Stayed at the hotel from April 3 to the 6 prior to our cruise. We got our room with a Friends & Family rate which was very affordable and included breakfast. Had I paid rack rate I would of have been very disappointed. It is an older property and the rooms show that. Staff were all very nice, lobby was... More

They can't fix location but if they charge double they can stay in business. Clarion Tampa on Fowler forget it !!! Now, We stay @ Embassy Suites. They know how to do it right .(Just in front... More

It's an older facility, but it's being taken care of. Facilities are great -- nice pools, lobby, breakfast center (with good breakfast). But the noise enters the rooms from the parking lot, from the walkway outside, from the rooms next door.

I walked into this hotel after a bad first impression at another hotel I had reserved a couple blocks away. The agents at the desk were very friendly and helped me get the best available rate. Our room was near the pool. The pool was very sizable and was heated. They also had a separate area for kids to play.... More

When you first arrive, the outside and surrounding location don't look promising. The lobby and pool area are nice, however, the room isn't the greatest. The decor is older and my room wasn't very clean. However, the price was ok for Tampa, which tends to be pricey for some reason.

Purchased through Priceline. However, hotel charged my credit card for the stay also, resulting in a double charge for the room. After a few weeks of contacting the hotel and Priceline, the second charge still has not been credited back. So I must continue to waste my time to correct. This Clarion is VERY poorly managed with no accountability (disgusting... More

My family and I stayed towards the end of February to go to Busch Gardens. The Staff were VERY accommodating and courteous. Breakfast is free with the room, and was very good. The hotel is close to EVERYTHING and you could walk to get anything you need as there are several supermarkets, restaurants, drug stores, and even a mall across... More

Friends had recommended this ``hotel`` to us, and the rates were low. Arrived to find the room disgusting. The carpet was heavily soiled, lamp broken, shower filthy and rusty. The air was musty, damp and very smoky. My family felt unsafe, nauseous and had a hard time even looking at the horrible décor. When I brought this up with the... More
