Gorgeous lobby, convenient location. Rooms nice, but NO closets! You get a small rack in the middle of your room! We only got ONE trash can too. Someone had left food in the fridge before our stay too. Also, we had to go find our own replacement toilet paper. Other than that, not a bad stay.

Very thin walls. Our "suite" was the room immediately across from the check in desk, next to the parking lot and we heard staff and guests talking all night long. The bathroom door did not open all the way because the room was somewhat remodeled and the tile was too high for the door to open/close properly. The bathroom sink...

For this price point, this La Quinta is a great value. Busch Gardens is across the street (lots of amusement park noise) and Lowry Park Zoo is nearby. The furniture may not match and is a bit outdated, but the staff are on top of things, the rooms pool and public areas are clean, stores and food service for dine...

Lots of young kids hanging out in the lobby. Can hear EVERYTHING that goes on outside your room. Nothing fancy. Breakfast is nothing to wrote home about. Bright side, Front desk staff was nice and helpful.

Room was in disrepair. Outlets coming out of wall and room had an odor of wet dog. Area around hotel was sketchy at best. No coffee in lobby early in morning. Floors in room was stained and there were holes in the sheets.

our room was very clean and attractive...totally enjoyed our stay in Tampa. Breakfast was very tasty... the lady in charge of the breakfast items was very efficient, friendly and clean. She cleaned off the tables quickly and was even engaging in conversations with guests.

This was not a LaQuinta property; This was another hotel which Laquinta purchased and put their name on. Look at the one down the street which was a Laquinta property, and had the quality you would expect from Laquinta.

This place is old and run down. Has a dirty feel to it, although everything seemed to be clean. Never been to a hotel where there was a security guard on duty, but there was one here.Look elsewhere. Not the best area to stay in.

We booked this through a third party site. On neither site was it stated that you had to put up a $75 deposit. So when we got there and found out I offered to pay it in cash as I knew it was not in my bank account. They do not take cash. It took me 4 hrs to get...
