The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. She even called our room to make sure everything was okay. No hotel has ever done that before!!! Wow! The free breakfast was excellent as well. Would stay at this hotel again. La Quinta Inns and Suites have always been excellent. I always to try to book with them if possible.

First, some pros: it is right across the street from Busch Gardens; there are a lot of low-to-medium priced restaurants within a few blocks; the room have clean microwaves and refrig; the staff was detached but friendly; and, surprisingly, the bed was very comfortable! Now...this is an older and VERY well-used hotel. They are not keeping up with renovations...the rooms... More

This was my fourth visit to this hotel and each time I visit there have been improvements. The staff is very good and take care of you. The hotel is located close to everything. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for value.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Only one worse was Motel 6 in Walterboro. That hotel, I left after a short nap. This hotel is old, like an old motel. Very convenient to Busch Gardens, but I'm sure the animals have better accommodations. My room smelled like smoke and not from just an overnight stay, like... More

The La Quinta Tampa - Busch Gardens was clean and comfortable. Amenities are at a minimum. Standard room needs microwave and at least an optional fridge. Florida swimming pools should be heated. Walls are very thin so if you have a noisy neighbor you'll be out of luck. Good access to Busch Gardens, though requires either 25 minute walk or... More

Stay here if you want a great location near Busch Gardens (20 minute walk from front door to the actual entrance gates), not fancy or luxurious, but satisfactory for the category that it is in---a bit older, but all clean, comfortable, functional. No interior corridors; access is by door to the outside. Does have elevator. Continental breakfast was adequate--includes bagels... More

Awesome staff! Nice, quick, and professional.. The rooms are spotless and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good and healthy but lacks a bit more variety... i stay quite often, haven't had an incident yet.... :)

If you plan on going to Busch Gardens, this is a good hotel for you. Nothing fancy, but is in a great location right across the street from the park. We walked to Busch Gardens and saved paying for parking. The breakfast was average. Nothing exciting, but enough to start your day. Our room was just average too. Clean, but... More

LaQuinta is an excellent chain. The Busch Garden facility rooms need updating. This particular time, the room had a bad odor, and the carpets were stained badly. When I drive across country, I always find one conveniently near. Always the best value, just disappointed in my last stay. I will continue to use them.
