During a recent (May 2022) vacation we stopped off for the evening at the La Quinta Inn and Suites just off I-75 along the outskirts of Lake City, Florida In the past, I’ve found La Quinta offers a good value and comfortable accommodations This particular La Quinta fulfilled exactly that

Check-in was easy, even at near midnight when we stopped We had an option of a king bed albeit on a pet-friendly floor or a double on non-pet floors We opted for the king bed despite not traveling with any animal companions This worked out just fineThe room was spacious with a very comfortable lounge chair and stand perfect for using a laptop Otherwise, the room had a decent flat screen TV, microwave, fridge, and coffee station tucked in an alcove by the bathroom, and various furnishings for luggage or storage The room was clean, though being on a pet floor did have a sort of cleaning scent you might smell at a veterinarian office It was not offensive by any means, but if it might bother you and you are without an animal, consider rooming on one of the non-pet floorsThis La Quinta had one of the most comfortable beds I’ve enjoyed during travels – I’d rate the mattress as medium-firm After a good night’s rest, I was glad to enjoy an excellent breakfast complete with hot waffles, eggs, sausage, and biscuits + gravy The breakfast is included with your stay, of course, but I suggest being sure to have a little cash to pitch in the tip bucket for the workers here who ensure you have a great start to your morningOverall, I was satisfied with my stay at this La Quinta The room was comfortable, quiet, and the location felt very safe If you’re seeking a basic but quality place to rest and recharge when traveling through the Lake City region, definitely consider this La Quinta!

This was a lovely hotel at a very convenient location for travelers, being close to I-75 and I-10 The lobby and rooms were spotless, modern, and cheerful The front desk personnel could not have been nicer or more welcoming

My only complaint is partially my fault, but when I called the next day to report that I had inadvertently left 3 bottles of medicine near the coffee pot and that a family member would pass right by that exit and could retrieve the, I was told that no one had seen nor reported them It as my mistake, but I feel that I may not be the first nor last to make one like this I do think there should be some policy established to correct this

Clay Purvis

We have stayed here several times It is where we layover when we are driving to Orlando or Daytona It’s a relatively new hotel

Very nice and modern looking Always clean whenever we stay Staff is always friendly and the breakfast selections are above average Great for a one night stay and plenty of selections for places to eat right nearby It’s right next to I-75 making it very convenient for travel Will be back

I should probably preface this by saying that if you’re rating this according to how you would rate a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton, it’s not a fair comparisonFor a budget motel to spend the night in, this place is about as clean as they come We had 2 small dogs with us who did fine in the hotel

The bathroom was clean and once we got the AC turned on, it was pleasant Since the motel takes pets, be advised that your room will probably smell like it’s had pets in it Having said that, the odor wasn’t intolerableSo I give it 4 stars based on rating discount, economy type of hotels Give it a shot

Stayed at the Super 8 by Wyndham Lake City FL recently on my way to OrlandoThe property was very clean driving into the parking lot They seem to be a busy hotel as there were many cars parked in the parking lot

Lobby ambience was very welcoming and the Front desk personnel were equally welcoming and friendly!! Quick check in followed by the friendly associate at front desk giving me area information and recommendations!! At the end of check-in she surprised me by offering me to choose between Vanilla or Chocolate ice cream!!!! They offer free ice cream at check-inWow!!! She also informed me that they offer free supper Sunday to Thursday for all hotels guests as well as deluxe breakfast in the morning with lot of great hot options I have never stayed at a property that offered free supper, free ice cream and really great hot breakfast I was late for the supper but the free ice cream and the free expanded deluxe hot breakfast next morning completed by excellent stay at this clean, friendly and well run / maintained Super 8 by Wyndham Lake City FLI will surely be back to stay here whenever I pass by here

The hotel rooms are NASTY The rooms are not cleaned properly We went into six different rooms and each room had at least two wolf spiders

There are cobwebs all over the rooms Whoever is cleaning the rooms aren’t doing it properly I have never written a bad review about an establishment but I want to warn you not to book this hotel The top of the doors are open to the outside so gnats and flys were flying around the rooms as well I traveled with my young children and they were grossed out and felt uncomfortable even standing in the room Christine (the front desk lady) was extremely nice and understanding about this issue

