Breakfast was not a value for the cost of the room. We had to eat at a commercial because the breakfast was not much more than hardboiled eggs and frozen sausage (re-heated). Most items were fun of the mill "bread and water" choices. No fruit available. Donuts were partially thawed frozen items.

"They steal your stuff!!!"

I have some quite valuable stuff left at the hotel after I checked out. I realized that and called back in hours. The guy said cleaning staffs are off their shift and he won't be able to ask them for my left over belongings until next day. Then he told me all founded belonging will be stored in their office for couple days. This is a 100% lie. If all founded stuff are stored in the office, why can't you just go check the office and tell me if you have that? Are you trying to say that you don't have access to that office? I called back the next morning. As I expected, they didn't find anything. In addition, the hotel is located right on the highway (US19) which is too loud for sleeping. So you can't turn left on the way out. Very inconvenient. During our stay, there were a big Harley and old car party at the back side of the hotel, which gives 360 degree noise. Finally, the layout of the room is so weird. You have no place to enjoy take out food. The desk is too small and there's no coffee table. A sofa is available. Usually a sofa faces the tv, but this one faces the desk and chair, really weird.

We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. We loved how close we were to the beaches, shopping and baseball . I would definitely return here again. Great value ! Liked that the hotel wasn't surrounded by buildings, nice that there was green space behind the hotel in the form of a pond . The breakfast was fantastic, always lots to choose from.

"TOP CHOICE for LaQuinta in Clearwater!"

Don't make the mistake of going to area LQs. This is the one! From the time we checked in, the clean nice rooms, hot tub, well stocked breakfast they will treat you as a special guest. The manager actually came up at breakfast, greeted us and asked about our stay. That shows confidence in staff. Way to go LQ!

The room was not properly cleaned during the time we stayed. One curtain was partially off the it's hooks and never corrected. We found finger nail clippings on the floor that had not been vacuumed. The coffee maker was not cleaned. The iron in the room was ready for a flea market sale.
