We had a good eight day stay at La Quinta, Tampa-Busch Gardens. Our room was ground floor, which I asked for, as I don't walk well. We felt safe, the room was clean, the fridge and microwave was very useful. The beds were only double sized as advertised, but were very comfortable, perhaps new. The morning breakfast had waffles, eggs,... More

I reserved two rooms 229 and 230. In Rm 230, the odor of the room was humid and musty, when I took my shoes off I realized the entire carpet was wet. It appeared they cleaned the rugs before my stay. In Rm 229, it had a wretched odor of cat urine. I was extremely dissatisfied that both rooms had... More

We have stayed at many LaQuinta hotels in many states. Would never stay here again. Had to stay overnight in Tampa for a visit to the Moffitt Cancer Ctr, which was VERY CONVENIENT to the hospital. The heating/cooling system was so loud, kept us awake a lot at night. You can hear everything going on outside, i.e. traffic, vehicles coming... More

We stayed overnight on a leisure trip around Florida. This is an awful hotel for a first stay... smelly, generally unclean - do not look inside the elevator - with guests that wander around smoking illegal stuff. Very little choice for breakfast, offering mostly ready made dishes and bad filter coffee. Avoid at all costs.

Pleasant one night stay. Quiet room in the rear building. Internet is quite good for a motel. Room has only one desk area which is not convenient when both occupants have computers. Breakfast could be better. Only one driveway to access this motel, so it can become a bit congested.

My family and I were here just to drop off our daughter for college and this was a good location. However, the room has had little or no maintenance and the double beds for full size instead of queen size which is NOT outlined in the online description. There is no way 4 adults would be able to comfortably sleep... More

The room was okay. You can clearly see it was an old motel remodeled. The beds were okay, the service was okay, bring flip flops I wouldn't walk around barefoot. (I wouldn't walk around barefoot at the White House or the Ritz Carlton either) Expect for it to be okay, and you won't be disappointed. You can see the rides... More

From the minute we walked in the door it seemed we were bothering the staff. Our rooms (2) were not ready, but it was 2:00 PM and check in was 3:00. They text me at 2:54 to let us know one room was ready. We checked in to that room; however, it took almost 25 minutes to get checked in.... More