A small, private RV Park that is nestled in a beautiful wooded area The owner “Deb” is a super nice person, very accommodating and keeps the park exceptionally clean The price is great, has 50 amp service, some sites are full hookup but there is a dump station and a fresh water fill area

Cleanest hotel ever No hair, soap scum, or trace of anyone being there before us No bugs

Whoever is cleaning deserves a raise and should be commended From parking lot to the room everything was spotless Everything in our room worked and looked new Kitchenette area was perfect This place was well thought out and we enjoyed the little details like charger ports on alarm, soap dispensers in shower, extendable workspace on wheels, etc Very modern Employees were very nice Free breakfast was delicious Pool was great with accommodating hours The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable Price was very fair We were impressed and will stay here again

Bobbie Spamer

Loved this hotel It had some neat little amenities to make me extra comfy for the night You can dim the alarm clock entirely, shades box out the whole window, and the bedside tables and lamps have outlets for a phone charger

The hotel was very clean We used mobile check-in and check-out so I can’t really speak to the level of customer service, however, we were greeted by all staff members we encountered during our stay If you’re planning to use this as an extended stay hotel the room has a mini kitchen complete with fridge, microwave, and dishwasher, plus all the essential dishes in a kitchen

Sooyeon Kim

As Hilton Diamond members, we have stayed at many Hilton affiliated hotels in the US The Lake City Hotel is one of the best Hilton hotels we have stayed in recently It’s not because it’s a new building

Really clean, well maintained, and friendly staff It is the only hotel that was kept clean and the washing machine and dryer did not break down during the long road trip While we were having breakfast, the Old Lady was constantly tidying up the surroundings and asking if we were lacking anything The front desk staff was also very friendly This is a hotel I would like to give more than 5 stars

Fridge not turned on or not working Soap dispensers were empty in shower Pool looked green and dirty

Fitness center had two barbells only I will say room was clean & Beds were comfortable, however the room was definitely dated The breakfast was okay as far as a standard hotel fare I am a gold member with marriot & I expected better The location is not too far off highway and there is a good selection of food places to eat for your convenience I travel often and I am not sure if I will stay here again I asked to speak to manager but was told he was out? Gave my number but I believe I will be ghosted There are better hotel options on the same road If you like quality avail yourself of them, if you don’t have standards use this hotel

Erica Chase

Run down, outdated, no longer own by Marriott (under new ownership and licensed Marriott hotel) Our first room had a musty smell, the shower had mold & mildew in it, and hair in the sink The front desk attendant was very kind and happily moved us into a new room

Ice machine on our floor was broken, freezer in convenience area was also broken, etc… Will never stay here again

Rachel C

Supposed to be pet friendly; however their are ant hills all over their grassy areas I’m part of the Marriott loyalty program and supposed to get late checkout Twice I was denied but they could accommodate if I wanted to book an extra night

Doesn’t make sense other than to get more money out of people I’ve never been denied late checkout before Housekeeping and the front desk clearly don’t communicate because I extended an extra night and housekeeping knocked on my door at checkout to remind me to check out Hallways are super hot and humid where my glasses fogged up the minute I stepped into it When I did leave, no one was at the front desk (this was 7pm or 8pm) I have tried contacting them other ways to get checked out and still have yet to get through

Tanya Profancik

Arrived after 11 pm and staff were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating We parked a boat in the back of the hotel and they asked us to move it in view of the front desk so they could keep an eye on it overnight since it was slightly out of view of their surveillance cameras in the back Hotel was well maintained with a nice front lobby

Rooms were clean and beds were comfy!

Our alternator gave up across the street while on a cross country road trip and so we stayed for two nights and were so glad that we did! Ashley from housekeeping was an absolutely ray of sunshine during an otherwise disaster of a day She made us feel so comfortable and made sure that we were taken care of Her extra care and thought made the world of difference to us and has given such a great impression of this hotel franchise! Thank you Ashley!!

