La Quinta Inn & Suites USF (Near Busch Gardens)
Ranked #39 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed December 10, 2013

The rooms were clean and well equipped for our needs. Bedding was comfortable and front desk staff (overnight) was very helpful. We returned with small children after dark and there was a gentleman in distress in parking lot and after alerting front desk staff and security the situation was taken care of promptly and professionally. Being a supervisor in a tourist area resort I just wanted to say good job :)

Room Tip: ask for Bryce at front desk, he will make it right

After a long and tiring day at Busch Gardens it was great to have a hotel so close.. The room was great, spacious and clean.. Staff when we checked in we're very helpful. Great place for families. Would highly recommend.

Love La Quinta for their cleanliness and nice mid-range facilities. This La Quinta is no exception. They accept pets with no extra charges, and the cleanliness is right up there with the best in this price range. Rooms are very nicely decorated and appointed.

Had stayed at a competitor for visits to the Moffitt Cancer Center, but will be changing now to this hotel as it is nice and competitively priced.

Wonderful stay here! The room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. It is right across the street from USF and Busch Gardens and Museum of Science Industry ( MOSI ) is just down the street. The pool and spa area was nice. We went in the spa and it felt great. The breakfast was very good as well offering waffles, cereal, bagels, oatmeal, boiled eggs and more. I definitely recommend this hotel.

We decided to take 6 kids to the Busch Gardens Halloween night and stopped by this hotel to get 2 rooms at the last minute. It is extremely close to Busch Gardens, and since this event goes till 1 am, that was important to us. We were very impressed with this hotel; the desk employees were extremely friendly and very helpful and gave us great information on nearby restaurants and interesting places to see! The hotels were very clean and comfortable; the mattresses were very comfortable also. The large breakfast area was very nice with many places to sit, and we enjoyed all the many breakfast items, especially the healthy ones! We were very pleased with everything about this hotel, and will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends, and we will definitely stay here again for future Busch Garden events!!

Room Tip: Higher floors were very quiet.
