Quality Inn & Suites Near Fairgrounds Ybor City

Reviewed 21 July 2010

This was a fine hotel; however, the directions from the corporate site say "turn left on E 18th Ave. Hotel will be on the left"--well, people, YOU REALLY TURN ON 49TH STREET. Now, they say that it turns into 18th, but the SIGN doesn't say 49th/18th, so you are tired and drained after driving all day and think you have 31 blocks to go. Why Choice Hotels won't fix this is beyond me; why the city wants confused public safety is as well. At any rate, the breakfast was adequate but not impressive--not much restocking going on--and the pool closes too early. Great value for the $$$.

This hotel was a little hard to find and you might be put off by the neighborhood, but we had no problems. It's pretty new so still in good condition and clean, although housekeeping could do better at vaccuuming as it doesn't seem they get behind doors and the carpet along the corridors was somewhat littered. We were just staying overnight on the road to another destination, so the price and location were great. The staff was friendly and there was a good breakfast put out including hot scrambled egg "patties" and sausages plus a waffle station. We didn't use the fitness center nor any other amenities so can't comment on those. Overall, would recommend.

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.
