Stayed at this hotel two nights during a trip to Busch Gardens. Don't think there's a hotel closer to the park than this one! It seems too far to walk though. There is no shuttle from the hotel. The rooms are basic, pretty clean. The pool area is great. Nice spacious sunning area and large pool. Add in free wifi... More

I stayed here for one night while in Tampa for howl o scream. I booked based on reviews and location to the park. At first the girl at the deal couldn't find my reservation in the system, not a big deal I booked 3rd party and at least had a confirmation number. Although location is FANTASTIC, the hotel itself is... More

My wife and I spent one night here just three nights ago on Tuesday, March 24th. I got us this room through Hotwire for an excellent price. Though the hotel staff was friendly and helpful, we won't be returning here for the following two reasons: 1. When we arrived, the hotel only had two smoking rooms left. Neither one of... More

Overall the place was surprisingly quiet, which is what was needed for a good night sleep. The facility had the look/feel of an older motel, which was disappointing considering that the rates were not cheap. This could have been due to the fact it was heading towards spring, which is likely a time of high occupancy. The front desk staff... More

This hotel is not like a regular La Quinta or LQ has lowered their standards. The hotel room is not that clean. The front door needs a new coat of paint. The comforter for one of the beds had a large stain. If you call the front desk they can not hear you so you have to walk there. We... More

Overall,my stay was not bad it was very quiet and relaxing and I was just a mile from the theme park. The only trouble I encountered was with the microwave oven. I reported this to two different managers one in the day and one at night. the manager at night did resolve it by giving me extra points.

On arrival our rooms were ready and very clean. Nice comfortable beds (pillows are a little uncomfortable) and we had plenty of nice towels and wash clothes. Our room was on the 3Rd floor so it was fairly quiet. We had access to two elevators. The outdoor pool was clean and our children really enjoyed it. The free breakfast was... More

The towels were dirty and I saw roaches on the wall. The room had a strong smell of perfume. They were trying to cover up the bad smell in the room. The Front desk seemed not to care when I told them about my problem. I wish they cleaned the room before I was there.

The front desk and mgmt are friendly but the hotel needs a little help. The website said it was new on lq.com but it is not. The hallway and rooms smell musty and like the rooms have been smoked in. Our fridge smells sour. Our ac unit works but looks like it is on its last leg. The hotel hss... More

We stay here several times a year, when we visit Busch Gardens. Very convenient location to park and shopping areas/restaurants. Tried to book connecting rooms via phone several days ahead but was told we could not do so , as availability may change. Booked a king suite instead. Upon arrival, told desk staff about attempt. She used both computers to... More
