“Great staff, great location, thin walls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I stayed here for one night into my arrival to tampa. Conveniently located right near the airport (free shuttle) as well as walking distance to convenience store as well as international mall. The staff were pleasant, and the "breakfast" included was just ok. I was pleasantly surprised to see my room included a fridge and a microwave. The walls, however, are extremely thin and you can hear everything from your neighbors. If you have quiet neighbors, this isn't an issue. I didn't have quiet neighbors, so they ended up keeping me up most of the night...would not have been pleased if I had an early morning flight to catch. I could have called to complain, but I didn't so I can't speak of the service if I had. Overall, I would definitely stay again, but I would try to see if there is a quiet room available.

Free airport shuttle. Pet friendly at no additional cost. Lot of restaurants at mall across the street. Staff is always accommodating.

Stayed pre and post cruise. Free airport shuttle, round trip port shuttle for $10 per person. A mall with over 15 restaurants and shopping within walking distance, plus an IHOP right next door. Friendly and very helpful staff, clean rooms, nice neighborhood.

We stayed here for one night before boarding a cruise! It was very affordable compared to other hotels in the area under $100 including transportation from the airport and to the cruise ship. ( which was paid separate but still under $100) there is a mall about a block and a half down which is an easy wall but you do have to cross a very large intersection.

The room was very clean it did have a musty smell and maybe previously was a smoking room. The king size bed we had was extremely comfortable and the room was spacious! You can hear the planes taking off but it wasn't so loud that it woke us up.
I loved they offer free wifi which I'm using now to write this review!

As hotels, motels go, this La Quinta Inn is average and by itself, nothing out of the ordinary other than the fact that if you're connecting at TPA-airport, it's close enough and good value to use as a stop-over place which is what we were doing.
HOWEVER, it's the staff at this La Quinta that make it so exceptional. The Front Desk staff, most notably, I believe the Front Desk Manager ( who's name I forgot to note) made us feel like we were the only and most important customers on her list. Considering that there was a major football game just up the street and the place was booked solid, we felt she would have other things on her mind than two travelers passing through. On the contrary. each time we passed the front desk, be it to go for a walk, go to breakfast ~ we were greeted as if Royalty.
What a pleasant supprise.
On our next trip through Tampa, I will make it a point to stay there as opposed to the hundreds of other options available.

We stayed overnight at La Quinta on Jan. 5th-6th, 2013. The room was clean with contemporary furnishings and decor. It can be a little noisy at night since the hotel has the typical style courtyard and people are coming and going at all times. But aside from that, it's a good hotel with a decent price per night. It was also convenient because they offer shuttle buses to and from the Tampa port for cruises and arrangements can be made for their bus to take you from port to the Tampa airport. Also, it's next door to an Ihop, which is a big plus
