This hotel is one of 4 at the Fairgrounds area. You can walk across the street to the venue. Good of an overnight -- but really needs to be renovated. Fridge, bathroom, furniture all old. Staff was at least friendly and room was mostly clean. Skipped breakfast. Breakfast staff and area needs attention and food service training. Not my first... More

Hallway on the third floor smelled like cigarettes. One day, we did not get our room cleaned. I had to call to get towels. Day before Memorial Day, pool area and pool was full of leaves. A guest started to clean the pool so her kids could get in. The room itself was good. Good bed. Bathroom was clean. Windows... More

Staff was professional, courteous and helpful. Location was great for the concert we were attending. However, even though we were told this was a non smoking hotel our room smelled like cigarette smoke. When we ask to change rooms, there were no other rooms available, but we did receive a discount.

Good deal for the price. Good location, Easy access. Friendly staff. Quick service. This hotel could use some more modern updates. Also, a wider variety of breakfast selections could be added. ....................................................................................................................................

We stayed here overnight and the room wasn't the greatest. The bathroom was dated and really not the cleanest room. The beds were uncomfortable The hotel is centrally located and price was cheap so I guess you get what you pay for. I suggest if you can pay a little more for a better experience.

Every few months I have a business meeting in East Tampa out by the Fairgrounds. For the past 4-5 years, I have been staying at the La Quinta as it is located about a mile from the offices where the meetings take place. The location is extremely handy and the proximity to the highway makes it a breeze to get... More

The staff was wonderful but the rooms need a makeover and there were too many people loitering around the exits. Get rid of the vagrant looking people hanging around and lower the price per night to match the value of this property.
