"bad management"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 20, 2014
A La Quinta traveler | 
I stayed at this hotel for one whole month while I was between living spaces. Therefore spending alot of money with this hotel. The entire staff was extremely friendly except for management. Management was very unfair and rude to me. They told me after being there for a month, that my method of payment was no longer allowed which forced me to switch hotels. Because the staff viewed me as a valued guest, they were letting me pay daily with cash after paying the fist two weeks,960$, on my card. After a month, I wanted to continue my stay bc I had a job interview coming up, but due to this change , I had to switch hotels. I was then RUSHED out by manager Pachina I believe was her name.she stopped by my room several times to rudely hurry me while I was packing my belongings into my car in the rain. This happened on very short notice and I had alot of belongings due to moving.The entire thing was a HUGE inconvenience. And I am very upset and dissatisfied. Also there were some sketchy people wandering around the parking lot.

Had a few days in Tampa area - this is well located if you want to head to the Gulf Coast beaches and St. Pete. Easy to get to downtown Tampa. Quiet, safe location near the airport. Airplane noise (not bad) starts around 6.00am. Not all rooms have refrigerators. Very clean and tidy rooms.

I was taking advantage of a room that supplied transportation to the airport and free parking that came with purchase of a room. Motel met all expectations. Rooms in good shape. Outside condition not so great.

"Location - Best Feature"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 15, 2014

I stayed three nights for a short last minute getaway. I called the front desk for a shuttle from the airport that was supposed to arrive in "10-15 minutes", but never came after 45 mins. The man at the front desk made sure he knew what stop I was waiting at, as I read it directly off the sign and he asked me the closest baggage claim numbers to the door, etc. I ended up taking a cab which cost me $15 for a 5 minute ride. Had there been a sidewalk from the airport I would have just as soon walked. I tried to call the front desk four times during my wait, but no one picked up the phone. There is a HART bus (30?) that goes from the airport past the hotel for $2, but I didn't know it at the time. The man who checked me in had other customers' paperwork all over the counter and took a minute to look up and acknowledge me standing there, but otherwise was polite. The room was on the ground floor, and in better condition than the bathroom. Look at posted pictures, because all the bathrooms in the pictures look identical to the one I had. Apparently all the bathrooms need renovation, because the tub looked like it had old bloodstains in it. The fixtures looked too old to even get clean, so I won't say anything against the cleaning staff. The curtains in the room left a 3-4 inch gap and the full length mirror is on the wall behind the front door, so at the right angle, you are totally visible, especially at night with the light on. This hotel is actually across the street from the airport runway, so you will get that level of noise late at night and early in the morning. International Plaza and Bay Street Mall is across the highway (Spruce Street is at least 6-8 lanes), and IHOP is next door, with an Enterprise Rental Car next door to IHOP. I ended up renting a car from them to go to the beach (about 30 min. drive), and to avoid another shuttle nightmare. WiFi worked great for me, and the surrounding area felt safe. I would return to this hotel if I was trying to save money on a layover or something (one night), but for a pleasure vacation, I would rent a car at the airport and drive to the Gulf coast and find a better hotel. I've stayed in much better La Quintas, so it's not the chain.

Recommended to some dear friends, what a huge mistake. They were totally unsatisfied with the establishment. Smelly rooms, service, and a lousy breakfast. Won't ever recommend this hotel to anyone. The only good thing was the location, near the Tampa Airport.
