“Great spot! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

For our honeymoon, my husband and I planned a 2 week Florida road trip. We booked our first and last hotels but filled in the rest on the go using hipmunk, priceline, etc. For our Tampa stop, we chose the quality inn based on reviews. We were very happy with our choice. Although the neighborhood isn't the nicest (I wouldn't go walking around in it at night. ) we felt very safe staying there and leaving our car there. Inside, it's like a brand new hotel (it might be, or newly renovated, I'm not sure.) The hotel manager was at the desk when we checked in, and upgraded us to a 2 room adjoining suite when he heard it was our honeymoon. All of the furniture and fixtures looked new. We did not use the pool but it looked very nice and clean. They offer a standard hot and cold breakfast. Anywhere with a make your own waffle station I am there. :)
We aren't from the area, but if we were in Tampa again I would stay at this hotel, even without the upgrade.

I encountered a nice & friendly greeting upon check-in. The room was clean & spacious. The room looked recently remolded, loved the tile shower. The wifi worked great in my room.
I also needed to use the lobby computer for printing. there were 2 computers available. While using the computer, many people checked-in, who seemed to be cruisers. They where greeted by name as they walked in the door --- wow! I think we will use their cruise and park package, if we do a cruise out of Tampa.
There are no eating places nearby, but receptionist provided directions to an area with a wide selection of choices.
The breakfast was good.

Very helpful and friendly staff, seemed very safe with only one entry and exit in the lobby, rooms left alot to be desired asthetically r/t how clean and updated room items were, nice outdoor pool, poor area, they seem to be trying very hard to improve.

Room Tip: I'd stay downtown at a more expensive hotel in the future, if you have to go low price this hote...

You are very close to the downtown area at a very reasonable rate. Rooms are nicely decorated, Free internet access and use of two inhouse computers and printers. Breakfast is included and has a good variety of items. It's a little difficult to find due to its closeness to I-4 and US 41 but it's well worth the effort. They also have free cruise parking and shuttle bus service to and from the cruise terminals with one nights stay.

The front desk personnel where very nice and helpful. We missed our turn and found ourselves in a very run down area just beyond the hotel. We had not seen our hotel yet and started to worry. Once we found it we were pleasantly surprised, the build inside and out was very nice. Breakfast was awesome and the night desk clerk made me a copy of s luggage tag, I was one short. We noticed that the pool was very hazy. We did not get in.

Your feedback about your experience is very important to us, as it helps us to ensure guest satisfaction. I apologize if you were unable to get into the pool during your stay. Our pool is serviced several times daily and i'm sure if it was hazy it was due to the heavy rainfall that day. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to seeing you next time.

The rooms here are very clean. The beds are clean, the bathrooms are clean, the rug is clean. The A/C works, there is a fridge in the rooms (a bit noise at night), there is a nice size TV and it does have all the good channels. Everything seems to be really new, it almost looks brand new.

The area itself may feel a bit strange but I didn't have any problems. There are some thuggish looking people going around, but I think that is the "local flavor". The hotel is located right next to the I4, which is a plus. From the outside, the hotel looks nice. It has a large fenced parking lot, and security seems to be good.

This hotel would qualify as a hidden gem because location is not desirable, although it is safe.
