The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's staff, location, value and rooms.

Many reviewers praised the hotel's staff, characterizing them as efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with restaurant recommendations.

The hotel's location was enjoyed by numerous guests, who found it close to Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, restaurants, shopping, public transit and the Orange County Convention Center. One patron noted, "The location is great, very close to the Universal parks and pretty close to everything else. We didn't take longer than 20 mins (with traffic) to go anywhere we wanted".

Several lodgers were pleased with the hotel's value, describing the rates as reasonable, affordable and inexpensive, and also cited the free breakfast as adding to the hotel's worth. One reviewer mentioned the hotel was, "A good step up from the dumps for not much more money but not far off the high end places at nothing near the cost - Great value for the location!".

The hotel's lodgings were also complimented by several guests. They described their rooms as clean, spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds. A few patrons had complaints about their rooms, however (see below).

Guest Recommendations
"Excellent location. Staff is friendly and helpful. You can buy tickets for Disney, universal, etc at the hotel right next door. Breakfast was good (serve yourself style). Lovely waffle makers (you make your own): lots of fun! Kids love it. Very, very close to International drive and all the restaurants. You can get a mini fridge for about an extra $ 10 per night. No pampering, this is not a spa or a five star hotel: If you are looking for a place to sleep comfortably, bring your pet, take a lovely hot shower, have a good breakfast and then hit the road for a good price, this is the best place. I will definitively return to La Quinta as soon as I can."
