Best Western Tampa

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Simple, but with everything we needed. An excellent buy for the cost.

given the options, it was the best value i could find

Nice staff. Clean rooms. Great location. Great price. I would recommend this hotel.

Had a quick stopover and came here. Nothing special, nothing bad.

No issues, convenient for my purposes. Good rate. There is nothing more to add. The weather was decent.

Clean affordable room. Can't ask for much more from a Best Western. Friendly staff - morning breakfast was great.

The location was very nice! The rooms were clean and comfortable! I look forward to using the BestWestern again.

Nice clean comfortable-inexpensive hotel incenter of everything-- resataurants,airport , downtown and stadium. no parking charge and free breakfast.

The building is a bit run down, the third floor smells a bit strange and the water tastes terrible. On the other hand, the staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, I would say you get what you pay for - it's an inexpensive place to stay and if that's what you need, then I recommend this hotel..

Although a little hotel, everything was modern. The family suite was quite large and open, with enough room for everyone. We stayed in two hotels on our trip and this was by far the best one.

I was in town for the footbal game. The hotel met my expectations. Great staff and service.

there were cigarettes ashes on the floor of the room, beside the bed.

I just needed a quick place to stay over one night to attend an event in Tampa, and the Best Western was perfect. The hotel staff was very accommodating, since I needed to check in later than anticipated. Also, the room was clean and spacious.

In Tampa for a family event. This BW was a 10 minute drive from my brother's home, and served its purpose as an oasis away from the congregation of people staying there... The hotel is decent, nothing fabulous, but it's inexpensive and has a gym and a small pool in the back if you want to take a dip or have coffee out there... Highlight, the breakfast is extensive and really good in comparison to what is generally offered for free at this level of hotel. Fresh waffles if you like that, as well as HB eggs, fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels, milk, coffee and juice. There is also an IHOP next door, if you want more.

We checked in at this hotel prior to a cruise. The man at the front desk was very helpful and got us into our room quickly. The room was mostly clean, with exception of the toilet in the bathroom. There was dried urine on the toilet seat. It was after 1am when we checked in and we were too exhausted to ask to change rooms at that point. We cleaned the seat with Clorox wipes we had with us and dealt with it. Other than this issue, we had no other problems and would most likely stay here again.

From the other reviews I saw, I was not expecting this motel to be as nice as it was. The lobby was nicely appointed, and the check in was easy. All of the staff, that I encountered were very nice. The breakfast room is big, and the choices included homemade Belgian style waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals, juice, various bread items and good coffee. Our room, #111, was a handicap access room, because we wanted to be on the 1st floor of the 3 story building (there is an elevator). The king bed was comfortable, the pillows were nice, and the towels were good. I wish there had been more of a shelf or somewhere to put my toiletires. And there was not a lid for the commode, so I was worried my stuff would fall in the commode, off the small shelf hanging above it. I didn't go to the pool or fitness center. I liked that in the lobby area there was always a decanter of fresh cold lemon water and coffee and tea. The motel was on a busy street, but good dining and grocery stores are very close. I walked in the surrounding neighborhood during the daytime, and felt safe. I would stay here again, if I had needs to be in downtown Tampa, as I did for this trip. It's a lot less expensive than the downtown hotels, and only minutes away by car.

The hotel is in a convenient location for Tampa. Not stuck too close to downtown, but an easy drive to most places I wanted to go. The public areas were clean and well maintained. The breakfast food was fresh and plentiful. The coffee hot and fresh. The room and bed were were comfortable. The sheets and towels were clean and neat. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and courteous. This was my second visit in two months time, and I booked the second stay at this location because of the people and attention they take with most aspects of the hotel. Wi-fi access was simple, reliable and sufficiently fast. I didn't use the pool, or the fitness center. Though the look of the fitness center was modern, clean, and looked very nice. The minor drawback for this hotel is a lack of an attention to some details when the room was cleaned before me, and while I was there. Specific examples: 1) The cleaner they use in the bathroom made the floor sticky/tacky feeling and I felt the need to wear something on my feet when I was in the room. No barefoot or socks only walking around. 2) They rinsed the in-room coffee-maker's coffee tray each day but did not use a cleaner on it because the coffee oils weren't removed and were visible when before I used it the first time. (I cleaned it myself.) 3) The cover to the ice bucket had accumulated enough dust to clearly visible and even when I placed it in the bathroom sink, they didn't clean it, just replaced it on the table by the window.

It was nice and quiet and great local stay breakfast was great and location was by everything

We enjoyed Best Western Tampa. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. THE most pleasant housekeeping staff I have ever met. There were some equipment issues such as a backed toilet, but we were promptly moved to another room. In the new room, the air conditioner had issues, but it still worked okay. Overall we were very happy!

The hotel meets the expectations. Quiet and comfortable. I'm not 100 sure about how clean it was though. There was a used soap in the bathroom when we arrived.
