“Not so good”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We stayed here on a Sunday after a cruise before a flight home. The bed had dirty sheets and when I told the front desk they said the manager would take care of it. Awhile later a housekeeper came and handed me the sheets to make bed myself. The location was good, across from good shopping and eating but the staff and accommodations were not so good. I would choose another hotel next time.

The positive:

- Close to the airport and very easy access.
- Close to a lot of stores and restaurants
- Great price
- Friendly staff - Had wi-fi issues in first room and they switched me rooms closer to the office
- Bed was comfortable and there were adequate pillows
- The A/C worked adequately to cool the room

The negative:

- The wi-fi was a joke.Very spotty at best. I needed it for work and even after moving rooms, I went from getting no signal to a spotty to low one.
- Privacy - Closing the curtains still leaves a large gap. Now, the gap only lets someone see right by the door, but someone brilliantly decided to put a full-length mirror right there so someone passing by can practically see the entire room. I solved the issue by leaning the ironing board against it and the wall.
- The breakfast was all pre-wrapped and not very good. There is an IHOP next door which is worth paying for instead.

Not the worst hotel I have stayed at by far but next time I might pay more for better amenities. Again, the price was good and it is a great location. it just has some issues.

Room Tip: Something closer to the office

We stayed here after a late arrival at Tampa International Airport and was pleasantly surprised. The front desk clerk was friendly and offered us a room upgrade along with a late check out.

This is an older property but our room was nice with a very comfortable bed and clean bathroom.

Next door is a 24hr Ihop which was convenient for a late night meal but we thought it was expensive.

Overall the experience was average. The Rooms were clean and neat. The shuttle from the airport was not good. Information about shuttle service the next morning was not correct. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE.

We had a little trouble getting the shuttle to stop at Blue 2 but it did show up after several calls. The front desk was not very efficient - only one staff member was there! The room we stayed in was a pleasant surprise compared to previous visits.Breakfast was fine except the traditional La Quinta waffle machine was gone - it was replaced with a little packaged waffle that was a disappointment. Too sweet and not as much fun as cooking our own! We did have a good trip back to the airport so that was great. This motel is located very close to an upscale mall so our visit to the California Kitchen highlighted our stay at La Quinta.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor and at the back of the complex to avoid traffic noise

We choose this place to be close to the airport for an early departure the next day. We now stay here for late arrival and early departures. Good value at reasonable price. Clean and neat, friendly staff, perfect for last night before early flight home. IHOP in the parking lot is open 24Hrs.
