Reviewed August 26, 2014

This hotel was conviently located, good price and very comfortable beds. We also really enjoyed their pool. Breakfast was not very impressive, could have had more hot foods. Overall we enjoyed our experience and would certainly return again.

We stayed 5 days. Spent 2 at Busch Gardens and 2 @ the beach. Only hiccup was the pull out couch was not comfortable for our daughter. She put it on the floor but even that made her back hurt. Other than that it was perfect. I guess next time we will just get 2 rooms.

staff was somewhat nice. bed is uncomfortable pillows kept slipping off the bed, The breakfast was not worth it at all first hotel i see serve hard boiled eggs with the shell on like if you had somewhere to peel it and rinse of the left over shell. response i got when i asked was just grab hot water from the coffee machine it should fall off. Seriously!! Also in mid afternoon asked for extra coffee and creamer they told me i needed to go to the desk and get it. Hskp never came to my room for anything. Its super close to Busch Gardens but that is about it

The staff was friendly. My bathroom was dirty which I did not report until check out (my fault) as we were barely there and too busy. I like the simple breakfast and coffee for a quick bite before we left for the day. The a/c is REALLY loud but constant which is better than shutting on and off all night. And it blocked out street noise since it is in a busy area. You really can't get closer to Busch Gardens if that is your plan. You can even walk from there instead of the $17 parking if you want (about a mile to the entrance, even though it is just across the street - there is a wall to walk around).

we were erroneously given a reservation by booking.com-however the hotel was nice and the staff were great-a bonus is we watched fireworks every night as the hotel is on the backside of busch gardens-which was not our destination-terry was a great check in at the hotel and we do plan to go there again

Booked 2 rooms {non-smoking} get to the hotel, the main lobby looks ok, but the area is very shady!! get to the first room and it reeks of weed and cigarette smoke, not clean at all, make my way to the second room, had to step over a pool of beer, get to the room and it smells even worse! Go back to the lobby and all they can say is they are sorry and cannot guarantee that any other rooms will not have the same issue. So had to go to another hotel and pay over $200 more so I can get a clean and non-smoking room!! Will never go back or recommend this hotel to anyone, not even my worse enemy!!!

Room Tip: rooms reek of weed and cigarette smoke, stay far away from this hotel... its really a MOTEL!

We always stay in LaQuinta. By far this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was extremely disappointed with the hotel, staff and especially the room. Rooms smelled like smoke, tub was dirty and mold around toliet. When I went to front desk they were rude and wanted to charge me for room change and extra if I wanted a frig or microwave. We stayed only for one night. Definately not worth any amount of money. The only plus.. Busch Gardens right across the street and we were able to see the fireworks
