We were having our house tented and looked up affordable lodging. Booking way in advance, we chose Best Western South Tampa. The rooms were double bed and standard bath. A/C worked great. There are two handicapped spaces, which we grabbed when available. The staff was nice and helpful. The cleaning crew didn't speak English but I know enough to speak Spanish.Check-In is 4PM and Out is 11AM. I expected this to be a really noisy Hotel and was dreading it with my PTSD, anxiety. My elderly mother even had no problems taking a shower in a standard tub when she most always require a walk-in shower. The bath does have a large metal bar to hold on to.TV is standard LG "38 with HDMI input for streaming boxes. Spectrum limited Cable TV with Showtime channels.Breakfast is 6:30 to around 10AM and offers great choices. If that is not to your liking then you have an IHOP right next door that is 24 hours. I give this relatively new Hotel 5 stars as I am very hard to please given my disability. BTW, we were on the 1st floor looking south. Parking may be limited but given the over development here in South Tampa our Mayor has approved, it suits me fine!

George C, General Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review

This hotel is clean, efficient and especially filled with a group of employees that are very helpful, courteous and offer great customer service. I would say it works best for a business trip due to the closeness to the airport and downtown. If you want to be hanging out next to the Ocean or on a balcony you should probably head towards Clearwater. I myself will definitely stay at this Best Western again. Great time in Tampa! Thanks to George and the staff!

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review

Visited here for 2 nights. The hotel and rooms are a little bit dated with a slight damp smell, however for the price and location this is an excellent choice. The staff were brilliant providing milk for our young child after a late check in and local stores had closed

The Best Western hotel on Dale Mabry in Tampa has far exceeded our expectations. George, the manager, as well as the other staff were very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast bar is good and there are a variety of cold and hot foods! The room was clean and comfortable. We will definitely return!

Great customer service . Upon arriving after a terrible travel day , the two ladies who checked me in were very helpful and friendly . I couldnot get my iPad to connect to the internet in order to stream a movie but other than that my stay was excellent! Breakfast was ok . All hotels have the powedered eggs which I personally do not care for . There were no breakfast meats . The rest was fresh and Well displayed . I would recommend this hotel .

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you for your great feedback! We are happy to hear that our front desk staff helped brighten your bad day and gave you the warm welcome they are known for at check-in.

We stayed one night at the Best Western Tampa. The hotel is on a busy road with lots of commercial businesses as well as restaurants, shops, and hotels. The hotel has free parking, pool, jacuzzi, free morning breakfast, 24 hour coffee and water area. Our king room was large and clean with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine. Bed was comfy and hallway was quiet. Staff was friendly and willing to answer questions as to attractions, directions, and good restaurants in the area (Bonefish Grill is a block away) If we needed to stay in a hotel in downtown Tampa. The Best Western Tampa would be a choice we would consider.

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review

We booked this hotel for 3 days at the end of July, my daughter was taking the Bar Exam.. we booked early.. which was good they filled up fast. There was not an unfriendly person working in this hotel.. our room was spotless...the Wifi was amazing and since she had to load the exam from our hotel that was a must...it was close to everything it took us about 10 minutes to get her to the Convention Center from the hotel...and food was close.. we went exploring while she was in the exam and it was super easy to get around from here...

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
Awesome! So glad that you and your family had a great experience while staying with us and that your daughter had a quiet and convenient place to prep for the bar exam.

Stayed at the Best Western for two days while in Tampa. It is an ok place to stay for a few days and great for the price but expect no frills!. It is also well located to the Malls and there is a Trader Joe and some restaurants within a walking distance. The continental breakfast was good. The staff and front desk were courteous and nice.

03/07/2018

George, the manager, and everyone that works there could not be nicer. Everyone, that includes front desk, breakfast ladies, housekeeping are as friendly and helpful as possible. The place is super clean (one of my requirements), very comfortable beds, clean pool, good and varied breakfast, and has daily newspaper for guests. Great location in the middle of everything. A very reasonable cost. Now, the only negative that can be said:there may be an electric outlet that doesn't work or a lamp. It does seem to be a older motel. The good , by far, outweighs the bad.

