THe location was great needed to be close to U.S.F. The staff was very friendly and helped in questions regarding local business and locations. The staff helped out with some deliveries I had and accommodation I requested. The rooms were very clean and air conditioning was COLD just how I like. Unfortunately, due to the cold weather I was unable... More

The hotel met all our needs. The room is clean, spacious with all the usual amenities. Breakfast is adequate with something for everyone. The hotel staff is courteous and cheerful. The pool looked nice but we did not have time to use it. They could update the bathrooms with small maintenance measures such as thorough cleaning, caulking etc. I would... More

Hotel was nice from outside. We were only there 1 night so I didn't use anything but the room and breakfast. Room was large and clean but the tub had a drip. Breakfast was not good. Very crowded and there was a line for the toaster, the only thing I wanted was some toast or bagel. The cereal was stale.... More

Arrived at the Hotel, had an immediate checkin! The room was very spacious and clean, I asked for a 2nd room for my 2nd night. The lady at the front desk on Saturday the 17th helped me out immensely I needed the 2nd room at least near to the room I already had. She got the rooms side by side!... More

Absolutely the best La Quinta stay so far! We had convenience of location. All the amenities of leisure and exercise and scenery. It was close to our venue and lots of shopping and eating choices available. The path home offered exciting options as well.

Selected this hotel for its proximity to Busch Gardens (5-8 minute drive). King Suite was very comfortable, clean, corner room on first floor. Bathroom faucet did have a leak, notified front desk and they sent maintenance right away. Unfortunately nothing they could do since it was New Year's weekend, but A for effort and response time. Free wifi is nice,... More

This is probably a recent La Quinta Inn and is being kept in very good condition. The room was very large as well as the bathroom. The place was clean, beds were very comfortable and linens, comforters and pillows were extremely clean. I also made use of the guest laundry room, which may require more attention by the staff. This... More

King suite has ample room for small family. King bed very comfortable. Breakfast bar not so great, same stuff every day, no variety. Close to Busch Gardens, restaurants, USF & stores. Attractive pool area. Free parking.

My husband had surgery for a melanoma at The Moffitt Center at USF. We always stay at the LaQuinta because of it's value as well as excellent service and cleanliness. It has become our home away from home when in Tampa.

My husband and I have stayed here several times since November. This place is very close to Moffitt Cancer Center and the staff is very courteous of the special needs we have had. Also, they allow pets at no additional charge. This allowed us to bring our "babies" with us since they are a large part of our family. Yes... More
