On arrival our room the smell was a musty, definitely not fresh odor. The room was not as clean as I would have wanted a hotel room to be. The beds were made up very sloppy. We stayed because we wanted to be close the Busch Gardens and our plans were to stay only 2 nights. I am very glad... More

I thought the hotel room and its staff were nice. The hotel, like busch gardens, is located in a scrappy area. You could walk to busch gardens its across the street, but about a mile walk because the entrance is on the other side. I would not suggest walking back from the park at night, alone at least. But at... More

The room was clean. There wasn't any housekeeping to change towels or make beds. Pool towels basket was empty. We were lucky to ran in one of the housekeeping girls. Breakfast was satisfactory. Pool area was also nice. Best part is that is only half a mile from the entrance of Busch gardens.

I travel all over the America and this was one of the must pleasent vist I have experienced with LaQuinta. The staff was very courteous and went out of their way to make you feel at home. I will place this location on my favorite list when returning to this area.

This hottel is clean, decorated nice, and the service is great. A big draw for me for LaQuinta is how they welcome pets. I always stay in the back of the hotel since there is plenty of room for them to do their business and walk them. Busch Agdens is across the street and there are plenty of nice restaurants... More

Literally right across the street from Busch Gardens, lots of restaurants in the area. But this place was pretty disgusting. We got a smoking room, went to change it and was told they did not have any non smoking rooms available. The smoking room was horrible, the scent, the sheets, the carpet. Everything just looked really dirty. Looked like there... More

After staying at a wonderful La Quinta in Jacksonville, the one in Tampa was disgusting. We walked on the carpet in our room with our bare feet and after a few minutes our soles of our feet were black. There was dried up dog poop under the sink area. The hostess in the breakfast room dropped trash cans whenever she... More
