    Nice rooms with micro and fridge. Though, breakfast was not so good. No eggs, han or any other kind of salty food. Waffels wasnt also very good. But there is Ihop right next to it. Free parking and helpful personel.

    « Excellent short-term stay »

    We needed an interim stay when moving back to Tampa before our home was ready. This hotel worked perfectly. Fridge and microwave in the room, decent choices for free breakfast, small fitness center, easy free parking, and room for our large suitcases in the room. Could have used a bit more hanging space, but we had a lot of clothes with us. Walking distance to California Tacos, First Watch for lunch, Fresh Market for a few fridge items, and Bonefish Grill for a great restaurant plus Starbucks also close by.

    « A Pleasant Fall Vacation »

    I was able to check in early (1:30 pm),as my room was ready:) The hotel was clean & quiet. The latter is a good thing, given its location on a busy highway. The staff were all very pleasant & helpful:) Rates are reasonable. I suggest booking early, as it fills up & sells out fast. Being new to the Tampa area, I had only booked the first (2) nights of my stay. I didn't realize that the NFL game was being held in town that Thursday evening. Rooms for W & Th nights were at a premium both here & at other hotels also. While I was glad I was able to stay there (due to a last minute cancellation), I was charged a higher rate for those (2) weeknights ($35-$45 per night), which I didn't realize until post-checkout. Having had an early AM flight, I'm not sure if my AAA discount wasn't applied to those last (2) evenings, but am inquiring at this time. The complimentary breakfast was very good, with something for everyone. My only suggestions are that they add a) cartons of skim milk & b) more fresh fruit options other than just apples (bananas, oranges).The hotel is accessible by walking to many things. However, a local shuttle service would be nice within a 5 mile radius for sightseeing purposes. Pool & weight room were small, but nice to have available)!! Thank you very much for your great service & hospitality:)!!

    « insolent check in person »

    We were in town for the Stevie Nicks concert. We had a confirmed pre-paid reservation for a king bed and was given a room with two double beds. once we pulled up our reservation that showed our confirmed status a king room was found in a few seconds when previously we were told hotel was booked to capacity and no other rooms were available...This was a turn off to us. The room was sufficient for an overnighter, it did not meet my standards for clean...but it was not filthy. The bed was like concrete and I like a fIrm bed. We checked out at 1 am the following night instead of sleeping, as we just didnt like the place. We will not stay here again. The attitude of the front desk person, who when we said we stayed at other best westerns and didnt have an issue was oh well this is a franchise not corporate owned. Regardless of that, all I really want is a clean room, comfortable bed and civil customer service.

    « No complaints »

    Stayed here for 4 nights and did not experience anything less than perfect. The room was very clean and well maintained. Our room was next to the elevator and laundry room, but we didn't hear any noise from it at all which was great. Got good night's rest every night. Free continental breakfast had waffle makers, toast, bagels, cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, and oatmeal. If you wanted anything else there is an IHOP across the street. Heads up, the hotel is on a very busy main road, but close to the Tampa Airport and Busch Gardens. All the staff we interacted with were pleasant. Thanks for a great stay!

    I was a late check in and they made my check in as smooth as possible. I was a little worried by coming into town so late and i had no problem with the check in procedure. The express grab and go was something I had never heard of for early departures and the had a little snack for the road...

    The staff was very friendly. Took the time to offer several great recommendations for dining. Room was very clean and comfortable. When in my room, I was unable to hear outside noise.

    I had a problem with my booking and it never appeared at the hotel. But the man at the front desk was very anxious...he tried everything. It still looked like I would be without a bed in a few hours. Thank goodness he was able to give me an upgrade because I wouldn't have had any energy after my 5hour drive, searching for another place to stay. The room was way to big for a single person but I was thankful. I had a great stay afterwards. Thank you Best Western. I appreciate it.

    « Has what I needed »

    This is a basic no frill hotel if you do not consider a microwave, good size fridge, 24/7 fitness room, courteous service and free wifi as frills but necessities as I do. Room was clean but lighting and air conditioning were minimal. The room stayed somewhat dark and warm even when I had all the lights on and the air conditioner going at full speed. It is close to the airport ( about 15 minute drive). A fresh market and ? max and pancake houseis nearby . I would stay there again if I need a hotel for one night.

