This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Only one worse was Motel 6 in Walterboro. That hotel, I left after a short nap. This hotel is old, like an old motel. Very convenient to Busch Gardens, but I'm sure the animals have better accommodations. My room smelled like smoke and not from just an overnight stay, like... More

The La Quinta Tampa - Busch Gardens was clean and comfortable. Amenities are at a minimum. Standard room needs microwave and at least an optional fridge. Florida swimming pools should be heated. Walls are very thin so if you have a noisy neighbor you'll be out of luck. Good access to Busch Gardens, though requires either 25 minute walk or... More

Stay here if you want a great location near Busch Gardens (20 minute walk from front door to the actual entrance gates), not fancy or luxurious, but satisfactory for the category that it is in---a bit older, but all clean, comfortable, functional. No interior corridors; access is by door to the outside. Does have elevator. Continental breakfast was adequate--includes bagels... More

Awesome staff! Nice, quick, and professional.. The rooms are spotless and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good and healthy but lacks a bit more variety... i stay quite often, haven't had an incident yet.... :)

If you plan on going to Busch Gardens, this is a good hotel for you. Nothing fancy, but is in a great location right across the street from the park. We walked to Busch Gardens and saved paying for parking. The breakfast was average. Nothing exciting, but enough to start your day. Our room was just average too. Clean, but... More

LaQuinta is an excellent chain. The Busch Garden facility rooms need updating. This particular time, the room had a bad odor, and the carpets were stained badly. When I drive across country, I always find one conveniently near. Always the best value, just disappointed in my last stay. I will continue to use them.

Booked this hotel for 1 night, 2 rooms to take my daughter's family to Busch Gardens. We either stay at Hampton Inns or La Quinta when travelling so we expect a certain level of quality and this was well below even a two star. I book hotels all over North America and Europe for myself & my husband so I... More

Clean , comfortable, friendly, with a great location to Yeungling brewery and Busch gardens. Much improved from last visit a year ago. La Quinta offers one of the best points reward systems of all out there. I would most likely go there again & again.

I stayed at this la quinta at the end of January. No real issue w the room. It was whatever. Standard crap 2 star. The problem was I was charged w/out my consent for "damages". When I asked what the damages were, was informed for a pet accident. While true, I cleaned up after my pet and he was sick.... More

We have stayed in La Quinta's before so we were expecting a certain level of quality -- this wasn't it. For the price, it was a good value, but wasn't at all what we expected. It's a three storey motel. The room doors face open air corridors. We didn't have a problem, but we didn't see much in the way... More
