We used to go to la Quinta Inn Bush Gardens, for many years But 2 years ago we went back in France I had around 8.000 points which got lost. It was a pleasant hotel, quiet it still a nice hotel but noisy, too much chlorine in the pool, old leak and mildew in a room

Also we paid for two days, we checked in at 1 am, and housekeeping knocked on the door about 5 times at 10am. My wife finally... More

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Just so your aware in the future we have both room types with and without a micro/fridge. You just need to book that room type when making your reservation. When checking in at 1am you will still be paying for the night as the new day to check in doesn't start until after... More

As Stated before, The stay was as expected for the price, but could have been better, the room we had was at the end of hallway which was very hot due to the exhaust of the air conditioners of the other rooms. The service was good, the breakfast was adequate, and the check out was pain-free. Had we been there... More

If you are going to bush gardens and adventure island then this is a good place to stay. It is located a mile away from the park's main entrance. You can park for free at this hotel (they offered private security), and take a uber to and from both parks. The rooms are ok, but don't expect a Marriot or... More

It was okay for the price. The room was clean. There was security all the time, which was good but I felt a bit concerned that there was a need for the security guard. Very close to Bush Gardens. Breakfast was good too, waffles, bagel, cereals, muffins, coffee and juice.

I stayed here 9 nights for a trip that included research at University of South Florida, and a fun break over the weekend with my girlfriend. This hotel is a good base for work and fun. It's a somewhat older building but more solid than a lot of newer hotels I've stayed in where noise is a problem. My room... More

Stayed in this hotel a week ago because of its closeness to Busch gardens. Had a king room and it was very pretty! Very clean that I could see. Our AC was making really weird noises, but it worked fine. Furniture seemed outdated. Over all I recommend this hotel if you're looking for something close to Busch gardens that isn't... More

Pool closed all 4 days. No laying in the sun after a long winter No response from desk. I hope there are new hotels to choose from on my next trip to Tampa. Beds are so uncomfortable I cant believe this is a LaQuinta which usually has nice beds, No one seems to care about the guests at this hotel.

I'm very sorry our pool was closed due to vandalism. I know it is not ideal to have the pool closed for an extended amount of time, but it was necessary for the safety of guest. I hope next time your in Tampa you give us a try so that we can exceed your expectations. More
