Beds are clean and super comfortable, check in staff was very nice and helpful The hotel is run down and old, but you can tell they try very hard to keep up appearances It was quiet, and the room was cheap

If you’re just looking for a quick and affordable place to rest up before moving on, this is a decent choice Area is a little sketchy but there are restaurants and shops close by Glory Days across the street is an awesome spot with good food too

Leandra Eddy

Honestly they saved me from a dreadful hotel experience at the sleep inn hotel on Busch garden When I called first not only did the front desk made sure I had a wheel chair accessible room they where able to make sure I got the best deal and they made sure to include that we are a military family This hotel went over and beyond to make sure our family got the best experience

Every issue I had was resolved and when I needed to extend a day in the hotel they went over and beyond to make sure we kept a wheel chair accessible room I would definitely recommend choosing this hotel compared to the other I will definitely continue using la Quinta Inn from here on for any vacation I had a very relaxing and wonderful experience We originally came for a wedding and my fathers doctors appt and till the day we left I have no complaints Very clean, Maids cleaned the room if you want new sheets or bedding when requestedJust a excellent experience with a happy family of 6!

I recently had a small house fire and needed a place for me and my cat to stay while my home was being repaired I tried an Airbnb but found it to be unsafe due to animal activity in the walls and flickering lights I was so happy to find a room at La Quinta Inn & Suites

I felt safe the moment I got there All of the staff, including front desk, housekeeping and maintenance, were friendly, kind and helpful When I needed anything they were very responsive My room was clean and the shower had good water pressure with plenty of very hot water The bed was comfortable and all the linens in the room were clean I never saw any bugs anywhere in the building It was quiet and peaceful with a view of a wooded area across from the building Thanks to all of you for making a difficult time a lot easier!

From the minute we walked in, it was obvious that this hotel was 5 star From the check in to check out, everyone was very polite and friendly They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was absolutely perfect

They welcome dogs too The room was spotless, you could eat off the floor Great job crew! Looking forward to our next stay with them!

Derek Brown

As a person who is allergic to cats and dogs I get worried when I check into hotels that allow animals and typically stay away from them but was in a pinch I had no issues with any flair ups so either I was in a room that has never had animals or they do a really good job of cleaningCheck in was quick and easy, room was nice and everything was fairly effortless


They left a big full trash bin :/ the mattress was probably the cheapest most uncomfortable hard mattress I have ever slept on, woke up very sore from it No hot water in shower Have to wait 10 to 15 min to get warm water but hot water not available

No coffee maker in room The place was very generic with a wannabe ikea look but cheaper The lady at the counter in the front was very niceI do not recommend!

This is our second time staying at this hotel It is so accommodating, and comfortable It offers a really good breakfast where you can find fruits, eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cereal, coffee, you name it, it’ll probably be there

There is also a small gym and a pool There is a bar at the entrance, where you can stop by for a couple of drinks before going to bed Also there are a lot of restaurants and stores and an outlet mall across the street Definitely a great place to stay, and will likely go back


Bad experience here My wife and I typically stay with the Hyatt chain First time coming to this one and it was horrible

The room was not clean and we complained The front desk did nothing about it We asked for bath robes or slippers and the employee told us “we are not that type of hotel, you should have went to that type of hotel if you want those things” Very rude and I will never use Hyatt again

Ashleigh Perry

I use love staying here but this evening not so much The gentlemen at the front desk was totally rude and insensitive to what could be going on in my personal life and wanted to say something about my finances in front of 2 others That’s not acceptable

My finances are none of his concern Especially when all I was trying to do was split the payment between two cards I didn’t have enough for the $50 deposit on one card so I asked if we could use a different card for that After a hour of absolutely no help I went on Priceline and paid that way and was told by the ride man that I had to cancel that and use them That was the straw that broke my back and than he had to say what he did about mg finances I don’t need a person that I don’t even know to chime in in my life That’s not his job So needless to say it wasn’t a good time I’m guessing it was because of me being white and not putting up with his ignorant comment that he kicked me out of the hotel and left me with no place to lay my head that night People in Customer Service shouldn’t act like they’re better than anyone, they’re supposed to help, not belittle

