The best location ever, walking distance from the best restaurants, and atractions. The room was very clean, friendly staff, and two pools areas. Great experience, We will come back.

I gave this an "average" only because of the pool area. It was wonderful. Two pools, one heated one with a ship & waterfall...beautiful. But the rooms? TERRIBLE! Not happy! We checked in to our room & I noticed it was shabby, but we left right away...when we came back I noticed it smelled. Looked around closer, besides the stains... More

We stayed at the Clarion from January 11 - 16, 2012, to visit friends who had recently moved into the University Village complex (0.9 miles from our room!). Our king-size bed was very comfortable, and the room had many more electrical outlets (and most had additional extension cords attached) than the average hotel room, which we found very convenient. It... More

We stayed here from 1/31 to 2/4 to visit some relatives in the Tampa area. The room was comfortable but they were 2 double beds, not 2 Queen beds. Very soft, squishy pillows(which I love) 4 to each bed. The maid service was during our breakfast buffet so when we came back from breakfast our room was ready for the... More

I stay at the Choice Hotel Chain a number of times per year. I selected this location based on my previous experiences with Clarion Hotels in other areas. The lobby area was nice and business center is okay but once I was given my room key then I drove to the location of the room. It has only outside entries.... More

Very friendly and accommodating staff, great pool area with a real nice kids' pirate ship and wading pool, delicious hot breakfast and free wi-fi.

My husband and I had a nice vacation, staying at the Clarion Hotel in Tampa. The room was large, clean and the bed was comfortable. The pool was heated. The inner courtyard was beautiful and made you feel like you were at a resort. The breakfast that was served was excellent. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We selected... More

Great breakfast and location. We selected this hotel because it was near USF, Bush Garden and the mall. The mall is located across the street. We will stay here again. I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends.
