There so called shuttle system is the biggest joke of my life. Their sheets are disgusting. There are college students everywhere. They are loud and very disruptive. There are piles of trash on certain floors. I have found multiple roaches in my room. They never changed the sheets they only remade my bed. Everything is extremly out dated and is... More

I recently checked into the Barrymore Hotel in Tampa, Florida and was very impressed with the service I received. I believe the woman checking me in was named Vanderlyn. Her welcoming attitude was a much needed gesture after a long day of traveling. Thank you.

I stayed at the Barrymore on 1/15/15. My room was infested with roaches. I don't mean one two. They were everywhere and crawled on me in my sleep. It was had to find my room since many of the room number plates were missing. The wifi is free so they've got that going for them.

I read reviews that said this hotel was outdated but clean. It was outdated but it wasn't clean. And we killed at least 10 roaches during our one night stay. The service was ok, but we did only have 3 towels in a room meant for 4 (and were reserved the room for 5). Unless you like roaches, stay elsewhere.

Stayed here on a business trip, looking for a reasonably priced hotel near downtown. This IS the place. It is across the street from the arts center, and blocks from the center of town. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 because it is an old building, well maintained, but does not have marble floors, and other amenities a higher... More

This was a disappointing hotel in general. The guest rooms are very outdated, small and have a musty smell. The air conditioning does not work that well. Most importantly though is the fact that the bathrooms are VERY small (one person only) and the electrical outlet in my bathroom did not work and when I attempted to push the reset... More

The hotel has a great location. Next to the river. Only 10/15 minutes walk to the restaurants and stuff. Staff at the front desk was kind and helped us out with finding some good restaurants. The room was spacious and clean. Nice big tv and fridge. We had a room on the 11th floor with a nice view over downtown/river.... More

Booked at Expedia and got a better rate thatn the hotel website. Paid 95 dollars plus taxes and fees. I took the #30 HART bus from TPA and walked up the Riverwalk to the hotel (one half mile). The room was nice. Had a 14th floor room facing downtown and the river. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Staff was... More

First of all, the customer service was great, we did not meet one employee that did not have a fabulous attitude! The rooms were clean, beds very comfortable and during our stay it was very quiet. The only cons are the bathrooms, which were quite small and desperately needed updating and the parking could have been better. Overall, a great... More
