Read the reviews, so had high expectations. A bit disappointed upon arrival. Our room had not been properly cleaned, needed to go back to front desk and ask to be moved. We were accommodated properly, but now we were already tired and bothered, so the nitpicking started. Musty smell in the lobby, breakfast items very limited, and please... get some... More

For a two star hotel they have many ammenities. Pleasantly surprised. I thought we'd be on our own but we weren't. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast choices were good. We will consider it for a future stay.

We needed a room at the last minute and got their king room with a couch. The room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The hotel has a heated pool and small fitness room. It's close to USF and several restaurants and stores.

Upon our first impression, we were thrilled. There appeared to be recent updates, but the longer we were there, the more we became dissatisfied. The hallway smelled musty and the elevator like body odor. The bed was comfortable and our room was clean but the air broke and the outlets in the bathroom did not work. The next day housekeeping...

They allow dogs here, and our room was right next to a room occupied by a dog. The walls and thin and every time there was noise in the hall he would bark. The room was clean and close to the University where we had a doctor's visit. The visit was for a doctor's appt, not business or pleasure.

This is the nicest LaQuinta in Tampa. I try to stay at this location whenever I come to town. Keep these standards up and you'll not lose a customer! The rooms are clean and comfortable. I was there at a very busy time and everything moved along well, check-in, housekeeping and check-out.

Hotel was as advertised; services were good and location Re: Moffiitt was perfect. My mattress however (in room 118) needs replacement. Based on this one issue I rated the sleep quality as 'poor'. It should be noted however, that my spouse said the mattress was average for a hotel.

Mom and I spend 3 days in Tampa for her cancer trial, it is easier for us to spend the night and drive less. I have stayed at a lot of local hotels close to the cancer center, I will always stay at this La Quinta from now on.

This was our first stay at this particular LAQuinta. It was very close to our purpose for this visit at Moffitt Cancer Center. We were a little nervous about going to a new hotel but were both very pleased with the entire hotel experience. We made our reservations over the internet so we were not totally sure what we would... More

Everything seemed ok until it was time to go to sleep. As I laid down it felt like little itching and biting all over. I actually couldn't even sleep in the bed and slept on the reclining chair in the room. I had to take all of my clothes and wash them with hopes nothing followed me home! I wish... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. I apologize you felt there may have been an issue with your room. We do have a pest company that checks our rooms on a monthly basis. We will have them come again this month to recheck our rooms. If there is anything more we may help... More
