“Best Hotel in Tampa...period”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

You can't beat this place. Breakfast was great, but the real difference was the dinner/ happy hour type atmosphere Tuesday thru Thursday. You can enjoy free beer and wine with a nice decent hot meal. My only nit pick is a shoddy wi-fi connection which likes to leave you high and dry a lot! All in all, a nearly perfect stay and with Angela at the front desk it's ridiculously easy to give it 5 stars without much hesitation. A top notch crew and very friendly atmosphere. I would have a hard time staying anywhere else in Tampa.

Stayed here 12 nights, which is a really good test for any hotel. At first I was given a room that suffered from too loud noise from an A/C unit in the hallway....I mentioned this and was given another nice room right away. The room was clean and housekeeping did a very good job on keeping it organized, refill everything etc. I usually do not sleep very well in hotels, but here I slept through the night all of the 12 nights without issue. Kitchenette is OK and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom functional, clean and spacious. Free breakfast and happy hours included as well. All in all an excellent value for the price you pay. Location is not the best, but if you have a car, that is not a problem either. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: Don't get the room at the end of the hallways where the A/C units are. They are extremely loud.

Based on past TA reviews, I was expecting an above-average property. However, that was not the case. The good--Room was clean and quiet and the staff was excellent upon check-in.
The bad--the lighting in the room was beyond bad. I couldn't see enough to read which is utterly ridiculous in my opinion. I called the front desk to inquire about some stronger lightbulbs and was told that was the standard lighting and she was the only one working and was busy checking in a guest. So much for customer service.
The evening "meal" was supposed to be meatballs and Caesar salad. The meatballs were cold and the Caesar salad was chopped up (from a bag) iceberg lettuce. I have stayed at the nearby Residence Inn for several weeks and their evening "meals" were far superior. When going to breakfast the next morning, I checked the eggs and it was totally empty, so we simply checked out. We were planning on staying all week, but knew we could find a better property.
We are usually very pleased with StaybridgeSuites, but not this one.

I do apologize that the lighting in your room was not adequate and that you were not satisfied with our food offerings.

Stayed here over the holidays while visiting family in the area. Perfect for my dog to join us. Suites were relatively roomy, although I've had others that were more spacious. The breakfast was good and plentiful, the evening snacks and drinks a real plus. Contrary to what I've read, we had no issue whatsoever with the staff. They were very accommodating. There were groups of people socializing at night, but that just made the place feel welcoming, in my opinion. Note this is NOT the place to stay if you don't or can't drive. There are no restaurants, shops, etc. too close by. It is not in the center of anything. We were in a pet-friendly room, and after the first day, we did begin to notice a pet odor that wasn't from our dog. We bought febreeze and sprayed each night. It did the trick, so the only thing I would suggest is that they use better cleaning/deodorizing products on the carpets. Everything looked clean and modern. Would stay again when in the area.

Really comfortable room, great staff, good breakfast and evening fare. Only criticism is there are no local restaurants and unless you have a car you are stranded. Spent 4 days there for a study series and was very comfortable. Great room, very quiet, nice linens. Food items in the hotel "Pantry" were limited and expensive. Didn't have a car, so had to make do. Apart from that, it was a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: All rooms were good, but when I travel, always request high floor away from elevator.

We stayed here based in TA reviews. Hotel rooms are clean and a good size however what ruined everything was the strong smell of smoke in the hallways and in our room, especially in the bathroom. We informed the front desk on exit however they didn't really seem concerned. Will not stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are a 100% Smoke-Free Hotel, and I sincerely apologize that you smelled smoke in the hallways. I can assure you the entire staff here takes any complaint of a smoke smell very seriously, and we take every measure to identify the source and end the problem. I am looking into why we could not resolve this during your stay. This is not the norm at our property, and I would love for you to give us another try during your next visit to Tampa.

This was an excellent hotel for our stay to attend the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day. The hotel is near Bush Gardens and Raymond James Field. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. our Three teenage children comfortably slept in the room without any problem. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The microwave and refrigerator were invaluable for our stay. No annoying noises were heard and the a/c / heater worked great.

Room Tip: higher floors do not have pets
