La Quinta Inn & Suites USF (Near Busch Gardens)
Ranked #37 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Anticipating the arrival of our 1st grandchild, I checked the suggested lodging that appeared on the hospital web page. LQ was chosen due to our limited funds. Three times we had to change the reservation as different developments occurred with the pregnancy. The staff was most helpful and obliging and when they learned the changes were necessary due to medical emergency, they extended us a special discount. Every desk agent was knowledgable, welcoming and provided prompt answers to our questions. They made you feel that you had been friends for a long time. We found the LQ to be very clean and comfortable, well maintained inside as well as out, and would highly recommend this LaQuinta. Our room was on the first floor back side and was very quiet. A mini fridge would have been appreciated.

This is by far the best, well-oiled polite and helpful front desk/maintenance/ housekeeping staff in Tampa....and I have stayed in a few hotels. You are very hospitable, clean and welcomed my dog and I. Great grounds , nice breakfast and I will repeat, the friendly and helpful professional staff are huge to people out of their element and homes....Thank you La Quinta, Kitty, Jason, Sue....Brandy....both men who keep grounds and things working, and countless ladies who went out of their way to help me keep room clean and dog happy. I wish I had more names....Jackie Ross

It's nice to have a pleasant place to smoke outside. One morning we had the entire pool area and hot tub to ourselves. Even though our room looked out onto the pool area it was very quiet. Some rooms have mini fridge but not all. Will stay here again.

I have stayed at this La Quinta several times with the last time just a few days ago. I have always been happy with it. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. The pool and hot tub were nice. They had a decent breakfast; not elaborate but with enough variety to please most people. They had the usual bagels and muffins and cereal with hot make your own waffles. They also had hard boiled eggs. I always appreciate when they have a protein available as many do not.

I travel to this area a couple of times a year and will probably stay here again.

We stay in this particular LaQuinta 3-4 times a year for the past 5 years or so while visiting Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. The staff remember us and make it feel like our home away from home...
