5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2010

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The beds were really comfortable, room was clean and well equiped. The small refrigerator and microwave was a really nice touch. The pool area is clean and well kept and the free breakfast was wonderful. I will stay there again. They even have a shuttle service. Everyone extremely nice!

This is by far not the worst place I've ever stayed. The facility seems new, it's well designed, the service is pleasant & helpful, and the continental breakfast is robust. It was also conveniently located to our meeting site, although that doesn't say much for other tourists or visitors to the Tampa area.

My room however was a bit iffy. While it was comfortable, clean, and attractive, I awoke to find hives/itchy bumps on my legs the next morning when I got up. Eww, right?

The worst part however, was the noise. After shutting off the TV, I realized I heard a dripping sound emanating from the air conditioner. The condensation had formed a puddle on the floor, and the dripping into the puddle was some what annoying. I got over it though, and began trying to doze off. Then I kept hearing a cracking noise. It was sporadic, and occasionally jarring. It continued at 10-20 minute intervals throughout the night, repeatedly waking me up. Around 3 a.m. I flipped on the light, to see if I could assess what the noise was. Upon inspection, I noticed the entire front of the air conditioner was covered in ICE. The ice was loudly popping and cracking as it melted and froze, melted and froze, the entire night. I finally had to resort to stuffing a pillow over my head to drown out the continuous racket.

I would likely stay somewhere else the next time I'm in Tampa. It surprises me that it is ranked as the #1 place to stay.

The service was wonderful at the Comfort Suites Fairgrounds. All of the employees and managers were always pleasant and helpful. The hotel is right across from the Florida State Fairgrounds and very close to many large shopping areas. The hotel offers a shuttle for close trips, which was very helpful being in the area without a car. The staff went out of their way to assist me in finding a certain store that I needed and graciously drove me there at no charge.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, very comfortable, the large 37" TV was great! They serve a hot breakfast plus a lot of other healthy choices if desired. I enjoyed everything about my stay and will recommend Comfort Suites to all of my friends.

My husband and I attended a concert at the fairgrounds. This hotel was decorated beautifully, had customer service friendly staff. Definitely will go back again! We have already recommended it to friends who attended the same concert.

This hotel is amazing if you are staying in Tampa you HAVE to stay at this property. Incredible beds, amazing bathrooms and just a beautiful hotel, from the time we checked in to check out we were impressed all the way. You can’t beat the price it is worth every penny, best value in town. If you are staying anywhere in the Tampa area you must stay here it is worth the drive, this property is the BEST hotel I ever stayed AT!!!!!!

I don't ever stay in choice hotels like the comfort suites but this one comes highly recommended! The rooms were wonderful, spacious and the beds were just right! I did not want to get up for work the next day just wanted to sleep in for a few more hours! Staff, management all wonderful! The only terrible experience was the "love bugs" we did not know exist in florida! they were like the invasion of the body snatchers so do not visit the area in May and September, aside from that this will be the place to stay one will not regret it! and I pray the owner/management keep up the good work to keep the hotel in the excellent, clean state it is in today. 5/21/10
