My husband and I stayed while visiting with my family in Tampa. We were not impressed with the hotel. For the cost, I would have expected a nicer room. The one we had was somewhat musty and old. The last night we were there we came back in around 10:00 and my husband noticed that the towels had been removed... More

I wish it was a little quieter, but at least we finally got some sleep. I wouldn't be rushing to stay here again, that's for sure. It sure would be nice if they cleaned the bathroom before letting people stay there as well.

I was the first person to book a room in this hotel when it was built. I have come back numerous times and the 5 star rating is well deserve. The staff, in particular, the management, go out of their way to serve their guests. Rooms are excellent, a extensive free breakfast is provided, including fresh hot waffles and beverages... More

I would not normally stay at a La Quinta due to an unpleasant experience in one in Detroit. However, my daughter and friends were travelling on spring break last week (March) and the price was not only reasonable but the Tripadvisor reviews were EXCELLENT. The communication regarding payment was not accurate upon arrival. The area was terrible and more research... More

I traveled to Tampa on March 16th for a 3 night stay on business. My wife traveled with me. We had a budget to stay within and this La Quinta was the only one in the area we needed that didn't break our budget threshold. As we entered the lobby, which was very nicely decorated, we were met by Mr.... More

The staff at the hotel was beyond nice. The manager was very friendly and you could tell he took pride in the hotel. By far one of the best hotel stays we have had. We have pets and traveling with them is not always easy. The check in staff gave us a ground room next to an exit. We were... More

I love the staff at this hotel. The location is perfect. A 30 minute drive to Clear-water. I would bring my family to this hotel. The only negative would be there is no pool or entertainment for children.

we called this hotel for a reservation and the front desk lady quoted me 200 a night and since it was the only hotel available we took it. The hotel is nasty dirty, and the room they put us in stunk like a DOG KENNEL! I love dogs but this room was beyond nasty. The front desk lady mysteriously had... More

I have stayed here before, mainly for convenience where i'm working. Some places to eat but better going a couple of miles down the road on Mabry Ave. Room was clean and comfortable and clean. Breakfast was just ok, nothing special. Ex room and pool available. Price is a bit high, but there is no competition, so thats expected. Front... More

Nice hotel, nice staff. Clean, spacious room. I only have an issue with the wi-fi connection that I have at every La Quinta that I stay in for some reason. The signal was intermittent and as usual I had to deal with the tech guys from their internet provider. Other than that, I'm a La Quinta fan.
