We got this hotel because it was cheap & close to the Moffitt cancer center which is where we needed to be for the week. The first night we were here was good. There's a lot of restaurants nearby, the rooms are roomy & clean. We went to the pool outside which was quiet, & enjoyable. The next day we... More

I have stayed here several times. I stay here because the rates are so low when you compare them to the other motels in the area. The motel is across the street (literally, you can see one of the roller coasters) from Busch Gardens. Understandably, the motel has also been used frequently with such a large venue so close. That's... More

Our three basic necessities for lodging are cleanliness, cost, and local area safety. The adjacent property is a Tampa Police Station. In those three things the La Quinta Inn Tampa Near Busch Gardens was just fine. Other than the friendly helpful staff it would be a stretch to say there was anything exemplary about the place. The rooms absolutely need... More

This hotel was beyond under-whelming. From beginning to end, this hotel was a nightmare. We were the only people who were checking in when we arrived and it took the girl at the front desk (clearly was new) took about 20 minutes to figure out the computer and get us our keys. We were told to park in the back... More

Area where "motel" is located is kind of scary. Premises is completely gated with chain link. Rooms smell either like smoke or wet dog. YUCK. Staff is friendly and room seems to be clean. Really tired hotel. Entrance door to hotel room has a half inch gap at bottom of door and you can hear everything outside. Also a lot... More

We were here one night for the Gasparilla races. We arrived about 8:00pm, by 5:00am we were out the door. And that was a rather long 9 hours. We were greeted by the smell of mold and mildew. Then we discovered the extra tenant in our room...a dead roach in the bathroom. And to really make us feel cozy, we... More

Upon arrival we of course go into the lobby...backed up out the door! One girl working. Okay...we had reservations, I am a La Quinta Inn member, but the line and wait was unacceptable. Finally get our room, it is way out around the back on the building and was told we could park there. She should have added if we... More
