I have some mixed feelings about our stay, because overall the room was clean and well appointed for a mid priced hotel. The free breakfast was on the more minimalist side of free breakfasts, but it served its purpose. Check in was pretty painless. But there were two notable irritants ... One was a frustration I have often had at... More

This hotel is awesome. Rooms are clean and neat. Beds are comfortable. TV and WiFi are good. Staff is polite and helpful. Very reasonable price. There are many restaurants near by and it is near Busch Gardens. Breakfast is good.

Having a son just beginning school at USF, in Tampa, I have tried a few different hotels in the area. This LaQuinta is nearly across from the main way in! PEFECT location to USF. Also - much nicer than others in the area - tropical area, pool, hot tub all outside and very inviting. BEST of all - go on... More

La Quinta generally gets a bad rap, but I have stayed twice at the USF hotel and have had a very nice experience. The rooms are clean and big and the outdoor pool area is very nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The price is generally lower than the the other ones in the area. I'm generally a hotel... More

Spent one night here with our 3 dogs and it was quite comfortable. The room was clean and spacious and the front desk staff was extremely nice. My only complaint was the air conditioning - it most definitely wasn't cooling like it should have been. If you're traveling with pets, I'd recommend this hotel.

La Quinta Inns along East Fowler Ave, Tampa, Fl. was used frequently while our son was undergoing treatment at a local cancer treatment facility. Our entire family ( including our son's puppy dog ) received the greatest service and we all appreciate the staff at the Fowler Ave location.

On June 19, 2014 we stayed here while our son went through orientation at USF, which is near bye. The front desk staff was professional and knowledgable. Initially the room looked clean but as soon as I took my shoes off and walked across the carpet i noticed it was very rough like it needed to be spot cleaned. I... More

This is the second time we have stayed at a LaQuinta Inn. I have nothing but positive comments regarding this visit. From the time of making reservations to check out, the staff were helpful and courteous. The room was adequate for our needs and I plan to use LaQuinta Inn for future visits to Moffitt Cancer Center.

Spent one night here recently. Quick and easy check in. Clean room and property. Comfortable beds. Nice pool area. Lovely landscaping. All for just under $70 per night. Only downside was the breakfast. Awful coffee but then I'm particular about that. Very limited breakfast selections. Very close to Busch Gardens.