    « Nice place with no extra frill »

    Although, the hotel seemed a little older, it was a very clean property, and the front desk employees were very friendly. They went out of there to find my information since I had forgot my Best Western card to make sure they found me, and added my points. Other than us leaving out of our room a little late one day, and the maids skipping our room that day we definitely had a good stay.

    Very clean, close to the airport. Great breakfast with a lot of choices. The staff was very helpful. The room was also clean and the bed very comfortable. It also had a microwave and a fridge. The WiFi was free and the speed was acceptable. Just wished that the checkout was at 12:00 pm instead of the 11:00am.

    Friendly receptionist. Room was ok decor wise but our bed was quite small! We both rolled into the centre because the mattress was dodgy. The air conditioning blew into our faces during the night. The shower was good. Why do American hotels have the coffee making facilities in the bathroom?? And no tea? The breakfast was good. Again there was no dining facilities onsite for lunch or dinner but maybe that's the American way.

    « worst best western ever »

    Not very clean, very dated and not clean looking decor. there was what looked like blood on the bathroom wall, and mold by the ceiling in our room. Also, we had reservations for a king bed, and they gave us 2 double beds, but we had evacuated due to the hurricane, so I chose not to complain. We will never stay here again. I have stayed at best westerns for years, and this was the worst one.

    Love the pillows and the staff was very nice. We would go back here the next time we need to be in Tampa. Love that the room had a fridge and a microwave. Convenient to all we were doing while in the area. Close to 275 for easy on and off travel.

    « Great Value and Central Location »

    If you are looking for a hotel with a beautiful lobby, great views, beautiful landscaped grounds, large rooms, this is not for you. Instead you are located in a very dense commercial area(Con), buts lots of stores and restaurants nearby(Pro). Also for your value price you will receive a very comfortable, quiet, clean, and well maintained room with all the amenities-work desk, safe, newspaper, fridge, microwave, and breakfast. There is a most welcoming front desk staff, and a friendly and attentive housekeeping and breakfast room staff. A nice feature is their swimming pool is accessible for 24 hours(not found that often). I would readily return for a future stay!

    « Disgusting rooms, obnoxious, rude and ignorant General manager, DON'T STAY HERE! »

    so where do I begin? I'm a frequent BW customer and a platinum member, so naturally I stay at many BW locations all around the country; and, This one is by far the worst BW I've ever stayed in. After making a reservation for a NON-smoking-room for a one night stay about 3 weeks in advance, I arrive at the hotel at 10:30pm, check-in and walk to my room, open the door, just to find out that there are people in the room I was checked into. I'm surprised, they are surprised, and let's not go into the deatils of what I walked into. I walk back to the reception where the front-desk lady calmly says "oh, my bad" without any further apology and treating the situation like it was no big deal at all. Then she tells me that the last room available is a Smoking-room, and there is not much she can do. at this point at around 11pm, I have no other choice. So, to much of my dismay, I'm put in the Smoking-room. I open the door and the smoke-smell is soooo strong and the room sooo reeked of smoke that I pick up the phone from the room and tell the lady that I'll be checking out bc I can't possibly spend the night in such disgusting room. All of a sudden, she tells me that she updated the system and a Non-smoking-room has magically become available. so I walk back to the front desk, get the keys to the 3rd room. The 3rd room was a non-smoking room, yes, but it was disgusting as well, red spots on the tub (blood drops?), stains on the towels, and overall a disgusting bathroom. it is 11:30pm, one hour after I arrived, and after the shenanigan I have encountered for the past hour, I no longer have the time, nor the energy to complain to anyone about the terrible conditions. I sleep the night, wake up at 5AM, and leave at 6Am for my meeting. I then call the hotel and ask for the General manager to explain and complain about my terrible stay. Instead of listing to me, he became so defensive and started telling me that "I need to grow up" and hangs up the phone. The manager, George C., is a obnoxious, arrogant, and an extremely rude individual who doesn't know a thing about customer service. I call back to ask for his name so I can file a report with Best Western Customer relations, and he tells me his name, and then tells me "make sure you get it right". This person is a shame to Best western and a liability to any business that is involved in customer service. Do yourself a favor, and stay away from this poorly managed, disgusting, dirty and unwelcoming place. Pay 70 dollars more and save yourself lots of hassle, headache and dealing with a rude and obnoxious manager.

