We stayed here the night before my appointment at Moffitt Cancer Center which is located only about a mile away. The staff were great and helped us find a great steak house nearby. The room was very spacious and superbly clean. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on in any hotel. If you have to go... More

This was a long stay we were moving to tampa but our apartment wasn't approved in time and we had to find a place to stay near USF. This was the perfect spot, we had a bad experience at a smaller hotel and we were crossing our fingers for this one but it came true. We arrived at night the... More

My stay was comfortable and pleasant. The hospitality was optimal and all employees seemed friendly and were very helpful. The breakfast selection was just right. I only wished it was offered longer than the 2 hour window of 6-8 am. All in all my stay was really good.

This was a nice comfortable place to stay and very clean. The breakfast had good selections. Staff was eager to help you and was always working. I would stay here again. It was close to Bush Gardens and many other attractions.

I checked into La Quinta Inn & Suites at the last minute to be near my wife who was in Florida Hospital for a second night. Under the tress of the situation I did not check my blood sugar as often as usual. Consequently I went low -real low- and became completely disoriented while checking in and trying to get... More

The Inn is attractive from the street and the staff is cordial giving directions and restaurant recommendations. The rooms are roomy but then the 'stuff starts'. The side door is supposed to be locked at all times but is not. The telephone in the room does not work as it is not plugged in correctly and the refrigerator leaks making... More

This hotel is our preferred place to stay when appointments at Moffitt Cancer Center are scheduled early the next day. It is so pleasant, comfortable, and most importantly for me, CLEAN that we wouldn't consider going anywhere else. We appreciate the comfy beds, the Wi-Fi, and the breakfast room.
