La Quinta Inn & Suites Tampa Central
Ranked #69 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

Very nice people, comfortable and quiet room. Comfortable bed, one of the lamps did not work and another was missing a light bulb.
Food provided in the morning eggs, sausage and waffles.

There are not many restaurants in the immediate are. If you drive North on Dale Maybry about 5 miles you will find plenty of good restaurants, including Bonefish Grill, Carrabas, Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza and many more.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled on business

This hotel is nice but our first room was filled with the smell of cigarette smoke. It was so bad that even our toddler exclaimed stinky! I would think the maid would have recognized this and reported it. It made me question how clean the rooms really are. The staff immediately moved us and apologized even giving our children cookies which was nice. However the next room also had issues. There was absolutely no ventilation in the room. After running the air conditioner for only a short time and taking one shower a musty wet smell gripped the room never to leave for our three day stay. The only way to reduce the smell was to open the hotel room door to let air in. There was no air circulation and you could see black/green mold starting to grown in the bathroom. This is the only reason I would not stay here again. If you fix this problem I would recommend this hotel. The pool was great and the breakfast was well done.

We arrived and the staff was on the ball working through adverse weather and a computer glitch but they checked us in and our granddaughter was able to get the required time at the pool to tire her out and peace and quiet was the order of the night. The breakfast was just right an all was well on the check out. I would recommend this hotel very highly.

My wife son and I stayed here for six nights and were very happy with our stay. The management and staff were very friendly. Room was very clean. Breakfast was more than needed. We would most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room was great.

First off, this hotel is in the straight up ghetto! Yes, there are alot of restaurants, etc nearby, but it's definitely in a sketchy part of town. We were visiting Busch Gardens, and the drive to/from made me uneasy! The staff is excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was average (if you like rubber eggs and fake sausage), but its free so no complaints. The rooms were just ok as far as being updated. The beds and pillows were amazing though!!! There was a micro and fridge which was nice. The tv was a joke, but we werent there to watch it anyway, so no biggie. Had I known all of this, I would've maybe spent a little extra and just got a room next to BG.

Room Tip: Dont stay here if youre planning to visit BG. Too far/too much traffic/too ghetto!

Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff great, rooms large and well appointed. Breakfast great with homemade waffles, continental style but with eggs and sausage as well. Close to Hard Rock Casino(8 mi away). Large common area and our room had a microwave and little refrigerator. Restaurants close bye and easy access.
