Recent guest reviews

This hotel has been very comfortable. The staff is especially helpful and friendly. They are happy to help with whatever you need. There is a nice hot breakfast buffet each morning in the lobby lounge with a fireplace. The patio has a gas grill and picnic table, cozy fire pit at the seating area. There is a heated pool and hot tub and a basketball court. It's a relaxed environment that takes good care of it's guests.

I stayed here for a night before I flew out of Tampa. The hotel was very clean and the staff was pretty friendly. They were doing construction when we were there so they were painting above us when we were swimming. There was a shuttle to the airport which made dropping our rental off the night before much easier. Overall, great place to stay.

This is, unfortunately, not a pleasure trip. We are here because my wife is a patient T Moffitt Cancer Center. We needed a place to stay that was “Moffitt Approved”,as my wife will be having a stem cell/bone marrow transplant and there is a certain criteria for cleanliness, air quality, etc. The Residence Inn Marriott here in Temple Terrace, meets all the requirements, but they have a special bonus for us....their staff!!,!

We were so tired from our trip we chose Residence Inn because the one in N. Charleston has great beds! This one, not so much. I have never stayed in a Marriott with such an uncomfortable mattress. It was clean, and roomy enough. Difficult to get in the door with the luggage cart, however, that is a design flaw. Staff a little standoffish.

This Residence Inn is pretty much what you might expect from a Residence Inn. It's clean and the people are very nice. However, a Residence Inn breakfast, while free, is generally not worth the price. In this particular case, I'd honestly recommend skipping the breakfast entirely. I didn't realize the depths to which the poor preparation of eggs could be taken until I stayed here. I got my plate of eggs and what I believe was supposed to be Canadian bacon. One bite and I simply gave up. It was better to go into my day hungry than to subject myself to this hotel's version of what is normally barely acceptable as food. If you're making your hotel choice based on pricing, don't allow the "free breakfast" option be a factor in your decision.

My family has stayed in RI's before. After reading some of the other reviews, no this was not the newest one of them but it is well kept and the staff was top notch. They were very attentive to or needs and we're available if we needed anything. The coffee ran out when I went down for breakfast ..... guess I shouldn't have waited until 915AM to go down (breakfast ends at 10AM) I was shown to the other pot while the staff made a fresh pot. There was someone cleaning the breakfast area each morning we were there (3days). Thank you to the staff for being so nice. Have a blessed year and I will see you again when my plans bring me back to Tampa.

The bed was awful and both of us had a bad nights sleep---very uncomfortable. The water spout in the bathtub is not even fastened to the wall. Many bumps and scrapes on furniture and woodwork. We usually stay at Residence Inns (stay at two in the last two months) but never again at this one.

The hotel is very nice & clean. The Staff is very personable, friendly and attentive. The kitchen offers everyday free breakfast that is amazing! The food is delicious, have a large selection to choose from. On Mondays thru Wednesday they have starting at 6:00-7:30 pm get togethers with appetizers, snacks, salads, etc... wine & beer all free! Jenira and Sal are super attentive and helpful making anything you might need available. It is a great opportunity to come back to the hotel and unwind at the same time meeting new friends who are staying. This hotel is truly Pet Friendly! Is perfect for business commute, families, tourists, singles, couples, or patients attending Moffitt Cancer Center as well as their Families or relatives. It has laundry room facility. Our room was large and had a fully equipped kitchenette, toiletries, and very comfortable furniture as well as the Bed mattress and Pillows. Housekeeping keeps the rooms super clean. They offer the local newspaper free for everyone at the front desk where Tangela, Karla and Gloria are at your service with great smiles and always greeting everyone making you feel welcome. The pool is very nice, also a jacuzzi, barbecue grill, basketball hoop. The grounds are well kept and the area is serene and quiet. In the lobby area they have the snack/drinks/food stand and coolers. Victor and Angel were also very helpful and friendly. We stayed for 14 days and we were very pleased with everything. We had a fabulous stay. They are many people who stay at the hotel who attend, visit or have treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center and the hotel offers them shuttle services. We are Marriott Gold Members and we can attest that we had stayed in many Hotels, this is one of the ones who everyone in the Staff makes you feel special, welcome, and will go above and beyond to make your stay fabulous. We will definatelly stay here again when visiting the Tampa area, and we recommended to anyone who is visiting Bush Gardens or Tampa North.

We rented the two room hotel suite. It was perfect for our family of 6. The hotel has a nice outdoor area, with a pool, hot tub, grill, basketball, and loungers. They did socials a few nights, and offered the guests beer or wine. The breakfast was good, and the food was kept stocked. We would definitely stay here again!

I brought my girls high school basketball team to Tampa to play in a weekend team camp. One of my goals was to room the girls together for the weekend to see how they would bond with each other, if at all. The two bedroom suites with two queen beds, two full baths, a queen sleeper in the living room and full kitchen was just the ticket for what I wanted to accomplish. The front desk staff was very accommodating and tried to get the girls/parents as close together as possible, all the while putting me on a separate floor away from the "fun". This hotel was conveniently located between our camp and I-75 with restaurants and gas stations near by. The rooms were clean, they have a laundry on the 2nd floor and breakfast is free. They have a good variety of entrees for breakfast ranging from scrambled eggs to oat meal. The eggs were a little dry but overall the meals were great. I usually stay at Residence Inns and decided to give my team the experience to stay at a high end hotel. Overall, my experiment went well, we didn't win a game during team camp but the girls loved eating pizza by the pool and getting to know each other, which made the former a little more palatable. We will stay here again next year when we come back for camp and hopefully a few wins.
