First off, this hotel is in the straight up ghetto! Yes, there are alot of restaurants, etc nearby, but it's definitely in a sketchy part of town. We were visiting Busch Gardens, and the drive to/from made me uneasy! The staff is excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was average (if you like rubber eggs and fake sausage), but its free so no complaints. The rooms were just ok as far as being updated. The beds and pillows were amazing though!!! There was a micro and fridge which was nice. The tv was a joke, but we werent there to watch it anyway, so no biggie. Had I known all of this, I would've maybe spent a little extra and just got a room next to BG.
Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff great, rooms large and well appointed. Breakfast great with homemade waffles, continental style but with eggs and sausage as well. Close to Hard Rock Casino(8 mi away). Large common area and our room had a microwave and little refrigerator. Restaurants close bye and easy access.
I don't know if it was the quiet room and location, the good, light-blocked drapes or the comfortable bed with nice pillows, but I had the best rest here that I can ever remember having a hotel room.
Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel, but here's where this place stood out. It was crowded, so my wife and I stood up to eat. The manager came right over and asked if he could open the meeting room for us.
We also had a problem with our coffeemaker, and it was addressed efficiently and in a friendly manner.
We go to Tampa often in March and April to attend Bay Area Renaissance Festival, and this is about 15 minutes away. You can find closer hotels, but you will not find a better one or a better value.
Hello I was at laquinta last month an I must say your front desk clerk is awesome her name began wit a j I believe she said jenny I had an issue with my tv an she did not hesitate to come up stairs an fix it stayed about 15 minutes until she figured out how to make it work also while I was checking in she was very pleasant an had a smile the whole time very friendly an was very helpful I was a little upset before I got to the hotel but once I spoke with her she made my day a lot better. Thanks to your staff I will most deff be staying at this location everytime I am in town. Good job tampa central you guys rock!!
Spent the night there after finding this gem on Price Line. We had a great time here and although everything wasn't perfect we slept like logs. Our room could have used a little more elbow grease as far as the cleaning, but it wasn't anything that would scare you. The hair dryer died after about 3 min of working, but all in all it wasn't to bad of a place.
