“Excellent - considering the price we paid”
Reviewed October 10, 2009

We needed a place to stay in Tampa the night before our recent cruise and found this place for $35 a night with the AAA discount. We were a little concerned because the price was so low - it had to be a dump, right? Wrong!! The room was clean, modern, and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. When we landed at the Tampa airport, we called the motel and their courtesy shuttle picked us up within a few minutes. The motel is an easy 10 minute walk to a huge shopping mall with plenty of bars and restaurants and there is an IHOP right next door. The free continental breakfast isn't fancy but offers hard boiled eggs, cereal, bagels, juice, and coffee. They offer a shuttle to the cruise ship terminal for $10 per person but we found a taxi is just as cheap if you have 2 or more people. We would certainly stay at the LaQuinta again.

We flew into Tampa for a concert at the St. Pete Times Forum. Rented a car and booked this hotel through Southwest airline for a mere $39. We weren't expecting much but ended up being completely cozy in a very clean room (#123). There's a 24hr IHOP right next door which helped with the late night snack attack. The next morning we enjoyed our free breakfast of coffee, juice, oatmeal and waffles before our flight out. They also have cereal, bagels, and fruit. You will need a car to get around. Recommended for those like us, who just need a place to rest at the end of the day.

Perhaps it was too late to see the scene pictured on this motel's website, but I was turned off by the presence of an armed security guard dozing on my walk to the room, the spare furnishings, and perhaps the oddest, an old wig under the bed... I mean, how hard is that to notice when cleaning a room. Inexpensive, yes. Internet service, yes. Want a bed in a room with a door that is close to the airport? Go for it.

We stayed here for the first and last night of our driving holiday in Florida. It's location, so close to Tampa airport, after a very long day travelling, was ideal. After a quick free phone call at the airport, we didn't have to wait very long for the courtesy bus to arrive, and it was about a five minute drive to the motel. The young man on reception was always very helpful and obliging. We had a standard room with two beds and it was perfectly adequate. We did not find it noisy considering how close it was to the airport. The breakfast area was quite small and so became a bit hectic if too many people arrived altogether. Breakfast was of a standard continental type. We collected the car from Alamo the following morning, and their depot was just a short distance from the motel. There was no problem with the coutesy bus dropping us off on it's way to the airport. At the end of our holiday, after dropping off the bags at the motel, we returned the car to Alamo, and again the young man at reception arranged for the courtesy bus to collect us. If we flew into Tampa airport again we would not hesitate in staying there again.

Stayed two nights with the wife and dogs for $105 per night. That price was a little on the expensive side for what we got. That is my only complaint, though. This hotel would be much more reasonable for under $79, I would think.
I have stayed in many La Quinta Inns because of their pet policy and this one abides by the policy, taking dogs with no fees. However, if you are traveling with dogs, ask for a room near the front of the building. There isn't much room in the back to walk them.
The room was fairly standard and I thought it was a little on the small side. Not much room besides the bed, desk, dresser and a chair. The bathroom was also fairly small.
It was clean, though, and the grounds were kept up fine. The beds are the newer La Quinta beds and are very comfortable. The shower was pretty good. The breakfast was a little lacking compared to other La Quintas. Just packages of bagels, yogurt, coffee and juices and some waffles to toast, not the kind you make yourself.
Overall, this hotel was fine, clean and we would go back if we were staying in the area again. Nothing bad about it, I just didn't think it was worth the cost I was charged.

Also, there is an upscale mall across the street. It is convenient to the airport and only a mile or two from Raymond James Stadium. Clearwater beach is about a 20 minute drive.
Restaurant recommendation: Turn right out of the parking lot and go a mile or so. Cross over Dale Mabry. The road turns into Columbus. Go about 2 lights until you cross Lincoln. There is a pink cafeteria on the right called La Teresita. Amazing Cuban food. It is very cheap and very casual, but the food is amazing, breakfast or dinner.