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you for your very candid review! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and had an overall positive experience. Our staff does a great job maintaining the property as well as providing excellent customer service - both of which are our highest priorities. We are in the planning phases of a major renovation that will update the entire property, from the guest rooms to the public areas and exterior. We hope that you choose to stay with us again the next time you visit the Tampa area!

Parking is very limited and mostly for compact vehicles! Tough to turn around or park in parking lot if in a truck. Hotel is outdated, could use freshening up. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Location is close to lots of attractions.

We got in late from our long day of travels . We just needed one night . If you don't mind an outdated hotel then this is the place for you. Over all the place was clean the beds were comfortable . The breakfast was just ok they didn't have any eggs and I have not seen paper thin bacon like that before. But ... For the price you cannot go wrong and ONLY for one night .

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
We greatly appreciate your candid feedback as it will only help us to improve. First, let me apologize for the lack of eggs as this is something that should be on the breakfast buffet daily. While we we are pleased that you were happy with the clean, comfortable accommodations, we regret that you were unhappy with the decor. We are in currently in the planning phases of a major renovation that should happen within the next year. This will include updates to the guest rooms and public areas. Please stay tuned!

"disgusting horrible smell throughout hotel"

1
30/04/2018

The hotel had a disgusting smell, like a cross between a sewer and mold damage. It was not evident in the lobby but I was assigned a room on the first floor and before even getting to it I was overwhelmed. The fact that they gave me that room without even mentioning thie issue was unbelievable. There were fans running and I later found out there had been damage on WEDNESDAY and this was SAT night!! I asked for a different room, which I was granted on the 3rd floor. The hallway there was fine, but inside the room there was a moldy smell comming from the airconditioner and the room smelled. It was already midnight and I had to get up a 5 to catch a flight so I really did not have a choice. The next morning the clerk only said "I'm sorry" and then I found aout about the damage. I have asthma and I could barely sleep. There are serious health issues here. Even if this was an emergency, the fact that they did not notify registered guests or those with reservations or help in any way says sometihing about their lack of concern. In retropspect, it would have been better to just leave and stay up all night at the airport.

Sean M, Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
I would like to apologize that your experience was not positive. We did indeed have a water line break in the early morning hours this past Friday. Within hours we had a professional carpet cleaning service out to help us dry out the first floor hallway that was affected. As you are aware, it takes some time to completely dry out. Upon your arrival the next day, it was still not completely dry. This caused a damp odor. I can assure you that this is out of the ordinary event. I can also assure you there were no hazards present and that our guest health and safety is priority one. I hope that you can give us another chance in the future. I would like to offer you 50% off your next stay. Again, I apologize that you were not satisfied with your stay with us.

19/04/2018

Location was close to our final destination. Friendly staff greeted us upon our arrival.Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Close to different food options, and a IHOP is adjacent to the Hotel. Hotel seemed to be a little outdated, Lobby was dark and halls were hot, bathrooms needed a little TLC. Vending machines were a little over priced. Would recommend for a stop over stay hotel or Business stay.

I take back the "hard to" part. It is really "impossible to". This place is less than 10min drive from downtown, has a lot of nice places to eat at less than a minute. Staff is SUPERB, helpful, friendly. Rooms are clean and the whole property shows that it's been taken care off periodically. The included breakfast is great for the price. Will definetly stay again when returning to town.

The price was reasonable. The staff was friendly and nice. They include a decent breakfast buffet. The hotel itself is run down. The carpeting in the hallways of this hotel are completely worn down. How they leave it like this is beyond me. The room was clean but nothing to write home about. When we asked the front desk where we should eat dinner she told us to go to a restaurant behind the hotel and that we didn't need to take the car. We walked back there and two homeless guys were there in the middle of a heated argument. That was it for our walk. We ran to the car and picked another place. I will not be returning to this place.

