clean, comfortable beds
left car at hotel and walked to park
refrig & microwave in room
best rates in the area
quiet if you get the rooms in the back, it is considered the second floor but you can park directly in front of your room.
the FREE breakfast has waffles that you can make, takes 5 minutes.
I liked the coffee.
This is my second stay at the same location and I have to say I am satisfied. The check-in process was quick and easy, as well as check-out. I left a little before check-out and the gentleman at the front desk pulled out muffins for me to take for my family before I left. It was a free stay for my pet which was convenient, with a nice variety of breakfast. The bedroom and bathroom were extremely clean. The bed and pillows were extra comfy. I do recommend this hotel for families and pets. I do plan on staying at this same hotel when I travel back to Tampa. What made it an even more comfortable stay was the fact that the staff were very nice. ;)
After a long and tiring day at Busch Gardens it was great to have a hotel so close.. The room was great, spacious and clean.. Staff when we checked in we're very helpful. Great place for families. Would highly recommend.
Love La Quinta for their cleanliness and nice mid-range facilities. This La Quinta is no exception. They accept pets with no extra charges, and the cleanliness is right up there with the best in this price range. Rooms are very nicely decorated and appointed.
Had stayed at a competitor for visits to the Moffitt Cancer Center, but will be changing now to this hotel as it is nice and competitively priced.
"Great stay close to Busch Gardens and across from USF"

Wonderful stay here! The room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. It is right across the street from USF and Busch Gardens and Museum of Science Industry ( MOSI ) is just down the street. The pool and spa area was nice. We went in the spa and it felt great. The breakfast was very good as well offering waffles, cereal, bagels, oatmeal, boiled eggs and more. I definitely recommend this hotel.
