Everything was excellent. Loved the towel animals that were prepared and sitting on the bed when we arrived. Great location, close to the highway and shopping area. Staff was very friendly. Check In process was great.

Only place to stay when traveling with pets. Our family will always stay at La Quinta when we travel. We go from KY to FL twice per year and plan with this group every time. You make us and our pets feel welcome.

Getting in and out of the hotel is difficult due to the amount of traffic. Parking was very tight and not very much green space if you are bringing a pet. The room was big and clean. Breakfast is good but did not include eggs and sausage like many other hotels.

Room was nice kept clean, as I was there a week. Staff was very courteous while maintaining my privacy. There was a wonderful breakfast daily and the buffet was well stocked. Juice and coffee were left open so when I and others came in during the afternoon to change before dinner we could avail ourselves. Restaurants within walking distance!

Needing to get out of the way of Hurricane Matthew, we went out of harms way and stayed at the Gainesville La Quinta. They were very accommodating with a very pleasant staff. From the time of check in until we checked out everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was great.
