On the good side, this is probably the best Quality Inn I have seen in ages. It was extremely clean and had no odor at all. The room was well furnished and the bed was excellent. We were very pleased with the place. The breakfast area was large, well lit and furnished with about anything you wanted. The Wi-Fi was... More

The hotel staff is absolutely wonderful and cares about their customers. Murphy works the night shift, he is very caring and very helpful! I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me while I was there! The rooms are clean and updated. If I ever came back to Tampa this would be the hotel I would stay at... More

I read other reviews that spoke highly of this hotel, and they were right! Nice location, clean rooms, fine staff, GREAT beds! The location near downtown and other main thoroughfares made travel in and out a snap. Fine hosts and hotel professionals!

Though TripAdvisor has never done me wrong, I was concerned about this one. It is not in the best part of town and this remains the only reason, I would never rate it 5 stars. Otherwise, this place is an unbelievable home run and their attention to security overcame any concern we had for safety. They had two patrolling cars... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night after our Cruise on the Norwegian Sun before flying back home. They do offer a shuttle to the Tampa Port for Cruise arrivals and departures so you can save a few dollars by using this service. No shuttle to the airport from this location.They also offer free parking if you stay at... More

New and very clean with a good breakfast. I was worried about the neighborhood but the hotel environs seem very nice and safe and I was surprised how close and convenient it is to local areas and downtown. Especially enjoyed visiting Ybor City for dinner right down the street. Another Priceline score! The price and quality will be tough to... More

This hotel is reasonably close to Busch Gardens (this park I cannot say enough good things about!!). There is another Quality Inn closer I believe but I believe all hotels you will have to drive to anyways. Though the neighborhood is not great, the staff make up for this many times over. This hotel has no frills but the breakfast... More

One of the best places during our trip. Very friendly staff and we got a quiet room as requested facing away from the highway. Big room and recently upgraded with friendly wall colors, granite in the bathroom and very comfy beds made us feel at home. Breakfast was also above average and plenty. Overall a great stay and definitely would... More

First before I rave...it is surrounded by a rough neighborhood. But the property is safe. The hotel is impeccable...new (high end) decor, comfortable beds, clean, great pool area, well stocked bathroom, big breakfast and friendly staff. We'd stay here again and recommend it to others. The only negative is one of the wings is close to the freeway and you... More

My party of 15 booked 4 rooms at this hotel for one night prior to a cruise. After reading reviews here I wasn't sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pool area was amazing, and the pool was heated as advertised. The rooms were quite nice, and the beds were nice and soft. Breakfast was way better... More