Not a very good stay especially for the room rate. Could have done much better elsewhere. Was in town for a wedding and thought the wedding party blocked out rooms and would be getting a better rate not so. Rate varied from night to night and a single room rate was same as a double. Room smelled immediately as you walked in

We stayed last night at the Best Western Tampa. It was excellent!! We had a really nice first floor room. They have a great location close to downtown but not right in the thick of it. There are plenty of shuttles, buses and cabs in the area. The staff was really nice, friendly and professional!! They have a really nice hot breakfast! I highly recommend you give them a try when in the area.

I've been staying at Best Western Hotels in different cities in the northeast. This was my first opportunity to stay in one in Florida near the airport since we were scheduled to fly out on the 7th. Of course, that's when the nor'easter was hitting New England and our flight was cancelled. This has to be one of the nicest Best Western hotels I've stayed at. First, the reception person at the front desk was marvelous. The personnel serving the breakfast were very good. The room was quite acceptable, everything was clean and comfortable. My only challenge was we couldn't stay a second night because it was sold out! That didn't surprise me after experiencing the hotel itself! Good place to stay!

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you so much for such a great review! We can't thank you enough for recognizing the friendly customer service, great location, and clean, comfortable accommodations.

"Dated average hotel centrally in Tampa"

15/02/2018

Sadly this hotel has seen its better days, but was ok for a one night stay. The room was clean and the front desk person friendly and accommodating. I did not see anyone else working at the hotel. When I opened the door to my room, I was met with a wall of a not so pleasant air freshener. My first instinct was that someone must have smoked in the room, but I did not notice any cigarette smell. This room just need a little upgrade, new paint, new drapes, new carpet in the hallways, a little touch up and deep cleaning of the bathub areas. A replacement of the linens would sure help too. The breakfast was average, nothing outstanding, and the breakfast room was a place to sit down, but nothing memorable. Will I come back? Well maybe if I cannot find a better option close to downtown Tampa.

My Goto hotel recently has been The Best Western....I have not had a bad experience yet....It seems like the franchise keeps a good eye on the brand and expects nothing but the best from its owners. ..The past 3 BW's i've visited were all in different Locations NJ / Miami / Tampa and all 3 seemed to be Very well in-sync with corporate standards. Ive enjoyed all visits and plan on more in the future....I would love to try new Hotels but in my last experience straying away from my normal stay at BW i was disappointed. SO until i hit the lottery or suddenly become rich ill Just stay here at the BW because for the price you get more than you pay for.

We made the reservation here last minute instead of driving back to Orlando after the Monday night Bucs game. We were a little hesitant about staying after reading negative reviews. Awesome stay and very economical!

Would stay here again and recommend to others. No problems. Nice staff. Great location. Good price for good quality room. No complaints. Older building but clean. Parking is limited but using Uber helped.

"Best Western - Tampa"

15/12/2017

I stayed here for 12 nights due to working in the area. I'd say it was pretty average. I had a few issues with some of the staff; there was confusion over how many nights that I was booked in for by my company; the reception staff assured me that I was booked in for my required duration, but the day before I was expecting to depart that turned out not to be the case. I also requested a late check out and was told 1200hrs would be fine - The cleaner turned up at 1100hrs requesting that I vacate my room. A clean and conveniently located hotel - but staff at times were not overly helpful.

palmas2013, General Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
thank you for your feedback. I was disappointed to read that you encounter some confusion during your stay at our Hotel I will personally address some of the issues with you encounter I know our front office team and housekeeping staff does everything in their power to ensure complete Guest satisfaction safe travels and Happy Holidyas

I only stayed for one night but it was great. Front staff was courteous and the waiting area was big enough to just lounge around and watch the tv. The room was well clean and enough space to move around. The hotel is near Dale Mabry and other roads but I did not hear any traffic noise. The a/c is well maintain cause turning it below 75 really cools down the room quick. The room has a nice size fridge and microwave and had enough space for my clothes in their dressers. For the bathroom they made sure to use every space. When you open the door they even made space for the door to not be in your way. If you are near the toilet though the area between the toilet, sink and bathroom is a smudge fit. The shower was of good size and the heat and cool work as they should. The breakfast area was a good size and the hot breakfast was delicious. They even had assign staff restocking the breakfast hot items when the food started to run low. I enjoyed my stay but the only thing I wish they had was more parking. For a hotel that has multiple floors its not much parking.

