“The Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

If your looking for a great hotel this is the best! From the time you walk in you feel like you welcomed. The staff is wonderful. I just love Dema... she has the best customer service attitude I have seen in a long while, ready to please and wears her smile. They are clean and friendly. Bobby the manager is great and always listens no matter what the issues is. The security is friendly and I feel safe here.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter where you stay here, all the rooms are great.

This was a great 2 day stop in Tampa following the Memorial Day holiday. We were looking for a clean, safe and moderately priced location close to the major highways that would give us access to visiting the sites in Tampa and Ybor city. The staff was very pleasant, our online reservation was painless and ready for us when we checked in. The room was recently updated, everything was clean, bathroom was modern and updated! HBO and internet access was also great. A list of recommended restaurants made dinner easy and their suggestion of the Columbia was the perfect choice. Location was less than ten minutes from being parked in Ybor city. Complimentary breakfast the following morning was a nice surprise. Good selection, clean and plenty of seating with a copy of USA today. We will stay again the next time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the first floor of the main building away from "I4". It was very quiet...

My sister, Angie, who's visiting from NY, and our friend, Pilar, and I, stayed at this hotel for three days. I have to say that the accommodation and service we received, far exceeds the money we paid during our stay. We mistakenly used the side door by the handicapped parking to enter the Lobby.Seeing our luggage, a man who was talking to somebody came to opened the door for us. We were apologetic because we learned that's for guests using their room keys to enter. The man, whose name is Sanjay, said not to worry about it. Turned out he's the boss of Bobby, the hotel Manager, who we met at the desk with Neema, their desk clerk, both of whom from the time we arrived until we left, treated us warmly, always asking if we're comfortable and assured us that they're there to see to our needs. I've used many hotels in my travels locally and abroad, is now retired, but requires quality and service at reasonable rates, and we got very lucky finding this Quality Inn, which is minutes to the Hard Rock Casino, the port, the Fairgrounds, and other Tampa attractions. We also met another genial staffer, Luis, who gave us directions and info on locations we wanted to visit, we especially appreciate his help in letting us know where to buy Cuban pernil/lechon, that my husband and I loves. There was also Harry who arranged for Neema to give us the special rate I found last minute the night before we arrived. The excellent service and clean facility, free continental breakfast, internet, wi-fi service, and fax and local calls, far exceeded what we expected to receive for the money paid, and made our long drive to visit Tampa, perfection! Having been a customer service manager, then business owner, for almost 40 years, I have to say that the owner/managers of this hotel has much to be grateful for, and be proud about, for their staff, crew, and establishment, are #1. We all thank you for the fantastic and friendly service we received during our stay, made our visit to Tampa an enjoyable experience, despite losing in the casino. We look forward to seeing you again, and will recommend your establishment with family and friends. Thank you so much!

This is a Great new Hotel. The staff is Friendly and Helpful. The rooms are Clean and well kept. Morning Breakfast is very bountiful. The only thing I do not like is the Flat Screen TV is mounted on the wall and you can not Swivel it to see it from the working desk in the room. you need to sit on the bed to get a good look at the TV. That's the only thing I do not like here.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. The hotel is new.

Nice clean new looking place to stay. Great value and close to downtown Tampa area without the high price. The neighborhood isn't great. But your not there for that anyway. The parking area seemed safe and secure.

A perfect choice for travellers on a budget passing through Tampa. The hotel is located directly to the I-75 and the Tamiami trail 41. It has a very friendly staff. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is o.k. It's a 15min. drive from Ybor City, the historic district of Tampa. Ybor City is all about restaurants, cigar shops, cinema and disco's.

I travel a lot to different places for work, I have stayed at holiday inn's and Marriott but this time when I had to go to Tampa I had to stay at this quality inn since it was closer to work. And I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel in all, from the staff to customer service every thing was excellent.
