Visiting in Tampa is always fun, and having a great place to stay makes the visit even better! The staff are friendly and personable, the facility is spotless, which all contribute to a fun, relaxing time for their guests. It is our choice of places to stay in Tampa!

My mother had surgery at Moffitt Cancer Center and La Quinta was great. The staff treated us very well and the price was great. It was nice to be able to have a room that was clean and quiet. La Quinta allowed me to keep my mothers car in the parking lot until she was discharged from the hospital. thank... More

I felt quite comfortable and at home during my 3 weeks stay at La Quinta Inn & Suites near Busch Gardens; the facilities and services were very suitable for my needs. for example, 24-hour WiFi internet, good breakfast, large number of parking lots, computer printing services, gym, swimming pool, etc. Furthermore, I liked its proximity to the University of South...

Efficient staff, very clean and well appointed common areas. Rooms are large and have an upscale feel. Pet friendly but there is never any "evidence" that pets are in the hotel..... a "bark" here a "woof" there, never a problem. This is my second stay here.

This is a very clean, attractive hotel in close proximity to USF, Bush Gardens, Moffitt and Shriners hospitals. Rates are reasonable and there are many amenities. The bed was plush, pool and spa well maintained, breakfast included, weight room and Wi-Fi connections, plus it is pet friendly. It is close to I-75 and easy to find.

Minutes from Busch Gardens - was easy to drop off my teenagers and pick them up at closing time at the front entrance.... was very surprised - little traffic there because the parking lot itself is totally separate. Free Breakfast was great - waffles, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, etc etc! Plenty of free parking and nearby eateries- near MOSI... More

Very nice hotel especially if you are going to go to Busch Gardens. Pets are allowed and the rooms are huge as too are the bathrooms. Easy access and very close to I-75. You will be right across from University of South Florida (USF).

I might have expected too much.. But I had a homesick during my stay in this hotel. The room did not block noises from the hallway even though my room was pretty far from the elevators and I could even hear others using bathroom. Also, I found some corners and areas where they were not cleaned (someone's tiny hair was... More
