I picked this La Quinta location on a whim as I had never been to USF and had to do an event on the campus for my job. The location was near enough, but I must admit, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the hotel. It was definitely a newer hotel and in a... More

We were unexpectedly in town for a night in Tampa. We were very pleased with the La Quinta USF location. This is a newer hotel. We stayed in a King Suite. This compared with an Embassy Suites King suite but was more spacious with a very open layout. The breakfast foods had a wide variety of choices. Great place to... More

I'm extremely happy with my first stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites. Staff was very courteous, willing to help. Room was clean and spacious. There are two small restaurants within walking distance. Will choose this place again!!!

Great location; Reasonably priced; very clean room--a little more space than most; good continental breakfast. Staff was courteous, pleasant and eager to please. Only complaint was the noisy a/c.

We were not impressed with this La Quinta. There's another one very close to this location that usually averages about $20/night cheaper. We've now stayed at both and I can tell you to save your money and stay at the other one. Neither location is fancy, but I expected the more expensive one to be better. It wasn't. Negatives: The...

I booked the LaQuinta Inn USF (near Busch Gardens) using Hotwire.com. I needed three rooms for a quick visit to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream. Unfortunately, Hotwire lists this hotel as a 3 star hotel (like a Holiday Inn, Radisson or Doubletree), and this hotel is FAR from that quality. What the hotel does provide is a clean room with a...

This hotel is just a few minutes drive from Busch Gardens. Ideal for a couple of nights at the start/end of your holiday. The rooms are large and very clean and comfortable. There are not too many staff around but the ones that are are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is located on a busy road with not too... More

This was our first time staying at a La Quinta, and I was traveling with my husband and 6 teenagers. The price was so competitive that I did not expect much. I was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were quite large, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms with granite tops, and everything was very clean. Breakfasts each morning were very good, we... More

Just returned from a trip to FL. We enjoyed this hotel more than some that cost much more. The hotel was clean, and the staff were very friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice, clean and friendly place to stay in Tampa. You just can't beat it for the rate - which I think was... More
