“Totally Amazed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you are looking for quality service then look no further. I stayed at this hotel and was amazed at the customer service that was given from a employee named Jodee. I won't go into detail about an incident that happened while I was there but I will say that jodee handled the situation perfectly, while always being polite and kind and compassionate towards the person involved (even though in my opinion this guest did not deserve jodee's compassion)
I have stayed over in a lot of hotels all ranging from 3 star to 5 star, but never have I come across someone who's customer service skills leave you speechless.
This employee is beyond a doubt an asset to this establishment and I only hope they see this as well for jodee is the front for this hotel and like they always say, first impressions make a lasting impression. With jodee there, they wont ever have to worry about first impressions.

Needed a "cheap" place to stay for one night - in the Tampa area - not the first time at a La Quinta and I had had good experiences before. The rate was definitely reasonable especially for Tampa, but the place was a little tired... needing brightening up and the room definitely needed an update. Didn't use the pool, looked like it needed some work as well. The concierge/desk clerk was very friendly and helpful, the location was convenient although not the best neighborhood. OK for one night, but wouldn't want to have stayed too long. Bed was very comfortable... took a while to figure out how to use the shower!!! Lighting in the bathroom was flattering but not great for making up. Tub was cracked! So as I said, definitely needs so updating! Had a nice fitness room, didn't have time, but would have liked to try it. OVERALL: not a bad bang for the buck!

Stayed one night here after arriving via taxi from airport at 3 am. Chose because it is directly across the street from Budget Car rental, allowing us to avoid the premium of renting at the airport, but here the next day.

Room was good size and breakfast included all the necessary items, yogurt, waffles, hard boiled eggs, fruit.

Good location. In walking distance to restaurants and nightlife. Nice clean rooms and friendly staff. Was surprised by how comfortable the beds were. There is a pool outside but the weather did not cooperate during my stay. The fitness center was a little to small and there were no free weights just a treadmill and a couple of ellipticals. Breakfast was better than just a continental but not IHOP. There are cookies at the front desk if you can get to the jar before whoever else.

We stayed here for Gasparilla on a saturday night. Great location, close to everything! Very small parking lot with cramped spaces and the breakfast could have been better. Slightly over priced for my taste and for a La Quinta but it was convenient to everything and the staff was friendly. Recommended.
