La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham USF (Near Busch Gardens)

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was clean and across the street from USF. Breakfast could have more options

Tiny little ants crawling all over the dresser and desk. We did not notice them until morning. The place is old, but it’s ok if you have reasonable expectations.

Room was very clean and nice and cool when we walked in!! The beds are amazingly comfortable and pet friendly always a plus for us. However, the shower/tub needs some work, there was only 1 packet of cream/sugar and the cups could be a little more generous. The staff was friendly and VERY accommodating. Definitely a come back hotel for our trips to Tampa.

Hotel did what we needed it for, breakfast wasn't much. Waffles, fruit n cereal. Front desk staff wasnt too friendly n always had to wait for them

Warning, housekeeping will wake you up at 9:30am if you do not put up a "do not disturb" on the door. We arrived late and we were too tired to even think about it. Why would they even knock on our door, when we are checking out at 12pm? Breakfast is served from 6-9pm. Most

Good location but the room was dirty. Carpet was stained, mold on the bathroom vent and found some hair on the bathroom floor. The shower stall was not wiped clean.

Nice hotel but would had preferred room with a refrigerator.

Room was clean but hotel could do with a refreshing...quite aged.

Great location to my consulting assignment great eateries in the area, and FedEx was close for l.j ast minute business changes.

Nice amount of parking. Close to a lot of shopping and restaurants.

Nice hotel. Great staff and amenities. Would recommend and stay again.

Later we hear dogs barking coming from one of the room. That was probably the uncomfortable snell.

When we came to the hotel we were surprised that the bed is small (double), pillows are not comfortable and there is no mini fridge in the room. We've been to Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn and Hilton Hotels and all of our stays were with two queen size beds and included with mini fridge. So it is a big letdown to miss those items. On the plus size, the room and the bathroom are clean. Another thing that surprised us is the breakfast. There is no bacon or even sausage available. We gave this rating based on our experiences with other hotels that is why we can not help but compare. The price is only $20 cheaper, so had we known the difference, we could've have stayed with Hampton Inn or the other two.

First impression was ok, check-in was smooth. Room however was another story. Cracked tiles in bathroom, hair on the bathroom floor and a substance left on toilet seat. My son was bitten by something when he laid on the bed, my initial check didn't find anything but I later found a dead flea stuck in the side of the mattress and another one living in the bathroom. Not an experience I'd want to repeat.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 days due to it's close proximity to USF which was across the street. Let me first say that the reception staff was wonderful and very accommodating. The breakfast was just your basic continental breakfast. The hotel room itself was rated a 2-3 due to uncomfortable beds, uncleanliness of bathroom and the fact that they only clean the room, and change the towels every other day if you're staying more than one night! Also, we had a problem on the first night with a bunch of college kids that decided they were going to use the room next to us as a frat house. Security did come, but I was not going to spend the night next to this group and asked to be moved. The hotel reception staff was very accommodating and moved us to another floor. I'm not sure what his name was, because he was on the night shift and we couldn't thank him the next morning - but it was much appreciated! No fault of his, but LaQuinta should be more aware of situations like these when colleges are so close to campus (I got the impression that this happens more often than not).
