Grounds and staff were fine. Room was not clean. Seemed below average for a La Quinta. There are a few in the area that cost more and are likely better. There are a few close restaurants but the location feels almost rural. If you are going to the fairgrounds (I wasn't), this is an excellent location.
Price is too high for the quality of this hotel. If it is a 1 night stay, it is ok. If a lengthy stay, would recommend another hotel. Brightside Breakfast very Good. Good varity, has food a diabetic can eat. Not limited to pasteries and juice. Staff nice and friendly. Definitely Needs new carpet in halls. or a thorough professional cleaning.
I was in La Quinta Inn Hotel for two nights. It was a good experience, room was clean. Just a little bit cold because of air conditioner but it wasn't a big deal. Staff was friendly and ready to help if you needed them for any information or service. It is not a luxury hotel but you can be comfortable if you stay there.
Friendly and attentive staff, which is always a plus!
Great hotel for the price. Clean rooms. I forget to bring toothpaste and the front desk provided it, at no charge. Amazingly CLEAN The room and the bathroom were spotless.
Needs more breakfast options.
The best thing I can say, is I would absolutely stay there again !!!
Hotel is across the street from Florida State Fairgrounds, very short drive to Ybor City. Shopping and supermarkets also close by. Best of all, there's a Five Guys burger joint right next door, which is incredibly handy for a filling, low-priced lunch or dinner.
