“Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2010

A great hotel! We stayed here pre-cruise at the beginning of May. Rooms were very nice. Easy to get to and from the interstate. The pool area was very nice. Breakfast was good. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the Tampa area.

Found this hotel on Priceline and it said it was close to I-4. Hotel was really nice on the inside.. it looked new. Pool area was clean and well kept. The neighborhood is not the greatest and nothing is really in walking distance, but it's right off I-4 and 275. Ybor City os down the street, Busch Gardens about 15 mins north and the Hard Rock is East!

Beds were really comfortable, the bathrooms were super clean (which is important) and plenty of parking. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and continental breakfast was included with the room price to save even more money! Also high speed internet!

Spent one night over Memorial Day weekend as part of a Busch Gardens vacation with our 4 children aged 4 to 21. What a pleasant surprise to discover that the suite we had booked was actually two adjoining rooms giving us a second bathroom and more than enough space for everyone to stretch out. The service was friendly, the room was clean and well appointed, and the free hot breakfast offered something for everyone. The neighborhood was not as bad as some reviews suggested and was a short 10 minute drive to BG. We are planning to return to the Tampa area a few more times in the near future and will definitely stay here again. We stay in hotels 5-7 times a year and this Quality Inn & Suites was second to none.

Hard to find reasonable accomodations when traveling with opposite sex siblings so the "suite" option (two hotel rooms, one with pull out sofa) here was terrific. Had expected tired rooms and formica so this was a pleasant surprise - granite counters, good bedding, clean, etc. We were just in for one night pre-cruise and had used Alamo for car rental. Quality Inn did not charge for parking as did some others nearby. Location is near highway that quickly gets you back to Alamo and they (Alamo) had free shuttle service to port as well as free shuttle back to airport after end of cruise.

We took advantage of their Sail, Park, Stay package. It's a great deal and much cheaper than parking at the port. New hotel, great service. The free breakfast was a perfect send off meal before going to the port. Helpful hint for those who prefer a room on the very cool side to sleep: apparently, the unit has some kind of energy efficient feature that needs to be overpowered to get it to do what you want it to do. Go ahead and set it at 60 and the fan on high. Also, there is a very nice supermarket (Sweet Bay) that is just around the corner. It's a great place to stock up on items you forgot to pack, snacks and drinks for the trip back home, etc.

The motel is new, beds are comfortable, no major wear and tear. The front desk person did not activate our room key, we had to return and have that done. On the wall next to our bed was snot or something, perhaps jam, smeared on the wall. Why wouldn't the staff clean that away? The staff will make this motel drop from three stars to two stars. Breakfast was OK. Coffee was not. Interior walls may be thin, sounded hollow when knocked on. Four stars if you are hunting a bargain and don't want to see dubious people in the corridors.

We (dad, mom, and teenager) stayed there overnight. We arrived by rental car from Orlando airport (because of scheduling and fares better than to Tampa), and left the next day by cruise ship. The hotel is not centrally located, but half-hourly bus service goes by the hotel (check www.hartline.org for Tampa bus maps and other info) - we took the public bus back from the airport to the hotel (via downtown) after dropping the rental car there. Calling a cab from the hotel to the cruise port was cheaper than using the cruise line's connections from the airport, or taking a cab from the airport to the cruise pier. Other than that, we just say "ditto" to the other reviewers' complements on the hotel, breakfast, and staff.
