Basic hotel at a cheap price. If you are looking for a low cost place to stay near Busch Gardens with a few amenities, this likely fills the bill. The quality of the place is average - at best. The paper-thin walls does little to silence the outside noises - be it the police and public safety vehicles racing by... More

From reading the reviews prior to staying at La Quinta Inn Busch Gardens I expected a reasonably clean hotel, for a decent price, in a good location. It fit the bill in some ways, but there were some problems. First... The Good - * Front Desk staff - very courteous and helpful. Let me use their computers to print out... More

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at this hotel during New Years holidays.. We are Tennessee football fans and were in town both times to attend the Outback Bowl..We stayed four nights this year and were very impressed with the staff from front desk to maids..It is located close enough to Busch Gardens that we...

I think my family has fallen in love with the La Quinta chain. The prices are outstanding (with lots of discounts available), the hotel is clean, the employees are curteous, and the continental breakfast can't be beat. This La Quinta is showing its wear but it is very clean. The waterfall by the pool is a nice, albiet slightly tacky,... More

Well, like always I relied heavily on tripadvisor.com to help me choose a cheap, safe, clean hotel for a one night stay after going to Busch Gardens. Unfortunately, it didn't quite live up to the prior reviews I had been reading on here. I am willing to chalk it up to a bad room, because most of what I saw... More

We stayed overnight at the La Quinta Inn, and found it an ideal base. Room was clean and couldn't fault it for an overnight stay. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Drive or walk to Busch Gardens. Friendly staff, and lovely pool. Closest motel to Busch Gardens we noticed while we were there.

$88 for bed/breakfast in a usual motel style room - more than you would expect to pay in Orlando but maybe all Tampa hotels are more expensive. Make sure you ask for a room at the end of a corridor so you don't get too disturbed by loud passers by outside. Room was comfortable enough (sink was in the bedroom... More

I chose this hotel because of it's proximity to Busch Gardens. You can see the park from the lobby but you can't walk to it because the entrance to the park is on the other side of the park. The rooms are a little worn and out dated but they are relatively clean and very spacious. We enjoyed the king... More

The savings in the rate are NOT worth the aggravation and traumatizing experience you will have here. If you want to stay at a budget hotel, stay at the LQ on Fowler Ave...much nicer environment. As we took the elevator up to our room, we noticed elevator light panels were on the floor, dirty disgusting floor of elevators. The real... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of our room and it was clean and tidy. Just one maintenance issue - the telephone had been pulled from the wall and not repaired - but it didn't spoil our stay though. Had 2 nights there and found the staff were very professional and helpful to all guests. One thing... More
