“good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Close to Busch Gardens, Clean, friendly, good time for our family. Breakfast was adequate, more choices would be better. Close to everything we needed. It would be nice to have a refridgerator and an in room safe. Could see the fireworks every night from the pool.

Room was acceptable for a couple nights stay and location was next to Busch Gardens as across the street, but 1 mile from park entrance which is a 20 minute walk give or take. Overall good experience no complaints. Breakfast was fine everything tasted good.

This is an older hotel but is clean and the staff was great! I liked the location and proximity to Busch Gardens. At night we were able to view the fireworks from the parking lot. The only downside to the hotel was the small breakfast. They have a large breakfast area but the selection was lacking in comparison to other LQ hotels. That aside, I will be staying here again next summer.

This is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in in many years. This property is in need of a complete remodel or a tear down! The location was excellent for visitors to Busch Gardens, but it is bad! The sinks and tubs looked worse than what you would find in a junk yard - ships and stains all over. The shower in one of our rooms did not work at all. The towels were the smallest that I have ever seen - the bath towels were just a bit larger than some hand towels. The exterior hallways were very stained and dirty. The door to our room was unable to be closed by my wife without using all the power she has to push and shove. It certainly appears that La Quinta does not have a corporate inspection team to check on the franchise properties, They should be ashamed to allow a property like this one display the La Quinta signage.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel! Stay at the Holiday Express across the street.

It is amazing that this property is still allowed to have the La Quinta sign in front of it. This was the worst hotel I have stayed in in over 30 years! Terrible condition and dirty outside hallways. I would not stay in this property again if they paid me!

The rooms was nothing more then tolerable -. However, there was a lot of family drama at the public area. Fighting and shouting in plain sight.

The rooms could have used a refurbishment since there was fungus in the rooms.
