Bathroom was dirty with hair all over the floor The toilet had yellow stains as it had not been cleaned A tag from another guests cloths was also on the bathroom floor

The glass shower door in room 228 is off track and loose Very dangerous to shower in Woke up Sunday morning to get a shower before traveling back home and there was no hot water So we could not shower before driving 6 hours back home Cleanliness of our room was poor Will not be back when traveling for work to this location

Warning *** I’m having a “Karen” moment! LolSummary- I like this hotel, a lot in fact The service is great, it’s very clean, quite comfortable but, it’s the little things that get meA little back story, my husband and I come to Tampa once a month

We live in Miami and my husband works remotely from home The company he works for, is based here in Tampa and he comes up for his monthly engineering meetings So, we’re here…a lot! LolLike I stated before, I like this hotel The beds are some of the best! The service is really impeccable The grounds are kept nice, they have a gym and an indoor heated pool, so even if it’s a wee bit cold out you can still have some good ole Florida fun!What I don’t like, and it really chaps my hide, 🤣 is the fact that you have to OVER pay for every little tiny thing here For instance, there’s no breakfast Like not even a muffin! There is really bad coffee in the room where they give you 2 sugars and 1 little powdered creamer Some of these little packages have napkins and stir sticks, some don’t Oh, and did I mention it’s really bad…like bad badAnd I know, a lot of people are going to nitpick at the fact that I’m rating them 3 stars because of coffee and breakfast, (I told you I was having a Karen moment) but the fact remains that when I spend $412 for 2 nights at a hotel, with minimal services (because they’ve laid off the majority of their employees so they don’t have to give daily housekeeping room checks, so they can pocket more profit and blame it on the pandemic! Oh yeah, I said it, go watch Adam ruins everything about Covid and Hotels!) I do expect a muffin or at least a dang cup of coffee to be freeThe odd part is, we’ve stayed at this hotel enough that when my husband and I went to Tulsa, OK for our kiddos wedding, I made sure to look for a Marriott Courtyard for us to stay in We encountered the same service, comfort and amenities but, they served a rather large and nice breakfast with coffees, juices, milks etcBut after this, after being charged $203 for a small cup of coffee, I think my husband and will be staying at the Hyatt up the road We were staying there for a while when we were making these trips and I decided, “why not shake it up and stay at the Marriott…”I think we’ll be going back Not for nothing but, they have an enormous breakfast and coffee bar! 😉

Check in was horrible staff was rude Room was dirty dust every where and black mold on the pictrue in the bathroom A room that sleeps 4 but they did not provide any pillows for the pull out sofa and front desk said they were out

Only one working elevator that’s really did not work it would randomly pick floors to stop on and doors would not open all the way Very much not worth $175 a night

This place is the BEST! I recently stayed for a weekend and accidently left my work computer in my room I realized when I got home The office manager and staff were so helpful and kind

They helped with the return and I was so grateful I had a shipping company pick up my computer and I received it back in perfect condition Definitely the place to stay! Thank you! Thank you!

Javier Carranza

When getting a hotel like La Quinta Inn, you need to remember you’re not staying at the Sheraton or Embassy Suites You’re getting something affordable, convenient, and reliable which is exactly what it was! So I’m typically not as picky or critical if something is going on I needed a place to stay for a few days and I got a very comfortable stay

Rooms were a little outdated but cozy, breakfast was nice but there wasn’t much variety And all of that is fine! It’s not the Sheraton rememberThe location to Busch Gardens was awesome and a short Uber/Lyft away and there were some shops about a 10-15 minute walk away which was convenient The staff was extremely friendly and was helpful in answering any question or dealing with any issue I had They were awesome and a big part of the reason why I enjoyed my stayThe stay wasn’t perfect, there was some issues with the toilet, a little water leaked from the AC window unit and I had to get a new key card because mine didn’t work for my room Did I want this to happen? Absolutely not, but for the price I paid and convenience I was okay with it

magaly ramos

The bathroom it’s too low to the floor do you need to update the room more model The carpet needs to go they look really old! The people works there they’re really nice the lobby everything smells good but they need new carpet update to look nicer! The only thing I don’t like the doors when you go in the room they make tuna too much noise you sure slam doors all night

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

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

Unique Lekrell

I enjoyed my stay here* the staff was nice all around* the room was decent I did not like the sink area, thought the faucet was to close to the sink and I like for my bathroom doors to lock* comfy room for the most part*breakfast was decent (waffles, grits, cereal, bacon, eggs, muffins, bagels, orange juice, apple juice, etc)* u can also buy snacks* one thing I didn’t like is asking for a late check out which would be 11:30

I just needed till 12 ya know I checked in at like 11 that night anyway but nonetheless, it’s understandableI would stay here again; oh and there is a Jamaican housekeeper …wish I got her name…she was very nice and I enjoyed her conversation

NeKesha A.

