I chose this location because of its proximity to my family. However, cleanliness was not a priority in the room that I occupied. The toilet, light fixtures, bathroom door, and TV all had stains. There were a couple of roaches; one was found on the bathroom wall, the second was found on the wall behind the TV. The flushing of...

Stayed at this LaQuinta on recommendation of friends. We were headed to the Hard Rock and the hotel was close but not too close. Nice neighborhood, great room. As I am handicapped some hotels do not offer the bathrooms and showers that are so easy to use. We had a great getaway.

I just got back home from a 3 night stay at this La Quinta Inn. Not my first time with this chain, but was my first time at this property. Everything was great. Clean, comfortable room, of course. But when I needed an umbrella, they loaned me one. When I showed up for breakfast late, even though the staff was...

We have been staying at this property for the last year while my husband under goes cancer treatments at Moffitt Cancer Center. The staff, particularly Kitty Hatcher, has been extremely helpful, gracious and competent during the past year. They have consistently provided us with exceptional service no matter the request. I can't begin to tell you how much their efforts...

This hotel is located in an area where there are many restaurants. If the limited breakfast doesn't work for you, there are other options. Close to Lowry Zoo which is why we came down from Ocala. Tv programs are disappointingly limited also.

This is the nicest La Quinta we have ever stayed at. The staff was pleasant and professional. Breakfast was fair. Room was large and beds were comfortable. No outside noise from the hall or the pool area. We have booked there again.

Two girlfriends and I spent two nights. The beds are actually full size not queens so it was a cozy stay. We requested a roll away bed but it was so lumpy it hurt. We tried putting the roll away mattress on the floor but it was still awful. The room was clean enough - not gross but not spotless/new....

Everything about the hotel was excellent. The only problem I had was the handle on the water in the tub had been turned off so tight I could not turn it on. My son was in next room so he finally managed to loosen it enough to use.