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your resort This site will compare hundreds of booking web sites and typically will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in the area

I have been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few days you for sure will love it I’m sure!Samantha and Too Smooth where very professional, polite, and helpful The room was great and the view of Busch Gardens was great, we saw the fireworks show from our room Great coffee, and breakfast Thank you We will be back The only issue I had was I booked on bookingcom and the was no record of it and I had to pay a lot more for the time we stayed

Troy Windhorst

GOOD:– Seriously friendly staff The staff we encountered at check in and the morning breakfast was the best… and really carries the positive weight of this review– We chose this location for its proximity to Busch Gardens and it served those needs well

You can’t walk straight to the park’s entrance because a wall around the BG forces pedestrians to walk a bit out of the way A brisk walk can get you from hotel to park turnstyle in about 20 minutes– Rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker– Interior designs from the lobby to our room are fresh and modern… really looking good– Breakfast had all the hot items that have become staples… eggs, sausage, steamy oatmeal kettle, waffle station, etc– Digital keys are available on the Hilton app We appreciated the option of being able to check in online, choose the room location, and enter our room without physical key cards– Easy in and out of the parking lot via back streets leading to traffic lightsCAUTIONS:– While the room looked great on the surface, it had some rough edges Some brushed stainless steel surfaces have become rusty… not sure if this has been accelerated by extra pandemic cleaning liquids or just from steamy showers… nonetheless, it needs attention– We needed a screwdriver Not the drink… a literal screwdriver From cabinet handles to bathroom fixtures, there was a bit of giggling going on… every screw needed to be tightened Even the TV wasn’t far from coming detached from its swivel connection None of this caused any inconveniences, but it’s a clear sign of minor neglectSUMMARY:– I wouldn’t necessarily give this hotel a perfect score, but I would not hesitate to stay here again Again, the staff is great… making this a solid choice for the Busch Gardens visitor

Karen Koenig

Had 2 king rooms for family birthday celebration Hotel was even nicer than when we stayed in 2018 The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful

The hotel offers free Uber/Lyft to Busch Gardens from 9:30a to 3:30p which was great Our rooms faced the street and we watched the fireworks from there Continental breakfast very good Pool not huge but refreshingDefinitely recommend staying here

Julie Tower

We were late arriving from Orlando and had gotten lost We called the front desk and a gentleman gave me perfect directions to help us arrive to the hotel Once we arrived (10pm) we were greeted by Doug

He was outstanding! We thanked him for the perfect directions and his hospitality We ending up booking for 2 nights instead of just the one just because of Doug He was that welcoming Breakfast was included and it was a hot breakfast at that! Delicious After a long day at Busch Gardens we soaked in the pool It was perfect! Comfortable beds, great room layout and extremely clean We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Excellent location and would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone If we could give it 10 stars we would

Sherri Fischer

Nice place, a little off the beaten path, but really liked the location Room was nice Had everything we needed

What I found odd was that the bathroom was separated Not a bad odd, sort of indifferent Had never seen it in a hotel before The shower and sink were in one room and the toilet and small sink were in another room Side by sideAll in the same hotel room I guess it helps if someone is in the shower and you really need to use the bathroom Maybe they’re on to something! It was very clean, fridge, microwave and coffee maker Breakfast was awesome!! Waffles, eggs, sausage, pastries, cerealsthe normal Would definitely stay again when in the area

A Moore

I wish I would have read the reviews before paying $309 for this room! It smelled AWFUL, as if someone had a BM and didn’t flush the toilet It was clear that while the room “looked” clean it wasn’t very clean The carpet felt questionable and the bed linens didn’t feel as though they underwent a deep wash

