Area where "motel" is located is kind of scary. Premises is completely gated with chain link. Rooms smell either like smoke or wet dog. YUCK. Staff is friendly and room seems to be clean. Really tired hotel. Entrance door to hotel room has a half inch gap at bottom of door and you can hear everything outside. Also a lot of the people I have seen stay here are a little questionable. If you are used to staying in 3 star hotels DO NOT stay here.
We were here one night for the Gasparilla races. We arrived about 8:00pm, by 5:00am we were out the door. And that was a rather long 9 hours. We were greeted by the smell of mold and mildew. Then we discovered the extra tenant in our room...a dead roach in the bathroom. And to really make us feel cozy, we discovered tiny black flecks on the mattress and linens upon inspecting them....apparently we weren't sleeping alone. Well, come to think about it, we never slept at all....could never get comfortable. Never showered either....we just didn't feel....clean there. The area is also not so stellar. So do youself a favor, repent for your travel sins, and find a more heavenly place to stay!
Very comfortable, clean, nice complete breakfast. Great for after-Busch gardens!!! The reservation was easy, people very very nice. The room was really beautiful and free internet is a plus. We liked a lot.
Upon arrival we of course go into the lobby...backed up out the door! One girl working. Okay...we had reservations, I am a La Quinta Inn member, but the line and wait was unacceptable. Finally get our room, it is way out around the back on the building and was told we could park there. She should have added if we could find a parking space. There were office chairs and people sitting out around making us feel very uncomfortable. The room is okay, but the bathroom is a horror show. Very very small, there was pubic hair in the tub and the shower floor is very slippery, I would hate to ask why. The water is either scalding you or freezing you...and the option is not your, it goes back and forth. No, I would not recommend this place nor would I stay again! Oh, no coffee and very few towels.
My family and I will return to La Quinta Hotel it was a very nice experience, closed to Bush Garden and others point of interest, near fast food restaurants and good restaurant chains, I consider a family friendly environment, I will recommend the hotel facilities to my family and friends