    The service is excellent. I stay there because of the location and safety. The building is older but is well maintained.. I go back because the staff members are professional and will go out of their way to assist clients. Check out is easy and clients do not feel rushed. Daily papers are provided and there is always fresh coffee 24 hours a day. Computers are available. Their breakfasts are exceptional .....always fresh fruit and real walnuts to put on cereal or Greek yogurt. Guests never feel that they have to eat in a hurry but have time to enjoy all that is offered at breakfast. I am always disappointed if Best Western does not have a vacancy when I call reservations for a room.

    Nice Hotel, centrally located in downtown Tampa. There is a IHOP restaurant right next door that is open 24 hours-so after any event, concert, sports, just walk next door and eat in or carry out a nice hot meal! Only 4 miles from Amalie Arena, and only about 5 miles to Raymond James Stadium. CVS & Walgreens Pharmacies also within 2 miles. ChicFilet,, Subway just to name a couple others. Oh and they deliver pizza to your room if you like and Jacuzzi rooms available too.

    « Second Stay »

    This is my second time at this specific location. It was easy to get to my meeting location from there and back on the highway home. If you have a large truck, trailer or SUV, get there early. Parking spaces are small and the driveway is narrow if the lot is full. It was full when I arrived and I had a hard time backing out. The hotel itself is very clean and it was quiet and peaceful. I don't sleep well when away from home, thus the average rating for sleep quality. You can decide for yourself. I will return to this hotel when I have business in Tampa again.

    « Not expensive, clean, decent breakfast! »

    We paid $94 bucks for a room on the third floor with three beds and a couch. The place is a little outdated but clean, good condition. Not bad for the price and great if you are in a budget. I booked my room through hotwire and would definitely recommend.

    « Fantastic Staff but damp room »

    We checked in with an extremely friendly and helpful front desk person. She was very helpful with information for the area. The hotel rugs were very worn and the room was damp feeling. It was clean though but very humid. The bathroom was extremely narrow. Breakfast had a very good variety from Belgian waffles to healthier options as well. Overall if you could run a strong dehumidifier throughout the building and replace the rugs, we would stay there again. Thank you to the exceptional staff!

    We had a one night stay here so we could go to treasure island beach. The Hotel is clean and well kept. The staff is excellent. The first room we got was a little small for three people put we saw a bigger room as we walked in the hall way. We asked for that room and were given it at no additional cost. As we sat waiting for the rom to be cleaned the staff woman l didn't get her name gave us a bag of fruit and showed us where beverages were. The Hotel is about 30 minutes from measure island and John's pass where the restaurants are situated. It was a straight ride on 275 to the island.

    « Angry Customer »

    I stayed in rm 107 which was a handicapped room. We had to be moved to room 103 and a non English speaking housekeeper let us in and at the time saw a $500. Kate Spade purse. We left and went to Clearwater Beach for about 4 hrs. Upon returning the purse was not in the room. Let me say I was using it more as a catch all and carrying another purse with my wallet and $$. I went to the front desk and was told to wait and speak to the manager in the morning. I did and he said there is nothing he can do and he stands by his staff and their honesty. I told a couple that was there be careful things were taken from my room and they are doing nothing about it. He said he was calling the police on me and have me removed for trespassing. Mind you my room was paid for already. He did call and so did I. They came, wrote up a report and are going to question the housekeeper. I am also having corporate check the lock to see who and how many times the room was entered and when. If something comes of this and I want to prosecute...guess who has to drive from Nashville, Tenn. to Tampa, Fl. on her own dime????!!!! ME! So I guess you can't bring anything of value unless you go around town wearing or carrying it all at all times. Let me also say again he said I was beligerent and wanted me removed. The couple that I spoke to were willing to say that I just told them without yelling and going crazy. Angry...yes...acting insane...no. I don't even want to give them one star but I had to choose one to be able to continue. I have a call in to corporate who is on a different time zone to report this and see what my options are. I happen to have a picture on my phone with the purse in the background just by chance.

