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!

My partner and I came to stay for one night and I can honestly say The Haya is officially one of my favorite hotels to visit in Tampa The hotel is decorated beautifully and it is very clean with friendly staff The hotel is perfect for adults/couples

I didn’t hear any screaming kids which was perfect We went to Flor Fina the restaurant inside the hotel and it has this beautiful ceiling art piece in addition to the lightning and delicious food The restaurant has a smaller menu but trust me what they serve is made with care and lots of flavorTransportation is easy to find because there was the trolley train station near by and it’s free to rideThe hotel is a must visit

Jennifer D

Lovely boutique hotel complemented by excellent staff and service as well as a fantastic restaurant and bar While not overly luxurious, the modern styled room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was fine Our room overlooking the pool was quiet

The location was perfect for exploring Ybor and the surrounding areasThe MVP here is the staff From valet and front desk to waitstaff and housekeeping, the Hotel Haya employees were consistently professional, helpful and personable

william harwell

We recently stayed for two nights while in Tampa The hotel staff is wonderful!!! The hotel is exceptional!!!! The beds are pillow soft and the room is immaculate The coffee shop staff and menu offerings will not disappoint

The pool is resort quality The restaurant is four star! Once in, you’ll find it hard to exit the beautiful marble lined showers The water pressure soothes aching muscles All this for reasonable prices I can’t wait to return Thanks to all the hard working staff!!!!!!

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!

Tina Lupien

Hotel staff is A+ and I saw them giving the same great service to everyone Room was large and comfortable The saline pool is great and super clean

The garage parking is pricey but the staff was able to reduce it for me given the amount of time I stayed Only negative was a faint sewerage smell at times but I don’t know if it was the hotel or something from outside Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again

Dylan Rector-Davis

Michelle was amazing up front!! She follow up with me when my suite was ready She made sure everything was put together regarding our requests This is by far the best location and managed Hilton I’ve been too in a long time

NOT RECOMMENDED! Front staff were very nice Decent breakfast ZERO parking either of the nights

Had to park on the street a block away Shared parking lot with another hotel Front desk told another guy to park between the handicap spots Used the coffee maker for hot water and sludge came out from the previous user putting coffee grounds in the wrong spot (which meant it hadn’t been cleaned between stays) Elevator was out, we had to carry our luggage up and down three floors Toilet seat wasn’t seated properly so it slipped and clunked every time you sat on it If it hadn’t been so late, we would have checked out and gotten another room Gave them grace the first night, thought parking was a fluke It wasn’t

jim Schultz

Had 8 rooms reserved for a business golf trip Book rooms months in advance because our golf resort 2hrs away was full for the night of arrival into Florida Was on vacation in Florida with family and called hotel 2 weeks prior to cancellation room deadline to cancel room block

Spoke to an associate to cancel the rooms The associate told me that I needed to speak to a manager to cancel the rooms I was placed on hold for 20 min Associate came back and let me know the manager could not speak to me at that current time and to call back Of course with being on vacation and doing family activities, I forgot to call back I realize that is on myself but when I realized I was charged for the room block for no showing, the manager I spoke to said they had no Idea why the associate did not cancel the rooms on the first call There wasn’t a need for a manager to cancel the rooms in the first place, all associates are able to do the room cancellations I am not looking for a full refund, but maybe just something I have requested on 4 different occasions to speak with a manager at the location through Marriott elite services but have never gotten a call back I just feel that if the hotel handled my call correctly right away, we would of had this this situation

Scott Thompson

Marriott Titanium member who travels a lot and 95% of stays are on Marriott properties Nearly never write reviews, but wish I had known this info prior to my last minute booking, without research Staff was fine, but this hotel simply does not meet Marriott standards

It desperately needs updated Dingy, worn out carpets, musky odor, everything outdated and showing its age What was presented as breakfast was sub-standard as wellAfter first night, I moved to another Fairfield (Tampa Wesley Chapel) and was quickly reminded of the dramatic difference, as the other one is modern, clean, spacious, etcI’m sure staff at the Brandon Fairfield are doing their job, with what they have, but the current state of the hotel should not be accepted as a Marriott property and I felt a review should put out there for those preparing for a stay in the area

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

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

Good morning, I just wanted say what a great we had at your hotel Obviously I don’t understand how the star system works because it says your a 2 star hotel and every review I’ve read says you’re a 4+You Guys were spot on with everything from the pool to the 6 to 8pm cookies and ice cream

Now whoever thought of getting the pancake making machine should get a bonus wow! It is a great thing they come out perfect everyt8me and all the breakfast was spot on The part that I believe helps is you use name brand foods Real butter, the best syrup!!!!!!Thank you for a great stay, your hotel is perfect for visiting all the local museums and the Tampa Port waterfrontWe will definitely use your hotel again

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

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

Attended an awards event there Both conference rooms were well decorated and I loved that one had a sitting area Inside there is a really nice restaurant and seating that makes you feel as though you are sitting in a park outside

Catering staff was very friendly and accommodating (there was no vegan food but they made me a plate full of Romain lettuce) Guests raved about the food

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❣️

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

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!!
