“Bizarrely decorated hotel in a convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

I chose this hotel because it was located in Tampa, but on the outskirts of most of the hectic traffic. It is conveniently located near a shopping center and lots of restaurants, and was fairly easy to get in and out of.

I have never seen a hotel decorated the way this one was and that is not a compliment! The common areas were absoltuely covered with kitshy knick-knacks and decorations (ceramic and metalic fish, coral, turtles, etc) to the point of being a cluttered, however none of them were dirty or dusty. The rest of the hotel had a 1980s seafoam-green-and-pink theme. It reminded me of something off the set of the 'Golden Girls,' except even they wouldn't have had the figures everywhere like that. It was a little overwhelming after a long hot day of traveling, and felt a bit unprofessional - especially since the Comfort Suites line is marketed towards buisness professionals.

The night I stayed, I was unable to connect to the wireless all evening from about 5pm to 10pm (though it worked fine the next morning). There was a jacuzzi tub in the room, but the jets didn't work. The room was clean and comfortable and there were lots of TV channels to choose from.

Because of the internet connection problems, I probably wouldn't stay here again. I disliked the decor, but I could have overlooked it if everything else went well. I also feel like the room rate was a little overpriced for the area and the fact that it has not been remodeled recently.

We visit family about once a year in Tampa. We have stayed at many of the upscale hotels downtown and on Westshore but my husband and I agree that this was our best stay yet. The staff was wonderful, going out of their way to make us feel at home and we absolutely loved Jean, the manager. It is obvious that she takes pride in this hotel.
The rooms were tastefully furnished and the bed and bath linens were very nice. The Jacuzzi was a definite plus! Don't bother making coffee in the room, go downstairs and get your coffee, it is awesome, as was the breakfast, which was better than in most Choice hotels in which we have stayed.
It is located in a nice area, just outside of Brandon, with easy access to both Brandon and Tampa. We hope to see Jean and staff on our next visit to Tampa.

So I was in town for work and this is where I chose to stay. The hotel and the rooms are a bit dated. Even though its not the fresh look you would expect from a Comfort Suites its still very clean and pleasant. The staff is truly amazing and take lots of pride in their functions at the hotel. Management is very strict which I really liked. Not alot of properties have management like this one. If you want to feel safe and know that you are in good hands its not a bad place to stay.

We spent one night. The hotel is not new, but it is obvious, the owners and staff take great pride in their facility. Everything was neat and clean and the lobby was wonderfully decorated for Valentines Day. They said they decorate for all holidays. The room was clean and comfortable. Although the reservation form did not indicate it, there was a micro and refrigerator in the room. Our trip was to visit the Seminole Hard Rock Casino and have dinner in Ybor City. The location of the hotel was perfect for both. The breakfast was great: ham and eggs (a surprise) along with the standard waffles, toast, pastries, etc., etc.

This is a pretty much average hotel in the Choice chain though prices run higher than many in better city locations. It is an older property but is kept clean and seems well maintained. The bed was comfortable and the shower ok. Wi-fi signal was strong. The drawback for me was location. I like to have eateries and convenience venues nearby. There is only a Wendy's within close walking distance and, even when driving, you have to go a ways to find somewhere decent to eat. I will definitely try another hotel the next time I'm in the Tampa area.

Had an unexpected getaway and didn't get time to map a plan of action while on vacation. Came across this fantastic hotel in a great location near shopping, food, The Hard Rock Casino and the highway to the Tampa Bay Ryas game. Hotel was super clean, the workers were very friendly and help with directions and food suggestions. Rooms are large, all smoke free, had a couch, fridge and microwave in room and had a great breakfast to start us out each morning. Thanks for the great stay while visiting the Tampa area. Will be back next summer!

Room Tip: was right off major highway, but very quiet neighborhood. pool looked nice, but never got the time t...
