Good budget hotel

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are quite spacious. However, the free wifi is terrible and my room was really humid even with the AC set to 64. The carpet was damp and the sheets were damp from the humidity in the room. The free breakfast was not great as there were few healthy options. The location is very convenient to USF and Busch Gardens.

Okay but never again

Our room at the Baymont was disappointing. For the cost, it was extremely run down. We requested a non-smoking room and it smelled like stale smoke. The internet was iffy to say the least. Breakfast was good, and some healthy items were available. The pool was dirty, the pool bar, not always open. They do offer shuttle service to Bush Gardens, which we did not visit and the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Good stay

The main reason I choose this place because it was near Busch Gardens and was not so expensive. The staff were good and helping. I didn't like the room but it was okay because I stayed there for one night only. I didn't also like the fact that they want to take deposit of $50 during my stay

Franky Panky Roller Derby weekend

I was set up for late check-in and got in much later than intended. Had no problem w/check-in and desk clerk was very helpful. I traveled w/my daughter w/derby. There were a few teams here this weekend, but it was nicely set and quite for the night. Wild tie at derby & relaxing time @ Baymont. Loved my weekend.

good value

Good experience due to friendly staff. That was important to us. They welcomed us and accommodated each request professionally. Don't expect a hot breakfast, but otherwise a good stay for the price.

Unbelievable Excellent Value in Every Way!

After an exhausting day at Busch Gardens, Baymont Inn & Suites Tampa was an unexpected excellent Oasis! Almost within walking distance, we arrived at our hotel very quickly. We reserved 3 rooms which required special handling, and the Baymont Staff graciously rose to the challenge. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable & upscale with sofa bed in living room suite (separated from private bedroom) with wet bar, full-size 2nd floor sliding glass door to patio in bedroom, 3 pillows each bed + extra pillow & sheet in closet. Hair dryer, iron, ironing board, safe, chairs & table. Great for families!!! Nice size pool + billiard tables. Well-stocked breakfast with large variety & Staff to help waffle-makers. Grab this motel QUICK while it is still bargain priced!!! We didn't want to leave & would stay here again in a heartbeat, enjoy!

GRIMY

I stayed 7 days at this hotel, and from the very start walking into the front lobby the Baymont rugs at the front door were grimy and "black" that's your first impression. Second, the room they assigned me had a grimy look and feeling to it and the shower valve and spout in the bathroom could not be turned off. The room was on the second floor so I took the elevator back down to the front desk to complain, so the girl said she was sorry and handed me another card key to another room, when I arrived at the "new" room it was occupied by someone else !! when I opened the door, I saw a cell phone on the coffee table and smelled of smoke in the room the beds were all messed up. I immediately ran back down the stairs #not the elevator, too dirty# to the front desk again, I said to myself #I'm in trouble# the girl there said to me she couldn't believe it that someone was occupying that room!!, and said she only had #3# non-smoking rooms left with double queen beds, so she hands me three more keys to three more rooms and told me to look at all three rooms and decide , look it was late and I was tired and very "annoyed" at this point I just took the first room I came to on the second floor, I didn't even look the rest. Look, they try to keep it clean but with cigarette butts all over the place and garbage in the parking lots that's just #a disgusting place#. And to add forget about using the pool its always occupied with screaming kids from the surrounding neighborhoods, that's right, non-paying guests, I don't know how this hotel gets away with this, if the hotel owner only knew.
