"Stayed here for 8 years..NEVER AGAIN"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 1, 2014
A TripAdvisor Member | 
We have stayed at this hotel for the last 8 years and will never stay here again. They never came and fully cleaned our room. The first day they made one bed, didn't clean the trash, left 0 towels, didn't even clean the poop stain my son left in the toilet. I had to go get sheets and towels and make my own room up. The second day they made the bed but again did not clean the bathroom or room. That tells you they don't actually clean these rooms so if you stay here you are sleeping in filth. The customer service here tops it all, I never once received an apology and when speaking to the general manager he offered me $20 for my problems. What a load of crap. For a Military family who has stayed there for 8 years and never complained they offer $20. I told him no thanks I will just take my business elsewhere, the guy didn't even care. I will never stay at another Laquinta again. I called their custome service and they wanted to connect me back with the general manager I had already spoken with and was calling to complain about. WOW.

"Horrible odors abound!"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 30, 2014
Robert T | Sarasota, United States
Our first room smelled awful! We had to use the restroom after our drive, and the handle broke off the toilet. The room was simply not what we expected so we drove down the street to find another hotel but they were booked solid. We returned and were given another room which was in a little better shape but still had quite an odor. We purchased glade plug ins but they had the effect that room spray does after someone stinks up the bathroom. Rooms were in mediocre condition at best. I was carrying things to the car when my hotel keys stopped working at 11:50. I had to go to the front desk where I was made to wait in line despite stating my issue. The folks in the room next to us left a hound dog locked in their room where it bayed ALL DAY. Horrible experience. Cheapest room near Sanibel/Captiva. No other redeeming qualities!

"LQ Ft. Myers"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 27, 2014
Kenn H | Cocoa Beach, United States
We read some other reviews about this place, but dismissed the negative ones by what they said and how they said it. Some people love to think they are important critics. We had a wonderful stay, it was clean, the staff was helpful, friendly and competent and the breakfast was more than adequate. We will return when we stay in Fr. Myers in the future. We will also relocate our motel to a LQ when we return to Venice, FL in the future. The motel was close to everything we wanted to visit. Check in was a breeze. Great job LQ.

"Nice room and close to everything"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 23, 2014
PensacolaBeach B | Gulf Breeze, Florida, United States
We booked here while on I-75 on the way back from Key West. It was late and going by reviews and location it seemed good. We loved the room on the back side, very quiet. We ended up staying 2 nights and it was no problem for the front desk clerk to set us up in the same room for the next night. A/C was good and cold, bed was comfortable, and bathroom was really nice. It had a huge flat screen and nice sofa to sit on before crashing that night. Went to the lobby for breakfast and it was packed! But the very patient and friendly lady was making sure everything was filled for the guest. I must say she was VERY patient with all the people crowding around the waffle and bagel stations. It did take some time but we got a good breakfast and took it out to the screened in porch to eat overlooking the pool. The pool looked great even though we never had time to get in. Outlet mall was located across the street which the wife loved and found great deals. Very close to Time Square for dinner and the beach, Sanibel not far either. We have stayed on the beach before on our way back but we weren't that impressed so we will definitely make this our new place to stop from now on. Very quiet and it really wasn't far to drive to get to any of the main attractions we like.
