Quality Inn Airport
Ranked #102 of 164 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed 26 December 2011

We decided to try another location for a overnight stay for a game at Raymond James Stadium, and even though it is about 3 miles away, we elected to try this motor inn,

On entering the driveway it was obvious that this property is well cared for. Check-in was fast and very friendly, and the location is in a better section of Dale Mabry than we thought it would be. The room was well equipped with a fridge, the normal basics, a good high-speed connection and convenience to the lobby and parking lot. Both parking and internet are free. The free breakfast was also better than usual for a motor inn like this.

The motor inn design leads to some outside noise, but we slept very well. If you do not like your front door leading to the outside, places like this are not for you. I kind of like it. The rooms were very clean, and the beds were comfortable

For a game at Raymond James Stadium you could pick a more convenient location, but for an inexpensive motel...this place is very hard to beat.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms are more quiet.

This is one great hotel. From the time we got picked up to the time we got dropped off at the Port of Tampa for our cruise we had a great experience staying at this hotel. Not only was it within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies. They offered a free shuttle service to/from TPA airport. They also take you to the port of Tampa if you are going on a cruise at a fee of only 8.00 per person, which is far cheaper then what Carnival was offering for there shuttle service. They have free newspapers even on Sundays, internet with a printer, faxing service and a wonderful contenantial breakfest with so much to choose from. Everyone we came in contact with was so friendly from the shuttle driver, the front desk clerks, the maids to the breakfest bar hostess. We very much enjoyed this Quality Inn. it was a very great value for what we got.and then some. If we ever go back to Tampa they'll get our business.

Room Tip: Offers Port of Tampa Shuttle service at a great price.

This place is not the Waldorf Astoria, so please do not expect that. It is, however, a clean and comfortable place to stay. We booked a room on a Saturday night, as we were departing on a Carnival cruise Sunday morning. We arrived at the Tampa airport and called for the free shuttle, and it promptly arrived to pick us up (we did have some trouble finding the Red pickup area at the airport due to some confusing signs). Upon arrival at the hotel, the desk clerk, a British student here for college, was very pleasant and made sure we knew what was close by. The rooms are a bit dated, but ours was clean. A Publix supermarket was a short walk away, so we were able to grab some sodas for the cruise, plus some tasty sandwiches for dinner that night. There is a Catholic church just across the street, where we were able to attend 7:30 AM mass prior to leaving for the cruise. After mass, the breakfast area was very crowded, and our friendly British student was frantically trying to keep up with maintaining stock in all of the food areas. It was a decent breakfast with fresh made waffles, and there were even complimentary Sunday newspapers. The shuttle to the cruise terminal took us right up to where porters unloaded our suitcases, so we never touched our bags once we left the hotel. Due to an early flight on our return, we could not take advantage of the hotel shuttle to get us back to the airport, so we took a cab instead. To sum up, this is a decent place to stay if you are arriving in Tampa the night before a cruise, as it is a good value. Would definitely stay here again if we decide to cruise again out of Tampa.

The hotel was acceptable and convenient but if you are stay to get your "free night" in their current promotion, don't bother. Read the fine print. You do not receive your points for 72 hours after your 2nd stay. Then you only receive 8000 points total. This hotel takes 16000 point to stay at as do most of the hotels anyone would want to stay at.
After 3 conversations with Choice Privilege customer service representatives I'm getting out of this program.

arrived in tampa one day prior to taking a cruise and stayed at this place. took advantage of complimentary transportation from the airport to the hotel as well as the shuttle (reasonable fee charged) to the cruise port the following day. had no prroblems with either.
enjoyed extremely friendly service and assistance from staff; breakfast buffet was abundant, fresh and well tended to; outdoor pool and the area around it was clean and welcoming; location was excellent (plenty of restaurants and grocery stores w/in 5 minute walk); complimentary wi-fi.
only downside was the guestroom we stayed in was a little "tired" looking however it was unquestionably sufficient.
