“great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This hotel is wonderful in everything important to me. Neema is so very kind and helpful with any questions. I had been paying way more for less than this hotel offers. The pool area looks like an island resort pool area. Beautiful landscaping.

Thankyou, this Quality Inn Tampa fairground location is perfect for me. Just on edge of downtown. Convenient, rather well lit parking lot and quiet. It seems like hotel has renovated successfully. New furniture, decor, carpet, and flat screen TV. I am huge fan of MSNBC and HBO. This hotel has both. I have stayed here a few times, either work related or for fun. It is priced just about right. It's safety, appearance, height, and location make it fine for fun Tampa visit. On way out of town I had lunch at California Taco, near USF. Excellent!

I decided to book at this hotel after reading such great reviews on TripAdvisor. Since I was going to accommodate a traveling family of seven individuals (including a toddler), I was in search of something affordable without having to compromise safety, service and cleanliness. After spending two nights at this property, I can certainly say that such a place exists and I found an affordable, clean, safe and service-oriented hotel at the Quality Inn & Suites Near Fairgrounds Ybor City!! We were in town to celebrate my son's 3rd birthday with a trip to Lowry Park Zoo, which is amazing, by the way! I so happened to mention this to Neema at the front desk when we checked in and on the morning of his birthday she gave him a goodie bag with treats! Totally unexpected, but completely appreciated and always remembered. Overall, no complaints - Neema was FABULOUS, breakfast was included in the price and was decent, free wi-fi, clean hotel, comfortable and spacious beds/rooms, safe, affordable, beautiful pool area with gazebos and BBQ grill, welcoming lobby and spacious great room - what more could I have asked for!?!?!? I'll definitely be staying here again on any future trips to Tampa!

Spent two nights there with no problems. Check in was friendly and efficient thanks to Neema, room was good, hard to beat the advance purchase rate with Choice Hotels. Breakfast is big enough and plenty of tables to sit at. Location is a few miles east of downtown, right next to I-4, and not that difficult to get to if you can read directions. You can stay closer to downtown Tampa, but if you want to save money, this is a good bet as the drive downtown is not that bad at all.

We stayed in a two room suite for two nights and highly recommend this hotel. Very clean all around. The bed was comfortable. Plenty of space for our whole family. The front desk workers were uniformly smiling and helpful. We were in building 1 which was very quiet. Breakfast was standard, but for free it was well worth it. The neighborhood is run-down, but we did not experience any problems on property. I would stay here again, especially given its proximity to Busch Gardens.

I liked this hotel very much. The location was a bit hard to get to, but it was quiet and offered a nice continental breakfast. It even provides a shuttle to major shows and events and the staff was very friendly. The walls were thick enough too to get a good night sleep.

Room Tip: They have smoking and non-smoking rooms. I'd choose a non-smoking room.

After a 5 day stay in the villages in Florida , having a early flight out of Tampa the next morning, myself and 3 relatives made reservations at this hotel. We had decided to make the most of the situation and try to do some things while in the area. This location was very convenient to several attractions. We had 3 rooms, 2 king suites and 1 queen accessible . The rooms were very clean, the staff was very helpful, and they had good security. The breakfast was better than average, and the service was very good. They always had hot coffee, all night long. The rates were very reasonable. I'm usually not a big fan of quality hotels, but this one was wonderful .
