“barking dogs”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

If you are not traveling with a pet and want a quiet night--do not stay here! This hotel does not have a floor or set of rooms away from pets for anyone with allergies or who might want a quiet night. A dog started barking and then the whole wing followed-- during day and night!
We complained to the Gen Mgr. Adam, suggesting that he keep an area for non-pet people-- he did not say he'd do that!--- all rooms are for pets
So-- we were forced to move!--- we love pets , but this was ridiculous!
Check La Quintas before staying and ask if they have a floor or 'wing' that is pet-free, if you want to be sure.

Room Tip: If traveling with dogs--this is OK if you don't mind the barking

We are members of La Quinta rewards we have the visa card and know that if we are at a La Quinta we will have a new bed and a great TV and an awesome Breakfast. However, This one was so beautiful it had wood floors with the mirror and a sitting room with It's own T.V. we drove a couple miles to watch the sunset and sit by the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful with directions. Our motto is if in doubt start at La Quinta then look for something closer to the beach later. Especially when the hotels are super old and you just don't know. I would rather drive to the beach and be comfortable and safe at La Quinta

Room Tip: Use your upgrade ticket on this one if you have it it is worth it.

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed from first sight. Architecture looks like Old Sarasota...wood floors, wonderful entrance under portico. Our greeting was sincerely friendly and the room was impressively clean and decorated for the money we paid. Chose it because it was close to the Ringling Museum. Recently joined the La Quinta Pass program because of this hotel. Sure we could have paid another $100 for a more upscale hotel, but for the extra we saved, we dined out at a local fish place and felt very smug in the process!

The staff is friendly and the rooms have relatively newish decorations. But, this hotel literally stinks. How I missed those comments from the previous reviews, I don't know, but I regret choosing the hotel because it really smells bad. Even the elevator smells (more like body odor than smoke or pets) and the hallways not only smell but are littered with dirt marks. It's a shame because the location is good and the decorations are tasteful and on the newer side. But, the smell's a problem and we wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed here while on a family trip. The price was reasonable and the room was very nice and clean. We even had a view of the bay from our room.The staff was friendly, especially the staff taking care of the breakfast buffet. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room on the top floor was very quiet.
