Clarion Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #90 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The rooms were dirty and smelly and full of bugs (cockroaches). There were stains on the sheets and other guest's trash behind the furniture. The plumbing was terrible; tubs and sink didn't drain and had a "sewer" smell. The breakfast was free for a reason. Avoid.

We stayed at the Clarion for two nights while awaiting our Sunday cruise embarkation. We requested the pool side room which has a really nice large pool and a second small one with a fountain. Nice Florida trees and close to good eating places as well as Wal-Mart a couple of blocks away.

One thing my wife and I enjoyed was the complementary breakfasts each morning. They were hot and hard a nice variety with a server juices and coffee. The rooms were so so but for two or three nights we were happy to use the pool, eat a good breakfast and be with in range of shopping we needed before our cruise. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We had a great time at your hotel, except for the check in. The room was clean, the staff friendly and always willing to help you in any way. We needed a downstairs room, because our daughter is handicap and can't walk upstairs. We requested and were promised a downstairs room, upon making our reservations. When we arrived we were told there was not a downstairs room available until the next day. Upon asking for a pillow and a blanket, so my daughter and I could sleep on the couch, while my husband took the room (due to lateness in day, we were locked into reservation) another desk clerk found us a room on the bottom floor. We will be back and we did enjoy our stay.

Room Tip: rooms on the south side are quieter.

The staff was excellent. When we were there my daughter had the flu the cleaning staff striped the whole room and sanitized it for me.
Front desk staff was great with any of my needs. Wonderful staff would recommend to friends and I would stay again.

Thank you

Nice for what you pay. Is not a deluxe hotel, but very convenient to drive anywhere. Hot breakfast is a plus, but needs a bit more variety if you are staying more than 3 days. Ir gets old of eating the same day after day.

Room Tip: Nice for the price. Eggs from breakfast got tiring. Tv in room a bit old.

This is a great hotel for the location and price. It is so close to Busch Gardens and they have a shuttle if you want to take it. It includes a full breakfast eggs, bacon etc. The staff was very helpful and the pool was nice and big. The room was a fine size. It could use alittle updating but it was fine
