If your planning on going to Busch Gardens,you can't find a better location.pedestrian entrance is 1/2 mile away. Within blocks to max. 2 miles away from hotel you have shopping,restaurants,fast food restaurants,CVS,Publix,Hospital etc..,the room was clean the bed was comfortable and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I would recommend it to all my friends and family!!!

The room is outside entry, which i dont like. However the room was pretty clean. The outside, not so much. The breakfast area was nice but not a lot of variety. It is close to busch gardens and USF plus there is lots of places to eat near by. Overall it was so-so.

My husband and I stayed at this LaQuinta because we were spending the next day at Busch Gardens. The rate we got on LQ.COM was fantastic and everything was good. Rooms are pretty basic but you get great value for what you pay for. Comfy clean beds and room. Lots of tv channels. The bathroom and sink area was perfectly cleaned. The pool looked fun but was pretty packed. Breakfast is also pretty basic. Cereal, waffles, fruit, yogurt, and a couple other things. Vending machines throughout and ice available as well. We will stay again when in the area. The only issue we had was they charged the card I made the reservation with instead of charging the credit card I gave them when checking in. But the issue was fixed. Great value for what we paid.

We stayed at 2 different La Quinta Inns in Tampa and this one is so awful. I would recommend everyone to stay at the other La Quinta in Tampa. Our first room had to be switched because there were multiple cockroaches that we saw immediately upon entering the room. Getting the room switched was a little bit of a hassle but we finally got it taken care of. The next room just felt dirty. Thankfully we were only there for two nights for a wedding but we were all disgusted that the bride suggested this La Quinta for the guests to stay. The breakfast is a joke and shouldn't even be considered continental breakfast. More like a box of cereal and watered down milk. There are SOOO many other affordable options--do not stay here.

This hotel was so close to Busch Gardens and in very good condition! We liked that the Pool Area was secure from outside users. Very nice lobby & breakfast area, room very clean! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I loved my stay, the staff are great (never flustered and very attentive) and the rooms are fantastic. We stayed for 11 days and Busch Gardens is right next to the hotel. They have all sorts of eaterys right across the road and the pool was great. The kids loved staying there and playing in the pool. The laundry room is right downstairs and very clean.

The front desk agent Teresa is to be commended for her excellent service at this hotel during my stay here. She was always super friendly and accommodating. There was a mix up with my reservation and Teresa handled it very professionally and had me in a great room quickly. The room was very nice and a great value for the price. The housekeeping staff does a fine job keeping things spic and span here. Nice big flat screen tv in my room and view of the Busch Gardens roller coaster was definitely a bonus too.
I definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
