Good for business or travel

This hotel is good if you're traveling on the highway and need some rest for the night or here on business for a day or two. It's not too expensive and it's in a very convenient location, right off I-75. Bob Evans is right next door which is good food fairly cheap, $20-$25 for two people. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, and they offer a free breakfast from 6am to 9am.

So so

It was a last minute reservation and I didn't research the site thoroughly. The room smelled of cigarette and the bathtub had some hair in it. Jumped in the small pool near the parking lot so our view was of parked trucks, not appealing but whatever. After a long busy day came back to hotel to a quiet sleep thankfully, as I thought we would hear sirens as we did throughout the day since the hotel is at the corner of a major intersection/highway. Didn't do breakfast because we got up too late at 8:45 and breakfast ends at 9:00 a.m. I would not choose this location again, different La Quinta maybe but just not this location, too noisy for me.

Fri. Sat. Sun.

It was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was superb. The property is old and shows it especially in the hallways. The swimming pool is in the front right next to Highway 60, not real comfortable. But for the price it is OK.

Good Enough

We just needed a "home base" for our vacation in the Tampa area. This La Quinta served well in that role. It's certainly not a resort. It's more like a Motel 6. I don't think it even had a pool. The staff was extremely friendly, the room was adequate, the King bed was great. There was a microwave and mini-fridge and ironing board/ iron. The free breakfast every morning was scarce but better than nothing. Waffles, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, bagels, yogurt, and toast. Only about 10 minutes from Ybor City and the aquarium. Maybe 45 minutes to Anna Maria Island. 45-60 minutes to Madeira Beach. If you plan on going to the beach every day you might want to be farther west. Overall, worth the price.

last minute value and comfort

I waited to the last minute to find a hotel close to the Fairgrounds and when I did try to find a hotel there were no rooms available at the closest hotels or their rates were higher than I wanted to pay for one night. We then found this hotel that had what we needed for amenities at a reasonable rate for the area. It was a short easy drive from the Fairgrounds It was clean and comfortable and we always enjoy the free breakfast bar. The only draw back was they were out of non-smoking rooms with king beds and we had to take a smoking room if we wanted to still have a king...which we did. The people that make last minute reservations can't always get what they request...regarding this point. Otherwise - all was good.
