We would highly recommend this hotel. Great management, clean rooms and friendly staff. The manager, Mr. Patel, was very friendly and helpful. The front desk lady, Brandy was also very courteous and professional. Overall, it was a very good experience.
Have stayed here 2-3 times a year since it's opening and stays have been very positive. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was more then sufficient. Mr. Patel always welcomes us back. Pool area is great.
My husband and I stayed here overnight after a mud run training session at Nature's Boot Camp in Tampa. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice with the exception of some stains on the carpet and some mildew in the leaky shower. The breakfast was great and well maintained.
The only thing that really bothered my was the smell of what I assume was some sort of cleaner they used in the elevator. The smell was an overwhelming citrus scent that irritated my throat, so we decided to take the stairs for the remainder of our stay.
The pool looked very clean and if I wasn't completely wiped out from my training session, I would have spent the majority of visit there.
Overall, it was a decent, affordable hotel.
I stayed at La Quinta Inn & Suites Tampa Central, Florida 8/28 and was scheduled to stay a second night 08/30. I met with the GM Mr. Gaurang Patel. Nice man, extremely courteous person who actually knew of a gal I knew called Ghira Patel. Well, I proceeded to check in and he asked for my Visa card I booked the room with and was told it would not go through. (Purchaed food at Zaxby's directly across so this was surprising. Even more surprising was that I was asked to secure the second day with a $100.00 cash deposit for 8/29. So I paid cash for the 8/28 date and paid $100.00 that I got back the morning of 08/29 for the following reason. This location was seemingly in a a war zone. This location is at bad side of town off of Hillsborough and Dale Mabry. The carpets smellled bad like damp cleaned with no cleaner. The room had two facila soaps and no bath soap.... only a bath gel that was 1/2 full. Mr. Patel was great and I let him know of the carpet stains left previously when I came into the room. The bed was comfortable the bathroom clean. The Spa which was the highlight was spot on perfect... though the panels surrounding the whirlpool were hanging and looked like they were falling apart. Breakfact was ok, in the the sausages were cold and there was little fruit assortment (Bananas only). This location is a -B... Patel is great though! I have been in the Service Arena for 35 years. Patel is the only reason I would ever go back, but likely will not return to this location unless I was incentified to do so.
The staff was very helpful and nice. The hotel and room was clean. The price was good and I enjoyed our stay very much. I would return to the hotel when in the neighborhood. The chicken fingers at Zaxbys next door were very good!