The noise from the shower kept me up most of the night-some sort of knocking noise that I still have not been able to pinpoint Maybe the pipes I have no idea!One elevator was broken and the hotel was packed with various youth sporting event guests And shame on me for not doing my research but we were not aware that this is a pet friendly hotel We’re in the hallway when out of nowhere an unleashed dog comes running at us “He doesn’t bite!” the up in age owner yelled as he unsuccessfully chased rocket dog to the end of the hallway Alrighty thenWoke up and was greeted by a bunch of tiny ants in the shower portion of the bathroom (there is a sink and toilet in one area; a sink with counter and shower in a separate area) I had to use the prepackaged makeup remover wipes to kill them As I typed this review, many more ants had come out, possibly to recover the bodies of the fallenSpoke with the Ops Manager She immediately offered me a $40 discount, which was both laughable and predictable We were booked under a group block with a rate of $269/night I was told I couldn’t have the group rate when I cancelled one night of our reservation, thus the $309 rate So my “discount” was essentially the group rate they initially refused to honor What a jokeWe will never, ever, ever stay here again!

This place is the BEST! I recently stayed for a weekend and accidently left my work computer in my room I realized when I got home The office manager and staff were so helpful and kind

They helped with the return and I was so grateful I had a shipping company pick up my computer and I received it back in perfect condition Definitely the place to stay! Thank you! Thank you!

Javier Carranza

When getting a hotel like La Quinta Inn, you need to remember you’re not staying at the Sheraton or Embassy Suites You’re getting something affordable, convenient, and reliable which is exactly what it was! So I’m typically not as picky or critical if something is going on I needed a place to stay for a few days and I got a very comfortable stay

Rooms were a little outdated but cozy, breakfast was nice but there wasn’t much variety And all of that is fine! It’s not the Sheraton rememberThe location to Busch Gardens was awesome and a short Uber/Lyft away and there were some shops about a 10-15 minute walk away which was convenient The staff was extremely friendly and was helpful in answering any question or dealing with any issue I had They were awesome and a big part of the reason why I enjoyed my stayThe stay wasn’t perfect, there was some issues with the toilet, a little water leaked from the AC window unit and I had to get a new key card because mine didn’t work for my room Did I want this to happen? Absolutely not, but for the price I paid and convenience I was okay with it

magaly ramos

The bathroom it’s too low to the floor do you need to update the room more model The carpet needs to go they look really old! The people works there they’re really nice the lobby everything smells good but they need new carpet update to look nicer! The only thing I don’t like the doors when you go in the room they make tuna too much noise you sure slam doors all night

I just want to say, the front desk is very kind and attentive I was making tea near the front (they have free coffee and tea) and I ran out of hot water The nice front desk lady immediately noticed and asked nicely if I need any more

The shower water was softened so it felt so nice and I loved how easy it was to make the water hot quickly The beds were so comfy, we were like how can we get some of these kind of beds at home LOL??? Very cloud-like with just the right amount of firmness, so I felt well rested in the morning They offered free snacks at around 7 PM, free popcorn and cookies! They were delicious, as well as the complimentary breakfast in the morning The breakfast had eggs, sausage, biscuits, muffins, bagels, toast, apple, orange, and cranberry juice, hot and cold cereal, all sorts of good stuff It was really nice and clean in the rooms and all throughout the hotel— loved it! Would definitely recommend for a place to stay!

