“Hotel was excellent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Very pleasant stay. Hotel was excellent and I would stay here again. Perfect location just off the expressway and only 6 minutes away from the Hard Rock Casino. Can't complain too much as the room had a medium sized refrigerator, safe, free wifi, free continental breakfast, free USA Today newspaper, and even toiletries if you need them. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 stars is the area and view.

Hotel is two floors and has an elevator. Large king bed room with plenty of room for luggage. Lighting good and black-out shades were excellent. Love the deflector over the A/C/heat to keep air in room, not up inside drapes. Bed comfy and bedding very nice. Wifi not working or slow much of the time. TV had a good picture, but the sound would not go up enough for us to hear it easily, which we found quite frustrating (our hearing is fairly normal). Three-piece bath with amply vanity space, and water pressure was good. Exercise room had a TV, towels and a water cooler. Self-service laundry had two washers and two dryers ($1.50 ea) and the room was very warm. The landscaping was beautiful! Pool and pool area very appealing. Vending machines containing drinks and snacks, PLUS a machine in the breakfast area with hot sandwiches AND ice cream treats (we didn't try it out, so don't know about the quality). Large breakfast area off of lobby with plenty of tables. Two double toasters and two waffle makers. Three kinds of juice, coffee and tea. Square biscuits that were between a biscuit and a roll, and gravy. Mini donuts and muffins, bagels, bread, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs (tasted tangy so didn't eat). Great selection of condiments. The day we were there, none of the breads were fresh, so suggest toasting or microwaving. Very nice staff. The rate was VERY reasonable, but on top of that were three different taxes and a 'hotel services fee,' about which we failed to ask. Tricky to find, and you need a car to go for food. Hotel is just a bit over three miles to the Florida Aquarium and the Tampa Bay History Center.

My husband and I recently stayed here last weekend, the room was spotless. The men at the front desk were a great help. Everything was great! We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend others to choose this hotel as well.

I'm always very nervous booking unknown hotel rooms. I can't tell you how many "deals" have sent me searching for another hotel at the last minute rather than staying at a "nightmare inn." I thought the deal on this hotel was way too good to be true even though we booked for a Monday, Tuesday stay. I was very pleasantly surprised when I first entered and up to and including the last minute I left! Excellent, polite, and pleasant staff. Beautiful pool area. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Very comfortable beds - and this is usually a big one for me because I have a bad back. The hotel was also very quiet. It was the easiest place to find in all of Tampa. I always spend a lot of time driving around in circles in unfamiliar towns and this was the only place I drove straight to without missing a turn. Thanks Quality Inn - I'll be back!

Rooms were clean and relatively spacious. Breakfast is good with a decent sized pool. Very easy to find, just off the I4. What sets this hotel apart is the excellent team of staff who were polite, accommodating and to genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs in providing exceptional customer service. I would defiantly recommend this hotel, especially for the price.

We checked in after leaving a terrible hotel and what a relieve. This hotel is very nice, the rooms and bathrooms are so clean and the pool offers a beautiful spot to relax. Free breakfast and the staff is super friendly and helpful, definitely recommend this hotel and a great price. Made our stay more enjoyable, thanks.

Our stay was very pleasant. All hotel staffers were pleasant and very accommodating.
Rooms were clean and it is located within driving distances to most of Tampa attractions.
Will definitely return to this spot. You get excellent amenities for an economical cost!
