The Shadier Side of the La Quinta in Tamarac


By: Sharon Aron Baron

Summer vacation time is just around the corner.  Why not pack up the family and drive over to the La Quinta Inn and Suites in Tamarac, Florida where breakfast isn’t the only thing that’s included in your stay.

Guests that have stayed at the 3800 West Commercial Blvd location, have shared their reviews on Trip Advisor, and they don’t paint a pretty picture of what is going on there.  Sightings of cockroaches, spiders and ants were written about, as well as unsavory activities going on in the premises.  And the rooms aren’t a bargain either with some people being charged upwards $100 a night.

This reviewer stayed at the La Quinta just one week ago. Notice that she still ate breakfast after discovering roaches running all over the seats and walls of the breakfast room.


Last month, police dogs sniffed this one guest like he was a criminal.  No worries, just another day in paradise.


Your hotel must be pretty impressive if the guest’s favorite employee was the maintenance guy.


They charge extra for those ants you know.


This family went somewhere else when they noticed funny stuff going on.


Drive, drive, drive away.  Or at least before your car is stolen….



Roaches, spiders, hookers and pot.  However, on a good note, he did write that the beds were comfortable.

    The LaQuinta in Coral Springs on University Drive is the same. Filthy and skeevy. Yuck. Disgusting. Would not let my dog sleep there. LaQuinta should consider tightening up their act.

    I will not expand, but shady implies the motel and staff themselves are engaged in illicit conduct. Seedy is the word you were going for.

    But I’ve never encountered such an ambitious little site dedicated to a small town. Kudos to the woman apparently running the entire operation, and her apparent dedication.
