“Snooze&Cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Booked our room with Choice Hotels just for the convenience of Snooze&Cruise since we were leaving the following morning for a Tampa Cruise. Room was very nice...loved the bed...hated the pillows. Bath was very comfortable and clean. Room was very nice and quiet. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed at the Tampa Quality Inn for a pre-cruise overnight stay and to take their reasonably priced shuttle to the pier. The rooms and beds are comfy, the staff is friendly (kudos to Joe at the front desk and David the driver) and the complimentary breakfast is a nice touch. The location is excellent with a Publix down the street so you don't need to drive to pick up groceries/snacks/alcoholic beverage. Having a frig and microwave in the room is a great bonus and we plan on staying there multiple days when we travel to Tampa for the next cruise - we'll probably even take advantage of the pool!. As one of the staff stated "..the Quality Inn is like an 80 bedroom bed and breakfast..".

Room Tip: We had a first floor room which wasn't noisy but some people are more fussy then us.

We had 3 families coming from various locations to stay overnight before a cruise. Although the property is dated and nowhere near the airport, it was reasonably priced and the free shuttle from the airport was much appreciated by all the family members. Staff were friendly and helpful and a shuttle to the port for our cruise was easily arranged the next day. Room amenities are good - mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and free WIFI. We were referred to a good restaurant next door the evening we arrived and a more than adequate breakfast was included in the price the next morning. The only issues we had were that the rooms are very dark since you need to keep the curtains shut so that other guests walking by won't look in and that other guests were standing around outside smoking and carrying on very loudly. Apart from that, the property was good value for the price paid.

FUGETABOUT the Quality Airport on Dale Maybry! We had an advanced reservation although this hotel was booked on Friday nite for a convention in Tampa. We ate at Mise En Place for the best meal and ambiance possible! Took in The Jersey Boys at the Straz Center! What a perfect Evening! Mistake was changing my room from 1st floor to 2nd at check in. Our absent minded front desk clerk did not enter us in the box after key card issue! Getting back to our room a bit after 11pm we had a hard time getting to sleep as you are near an intersection on Dale Maybry! Lots of traffic noise with late nite rice burner racing! Chasing the bikers are those crusiers with sirens! About 12:30am we have someone trying to enter our room with a key card! Without opening door I let him know he had the wrong room. Through our closed door he apologized saying front desk gave him this room! Ten minutes later front desk called "Sorry to bother you sir but can you tell me your name? HEY WE CHECKED IN AT 3PM TODAY? So sorry sir could you please verify your phone number at check in? So sorry to bother you!!!!! Needless to say we didn't sleep much after that!!!! Front desk didn't warn us that our key cards will not work tomorrow morning because our room was sold to someone else so we were locked out after breakfast! We did get a $15 refund, "BIG DEAL" they should have refunded the ENTIRE ROOM FEE!!!!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!

We purchased the park and cruise package. We spent the night and the next day, the hotel's van took us directly to the cruise port. When we returned, we called and they were there within 15 minutes. Cost for one night and transportation and parking at the hotel was about $168. Definitely worth it. They drop you off right at the terminal. No extra walking from the parking garage. The hotel was very nice and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was above average. Definitely will stay there again next time cruising from Tampa.

Our stay in your Quality Inn in Tampa Fla was a very good experience. We had to have our rental car back at the airport before 8:00a.m. so the closeness of the Airport was very important to us. The staff was very helpful in providing a map and verbal instruction to get to the airport. Also the proimity to the Catholic church was accross the street and we were there for Ash Wednesday.

We stayed here before and after our cruise. It was a nice location in a safe neighborhood. We flew in and were picked up quickly by the hotel shuttle service. The shuttle to the port cost $8 per person and dropped us off in front of the door where our luggage was picked up. Great service and the drivers were very informative. After the cruise we rented a car from Enterprise and were picked up by Enterprise at the port and then stayed here for 2 more nights with free parking. As others have said the interior is dated but so am I so this was OK. The bed was comfoprtable. The only drawback was that the edge of the curtain didn’t cover the window well at night and the light outside the window shone in. We used masking tape to remedy this and Velcro strips could probably fix the problem. The room included a refrigerator and microwave which was nice even though we didn’t need it. It was good to be able to get a first floor room on the second stay and park our car right outside making getting our luggage in the room easy. During our first stay we were upstairs and although there was an elevator we had to navigate a few stairs after getting off the elevator with our luggage. There was a very nice restaurant in the next parking lot, GrillSmith (check on Google street view to see it) About 2 blocks away was a Publix where we bought our bottles of wine for the cruise. When I broke one of them Valerie who was at the desk directed me to the Fresh Market just through the back parking lot. The staff were all helpful especially Joey and Valerie who were very friendly. There was a small but nice outdoor heated pool. The free breakfast was good but I would agree with someone who said the area was small and crowded. All in all it was a good value and I would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Take first floor especially if you have a car.
