I had never been to such a bad hotel in my life. I went for memorial day weekend with my two daughters and husband. None of us was able to sleep the beds had bed bugs we were all itching all night. The showers were the worst I don't know if it was because we were in the first floor... More

A very attractive hotel, a nice breakfast, and economical to boot. It is so very convenient to the UCF Campus and it is so nice that there is a special rate for those going to the Moffit Cancer Center.

Nice hotel, standard La Quinta. Comfortable, affordable, has the amenities that we like (pool, microwave, fridge). Would easily stay here again. Room contained charging station for cell phone, which was nice. All staff were quite friendly and helpful.

My grandson and I drove up to Tampa to visit the Lowry Park Zoo. Traveling with a toddler can be a little intimidating. The hotel was very nice. I felt safe and secure. Breakfast in the lobby made everything just so easy.

I requested a quiet room and they put a dog right next door. It barked for 3 hours and the front desk could do nothing about it. They finally upon checkout gave the room for free. It appears there is nothing they can do as they are afraid of being bitten.

It was a most pleasant stay .Enjoyed the garden. Room was a nice size and comfortable. Pool area was clean and well kept. Breakfast was very nice. Glad that we found this motel. If we need to use a motel and we are in town we will use it again.

The room has a couch that's a pull out bed. There is a large desk, flat screen TV, microwave and small refrigerator. The bathroom is comfortable for two people to use at the same time. They offer a free small breakfast.
