Would not recommend staying here. Older hotel, which needed work. I found many dark hairs (we are fair haired) in the bedding. Asked for bedding to be changed, which was done promptly. Dust and hair on floor in bathroom. Breakfast was done on a budget compared to other La Quinta chains we have stayed at. I realize it was the...

But it's close. Stayed three nights and watched dozens of dogs parade in and out. We love dogs but wonder about cleanliness. This place has a great location, and that's where it ends. The doors of every room are filthy. And do NOT use the stairs, yuk. I mean YUK. The breakfast is standard but the coffee is garbage. The...

La Quinta has a very generous pet policy, which is why we chose to stay at their facilities during our travels to/from Maine and Florida. We found the Sarasota Downtown facility to be very clean and comfortable. We were pleasantly greeted at the check-in counter by Michelle - always nice to have a good experience when checking in. She asked...

The hotel is very well located and is easy to park at. The hotel is filled with pet owners and some of the animals are allowed to use the chairs and furniture in the common areas. The night was filled with the howls and barks of uncontrolled pets that were only overpowered by the sound of the Air Conditioning unit....

You'll find better value elsewhere in Sarasota and a cleaner hotel to boot. Light fixture out of order. Floors need refinishing. Dirty soap left in the bathtub soap dish. No pool light despite the fact that the pool was open until 10:00 PM.

The hotel is fine in every way except for the pet odors that permeated the room. I am allergic to cats and by morning my eyes were watering, I was sneezing and my skin was starting to itch. And to think that we paid over $200 to stay in a room that smelled like that.

Hotel has great location! Welcomed us and our dog Sam! Had treats for pup when we walked through lobby. Even watched Sam so I could get some breakfast! Everyone from maids to front desk were extremely hospitable. This is a happy place!

I have stayed here a few times as it is close to The Pines rehab facility where my father is. Hotel is always clean, people friendly, nice king rooms. Location is great to Lido Beach and places to eat.

We stayed at this hotel so that we could have an early start to the nearby Sarasota Farmer's Market on Saturday morning. It obviously is an older property that needs some love, as we heard some guests having various problems with their rooms. Our room was on the fourth floor and we had no major problems, some minor annoyances. The...