This was one of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever stayed in, and we stay in a lot because we are Best Western Rewards members. The location was great. Next door is an iHop, and down the street is a taco restaurant and a bakery. Also in walking distance is a beautiful Fresh Market supermarket (similar to Wegman's or Whole Foods). The hotel's free breakfast of oatmeal, yogurt, cereal, eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, and danish and was beautifully presented in a clean environment. Would definitely stay here again while visiting our daughter.

I booked a room at Best Western Tampa through bookings.com with a month of advance. Due to a problem with my credit card, the hotel cancelled my reservation without notice. If they had called/email I could have easily solved the issue but the hotel preferred to give the room to someone else. I had a late flight and was almost homeless.

Best Western, Tampa is conveniently located for Cruise participants. The rooms offer lots of space, a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and a hair dryer. Housekeeping does a great job keeping the accommodations spotless and smelling fresh. The hot breakfast is a special treat to help you start your day off right and round-the-clock coffee is a much appreciated perk.

The hall carpet is old, worn, and looks dirty. The room carpet looks like something from the 60s. The decor is ancient. The hallway smells like hydraulic fluid. The whole place seems dark. The room smells like urine. I didn't mention bugs. I saw the little guy who did the damage in the picture. Didn't catch a picture of him. He must have gone in the hole. But you can stay here. Just don't say you weren't warned.

I was looking for a hotel wherein we could sleep before our cruise, keep our car parked there for the duration of the cruise. I called the Best Western and spoke with Brandy. She was awesome! She advised that they did not have a shuttle, but we could use Uber. I booked 2 rooms. A little difficult to find the location but well worth any small difficulties. Brandy was at the front desk, she remembered making our reservations, she had a ton of useful information. The rooms were clean, the staff wonderful, our cars were safe, Uber drivers were wonderful. I highly recommend this hotel and even better was being able to park and cruise!

First note that I am a loyal Hilton Honors member and had to stay here for business purposes. It was so far under the service I am accustomed to. The lobby was small. The room was clean enough however, my toilet had issues flushing. I was on the first floor and the walls were so thin that I heard everything. The breakfast was ok but there was a tip jar out. I found that very tacky. I forgot lotion and deodorant and although the sign in the bathroom says they have toiletries, they did not have these. I will not stay here again.

We have stayed at this hotel multiple times over a few year. I feel each time it is showing the signs of age more and more. Carpets look old. We were stuck in a smoking room even though we didn't book that and it was very rough. They over-booked their rooms and our friends who pre-paid their reservation were told they couldn't stay there and had to find a new place. Bed was extremely comfortable, Eggs&Bacon for breakfast were nice.

Stayed here two nights recently and it is an excellent example of everything you expect from a Best Western property. Nice lobby and helpful front desk people who honored our room request without having to ask and gave us goody bags for being BW Rewards members. Our room was on the top (3rd) floor and was spacious with a nice high ceiling. A/C was strong. The included breakfast was perfectly satisfactory. We had one minor maintenance issue which was fixed immediately. Can't ask for more than that and we would definitely return.

This hotel really still has smoking rooms which was a priority for me. I needed to park for an extended time. Even with the Uber cost back and forth to the Airport this was a great deal.

"Rude staff, bugs & creepy"

10/07/2017

After travelling for over a day to get to Tampa a full day before our conference, we booked here. What a hassle. We had originally four of us staying in the two bed room. Two dropped out. Everyone paid one girl & we used her card to book. We called the hotel more than once before we did any of this, just to make sure there would be no trouble getting the room. The hotel transferred the room from the one who paid to one of us that was actually using the room. They did this over the phone with the hotel. Safe to say what a waste of time. When we arrived, the front desk manager insisted they needed the original credit card after all these forms had been signed to switch the booking over as directed to do by the hotel. It took over an hour for this to be resolved & it was unnecessary as this was all done in advance to avoid the hassle. The pool was disgusting. Looked like it had never been cleaned. The rooms were gross. The toilet was broken. The shower didn't get hot water. At least the maintenance man was sweet.

