This is a great hotel. It is quiet, even though it is on a main street. It is just across the street from USF, and less than a half mile from MOSI. A short drive to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Very easy access from the airport and freeways. Hotel has 4 floors, our room was very comfy, the staff... More

A very nice and quiet hotel near USF and Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Staff were excellent and the rooms immaculate. Highly recommend this hotel. Pool and hot tub areas were very clean and well kept. The free breakfast was the traditional fare - the eggo waffle maker and various cold cereals and breads. Clean and nice.

This hotel was clean, room was decorated nicely, and the front desk staff person Brandi was very nice, courteous and helpful. The bed was the only drawback, when you looked at it you could see how it sagged in the middle, and sure enough, it needs to be replaced!

Across the street from USF within a mile of Busch Gardens. Nice large room, comfy beds & pillows. Breakfast was good but ran out of everything by 8:45am. Staff cordial & efficient. We would stay again

Great hotel for the price. Clean and sharp rooms. It's very close to Bush Gardens and across the street from University of South Florida. Great staff, very friendly and professional. The only negatives it's there's only fast food and those chain restaurants in the area.

We stayed at this La Quinta in March 16th. Our room was comfortable, spacious, clean and quiet. The beds were so cozy that I didn't want to get up in the morning! How often does that happen? The staff is very helpful and friendly. We will definitely chose this hotel again.
