This review is 3 months late! We had my rehearsal dinner here for my wedding in April! All the staff did such an amazing job! We had 48 people for the bridal party and family and we all fit relatively well on the outside area The food we had was Spanish style chicken or pork with rice and beans and a salad It was amazing, we even had leftovers to take home! I would highly recommend this location for rehearsal dinner, baby or bridal shower or any type of gathering under 50 people

Only wish is we would’ve had more time to enjoy the venue! Hope to stay at the bed and breakfast eventually!

It was a fairytale event!!! We used the Sparkman House Luxury Bed & Breakfast for my daughter’s bridal shower The place is incredibly beautiful and very well maintained You feel so important the minute you walk in

The owner/hostess, Theresa, was so helpful in the planning of the shower She gave us advice and helped us put together an incredible and memorable day for my daughter, from the guest list, arrangements of the tables, and an wonderful menu From the minute we walked in Theresa and the chef Serena were so helpful in moving us through the events of the day They were both so attentive to all of my guest Every guest kept telling me what an incredible place this was and that the food was so wonderful too I can’t say enough great things on how wonderful this place was and how happy my daughter was at her shower Thanks you Sparkman House for making my daughter’s bridal shower such a magical event!! If you have an event coming up and you need a great place to hold it, hands down give the Sparkman House a chance, you won’t regret it

Hayley Shields

My husband and I had a Spring wedding at The Sparkman House and it was absolutely magical Theresa made the entire process so easy and she was incredibly accommodating We planned the entire event from North Carolina and Theresa was there every step of the way to help us organize the wedding and work with us on special requests

The rooms for us and our guests were immaculate and the entire home is beautiful The floral arrangements and cake for the ceremony turned out even more stunning than I had hoped! I cannot thank Theresa enough for making my wedding so special and stress free Not to mention how delicious both breakfasts were! If you are looking for a truly 5⭐️ experience book your event at The Sparkman House!

Matt Cronan

Wonderful location for visiting Busch gardens, Tampa zoo, Ybor and sites Hotel staff were so warm and welcoming Multiple times I went down to the front desk with questions regarding our stay and surrounding areas and they always treated our family so well

Breakfast was very nice and room was very spacious and comfortable Certainly will visit again

Weaver Kristen

I stay in a lot of hotels for work and don’t usually take the time to write anything but this one deserves a couple notesGreat blackout curtain if you plan to take advantage of the noon checkout Also a dividing curtain inside the room if you’re travelling with different sleep schedules

Tables that easily move so you don’t have to use the ironing board as a second deskAnd my husband’s favorite, which sounds silly but: a shelf you can see onto so you’re not worried about leaving things sitting on it!A+ rooms and service, even in the middle of the night Will definitely seek out this chain in my travels from now on

Melissa Cornelius

I always stay at Homes 2 suites any time I travel It is always clean, has a pool, complimentary breakfast and I can bring my small papillon who I cannot board and do not have anywhere else to bring her The hotel makes a stay for business or vacation always feel like home

I’m so grateful to have these hotels and with locations everywhere it’s always my go to choice I was a bit disappointed about the location of this particular hotel because of the loud road noise and the girl that greeted me and checked me in was incredibly rude however, I didn’t see her again at all my entire visit All of the other staff members were incredibly friendly and helpful

Beds are clean and super comfortable, check in staff was very nice and helpful The hotel is run down and old, but you can tell they try very hard to keep up appearances It was quiet, and the room was cheap

If you’re just looking for a quick and affordable place to rest up before moving on, this is a decent choice Area is a little sketchy but there are restaurants and shops close by Glory Days across the street is an awesome spot with good food too

Leandra Eddy

Honestly they saved me from a dreadful hotel experience at the sleep inn hotel on Busch garden When I called first not only did the front desk made sure I had a wheel chair accessible room they where able to make sure I got the best deal and they made sure to include that we are a military family This hotel went over and beyond to make sure our family got the best experience

Every issue I had was resolved and when I needed to extend a day in the hotel they went over and beyond to make sure we kept a wheel chair accessible room I would definitely recommend choosing this hotel compared to the other I will definitely continue using la Quinta Inn from here on for any vacation I had a very relaxing and wonderful experience We originally came for a wedding and my fathers doctors appt and till the day we left I have no complaints Very clean, Maids cleaned the room if you want new sheets or bedding when requestedJust a excellent experience with a happy family of 6!