The customer service was great. Roberto was polite and detailed when checking me in. The breakfast was very good and really enjoyed the variety of items for the two days that we were there Our last day there, George was kind enough to help me out with a tray to take my children breakfast back to the room and was very engaged in talking with me while getting breakfast. The breakfast area was clean and someone was consistently coming in to clean up as guests were eating their meals. This Best Western was in a great location with different restaurants surrounding, Publix, CVS, and dollar tree. Not too far from Clearwater beach or the Tampa Riverwalk. Unfortunately the towels had really dirty stains and had to asked for several more towels and hand towels because they were dirty. In addition our toilet stopped up, but the young lady at the desk ( did not catch her name) came quickly and fixed the situation. Overall stay was okay. I kind of expected more, but I guess it was an overall okay stay.

Overall my stay was not terrible. I was there for 2 nights on a trip with my wife. We showed up at 11pm and the first thing I noticed was that there were only about 25 extremely tight parking spaces in a small parking lot and that was it. The hotel was pretty clean which is a huge plus in my book. The beds were rock hard and not comfortable at all. I could care less about a TV and spare chair. All I want is a nice bed since the primary reason for getting a hotel is to sleep overnight. Overall I would recommend it to someone if they want something clean and cheap. But I would warn them if the parking and beds. IF YOUR CAR IS LOWERED OR A SPORTS CAR, good luck getting in and out of the parking lot.

Nice place to stay for business people because of the location, near to the airport and convenience stores near to the hotel as well as place to lunch and dinner. Breakfast very nice (hot and cold). But also a Ihop door to door from the hotel. Highly recommend.

"Wasn't the best."

20/06/2017

When we entered the room there was a very strong smell as if someone had sprayed a very heavy room freshener. It actually gave me a headache and I had to leave the room for a short period of time. I did report this. We also had an issue with the room feeling damp/humid. When we went to bed, the sheets actually felt wet. We had to turn the AC down to 68 degrees in order to keep it from feeling even more damp. Needless to say, I was freezing all night.

palmas2013, General Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel I am sorry to hear you experience some minor issues with your room most hotel rooms in Florida will have some degree of humidity one is the humidity in the outside air, which can come in when guests leave doors open. another reason is the humidity that occurs when guests use the shower/bathtub I can reassure that hotel takes all the necessary steps to maintain all rooms as clean and fresh as possible thank you

I'd enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was less than 4 miles from Tampa General Hospital. The staff was very helpful and the food was good too...they served different variety each day. The rooms were normal and the a/c works very well!!! It's almost time for the carpet to be placed in certain areas but overall, I'd really enjoyed my stay.

"Credit card fraud"

1
12/06/2017

Stayed at the Best Western, Tampa, beginning of April for two days along with others going on a cruise. Found out when I returned home that myself and at least two others (that I know of) had fraudulent charges made on our credit cards. The only place that the card was used during the whole trip was at the Best Western. Registered a complaint/inquiry with Best Western head office and they said they wanted to take a week to check into it. After more than two weeks I checked with them and they said that they had asked the Hotel about it and was told that there wasn't a problem, so the file was closed. I suggested that asking a thief if they stole something and they answer no, then maybe the answer should be taken with a grain of salt. The file was reopened and again they wanted a week to recheck the complaint. After another two weeks with no call back, I again called head office to find out the status. They said that the hotel checked with their credit card provider and was told that there wasn't a problem, so again the file was closed. I asked if this was all Best Western was going to do about credit card fraud and was told that yes, have a nice day and thank you for staying at Best Western. I can guarantee that I will never again stay at a Best Western Hotel, anywhere, when the attitude of Head Office about criminal activity in their establishments is considered ok.

palmas2013, General Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
Dear Guest thank you for your comments we take seriously our responsibility to protect our customers' . We always pay attention to feedback we receive in this area and constantly look for ways to make improvements where necessary because this is so important to us and our customers.

