“LaQuinta Inn Central Tampa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Very comfortable, clean, and sufficient. Daytime staff is excellent! A very well kept property. Not far from several attractions, malls or restaurants. The front desk staff and housekeeping go above and beyond to make sure you are well satisfied and assure you a comfortable stay. We will definitely be staying with them again in the future.

Room Tip: The king suite is spacious and comfortable

Just too many guests wearing dirty clothes at breakfast that just got up and let their rooms to have breakfast for me to think I might have to walk on that carpet, sleep in that same room as they just came out of for me to stay in this hotel again.

Great service and staff-too much noise in hallways at night and early morning by children allowed to run down floors yelling and slamming doors. Rooms very clean and comfortable, damage to door and curtains from prior stay not repaired before our stay.

After a mess up with our reservation (the online reservation website is outdated and it obviously doesn't work, since they didn't have my reservation I made), our stay was good, thanks to the staff. Unfortunately we had the room right next to the elevator, which meant it was quite noisy, the people not the elevator (slow moving). Breakfast could have more variety, but it was a good start to our day nonetheless. And for some reason, we could not get a good connection to the Wifi. A good location for anyone racing at the Tampa BMX track.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.. I am glad that we were able to accommodate you despite the mix up with the reservations website. We hope that you will return if you ever come to Tampa for BMX racing or another purpose. If you call us for a reservation, or give us a call after making one online, one of our front desk people would be delighted to note in your reservation that your prefer to be in a room which is not near the elevator. I am happy that you found the staff to be nice and accommodating and thank you again for your review.

This hotel is new, and nice. Our room was spacious with 2 queen beds and fridge/ microwave. It was generally clean. The staff was nice. The breakfast was good, but they did not make sure the food was refilled. The location was average.

The staff if friendly. The free breakfast was not bad, it was average but free. The room was in need of maintenance. Floor tiles were loose in the bathroom and shower head was dirty with no pressure. Other than that, average stay. I would recommend this hotel to a friend hoping that not all rooms are in need of maintenance.

My family had 2 rooms here over the Christmas Holiday. My husband and I had a King suite. The bathroom and room were clean & the bed comfortable. The room is showing some signs of wear, but repairs have been made. The only thing I found not working was the lock on the bathroom door. This was not a problem for us... My kids had a 2 queen bed room. My son said their bathroom door did not lock either. That bothered him more than us...he was sharing the room with his sister. He also said there was some fine black particles on the floor under the window. Otherwise the room was clean. The towels are thick, complementary soap and shampoo are provided as well as a blow dryer.
The continental breakfast was adequate. There are waffles (you make them), eggs, yoguart, fruit, packets to make oatmeal & grits, cereal, bagels, muffins, toast and probably more stuff I didn't notice. There is also coffee, milk, juice & teabags to make tea. Coffee is available 24/7.
The desk personnel were professional, courteous & efficient. Our check in took about 5 minutes.
We actually stayed at the motel on Christmas Day as all our family had prior engagements with "in-laws". The king suite room is large enough to set up a small Christmas tree and have room for numerous presents as well.
This motel is 4 story and has indoor corridors and an elevator. There is also an exercise room that has 3 machines in it. We did not check out the pool...was a little cool for that!
This has become our go to motel when in Tampa and will stay here again when in the area.

Room Tip: The motel is pet friendly and anyone with pets are on the first floor...I would get a room on anothe...
