Best Western Tampa
Ranked #50 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We were looking for a decent hotel for overnight, but didn't need anything fancy. This BW was a good value for the money as an average accommodation. The room needed updating but was generally clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast was standard. There are restaurants nearby if needed.

Reviewed 10 July 2014

We stayed here our last night because it was close to the airport, and we got a two-bedroom suite. However, one room had no window or AC. The lamp and fan didn't work in one outlet. Faint cigarette smell in non-smoking room; lamp and stuffy non-AC elevator; breakfast decent but not as good as in previous place stayed prior nights.

I thought your beds are very uncomfortable, beds should be firm but contour to the body.I purchased a topper to make my bed feel some better but it was still too hard, Consider some people have bad backs and arthtitis. When you choose mattress.

thank you for taking the time to communicate to us why our hotel (beds) did not meet your expectations as of December of 2013 all of our mattresses were replace with brand new Serta mattresses and every consideration was taking when making this decision however at times we are unable to accommodate some special needs .
Please accept our sincere apologies for any troubles or inconvenience we have caused you as with any business like ours the greatest advertising we can have is word of mouth from satisfied customer my goal is to retain you as a satisfied customer and we hope to serve you again in the future

Refrigerator did not work, loose outlet in wall ready to short out, extremely noisy A/C which did not cycle properly prevented proper sleep, however good breakfast and all staff extremely helpful and courteous.

BW Tampa was conveniently located near our destination at Busch Gardens. It's in the heart of Tampa near it all. Clean and quiet hotel but not the most modern but yet hospitable. A continental breakfast buffet is available which was a nice feature.

Hotel was clean, the bed was very comfortable, everything worked in our room, the pool was nice & the pool area clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It's located in a nice area and very easy to get anywhere within a few minutes. I plan on staying there again.

Good value for this hotel. It is in a good location if you want to be very close to the Tampa airport. The room was comfortable and the staff was helpful. I like the clean TV remote control. The hotel is out in a busy street, however it was still quiet inside the room. Breakfast was ok, not great.
