For our 4 week holiday in Florida, we planned to spend one and a half days in Tampa to take our two teens to Busch Gardens. This 'hotel',(if it can be called so) is just opposite the park, and this was the reason why we decided to book it. The room was in a bad state. There was a hole...

This is a great location and 5 minutes from Busch Gardens, they have a friendly staff and easy check in and check out. Great price and not in a bad area, the hotel is clean and the rooms look very nice. The staff is very kind and knows just about everything about this hotel

This La Quinta Inn was a great value. Easy access to the park. The front desk called to make sure everything was great. Obviously not a 5-star hotel but definitely 5 stars on TA considering access to the park, clean room, clean sheets, quiet environment(hard to believe considering the roller coasters right across the street), kind guest relations and parking...

Ambivalent front desk personnel, no acknowledgement of military service, no "welcome-back"' sentiments, no complimentary daily newspaper nor 24-hour coffee, very limited breakfast choices, no acknowledgement from staff as we passed by them. Old, rickety elevators, no working room telephone, and generally poor condition of general property. This property does not deserve to be in the La Quinta family. Large and...

We arrived and was given a poor welcome. As if the person didn't even want to be there. And gave us a hard time on who's name was on the reservation. Took over an hour to check in. When we finally got to our rooms. The hallway 's and stairway were dirty with cobwebs and smelled of pee. In our...

This hotel had what we needed - good location, a comfortable bed, a good shower, laundry facilities after 8 days on the road and a bathwater-warm pool. We woul use it again if we are in the Tampa area around USF.

Very good service, friendly personnel, minor issue with bathroom resolved right away, excellent location, no complain of any kind. Just to recommend if the breakfast could include some doughnuts and cup cakes, in addition to items offered. Our room was very clean and the daily service perfect.

The experience was on the average quite good even though we stayed only one night. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, the facility is due for a facelift and maintenance. Doors and ventilation equipment are delipidating and require replacements. However, the rooms are splendid and very well cleaned. Quality and service of meals are very good.

Stayed overnight and this place was really nice. Staff was very helpful, Wifi easy to access, room was clean and modern looking and the free breakfast is always nice. Next time I go to Busch Gardens we're definitely staying at this hotel, it's about five minutes away!
