We booked 2 rooms for the weekend of August 14th. We had to cancel one room on Thursday due to my husband's illness. My daughter and grandchildren still wanted to go to Busch Gardens. I was told they would still have the room we requested downstairs poolside, and could have a roll away for the 3rd child who was supposed... More

my boyfriend and I were really impressed with the bedroom size and the amenities that came along with our stay however we were not made aware that the wristbands they gave to us were 20 dollars a piece if we lost them. I felt like that was a seriously rip off and unfair to me being that I didn't know... More

We were given a map to our room on check-in then spent 10 minutes trying to find our room. There is no directional signage to assist with room location. They are currently "renovating." They have a very long way to go! There are electrical outlets without covers, unattached/drooping covers over cable outlets, stair rails are loose, pathways are dangerously uneven.... More

As far as I'm concerned, if your part of the USF community or looking at a convenient location near USF you can't beat the Clarion. I've stayed there on a number of occasions recently. At first, check-in was a little slow but as long as someone is answering the phone and someone else is checking guests in, things move rather... More

The hotel is a little run down but the pool area was large and nicely kept. The front desk personnel were pleasant and very helpful. The rooms were clean but as I mentioned before are a little run down and need some maintenance.

Requested early check in, got in at 1pm. Requested late check out, got out at noon. Breakfast is busy and tasty, go early! Room was clean. Nothing fancy. They do have microwaves and mini fridges for your convenience as well. If you want to ensure a Gr8 stay, book your room with Daisy at that location. Professional and courteous to... More

We asked for a ground floor and they immediately accommodated our request at check-in. We were attended by two receptionists Tikisha and Paul, whom we found to be friendly and welcoming. They look like they love what they do!

A spontaneous weekend getaway to the Tampa area resulted in several pleasant surprises that I'm not soon to forget. This jewel of a hotel, practically hidden within the urban sprawl and high rise hotels that dominate this predominately tourist area, was indeed a special treat to visit. The staff was courteous and helpful, the room was tastefully decorated and clean,... More
