Room was very clean. No hassle check in. Front desk clerk was friendly, gave accurate and detailed directions. I was very pleased with this property and will stay here again.

This could have been a decent hotel but my room was next to a motor room. Loud noise with high pitch squeek all night long. After tossing and turning all night I finally just got up at 4:30 am took shower and went to front desk to complain. I would have asked to be moved but the hotel was sold... More

We stayed at La Quinta because of a competition our son had to attend. The room was very nice and clean, it smelled wonderful. Beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was fairly clean (no hairs on the floor or sink). The front desk person was very nice when we checked in. The rooms are very quiet and so are their new... More

We've stayed here twice and will stay again. It's close to Busch Gardens, USF, MOSI and many other spots in Tampa. The hotel is quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have a continental breakfast, a beautiful pool area and accept pets! The beds are extremely comfortable. The rooms have flat screen tvs. You feel right at home.

We had a great stay at this hotel for a weekend event at USF. There were 3 adults in the room with 2 double beds. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was a great size! The pool area was nice, it is very close to USF, and it's clean. Breakfast was adequate, but a little disappointing. No hot... More

After being appalled at the condition of the La Quinta near Busch Gardens, we drove a mile down the road to stay at the hotel located across from the university. Unlike most La Quintas, this hotel has access to the rooms from the inside. It is a four story structure that has recently been refurbished. The rooms are spacious and... More
