This hotel was very nice, even much nicer than I expected. We were very pleasantly surpirsed. The lobby was standard - similar to other chains. But, the room was HUGE (I think we had a handicap accessible room), very clean, and well furnished/equipped. The staff was very nice. The continental breakfast was nothing fancy, but did the trick. The fitness room was average. I am not very familiar with the area, but the hotel seems to be well situated. It's not in walking distance to Ybor City, but a few miles drive, and located on/near the main highway. I would absolutely stay here again! It was great value, and very nice room given the cost.

We spent 5 nights here in late April. The room was nice. The beds were comfortable and we especially like the duvet bed covers. The breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. The pool was a little loud and the 10:00pm pool closing was not enforced, but with the A/C on did not bother us. Many have commented on the neighborhood, but the hotel is well insulated from the neighborhood and we felt safe and secure at all times. It was a very easy drive to and from Busch/Adventure Island daily. We have put this hotel as our #1 for Tampa stays. Salem's Gyros & Subs is just down the street. For fast food, their buffalo wings and fried seafood platters were very good.

Nothing fancy about this place, but the room was clean, the pool was nice, and the breakfast was okay. It's in an ugly location, close to a major overpass, and the directions aren't obvious, but the front desk staff was pleasant and for the price it was fine.

This is a relatively new property that is very serviceable and excellent value. It was built as a "pre-fab", so the outside architecture is pretty plain, but the rooms are quite nice for the price and have everything you need. The breakfasts are particularly good and the staff is very accommodating. I was impressed by the desk clerk and the "breakfast lady". Both cheerful and motivated. I was not thrilled with the neighborhood immediately near the hotel, but it was fine and the hotel's location was perfect for my business in South Tampa.

I would happily stay there again. Definitely consider if you are looking for good value and a very clean, new, comfortable place in the area.

Room Tip: It can be a LONG walk to your room. Check 1st.

We spent a night at this hotel on March 27th and have nothing bad to say about it. I'm not sure how great the area is but we had no real security concerns.

Had the cruise and park package booked, and due to unforseen circumstances ended up arriving in Tampa after a very long long drive about 5am, absolutely exhaused. Went to the desk and were told they were 'full" and we wouldnt be able to check into our room until after 12pm, no way we could wait that long so we went across the the Days Inn and ended up with the same deal. Went back across the street to the Quality about 6am to cancel our reservation, at which point the same night clerk was busy in the breakfast area, took him about 10 minutes to acknowlege we were standing there, he came over and we explained we found another room and would like to cancel, he told us he was "too busy" getting the breakfast area ready and that we would have to come back after 7am, turned and walked back to the breakfast area. We went to our room, slept, and around 1pm went back over to cancel, explained to the lady at the desk what had happened and what the gentleman working had told us, and she was very very nice, apologized, and said he should have taken care of customers first. The hotel from outer appearances looked really nice and we will be booking once again for our Oct cruise and arriving after their night clerk has gone home :) As a side note, yes the neighborhood isnt the best, but at no time did we feel unsafe, nor did we see anyone we would have been leary of hanging around, the hotel has security and there is no reason to fear the surroundings.
