“Pleasent Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2010

This property is kinda out of the way, being a little outside downtown Tampa, and tucked away in a business plaza. Property borders the interstate; ask for rooms on the front side if you are a light sleeper. A good portion of the staff appears to be from an international workforce agency, no communication problems however. Breakfast was a typical Marriott offering; Waffle maker, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, hot/cold cereal, pastries/bread, and drinks, acceptable, but meager. Those are about the only ‘issues’ I had with the property, and that is straining to think of things. Over all, a very pleasant stay. Property looks new, staff was nice and polite. Rooms were clean, bed and linens are all in good condition. Nice pool with hot tub, the building also features a modern fitness center. Free parking in a spacious, well lit, close lot. All rooms are interior corridor. I felt secure on the site. Good hotel for quick business or family stays. I would probably stay at another larger property if I was in town for more than a few days.

The facility was outstanding, the staff very helpful and the rooms and entire property very clean. The breakfast was always stocked and they extended the hours if we were sleeping in. I would highly recommend this hotel.

after three nights there i had what appeared to be bedbug bites all over me! don't know what else they could have been as they matched the desciptions and pix when researched online and when i had a nurse look at them. although it pears to be a new hotel, i don't know if they borrowed a bed from another fairfield or what, but after i left, moving to another hotel in the area, the itching, bumps, welts and blisters ran their course at the same rate as the ones described online. an interesting coincidence? i don't think so! here are some pix, you be the judge

The new Fairfield Inns are awesome. This one was new and had new designs in the room. Huge 37 inch flat screen tv's, nice bathrooms, nice ameneties. The beds were a little on the hard side but not bad. The rooms are small but new and shiny. They have a really good breakfast buffet every morning which was very good. I will highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in the Tampa area.

Marriott properties have done a great job moderizing their hotels. I have never been a fan of Fairfield Inns but this one was so nice. It is brand new so it is very clean. The decor is very bright and modern. The room is still fairly small but the bedding is much better than the older hotels. There is a new flat screen TV with dish network. There is a free breakfast which wasn't much. I have never seen one that was. I would stay there again.

Mostly very good. Great value for just over $100 per night. Here are the postives and negatives:

Positives:
1) Mostly very clean, very colorful decor, new hotel as of February 2009.
2) Rooms were excellent, had 40 inch LCD high def TV with excellent cable channels - HBO,etc.
3) Outdooor pool and whirlpool were very nice (though pool water is cool in February!)
4) Small but nice workout center, open 24 hours
5) In lobby, free usage of computers and two printers to surf the web, print airline boarding passes, etc.
6) Free breakfast (nothing fancy but decent)
7) Short drive (10-15 mintues) to Busch Gardens. About an hour to Orlando - straight shot down the highway.

Negatives:
1) If you are sensitive to noise, stay on the side of the hotel that does not face the highway. I was on the highway side, and the noise didn't bother me.
2) Housekeeping ignored my card on the pillow to have the sheets changed (they did this 2 nights in a row).
3) Location is a bit out of the way, in the middle of an office park, just of the highway.

This is a brand new place that opened just a month ago. It's conveniently located, about 10 minutes from downtown and airport. We stayed one night on our way down to Siesta Key. Busch garden is about 15 minutes away. Service was good and the place was brand new.
