This hotel is amazing. The service I received was unparallelled. I was travelling for a family member's surgery at TGH. I am not familiar with the area and just guessed. I also have dog's and they are a member of my family as well. La Quinta has the best pet policy on the planet! Without them my trip would not... More

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times in the past couple of years, and this past stay was one I will never forget. I left a week later minus a laptop bc it was stolen out of my room while I was out visiting family the day before I left to come back home to CT. Long story short... More

I'm a single mom traveling with 2 kids and this hotel is the first I've actually been apprehensive to stay at, but I purchased through travelocity so no cancelations for me. The room was clean, but in desperate need of a paint job. It's literally right across the street from Busch Garden, so that's a positive. We had 4 different... More

We stayed here because it was close to the park. We did not want to have to drive to the park to save on parking fees. We were surprised at the fact that the wall surrounding the park is about a mile long so we had a really long walk along a very busy road to the entrance. Then you... More

This is the place from where you can start your day in Bush Gardens. I have been here several times before. Maybe I was just lucky enough, but I always get a clean room and there were no problems at all. Breakfast is poor, if you want to have something better, try restaurants in close neighborhood or directly in Bush... More

I stay in a lot of la Quinta's since I travel with dogs. This one is the dirtiest, scariest one ever! Air conditioners leaked, rooms stunk. "Breakfast"? Um, a few boiled eggs, and horribly burnt coffee, stale toast--all that was available, and most of it was gone well before 9 AM the time it was supposed to end. No creamers... More

I've enjoyed staying at La Quinta hotels across the country and expected a similar experience here. Perhaps the $55 per night for a suite should have tipped me off. We walked into the room and the sour smell of the stained carpet was the first turn-off. The furniture was filthy and we wouldn't have dared to sit in it. Asked... More

This hotel is just about the cheapest option that exists...in America. It is literally right next to Busch gardens. If you happen to be going up just to enjoy the park and don't want to pay extra for parking, then this hotel is the perfect spot. Its like a lodge, its a place to put your head down after a... More