Home away from home I’m writing this review in regards to Luis and Deborah These two individuals have gone above and beyond to accommodate my stay here at the Sleep Inn Wesley Chapel-Tampa North

They both have bright smiles and professional attitude’s that speaks volumes of their dedication to the guest’s that choose to stay at this location What I like most about my experience with Luis and Deborah is their sincerity, I believe they both care deeply that my needs are met and that I feel welcomed and appreciated Thank you Luis Thank you Deborah 5 Stars are not enough, both of you exceed that tremendously

Eric ilasenko

Great staff made us feel welcome and appreciated as guests Property looks good and things were clean Loved the entrance overhang that let us unload safely dry in a tropical downpour

Sadly, our beds absolutely sucked! They were both uncomfortable to the point of needing sleep meds to fall asleep, and we both woke up sore in the morning Beds felt worn out, and I did too the next day Made trying to work a hard 14 hour day miserable and it will impact where I’ll stay in the future

We stayed at this property while in the Tampa area for a golf weekend What a tremendous staff balancing a bunch of adult golfers and twice as many soccer families Breakfast was fresh, hot and plentiful

Bar staff, very friendly and fun Pool area is separated from an outdoor patio, so adults can enjoy the great outdoors without being splashed, while families enjoyed themselves as well Overall, an easy hotel to get to, lots of restaurants nearby Accommodations very comfortable and spacious

Hailey Nesta

This was my first time staying at this hotel Overall, the lobby area was really clean and newThe room was really impressive, starting with the large couch, comfy bed and nice clean bathroom

The reason I provided your location with 2/5 stars was my experience with some of the employees Check out is at 12pm To constantly have housekeeping knock at my door every couple minutes after around 11am is annoying and frustrating That lasthour I shouldn’t be bothered by housekeeping Checkout isn’t until 12pm Then, I go to checkout and the lady is sitting on the phone not even acknowledging me as a guest I wanted to charge my snack to my room then simply checkout and go I had absolutely no interaction with the front desk agent It’s disappointing to see that over the phone guests matter more than the paying guest standing in-front of you After this experience with the employees, I don’t know if I will return back to this hotel

Terra T.

Great place to stay I was happy with it, it’s not a full service Marriot but has continental breakfast It has a pool and 24 hour gym

The bed was very comfortable It included a little bar area with sink, microwave and really cold fridge The only thing I didn’t like was the shower curtain was too short and water got all over the place

This hotel was pretty good The service was amazing The front desk clerk Angel was an angel! Not so much the lady at night though who was a bit cranky

Always chocolate chip cookies in the pm which my kids loved! Nice free breakfast The only other but would be the bath towels were smaller than usual and the coffee is bad Other than these I would definitely go back and recommend it


Although the overall hotel was very clean and the front desk attendant at check out was great! not so much in the morning The breakfast was horrible yuck unless you like powdered eggs the coffee was like water

But worst of all was that our air did not work and the toilet was not working properly it was so loud that we had to shut off the water to it in order to try and get some sleep We got back to the room from out night out (we only stayed one night) at 2am so we suffered through the night and let the front desk know our issues early that morning We were told a manager would contact us No surprise that we did not received no communication When I called back I was simply told that we should have let them know at 2:30 am when we realized the air wasn’t working and the toilet had an issue No we are sorry or even an offer for a discount on a future stay Not acceptable!


Although very close to family, I was disappointed with some areasAfter spending the night out we returned to our to find insufficient handicap parking When we went to shower in the morning we found the coffee maker was not cleaned from previous guests

The shampoo bottle was almost empty and the conditioner was totally empty The hand cream top was full of used lotion This only leads me to believe that other things in the room weren’t doneWhen we went to check out I explained to the front desk about our stay and the only response from her was to shuffle her shoulders No apology saying have a nice dayI wrote management regarding these concerns, and to my surprise I get a form letter back I then followed up with a email directly to hotel manager and have not heard backI think Best Western needs to look at things at the hotel

I use to travel to Tampa often for work I’m not sure how I found this place I think I was just looking for the best price in the area, on a short notice

I never expected a place this nice for the price I have never paid such a low cost and received such high value at a hotelThe property had obviously been renovated and revamped from a previous chain hotel, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a renovation of this sort so tastefully done The rooms have been converted into very relaxing resort spa-like living space Bamboo vibe is very cool Breakfast was surprisingly quality, with quality flatware and cloth napkinsBravo to the staff for such a top-shelf restyle to the place It’s been at least four years since I was there last, but If I’m Tampa anytime soon, I already know where I’m staying

