Recently stayed 2 nights at the Tampa Residence Inn Westhore Airport. I have stayed at other Westhore properties including the Marriott, Renaissance, Hilton (across the street from Res Inn), Hyatt Place and Embassy Suites. I liked the location of this property and it was well kept, clean, staff was personable, free parking, free breakfast and free small dinner at night. The room was really a suite, kitchen, microwave, full fridge, sink, table for 2, desk, couch, tv and balcony. In a seperate room was the bed, another tv and off the bedroom was the bathroom with shower. Everything worked and was in good shape. I always enjoy it when there is an accessable balcony.
Took advantage of both the free breakfast and the nightly dinner. Breakast was fine - egss, oatmeal, muffins, juice, coffee, ham. I thought it was on the top end of free breakfasts. Their dinner menu changes nightly and on Monday the main item was rice and beans. Not really a fan of it but enjoyed a large salad. On Tuesday they had burgers, hot dogs and baked beans with salad. Again it was just ok but hey it's free!!
Major pluses for convencience to 2 malls - West Shore and International, the airport, Raymond James Stadium and even convenient to downtown. Most of my "business" was actually in St. Pete/ Ulmberton Road area and it was super convenient 15 minutes drive.
The West Shore area is very mixed - high end hotels and restuarants (Roy's, Ruth Chris, Fleming, etc) mixed in with a few adult strip clubs. I felt safe and comfortable but would use caution walking alone at night.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again.
