I had business to attend to very early the next day nearby this hotel. I sought out this location as I remembered the first time coming here, everything was so good! This stay was even better then the first time, and they treated us like we were special guests they knew so well, rather then just a customer! The breakfast was the typical Choice Hotel breakfast, and I ate the oatmeal with banana, as it is far less salty then the eggs and waffles they offer. Just as others have commented and I remarked the previous stay here, there is only one thing bad about this hotel, and that is its location and getting into it. Even with a GPS it is confusing, I can't imagine without one, and it is also very hard to see at night as well. Obce there though, the people are terrific and hotel itself very well maintained. If I ever have business in the area again, we will absolutely stay at this location!

Room Tip: We stayed on side not gacing I-4 which was quiet.

We booked this package based on other reviews and I'm happy to say we where not disappointed. We checked in without any issues. The breakfast was nice and the attendant was very pleasant. We had a shuttle to the Tampa port which got us there in plenty of time. When we returned 7 days later I called the hotel for a shuttle pick up and he was there in 10 minutes. I'm so happy we used this service, it made cruising out of Tampa so simple. I would recommend this hotel and package if your cruising out of Tampa. I will happily use them again.

Hotel is not easy to find at night. Common areas were nice and clean. The staff was courteous and helpful. They gave good directions and made excellent restaurant suggestions. The suite was nicely decorated. It had a desk and a desk chair had but no sofa. Close to the I interstate and easy to get around the city. Very enjoyable stay.

We booked this hotel for an overnight stay. We arrived close to midnight and were greeted by a very friendly desk clerk. He got us to our really nice clean room quickly and we slept comfortably. Breakfast was hot and delicious. I had to print an email and was able to do that on one of the computers in the lobby area. Check out was super easy and we were on our way. This is probably one of the busiest Quality Inns, but they handle it with ease. Great stay! Thanks a bunch!

Room Tip: Suites are nice.

My wife saw that this Quality Inn was highly regarded by other Tripadvisor reviewers, so we called from the road in the morning for a reservation. We didn't know it at the time, but the Manager answered the phone and was very helpful. When we arrived later that afternoon, she remembered our conversation. Another young lady checked us in, and when we asked for restaurant recommendations, gave us a sheet with about 20 possibilities in Ybor City and the directions on how to easily get there. They were both 'on duty' next morning to help us check out and asked how our dinner was and took notes, to help future guests. The rooms were clean and quiet. Breakfast offered choice but we felt 'at home' with the friendly staff.

Room Tip: Our Room was facing away from I-4 and we heard no highway noise.

This hotel is wonderful in everything important to me. Neema is so very kind and helpful with any questions. I had been paying way more for less than this hotel offers. The pool area looks like an island resort pool area. Beautiful landscaping.

Thankyou, this Quality Inn Tampa fairground location is perfect for me. Just on edge of downtown. Convenient, rather well lit parking lot and quiet. It seems like hotel has renovated successfully. New furniture, decor, carpet, and flat screen TV. I am huge fan of MSNBC and HBO. This hotel has both. I have stayed here a few times, either work related or for fun. It is priced just about right. It's safety, appearance, height, and location make it fine for fun Tampa visit. On way out of town I had lunch at California Taco, near USF. Excellent!
