“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Our family of 9 stayed here for our vacation, and this hotel was excellent. Great customer service from check in to check out. The rooms were nice and clean. Breakfast was an added bonus. We utilized the shuttle to and from Bush Gardens and Adventure Island. I give this place a 5 star!

We purchased the snooze and cruise package was was extremely pleased other than the hour and half wait for a ride back to the hotel after the cruise. The hotel was great and the staff very helpful in providing a printer and stapler to print and attach our cruise luggage tags. The room was a nice large suite and extremely clean. The free breakfast was amazing. I would definitely stay again.

Thank you ‘Laura316’ for writing a review of your recent stay with us. We’re glad to hear that you took advantage of our Snooze and Cruise package which is a great way to start off your cruise! This package includes Free Parking while on your cruise and Transportation to the cruise terminal. And you also get to spend the night in one of our gorgeous suites here at the Comfort Suites. Don’t forget that you also get a complimentary breakfast too. Talk about all inclusive!
I would like to apologize for the delayed pick-up time from the terminal. As we offer this package, a lot of guests take advantage of it and we try to pick up as many people as we can per run. But you can rest assured that we will bring you to your vehicle as promptly as possible.
We are so glad that we could serve you during your time in the Tampa area. We hope that you will allow us the honor again in the near future. See you soon!

We just returned from our stay (5 nights) at the Comfort Suites and what a wonderful stay it was! The staff was most helpful and willing to go out of their way to make sure the guests are happy. They offer a shuttle service to the casino, Bush Gardens and a few of the restaurants. This hotel is smoke-free and you can tell. Everything smells fresh! Upon check in they offer a list of things to do and local restaurants complete with driving directions. The rooms are clean, beautiful and very comfortable. Set up is different with a decorative divider between the sitting area and the bed. Each room has a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Did I mention that the rooms are clean....I have a thing about checking the corners in the bathrooms......this room was clean! They offer breakfast and the woman in charge of the area is on top of everything. No matter how early or late we showed up, everything was in order. It is standard breakfast fare but more than enough to satisfy. Coffee is available 24/7. This is going to sound silly but the our only complaint was the quality of their plastic ware. They just need to upgrade a little so the knives don't bend when you try to cut something! The location of the hotel is perfect for sightseeing. Don't miss Tarpon Springs, Ybor City, Sunken Gardens or a chance to ride the Streetcar. We do want to thank Hector and the girl who drove the shuttle for being so nice. They are definitely an asset to the hotel.

Green Features: Love the fact that this a completely smoke-free facility. Everything smells fresh!

The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. The free breakfast every morning was wonderful to have, especially for the kids. We received excellent care from all of the hotel staff. We used the shuttle to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island and it helped save money for parking. Jahaira was amazing at the front desk. Anytime we had questions she was quick to help. We had 3 adults and 2 kids and the room was big enough for everyone to be comfortable. If there is an event going on at the fair grounds the traffic is a little hard to get through, but we found different routes to avoid most of it. I loved that is was a smoke free hotel. We would definitely stay again!

The hotel was clean. They served a continental breakfast daily which was Sausage, eggs , Waffles , various cereal , bananas, bagels and juices. The room wasn't very big me and my family of 4 were on top of each other. If you have 2 small kids the hotel room will be great no so good for 3 adults and a teenager.

This is the best hotel to stay at for concerts at the Amp! We check in, walk across the street, don't pay for parking, and then we can enjoy the concert experience without needing a DD or a cab. It is very well maintained property with kind courteous staff. We love the free breakfast :)

Thank you ‘Anne W’ for this great review of your recent stay with us. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay while attending a concert at the Amphitheatre located across the street. Staying with us does make it easier for you to enjoy your concert worry free since we’re only a walk away from the venue. Don’t forget about the Free Hot Deluxe Breakfast the next morning!