Breakfast was adequate, however at exactly 9:30 the staff came it and started cleaning up. What disturbed me was the dumping of two carafes of coffee. I did not know why they did not put them in the lobby where coffee is furnished all day. It is a no frills place to lay your head at night.

    I have stayed at several BW's and this was in fact the WORST. When we arrived the lobby was HOT, there was an issue with the air. The hallway and room and an "old" odor to it. The room and bathroom was VERY dusty and un-clean. The pillows had an odor to them also. I typically bring my own but we flew and our luggage was full. I could go on but I'll stop with there were ants in the breakfast cereal.

    This B/W hotel is what hotels should be. We booked in early and a room was available so we were happy travellers. Unfortunately there was a problem with the curtains and when this was pointed out the manager, Mr George Casanova he called maintenance and immediately offered an alternative room. This was first class customer service. The hotel looked clean and tidy from the outside and inside was of the same standard. Rooms are large with a Jacuzzi style bath and shower. All fittings worked and are of a high standard. This establishment is value for money and we would have no hesitation in both staying here again and recommending Best Western Tampa.

    « Disappointment »

    A tired, poorly managed property tarnishes the reputation of a solid old brand. Stay away! Inattention to maintenance and a surly attitude of the manager make this a particularly nasty combination. Could hear other guests complaining about their experience at checkout with similar results. The manger tries to defend indefensible conditions and comes off, not apologetic but rather uninterested in your opinion. It's a sad property!

    On the good side, the people are friendly, rooms are clean, and the location was good. That said, when I got to my room and took my shoes off, my socks were soaked in a few seconds. Checked the floor and it was sopping wet. Went to front desk, asked for a different room and was told: a) the floors were just shampooed that day and; b)they were booked solid before and after . To my mind, not a good management decision. Took 2 days (with the help of a fan they loaned me) to dry it out so I could walk sock-footed without getting them wet. Breakfast is OK, hot item is a pancake machine. Previous reviewers complained about parking. Yes, the spaces were tight. I had a compact, so it wasn't a problem for me. Don't hink I would stay here again

    My boyfriend and I needed a few nights to ourselves, so we chose this hotel because it was affordable and there are plenty of food options within walking distance. It isn't glamorous by any means, but the point was to spend a few days being lazy and comfortable, and we were able to here. Pros: Large jacuzzi tub, decent sized refrigerator, huge room with cozy, king sized bed, microwave, temp control, really nice staff Cons: The TV was a bit too small to see comfortably from the bed, really awful smell coming from the bathroom sink, small shower, our feet were pretty dirty from walking around on the carpet, the room smelled kind of musty and turning on the air didn't help, we were hoping to use Netflix on his PS3, but the wifi will not connect to gaming devices (the lady at the front desk said it will cost them more)

    « Drab Hotel »

    This is was a poor choice. It was drab and dowdy. Minuscule parking lot with the narrowest spaces, Obviously more rooms than spots. The room was unbelievably basic for a Best Western.Decor was sad. Stayed there as it was close to the airport, but find somewhere else as the price was the same as other better hotels.

    « Good value for the money »

    Visited in March 2016. For the price the room with a king bed was fine, clean and big enough for me, staying alone. Traffic around Tampa was often slow and the motel was on a very busy street (Dale Mabry) but the location was very convenient to Kennedy and I-275 so I was happy with that. Two minor points: the last of the 5 days I was there the shower worked poorly and they said that they'd fix it but I was leaving so I don't know how that turned out. Also, the breakfast was a little poorer than other places I've been in that offered a breakfast: the only eggs were hard boiled and they kept the same collection of them the whole week I was there. The fruit was limited, including small packs of Dole mixed fruit in the refrigerator. No waffles, but I didn't starve.

