If you simply drove by this hotel in its unprepossessing surroundings, you wouldn't guess what a pleasant, restful place it is to stay at. I stayed here once for one night in July 2013 and came back on my second visit to Tampa for two nights in January 2015. On both occasions the room was large, quiet, clean and nicely... More

The staff and General Manager, Mr. Patel were wonderful. We felt like we family in their home. Wonderful breakfast. Everything was just perfect. It is hard to be away from home at Christmas but staying at LQ Central was like being at home. Clean, fresh, and comfortable room, bed and bathroom. Attentive staff.

The woman checking us in was great. Very friendly and courteous. Unfortunately the room not up to standards. There was a carpet patch and what appeared to be burn holes in the carpet. Window Heating/AC - Really? Broken cover and what appeared to be a mold of some type.

Brandy on the front desk was extremely helpful in changing our queen double room to a king suite, which would provide more room for myself, daughter and three grandsons for our one night stay. We booked this hotel to be close to Lowry Park Zoo as we took the grandsons to Winter Wonderland. When we got into the room and... More

every thing about this hotel was class a except the dirty carpet in the room that I was given. I have stayed at this hotel several time. I have never stayed in a room at this hotel with the carpet that dirty. the desk clerk was friendly and wanted to help with any thing that I might need.

I live locally and hardly get the opportunity to stay in hotels in the area. My friends and I had our annual girls weekend and wanted a hotel that was central to everything in the area. La Quinta Inn was the best choice. The rooms were clean, spacious, and offered just what we needed to accommodate our stay. Carlos, the... More

The trip was great and the staff at the hotel was very nice. The staff was wonderful and everything was clean and comfortable. I have a habit of checking the bedding and everything was very clean, from the towels to sheets and the covers for the bed. I really recommend this hotel.

I travel a lot on business. In my travels I have certain things I like, and one of them are properties that are service oriented. A nice room is not that great if the service is horrible. I stayed at this property because it was close to the office I was visiting. As I pulled in I was not impressed.... More

Here is an excellent example of how customer service makes a difference. I had redeemed a free night via telephone before my trip, but it did not appear in the hotel's print-out when I checked in. For whatever reason this took awhile for the front desk to resolve with LQ's reservation headquarters. While the manager straightened it out over the... More
