Stayed one night as visiting Busch Gardens and it's within 2 minute drive. All rooms are renovated and surprisingly modern and comfortable for the low price we payed.. Free continental breakfast but we did not get up on time for it. Would definitely recommend.

Although this hotel has had some nice renovations and the rooms are updated, the poor service and incompetent staff make for an unpleasant stay. There was a hotel wide issue in the middle of the night where all guests had to vacate the hotel. During this time no one communicated to guests and the hotel just acted as though it... More

I read tripadvisor reviews and booked this hotel when we visited Busch Gardens last week. When I first walked into the front desk, there was nobody! The lady who showed up a few minutes later wasn't friendly at all. (But, she wasn't rode or anything.) The room was ok... but, the beds are kind of old and not comfortable. They... More

There was hair in the bathtub, and a hook on the ground I conveniently stepped on and took pictures of because I couldn't believe it happened. Front desk didn't seem to concerned and didn't offer anything to compensate for something so irresponsible. My next day was spent limping as my foot was sore, luckily it didn't swell or hurt longer... More

I was greeted kindly and the property including the room were very clean. Breakfast was great. The only problem that the hotel should address is replacing some of the beds. In my double one bed was a nice pillow top mattress while the other bed had started to sink and every time you moved it squeaked. The employee's were very... More

This hotel was very nice from the initial exterior design to the rooms to the landscaping and pool area. Nice people at the front desk and the rooms were very clean and well decorated. I joined the LaQuinta club for future stays at this hotel.

We spent 2 nights here while visiting our son, who goes to grad school at USF. The room was clean, pleasant, quiet, and the front desk staff friendly and helpful. Location across from the university and near our son’s apartment was good. Breakfast very basic, but I’m not much of a morning eater. There were some homeless people who set... More

Stayed at this hotel by myself to meet up with family at Busch Gardens the following day. The hotel itself was clean and well kept and featured the usual LaQuinta amenities. The cost was slightly higher than I usually pay for a LaQuinta. I thought, due to price, this was a newer or upgraded hotel, and it is not. For... More
