpets and walls soaked with water. On May 27th, 2017, the hotel absolutely stunk like mildew. The breakfast was relocated to a "meeting room". With the modified breakfast there was no juice machine and no refrigeration of any milks or juices which sat out for hours in pitchers. On May 28th, the breakfast became a further disappointment when it seems that their ordering of breakfast items had stopped. There was no more oatmeal and cereals ran low. They relocated two waffle makers which blew a fuse and were not repaired. The hard boiled eggs were runny in the inside. They ran out of yogurt. On May 29th, we witnessed a young girl attempt to make a bowl of cereal with the milk in the pitcher. She took one bite of it and threw it away suggesting the milk had spoiled. The staff did not replenish cereals, fix the waffle makers, replenish oatmeal or yogurt. They also had run out of whole fruit. There was no effort for apologies or compensation for anything. The stench from water damage grew worse every day. STAY AWAY!!!!!

We were transferred here last minute from another La Quinta, which was chosen for its location close to the St. Petersburg airport. This La Quinta did not have a shuttle and we ended up paying $30 for a taxi. Quite disappointing.

If you want to get kicked out of a hotel for expressing your discontent with the mildew funk of their run down rooms and be treated like a complete burden to the entire staff then this is the hotel for you! The General Manager is as evil and shrewd as they come, steer clear of this nightmare.

Room was clean and spacious. However, kind of noisy.

Front desk staff were attentive the room was clean and neat. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at they hotel. I have no complaints

Hotel is older, not as modern as I expected .. Pool was nowhere as big as pictured on website, very diassapointed!!

I went in the pool in the late afternoon, the manager then ran out and asked me to get out of it. There had been "an accident". I went to my room and immediately took a soap shower. Another person at the pool said this accident happened a while ago Why was it not immediately roped off or sign posted - not happy. The next day there was a small paper sign on the door to the pool saying closed but I think a yellow tape or sign at the stairs of the pool should have been put up for the mishap as well in case you went to the hot tub or didn't see the small door sign - management: this is unacceptable. I know a guest with a child allowed this to happen and there is not a lot the hotel can do BUT I think the health department would require more complete immediate action by staff. Breakfast didn't offer much - strictly continental with messy waffle maker. It used to be better. Overall the hotel just didn't seem fresh - needs paint and some updates inside. I have stayed here before but for these reasons I can not recommend it, will try another similar hotel nearby next time.

Lots of fun! Close enough to get around to everything!

Very welcoming and kind experience with staff and the hotel was beautiful.

Great Deal for a last minute trip. Great time.Very clean .

my husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon I had previously stayed here two other times the hotel location is wonderful to get anywhere in the short amount of time I was not a fan of the fact that the housekeeping came so early based on the fact that we were the first floor and the pool area always seem to be very dirty which is unusual as it has always been kept clean in the past.....they also have a lot of dogs to begin to stay there which usually was not a trouble except for at night time when we were trying to go to bed there was a dog barking because their owner must have not been in the room

clean place, awesome breakfast, construction time sucked, forget about sleeping in with that noise. Front desk was helpful and gave great info when needed.

This hotel charged us $100.00 for amenities.. they didnt even tell us.. I didnt realize it until after we checked in and I checked our bank account.. They refused to do anything bout it.. most hotels will charge 20 at the most.. $100.00 is ridiculous..

This was convenient for me and my mom. Quick trip, we got in late, the room was comfortable. Would definitely stay here again in a pinch.

We stayed in Room 130 at this La Quinta. The staff was ultra-friendly and nice however, our room smelled terrible. It was a harsh chemical smell that was difficult to tolerate. I did inform management upon our checking out. I sure hope they do something about it before the next person stays in the room.

Needs work on their Internet connection but hotel staff was friendly and helpful

This hotel was offering reduced rates because of construction on Ulmerton. It is a very nice hotel.

Hotel was clean, breakfast was average location was central but pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Staff never answered their phone.

This hotel is right on RT 688 and our room was right by the stop light...we heard nothing but drag racing and engine gunning all night. This hotel is nowhere near Clearwater.
