We have stayed in this hotel many times. Everything was good with the exception of mildew/mold on the shower curtain and dirty carpet in our room. It seems the management may not be as concerned with the state of the rooms as in the past. The public areas were clean, the breakfast was good and well stocked. The check in and check out were flawless. The manager even gave us some toiletry samples when we checked out. I think housekeeping needs closer supervision to make sure the rooms are as clean as possible.

"sleepless at la quinta central tampa"

The manager Mr Patel does not feel that being woken at 3am and inconvenienced to move rooms with 2 kids under 6 warrants any type of refund, so beware as sympathies did not lie with me and my sleepless night after a four hour journey was hellish! Oh and his reasoning is that because I was still in a hotel room, overnight, I should be charged for the room. The night staff had been their a week and was out of her depths, so I would recommend citi bank terminate their not so much of an easy deal relationship with this group.

Very nice place to stay - comfortable, very care taking Helpful with late plane arrivals, travel to airport, food close by, one of our favorite locations in northeast. Staff is always helpful - from late arrivals to finding something reasonable to eat at midnight.