Steadystackinent soliders

Hopefully advancement is coming soon …If your on a work trip… forget it NO WIFI ITS HORRIBLE We experienced a fire alarm 🚨 drill with no warning just disturbing! The side door is broken, I have to walk around or park far from my room just to get inside Never had a free breakfast that’s false advertising! The laundry room is a hit or miss

They have a cool staff I can say But if your planning a vacation no pool is here unfortunately! The owner should be more aware of guest needs and property issues it’s been a week, how does no one have WiFi for a week? Pay your bills Mr/Mrs! Hire more people or something keep the hallways clean it’s not a boutique it’s a basic hotel The area is perfect but the service needs more work I guess they never heard you have to spend money to make money cause it’s a fancy name with a cheap experience that’s a red flag

Julia Gregory

I cannot recommend the West Wing Hotel to anyone, and it definitely isn’t a “boutique hotel” I purchased a 4 night stay over Hotwire, and I thought I was getting a good deal as it was promoted as a 3 star boutique hotel Ha

Attempts have been made to upgrade its appearance to a more modern look at some point, but it’s an old motel for which a perfect analogy would be “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” It’s dingy, it’s full of mold, and service is poor For what you pay, you could certainly stay somewhere much, much nicer The first room given to us, we went straight back to the front desk because the mold was overpoweringly strong and my husband is very allergic to mold and mildew We were given another room that was marginally better; by the end of our stay, he was congested, coughing, and breaking out into rashes The room was dirty and wasn’t adequately stocked with linens When we asked the front desk for washcloths, we were told they were out of them Washcloths Not even towels Front desk staff was not friendly, and they told us that room service only comes when you’re ready to check out We visit Tampa a few times a year to see family, and we will never stay at The West Wing Hotel again

Everyone here was super friendly It seemed important for the staff to ask how we were doing throughout the day and respect our wishes Rob at the front desk was helpful, friendly and very responsive to our needs

The room with 2 double beds was huge Hotel was clean and very dog friendly Distance to Busch Gardens couldn’t have been better at 5 miles Breakfast was amazing from waffles and bagels to cereal and fresh fruit Thanks for a great visit!

Our stay was nice Rooms were spacious, beds comfortable We were greeted with kindness as the same when we departed

We had traveled to visit my daughter who goes to USF When we got to the hotel we had brought a whole bunch of cheese for my daughter which we put into the mini fridge right away (We are from Wisconsin and live put cheese!) Unfortunately, when we left the next morning we forgot the cheese (totally our fault!), but called the hotel a couple hours later when we remembered The lady who answered was very nice and after several minutes of waiting on hold she notified us that our cheese was gone For real?! When cleaning a room you don’t see all this unopened cheese and think, huh, maybe they will come back? I can see if we called the next day expecting it, but it wasn’t even two hours later Very disappointing Hotel definitely gets a 4-5 stars, but housekeeping-1!

Definitely didn’t want to leave! Kudos to management and everyone who takes part in this hotel I will definitely be back real soon!! ❤️

The staff at this location goes above and beyond for the guest I’ve never stayed at a hotel that provided great customer service in addition to handling guest with extra care I’ve stayed at this location twice, both times the property was clean and again the staff was welcoming

Last minute arrangements & reservations were made for my large family with ease I really appreciate the kindness of the staff as well as very clean facility All members at the front desk greeted us with a smile and answers for any questions we may have had Thank you again for a great experience & stay


Stayed here twice for a week each over the past few months Love it! Very clean and nice I’ll keep coming here for work! Love the included convenient breakfast

I would say though that the elevators are super slow, the pool is small, the bedroom doors are loud and woke me up a couple times, but I thinks these complaints are minor and at most other hotels so I will still give it 5 stars! The employees are great and super friendly and kind Thank you!