Honestly, it really was not a bad stay! I was expecting the worst however the front desk staff that checked us in had jokes! The morning staff was very friendly, the evening cookies made my daughters day and the breakfast was a great variety The room was nicely cleaned upon our arrival, they were able to supply the extra pillows we needed for the sleeper sofa and they also had the towels needed as well Overall, great locations, good rooms, nice staff – give them a try, we did! #noregrets

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

My stay was a 10/10! I have to deduct 1 star just from partial cleanliness I did stumble across a roach upon room entry Once killed I didn’t see anymore so I chopped it up to just being a big building, however I’ve been to other hotels without any pests

Morning breakfast is AMAZING A cook to order option or a continental breakfast option The bar at night was also nice The bar tender was a cool guy and pleasant to deal withWill be returning to hopefully adjust to 5/5

Avi Satlow

The hotel is fine and meets my needs However, I am somewhat dissatisfied with these chain hotels eliminating certain amenities such as free breakfast (and charge $1095 for a very limited continental breakfast- no eggs, waffles, etc, without additional charge) and the unlimited 5-mile radius shuttle (now they only service specific locations due to corporate COVID policies)

If they charged half the cost then I would be writing a 4 or 5 star review Now I’m seriously rethinking staying at so called “upscale” hotel chains rather than lower star economy brands The only appeal to this hotel is the proximity to my law school; otherwise, would never in a million years pay $175/night or so (after tax) for this hotel

Jessica Connolly

Came here for a business meeting Very clean and welcoming upon walking in Bar on the side, not quite sure if it was an actual restaurant

Pool and fitness center located in the front The conference room was very nice and perfect for what we needed Fit about 30 people comfortably and it looked like they had a separator too so if you needed more space, it looked possible Great location if you’re from out of town; located near I-75 and the crosstown and anything you could possible need within 5 minutes

Steve Minnich

We were in Tampa for a wedding and stayed three nights in the guest house The guest house was fabulous, lots of space for everyone Main living space was exceptionally nice with river views

The grounds were also very nice We really enjoyed relaxing in the beach lounge chairs and around the fire pit area Unfortunately, we did not have time to kayak or use the pool while there Kris is extremely kind and provided anything we needed Breakfast was excellent and we were offered many choices Loved the homemade muffins, yogurt cups and soufflés

Wendy Imboden

I headed to the Tampa area for an impromptu get-away and much needed rest Stumbled on Riverbend Retreat’s website and booked a week stay I cannot speak highly enough about this peaceful retreat

The home and grounds were more than lovely with lush vegetation and spectacular views of the river The rooms were clean, cozy, and very homey Many extra perks included such as timely breakfast each morning and heart warming conversations with the hosts if you choose Kris and Bob have created a restful paradise on every level Will definitely be back!

Kent Misegades

The owners were very friendly and the facilities were delightful It was surprisingly quiet given its proximity to a large metropolitan are, like an oasis Especially Christians will feel at home here – we were invited to attend the owners’ Bible study group from their church which happened to be meeting at the retreat

We made some great new friends and expanded our knowledge of the Bible, in our opinion tremendous perks for staying here We’ll recommend this to fellow Christians for individual or group stays for a few days of peace in turbulent times

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!

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

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!!

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

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!

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!

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!

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

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

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

From the minute we walked in, it was obvious that this hotel was 5 star From the check in to check out, everyone was very polite and friendly They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was absolutely perfect

They welcome dogs too The room was spotless, you could eat off the floor Great job crew! Looking forward to our next stay with them!

Derek Brown

As a person who is allergic to cats and dogs I get worried when I check into hotels that allow animals and typically stay away from them but was in a pinch I had no issues with any flair ups so either I was in a room that has never had animals or they do a really good job of cleaningCheck in was quick and easy, room was nice and everything was fairly effortless

Larz

They left a big full trash bin :/ the mattress was probably the cheapest most uncomfortable hard mattress I have ever slept on, woke up very sore from it No hot water in shower Have to wait 10 to 15 min to get warm water but hot water not available

No coffee maker in room The place was very generic with a wannabe ikea look but cheaper The lady at the counter in the front was very niceI do not recommend!
