“Five Nights - AOK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I have been here before and have reviewed it before. This review is based on a stay from June 10-15, 2014.

It's older but kept nicely. When in South Tampa I will typically go here. It's reasonably priced and an excellent value on balance. King Size Room, Non-Smoking with a Fridge and a Microwave. Parking near your door in a secured parking lot.

They have changed their housekeeping staff since I was here in January 2014 and frankly liked the old crew better. The new crew is OK but they are loud and slow. That interfered a number of times with my schedule.

The free Wi-Fi is adequate based on the speed Test (Photo Provided)

A number of people have mentioned the Pillows. For some reason the whole Choice Hotel Group uses this 4 or 5 piece square pillow setup. In the USA we use rectangular pillows and these square thingys are hard for people to get used to. If I'm alone in a King I make do, but when I have a companion I have to ask for more pillows. You should do the same if you have an issue.

The Breakfast is the Standard Choice Hotel Group fare and it is served correctly and the staff keeps everything full and ready for a heavy guest load.

South Tampa can be very expensive and this location provides an excellent value. If you're in the area and are budget conscious you will find this works very well.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights during a conference. The room was clean and spacious. Hotel staffs were quite friendly and helpful. It is conveniently located near a couple of good restaurants. The breakfast was really better, I must say, compared to other hotels with same price ! It is not located near the convention center, but a cab can take you there within 10 minutes.

After having stayed at a somewhat dodgy motel the previous night, me and 5 other friends rented a couple of rooms for a night's stay.

We were pleasantly surprised, the hotel offered great facilities, a nice pool area and friendly staff.

The rooms were clean and spacious. We had two 4 person bedrooms (two doubles in each), and the bathrooms and A/C were great.

Given the price, it is a little more expensive than some other motels in the area but for good reason.

A little dumpy inside, dirty carpeting, mold in the caulking around sink.
Breakfast OK, staff reasonably friendly but no one wants to go out of their way.
Checked in a little later and all went well.
The driver from the airport from hotel was wonderful.
He was friendly and knowledgable. Warned us of problematic traffic areas when we returned for our car.
Nice convenience they offered ,minimum cost for parking if u stay over night and fly out or go on a cruise. Drop off and pick up services were prompt.

Room Tip: Asked for a handicapped room , did not have a walk-in shower but big enough for wheelchair accommo...

We got to the hotel around 3:00 am. The clerk said he didn't have a reservation for us.. turns out my credit card never approved, therefore they never received payment. They still sent me confirmations however. The shower was so nasty that we decided to wait until our cruise to shower, the beds were decent, room smelled terrible, the curtains didn't cover the whole window so it was very light in the room which made it hard to get our daughter to sleep. All in all, it was a bad experience. The staff was nice, location was great and the price wasn't too terrible but I would never stay here again.

Put lipstick on a pig and it's still a pig ! This is a renovated old motel with a nice fresh coat of paint. Really small room and dated tiny bath. Window unit air conditioner was noisy. Staff was friendly, couldn't try breakfast buffet because the hospitality room was too small, too crowded with not enough tables to serve all. Not a good value, but was convenient to airport.

Juan, the guest services person was more than helpful from the time he gave me precise directions as to where to go to get the shuttle service at the airport to the time I arrived at this Quality Inn. Juan shines naturally in his customer service skills. And I am very picky when it comes to this as I am a corporate trainer with my own business in teaching customer service. After I arrived at the hotel, Juan was polite, cordial and very professional in taking the time needed to explain and show me the space I was to use for my meeting for the next two days. If there was an above and beyond award, Juan should get it. You are lucky to have him. Definitely cares about the people and the company he works with...definitely great leadership and management qualities.

Room Tip: Get the King size bed room (226) at the end corner, 2nd floor closest to the pool!
