“Basic but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I was pleasantly suprised when I go to the hotel. It was fairly new, clean and felt safe. Staff were helpful and the room though basic had a nice feel and was clean and well equipted. No fridge and the only ice machine was on the first floor in the breakfast room. Breakfast was standard fare including premade eggs and sausage, waffles, oatmeal and fresh fruit. It was a bit of a mad house with many families with young children. Not a bad place for the money for a day or two. Close to malls and I-75 easy to get around from there. Recommend a room on the lower floors the elevators can get really rocking in the morning making it tough to get down from upper levels.

This is the only place I stay when coming to Tampa. Have always found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. Always find that the hotel and the guest rooms are clean and comfortable.
It is very convenient, easy off/on for 75 in either direction. Very convenient location for me when I am there on business.

Modern, very clean, newer hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Personally thought beds were very comfortable. Went during the week and breakfast was pretty good for free buffet and crowds were not an issue. Was visiting Adventure Island and wanted to be a little further out from the center of Temple Terrace. Surrounding area seemed safe and had plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. Close enough to highway for easy access to other areas of Tampa too. Would definitely choose this hotel again.

It is very clean and nicely maintained but ... the price I paid was more than it should have been. The lobby is small for breakfast so it was crowded each day. The breakfast is good and the best thing is it is included. The rooms are furnished sparsely and the bed too soft. Towels were better than some recent Fairfields. If you have to be on this side of town this is OK ... If the price goes down!

This place is clean and fresh, with recent updates. Stayed on points in a king suite. The room was very much like one would find at a Courtyard. Modern decor, granite sink top, micro/fridge in room, two tvs with bedroom and living area separated by partial wall. Didn't notice any street noise at all as reported by others. In fact, our room was very close to the ice machine, and we never heard it.

Convenient to I-75, but no restaurants close by other than a Bob Evans.

Breakfast offers lots of choices including make your own waffles, hot oatmeal, scrambled eggs and sausage in addition to your typical continental breakfast fare. Very helpful, friendly lady checked on every table while we were there to see if anyone needed anything.

Front desk seems to be manned by local college students. Adequate, but not overly friendly or enthusiastic.

Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed for three nights while accompanying a family member to Moffitt Cancer Center. Easy, quick ride to Moffitt. While I did not care for the décor (matter of personal taste, I guess),the hotel itself was fine. Rooms & public areas were clean, comfortable & well-maintained, breakfast was what you'd expect, with plenty of choices, hot food replenished frequently. Staff was quick to refill coffee urns; in fact, the manager brought a carafe to our table when I mentioned the decaf was empty. There were plenty of tables & chairs,as well as sofas, in the lobby.
The manager seems to have a good grasp of customer service and how to coach her staff: we overheard her morning team meeting and were impressed. Everyone was unfailingly pleasant, polite & helpful.

This was a very typical, newer Fairfield. It is convenient to the Interstate highway as well as all locations in North Tampa including USF, Busch Gardens, and the Moffit Cancer Center. Service was very good. The room was clean and comfortable and the wifi worked well. Breakfast was the basic Marriott setup. The biggest negative was that there are limited restaurant options in the immediate area.
