I have stayed at this hotel many times. Very clean, good breakfast selection and excellent rapid service. Sarasota is a wonderful city to visit. Great restaurants and art museums. Great beach. Ringling museum which depicts the circus which wintered in Sarasota is breathtaking. A must on your trip.

I need to pre-qualify this statement based on the fact that this is the first I've ever stayed at. I found that it was dog friendly when the neighbor down the halls dog barked at us as we walk past. If you're a dog lover that's fine well and good some of us take vacation to get away from such...

Not the nicest hotel I've stayed in, but the rooms were comfortable and spacious. We did not want a fancy place as we only slept and showered in the rooms. I would rate this hotel 'good'. One day our room was not cleaned because we left the 'Do not Disturb' sign on the door while we were at breakfast. No...

La Quinta was a perfect location for our Ringling College open house and tour. Our room faced the back and was nice a quiet. Note that this hotel allows dogs, and there were a few barking incidents which didn't bother us but may bother others. Staff were all super nice and accommodating when we needed a later check out time....

Booked a room and loved it - particularly the people working there. Debbie, Tashara, and Michelle did a great job taking care of everything, while Yalanga kept my room clean and spotless. Thank you gang! The one annoyance I would list is that other guests can be annoying leaving their (multiple) dogs freaking out in their rooms at night... :(

This was a very nice room with a view at a very attractive coupon rate. Good quiet location near town, bridge to islands and the airport. The surrounding are seemed kind of deserted but it was still off season.

Free breakfast was not much to talk about. Pool is very tiny. Rooms are clean. Accepts pets. Too many dogs there. Not much of a view for being at the Sarasota bay location. Not sure if I would stay here again