Staff was nice, Beds were hard, beds were small in double room, peeling wallpaper in bathroom, carpet was grimy, no late check-out option, but breakfast was amazing. For a night stay, and price paid it wasn't horriable.

Booked a room with 2 beds over a week in advance. When I arrived, the hotel was booked and my reservation was cancelled 3 days prior but no one called me or emailed me to let me know. I was put in a smoking room with 1 bed to share with 4 people. I was not given a roll out bed or anything. Nothing was done to resolve the problem. The person at the front desk was defensive and giving me attitude when there was no reason to. the room smelled terrible and was not cleaned very well. Carpets were dirty and the room smelled very bad. Hair was in the bath tub.

palmas2013, General Manager at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review

23/05/2017

The hotel was great. The only thing that we feel that this hotel needs is an over haul in some of the areas. The hotel is on the old side so they are in need of a refreashing up course such as painting and a vent in the bathroom and the toilet paper needs a home.

"Bachelorette Party for Four"

09/05/2017

I had stayed at this property a few months prior to my friends Bachelorette party. When we decided that we would be staying in Tampa I know this hotel would be a good choice because it is centrally located to everything that we were looking for. Upon arrival I was greeted with a welcome back by Brandy who realized this was a special occasion and gave us an upgrade to a room that was a little lager and had a separate wet bar, large mini fridge with microwave. Being centrally located we had an easy time by car driving to YBOR CITY and the river walk area for dinner at Ulele. After a day and night of making memories to last a lifetime we were able to have a nice hot buffet breakfast before checking out. We had a wonderful over night stay.

Sean M, Owner at Best Western Tampa, responded to this review
We greatly appreciate your kind review and are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay for the second time! Brandi is a wonderful asset, and thank you for recognizing her in your comments. So glad to hear that you and your friends had a great time (Ulele is one of our favorites) and hope that you visit again soon!

"Don't stay here if you want a room key!"

1
21/04/2017

The keys to our room didn't work. The person at the desk came up and checked, confirmed they didn't work, and said it was no problem. We could just call him and he would come and open/shut the door whenever we wanted to enter/leave. When we asked for another room, he said he only had a double bed (our reservation was for a King). We had to specifically ask him to check again for a Queen, and discuss leaving and driving to another town, before he admitted they really did have something other than a double. If you want a key to your room, stay elsewhere.

palmas2013, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you for writing to us here at the Best western Hotel Tampa We are sorry to hear that our hotel did not meet your expectations. Regarding the issue with your hotel Key i have checked our records, and it seems that the only room available to give you was a room with two beds, rooms with a King size were not available at that time of the evening been well over 1 am often times keys get deactivated when place next to cellphones wallets etc.. how ever we always strive to provide all our guest excellent customer service again Please accept my sincere apologies.

Do no bother reserving a handicap room, we do not believe they have any! And the bathroom they do have, are smaller than the bathrooms on a cruise ship... Service is very poor.

We stay here fairly often, as our daughter lives nearby. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this place. There is nothing particularly special about it either. The rooms are decent-sized and seem clean. The breakfast is nothing special; just the basics, cereal, boiled eggs, oatmeal, a few bagels and muffins and the obligatory waffle maker. If you're looking for a place to stay in South Tampa, this Best Western is perfectly fine.

"GREAT STAY"

30/03/2017

We were looking for a Hotel that was half way between my sister in law and my niece so it would be convenient to travel to each. It was suggested that we stay at the best western. It was a great idea. Conveniently located between both their home. We were going to be in Tampa for six days so I was looking for a good hotel that could accommodate my wife and her wheelchair. I made the reservation without being able to get handicapped room. Once I received confirmation I emailed the hotel and asked if there was a possibility of getting a handicapped room if one became available and thenext day got an email from George the general manager and he stated they would make sure we got one.We arrived and sure enough we had a handicapped room with the shower that you can role the wheelchair into. All the staff(Coralia, Maria,Carmen, Jacquelin,Yaritza and Yanelis) were so great to us. The pleasant hello's and goodbye's as you come and go are a great touch and all seemed so sincere. We had one incident on our 4th night and the person on duty sprang into action and had a situation fixed before we got back from dinner that evening .They make a nice breakfast(free) in the morning and there is coffee on all day and is always fresh. The hotel is on one of the main drags but the pool is situated in the back and you don't hear any road noise . Would definitely stay here again in the future.

