My mother had surgery at Moffitt Cancer Center and La Quinta was great. The staff treated us very well and the price was great. It was nice to be able to have a room that was clean and quiet. La Quinta allowed me to keep my mothers car in the parking lot until she was discharged from the hospital. thank you La Quitnta for a great stay.

"My experience at La Quinta Inn & Suites"

I felt quite comfortable and at home during my 3 weeks stay at La Quinta Inn & Suites near Busch Gardens; the facilities and services were very suitable for my needs. for example, 24-hour WiFi internet, good breakfast, large number of parking lots, computer printing services, gym, swimming pool, etc. Furthermore, I liked its proximity to the University of South Florida as well as courtesy of staff. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who likes comfort away from home, and particularly parents of USF students.

Efficient staff, very clean and well appointed common areas. Rooms are large and have an upscale feel. Pet friendly but there is never any "evidence" that pets are in the hotel..... a "bark" here a "woof" there, never a problem. This is my second stay here.

This is a very clean, attractive hotel in close proximity to USF, Bush Gardens, Moffitt and Shriners hospitals. Rates are reasonable and there are many amenities. The bed was plush, pool and spa well maintained, breakfast included, weight room and Wi-Fi connections, plus it is pet friendly. It is close to I-75 and easy to find.