Joyce Klein

I recently had a small house fire and needed a place for me and my cat to stay while my home was being repaired I tried an Airbnb but found it to be unsafe due to animal activity in the walls and flickering lights I was so happy to find a room at La Quinta Inn & Suites

I felt safe the moment I got there All of the staff, including front desk, housekeeping and maintenance, were friendly, kind and helpful When I needed anything they were very responsive My room was clean and the shower had good water pressure with plenty of very hot water The bed was comfortable and all the linens in the room were clean I never saw any bugs anywhere in the building It was quiet and peaceful with a view of a wooded area across from the building Thanks to all of you for making a difficult time a lot easier!

I use to travel to Tampa often for work I’m not sure how I found this place I think I was just looking for the best price in the area, on a short notice

I never expected a place this nice for the price I have never paid such a low cost and received such high value at a hotelThe property had obviously been renovated and revamped from a previous chain hotel, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a renovation of this sort so tastefully done The rooms have been converted into very relaxing resort spa-like living space Bamboo vibe is very cool Breakfast was surprisingly quality, with quality flatware and cloth napkinsBravo to the staff for such a top-shelf restyle to the place It’s been at least four years since I was there last, but If I’m Tampa anytime soon, I already know where I’m staying

Steadystackinent soliders

Hopefully advancement is coming soon …If your on a work trip… forget it NO WIFI ITS HORRIBLE We experienced a fire alarm 🚨 drill with no warning just disturbing! The side door is broken, I have to walk around or park far from my room just to get inside Never had a free breakfast that’s false advertising! The laundry room is a hit or miss

They have a cool staff I can say But if your planning a vacation no pool is here unfortunately! The owner should be more aware of guest needs and property issues it’s been a week, how does no one have WiFi for a week? Pay your bills Mr/Mrs! Hire more people or something keep the hallways clean it’s not a boutique it’s a basic hotel The area is perfect but the service needs more work I guess they never heard you have to spend money to make money cause it’s a fancy name with a cheap experience that’s a red flag

Julia Gregory

I cannot recommend the West Wing Hotel to anyone, and it definitely isn’t a “boutique hotel” I purchased a 4 night stay over Hotwire, and I thought I was getting a good deal as it was promoted as a 3 star boutique hotel Ha

Attempts have been made to upgrade its appearance to a more modern look at some point, but it’s an old motel for which a perfect analogy would be “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” It’s dingy, it’s full of mold, and service is poor For what you pay, you could certainly stay somewhere much, much nicer The first room given to us, we went straight back to the front desk because the mold was overpoweringly strong and my husband is very allergic to mold and mildew We were given another room that was marginally better; by the end of our stay, he was congested, coughing, and breaking out into rashes The room was dirty and wasn’t adequately stocked with linens When we asked the front desk for washcloths, we were told they were out of them Washcloths Not even towels Front desk staff was not friendly, and they told us that room service only comes when you’re ready to check out We visit Tampa a few times a year to see family, and we will never stay at The West Wing Hotel again

Ezgi T.

This hotel is one of the best hotels we’ve ever stayed in! The staff was kind, the room and the pool were clean, the facilities were extraordinary, the terrace garden was amazing! It was relaxing just to sit back at the terrace in the middle of green trees and flowers It makes you feel like you’re blending in the nature and escaping from modern life chaos a little bit The hotel and the rooms smell great from the cleaning but my linen had a blood stain on it

I worked in the hotel business for some time and I know that it’s impossible for some stains to come off, but at least they could have replaced it or put the stained side to the foot level, not the face level Again, I am sure that it was cleaned because of the great smell, that’s why I am still giving 5 stars It was a great stay for reasonable price Thank you to hotel staff!

Letty Torres

The pros were : check in process was great The person at front desk is definitely a great person, very knowledgeable The pool is nice and so are the facilities

Breakfast was great as well, it is available at a cost to you Person working that area was very friendlyCons: the bed is the hardest bed I’ve ever slept on, the door seemed to have paint chipped off on outsideas if some tried to pry it open The chair in room can use updating

Marie St. Louis

The location is perfect and I felt safe during my entire stay The bar and restaurant is right there in the hotel and that made things easy when it came to options The staff was friendly and if you report an issue they try their best to resolve your issue

I wish more was done for Hilton honors members but aside from that my experience at this hotel was a good one

Loved our stay… We came to town for a week to celebrate our anniversary The front desk, Pam, was so warm and welcoming We spent a couple of evenings relaxing at the bar for drinks and food

Brandon was the bartender and he is amazing! He is so friendly and fun, we had a great time talking and laughing Our room was cozy and we enjoyed having a balcony This trip it was nice not to be downtown, but we were close enough to the highway to get everywhere We would definitely come back here for our next trip

Nick Terpstra

Pam at the front desk is one of the kindest individuals I have come across in recent memory Just had to put that out there Get that woman a raise! Now, on to the review :)I stayed on the second floor and the end of the hallway with a decent pool view

