3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The structure is very good: rooms, pool, reception, restaurant. But I believe it deserves a better maintenance. The room carpet is not super clean (I found something sticky close to my bed, and discovered it was coffee that I believe the previous passengers happened to drop there). The bed sheets could be just a bit more new, and so the... More

Good hotel before cruising out of Tampa, Florida (Carnival Cruise Lines) 3.1 miles to cruise port. Breakfast provided in the morning. $15 per ROOM for shuttle to cruise port. Nice pool. Would stay again.

Let's start with the positives. Close to Busch Gardens. Close to Hwy. Close to Tampa airport. Room and bathroom is clean and well kept. Nothing exciting. Frig is convenient. Has small safe in the room to store valuables. Ok....for the negatives. Hallways and elevator smell weird. This morning we had an overwhelming smell of cigarette smoke in our room emerging... More

Will be at hotel overnight tonight for music festival. Will be requesting microwave in room if not present. Hopefully, staff will meet our needs as we're coming to Tampa from another city. It will be a let down if they don't.

My room at this property was very nice, I called from the road and booked my room. I asked for something close to an elevator. They were kind enough to give me a room on the first floor since they didn't have anything near the elevator. The room was clean, it had a microwave, refrigerator coffee maker and safe in... More

The hotel is located near restaurants, a grocery store, and major highways. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the staff pleasant and professional. Check-in and check-out were easy and the free breakfast included make-your-own waffles...yum. :)

Service was good. The room was clean including the beddings and linens. The employees were courteous. We were impressed by the service of 2 people in the Dining room, Mary and her husband. We will surely stay at Quality Inn & Suites whenever we come back to Tampa area.
