I’d love to give it 5 stars, but I’m not too sure where the additional $20 charge came from One night was already reserved and quoted with taxesNonetheless, the breakfast was actually delicious

Loads of bacon, turkey sausage, breads, juices and wonderful omeletsRooms are exceptional, very clean, AC was good, rooms didn’t smell moldy, pool is cute The beds are comfortable and the rooms are spacious

I would not recommend this hotel The front desk staff is not friendly or hospitable, the hotel elevator was out of service & the one available for service needed serious improvementsRoom service staff was friendly & nice, the beds & pillows are comfortable and nice quality, and the hotel lounge area is nice

Overall it’s the poor customer service that I can’t deal with & broke/ elevator issues

Cassey Johnson

Where do I start???? First, the staff is very accommodating and polite Everyone staff member I walked by said hello Which never happens much these days

The room was very clean I had a cleaning business, so I have an eye for what others don’t see and there was not one issue with my room And believe me, I check I was at the business center and overheard a customer being upset with the staff and she was so very professional I wanted to tell the guy to back off but I didn’t She handled herself and helped the customer resolve the issue It was a amazing Everyone was happy I understand that people have the “DIMOND STATUS” with this hotel chain, but the world has changed Due to COVID, everyone needs to be understanding that businesses hands are tide right now and we all, as a whole, as consumers, as people need to remember we are all in the same battle We all really need to work together harder than ever before to help businesses, whether small or large, get back on their feet, running smoothly I wish people could just be nicer Anyways, this place is amazing I loved it It was hands down the cleanest hotel I have stayed at with Marriott Definitely will be back

Worst hotel experience I’ve ever had Stayed for a week and price changed every day Over charge my credit card upon check out

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 really liked the area outside the pool with corn hole game The front desk said the cleaning staff is outsourced which I’m not sure is working well for them I’m glad we were on the first floor since I had to go to the front desk several times to get things the maid forgot to leave

On one of the days, the towels left were half dryed They were folded and on the rack but wet If I came back to the area, I’d probably look around to see what other choices there are Desk staff was friendly

chrystal gomez

When I walked in to the checkin counter the first thing I noticed was a fresh smell like essential oils The rooms we nice and clean I’m Very picky choosing hotels and I would stay here again

The breakfast was the only thing not up to par, we had to wait over 10 mins because when we came to eat at 8am there was no eggs or bacon We had to tell the lady it was empty before they started cooking more The eggs were not cooked all the way, ended up just going out for breakfast

Eric Dunn

The room was small but nice Everything seemed clean The front desk staff were very friendly and apparently took notes about you from check in

So why 4 stars and not 5? The breakfast Most of the items were dry I know that hotels seem to give the impression that breakfast is something we don’t deserve but let’s do better I should be able to chew the sausage Label the foods you put out We’re still not sure what that one choice was Make sure the juice machine is working Order more strawberry jelly I know that you have plenty of apple and mixed jelly to get rid of How about some real cream cheese? Would almond milk be too much to askIf your response is that no one else does this, then you are in the wrong business Nothing I just mentioned if cost prohibitive

Valene H

The staff was absolutely AWESOME!!! Every shift the customer service was top notch! I had a horrible experience between booking the hotel from a third party to my flight being cancelled until the next morning When I arrived with my mother and daughter, the Assistant General Manager JAMES was so pleasant and took good care of us to the best of his abilityThen there was Loretta, Kyle, Nicole, James (overnight), another female employee (sorry I forgot your name), the housekeeping manager and her staff, and the maintenance staff that I saw in passing… ALL GREAT PEOPLE who provided EXCELLENT customer service!!!The hotel was clean, beds comfortable and amenities up to par! The complimentary breakfast was decent, but each time we went there were items that we ate

The complimentary coffee, tea and water station was always accessible!Great experience and will definitely recommend this hotel if your staying in the Tampa area! 7 mins from the Silvermoon Drive-In and mins drive from multiple stores, restaurants and lakes!

Loved this hotel Great location: had two gas stations, a Wendy’s and Dunkin all next door Easy access to I-4

karlaa c

we booked this hotel because of the positive reviews but after getting there, it was just the opposite right when you walk in there is a musty smell that smacks you in the face- almost like cigarette smell the carpets are so old, and the atmosphere in general is just off

when we got to the room, same musty smell no towels in the bathroom, the water from the sink and the shower smelled so bad not to mention the disgusting couch! stains all over it and it was suppose to be a pull-out mattress after driving for 13 hours we were tired, so we ended up just spreading our blankets on the bed and left first thing in the morning i even woke up with a bite on the ankle would not recommend this place!!