The room was really nice Comfortable king size bed, mini fridge, massive TV, beautiful desk with CAT5e hook up, which is great since I do work on the roadThe bathroom is roomy and ornateI booked with Priceline, which can be risky, but it worked out greatFYI, for two nights, I paid $285 I’m pleased, good value

Ramon Scarlett

The staff was the nicest staff I’ve encountered at a hotel in awhile Special shout out to the front desk agent Sana! Very nice and professional young lady She were always friendly and asked how my stay was going every time I walked in the door

She also were able to recommend a few good places to grab food which Gabe the shuttle driver would sometimes take me, he also is always kind and very pleasant Overall, great experience

My husband and I stayed at the Strawberry House for the 1st time this weekend and we have nothing but good things to say The house was so clean and charming Maria is just precious! So friendly and welcoming! Made us feel right at “home”

We stayed in the “Strawberry Room” The accommodations were very nice Maria prepared a yummy breakfast and was very pleasant to visit with Definitely will stay here again!

Katie Singleton

I loved everything about this place Maria is the kindest woman I had forgotten to bring socks and asked her where the closest Walmart was, she went above and beyond

She had a brand new pair of pink socks that matched my outfit perfectly! She saved the day! The homemade food was delicious The theme was on point! So clean quiet and lovely Will be returning on our next trip to the Tampa area! Recommend for anyone wanting a little time to relax

Rob Karnis

With the complete collapse of the hospitality industry in Florida over March break (3 stars and less are unfit for human habitation while 4 stars and more are abusively over priced) we opted out of that mess and found this gemQuaint, clean, warm and welcoming, this affordable accomodation shines under Maria’s capable handsBreakfast was tasty, plentiful and enjoyable

no powdered donut and instant coffee here!Ask about their theme rooms

I stayed here for a few nights for work and from start to end was a pleasant experience for me The check in process was pretty quick, the front desk person was friendly and helpful and was knowledgeable about the area they worked in, which is sometimes rare The hotel feels brand new, it’s clean and bright with my room being ideal, clean, comfortable and quiet

Breakfast was as expected I was very impressed with the quality of this hotel, with the price being at a very good value and not all the hustle and bustle of downtown Tampa Look forward to my next stay in a few weeks

Christine Martin

We recently stayed at this property for eight nights with our family of five and a dog Overall, we had a really positive experience! The staff were very pleasant and helpful The hotel itself was clean and well appointed

The room size was large and comfortable for a our family during our stay We also found the hotel very quiet even with lots of guests and dogs staying there The breakfast every morning was also really niceThe only thing I’d say could use a bit of improvement were some of the amenities Because of Covid, the room cleaning doesn’t happen daily We had scheduled it for midway through and they didn’t come, so we had to ask them again and they came the next day We did run out of toilet paper and needed new towels more frequently, but when we asked, they were happy to oblige The cookware in the room was very limited and were missing things like there were only 3 forks and 2 knives The bedding was also less than desirable It seemed like they were using a bedskirt as the main blanket which was odd We had to ask for more bedding for the pull out couch The final thing was that during our stay, one of the two dryers were broken – leaving only one dryer for the whole hotel to use There didn’t seem to be any attempts to get a technician to fix it so there was often time long waits to dry our clothingBut other than those amenities we really did enjoy our time and would absolutely stay there again

Jennifer Patterson

Nice place to stay, comfy beds & pillows, nice location, friendly staff, free breakfast & parking, Major Problem

the carpet was FILTHY & there were several pieces of old food on the floor!! I know this is a budget hotel but went to the manager & told them this is NOT up to Hilton standards! I’ve NEVER seen carpet that dirty in even a cheap hotel! The manager was very apologetic & moved me to another room immediately If there is a Hilton wherever I am travelling to, I usually stay there because anything less than pristine clean is really not for me Hilton has always met & usually exceeds my expectations, but I was disappointed with the cleanliness of the floors in this one

My wife had a procedure in Tampa so we had to stay 3 days The experience was obviously stressful and a bit scary Every single person we encountered at this Embassy made this experience better

The front desk women were beyond helpful and nice The cleaning crew went out of their way to ensure our room was clean and safe before and after the surgery The cook was awesome and the lady in that area offered to fix my wife something special 5 stars and above to this team! Thank you for making a stressful experience better

A nice quiet RV resort There are more amenities available like washers ($150) and dryers ($1

00), pool, shower rooms, workout equipment, pool table, shuffleboard, and gathering hall There is no cable and internet is available for a fee Propane is available as wellThe lots are dependent on the size of your RV Plenty of room on each site Most of the lots are well shadedAll the folks there are friendly and helpful For a 1 month stay it’s about $70000


I and stayed in this park for the last four years both for the RV supershow and a visit another timeThe management and ownership is one of the best I have found and this park’s employees offer hospitality and are very conscientious

Our group booked sites with Paula today and it is such a pleasure to have an employee that takes cares enough to get things right and that follows through to ensure a happy and successful stayIf this park lacks anything with amenities, the staff more than makes up for it with their attitude and service!First Class Park!

