"Friendly staff"

If you are looking for a hotel near Clearwater Beach, do not choose this one. If you are going to the Minor League Thresher Baseball game, then this hotel is close to the stadium. It is a clean hotel, but no frills. The breakfast was ok with a good variety. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We checked in after a full day of traveling with our small children. I was told that the room I purchased was overbooked and I would be staying in a regular room, but that hopefully I could switch rooms the next day. So instead of the 2 room suite I paid for we ended up in a tiny regular room... no apology or offer for a refund. The next day we were able to move to our correct room. In the bedroom part of the suite, the tv and lights wouldn't work. Called the front desk and they sent up a maintenance worker. He tapped on one of the outlets near the bed and the lights came on. So, several times throughout our visit I had to tap the outlet to make the lights and tv work. The ice machine didn't have ice in it ever... we stayed 5 nights! The dryer was so full of lint that it hardly worked and the desk wouldn't make change to use the laundry facility. The hotel was quite run-down and outdated. The mattress in the pull-out couch was terrible. It was so thin. The breakfast was ok but you had to make everything yourself in the microwave and it was always over-crowded. The ONLY good thing was that the suite was good sized and we had 2 bathrooms, although one of the drains in the shower took forever to drain.

The hotel was average. Everything was average. Did not resemble the quality of La Quinta Inn's that I had stayed before. The staff was friendly but not overly helpful. The location was quite scary! Surrounded by closed businesses, and dark areas. Did not have that much green areas to walk my dog. Twice, when I took the elevator It smelled bad!!! Next time, I will check first before picking the hotel. I am sorry!

"Stayed 3 days in a ground floor suite in July 2014"

Service is friendly and efficient. Rooms are spacious. Though older, the hotel is well maintained. Quality of breakfast selections is slightly above the average La Quinta. Morning rush from a busload of guests was handled efficiently. After they were gone, there was no evidence of such an onslaught, and my husband and I enjoyed our breakfast in a clean, well-stocked environment. Our ground floor room had a patch of grass just outside the sliding patio door, which was convenient for our canine companion. For a hotel which allows pets, we are always impressed by how clean and quiet La Quintas are. This one did not disappoint. The giant, semi-enclosed hot tub looks inviting. The swimming pool seems small, although it was not in much use during our stay. Pools are often noisy with children playing, so we avoided booking a room adjacent to the pool. Our room, on the outer perimeter of the property had parking right outside the door. All the staff were friendly and outgoing, including Carmen, Jennifer, Steven and Kayla. The hotel is on a one-way frontage road for elevated U.S. highway. Uninviting strip shopping center on one side, another hotel on the other side. Lenny's restaurant (lunch and dinner only) is in walking distance, just the other side of the neighboring hotel, but it was jammed on the morning we visited, and we opted to return to La Quinta's continental breakfast rather than wait 15 or 20 minutes for a table.If you have a car, many shops, services and restaurants are only a few minutes away on major streets.

The room was not very clean and the air conditioning was terrible, management was not very helpful, would not recommend this hotel to to someone I did not like. For the type of room you checked into, it was not a very good value.
