I just finished writing about our recent disappointing experience with the lumpy pillows, wet carpeting and tiny bathroom. Don't know what happened to that explaination. Your survey is very hard to complete - I wrote all this earlier in this survey and now you want me to waste my valuable time to repeat it. As you can gather I was... More

Everything was great during my stay. I can't even put into words how great everyone was. The breakfast room attendant was so sweet and walked up to everyone with a smile on her face and greeted each guest.

I stayed here for one night so I could go to Howlscream in Busch Gardens. I arrived at 130 or so and the lovely lady let me check in then, I highly appreciate that. Once we walked in the room took a minute to figure out the air but it cool off the room nice and fast. Yes bathroom is... More

I arrived just before 2:30, and was greeted by one desk agent. Understandable since it is slow. She was very friendly, at first couldn't find my reservation but then again I booked 3rd party and that happens sometimes. I got my room within 5 minutes and was able to easily find it. Upon entering I was greeted by a musty... More

If you're looking for an affordable and spacious room to share on your trip to Busch Gardens, I would highly recommend LQ. We stayed in their 2-bedroom King sweet and it comfortably accommodated 4 people and 1 large dog throughout the night. You can walk to the gates of Busch Gardens from the hotel room and it's less than a... More

The location is great for the theme park. For the price, rooms were very comfortable. As a person who works in hospitality I would say the customer service should be worked on a little better as Agents should acknowledge guest while they are assisting guest over the phone. The coffee maker looked like they never inspected it. Breakfast was good... More

Great Value at this La Quinta. Quick check in, clean room, very good breakfast. The check out was equally efficient. The room did lack refrigerator and microwave. We had left overs from dinner at Olive Garden across the street but no where to save.

The hotel is basic but adequate. Room was clean and functional. Nice pool. Busch Gardens is approx 20 minutes away by foot. (30 if your teenager moans all the way about not taking the car and drags his heels.) The shower over the bath was decent. Plenty places to eat nearby.
