This is the only hotel that my family and I stay at whenever we are in Tampa visiting with our family. This is a very family friendly hotel and is very conveniently located next to EVERYTHING! They provide an EXCELLENT breakfast and the kids love the pirate ship area. It's perfect for the little ones who are unable to stand... More

We got a deal on our room through Hotwire. $54 a night. After a long day at the water park, all we wanted was a place to relax and our room was wonderful. Very clean, fridge, microwave, comfy beds. Looks recently updated. We were very pleased.

We stayed at the Clarion and had a good experience. The hotel is located very close to Busch Gardens. Also TGIF is next door and across the street is a Chili's, Jason's Deli and a Sweet Bay grocery store so we did not have to travel far for dinner. The hotel had a nice breakfast for the whole family. I... More

My experince: Everyone knows to remove valuables from their vehicle. Did you also know that you cannot enjoy the pool area without the threat of theft? Well, that is the standard at the "security patrolled" Clarion Tampa. I was at the pool wth my child. I had two towels which I laid on a chair. We were in the water... More

When I booked this hotel I solely depended on people's reviews of the hotel and the pictures they had taken. The only thing that people were right about was that Busch Gardens was very close, everything else was terrible. The rooms are substandard, My wife could not walk outside without getting called by men as if they were at the... More

We priceline at least once a month. I have NEVER given a negative review before. I am sorry, but that trend is going to have to change after our stay at the Clarion in Tampa. The lobby was very nice...... can't say the same for the front desk. As I went to check in there were two different people there... More

I felt like I was sent to a tropical environment. However, I expected a suite to have two rooms. But then again, I think the jacuzzi tub made up for it. The staff was very kind, helpful, and polite. The continental breakfast was a little on the dry side.

the location was great, close to attractions. Room was very disappointing. Carpet was very dirty, room had an odor, definetely needs some updating and renovation. The pool and waterfall outside was beautiful and well taken care of. The front desk receptionist was extremely wonderful. We had booked online and she couldn't find our reservation but gave us our rooms at... More