Jonna Hemminger

Hotel is dated but clean, staff is nice The room that Litea cleaned was clean, smelled nice and bed was sooooo comfortable The mattress is Beauty Rest recharge, we woke up refreshed

Spaces are not too close with a picnic table and concrete patio RV pads are gravel Two small ponds for the kids and a resident gator Close to downtown and the 10 freeway Good central location for exploring

Nicole Kirian

We stopped at the park overnight on our way through It’s close to the highway and felt safe We arrived mid day and took the time to explore the park

It has nice laundry facilities ($2 washer/dryer) Our dogs enjoyed the dog park, and they had other grassy areas to walk the dogs too We enjoyed their community room immensely They had a pool table, shuffleboard, foosball table, and great air conditioning! 😁 There were other cool family things to do also like cornhole Bathrooms were clean

This hotel is Much more than it seems It is SPOTLESS Inside and out

Not a single pieces of trash anywhere even in the parking lot The front desk was as professional as many 5 star resorts, even better than a few I’ve had the misfortune to stay at Helpful too Yes, it’s an older property However, it has been updated in ways that matter Good shower Clean Let me stress CLEAN Good lighting outside rooms and parking Comfy bed There is a noisy rd in front but I couldn’t hear anything Just because it’s older doesn’t mean it’s not a good place to stay Good TV and remote, clean sheets, cover, towels As an older single woman, of course safety is #1 and I did feel safe A basic good hotel No there are no bells and whistles So what? Clean trumps and safe winsI don’t leave many reviews but I felt this hotel deserves itYou can tell this owner takes Pride in her/his business and guest I was a late morning walk in, too tired to drive any more Just needed a room for the day/night before driving again The lovely lady at the front desk was kind let me check in and found me their most quite room so I could sleep during the dayI stay in hotels most nights of the year so I have a little experience in judging them And oh yes, the price is right Don’t judge a book by it’s cover

Tiffany

I will say the staff was super friendly and our room was clean, it was a convenient location for passing through, but the other people staying here were so obnoxious and loud They must have lived there, which is weird lol and had a big party at the pool, cussing super loud with my child around and drinking and throwing their trash everywhere Could not enjoy ourselves or the pool for one night on the way to the beach

Jim DeGennaro

One of the friendliest resorts we’ve been to, the staff consists of mostly volunteers who help keep the place running and very clean Lots of rules which work for them but not our cup of tea with limited food available only on weekends and a drive to outside dining We didn’t have cooking facilities in our cabin but did have a coal grill out front but we were told there wasn’t one, so we didn’t bring anything to cook

Our cabin was comfortable with a good bed, bathroom with a shower stall, mini fridge, eating table but no microwave We had one of the two pet allowed cabins that smelled of pets to us because we don’t have any pets, lol They also have park camper trailers available for rental The pool area is nice, you can bring your own drinks and beer in cans only but you have to leave your cooler on the other side of the fence which is still a mystery to us hence the rules Liked it here and that they honor military past & present with many displays around the park Thank you for a pleasant stay!

Nathan Butler

Our first time at a naturist/nudist resort Loved the venue DOUBLE loved the people

Some friends wanted to have their wedding ceremony there, and we were a little out of our comfort zone, but within minutes we were comfortable and getting into the poolCould not have asked for a better place to dip our toes into a very wonderful lifestyle We both said when we get out on road with RV/bus that we will come park there for a WHILEThanks so much to everyone for being so welcoming and wonderful to a bunch of outsiders invading!

Great place to stay in Lake City, comfortable climate and right off I-10 and I-75!! Great place to stay on your way to your destination Lake City is fantastic to find everything you need and want before you go further South and prices begin to rise Or as many have found, it’s awesome to stay at Casey Jones for long term as well

Really nice people and happy to have you ask questions to find anything that you may need Be nice, friendly and that is how you will find it If you want to raise a ruckus, go on down the road But if you want a nice, safe,well kept campground, look no further

Barbara M

We would actually give Casey Jones Campground 4 1/2 stars if it was possible If they had at least crushed stone at their sites (ours was a combination of grass and dirt), they would deserve five stars The warm and genuine welcome/greeting was very appreciated as was the personal escort to our site

We did not hear or notice any traffic noise from I-75, or any noise from other campground residents This campground is perfect for an overnight rest stop, making one feel ready to go the next morning We have driven by many times This trip the timing worked out to stayWe very much recommend Casey Jones Campground

Linda Mucci

Great overnight stay Right off I 75 Campground is clean, well maintained, friendly

Laundry is very cleanSite was grass and slightly undeveloped but easily leveledFHU, wifi and cableWill definitely use to stay going home and as a regular stopThank you
