My wife son and I stayed here for six nights and were very happy with our stay. The management and staff were very friendly. Room was very clean. Breakfast was more than needed. We would most definitely stay here again.

First off, this hotel is in the straight up ghetto! Yes, there are alot of restaurants, etc nearby, but it's definitely in a sketchy part of town. We were visiting Busch Gardens, and the drive to/from made me uneasy! The staff is excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was average (if you like rubber eggs and fake sausage), but its... More

Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff great, rooms large and well appointed. Breakfast great with homemade waffles, continental style but with eggs and sausage as well. Close to Hard Rock Casino(8 mi away). Large common area and our room had a microwave and little refrigerator. Restaurants close bye and easy access.

I don't know if it was the quiet room and location, the good, light-blocked drapes or the comfortable bed with nice pillows, but I had the best rest here that I can ever remember having a hotel room. Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel, but here's where this place stood out. It was crowded, so my wife and... More

Spent the night there after finding this gem on Price Line. We had a great time here and although everything wasn't perfect we slept like logs. Our room could have used a little more elbow grease as far as the cleaning, but it wasn't anything that would scare you. The hair dryer died after about 3 min of working, but... More

We were here for almost 2 months. We enjoyed our stay and all the staff. We were close to a lot of stores...restaurants and gas stations. I am a runner and less than 5 miles from this La Quinta was a beautiful running park. Our room was always clean and the housekeepers were amazing. I have a few people that... More

I've stayed here over 3 times for business. Always friendly staff and owner. Its also in a great spot near a busy road with lots of choices to eat. Airport is not that far. Football stadium is right down the road. It would be nice if they added weights to the fitness center and hand/body lotion to the rooms. Next... More

Was concerned driving to the hotel with the area. Hotel was well lit and didn't have any issues. Hallways and elevator can use renovation. Otherwise the hotel was fine able to be seen from a while away and close to a Zaxbys.

This hotel is in a terrible area and the staff doesn't ensure the people from around that area stay out of the hotel. There also seems to be an issue with making sure reserved rooms are cleaned prior to the check in time of 4 p.m.

Thank you very much for your review. I apologize that housekeeping appears to have been behind schedule on the date of your check in.
