We were pleasantly surprised by our stay... after researching the reviews on the hotel, we booked our room. The price was very reasonable and the room had been recently remodeled and was clean. The bathroom was clean but there was some mold in the multi-tub surround. The bathrooms could use some updating. The bed was very comfortable. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. After we checked in, I asked the woman at the front desk about a cup of tea. She offered to turn on the coffee machine for me. The breakfast was decent, loved the Belgian waffles! And for the price of the room, breakfast was certainly a bonus! We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with two queen beds are bigger than the rooms with one king

The hotel is situated on a six lane hwy. Getting in and out of the property took some time. Upon check-in the staff seemed pretty irritated to do so. There was old furniture in the stairwells and the hallways were very warm as if there was no a\c on. Every interaction with the staff was very unpleasant. The house keeping could use a bit more effort in there work as my 12 year old cleans better. Lots of questionable individuals roaming around as well. I won't stay again and there's much better options in the area.

We visited Tampa to attend my grandmother's funeral. We needed a place in a bind and the La Quinta was available for a pretty decent rate. Location was clean, the let us check in early, had a great pool, bed was comfy, and the maids kept us stocked on towels. The breakfast is your basic continental offering: waffle maker, hard boiled eggs, bagels, cereal and toast. Small offering but it is complimentary which is always nice. Biggest thing was the customer service. The front desk, especially Shannon, was a pleasure to do business with and did everything in their power to make my stay better. Thanks for a job well done!

Room Tip: Ask for the 3rd floor is you have pet allergens. This is a pet friendly hotel and they tend not to p...

The night we walked in the front desk guy was very kind and took care of us, although he had to handle a dozen things and phone calls - so we were very happy. The first room was very good, but the a/c failed - and we immediately received a new room and the front desk apologized although this clearly wasn't their fault. Customers are clearly welcome and enjoy first priority - that's great.The second room was also spacious, clean and the lcd tv with modern multimedia was great during a rainy night. The a/c worked perfectly. Overall this place offered a great performance for a good price.

This was a newish looking, clean hotel for $60 right next to the airport. Even though we were on the top floor near the airport, we could barely hear the plane noise. We were very surprised by the spaciousness and newness of the room. it was very nice for $60. The front desk people were nice, and the breakfast was what was advertised (and was included): toast, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, waffles, yogurt, apples, oranges, etc.
