We booked this hotel for its location, free internet, and breakfast. The room was comfortable and clean and within 15 minutes walk to the concert venue. Breakfast was not as varied as has been at other La Quinta stays, but enough to get started on the day, including hard boiled eggs, yogurts, waffles, oatmeal, apples, etc.

Booked this hotel due to the fact that it was close to the concert venue and it seemed like a good value. When we arrived at 3pm which is when check in time is stated, the room was not ready but a "rush" was placed on the room for housekeeping and we gave a phone number to be reached when... More

This the worst hotel experience I have ever had in my life. My friends and I booked this hotel for a concert at the Midflorida Amphitheater which this hotel is conveniently across from. However, don't be fooled. We were told check in was at 3 PM so we arrived right on time. Upon arrival, they told us the room was... More

We were here for a concert at the MidFlorida amphitheater so we booked a room for one night. We arrived at 3pm for check-in. They told us that the room was not ready but they would put a rush on it and they will call us when it's ready in 30 mins. We left and went for dinner and drinks... More

Of the 4 hotels near the fairgrounds they had the best price. I was unsure because they were so much lower than holiday inn which is right next door. Buy You can't beat it! Friendly staff, fair price, clean rooms. Next time there's a show nearby we will be back.

Enjoyed our two day stay at this hotel. My husband was working in Tampa but I traveled with him and we were able to spend some fun time touring around Ybor City. Really enjoyed our stay. Clean rooms and extremely friendly staff. Beds were comfy. It was nice to have the breakfast things available to us in the morning and... More

We stayed at this LaQuinta Hotel since it was across the Street from the Mid-Florida Amphitheatre. Made life simple, we walked across the street for the concert. Five Guys burgers next door and we saved $30 for parking, so it was a great value.

For the price I thought it would be nicer. The lobby, elevator and halls are worn. Our room had new carpet and bedding, but the room still smelled of smoke from years past, I assume. The ceiling had yellow spots around the sprinklers which were covered with plastic. Weird. If going to an event I would stay at one of... More

Thanks for the review. We are currently working on improving our existing product, but ultimately we will be renovating in April of 2017. We will see that our maintenance team take a look at the ceilings in the rooms to fix any problems. Our staff is aware of your feedback, and we will correct the problems you found. Thank you...

Overall, this was a decent motel. We did encounter a disgusting problem with the tub which was dealt with directly by management. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location was convenient to the Hard Rock.

An aged property that is maintained well. Clean and comfortable with WiFi, microwave and refrigerator. If you're one of those people, like my late father, who would enjoy eating ketchup on cold spaghetti then you will have no problem with their breakfast though you may wish to avoid the coffee, hard boiled eggs, bagels and waffles...oops, that's everything!
