“Great Place if you Like Sleeping in a Kennel !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Two dogs barking in room after owners leave for night-on-the- town. This was complemented by another one further down the hall. Operator said she called the room and left a message, Since dogs always mark their space, made us wonder how many times our carpet had been marked. Breakfast atmosphere would have been better if we had blinders on. Best part of the whole experience was when we left, never to go back !

Room Tip: If you travel with animals and eat with animals, very nice place to stay.

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We always do everything we can to try to insure that every guest enjoys a stay that is up to the standards he or she expects. La Quinta is a pet friendly brand. We require every guest who checks in with a pet to sign a pet agreement form which on which the pet owner agrees to be liable for any damage caused by a pet, and which gives us a cell phone number to contact him should his pet be a disturbance to other guests. With regard to the cleanliness of pet rooms, please be assured that our housekeeping staff takes special care to insure that all rooms, including those occupied with people who came a pet, are cleaned to the highest standard possible. I reiterate my sincerest apology that you were disturbed by pets on your floor and did not enjoy your stay. If there is anything you would like to discuss further, I would welcome your call at 813-490-9090. Thank you for your review.

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

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After a mess up with our reservation (the online reservation website is outdated and it obviously doesn't work, since they didn't have my reservation I made), our stay was good, thanks to the staff.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.
