“Gives You the Basics Near Major Interstates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Stayed for two nights during 4th of July weekend. Right next to I-4 so cannot beat it for easy access. Comfortable clean rooms with good basic amenities. Continental breakfast is good basic spread. waffle maker line gets busy quickly so get there early. Very nice pool, big enough to do laps if you like swimming for exercise. I used it twice. Again go earlier if you want less crowds, it opens a 7am.

Only things I would say to improve is the double door to the right in the lobby before the elevators. Management should invest in an automatic door. Right now its two swing doors. It was a bit cumbersome for us to pull the luggage cart and hold doors etc. and I saw others going thru the same. Not a deal killer but would improve that experience.

Would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: Long hallways, so ask for a room close to elevator if you want to be near the lobby or near the main...

On behalf of our entire team thank you for the review. Here at the Quality Inn we take our commitment to our guests very highly. I have instructed my head of Maintenance to look into the door situation and see if we can remedy the ease of opening the doors.

For our honeymoon, my husband and I planned a 2 week Florida road trip. We booked our first and last hotels but filled in the rest on the go using hipmunk, priceline, etc. For our Tampa stop, we chose the quality inn based on reviews. We were very happy with our choice. Although the neighborhood isn't the nicest (I wouldn't go walking around in it at night. ) we felt very safe staying there and leaving our car there. Inside, it's like a brand new hotel (it might be, or newly renovated, I'm not sure.) The hotel manager was at the desk when we checked in, and upgraded us to a 2 room adjoining suite when he heard it was our honeymoon. All of the furniture and fixtures looked new. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice and clean. They offer a standard hot and cold breakfast. Anywhere with a make your own waffle station I am there. :)
We aren't from the area, but if we were in Tampa again I would stay at this hotel, even without the upgrade.

I encountered a nice & friendly greeting upon check-in. The room was clean & spacious. The room looked recently remolded, loved the tile shower. The wifi worked great in my room.
I also needed to use the lobby computer for printing. there were 2 computers available. While using the computer, many people checked-in, who seemed to be cruisers. They where greeted by name as they walked in the door --- wow! I think we will use their cruise and park package, if we do a cruise out of Tampa.
There are no eating places nearby, but receptionist provided directions to an area with a wide selection of choices.
The breakfast was good.

Very helpful and friendly staff, seemed very safe with only one entry and exit in the lobby, rooms left alot to be desired asthetically r/t how clean and updated room items were, nice outdoor pool, poor area, they seem to be trying very hard to improve.

You are very close to the downtown area at a very reasonable rate. Rooms are nicely decorated, Free internet access and use of two inhouse computers and printers. Breakfast is included and has a good variety of items. It's a little difficult to find due to its closeness to I-4 and US 41 but it's well worth the effort. They also have free cruise parking and shuttle bus service to and from the cruise terminals with one nights stay.
