Have no idea where they other 5 star reviews are coming from. I have never left a bad review prior to this, but I have stayed at 50+ hotel rooms and have never been in such a dirty room. I could understand if I was paying $75 or less a night but I paid double the first night. I don't... More

This hotel was more than what we expected. Our king size bed was very comfortable and the room as well as the bathroom was extremely clean. The staff was so nice and helped give us information to get around town. It was extremely quiet even with guest who were staying during the Outback Bowl.

Great hospitality from Brandi at the front desk! My stay at La Quinta has been awesome. Rooms are very clean and roomy with a friendly staff, I highly suggest this property. Make sure to take advantage of the great breakfast every morning before you start your day!

DO NOT STAY HERE....roaches, fleas, mold and hotel staff with attitudes, pay the extra money and stay somewhere else!! The manger Patel is a joke and rude, only bring your pet if you plan on staying in your room since you're not able to leave them alone which was never advised at check-in!!!

I was very happy with the staff and the inside of the hotel, however the outside of the hotel and location were a bit to be desired. There is not much scenery and it is located on the corner of a very busy road.

This particular hotel was the BEST BY FAR of all of the locations we have had the opportunity to visit or stay, exceptionally clean and updated accommodations the last 2 locations we have stayed are in desperate need of updating and a thorough deep cleaning as well as painting, hardware replaced in bathrooms. The Tampa location is awesome!!

Everyone at the front desk and the cleaning staff was very nice and accommodating. The owner, Mr Patel, visited everyone every day at breakfast to say hello and to ask if everything was ok. He also remembers everyone by name. It was a pleasure to stay at this LQ. We will be back.

We should have known from the second that we checked in. The place looked grungy and rundown. We hurriedly went to our room, went to dinner for a couple of hours, came back to our room, and discovered our worst fears… disgusting carpets, drapes, hair in the bathroom, etc. It was clear that the conditions were not limited to our...
