“Scared to Death!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Stay at your own risk! The hotel was very clean,very comfortable and the location was convienent. The staff were also very friendly. However,they Ofgave someone my room number!!
At 5:30 in the morning after checking in the previous night someone was banging on my door and I was not expecting anyone! This is dangerous! This is what you read about in the news! I was furious! After talking with the front desk personnel, if someon can answer a few questions and give the right answer they can access to your room.

Great hotel for the price. Excellent staff and everything was clean and first rate. The property was near shopping and eating places. Close to the airport and located to travel to many of the sites.

I usually stay at a LQ near the air port. During a visit to Tampa I tried 10 hotels and could not find any with a room for one night. I was told this location had 7 rooms open. I have now stopped staying at my original location and will now ONLY stay at this Tampa Central location. I have stayed a few times now and have enjoyed each stay. The facility is very new and has really nice rooms. My over all stay has been excellent and i would recommend this location to anyone. My two favorite girls are Belen and Elle. One of them has always been at the desk when I visit. They are two wonderful girls and will remember you the next time you come in. Thanks Belen and Elle for making my stay great!! See you the next time I visit. I travel a lot and only stay in LQ and this location by far has the best staff!!!

Truly, we did find a pizza box on top of the microwave oven that contained a couple of left over slices of pizza and chicken wing bones.... enough said!!! The shower was nerly the equivalent of standing under a leaking garden hose. Change or clean the mineral build up off your shower heads! Keep driving south on Dale Mabry - there is a Holiday Inn Express a mile or so down the road.