Was a great little house and our stay was hassle free❣️😍 Stayed here with my husband and 3 small children, it was the perfect place to stay for checking out the Tampa Zoo It’s right down the street and can’t beat a full house for the price of most 1 room suites in townOnly recommendation is there was no cookie sheet so couldn’t make fries and nuggets had to be done in microwave

Boo hoo right? 🤣 All in all great stay will be back❣️

Sonja M. Dorsey

location was great,the owner is an amazing personthe house was definitely totally awesome very clean and spacious!! I enjoyed to privacy and the fact that the rooms were away from each other (I was traveling with an adolescent pre teen)! I loved the theme too wonderful presentation comfortable and cozy

I will definitely book again!!! for a longer stay next time

Janet howard

Let’s just say, the place was so awesome! The owner is amazing and the place is very well kept I loved the place so much that I stayed for two consecutive weeks while my own home goes through renovations The area is quiet and central to all your needs! Also, did I say the owner is awesome? Because I can’t leave a review without expressing how accommodating he was for me and my family! Hands up and down!! The best stay in town!!

I’ve stayed in quite a few of the hotels in this area (and pretty sure all of the Choice Hotels) and this one is definitely my favorite The price is a little steep compared to others around, but you do get what you pay for here (good) and it’s worth it, if you’re planning to spend time relaxing at your hotel during whatever you’re in town forCheck in was easy, front desk staff friendly and eager to help

Rooms are modern and fashionable, with lots of space Large bathrooms and pull out couches included in king/double rooms TV and appliances all worked without issue Bed was very comfortable and cleanAs of mid-February 2022, their breakfast is back to what it used to be, and it includes plenty of tasty hot and cold options They also have a small heated pool which I enjoyed, and a fitness center as well Housekeeping is every three nights if you’re on a long stay, and they will also bring you what you need aside from your room being serviced if you call and ask nicelyOnly picky things that I have to say is that there are no TV channel guides in the rooms and the top of the shower curtain in room 320 was torn Also no safes in rooms, but I just took valuables with me each dayI come for the state fair each year and will definitely stay again Huge step up from the Clarion Inn off Adamo (never again will I stay there) and the Quality Inns towards Busch Gardens and Ybor

I came to Comfort Suites to stay the night after attending the Chris Brown and Lil Baby concert at Midflorida Credit Union Amphitheatre This location is in walking distance to the amphitheater and fairgrounds! There is a little lake out front with birds and turtles sunbathing, and a small creek on the side of the hotel All of the staff I came into contact with were so sweet and had no problems answering the many questions I had

The hotel rooms are spacious, very clean, bed pillows and blankets were all super comfortable Bathroom had a great shower with a detachable shower head, good amount of towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, tissues, and the toilet paper was neatly folded which I thought was a nice touch Inside of the room there was a pull out couch, a desk if you need to bring your laptop and work, a phone, a charging block for electronics, a mini refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee pot with coffee pods, sugar, cream, tea bags, napkins There’s also a closet to hang clothes up in, with an iron and ironing board Lots of drawers to fold clothes up in This morning I went down to the lobby for breakfast, which was good They offer pancakes you can make yourself, eggs with packets of hot sauce on the side if you like some kick to your eggs, sausage gravy and biscuits, toast with butter and Jelly, muffins, cereal, coffee, juices I absolutely loved this place! It had everything I needed I definitely recommend Comfort Suites! Really enjoyed my time there

This is a very nice hotel and clean The staff was friendly, the continental breakfast in the morning was good, not that you should expect much out of a breakfast that’s included However it is very nice to have this as an option for a quick grab and go in the morning

My son said the coffee was good! I would definitely stay here again if I were going to another concert or event at the Ampitheatre

This is me if the best Hampton Inns we have ever stayed in and we have been using them for over 15 years now’although the decor is dated and a bit worn, the staff maintains it very well The rooms are clean and the staff responsive if you have a special request

Breakfast is good I just wish they would get some healthier yogurt Would love some plain non or low-fat without all the sugar The lobby is comfortable and almost always has done guests relaxing there and talking to the friendly staff The pool is beautiful and crystal clear and inviting They offer a very good special rate for patients if the nearby Moffitt Cancer Hospital There is even a shuttle if you need a ride there Very compassionate If the decor was brighter and more updated, they would be 5 stars
