“Robert is a great guy!”
Reviewed 11 August 2010

My youth group and I cam down to Tampa for a wordchangers mission trip. While we were there one night we met Robert. He was a very nice guy and treated us as family. He is also a very good singer and has a great personality. He made our trip a great one.

Sincerely Logan

We knew nothing about Tampa-Food,fun etc. The hotel staff, one in particular was named Robert, this guy was on his game. Robert helped us get our family tickets for Busch Gardens online, gave us directions many of times for food and leisure activities and really enjoyed us asking him. Because of Robert, our stay was worth it. We had 8 people in our party, in less than 24 hours Robert knew everyone of our names and treated us better than family. I work in retail and many people are quick to complain, but how can you we the customer service exceeds your demanding expectations. Robert saved the day, the trip, the vacation. Thank you, Sincerely Benny In Crawfordville.

I took my 14 year old son and his 3 friends to Tampa Skate park...Quality inn is less than a mile away...I passed 2 hotels that looked horrible and am so glad i checked tripadvisor! We had a wonderful experience...I brought 2 air mattresses with sheets..I took one Queen bed and 2 boys took another the other 2 boys had the air mattresses....for our two day stay....Robert at the front desk was extremely helpful and polite and friendly....I would hire him in a heartbeat! I asked for extra towels and 2 extra blankets...the room already had 8 pillow on the beds. The room and hallways were spotless. To top it off free breakfast including waffle makers the boys loved that. They skated all day and i went to Ybor to shop....at $54 bucks a night what a deal!! Thanks Quality Inn for making my stay with 4 boys so pleasant!!!! P.S. the pool was very clean!

Stayed @ the Quality Inn & Suites for Metrocon 2010(Kids went, we hung out @ hotel). I wish I had read the reviews more closely. The corporate site directions are not correct. We were mere yards from the hotel and could not find it!!! We ended up miles away just because of this. The signage in the Tampa area is not well posted, so if you are not familar with the city, call the hotel for better directions. I agree as well with another post, the pool does close too early. Most pools close at 10 or 11 pm depending on the day of the week. The pool here closed @ 9:30 on a Friday in the summer! Unfortunately it was the only chance we had to swim due to inclimate weather. Free breakfast was well stocked (and it was quite busy that weekend) and the staff was polite and friendly. Rooms we had were clean and in very good condition. A/C and fridge was cold. Shower had decent water pressure and was hot. Beds were very comfortable. Housekeeping kept room stocked and clean. Very quiet during our stay regardless of amount of guests and proximity of interstate. Rates were affordable. Location is close to Brandons Westfield Mall, IKEA, Downtown Tampa,Ybor historic district, and not far from attractions. This is a good location with affordable pricing. Just be careful gasing up @ the nearest station. They charged us a dime more for using credit card and there was no notice posted of this practice. Inquire before purchase or use cash. This seems to be a growing trend in most tourist areas in Florida (unaware of this practice elsewhere in US).

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.
