"Best value for a decent hotel near Ringling College of Art & Design"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 20, 2014
WindyCityTarheel | Wheaton, IL
We stayed here for 4 nights as we steamed (no humidity pun intended) into town to deliver our son who was starting school at Ringling College of Art & Design. It was pretty apparent that within 2-3 miles of the hotel on the main drag (Tamiami Trail) that this was probably the best bet for a clean, comfortable hotel in the area. We found the staff generally cheerful and helpful and the room was clean (not spic-and span, but decent). The room itself was comfortable enough, although the carpet and the two couch-like chairs in the room had certainly seen their better days. The room is dfinitely not arranged for the modern technology-laden traveler--there was a shortage of electrical plugs and one of the four-plug outlets was half hanging out of the wall--only one of the outlets seemed safe to plug in your device. The sink area was detached from the toilet and bath so that wasn't the best for privacy's sake. Best thing about the entire stay: the beds! Incredibly comfortable and proved to be 4 nights of the best sleep I've had in months. The continental breakfast fare was the usual corporate hotel variety. Overall, given some of the dump we saw up and down Tamiami Trail within 3-4 mile of Ringling, the visiting parent can be sure of a decently comfortable room--and a great night's sleep--at this La Quinta.

"La Quinta - Sarasota"

Nice newer hotel, ask for a room overlooking the bay for a nice view. The rooms are very nice also. Good room for the price if you're staying in Sarasota. The continental breakfast could have a few more options, though.

"Sarasota LaQuinta"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 10, 2014
DeeGee823 | New Port Richey, Florida
Room was OK, but sofa bed was tucked behind the a/c unit and could not be used as a fold-out. Carpet needs to be cleaned. King bed was comfortable. The bath layout is split, which makes it difficult for family stays and privacy. Staff was friendly and accommodating. No water or snack for Elite client, even with a 3-week stay. Area was near the picturesque Sarasota Bay, but really looked to be in a shabbier part of town. There was a nighttime security guard, which was reassuring...I think. I would recommend this hotel, overall, but some general improvements need to be made before it could be rated Very Good.

"The Beds Were Soooo Comfortable"

Mechell A | Lawrenceville, United States
I had an excellent experience here at this hotel. It was very clean, the beds were so very comfortable and WIFI was great. The staff was very friendly and my stay went by so smoothly. The price of my week long stay was very affordable. I will definitely use La Quinta again in the future.
