“What a gem!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

We come to Tampa every couple of months and always stay at this La Quinta in South Tampa. Our trip is usually a week. We have always found that the owner, and the person that checks you in (Mr. Keyur) have always been friendly, and cater to all our needs. Even the lady who handles the breakfast makes sure our breakfast experience is a cheery and pleasant one. We will continue to stay at this hotel because it feels like home!!

Went here after reading all the positive reviews, guess I went on an off-night! Either that or these posts got put under the wrong hotel. Check-in was very casual and almost lackadaisical. I asked if I could pay for my room with gifts cards and got an “of course.” So I get my room and go straight up. As soon as I walked in I looked right, to the bathroom and saw the toilet seat swung off the top of the toilet on a 45 degree angle!?!?!? How do you clean a room and not see the seat is totally broken? So I had to go back down and get another room. The rooms are ok and my bed was very “springy” and the pillows are fat and don’t collapse at all. Not good if you have neck issues. The breakfast is fair (we all have our own tastes) and I don’t expect to have to heat up my own (powdered) eggs. I stayed two nights and the second day the cap to the bathtub plunger was unscrewed and laying in the tub. Again, do the housekeepers even see what’s going on in these rooms?? So now it’s check out and when I presented my gifts card Kuyer says he can’t accept them because they don’t have my name on them?!?! Gift cards don’t have names! He wouldn’t hear it and refused to accept them. Also, be prepared to pay for the in-room safe whether you use it or not. There are too many other “nice” places in Tampa to spend your time to money here.

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel.

Decent price, and dog friendly were our main criteria for our stay in the Tampa area. This hotel fit the bill. Clean, excellent customer service. Only draw back is the breakfast was not very good. Only had one type of eggs (precooked with cheese inside) so no option for non-cheese eaters. Each morning they had either bacon or sausage but on Sunday they ran out early and it was not replenished in the 30 minutes we were at breakfast. Would have preferred more options for breakfast.

I had a great experience at this La Quinta. There are a lot of nice fluffy pillows on the bed and I slept like a rock. Very friendly staff and clean hotel overall.

This was my second time here for business and I will choose this hotel again the next time I have to stay in the area.

Highly recommend!

Stayed two nights - front desk, manager Jay, went out of his way to be helpful as did room staff and maintenance. Room was very clean as was the whole of the building which was also well signed and easy to find everything needed. Breakfast was very good and offered far more than would be expected. This La Quinta was in a great location and provided a great base from which to visit many places in Tampa.
Only negative was the layout of the handicapped room - everything was there - for it was somewhat cramped and the layout awkward. The bathroom however was more than adequate - much bigger than usual and well placed grab bars. Definitely would happily stay there again.
Another well-satisfied TripAdvisor Member.
