We had booked this room ahead of time. When we arrived, a plane was flying overhead and I thought oh my goodness we surely won't be getting any sleep tonight. Surprisingly it was not an issue at all. My son enjoyed the pool before we all turned in for the night. The hotel was clean and a nice breakfast was...

Stayed over night to get away from daily activities.The room we had was a suite that includes freeze and microwave.The bed was very comfortable.The only problem I had was the many construction workers that was at the hotel was being unprofessional to my gf and was brought to management attention.Overall will stay again

We had 2 rooms each with 2 double beds. Rooms were clean, decor was modern, and staff was very friendly. The desk guy was extremely helpful when we needed something. Parking lot could use some work. Would stay again... Great value!

This was my third or fourth visit to this LQ. The sad thing about the place, is that it has barely changed in the last few years. The only good thing about the place, is the location, and that it is easy to get back to the (TPA) airport. It still looks rundown and now the parking lot looks like...

First let me say, Maria, at the front desk was hands down one of the nicest guest services member I have ever encountered. She was extremely friendly and polite. The lobby is a little dark and dreary but I didn't spend much time there anyway. The rooms are nicely renovated however they are a little dark too. I notice this...

I always stay at this La Quinta whenever I am in the area (many times a year). Friendly, helpful staff and management that seems to care about the guest is the overall experience. If a problem arises, the staff does their best to work it out.
