"Very good and good customer service"

I was in La Quinta Inn Hotel for two nights. It was a good experience, room was clean. Just a little bit cold because of air conditioner but it wasn't a big deal. Staff was friendly and ready to help if you needed them for any information or service. It is not a luxury hotel but you can be comfortable if you stay there.

Friendly and attentive staff, which is always a plus! Great hotel for the price. Clean rooms. I forget to bring toothpaste and the front desk provided it, at no charge. Amazingly CLEAN The room and the bathroom were spotless. Needs more breakfast options. The best thing I can say, is I would absolutely stay there again !!!

Hotel is across the street from Florida State Fairgrounds, very short drive to Ybor City. Shopping and supermarkets also close by. Best of all, there's a Five Guys burger joint right next door, which is incredibly handy for a filling, low-priced lunch or dinner.

"Much needed mini vacation ruined!"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Mar 18, 2014
CJ B | Deltona, Florida
Upon arriving, my husband, son and I were met by a beautiful "working woman" and her "friend" setup at the front door! Upon entering the hotel we were struck by the smell of must, mold, cigarettes and wet animals. Being the optimistic family that we are we accepted room 235 and headed up. The smell inside the room emulated the one we encountered in the lobby, throughout the elevator ride and clean up to the front door of 235! As if that weren't horrible enough, we found the beds to have indentations in the mattresses that screamed "we are really old mattresses"! The smell coming out of the air conditioner was so overpowering that we turned it off immediately and put our bags on TOP of the desk! Upon entering the bathroom we found it to have towels that truly appeared to have been used prior to our arrival and refolded for our convenience. The last straw came upon my son lifting the toilet seat to find the urine and "lint/dirt" stain underneath as well as urine that had leaked down the side, and apparently remained there long enough to go from highlight yellow to muddy brown!!! I tried....I really did, to make it work...so I went to management and asked for Lysol, Air freshener, clean towels and advised them of the pooled urine in and around the toilet, to wit the front desk clerk said "hmmm...and oh really"! Needless to say the clerk handed me some "cleaner" towels, a bottle of "industrial cleaner / air freshener" and said she would "let them know" about the toilet. Can you imagine risking our health as well by chancing their "free continental breakfast" too!!! End result: We left the hotel approximately 4 and a half hours after checking in and was charged a whooping $94.00 for our "stay"! I apologize to my family for ruining our much needed / much deserved mini vacation by choosing this hotel. I will make it up to you guys soon...promise!! To La Quinta...you should be ashamed to send me a request for a review and not my money back!! I wouldn't even mind if it was prorated like it was for the other "guest"!

"Gambled on a great room."
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Mar 6, 2014
We were very disappointed with the hotel as far as the upkeep. When we entered there was a very unpleasant smell throughout the hotel. It smelled like a mixture of soured carpets, cigarette smoke and animals. The carpet in room 304 was dirty and stained. The smell coming from the air conditioner was horrible. Very small bathroom without a sink. The hotel staff was nice and pleasant. The complimentary breakfast was okay. The beds were very comfortable and very clean. Would have given a better review if the smell wasn't so overpowering. We will not stay here again. This hotel was very convenient to the Hard Rock Casino which was a plus.
