We arrived and was given a poor welcome. As if the person didn't even want to be there. And gave us a hard time on who's name was on the reservation. Took over an hour to check in. When we finally got to our rooms. The hallway 's and stairway were dirty with cobwebs and smelled of pee. In our...

This hotel had what we needed - good location, a comfortable bed, a good shower, laundry facilities after 8 days on the road and a bathwater-warm pool. We woul use it again if we are in the Tampa area around USF.

Very good service, friendly personnel, minor issue with bathroom resolved right away, excellent location, no complain of any kind. Just to recommend if the breakfast could include some doughnuts and cup cakes, in addition to items offered. Our room was very clean and the daily service perfect.

The experience was on the average quite good even though we stayed only one night. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, the facility is due for a facelift and maintenance. Doors and ventilation equipment are delipidating and require replacements. However, the rooms are splendid and very well cleaned. Quality and service of meals are very good.

Stayed overnight and this place was really nice. Staff was very helpful, Wifi easy to access, room was clean and modern looking and the free breakfast is always nice. Next time I go to Busch Gardens we're definitely staying at this hotel, it's about five minutes away!

Rooms are ok, not you Hampton Inn, but a reasonable price, and they allow pets. Always tell the front desk you have a pet. If your look at the La Quinta website, you can view the pet rules. Highly recommend. No cost to have your pet with you. When we go for the day or out of the room we...

There are two La Quinta hotels within 8 miles of each other. I chose this location because of the slightly cheaper rate. In all, I wasnt pleased with my stay. La Quinta has a reputation of having good quality. However, this location didn't meet that standard. My stay wasn't terrible. It was average, at best, but I expected more. For...

This hotel is one of the least aesthetically pleasing in the area. Unattractive. Bad area. Lacks good service. Our room was above the pool and the staff put a dog next to us. The dog barked at every noise. Front desk was neither apologetic or helpful. We checked out two days early and booked at a beautiful Westin 10 miles...