Great hotel, clean rooms, pool was cold but nothing a bit of sunburn won’t cure The staff was great and very polite Oddly, in the middle of the night, the water goes out

I recomend fixing that water issue and having more shaded areas around the patio We would definitely go back

If you’re looking for a place to stay in the north Tampa/Citrus Park area this is it! It’s one of the few hotels in the Tampa area with FREE PARKING! The hotel is pretty new and has lots of seating areas in the lobby for anyone who needs to get some work done The breakfast food options are decent and will range between $12-$15 There’s a great outside seating area with a fire pit

The rooms are a decent size and are pretty comfortable There’s a desk in each room that make getting work done easy The bathrooms are modern and very cleanAdditionally the hotel is next to a walking trail which is very convenient for walking, running or biking There are several food options nearby and within walking distance from the hotel There’s also a mall and shopping center nearby

A++++++ THANK YOU JASMINE & RAMONA !!!! I haven’t reviewed a hotel in a whole long time but these two people at Marriott here really made me feel welcome They had all my room preferences taken into consideration and offered me so much during my check in 💙💯I really appreciate the wonderful, very clean, comfortable room you have for me

Not only did they take the time to rebook my next room for the rest of the weekend, Thank you Jasmine They also helped me with getting my laundry done by borrowing me a few quarters from their own pocket, thank you Ramona 🙂🙏You both really are great and kind, and they should have more people such as yourselves working or training others at property’s that don’t go all the way like you both have 🔥🤙🇺🇸💜Sincerely,Joe

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here The hotel was extremely clean and comfortable The lobby was a great space to relax and grab a bite in the morning with my coworkers

Lisa was fabulous in assisting us with any needs we had during our meetings She even went above and beyond and provided us with some extremely helpful documents The rest of the staff was just as nice as could be Next time we are in the Tampa area, I will beeline right to this hotel and know that I am in great hands

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful one-night stay locally away from our 4 kiddos, to celebrate a night out for his birthday It was so great to check in and relax in beautiful modern, clean accommodations while we leisurely got ready for our night out The hotel team members were so friendly and quick to meet any of our needs that we presented

The sleeping environment was so comfortable with quiet rooms, comfy beds and pillows The wonderful accommodations from start to finish made this one night birthday get-away so relaxing and fun!

Breakfast was back to pre-pandemic and was pretty nice offering The room has been updated However, the cleanliness and service has something to be desired

Check in front desk was great but we messaged front desk at 12:13 asking for another wash cloth as there was only 1 in the room and never heard back even next morning or when we were sleeping I understand staffing but communication is key There is also mold in the shower on the ceiling and the shampoos Really needs detailed cleaning

Katelyn Valles

I had a good experience I think it would have been better if there was more storage space options like dressers or drawers to put your belongings inI also thought the breakfast was average

They had back order issues for oatmeal and the only fruit they had were apples They served scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels, packages waffles, yogurt and have different juicesThe pillows were way too soft and they didn’t have an extra pillow stored anywhereEverything else was fine Service was good

A nice place to stay in the North Tampa AreaThis is a Marriott Brand hotel There are 1118 of these hotels across 828 cities in the 50 states This particular hotel is a 5 story affair located off the southeast corner of the intersection of I-95 and East Fletcher Ave

It can be a little tricky to get to the entrance since it is located on a side road with only one entrance off that road sandwiched between a Bob Evans and an Extended Stay hotel There is not much that is within walking distance of the hotel but it seems a fairly quiet area There appears to be plenty of parking and a covered entrance The lobby is very small but the staff was friendly There is a breakfast area with complimentary coffee in the morning and a workout room The room was a semi-suite with a seating area and a bedroom separated by a wall with an open entrance The front portion of the room had the restroom by the front door and a pull-out bed And the bedroom area had a low set of drawers, 2 side tables, and a large tv Overall, it was a nice hotel at a reasonable price