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

Cathy Starkweather

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

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

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

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

Amanda Owens

I spent 2 nights in this hotel while visiting family The mattresses, though a bit hard were fine, but the box springs on both beds must have been in ROUGH shape because they were clunky sounding everytime you moved The room was good sized and very clean though! The breakfast offerings were fine and as expected, but the whole breakfast area was kind of gross

There was no one wiping tables after guests left or wiping the counters in the buffet area! The tables were sticky from syrup, jelly, and juice and the buffet area was only lightly stocked I ended up just grabbing a waffle and some juice and eating in my room because I knew it was cleanThe front desk and housekeeping staff were all nice and I felt very safe at this location

Dani W

Pros: convenient location right off I4, gas and newish Bob Evans restaurant right next door, night and morning front desk employees were efficient and friendly, bed was old and bouncy but slept okCons: room smelled of old stale smoke (especially around the a/c unit and the drapes), carpet was old and had dark dirt stains, bathroom tile grout was old and cracked, toilet seat was looseI understand the hotel is due to be renovated in a few months, but by the smell and looks of our room, this is many years past due The price point of $150 plus tax does not represent a good value

Deb Hollaway

The good Check in was efficient through the Hilton app, although the digital key did not work Front desk staff was friendly and efficient in getting me keys

The room was spacious and physically clean The shower was hot with great water pressure, and it did not leakThe not so good The room decor needs updating It is dark with the color choices The bathroom had exactly 2 towels,washclothes and hand towels Ladies if you require a second towel for your hair, you will need to request in advance The breakfast was free but nothing great If you want a more filling option, Bob Evan’s is next doorThe really bad The room odor This use to be a smoker roomor someone has been smoking despite the rules not to We could not even cover it up with room spray It has seeped into the furniture and the carpet There was a cigarette burn in the sheers The bedspread had torn seams The office chair was delaminating The room chair had cushion that sunk right down on the hard frame, so it felt as if a board was poking through giving the sitter a wedgie There was no charging station options on one side of the bed, which in this century just isn’t acceptableNot sure this stay was worth the value and I am a diamond member We had reservations for 2 weeks from now for another concert event I cancelled and rebooked into Ybor City

The front desk attendant was extreme nice I don’t like to discredit good customer service because people can be people if you know what I mean but this stay was horrible I thought I was in a scary movie

I am an titanium elite member with Marriott so I’ve stayed in a few hotels (for business and for personal) This experience was a joke When I arrived to the room I already knew it was the best The building is extremely old and outdated (that was okay with me I am on business and didn’t care about being somewhere glamorous) but when I walked in the room seemed dirty The fridge was leaking and everything had water stains It looked like they either didn’t clean or they didn’t clean properly What made me complain was the brown stains on the sheets I immediately requested new bed sheets I finally got settled in and I’m dosing off but when I look up there’s a huge spiders next near the curtain with the spider and his hostages The next was so big, I could immediately tell he had been there for months It was so big I thought I was in a Spider-Man movie (not even being funny) I immediately requested to switch rooms It’s now almost 11 pm and I switch to a second room When I turn on the lights , roaches scatter There was even some that stayed on the counter and hung out as I walked through the doors of the apartment to the counter they were hanging out on (clear sign of infestation ) at that point I was scared to sleep at this place I could only imagine leaving my bags here for 5 days and taking an infestation home with me My reservation was cancelled and I was left stranded in Tampa

Sal

When I walked in to check in, I was greeted by two very friendly men I told them what I was there for and that I wouldn’t be able to make it to breakfast They offered me snacks to take for the next day

They also gave me extra coffee to make The room I was in was extremely clean and nice I had enough towels for the two days I was there The bed was comfy and clean When I was able to attend breakfast, it was being kept stocked by a super helpful women She kept everything nice and neat Checkout was easy and quick and I would recommend staying here to others The only downside is that there are no restaurants close by Maybe the closest was a ten minute drive I would stay here again

Matthew Reis

Absolutely fantastic! All the way around! I booked in advance on the Bonvoy app, and called to ask a couple of specific questions The GM, Jake, was extraordinarily helpful and courteous He and the entire staff made us feel welcomed and appreciated

The pool needed a light replacement, but the maintenance engineer worked diligently to make the pool available to us within no time The ladies in charge of breakfast kept the food fresh, warm, and the area clean The house keepers greeted us with smiles every time we walked by The rooms were clean, neat, and the linens were spotless I can not say enough good things about Ms Cynthia at the front desk She went above and beyond for my group as well as every other guest I saw walk in Its obvious that Jake’s hospitable attitude Is the standard at this location I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in tampa It’s close to 75, shopping, and restaurants It was such a wonderful experience going out of town but being taken care of so well

We had a room booked for this hotel and got notice our event was cancelled less than 5 hours before check in due to weather They had every right to slam us with an early cancellation fee even though it wasn’t exactly our fault However, the were understanding and waved the fee

We will absolutely book with them again when the event is rescheduled

10 pm loading a uhaul all day Just looking for somewhere nice to rest 120 a night

Website says 50 dollars non refundable pet deposit They told us 75 Plus airport fee plus city of Lakeland fee Might as well let us pay for electric and water too 260 plus extra fees including a convenience fee All we wanted to do was sleep 6 and a half hours and check out

The front fest guy was overly loud and brown nosing The pool was disgusting and a disgrace for the Hilton brand The guest were allowed to have their pizza box dang near floating in the whirlpool

Those same guest were in the pool and whirlpool with regular tennis shoes on and staff was serving them, noticing it! I was the only person with a mask on and Florida residents have one of the highest cases of Covid19 in the country! The room wasn’t as clean as overtly expressed! Hilton has really lost its touch with modernization, cleanliness perception, and representation! I truly expected better as I’ve ALWAYS bragged and prided being a HH member!