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review

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"

09/11/2016

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:)!!

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your kind and detailed review of our hotel! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and greatly appreciate your feedback. We are currently revamping our entire breakfast which will soon offer hot items such as bacon, eggs, sausage, etc. We typically offer at least two types of fresh fruit, so I apologize that you only had one fresh fruit option during your stay. Happy to see that you enjoyed the convenient location, hotel amenities, and hospitality. We hope to see you again soon!

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.

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!

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. Common areas (pool, exercise room, dining area) were clean. Breakfast was good, typical hotel breakfast (waffles, yogurt, cereal, fruit).

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.

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you for posting your positive review of our hotel. Glad to see that the reservation worked out and that you were able to enjoy an upgraded room after your long trip, but apologize that you had any issues in the first place. We hope to see you again soon!

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.

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.

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.

We greatly appreciate your feedback regarding your recent stay at our hotel. Our guests' comments only help us improve, and we will address any of the inconveniences you experienced while at our hotel. Like many other hotels, we are not a full-service property with a restaurant on-site, but fortunately are located within a short drive or walking distance to many great restaurant options. We are glad you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and friendly customer service. We hope to see you again!

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.

palmas2013, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you for your review i am sorry to hear that your stay at our hotel did not met your expectations. after a thorough check of your room by my housekeeping staff there was not sing of blood or mold found anywhere in the room however your feed back is extremely important to us i can assure that we will continue to work hard in providing all our guest with the out most level of cleanliness not only in our rooms but through out our building. as you know we were one of the hotels that had many of the evacuees from the storm under this difficult conditions and short notice it was difficult to accommodate everyone with the right type of bedding however i can reassure you that this is something that very rarely happens i hope you and your family have a safe trip back home and all is well in your part of the world. perhaps next time you visit Tampa Bay you would give us a second chance your stay is on us !..thank you again

We stayed at the Best Western in Tampa, Florida and found it to be a very pleasant stay. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The room was very nice and roomy. Nice decor. We enjoyed the fitness room and the kids loved the pool and the T.V and the selection of channels on the TV.

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!

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Well, we are happy to see that you enjoyed the convenient location, customer service, comfortable accommodations, and especially the excellent price point offered for a hotel that is conveniently located so close to downtown and other points of interests in Tampa.

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

19/09/2016

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.

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.

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"

15/07/2016

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.

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
I was called in by my general manager to help resolve the alleged issue our guest had reported. When I arrived the police were there and asking questions. The guest had already left, and I was informed of the situation by the two police officers and my general manager. We then called Kaba Ilco's technical support to get help auditing the door's lock. Kaba Ilco is the manufacturer of our electronic door locking devices. After auditing the lock, we discovered that no one's key, other than the guest's key, opened the door after the guest was let in earlier that morning. We then downloaded the report to a thumb drive and provided the police officers a copy to take with them to review. We fully cooperated with the authorities and to this date, we have not heard from the police since the alleged incident. I have owned this property for 12 years and have never had an incident like this happen. If there was sufficient proof of wrong doing, I would terminate the responsible person immediately and attempt to correct the issue. If further action is required, I fully intend to cooperate to resolve this matter. I regret that our guest had a negative experience and hope she would consider staying with us again in the future.

Once again Jean and the Best Western on South Dale Mabrey was a live saver during another hospital stay of a family member. The whole staff, Jean and the manager George are truly incredible and really go all out to help the customers. It is our second long stay there in a year and I can't say enough about the whole package except that overall it is a good value, and the staff are great. Thanks Again for being there when we needed you.

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
I can't thank you enough for your wonderful feedback about our staff and specifically what you said about Jean and George. Both are tremendous assets to our hotel, and it's always a pleasure to see that our customers appreciate their willingness to go the extra mile. I will certainly pass along the kind words to both Jean and George, as well as the rest of the staff. If you are in the area again, please make sure to see us!

