Room was clean. Continental breakfast was great. Transportation from/to was costly. Felt targeted by taxi company and ripped off. Customer service tried to persuade me that online rate was discount. I called them on it any then they offered something reasonable. Have stayed at LaQuinta in other cities and microwave/frig are automatics. This location wanted me to pay more for...

This is an older hotel that has been nicely updated. The lobby/breakfast area has nice, clean couches, tables and chairs. Very pleasant area. Checkin staff was competent and pleasant. The rooms are totally renovated, clean, GREAT TV, wood tile floors and reliable free internet service. I would have given 5 stars, but for safety reasons, I prefer rooms that do...

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.

Rooms are always clean. Staff is always friendly. Rates are great. When staying for breakfast, food is always good. What's supposed to be hot is hot. What's supposed to be cold is cold. We've always stayed at a LaQuinta since we usually travel with our little dog. They are very pet friendly.

We enjoy LaQuinta with its usual amenities. Dog grass easily accessible. Easy on and off from I 75, places to eat nearby. Door to room very heavy, so they slammed when people came and went. ADA room was very spacious.

We had a reservation for a game day weekend, just one night. When we arrived we were told the only rooms with king sized beds were on the first floor. Then we were given a key to a room where someone was SLEEPING. Very scary because if they would give a key to us to an occupied room, what is...

We chose this hotel because we needed a place close to Micanopy, an old Florida town with lots of character and antiques. We also have stayed in LQ elsewhere, and knew pretty much what to expect. Since Gainesville is a college town, there are plenty of hotels, and we didn't want to spend that much for just 1 night. We...