One of the best experiences we have had at a Marriott location The rooms were very clean and the staff was outstanding From the front desk clerks to the breakfast lady

So nice and friendly We even had a woman (I am assuming the Manager) stop by our breakfast table and ask if we were enjoying our stay Now that is true hospitality Thank you all so very much

First impression of this hotel is that it is clean and neat The reception checked us in in a timely manner The room is a bit small but again they are clean, which is really important

The location of this hotel is far from the city center, it is like hidden in a quiet office distract i will say It may not be an ideal location for vacation, but it is definitely much more quiet and peaceful than some hotels closer to the city centerHowever, there were a few things needed to be aware of First of all, due to Covid, they do not have room service We need to go to the front desk to get towels and toilet paper during the stay And since no one came to clean up, we had collected piles of carry out boxes before we checked out I think they may collect the trash during the day somehow, but there wasn’t any clear instruction for us to followSecondly, the maintenance of their room wasn’t doing too well When we just walked in, we saw the air conditioner’s cover was on the floor, the hair conditioner dispenser malfunctioned and the toilet was leaking Actually I opened up the water tank and fixed it for them Also the hand sink in the bathroom has a very weak water pressure, the water just comes out very slow And the thing that bothered me the most was the leak behind the wall or above the ceiling We can clearly hear the water dripping non stop all day The annoying dripping noise is so noticeable especially during the quiet night

We stayed here to attend a concert We had booked a king room We checked in early that morning online

It said king room When we arrived at the hotel the front desk girl was kinda short but not horrible She gave us our room, when we got to the room it was not a king 2 double beds We went back to say we were given the wrong room She said that’s what we booked We said no She basically called us liars We showed her the reservation which clearly said king Then she said something like they overbooked so we were automatically dropped to a lower room Our friends in front of us got a king and the people behind did As well We were treated horribly We had no choice but to take the room for the night We won’t be at that horrible place again Hire friendly staff

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

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

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

Hotel was pretty decent My room was big appeared to be clean There was a cigarette burn on a table

And a carpet tile had slipped where they tried to replace it A bed side lamp was out And only 2 towels in the bathroom One scary note about the shower It was wide open so water can hit the floor and they need a shower mat inside The shower floor is so slippery The hot breakfast was decent

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your resort This site will compare hundreds of booking web sites and typically will have prices much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the best in the area

I have been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few days you for sure will love it I’m sure!Samantha and Too Smooth where very professional, polite, and helpful The room was great and the view of Busch Gardens was great, we saw the fireworks show from our room Great coffee, and breakfast Thank you We will be back The only issue I had was I booked on bookingcom and the was no record of it and I had to pay a lot more for the time we stayed

Troy Windhorst

GOOD:– Seriously friendly staff The staff we encountered at check in and the morning breakfast was the best… and really carries the positive weight of this review– We chose this location for its proximity to Busch Gardens and it served those needs well

You can’t walk straight to the park’s entrance because a wall around the BG forces pedestrians to walk a bit out of the way A brisk walk can get you from hotel to park turnstyle in about 20 minutes– Rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker– Interior designs from the lobby to our room are fresh and modern… really looking good– Breakfast had all the hot items that have become staples… eggs, sausage, steamy oatmeal kettle, waffle station, etc– Digital keys are available on the Hilton app We appreciated the option of being able to check in online, choose the room location, and enter our room without physical key cards– Easy in and out of the parking lot via back streets leading to traffic lightsCAUTIONS:– While the room looked great on the surface, it had some rough edges Some brushed stainless steel surfaces have become rusty… not sure if this has been accelerated by extra pandemic cleaning liquids or just from steamy showers… nonetheless, it needs attention– We needed a screwdriver Not the drink… a literal screwdriver From cabinet handles to bathroom fixtures, there was a bit of giggling going on… every screw needed to be tightened Even the TV wasn’t far from coming detached from its swivel connection None of this caused any inconveniences, but it’s a clear sign of minor neglectSUMMARY:– I wouldn’t necessarily give this hotel a perfect score, but I would not hesitate to stay here again Again, the staff is great… making this a solid choice for the Busch Gardens visitor

Karen Koenig

Had 2 king rooms for family birthday celebration Hotel was even nicer than when we stayed in 2018 The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful

The hotel offers free Uber/Lyft to Busch Gardens from 9:30a to 3:30p which was great Our rooms faced the street and we watched the fireworks from there Continental breakfast very good Pool not huge but refreshingDefinitely recommend staying here
