Actually I might consider this property slightly below average considering the cost. This hotel is worn out all-around and needs some upgrades. We had requested a non-smoking room but the stale smell of cigarettes permeated our room. Furthermore it could use a good cleaning both in the rooms as well as the common areas. I stayed here as the other... More

La Quinta is a very clean hotel, centrally located, and has friendly staff. The room was quite nice but the bed was just average. I would also appreciate a larger selection of breakfast foods. As with most hotels, the pool towels were too small.

After a long flight we were ready to crash, yet had to haggle at least 15 minutes to actually get a room that I had booked a month earlier online! After the lady agreed to "give" is a room, it was a "smoking" room and I had to further beg for a nonsmoking! When we FINALLY got a room, it... More

I did not enjoy my stay at this hotel primarily because of poor water pressure in the rooms, hot tub, etc. The rooms are large, but the amenities are sub-par. It was not particulaly cheap either. I used this hotel because of the location to Moffitt, but I would prefer the Park Hyatt just down the street.

We always stay at La Quintas while traveling around the country as they are clean, convenient, and welcome our two Springer Spaniels without a pet fee. I was sent to Tampa on business for a week and my husband brought the pups and came to keep me company when I wasn't working. I selected this location by looking at the... More

Clean, friendly and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and professional. Making a reservation was quick and easy. The set up of the rooms makes you feel like you have a little apartment. The furnishings in the rooms are functional and comfortable.

I stayed here for a few night while I visited my father at the Mofitt Cancer Center. Their standard two bed room was spacious enough for my wife and two kids to stretch and have plenty of room to run around. The bathroom is spacious with a garden tub, and the room is very clean. To add to the already... More

We always use this hotel when I have early appointments at Moffitt Cancer Center. On this particular visit, there wasn't a king room available so we were provided a suite. It was very clean, comfortable, in good condition and on the first floor, as I had requested. We definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends.

The hotel was clean, the room was comfortable, the staff was pleasant and efficient, the breakfast was substantial with healthy choices. It cannot be any more convenient to campus. There is a pleasant outdoor area with a nicely heated pool and jacuzzi. There is no reason to not stay here.

I have to say if you want a good room for the night, this is the place. If you want something to eat and to grab a coffee, then run away as soon as you wake. I am on the road 80 days a year and this place has made it into the top 3 "Worst Breakfast" honors. Cold boiled... More
