There is no charge for a pet which is very nice. The rooms were extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable with lots of good pillows. The room looked recently remodeled and had a very warm inviting look.

No extra fees for dog, very clean, no bugs at all, the staff is very freindly and helpfull, room was very clean, very close from Busch Gardens (take a taxi for low fare), i would recommand this hotel, loved it. This hotel is about two blocs from the other La Quinta and it worth the distance.

The room was very clean and the staff were very helpful. Great location for our purposes. Our room, with a sofa, was large and very comfortable. Breakfast was good with a nice large open seating area.
