“Good Value, Wonderful Staff”
Reviewed 21 December 2009

This place has an incredible staff. They are kind and incredibly helpfu. We had a really stressful stay in the Tampa/St Pete area. The first hotel we stayed at was a nightmare. We transfered to this hotel. It is is basic neat the inexpensive. There is free working wireless in the hotel.

We got lost when trying to get to the hotel, a staff member (I think her name was Julie). Helped to guide us into the location. We also had problems with our airline reservation, the women at the front desk was incredibly helpful in trying to help straighten out the situation.

We recently stayed at the Towne Place Suites as we attended a football game and had no complaints about our stay here. The staff were all very helpful, friendly and informative about the area. They offer a great (free) shuttle service which we used on both days of our stay. One took us to directly to the International Plaza Mall and the other dropped us off within walking distance of Raymond James Stadium. Our room was a one bedroom suite and gave us plenty of space without feeling confined to a hotel room. Would definately stay here again if ever in the Tampa area.

I stayed here with my husband 0522-052509 while in town to take care of some family affairs in the New Port Richey area. We were also celebrating an anniversary.
The hotel is new and is located in a new retail center that is off the beaten path but, very close to the airport. It's location was convenient for the drive to New Port Richey as well as to the St. Pete's beach/Clearwater area.
The room was clean and comfortable and more than met our needs for our extended weekend. There is complimentary computer usage near the front desk and an "info perch" with a selection of newspapers as well.
The swimming pool was unusually long and we enjoyed taking a dip in it during the hot afternoons as well as in the evening.
We really enjoyed staying here for all the reasons mentioned and would not hesitate to stay here in the future.

Stayed here with Marriott Points over Memorial Day weekend. Overall you can't go wrong with this property... great location and brand new.

NEGATIVES
- The studio rooms are smaller than other TownePlace properties.

- Although the room was brand new, it wasn't cleaned properly. Hair on the bathroom floor and on the toilet. Microwave was considerably dirty (not just a little -- I'm sure it's easy to forget, but still), and the counter was sticky in spots.

- The a/c units need to be reprogrammed. We had it on 70, and bumped it up 2 notches to 72 and the heat came on. Annoying in the middle of the night when you have to turn the lights on and figure the darn thing out.

- The only thing we can figure about the hot water is that maybe the hotel was built with an "eco friendly" water heating system. After returning from beach, we showered in the afternoon and the water was tepid even on the hottest setting. It started getting slightly warmer as each person showered, so possibly the water heaters only heat on demand. Guess I can live with this to save the planet :) Just would have been nice to warm up in the shower after being cold and wet. And this property has no hot tub, so that was out.

POSITIVES
- The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

- Nice brand new hotel, great size pool.

- Even though it was next to the airport, noise was not an issue at all.

Would definitely return to this hotel again if in the area. Love my Marriott's.

This was a nice hotel to stay in for the weekend to celebrate Mother's Day. Great location near the mall (3 minutes away!), church and the Aquarium (about 10 minutes away) and affordable too (yes!). The only problem was the AC which was hard to figure out. You can only set to really cold or really hot. Love the kitchen and free wi-fi. The hotel next door have a nice restaurant with breakfast buffet which was delish!!!! Staff was ok but they could do better. It was also weird to see the actual owners of the hotel roaming around. I would stay again for antoher quick getaway.

My family and I had to make an unfortunate trip to our hometown after our mother's sudden death. We needed a suite-like, inexpensive place to stay in a moment's notice with an open-ended reservation as we took care of Mom's affairs. The staff at TownePlace were incredibly accommodating and very nice with all requests.

We had three rooms and stayed several days. The included refrigerator, microwave and stove made it feel very comfortable. Everything was very clean and neat. The free high-speed internet was a welcome amenity and was TRULY high-speed.

The only odd thing was the air conditioning system. When it was on cold, it was cold, but even turning it up a few degrees (from 71 to 72 or 73, for instance) the wall unit started heating vs. cooling. Not too much of an issue for us, as we kept the A/C off most of the time and the room stayed a comfortable 73.

Location is only five minutes from the airport and the International Mall/food court. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an extended-stay long term location in the Big Guava.

Great hotel a short distance south of the airport. We called the shuttle to pick us up in front of baggage and no one came. Wish we were told that the shuttle comes around the corner from baggage(because of airport regulations)but after an hours wait we got to the hotel. The room was great with a nice little kitchen, mostly set up for making coffee and heating food in the microwave but we made it work for cooking meals from scratch. We also got the shuttle to take us to the Westshore mall where we took a bus in to Ybor city and the local grocery store(it is difficult to walk anywhere from here) but those trips were secondary to the airport route. This meant our wait times were substantial with the driver making side trips to our locations only when he could fit them in.
The internet access was great both in the room and in there office area which included a printer, stapler etc. The breakfast was only an apple or banana and breakfast bar with coffee or juice but there is a buffet breakfast at the neighboring hotel for $12. Nice 37" LCD TV in the room with plenty of channels including HBO. There was a great little gym with 2 treadmills, an elliptical and a bench with dumbells, a lap pool next to the parking lot and a BBQ. There were no noise issues for us, all in all a great stay.

  • Liked — Neat, clean and new.
  • Disliked — It would have been best with a rental car, but we were told that the shuttle would take us anywhere within 3 miles. We were not told of the wait times that we encountered.
