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

Stayed here because they were pet friendly (had our dog), but also convenient to Busch Gardens and based on past experience. Hotel has had a renovation, and is by far the closest and nicest hotel next to Busch Garden in an area that has fallen somewhat...

The hotel location is good, parking adequate and the services of the staff from front desk to room service is reasonably good. In fact the staff is friendly and responsive to request for service. The wifi service is also adequate although at times quite slow. However, the hotel is in very urgent need of renovation. Except for the reception, everything... More

I don't know how they have managed to put some of these photo's together, it is certainly misleading and we could not get out quick enough. the rooms are dark, dingy and outdated. Not to mention the corridors, looks like a prison wing, the surrounding area is like the ghetto!!!! stay away

I came to Tampa for business purposes. I had an excellent time. What put the icing on the cake was my hotel experience. Everything was spotless. The front desk service was amazing. The only thing I would change up is the breakfast. I would have liked a cooked breakfast. But overall, I truly enjoyed the experience. 9/10

Lady at reception was quite friendly and efficient with a reasonable check in. We had asked for a foldaway bed when booking but was told that request had not come through and didn't know if she could arrange it. Then said the pool was not available as essential maintenance. Was told if we smoked in the non smoking room we... More

Checked into the La Quinta Inn after canceling reservation and a motel just down the road. The people at the desk were VERY NICE and professional. The lobby is very appealing and inviting. They let us check the quality of the rooms before we booked (after previous hotel we had to look). Very clean room and comfortable beds. Large and... More

I was able to book a smoking room with a king size bed. When I got to the hotel that option did not exist. Staff seemed to not care that their site let me book a non existent room. Will not stay at again, only because I want to smoke and not have a twin sized bed. No other issues.

It was a good stay for short-term. Rooms were small, but it's a small hotel overall. The location in the city was good for food and shopping. Don't expect anything really extravagant. But it's good for a night or two.
