The best part of this hotel is the location. It is 2 miles from Bush Gardens, and really close to USF. There are many restaurants to close by as well as stores. The rooms are spacious and well laid out. But the entire hotel could use updating. The breakfast is just ok and the area gets very crowded every morning.... More

Staff friendly. Room and bath cleans. Excellent bed. The carpet is old but clean. Good breakfast and park. Bushgarden in two minutes by car. Not near from downtown. You need a car to visit beaches, park and mall. good restaurants around.

A good value for a business traveler, this was your typical middle of the pack hotel. There were no major problems, but also nothing that makes the stay memorable. Keep in mind that this a pet friendly hotel, I forgot until the hound in an adjacent room decided to let the floor know he needed a walk.

This hotel is located directly across from USF Tampa campus. It was perfect for me and my family as we visited for my daughter's graduation. Located on a main thoroughfare but we still had a very quiet room. Lots of places to choose from to eat and shop in the area. Easy access to freeway. This hotel is different from... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of this older LaQuinta. We are Gold Card Members and have stayed at a lot of LaQuintas, due to traveling with 2 Chihuahuas and this one was great. Yes, it's older and the rooms are a little smaller, but everything was very clean, and... More

We recently stayed up here on a visit to see the USF Campus. First of all it says that it is across the street from USF. It is not. You could walk it, but the area is not very uplifting to be around. Fowler Street is one of the dirtiest and busiest streets I have ever been on. I did... More

The hotel was in a convenient location to Busch Gardens and lots of restaurants. The price was good. We were not planning on spending much time in the room. You definitely don't get many bells and whistles. One smaller than normal bottle of shampoo and no conditioner (only for one person) so be sure to bring your own. No frills... More

I booked two rooms in April 2014 to visit Busch Gardens. Rooms were very clean. Price was right. Front Desk people were courteous and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again. Very convenient to Busch Gardens.

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
