I wrote a review two days ago, supposedly on TripAdvisor. It never showed up. I used the link I found on the LQ day-after thank you email. It never posted to TripAdvisor. Hmmm. I am trying this attempt directly off the TripAdvisor website. The motel was packed, it was a Thursday night. They don't suffer from a lack of travelers....

I was in Gainesville for a funeral and selected this hotel based on location. The rooms and lobby are recently refurbished and are very nice. All of the staff were very professional and friendly. While the exterior of the building appears more like a motel and is getting a bit old, the rooms were a pleasant surprise - very comfortable...

Stayed one night, room 119 king suite (no fridg or micro) pet fee included. We have a 200lb dog not everyone will take. Relatively newer room (flooring,carpet) room was clean. Shower was hot! Housekeeping staff was sweet. Continental breakfast was the norm. No complaints .

Later, as I looked at reviews, I got worried, but figured since management promised they would address the problem that they did. Well, that Couldn't be farther from the truth!! There were Sticky spots from drinks all over the desk, chunks of food in the...

Stayed here for one night after a long agricultural clinic at the University of Florida. Check in was very easy and pleasant. Manager was very courteous. Upon entering the room was very very clean and updated. But when I went to shower, the tub had a lot of residue on it and also noticed our AC was actually leaking and...

LaQuinta is our go-to hotel for NY/Fl travel with our dog. First here for us. This is a very large hotel, nice service very clean room. Some things out of control of staff. The Hotel itself was a little tired and could use some exterior paint. Bathroom was weird configuration and you couldn't wash your hands without disturbing a sleeper....

Hotel staff always go above and beyond in providing excellent service. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking. I've stayed at LQ hotels for months at a time while working and it's my home away from home. Located right next to expressway.

Only reason I stayed here was because of my dog. They hold 75.00 on your credit card and don't refund it for 3 days. Rip off. I will never come back. I would rather spend extra money and stay at the Marriott with me dog. Shame on them.
