Ramada Westshore Tampa Airport
Ranked #94 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed 14 December 2011

My door's key card unit was in such poor shape, it usually took about 15 to 20 attempts each time before it finally unlocked the door. They are slowly renovating and maybe they'll get to this one eventually. Slow elevators and filthy laundry area did nothing to enhance my stay.

The maids did not vacuum the floor during my stay. One time one of them used a broom - on carpet, yet - which actually worked for her; and the other didn't do a thing for the floor and left it littered with small scraps of stuff that a vac would have picked up.

That said, there were Pro's. Large unheated pool is adequate for lap swimming and there's a tiny fitness room adjacent. Large mall with multiplex cinemas is a 5 minute walk away.

My room was large, I had a good bed, and because of my extended stay, I was offered a microwave and fridge, which arrived soon after check-in and were given me at no added charge.

There was a very secure safe in the room , the water was very hot, and the heating and air con (had to use BOTH during my stay) worked well.

Motel style, free continental breakfast is barely adequate, but there's a Waffle House just down the street (10 min walk, 2 minute drive), Starbucks nearly next door, and a 24 hour IHOP fifteen minutes walk in the other direction from the Waffle House. Except for La Quinta, this is the cheapest lodging so close to the airport. It's in a safe neighborhood surrounded by far more expensive hotels, office buildings. There's a 24 hour Walgreens drug store 12 mins walk down the street past the mall. With the free wifi, proximity of the late-night, 7 days per week US Post Office at the airport, this ended up being an excellent place to get some business done.

The free airport shuttle (earliest one is 5:05 am, latest to leave the hotel is at about midnight, I think) is fantastic and makes this an excellent place to stay for a transit stay.

I recently flew to Tampa. Due to connection problems I got in very late. While in my connecting city I was able to call and get a room. I was picked up by the shuttle after midnight without delay. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. I had to leave early the next morning. The free breakfast was basic, but hit the spot. Another shuttle ride back to the airport and I was gone. The hotel was clean & convenient and I would stay there again.

I used this hotel overnight between flights at Tampa Airport. I had some misgivings given some of the reviews I have read here, but overall my experience was very good. The shuttle arrived at the airport 10 minutes after I had placed the call late in the evening. The shuttles to the airport go at 05 & 35 minutes past the hour and can be booked at reception. My room was large, clean and had a coffee machine. The furniture looked as if belonged to the 1980's, but that is a question of style. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and the shower great. I found the staff friendly and any questions I asked the front desk were answered and the information correct. The A/C in the room worked well. The breakfast was fine apart from the use of paper plates & cups and plastic cutlery. I had no problems with noise from other guests, there is a bit of noise from the main road if your room is at the front, but I did not notice it until I awoke at 8.30am, nor did I experience any of the reported damp in the room. There are a couple of shopping malls within 10-15mins walking distance, but not much else to do in the immediate area. There seem to be buses on the main road going into town, but I did not use them.

I stayed for 5 days in a non-smoking room. The iron was in poor condition and stained my shirt. It took 40 minutes for the front desk to send someone to replace it and when he came he looked at it and it was never replaced. Next door the guest smoked in his open door way and played the guitar till 130 AM two nights in a row. When notified the security women walked by but did not speak to the guest. Business Center PC's were barely functional and the printer was non-functional to print Boarding Passes. With the hiring of qualified staff, elbow grease, and a focus on customer service, this hotel could become a decent facility. Till then....avoid.

Room Tip: The elevator was broken on two separate days. Unless you enjoy walking the stairs to enjoy the arom...
