"Nice end to a busy day at the Air Show"

Booked this hotel since it is located so close to MacDill AFB.....was not disappointed....got the special weekend $79 rate and saved quite a lot compared to my original reservation made several months earlier with no problem. Parking in the early evening when we arrived was fine but when we returned after dinner, it was awful. Two parking spots were open but much too small for a mid size car thanks to neighboring cars parking over the lines...finally around the side, we thankfully found the last spot. Room was neat, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate.. what can you expect when it was essentially FREE? But Linda, who managed the breakfast area, was amazing! She kept things well stocked and clean. Chatted with the guests and obviously took great pride in doing an excellent job. Based on this stay, I will seek out LaQuinta in the future

"What a gem!!!!"

We come to Tampa every couple of months and always stay at this La Quinta in South Tampa. Our trip is usually a week. We have always found that the owner, and the person that checks you in (Mr. Keyur) have always been friendly, and cater to all our needs. Even the lady who handles the breakfast makes sure our breakfast experience is a cheery and pleasant one. We will continue to stay at this hotel because it feels like home!!

Went here after reading all the positive reviews, guess I went on an off-night! Either that or these posts got put under the wrong hotel. Check-in was very casual and almost lackadaisical. I asked if I could pay for my room with gifts cards and got an ?of course.? So I get my room and go straight up. As soon as I walked in I looked right, to the bathroom and saw the toilet seat swung off the top of the toilet on a 45 degree angle!?!?!? How do you clean a room and not see the seat is totally broken? So I had to go back down and get another room. The rooms are ok and my bed was very ?springy? and the pillows are fat and don?t collapse at all. Not good if you have neck issues. The breakfast is fair (we all have our own tastes) and I don?t expect to have to heat up my own (powdered) eggs. I stayed two nights and the second day the cap to the bathtub plunger was unscrewed and laying in the tub. Again, do the housekeepers even see what?s going on in these rooms?? So now it?s check out and when I presented my gifts card Kuyer says he can?t accept them because they don?t have my name on them?!?! Gift cards don?t have names! He wouldn?t hear it and refused to accept them. Also, be prepared to pay for the in-room safe whether you use it or not. There are too many other ?nice? places in Tampa to spend your time to money here.

"Good price, dog friendly, but breakfast was only okay"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jan 22, 2014
Katie B | Raleigh, North Carolina
Decent price, and dog friendly were our main criteria for our stay in the Tampa area. This hotel fit the bill. Clean, excellent customer service. Only draw back is the breakfast was not very good. Only had one type of eggs (precooked with cheese inside) so no option for non-cheese eaters. Each morning they had either bacon or sausage but on Sunday they ran out early and it was not replenished in the 30 minutes we were at breakfast. Would have preferred more options for breakfast.
