Great place to stay near Busch Gardens, 20 min walk to main ticket gates. Many restaurants to choose from within driving distance. Hotel staff very friendly. Smooth check in process. Comfy accommodations.

The staff and hotel was very nice.. It was great that would could bring our dog with us. Yes would stay there again. It was also nice that we got the suite so that way you did not feel like you were just in a stuck in a room.

Great location for things to do and many nearby restaurants to choose from. Great place to go if you have a dog. Also, close to a nearby Shopping Mall. Had no problems with the internet connections, Some rooms have a beautiful view of nature preserve.

We had special requests that were accomplished with this hotel: pet friendly and in walking distance (20min) from Busch Gardens. Apart from that, not much to praise: breakfast was only ok, reception was unfriendly and the room smelled funny. But it was in a good price ($89/night).

Do not stay here -- it is filthy and a very poor example of the La Quinta brand. It is an old facility that should be torn down and replaced by a new building. The bed covers had probably not been cleaned in years. There was a caked dirt all around the bottom of the bed covers. My wife refused...

This hotel is clean and the staff was pleasant and helpful. If you can get a good rate and the location is good for you, then this is a good place to stay. Unfortunately, due to a lost reservation at another La Quinta hotel, we ended up here at full price. The beds and breakfast are just ok.

9202 North 30th Street is disgusting. Not worth $50 a night. Especially not worth the $122.08 we paid for one night. Being next to Busch Gardens should not allow this company to charge so much for their run down hotel. This place needs a complete renovation. The only good thing is the towels were clean and even though I seriously...

We stayed a night here before my mom had surgery at Florida Hospital of Tampa, and used our AAA discount to get a rate of $85. Our room was extremely clean, spacious, the front desk was able to recommend a number of places to eat, and was very helpful. We sat out by the very large and nice pool area,...

I got a good rate here on TripAdvisor and wanted a hotel close to Busch Gardens. This hotel appeared to have the best rating of the hotels right near Busch Gardens so it made sense to book this room. I was traveling with just myself and my son. We book a room with two double beds. We arrived on Friday...
