"We had a nice stay"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 19, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and we had a view of the pool and we were also really close to Busch Gardens. At night we could get to see fireworks across the way at the theme park which was very cool. We didn't have any problems and it was very close to restaurants and the mall was not too far from us. I would stay here again.

If your planning on going to Busch Gardens,you can't find a better location.pedestrian entrance is 1/2 mile away. Within blocks to max. 2 miles away from hotel you have shopping,restaurants,fast food restaurants,CVS,Publix,Hospital etc..,the room was clean the bed was comfortable and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. I would recommend it to all my friends and family!!!

The room is outside entry, which i dont like. However the room was pretty clean. The outside, not so much. The breakfast area was nice but not a lot of variety. It is close to busch gardens and USF plus there is lots of places to eat near by. Overall it was so-so.

"Great Place to stay when visiting Busch Gardens"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 6, 2014
Elizabeth R | Aurora, Colorado
My husband and I stayed at this LaQuinta because we were spending the next day at Busch Gardens. The rate we got on LQ.COM was fantastic and everything was good. Rooms are pretty basic but you get great value for what you pay for. Comfy clean beds and room. Lots of tv channels. The bathroom and sink area was perfectly cleaned. The pool looked fun but was pretty packed. Breakfast is also pretty basic. Cereal, waffles, fruit, yogurt, and a couple other things. Vending machines throughout and ice available as well. We will stay again when in the area. The only issue we had was they charged the card I made the reservation with instead of charging the credit card I gave them when checking in. But the issue was fixed. Great value for what we paid.

"Awful Stay"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 1, 2014
Jess F | Portland, Maine
We stayed at 2 different La Quinta Inns in Tampa and this one is so awful. I would recommend everyone to stay at the other La Quinta in Tampa. Our first room had to be switched because there were multiple cockroaches that we saw immediately upon entering the room. Getting the room switched was a little bit of a hassle but we finally got it taken care of. The next room just felt dirty. Thankfully we were only there for two nights for a wedding but we were all disgusted that the bride suggested this La Quinta for the guests to stay. The breakfast is a joke and shouldn't even be considered continental breakfast. More like a box of cereal and watered down milk. There are SOOO many other affordable options--do not stay here.
