Best Western Tampa
Ranked #53 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I stayed here this past weekend on business and it was the perfect hotel. I did not use the gym but the equipment looked brand new and just enough for what you would need for a good work out. They have a breakfast area and I'm sure they do a continental breakfast (I didn't eat breakfast) and there is also an I Hop next door. The staff was very helpful but they should do a better job of NOT revealing someone's room number when other guests are in the lobby. The coffee pot in the room was a plus. For a busy weekend the hotel was nice and quiet. If I have business in the Tampa area I will definitely be back..

The Best Western Tampa is a great small hotel centrally located. The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms provide exactly what you need. I especially found it nice to have a place for your cosmetics, etc in the bathrooms--not available in all hotels. The hotel provides a good free breakfast and wi-fi.

Very well priced, great bang for your buck. Location is good, located on a main strip with lots of nearby food options and an I-hop right next door. Service was great; the staff even helped jump my car.

The hotel is very conveniently located for those travelling in and out of the Tampa airport (about a 10 minute ride). The quality breakfast, welcoming decor, and overall pleasant stay was not outweighed by minor details such as rough sheets and musky hallway odor.

The bed was very comfortable. The third floor of the hotel had an odor. It was masked with some type of air freshner on my first night in the room. The second night, however, my room reeked. I also saw cockroaches in the bathroom.

Hotel was very convenient to the port of Tampa. Came into town to take a cruise. Lots of very nice restaurants and shopping close to hotel. Hotel room was clean and staff very courteous. Breakfast offered was very appealing and service was exceptional.
