If you're looking for something close by several things it's a good hotel. I defiantly enjoyed that it was less than a mile away from bush gardens which is where I spent my weekend. For the most part the hotel was somewhat clean. Could use a good grout cleanup and maybe some fresher sheets. Overall it was a decent hotel... More

The hotel was fine, but again, the rooms do not smell good. We carry carpet freshener and air deodorizer. LaQuinta is a great choice for pet owners, but they really do need to consider removing the carpet in the rooms which will allow for better cleanup of any accidents.

Came here for one night to go to Busch Gardens. Staff was really friendly and accommodating. Room is very clean and well maintained. Got a smoking room and it didn't smell like an ashtray. Smelled fresh and clean. A/C was on when we got into the room, which was awesome in this heat. Thank you for the forethought. Definitely went... More

I told them every time i would be paying cash when i arrived, i always have trouble with cards on vacation. Upon arrival they refused my cash and i started... More

I booked this room after staying in a nightmarish hotel the previous night. I felt relieved to find it very clean & the staff was very friendly. It exceeded my expectations & I would definitely stay there again if I was in the area. They have security on site & after a knock on my door at 3:00 am they... More

This was a great mid-level price range hotel. The staff were very nice, we got a great price and the beds were very comfortable! There is no shuttle for Busch Gardens, but if you're up for the walk, it's do-able. We opted to drive & pay for parking. We had pizza delivered one night & there are lots of fast... More

We stayed here 2 nights and had no problems. It was clean and comfortable. The only real issue is the amenities. There was no mini fridge or microwave in our room, which is hard to believe any hotel wouldn't at least have these. However, my daughter left some clothes behind and they held onto them and made it easy for... More

I have intended on staying 3 nights, but checked out after 1. The room and bathroom are dated and I didn't care for the neighborhood in which this property is located. There was no cellphone service inside the room, so many guests where wondering the halls (outside) talking on their cellphones. The employee were very nice.

A basic hotel with everything you need, it even has a decent pool. It has a wide range of eating places nearby. The breakfast is good. Across the road from Busch gardens and it is very good value. Recommended for families.

Very clean and pet friendly. We have stayed at this location (Tampa - Busch Gardens) a dozen times. We are able to request the same room for each visit; to which makes it feel like home-sweet-home. Our 2 yorkies feel comfortable in the familiar room.
