The service at the front desk, Jodee was amazing. She would be one of the reason that I would return to La Quinta in Tampa - Gandy Blvd. Her professional customer service made me feel very welcome. She went out of her way to make sure the card key was working right, after I tried twice and it did not work. Do not lose this wonderful lady. She is a great and amazing person to your hotel.

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted warmly by a wonderful lady named Jodee. She was extremely professional and helpfull with any problems or questions we had. As soon as we approached her with a situation she was right on the ball to fix it. Even though we were very dissatisfied with our room experience, Jodee was a pure joy, a possitive asset to this business. Any time we would arrive or leave she always joyfully talked with us and made sure if there was anything she could do to make our stay better, she would do it. Thank you Jodee for making our stay manageable with your possitive attitude and willingness to proptly rectify any problems we had.

My family and I passed through Tampa recently and we ended up staying at the Laquinta on W Gandy Blvd. We were met by a lovely and VERY sweet lady at the front desk. Her name was Jodie. This lady said and did everything perfect before we even left the lobby to go to our room. Once in the room though, we were very dissapointed. One of the beds looked like it had been slept in and the room had a strong musty smell to it. When we looked in the bathroom, the bath had mould all around the bottom and the toilet had water leaking from it somewhere. One call down to Jodie though and she went above and beyond to help us rectify the situation. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for this amazing lady at the front desk, we would have grabbed our bags and headed right out of there, but it is because of what she said and did for us, that we will give the hotel another try on our way back home when we pass through Tampa again soon. This lady is an asset to this hotel in a very big way. Thanks Jodie

Second time at this property and very pleased once again. The location is perfect for us, the property is recently made new, service is "bend over backwards" pleasant and helpful and the rate is always unbelievably low. Fridge and microwave make the stay convenient. Highly receommend this hotel for anyone visiting South Tampa.

I have just ended a longer stay (67 days to be exact) at La Quinta Inns & Suites, 4620 W. Gandy Blvd. in Tampa with my 16 years old daughter. Despite I have been travelling in many countries and stayed in many different hotels ranging from 1 to 5 stars, I have never experienced a hotel with a better service and more caring, helpful and loving staff!! They made our long stay so very pleasant, and from the first moment we felt like home! Special thanks goes to Jay the wonderful manager, who makes this a real family place, Jodee – this fantastic lady in the front disk, who just makes this place SHINE, with all her love and care for the guests & Albert the helpful and funny morning guy, who made our mornings so nice, with all his advices for good wildlife watching and real interest in our wellbeing. We can’t thank you enough guys – you are wonderful!!
