"Nice Location but confused service that treats Hotwire customers as unimportant."

I have stayed in 4 new hotels on this trip. We just decided to do it different and mix it up. This was the first. I came at 3 p.m. Person said my room needed to be cleaned- I wanted a quiet room and sat down to wait- for ONE HOUR. New clerk tells me, I "cannot have this room because it was shampooed." She looks at the booking and rudely says" what do you want ME to do about it?" I get another room and a lot of attitude. Once inside, both lights by bed had no light bulb and the scone x cross the room by the TV was hanging by a wire. Not enough towels and when i went to check out, the morning desk clerk was clueless. I tried to tell him abt the maintenance issues, and 30 seconds after I start talking, he takes a phone call. No excuse me, just picks up the phone,. I used to stay at La Quinta's in one city in JAX- reliable and nice. New customers from places like Hotwire can be an opportunity for more business. Treat them badly and they will never go back. Goodbye brand. Train your people! Other places for the fairgrounds at reasonable prices too.
Room was clean, right across the street from Mid Florida Ampitheater. Easy access to venue. Fast return after concert. Room had a micro and fridge, BIG PLUS! Staff was friendly and location was great! Price was reasonable. Enjoyed our stay.
watch for any strangers approaching you when getting luggage out of car! Excellant clean quality of room and stay. The only problem was a scarpe to me when getting my luggage and a strange man came from nowhere behind me. Said he was drunk but smelt of no booze. He followed me into hotel. I went to fro t desk to say something to attendant. The stranger went out straight to back door straight ahead of attendant desk. I mentioned this to attendant, you g man, but no concern was given nor done. This did worry and upset me. I didnt want this man to know where my room was. Othetwise I rate this hotel 10 plus. Will stay again.
"Old motel that needs a lot of cleaning and repair"

We have never stayed at a La Quinta before, but we were looking for a one night sleepover as we traveled to Key West, so we decided to give this place a try. It is an old property, but we've stayed at older but well maintained motels in the past, so we were open-minded. We are noe very close-minded about La Quinta. This place was very poorly maintained and dirty. The sink vibrated when we turned it on. The floor and walls in the bathroom were dirty and mildewed. The wall behind the TV had a large, rectangular portion of a different color with mounting hardware exposed - probably was a mirror there at one time. DO NOT STAY HERE! There are plenty of similarly priced choices nearby.
This an average hotel. We stayed just one night. Very close to the Seminol Hard Rock casino and fairgrounds. No complaints. The breakfast is the expected fare. It was fine. Priced appropriately. Keep expectations at a reasonable level and you will find everything acceptable.
