“Excellent Staff & Very Accommodating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2010

We were only there for one night & checked in pretty late, but were completely satisfied with our stay. They even called to check on us & make sure we were still staying with them - we got a little bit of a late start on our drive. We had some issues with checking out the next morning, but they were completely willing to work with us. The hotel itself looked very well kept & the room was clean & a lot roomier than most I've stayed in.
I understand now what some of the reviews said concerning the surrounding area, but it seemed well patrolled & safe (room key only entry after dark). We will be traveling to that area for the months to come & will most definitely be staying at this hotel again.

This is a new hoted--everything was spotless and tasteful. More importantly, the front desk folks were the most proactively helpful we've experienced. Shortly after we went to our room we had a call to inquire whether all was in order and whether we needed anything; we got good directions and advice for the several things we requested, and we sensed that they truly cared. We liked it so much that we gave them a second visit on our way back north.
The breakfast is immaculately served and the items kept replenished. Fresh fruit is offered--and they are large oranges and apples, not the lesser ones more morecommon to this chain. They offer sugarless syrup for the waffles, and whole wheat options for the bread. Plus two kinds of egg, and real bacon.
Fitness center has great equipment as well. We'll return!!!

We were just 2 guys on a golfing trip, stayed there only 2 nights. The hotel is brand new, not remodelled like some others say. The staff was very friendly and helpful to us. The neighbourhood is a little sketchy, but they had a security guard on site patrolling the area. Like I said , the rooms were super clean and so were the bathrooms. I would def. recommend this hotel to anyone else. I like that it's close to the I-4. Thanks for everything Rob!

Visited family in Tampa area and stayed 3 nights at this recently remodeled Quality Inn and was delighted with everything from staff, accommodations, breakfast bar. We had a suite with separate living room. There were 2 flat screen TV's, 2 bathrooms, queen beds, my son had standard room which was as excellent. Beautiful carpet, fresh plush bed and bathroom linens, free wifi no password needed, marble top sinks new floor tile, modern telephones, efficient responsive staff for anything you need. Entire hotel smelled brand new. Breakfast bar with waffles, bacon, eggs, etc, freshly prepared all morning. Quiet hotel , not too many people registered, It's near the heart of Tampa, the casino, etc. Right at the foot of exit #3 off Interstate 4, also great highway access to Clearwater and Orlando. There is a new curb that blocks street to hotel, so Mapquest directions are now incorrect. You can see the hotel, but you have to go around the block to enter.. The neighborhood may look "so so", but it was totally quiet every night, no one on the street and hotel has security on duty and exterior doors are secure from outside at all times. Felt safe & comfortable.. Hope they are able to keep it so well maintained. By the way, it is a NO SMOKING hotel., for those who have allergies..

This hotel is fantastic and very central from all the new attractions. Everything is brand new and the staff are wonderful. Heated pool was great after a long day of work. Quiet rooms with flat screen tv's, very nice.

This new Quality Inn & Suites is totally renovated/rebuilt and was re-opened only a month ago. Yes, everything is brand new, not just covered up with cheap plastic. The bathroom counter-top and tiles are made of marble .... but at a Super 8 price! Add the 24-hour fitness centre, hot breakfast buffet, and clean quiet, spacious room, I say it is a steal. I stay there for 2 nights while visiting Busch Gardens - a 10-min drive away. But the neighbourhood looks safe enough, and it is reasonably close to highways. It must be a hidden gem in Tampa/St Petersburg area.
