"Could be cleaner, friendly staff"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 16, 2014

The staff was friendly. My bathroom was dirty which I did not report until check out (my fault) as we were barely there and too busy. I like the simple breakfast and coffee for a quick bite before we left for the day. The a/c is REALLY loud but constant which is better than shutting on and off all night. And it blocked out street noise since it is in a busy area. You really can't get closer to Busch Gardens if that is your plan. You can even walk from there instead of the $17 parking if you want (about a mile to the entrance, even though it is just across the street - there is a wall to walk around).

Booked 2 rooms {non-smoking} get to the hotel, the main lobby looks ok, but the area is very shady!! get to the first room and it reeks of weed and cigarette smoke, not clean at all, make my way to the second room, had to step over a pool of beer, get to the room and it smells even worse! Go back to the lobby and all they can say is they are sorry and cannot guarantee that any other rooms will not have the same issue. So had to go to another hotel and pay over $200 more so I can get a clean and non-smoking room!! Will never go back or recommend this hotel to anyone, not even my worse enemy!!!

"The worst I have ever stayed in"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 5, 2014
Lori H | The Villages, Florida
We always stay in LaQuinta. By far this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was extremely disappointed with the hotel, staff and especially the room. Rooms smelled like smoke, tub was dirty and mold around toliet. When I went to front desk they were rude and wanted to charge me for room change and extra if I wanted a frig or microwave. We stayed only for one night. Definately not worth any amount of money. The only plus.. Busch Gardens right across the street and we were able to see the fireworks

"Great for one night visiting Busch Gardens"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 3, 2014
tiaraflipflops | Rickmansworth, United Kingdom
I was a bit worried by some of the reviews, and the cheap price, but it was great! Really handy location, in fact we spotted it from our ride at the top of Sheikra while we were still in the park! Room was a good size, with really good aircon (altho a bit noisy). Beds were a bit old, and our light didn't work properly, and the tap was hard to work. Bathroom was a bit small and old. But the breakfast was amazing, and was included in our room rate. Loads to choose from, including hot waffles and syrup, coffee, OJ, toast, bagels, hardboiled eggs... a really good feast. What more could you want for a one night stay, then straight back to the rollercoasters! Hope that's helpful.

Close to Busch Gardens, Clean, friendly, good time for our family. Breakfast was adequate, more choices would be better. Close to everything we needed. It would be nice to have a refridgerator and an in room safe. Could see the fireworks every night from the pool.
