4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Stayed here en route to Tampa Airport and found it handy also for Clearwater Beach. Notably it features interior corridors and each room has a balcony, unusual in motel type accommodation.
Standard room was spacious and had a fridge and microwave. Included "Bright House" breakfast offered food for microwave heating (bacon, French bread, pancakes, etc) as well as cereals, fruit, toast, etc.
Service at reception was cheerful and helpful.

This is your standard LaQuinta - the rooms were clean and efficient. They have a pool and a hot tub. We booked online at a discount travel site and they didn't give us the right room - we god 2 doubles, not a king. They told me they couldn't upgrade us so we got a $20/night discount. I was satisfied until I found out later that AFTER we had checked in and complained, they upgraded a friend of mine with the same issue. The location leaves something to be desired as there is major roadwork happening on US 19.

Room Tip: We were near the door outside and heard it slam from in our room. Room 416 i think.

We stayed here previously and was very disappointed upon arrival for a 9 day stay. When I asked why the air conditioners weren't turned on to make the room more comfortable when the guest arrives I was told Management doesn't allow air conditioners on so the first impression of two different rooms were hot moldy rooms.

Both rooms we saw had the smell of mold but one of the smoke free room smelled of smoke (the patio door latch was broken).

The hotel hallways are sprayed every day with a fragrance which the Front desk sprayed the room to mask the smell. There was no maid service available to clean the bathroom (originally thought the bathroom was cleaned with a dirty mop.) Maid Service the next day to clean the bathroom because the smell seem to be coming from there but when I returned my husband said they only quick cleaned the room.

All the while we were there the smell didn't go away. My husband noticed on two different occasions bugs floating in the toilet but flushed so I wouldn't see it.

The address on the website is not the true address so GPS will not find the location. Once at the location I plugged in the GPS coordinates to get us back to the hotel. Construction in the area was horrible.

Room Tip: Have alternative hotels so when something like this happens you have a way out.

Very good value compared to extended stay hotels in the area.
If you stay 7 days the rate is about the same as extended stay hotels out by the airport.
The room service is better as you get a quick clean and new towels everyday and a deep clean 2 times a week.
The plus is you still get breakfast.
Construction in area but does not really pose a problem.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights. First, the beds were very comfortable, Sleep great!!!The Hotel was pretty clean, you could tell they have been doing major upgrades to the place. Our room was clean (some hotels have a musty odor from the ac unit) We were very happy with the hotel & room. We passed on the Cont.Breakfst (nothing against it but I would rather go to a restaurant for breakfast) For us, the hotel was in the right location...Driving West we were 15 to 20 minutes from Clearwater Beach, 25 minutes south was St. Petes. Here are my cons: First, when we first arrived the toilet would not flush properly. (Pro for issue: we called downstairs and within 10 minutes maint. came up and cleared the problem). Second, in the hallways they were in the process of installing new recessed lights, wires hanging down kind of a mess. The works were apologetic and said their mess would be cleaned up soon. (Pro to this issue: The guys were cleaning as they were working, when they were done for the evening the hallway was cleaned and vacuumed). Third, the ice machine was outside and around the backside of the building. Our room was 405, for ice we had to go down the hall, outside down the back outside stairs, back inside down the first floor hall, then back outside and around by the pool to the backside of the building...Kind of a long walk for ice! Lastly, Hwy 19 is under major construction. The staff was very helpful in getting around it to get to our destination. (this issue is out of the hotels control, but I a mention on their website about the construction would have been nice). In closing, these small issue (to me) would not stop me from reusing this hotel.

Room Tip: Didn't use the fitness center or the restaurant so I can not rate it. Ice machines are in very...