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.

The staff at this hotel are wonderful. The room was clean and a good size. I guess the only complaint i would have would be the size of the bathroom. It was very small. Other than that, the breakfast was good and the girl in the breakfast room was very upbeat and helped you start your day happily.

Sean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your positive review, one that we will certainly share with our staff. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the hotel amenities, customer service, and room, but apologize that you were not pleased with the size of the bathroom. The bathrooms vary in size based on the space allotted for each guest room. While most are quite spacious, there are a few that are smaller in square footage. We do hope to see you again soon!

BWT hotel is by far a great value ! The rooms are neat and spiffy. The pillows are numerous and the bed is firm. I especially enjoyed breakfast, filled with great choices including pan cakes and fresh fruit...Coffee bar 24/7 in the lobby. The pool and exercise room are well equipped with fresh soft towels...Best of all is the is the great bilingual staff who are helpful and professional....The location is close to shopping, restaurants, stadiums to the airport.....I highly recommend BWT and say hello to George the manager

"Disappointment"

10/05/2016

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!

Front desk was friendly and I had a very fast check in and check out. Room was clean and as expected. Breakfast consisted of 1 type of bagel, English muffins, cereal, pancakes, yogurt, and bananas. Only drawbacks were the tiny bathrooms and parking spaces.

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

Thank you for sharing your feedback from your stay we appreciate your kind words regarding our staff location and the cleanliness of our rooms however we are saddened to hear the you encounter and issue with our carpets been humid due the Hotel been shampooed because of our location and popularity our hotel is always full so there is never a good time month or time of the year to do this, we clean our rooms every 90 days so we can provide all our guest with clean and fresh rooms I hope next time you visit Tampa you give us a chance again and choose to stay with stay

This is a great hotel....clean and nicely decorated with very friendly staff (thanks Jean). They suggested a nearby restaurant (1 Square), which was excellent as well (even offered a coupon). The breakfast was sufficient, with staff that kept it stocked and the area very clean. I would stay here again and suggest others give it a try.

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)

palmas2013, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Tampa, responded to this review
thank you for sharing we appreciate your honest feed back the rooms with large hot tubs in them have a small walk in showers in order to compensate for space we do have remote controls at the front desk in order to set up games etc.. we are saddened to hear that there other issues with the room we will certainly look into them and take corrective measures as soon possible hope to see you back at our Hotel soon

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!"

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).

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.

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.

Compared to other hotels in the area this Best Western had the some of the best reviews. Although our first room had some issues, we knew going in that this was only for one night. The hotel staff was extremely accomodating.

Good people, good prices but the breakfast could be beefed up a bit. Nice location. A great place to stay, quiet, clean and a very nice pool. Parking is easy and safe. There are restaurants near if one is required.

My Wife & I stayed here recently before our cruise & were very happy with our stay. We were unexpectedly given a room with a hot-tub that we definitely enjoyed! The check-in & check-out went smoothly & quickly. The employees greeted us during our stay with smiles & were very professional. 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.

"Quick Overnight Stay"

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.

"Bad Odor"

Upon arrival we noticed a terrible odor in the hotel but since it was previously booked a refund was not an option. Our room had so much deodorant in it we had to keep our door open to air it out since the windows don't open.

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!

This was a great escape for me after a grueling and depressing week. I left feeling refreshed and renewed and ready to take on all obstacles. The location of the IHOP next door was a great incentive. I quickly learned my way around that area of Tampa and found a Walmart and Target but, I decided I just wanted to enjoy being in the room.

Nice short term stay hotel close to airport and Tampa sights with a very friendly staff, only drawback is they do not serve breakfast which is beneficial to early risers. Would recommend to friends with a suggestion to be alert for the fameous toll highways.

Excellent location with downtown activities nearby. Old hotel, but clean with a nice enclosed outdoor atrium. Minimal parking in the immediate outside area. Friendly staff, indoor rooms, but can be a bit loud at night.
