"Good value and clean, but..."
Reviewed Mar 9, 2014

This hotel could have received 4 stars. It's a good value, very close to USF campus. The room and the bathroom were spotless. The room was good sized and so was the closet, although I would have liked blankets in the closet (I ended up using the blanket from the unused second bed). Breakfast is not memorable, but it will do.
What knocked it down to 2 stars is the fact that, during my second night, a bunch of kids started making a terrible noise. There was yelling, loud laughing, and plenty of door slamming. I called the front desk and was assured that they'd immediately send someone to make them stop. The noise continued for more than one hour after that. The next morning, in a room full of bleary-eyed teens having breakfast, one of my colleagues informed me that he too had called the front desk to complain, uselessly. I do not blame La Quinta for rude teenagers and their sorry excuse for a chaperon. But I do blame them for not putting their foot down and making them stop. So, buyer beware: if you are unlucky enough to be near some rude, inconsiderate bunch, staff will do nothing about it.
To be clear, when not invaded by poorly chaperoned teens, the hotel is very quiet.
Stayed 3 days in early March, 2014. Room does have some minimal early morning street noise. High definition Samsung TV with about 30 channels including NFL Network, Fox News, CNN and CNBC along with a couple of Showtime channels. Breakfast is available 6-9 am on weekdays and 7-10 on weekends. It is fairly robust for a continental breakfast including a make-your-own waffle machine, toast, muffins, bagels, tea, coffee, orange & apple joice along with 3 cold cereal options. Hot water is immediate and the room was nicely cleaned each day. Solid value for the money in the 80-90 range. It's also very conveniently located for USF, Busch Gardens and MOSI.
My husband and I stayed at this motel last when we returned from a cruse in February. The motel was extremely clean, the location is convenient to airport, and the staff helpful. More staff is needed for check in. One employee can not handle this very well.
Visited Tampa, Clearwater beach, and Busch Gardens. Stayed here, very satisfied with it, especially for the price. $100/night in tourist area for a clean room, comfy bed, decent breakfast, large flat screen tv, mini fridge, nice jacuzzi and pool area. Quiet and enjoyable.
Rooms were beautiful. Bathroom was spacious. Many extras like room service. Outside area (gazebo and tables for breakfast in the garden) were beautiful. Pool was the perfect temperature. 2 elevators available for upper floors, never had to wait for an elevator. Very secure. Access to all areas by card reader only. Staff was excellent.
