Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Orlando Airport West
Great hotel at a great price!
I liked everything about this hotel... No complaints, very, very comfy beds, rooms were very clean, very quiet place, didn't get to use the pool but it was big... Great place for the money, very inexpensive... close to all major Disney parks and attractions!
Good basic hotel
We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks while we visited Orlando. When we arrived the room was clean and tidy. The maid came everyday and re-made the bed although didn't clean the bathroom completely everyday although towels were changed daily, my only complaint would be that they barely cleaned the bath out so I was inclined to not rinse it out after a shower so they would clean it properly which they did.
The breakfast was okay - quite nice to be able to eat toast or fruit in the mornings rather than eat out. We enjoyed the use of the pool which we generally had to ourselves during the whole trip.
The hotel was good for myself and my partner as really we just wanted a bed and a place to shower so we didn't mind basic, do not book this hotel if you want luxary. We both said we would go back as long as it was just us but would prefer not to stay there with children.
And also, the room doesn't have a kettle so don't expect to be able to make a cup of tea after a long day as there is only coffee making facilities.
While we were staying the hotel was also being renovated (new furniture and carpets in rooms) so you may want to bare this in mind when you read some of the older reviews on here.
Great Stay at La Quinta
Got this hotel on Priceline for $40 in early April. Rented a car at the Orlando airport and stayed for one night prior to a cruise. The location isn't really near anything but the restaurant in the parking lot is wonderful. Fish on Fire is the name and is highly recommended by the hotel. This hotel is clean and service is excellent. We used the pool and it was clean and heated. Continental breakfast was good and included a variety of items. There are several vending machines in several places around hotel as well as vending machines for soda and water. Hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating with directions, etc. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a short stay in Orlando. McDonald's and 7-11 within walking distance. Did not use hotel shuttle but know many others did. Area seemed relatively safe since we walked on a street nearby during the day. Gate by hotel is locked after 1:00 a.m.
Worst guest service EVER!!!
I found the hotel room to be nice, however, the employees were more than unfreindly. My watch went "missing" after house cleaning was in our room and the front desk clerk was very rude to me when I tried to expaline what had happened. She would not even let me finish talking before she started helping the gentleman behind me. I never got an apology for my stolen watch, and when I asked to speak to a manager, she gave me the number to the reservation line and not to him. Overall I was very unsatisfied with my expierence at La Quinta Inn.
The hotel looked acceptable at first glance, however, the maid service is atrocious. We stayed for four nights and had to go down to the front desk every day just to get fresh towels, soap, toilet paper, etc. Even after requesting fresh sheets, we came back to the room to find the same ones from the night before. After complaining to the front desk for the 3rd time, we were asked whether we had specifically requested a clean room every day. When I said that I assumed that maid service was standard, I was told that "Some people are raised differently" and "Wouldn't it be nice if everywhere was a 5 star hotel!" I would have been happy if it would have qualified for a 2 star hotel! I called the National 1-800 number to ask what their policy was for cleaning rooms on a daily basis. They said it depended on the location. I will NEVER again stay at a LaQuinta!!!
Great getaway sans Disney!
My husband and I planned a last minute trip to escape the northeast winter and ended up at the La Quinta Airport West. I picked it because it had a free airport shuttle, continental breakfast, heated pool and also provided a shuttle to local restaurants. The last was important since we were not renting a car. Our plans were just to sit by the pool and relax - no Disney for us.
Our trip began on a great note by being picked up very quickly at the airport by our wonderful shuttle driver Guillermo, who we got to know and like very much during our 6 day stay. The desk staff were very friendly and check-in was a breeze. The room was fairly clean, albeit a tad stuffy. The rooms all have outside entrances. When they say the pool is heated, they mean HOT. Almost hot tub hot, which is great if you like really warm water but it was a little stifling for my tastes, although my husband loved it. I couldn't stay in it for more than 10 minutes at a time. But it was still better than an unheated pool. They provide plenty of clean pool towels right by the pool.
The continental breakfast was wonderful, considering how horrible some can be. The only drawback was that it was served from 6-9am and when I'm on vacation, I don't want to get up at 8:30am for breakfast! I wish they would extend it to 10am. But here is what they offer: waffle makers to make your own belgian waffles; Otis Spunkmeyer bagels and muffins (blueberry, banana nut, chocolate chocolate chip); cream cheese, butter and jelly; cereal (Wheaties, Corn Flakes, Cheerios); fresh fruit; Yoplait Yogurt; apple and orange juice; coffee, tea, hot chocolate.
The free shuttle would take you to the following restaurants: Chili's, Friday's, Bennigan's, Cracker Barrel, Tona Roma's. The pick up time varied from 10-25 minutes depending on how busy the driver was but it wasn't a big deal. There was also a McDonald's practically next door and a 7-11 about a quarter mile down the road. We took some walks to 7-11 for cheap snacks and lunches many times.
We stayed for a week in early March and paid $55/night with their Spring Fever special rates. All in all, it was everything we could have hoped for and we would definitely return there again.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Check in and out was super fast, the staff was great, and the room was extremely clean and comfortable, furnished with everything we expected. I recommend this hotel to all.
Impressed with hospitality and room
I just returned from a vacation to Orlando, Daytona and Kissimmee areas in Florida. We stayed in 4 different hotels or resorts and took in 2 full days of the Disney Parks and 1 full day at the Typhoon Lagoon Water park. I was very impressed with the LaQuinta Inn, Airport West, Orlando. The rooms were superior and the contenintal breakfast was excellent along with the staff. They were more than obliging and accommodating. I would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend this Inn. Although it is a little out of the way, it is very handy to everyting and a McDonalds right across the street.
We stayed there for one night last april(2003). We got in late, were given a king room, very clean, good continental breakfast and shuttle to the airport. The desk clerk was very polite and efficient. have recommended this property to friends. We got it through Priceline at a good rate and found it worth it.
NIghtmare in Orlando
My family and I stayed at this inn last May. While waiting for the airport shuttle bus to take him to the airport, my husband sat on the sofa at the lobby. He drove us earlier to the airport for our flight to Honolulu. He returned our rental van, took a taxi back to the inn to wait for his later flight. When he was about to board his flight, he was detained by the airport police at the request of the orange county police because of an incident at the inn. Apparently a lady lost a purse and he was seen in the hotel video as being somewhere near although he claims he was seated alone in the sofa. The hotel staff provided the police with his name and his whereabouts since he took the shuttle bus to the airport. BUt the hotel staff failed to check out what happened and did not even bother to think that they had inconvenieced him terribly due to this. We have not even received an apology from any of them. Because of this incident, my husband missed a very important meeting in Manila which was the reason for his not being able to join us in our extended vacation in Honolulu. He is an executive vice president of Asia United Bank, a commerical bank in the Philippines.

... and people stood around with their cameras waiting for it to belch hot flames every 15 minutes. There was also a 3D ride through Gringott's, which was good, but the queue through the bank itself was just as good with amazing detail and lifelike goblins busy working away at their desks. After the ride we came out to find the world had been taken over by ghosts. Actually it was people who'd rushed into shops to by white plastic ponchos as the ...

We Noticed that even though it was 11pm and the park was due to close, no one was in a hurry to get us out. There were still people everywhere and I don't think they would have had the park closed until after midnight. There were still kids everywhere with little ones in strollers, which we found hard to believe! Please see my previous post for a fllipagarm of our day at the magical ...
Today Jeff and I decided to brave the Orlando outlet to see if we could find some cheap winter clothes for Andrew boy. Aunt Jana had told us how great these outlets were and that a lot of people from South America fly in to Orlando just to go to the outlets.
