I stay at La Quinta's because they don't charge extra for pets. My dog is my family. The La Quinta on Fowler is close to everything. There is a Petsmart on Bruce B. Downs, in New Tampa, with a pet hotel to keep your furry friend while away from your hotel room.

Room was spacious and clean. Beds great. Breakfast was just ok. Pool was great. Close to everything. School across the street. Busch gardens down the block. Hotel was quiet. Inside halls. I would stay again for sure.

When going to Busch Gardens we always stay here...you can walk to the park...leave the park before the fireworks so you can see them from their pool, wonderful...can't wait for our return visit to the park and this hotel...we always have a good time...be very careful of other properties near the park...yuk

We always get a King Suite or deluxe room with frog and micro Almost always have good service at La Quinta and the price is very reasonable. I like having the breakfast option for the family and I prefer to make my own in the room as I am on a restricted diet.

The pool area was very nice too, surrounded by a very nice garden. The hotel was quiet inside and outside, wich for us was very relaxing and peaceful. The service was... More

We have stayed at this LaQuinta several times over the past 5 or so years (3 times in the past 12 months) and it has always been a very pleasant stay. The staff is friendly, polite and helpful. This time, however, there had been a water problem and industrial fans located in the hall one room down from ours were... More

Have stayed here three different occasions while visiting USF. Alway had issues. Weather it was the air conditioner, not having the room cleaned upon returning late afternoon, not cleaning the coffee pot when it was finally cleaned or the TV not working. Staff was not the friendliest. 👎🏻

This property had a 4.5 rating on Trip Advisor so we stayed there. What a mistake! It is a cheaply built, rundown hotel. The walls are paper thin. We were bothered by barking of 3 different dogs (it is a pet friendly hotel), shrieking children, flushing toilets and folks yelling in the hallways. Although it appears that they are trying...

Easy to access with nice amenities. There is secluded outside swimming pool with ample lounge seating, a good sized exercise room, and the breakfast area is large enough to accommodate a full house of guests. the rooms are generous size & clean. The staff are friendly and efficient.
