The room stunk when we walked in. We had reserved 3 rooms and 2 of them smelled bad! It seemed that 2 of them had not been rented in a few days. The carpet was gross and we all woke up with allergies. The AC didn't work very well. It was just gross. The neighborhood isn't great. I went to... More

I really regret not having read some of the reviews for this hotel before I booked my stay. The hotel staff are very friendly but there are many people loitering outside. The loiterers were trying to sell us jewelry and there seemed to be drug realted activity going on outside. Me and my family felt really uncomfortable. They watched us... More

I used to work for Laquinta and I booked this hotel knowing what the standards should be, but I was wrong. I booked two rooms about 2 months ago and we were quoted a a price of $39.90 with our AAA discount but the confirmation email we received stated $42.00. I called reservations to see why our discount hadn't been... More

Lots of questionable vehicle traffic throught the parking lot all... More

It's difficult to say what was the best part about staying at this La Quinta. It could have easily been the people selling drugs in the parking lot, the hos cruising the sidewalks in front of the building, the teenage kids running around all night pounding on everyone's doors, barking dogs in our neighbor's room, or the roofers on the...

I stayed at this La Quinta location upon arriving into Tampa, upon moving to the Tampa area. After driving all day we chose this location. The double room we were given was just your average room. Our room was on the 2nd level. Rooms are accessed from the outside . Vending machines are located in the breezeway, the lighting outside... More

Booked this one after reading positive reviews here. The hotel was good and the room was comfortable with good beds and clean room. The bathroom was nice and clean too. Since it is very close to Busch Gardens we were able to reach there early in the morning to catch good rides without much lines. The price was right and... More

We were looking for somewhere to stay near Busch Gardens as we would be attending both during the day and going to Howl O Scream at night. We weren't expecting a resort nor was this one. While, as mentioned in other reviews, the rooms were not inside-entry - our room faced the swimming pool and was neither on a parking... More
