The room (standard king) was large and very clean. They had a whirlpool spa and pool, which were clean and well kept. Rates were a little high, but they had a continental breakfast every morning, free wifi, and exercise room. Room had refrigerator and microwave and was close to restaurants and shopping. Would stay here again. Only complaint, we wanted...

Poor pest control; found roaches in the bathroom. Had to get the front desk person in order to check out. Breakfast Ok, but, nothing extraordinary. We stayed there because it was close to the Moffit cancer center were a family member had an appointment and we had a meeting the next day. Stayed only one night as we live in...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. After receiving your comments, I brought in my pest control agency to inspect the interior and exterior of the hotel for activity. They found no evidence of activity. As a precautionary measure, we have treated all of our rooms. If you wish to discuss this matter further, kindly contact me...

I spent the week at this La Quinta with a group of friends, while visiting Busch Gardens and the Tampa area. We enjoyed it very much! Here are the Pros and Cons... First the pros... Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Beds were comfy and I slept great. There is a special little lighted alcove with mirrors and a small...

I love staying with LaQuinta! In all the years that I've used them as my home away from home, I've only encountered ONE problem, and the staff took care of it quickly, efficiently, and were very nice the entire time. This location is great, especially if you are in Tampa for the parks or the nightlife, or even to check...

Nice quiet hotel conveniently located near USF and Busch Gardens. Nice complimentary breakfast. The breakfast available when we stayed there included boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, breads, and other items. I like to start my day with some protein and try to eat low carbs so this worked well for me. Professional and friendly staff who were helpful in providing directions.

I went on business and this place is OK. You won't be raving about it but it's OK. It has the potential to be very noisy because the walls are paper thin but it is OK as long as everyone cooperates. I could hear everything from all sides but by 11pm it was "lights out". In the morning, I purposely...

The room was nice and big. Breakfast was good, nothing fantastic. We were only there one night and it was pleasant enough. I did have to ask the front desk to have the kitchen staff replenish items on the buffet. They advertise as having all this fruit. However, there were only a few bananas that ran out very quickly.
