This hotel is older and needs to be updated desperately, but the staff is very pleasant. We did not spend much time in the room, but this La Quinta felt much safer than the one located directly in the vicinity of Busch Gardens and there was food delivery up to 2:00 am.

Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. We stayed there for a horse show at the Fairgrounds which took about 5 minutes to get to. Kids loved the pool and stayed in for hours. Breakfast was free and set up early enough we could eat before leaving each morning. There was a good assortment of...

When arriving almost at midnight there was still a room available for me. The front desk manager came to the back door when I parked to make sure I was safe and able to open the door.

This hotel was in a great place for the first visit to Tampa, and we were able to see some great places during this visit. The hotel staff was very helpful and out room was great. Of course I like the breakfast to get me going in the morning

Received a smoking room for some reason. Did not like that. I did not realize it until we got back late at night, which was too late to change rooms. So I did not complain. We have stayed at this hotel many times before with no problems. Great location to the Hard Rock casino and Ybor City.

The room was nice, but reminded me of a 60's hotel that needs a face lift. the Bathroom was small and not really suited for an adult. If you were a kid it might work well. The bath was in shower only mode, even though it was a tub.

Horrible experience at this stay. There was cigarette smoke and scent all over the rooms and hallways. There was roaches all over the bathroom, I reported it to the front desk and they did nothing about it nor even offered me another room. The parking spaces were horrible, there were nothing but semi trucks. I had to park across the...

Thanks for the review. We are currently working on improving our existing product, but ultimately we will be renovating in April of 2017. We will see that our maintenance team takes evasive action to remediate the pests control in the room. Our staff is aware of your feedback, and we will correct the problems you found. Thank you for your...

The hospitality made up for the issues with the room. The order in the room was really bad, from time to time hotels need to do a major over haul of rooms. Their were roaches climbing the wall. I would stay again do to the staff, it was a great experience overall.

Traveling to Tampa twice a month for the past five years I've been staying at the comfort inn however lately it's been very dirty. I tried Laquinta which is next-door and found it to be a bit better. The first room made my nose stuffy (mildew?), the second room was satisfactory. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and...
