Great people. Very large rooms and a nice pool. It is very close to Bush Gardens and University of South Florida. Breakfast is your standard waffeles, bagels, toast a yogurt. It is a pretty good drive to beaches, unique restaurants and nightlife.

Upon check in there were multiple fast food flyers under my door and again during my stay. Why do you let outside people on the floors? On Saturday night I arrived back to the hotel at 9pm and there was a nasty wet towel in the elevator. On Sunday morning at 9am the nasty wet towel was STILL THERE! Where... More

Received a Moffitt discount for my wife's surgery. Great deal and very good service. Had to bring my dog on this trip. LQ had no problem with her being in the room and she was able to be with the pack.

This was good hotel. I was not impressed with the rooms. The staff was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. Overall was not bad but rooms need updating and bathrooms in room need fans. Thank you to the staff.

I WAS THERE TO GO FOR MEDICAL CARE. I also used your hotels in New York in May and was happy with my stay. But it takes to long to get a free night! I hope that is enough to get out of the page. Thank you

I stayed many times at this hotel. The last time, 3 days ago, the service, the breakfast offered, and overall for the price paid, there're best chances to save you money in another hotel in the area. They have to improve all. A/C units on rooms are terribly noisy that every time it starts will wake you up. Breakfast is... More

After much research, went with best available rate close to University as reviews for all hotels in the immediate area were mostly the same. Greeted with fast efficient check in even as a late arrival(11pm). Forgot to get a sleeping bag for my teens orientation so was going back out to Target (stay away from the Walmart here, yeah I...

Super clean. Spacious Room. Lots of towels. Wish there was a shower cap. Nice on the go type breakfast. Worth every penny. Needs more than one computer in the lobby though!!!! Would have like some bacon or sausage in the morning, but that's just me. Other than that, I definitely would come back to this location!

The facilities need some deep cleani g/updating. My first impression was a nasty elevator, but our room was fine. Great Simmons mattress, probably one of the best hotel beds we've slept in. Great price compared to others.

We booked a one night stay as part of our vacation to Florida. I was impressed with how courteous all the staff was. They texted me to alert me when the room was ready. Once in the room, the front desk called to make sure we were comfy. The room itself was very satisfactory for the price. Breakfast was a... More
