“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Very clean and nicely appointed hotel. Staff extremely friendly and they appreciate their customers. Will stay here again when in the area. Like most free breakfasts offered by hotels it leaves a lot be desired.

Thank you Larry51347 for leaving a nice review for our hotel! We certainly hope to see you again the next time you are in the Clearwater/St. Petersburg area. The Fairfield Inn brand now has a hot breakfast buffet and has made great strides to offer a good variety of breakfast items. We hope that during your next visit we can find an offering that you would enjoy more. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel!

My husband and I stayed in this hotel the night before a cruise. The room was clean, cool, and comfortable. The free breakfast was much appreciated. The location was convenient to the Tampa Bay Rays stadium, where we were able to catch a game the night before getting on the ship.

was in town for vacation/rays game and the location is good to the tampa area while keeping prices down. area on the highway in front of the hotel is undergoing a major construction project which causes the area to be quite busy and loud. the hotel itself is nice with a full breakfast and a great place to run a couple of streets down into an area near the clearwater airport. the only thing i didn't like (besides the construction) was the smokers at the pool area. i used the pool in the mornings but there was always one women who would bring breakfast outside and inhale the food and smoked like 3 cancer sticks in 10 minutes. wish there was an area away from the pool and tables for the smokers...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! I am happy to hear that your overall experience with us was a pleasurable one. I do apologize for the smoking that was going on by the pool and wanted to let you know we have since added additional no smoking signs in that area to prevent this from happening in the future. We hope you will come back again the next time you are in town for a game!

Stayed here four nights for a mini getaway. Close to beaches and NHL hockey game in Tampa, saw the Maple Leafs game against the Lightning . Great dining all around, and shopping.
Very welcoming, breakfast good., cookies and coffee at night, fresh water with orange slices available all day. Staff very nice , and a quiet place to stay.

Room Tip: All good, just ask for a room away from the evevators

Stayed here for a business trip since it was close to where I was visiting. I have stayed here before and its a clean place. They serve free breakfast in the mornings which is a plus and have free Wi-Fi. The rooms are adequate size and very clean. The issue I had was as I took a shower and the tub didn't drain fast enough thus the sand from the drain floated into the tub, other than that it was a good experience. The hotel is close to Tampa airport, maybe 20 minute drive, which is convenient. The computer and printer in the lobby is also convenient for printing boarding passes.
There are many hotels, within a two mile radius; Marriott, Courtyard, Hilton etc. but cost way more, great value for you money but its not a luxurious hotel by any means.

My wife & I moved to this hotel after checking out early from our stay at a nearby HI Express, which was a dump.... The staff at the Fairfield Inn was great, they made us feel welcome from the first time we walked through the door, helping us to change rooms to one with a refrigerator, providing directions & dinner suggestions. Breakfast was good, well stocked and good amount of choices. Thursday night was the manager's cocktail hour, with free wine/beer & snacks. We got a chance to meet the General Manager. The staff is highly involved and cares about the guests, We were very happy at this stay and plan on maxing out Marriott Rewards points in the future, instead of having hit & miss experiences at the competitors hotels.

Room Tip: advise of special requests., such as refrigerator or microwave, by phone after you make your on-line...

This was a nice, clean place to stay for a month of business. The breakfast is good (eggs and sausage and all the continental stuff). The rooms were clean and it is a convenient location. The staff is friendly and they upgraded me to a king suite as they should have without me asking. I would recommend this hotel if your in the area
