4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We stayed recently because we had to take a family member to the airport. It is not perfect, but it is a very good hotel. The staff was friendly and efficient. The airport shuttle was the best part because the drivers were prompt and courteous. Everyone was very helpful. Breakfast was average but fine, and very good when you consider the price. I would definitely use this hotel again.

Room Tip: The bathroom and shower are on the smaller side, just in case you have larger people in your party...

We stayed here for one night after arriving late into Tampa Airport. The hotel is really convenient for the airport. The check in staff were pleasant and efficient and our room was pretty spacious, not luxurious but we did not expect that for what we paid.

The breakfast area was small and the choice at breakfast was somewhat limited but again this was in line with our expectations given the cost of the hotel (if this were a real problem there is an IHOP next door).

What can lift a budget hotel above average is the attitude of the staff and it is the friendliness of the staff that moved this from average to very good.

I stayed in La Quinta on Spruce for 5 days.i was in Tampa for the funeral of my husband and choose this motel since it was close by the airport and has a shuttle. When i first walked in i didnt see anyone for minutes and had allready a bad feeling. But it turned out i was wrong. The whole stay the manager Jonathan and his team were very helpfull and always friendly. My internet was my only way to stay connected with my family in europe and when the manager couldnt fix it he contacted a company to fix it. When they couldnt take out the cigarette smell out of the room they just moved me to another one and helped me doing that. I felt fine there even in this sad situation.

We stayed at the La Quinta Inn close to Tampa Int. Airport to avoid rush hour traffic for a mid-morning flight. Check-in was easy and the room was very clean. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The air in our room didn't work very well but it was tolerable. We went to a sporting event after checking in and didn't return until late and didn't want to try and change rooms. We didn't eat the free breakfast but it seemed adequate. The best part of the stay was the low price and the free shuttle to the airport. We would stay here again.

My family and I stood here on August 4, 2013 for one night. We didn't like the room because it reminded us of the motel in the movie "Pyscho". Although the room was clean the bathroom wasn't up to par, the curtains looked like it was purchased from the 99 cent store. It's ashame because I love Laquinta Inn, but just not this location.
