After reading some reviews online, I was extremely reluctant to stay in any hotel in that Tampa area code. However, after a family member drove to the location and reported back that it looked clean and new. Upon arrival, I checked in without preregistration, and the young woman was very nice; "no problem at all", she said. She had a way of letting you know you were really welcome there, so I booked for three nights and loved my experience. I was a bit concerned about being on the first floor. However, I felt very safe, and my room was so nice. Staff was very courteous,(even when I left my room key in my car; she just made me another quickly. with a smile) breakfast buffet was freshly made and extremely good. Hot coffee and breakfast; area was very clean and well maintained. These folks here exemplified customer service. I have worked in customer service many years and it was so refreshing to see that there are people (companies) that work with a smile and exemplify true customer service (remembering the customer is always first). Hoo Ray to the manager that has chosen such a wonderful staff. This will be where I stay when I visit Tampa in the future.
LQ is everything you see in their TV commercials. They are for real. Nice property, inviting, friendly and professional. If I were to be petty, I still couldn't find much more than that I had to go up one floor to the ice machine. Realize that I'm not really complaining about that-I had no complaints. I reserved about 3 days in advance and some how got my room for $40 less than the going rate. High marks all around for once!
Beautiful buffet breakfast served in a gracious dining area. Odd yet delicious scrambled egg "pancakes" were yummy. Fresh waffles for those who can eat gluten. Sausages that proved gluten free, too! along side eggs in warmer tray. Yogurt, fresh bananas. fresh juices and excellent coffee completely satisfied us until lunchtime. Staff kept everything clean and stocked up.
First of all I am still on vacation in my hotel room while I am typing this so this lets you know how upset I am about my stay. There was false advertisement on their website when I booked the room it said that there was an outdoor and indoor pool, that is not true they only have an outdoor pool the breakfast is awful and no one on the cleaning staff speaks English. My room was improperly cleaned the beds were not made everyday and one of the maids complained that I asked for four wash clothes everyday if there are four guest in my room what am I to do with two face cloths and I called myself being courteous by putting all the dirty towels in one big pile for them to just pick up and take them to clean them and one of the maids accused me of taking the towels what do I need a bunch of white towels for? To put the icing on the cake I left some change on my dresser and it was missing the next day I just called the front desk and told her all of this her respond was I'm sorry I've worked in customer service for over 15 years and how you show a patron your sorry is to offer them something to let them know you have heard their concerns and you will take care of them!
Paid $122 for Saturday night, then $113 for Sunday and Monday night.
Front desk person working at night is not very accommodating. When I informed her that I needed more towels, she told me that she's working alone and I will have to come down to pick them up myself. This is no problem but her attitude of not being apologetic for lack of help is inexcusable. Is La Quinta hiring people without hospitality degree/experience? She appeared like she is just there because she needs a job. No attempt to please customers at all. On our first day, housekeeping walked in as we were leaving. They took all the towels but never replaced them. They did not empty the trash, did not make beds, did not replenish toilet paper.The bifold door to the closet was falling out of track but was not fixed What did they do in our room?
We came in late that night and I had to do all of those myself. If I am spending $122/night, I better be getting these basic services. Very annoying!
They are proud to advertise flat screen tv but the channels they provide are not high def so what's the use.
Hotel has mediocre insulation- can hear neighbors and cars.
Beds are sagging, not the most comfortable.
There are only 2 icemakers for the entire hotel and the 3rd floor unit was broken.
