We were only in Tampa for 3 nights and stayed at La Quinta. It was such a great deal considering our room had a refrigerator and microwave (many places charge extra now for these amenities). Continental breakfast and parking was free. Very close to restaurants and shopping. We were only a few minutes away from Busch Gardens. There was also a laundry room on our floor. Check in was fast and painless. Staff was friendly. The only thing was that the carpet was not very clean.
