I love this La Quinta Hotel in Sarasota. I always stay here when visited my Mother who lives in town and it feels like my second home. Debbie greets me at the front desk and says "Welcome back". And Christina, of breakfast room fame, goes overboard keeping it stocked with food, coffee and CLEAN. They are both treasurers and have...

My husband and I stayed overnight with our two dogs and were surprised with the size of the room. We visited Sarasota for the annual Very Merry Jerry day at the local wslr radio station's Fogartyville Community Center which was nearby. We were thrilled about the breakfast that was included but didn't realize it ended so early at 9am. We...

I continue to come back to this hotel because the rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Although it's been months since I was last here, the staff recognized me and tried to make me feel welcome. The breakfast they offer is underwhelming. Breads, cereals and waffles are mostly what's available. Red apples, yogurt and juice are also available. Hard to...

The exterior and interior areas of this hotel are very clean and well appointed. The staff was very courteous and our room was ready an hour before check in time. Room was clean, the bed was comfortable. TV was small, shower had poor water pressure. If you want breakfast get there early because it ends at 9 AM.

Very clean, quick check in and out, friendly staff. Would recommend. My extended family stayed in different rooms. They put all of us close together without even being ask. It is close to downtown Sarasota and close to Fruitville road so it makes access to I-75 very easy.

Check your sheets before you lay down. I paid more attention to the cleanliness of this room than I usually do because this is my first time staying in a hotel with an infant. After pulling back the covers to lay baby on the sheets, we saw quite a few hairs all over. It looked like a dog had probably...

the room was very comfortable, clean, but it was not quiet, due to a barking dog down the hall, it never stopped. the staff was very friendly. the hotel has a view of a waterway. the breakfast had a good selection. the hotel is close to the ringling estate.
