Comfort Suites Tampa Airport North
Ranked #36 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2011

We stayed in this Hotel while in the area last year and had a comfortable stay and so chose to stay again this year prior to an early flight from Tampa to London, The room was comfortable and convenient on the ground floor for last minute packing etc. and the business centre was useful for checking in for our flight. The Hotel is near the airport so there is aircraft noise also trains run nearby.
I have to say the staff at the Front Desk were mostly helpful but the problem arose when we needed hot water! There was luke warm water in the taps and when I reported the problem to the Front Desk I was told it was due to energy efficiency(!) and to run the bath water for FIFTEEN minutes and it would get hot! This did not happen and it was late so we gave up trying to take a shower or bath .
I have mobility problems and need a hot bath to ease pain in the morning but still no hot water! Eventually after my husband rang the Front Desk yet again we were given the key to the next door room where we could take a shower or bath ! We thought one of the basic requirements in a Hotel is hot water so on checking out my husband requested an adjustment to our bill and eventually 10% was deducted which seemed a derisory amount for the inconvenience we had endured.
Needless to say we will not be staying here again

Room Tip: Choose a room where there is hot water in the taps! Room 101 has a problem!

We have stated at this hotel many times as it is very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. It is conviently located in the middle of so many attractions, resturants and activities. When staying in Tampa, this is our number one choice.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and quite.

If you are wanting a hotel that offers true customer service and actually feels like a throw back to when customers came first. THIS IS the place for you. I am a coach of a ball team and have traveled for 12 years and we hit them with 58 kids and they didn't miss a beat. From the check in and check out and everything in between it went smoothly. The girls that were working during our saty were a mother and daughter team and WOW, breakfast was first rate and our experience can't be upstaged. Apon leaving we intended to go to the Varsity in Atlanta, But do to travel restrictions we were looking for a place a little closer...And they even reccomended that "The Coliegate" The burgers were amazing and caped off our tournament with a band..We WILL be back.

Clean, friendly service, good food, free wi-fi in room, not a bad location.

Not all of the tv channels worked and when you have a small child that you would like to turn on PBS for while you pack but you can't because it's not working, that's a problem.

Breakfast was good, eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread, bagels, and waffles. There is a toaster and a waffle maker however there is only 1 waffle maker and it takes 2 min for 1 waffle to come out. Would like to see a 2nd one get put as there was a line.

Good size room. I was in a 2 Queen bedroom and it was great. Small fridge (no freezer section), microwave, coffee maker, closet with door, desk, dresser, couch, chair, and coffee table. Beautiful bathroom: shower/tub combo with good water pressure.

I requested a room not on the 1st floor and on the backside of the hotel (for noise control from the main road). They apologized when I arrived that they couldn't put me in the back because all queen beds are along the front of the hotel but that they could put me on the 4th floor. I told them not a problem (what am I going to do, complain until they moved the beds to another room?) and we went to our room. There was no issue with noise. I heard 1 airplane fly over after 8pm and hardly any cars. So recommend asking for a room not on the 1st floor and you'll be fine.

Overall, yes I will stay here again. Even considered extending my stay another night because it's only 15 minutes from Busch Gardens and 30 minutes from the coast in Clearwater. If you're looking for a place close to the airport without the noise, this is a good one because it's only 5 minutes down the road and you don't hear planes at night.

Room Tip: Higher floor room will help cut the noise from the road.

First off, the hotel is not exactly located in the best part of town. There are virtually no restaurants nearby - just a ton of bodega-type merchants. I didn't feel unsafe, but rather unsettled.

The hotel appears to be new, and everything was quite clean. The room itself, however, is not exactly what I would consider a suite. In fact, it's not really any bigger than a standard hotel room. The 'living area' is small with a sofa, coffee table, and mini-fridge with coffee maker. There is a 1/3 wall between the living area and bedroom, and the TV straddles this area. The bed was pretty comfortable, but the drapes didn't exactly meet in the middle, causing light to seep into the room. Worst part - you can hear everything in the room next to you and out in the hallway.

Net, I'm mixed on this one - it was just 'OK.' Unless I really needed to be in this specific area, I would probably pass it up.

I don't know what the rate is during high season, but this may be the best deal in Tampa in September. Very nice room, good WiFi, good breakfast, nice clean outdoor pool. TIP The hotel is off the toll road from the airport. You will need 50 cents in coin to exit the toll road, and to get back on. (You won't appreciate this tip until it's dark and you don't have change in your pocket so you have to pull over to get change out of you carry on in the trunk!)