    I was in town for vacation, country music and strawberry festival. Hotel was convenient to where I needed to be. Mid town Tampa is a little low scale, and under construction, no problem with this particular location. Good value for the time spent.

    « Very nice property »

    This hotel is well maintained and centrally located. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, clean, and quite. The swimming pool seemed larger than a typical hotel with a large deck with seating. Restaurants and shopping is within an easy walk if you don't want to drive. The parking lot only has one-way in/out and felt safe.

    Hotel room very loud especially for a pre departure cruise site destination. Several solitations kicked under door during sleeping times which woke occupants up during sleep time. Staff very unhelpful for transportation from hotel to cruise ship terminal especially when this is a majority of their business.

    « Top Notch Best Western »

    My wife and I stayed here the night of Feb. 13, 2016 after a flight from Canada. We were connecting with a cruise. The front desk was friendly on our check in and with help the nest morning with locating a local grocery store to pick up some items. The free breakfast the next morning was expected and was clean and well stocked. The check out was around noon and we were allowed to leave bags in a small back room while we had lunch next door. We would stay here again if the we were travelling in this area again.

    My husband and I needed a hotel for a quick trip to Tampa to see Benise in concert. We wanted something close to the Tampa Theater and near our favorite restaurant, Acropolis. This Best Western was perfectly located and had a really good rate for our overnight stay. The free continental breakfast was definitely a perk!

    « Bah Humbug! »

    Less than meets your eye! Believe me, less is not more especially here. Cleanliness of rooms and service of maids and front desk personnel was less than adequate. Be more discerning where you rest your head, you may end up with bed bugs and head lice if not!

    « Great hotel but needs better parking »

    The hotel was very nice and staff were pleasant. We were even upgraded to a suite and the jacuzzi tub was wonderful! My only complaint is the parking. We were in town for a play and didn't get back to the hotel until around midnight. By that time, all the parking spots were taken. When we asked the staff at the front where we should park, he directed us to park in the grass along the side street. It worked well enough but there should be enough parking to accommodate all guests.

    « Bed Bugs! »

    I visited this hotel with a few friends from out of town. The majority of the stay was pleasant; however, we woke up to a bed bug in our bed and the management did nothing to assist. One assistant manager took a pictures for her records, but when the general manager, George C. spoke with me over the phone, he denied that it was a bed bug even though his staff had taken pictures. They could have resolved the issue but do to the lack of customer service and professionalism, I have been working with corporate to resolve the issue. I love Best Western, but this management team is a disgrace to the name.

    « Good Place for a Short Stay »

    We used this decently priced hotel for a one night stay before boarding a cruise. It is handily situated about midway between the airport and the cruise terminal. It is not a high-end luxury hotel - nor does it pretend to be. We found everything to be up to our expectations. The room was comfortable, TV and wifi service was excellent, the breakfast was modest but acceptable (especially as we didn't have to pay extra for it) and the staff were consistently welcoming, courteous and helpful. We really appreciated the 24-hour availability of complimentary coffee and iced water. For dinner or a more substantial meal, I recommend IHOP next door.

    « "THE WORST STAY EVER!" »

    I checked in this hotel and paid ALL of the necessary fees associated with the room. The next morning I received a call which altered my plans of staying 4 nights to staying just that one night. When I got ready to check out that morning, the clerk behind the desk refused to give me back my money for the rest of the stay. There was no sign up in the hotel that read this disclaimer nor was there any clause in my contract that stated this. She called the owner and he refused to come. To make a long story short, I had to come back the following day to receive my refund. When I got there, the owner was there. He was very rude and I recorded him with my cell phone calling me a "wench!"

    « Good Pre-Cruise Stay »

    Reasonable priced, very clean hotel. Within walking distance of several restaurants. We were two people;booked a two bedroom suite (same price as a one bedroom, so why not?). Comfortable beds, modern furnishings. We are usually Marriott or Hilton property people but they were booked; BW was available and we have no regrets. Breakfast offerings were a bit less than most places we've stayed, but still plenty of choices (make your own pancakes). Excellent, friendly desk clerk when checking in: we asked about local restaurants and were given a free appetizer coupon to Square 1(a short walk) - great choice. Would stay again if in the area. Also, if this helps: $15 cab ride from the airport; $25 cab to the port (heavy traffic but I think we paid more than we should have).

