This hotel has the perfect location for people who are visiting local amusement parks and other attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. They have a great pool and it is never too crowded. The best part about this hotel is the included breakfast at the restaurant found in the hotel. In... More

Me and my boyfriend went to a concert in Tampa with some friends. I needed a hotel close to the MidFlorida Amphitheater, so we stayed at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. It was the best choice I ever made! Not only was it 10 min away from where the event was, but its also really close to Busch Gardens... More

Was totally caught off guard when the desk person was rude and talked to me as if I was an idiot Upon informing her that I would never stay here again, she informed me that she had been here 3 years and if I chose to not stay here "that's how it is". Needles to say I will not be... More

Also use this hotel for an overnight after visiting Busch Gardens and the Museum of Science industry, hotel rooms and sourroundings are verry outdated, but the location is the best, shopping and dining options are two steps away, the Lobby and Check in was fine. The only thing was that the Breakfast personel was verry rude and seemed very unhappy,... More

I knew going in this was not going to be 5 star accommodations. The room was clean but shabby. My kids LOVED the pool. They spent several hours there. It needs some updating, but seemed clean and safe. The kids had fun in the pirate area. Breakfast was okay. It filled our stomachs and got us on our way. You... More

the room was ok. the furniture was really old. I really didn't feel comfortable taking a shower. The tub didn't look so clean. Some of the towels they left in the room wasn't clean. they looked dingy. I wouldn't come back to this hotel again. No elevators . had a room upstairs wasn't fun walking up and down stairs

We started our in-state vacation in Tampa from Fort Myers. We selected the Clarion Hotel due to it being pet friendly, location and overall cost. The dates of our stay was 06/27/2015pm through 06/29/2015am. We arrived early (called front desk to notify them we would) and entered a pleasant lobby. We got there about 1 ½ hour before check-in time.... More

My family and I stayed here from Thursday-Saturday morning 4th of July weekend. Check in was fine, the front desk gave us a map & breakfast tickets. After bringing our baggage in we were headed over to the restaurant and a security guard was walking through with full armed gear on, that's when things got weird. Shady people peaking out... More
