Overall quality of service and accommodations was excellent. Seriously might have been the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in. Upscale room décor and amenities that you would expect to pay much more for. Will be the place we stay at for the next 4 years while my daughter attends USF. I would also note that La Quinta is pet... More

Very comfortable, The room is newly furnished. I slept very well. The bathroom was clean and of great size. We had a great breakfast variety. There where clothes washing machines and driers in every floor. In general the whole ambience of the hotel was very relaxing

We booked a Master Suite for a 2 night stay at this hotel earlier this moth for my family of 5. We checked in and when we walked into our allotted room, we were welcomed by a very strong smoke smell. We certainly wanted a non-smoking room and we called the front desk, the person aplogized and immediately offered us... More

Opposite the roadway on E Fowler, Tampa, this is convenient location for the parents to stay dropping off University of South Florida students. Clean, fresh and pet friendly you can always make this choice with confidence. They provide pool, hot spa and workout room for your stay and a breakfast in the lobby every morning.

Very convenient to U. of So Florida. La Q is quite adequate for business & other visitors. Clean, nice size rooms, comfortable beds. Nice pool area. Lobby and breakfast area well appointed. Continental breakfast average. For me, I would prefer the News on TV instead of nothing but ESPN every morning! But it seems to satisfy most of those visitors.

I would truly like to recognize the amazing staff working at this location in Port Charlotte, FL on Kings Hwy. We stayed in a suite with family, 5 of us and the hotel was very accommodating and fairly reasonably priced for such a large room. The hotel was exceptionally clean, and very accommodating. The staff is some of the friendliest... More

Best booking ever using their app. I reserved using the app making booking rooms easy and convenient. Once we arrived, our room key was waiting for us. Easy peazy lemon squeezy.