    « Not All That Great »

    We booked a smoking room by mistake (our mistake NOT the hotel's) and that was not great. The hotel was sold out so we couldn't switch rooms. The front desk gave us Lysol Spray which helped some but it was still stinky. The bathroom floor was dirty and the mirror was dirty. This is an older hotel and a bit 'worn' - even the buttons on the elevator were worn. The HVAC system smelled of smoke so we turned it off. The breakfast was minimal. The only hot food was pancakes and there was a line of people to get them.

    We really liked this hotel. The room was spacious and clean. Free Parking, free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and a small gym was included. There is also an IHOP next door if you want something else. The Staff was friendly and helpful. The only downset was that we had to change our rooms one day before our final departure. Downtown Tampa and Ybor City are just a 10-15 Minutes drive. We would definitely come here again.

    The hotel was clean but needs some updating. Carpets, walls, bed covers, towels, bathrooms have seen better days for sure. Breakfast area was large and clean and included with the room. The bed was ok for a short stay. The noise level was loud, anyone talking in the hallway we could hear the conversation clearly that they were close to our door or down the hall didn't seem to make a difference. Overall for a one night stay I was ok with it. Staff was very nice. Wifi was good when connected but dropped connection 2 -3 times during the 1 hour I used it.

    While this hotel was clean with decent amenities for the price, it does not offer shuttle service to and from the airport. They put out a nice free breakfast. I can recommend it but be prepared to spend $$ on cab fare or rent a car. Also the neighborhood's not so great.

That is one of the reasons why we try to stay at a Best Western when we travel. I would stay at this location again if I returned to Tampa!

    This was our first time in Tampa and were not sure where we should stay. Called the hotel a couple times with questions. The staff was super helpful each and every time. The hotel is within walking distance of a Publix, The Fresh Market and Trader Joe's. Our room was clean and had a safe which we appreciate. You can take the #19 bus downtown and take the River and Bayshore Walk. TIP: If you do this, take the #19 Port Tampa back to the hotel. Once again the front desk staff helped steer us in the correct direction to catch the bus and return. There was a nice outdoor pool. Coffee, tea, lemon water available 24/7. Coin operated laundry was available. There is a small gym. Breakfast was just great. The only suggestion would be to offer a listing of TV stations. We plan to return on our next visit through Tampa.

    We checked in at this hotel prior to a cruise. The man at the front desk was very helpful and got us into our room quickly. The parking lot is VERY small and tight quarters. The room was mostly clean, with exception of the toilet in the bathroom. There was dried urine on the toilet seat. It was after 1am when we checked in and we were too exhausted to ask to change rooms at that point. We cleaned the seat with Clorox wipes we had with us and dealt with it. Other than this issue, we had no other problems and would most likely stay here again.

    I should have known when I booked the hotel and when asking about my discount and the manager said "This isn't let's make a deal". But I shook it off and booked anyway due to the economical price. The overall smell and appearance wasn't too bad, but our room was AWFUL? The musty smell was overwhelming and actually gave me a headache. Even my boyfriend who does not have allergies was bothered. We asked to switch and were told they were full. I asked for ANY size room, even the handicap and she told me they were totally sold out. However, later on I heard a couple at the front desk ask for a certain type of room and the front desk woman said "we're out of (x) type of room- we only have (y) left. They claim they have hot breakfast and there was NOTHING hot about it! Bagels, room temperature yogurt, prepackaged sweet rolls, cereal. No eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, nothing. Needless to say, we cancelled the rest of our reservation and got a less expensive hotel with hot breakfast that is absolutely spotless. All it would have taken to make us at least content is switch rooms or a discount off of the room we already had. F for customer service!

    The room was very large, with a Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. The bed was comfortable and everything was very clean. The only problem was we had room 114 at the end of the hallway, and there was a constant 24 hour humming from the pool area right next to us (the pump?). This was a lullaby for my husband, but kept me awake the first night. The second night I slept like a baby. Overall, I would stay here again. Great location!
