      Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Orlando International Drive

      Great value.... location... everything.

      from

      I reserved La Quinta for my handicapped mother who is a big complainer. It was clean, the staff was great and the location is super convenient. My mom had no complaints at all... even complimented it several times..... a miracle... yippee!!!!

      I live in Orlando so am familiar with the area... and know how bad traffic can be on International Drive... but the hotel access is just around the corner from the ramp to I4... just south of Sand Lake. It's in a cul de sac so you don't see the traffic... it's as secluded a feeling as is possible in that area.

      Also.. there are tons of great restaurants within walking distance... or a short cab, or I-drive trolley ride away.

      They have a great pool area... a nice little poolside bar with food that opens in the evening, hot tub, etc.

      They even take PETS.

      You really can't find a better deal on I-drive.... though if you want to spend a few more dollars... stay at any of the higher end ROSEN Hotels.... the Plaza, or the Centre. Mr. Rosen's Quality Inn on I-drive is a great family/value hotel... with a nice restaurant also and the kids will meet friends quickly at the pool.

      Harris Rosen, the owner, is the nicest millionaire/billionaire I've ever met... he does tons of charity work... gives back to the community in numerous ways and his hotels are a reflection of his "down home - good guy" personality.

      Both his larger hotels are on either side of the convention center... so convenient if you have business there... and they have a new golf course off I-drive called Shingle Creek... you'll probably get a deal there if you play.

      Nice hotel for area

      from

      I know the hotels around Disney World are used hard, but the La Quinta has held up well. It's nothing fancy, and the hotel definitely shows signs of wear. However, the rooms are large and clean, and the continental breakfast is very nice. Unfortunately, a busy freeway runs along the back of the hotel, so if I stayed there again, I would request a room facing the pool. It was a little noisy, but otherwise, it was a nice stay.

      Fantastic Hotel

      from

      My boyfriend and I stayed at the La Quinta Inn at Jamican Court between the 25 November - 2 December 2004 and had a wonderful experience.

      On arrival at the hotel the reception staff were very friendly, the room was great and had everything you would ever need. We booked through CRS Hotels and got a rate of $48 per night which was great compared to other websites.

      Our room was on the ground floor but there is elevators to the other floors so you don't have to carry your luggage up stairs. The room was very quite and near to the pool area. The pool bar was good and there was a good choice of cocktails. The bar staff were also very friendly.

      Breakfast in the mornings were well stocked, but after three morning in a row of eating waffles you may feel a bit sick. There was plenty of bread, fruit, yogurts, cereal and muffins as well as jucies, tea and coffee.

      The hotel was just a short walk to the nearest I-Ride stop and across the road from the Mercado.

      There is a courtesy bus to Disney which we used one day. I would suggest if you are a nervous passenger to find a different way to Disney.

      I would definately stay here again and recommend it to everyone.

      La quinta august 2004

      from

      Party of 4 - 2 adults 42 and nearly 40, 2 kids 10 and 15

      We went for 3 weeks in august, when we arrived they had no record of our booking which was the problem of the UK agent not theirs but they helped by booking us intemporarily till we sorted it

      the room was small but clean, it overlooked the pool on the ground floor near the bar

      the breakfast started with muffins and bagels but nealry every day something was missing from the breakfast buffet and the muffins(the only things my girls would eat) stopped altogether.

      The location was great near enough to I-Drive to be useful to walk but far enough off it to avoid the traffic noise, but the I-4 was at the back so I don;t know if there was any road noise there

      I woul defintely go back to this hotel

      Great value for money, best on I-drive

      from

      We stayed at La Quinta for a week in July, and it was perfect as a base to visit the theme parks. It is situated 2 minutes away from the Sand Lake junction of I4 and also has a free shuttle service to Disney World. We had a double deluxe room which was pretty spacious, fresh and clean, and had a fridge and microwave. We asked for a pool view, which is the best location because if you have a room at the back of the hotel I can imagine the traffic noise from nearby I4 would be annoying. The girls on reception were friendly and helpful and the free breakfast was a nice bonus. It was booked via the internet and for 7 nights we paid 390 dollars!! That is unbelievable value. We left Orlando and stayed at the Ramada in St Augustine (disappointing) and then later at the Days Inn opposite Busch Gardens (BIG mistake) and both were more expensive and of lower standard.

      Well done La Quinta, we will see you again.

      DEFINATELY A GREAT HOTEL!!!!!! BOOK IT!!!!!!

      from

      We (2 couples) have returned home in July from a fortnight in this hotel and we would highly recommend it!!! The hotel is situated in the centre of intl drive within walking distance to plenty of restaurants, bars, shopping, buses e.t.c. It's ideal for someone not taking a car.. The transfers to Disney is very handy getting picked up at the hotel entrance. Everything about the hotel was kept very clean and tidy. The rooms were very spacious, well equiped and were cleaned daily (incl towels). The Staff were very friendly, pleasant and helpful. We couldn't of asked for a better hotel, we will definately be going back to stay here!!!!!!!!!!

      Highly Recommended

      from

      We recently stayed in this hotel for 8 nights during the month of May 2004. Being a superb hotel with the convenient location in the International Drive, we highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Restaurants and shops are within walking distance from the hotel. The front desk staff are courteous and pleasant. The rooms are clean, and the house keeper are on top of everything. The free breakfast they offered are abundant and plentiful. The free shuttle to Disney is an added bonus in staying in this hotel.

      Can recommend it

      from

      Have been in this la Quinta 1st week of March 2004As long as you have a room to the poolside, its really good. Its a bit like a resort.All other rooms are very loud because of near I-4.The rooms are clean and well equipped.The pool rather big and warm.Breakfast good.The location on middle of I-Drive very good.I extended stay from planned 1 night to 7 nights (but changed to a poolside room).Would go back anytime.Regards Frank

      We'll be back

      from

      Checked in Jan 2004. Very clean hotel, obviously just renovated.

      Excellent location. Pool area very clean,Staff very helpful especially Jen in bar. Will be back

      Sorry I chose la quinta inn

      from

      Just spent seven nights (Nov.2,2002) at La Quinta Inn at Jamaican Court off International Drive. The location was great, easy walking distance to Macado Shopping Center which had free live bands nightly and loads of great restaurants within a ten minute walk but I'm sorry I chose the La Quinta Inn.

      I had two rooms (105 and 107), the beds and pillows were terrible! Beds were sagging and you could feel the springs. The pillows were the flattest I have ever seen, both these items should have been thrown out years ago. I asked front desk if they could do some thing about the springs.....they put on an extra mattress pad. Not many channel choices on the TV and the pool was not heated so I didn't even use the pool. It only cost $40 a night to stay there but it still wasn't worth it. I could have stayed at the Quality Inn Plaza for $30 a night with a heated pool.

      ... days so I wasn't shocked about how much is was going to cost.

      I walked in after paying and I got my map which was definitely needed because this park was huge! I was going to be a big day of walking around and doing things. The park was so clean and had a lot of staff on and heaps of little attractions and mascots walking around for people's entertainment.
