“NOT THE BEST”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The hotel is not in the greatest neighborhoods, so it is not like you can have an evening stroll after dinner or anything. The room was very dated and smelled of smoke. The furniture was worn and the carpet stained. The wifi did not work. If all you are going for is a place to stay overnight, then this would be ok.

Filthy motel. This was a horrible experience. The carpet and furniture were worn and stained. It is an older 2 story motel. The "guest" across the parking lot had their door propped open and cars would pull up and stay a few minutes then leave. There was hair left in the shower. There have not been any upgrades or maintenance to this hotel in more than 10 years. The only advantage to this hotel is it has a free airport shuttle to TPA. Which also means if you get here by the free shuttle you do not have a rental car or transportation to get out of here and into a safer cleaner hotel.

We travel with our dog and always look for pet friendly hotels. We asked and were told that pets were welcome and that there would be no charge. We were surprised to have $25 added to our bill as we checked out. YIKES! The room was ok -- not really pleased with their choice of pillows (small and lumpy) and a small tv with limited channels. We usually stay at Motel 6's and never get charged for our dog and usually get the premium channels....

Room Tip: There is a nice pond in the back, which was nice for an early morning stroll with Buddy! (and yes...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We take our guest comments very seriously and always strive to provide comfortable, affordable and friendly accommodations. About the pet fee, it was stated on the registration card that "pets are permitted with a 25.00 non refundable fee" If we failed to notify you about the fee, we apologized. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Respectfully, Management

Friendly staff and good location but rooms are worn and shoddy. Light bulbs out and only warm water at best. Parking area and stairways are very poorly lit. Probably would not stay there again with many other options nearby.

I've stayed at this property for the past two years for a music festival. During the time of the festival the property gets pretty hectic! The front desk personal Michelle I believe was GREAT! She was so helpful and kept her attitude cool, calm, and collected during all the craziness! The hotel itself is average but I wouldnt want to stay anywhere else! Its location is super convienent if your headed to the stadium or airport! We did have a problem with not getting towels but I understood the hotel was swamped so making a trip to walgreens to buy my own was fine with me and they had on site laundry that helped a ton! The breakfast room/lobby is very nice and clean! Ill see you guys every year!

I was very unhappy with my stay at Comfort Inn Tampa RJ Stadium. Got their @2:56pm 4/27/2014 and had to wait till after 4:15pm along with many other guests being told the rooms were not ready because they were Full the night before and they only had 1 washing Machine working and had no sheets and towels. The front desk guy was rude and lacked any empathy about this situation. He acted like it was all out faults. Because of this we almost left and went to another hotel but we were going to get charged for the room anyways so we decided to wait.

Then finally got to check in and was given a 2nd floor room in the far building and my wife is disabled which I requested a queen disability access room. Got to the room and couldn't get in. Walked back to the front desk he told me "yeah sorry I wrote the wrong room number for you". So then had to walk back to the room and open the door to new room, walk in and find a huge air dryer running. So called the front desk to ask why an air dryer was on the floor in the room and why were the floors WET(Soaked)!!! I was told Oh I wasn't suppose to give you that room come back to the front desk and I'll give you a another room. The final room was adequate but I will definitely never stay again.
