Vista Inn and Suites Tampa

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

There were many rooms, however, while price remained same, the accessories in one room were either absent or much smaller than in another. Rented a room for 1 night, then vacated for 2nd night and returned for another 2 day stay. The first room was simple yet accommodating and while not big the bed was comfortable and A/C was sufficient. However on second stay the next room was same price but had no alarm clock and the wake up system wasn't working, 2 weeks earlier a Penske truck hit the main entrance overhang and it had not been fixed with blocking of front entrance for my stsay. Also the tv screen was much smaller than the first room.

Very old hotel, my boyfriend and I found two roaches in the room, cigarette holes on the comforter, there were no mattress pad for the bed just sheets. People were outside being loud until 5am in the morning.

Garbage garbage garbage. Bad experience. Run as far as you can

A non smoking room is close to a smoke room you smelling cigarettes everywhere the stairs looks like it's falling apart. Room was so dusty my husband had an asthma attack , my 8 months old started sneezing I couldn't breath and breakfast??? Just terrible 86 for a night it's a ripped off.

Stayed for two days to visit. Price was affordable & breakfast is standard.

Needs updated but I slept better in that bed than I have in 10 years.

Got trapped in my room for over 30 minutes! Very dirty, heard screaming all night because the couple next door was fighting! Heard footsteps running around the hotel floor at 4 in the morning. Dirty bathrooms and terrible service. If your okay with trashy, then it's fine but I will never stay at another vista inn

Price was reasonable. Breakfast was good, but not large. Lobby and breakfast area were: large, well equipped, clean and both areas had large TVs that worked. Pool area was clean, and water was warm. Room was quite, and bedding was above average.

the free breakfast closed too early !!!!!! members of hotel staff where very nasty except for chastity ! we had no hot water in rooms for 3 days !!!!!!! employees and their friends where very discourteous and offensive with their insults and remarks !!!!! pool was cloudy !

Maid never came in our 4 nights. Cockroaches in room. We left. Did not stay the full time. Paid but stayed elsewhere. Gross

The breakfast was great. Not only was there fruit, muffins, cereal, bagels, cream cheese, coffees but fresh waffles you make yourself were also available. The staff was warm and helpful. The rooms while old were clean. The downside was there was free wifi advertised but we stayed for 6 days and could never connect to the internet. Each time we tried a Bright House page came up asking for money to connect. Staff tried to say it was our computer however, the computer was new and we were able to connect at other places.

the location of the motel was just outside, a less than desirable area,but I did not feel unsafe walking around by no means.There was plenty to do in the surrounding area,otherwise.The motel was in the process of a remodeling,so some rooms were more up to date than others.The staff was very friendly,and the room was clean.For the price,it was worth it.I would stay again.

Location can't be beat if you go to either downtown, Orlando or the other way to Ocala way. Place is right by 1-275 Rooms are big, and pool more than 0K Staff is helpful, always. Value guaranteed

The hotel was very loud and asked for a room change. Staff was happy to move my room but when moved we was downgraded to a room that smelt like cigarettes and didn't have a microwave or fridge like the one I had purchased. Will not be staying there again

The room was okay, but old. The bathroom door hinges were so rusted the door would not close, I mean not at all. The carpet was icky. We just needed a few hours to sleep before we hit the road again so it met our needs, but if we had needed to spend any actual awake time in the room it would have been unacceptable.

Location was great amenities good but needed laundromat onsite room needed TLC but overall good

For the price, this was worth it. I had an early morning surgery nearby at St Joseph's Hospital and decided to stay as close as possible. I didn't get to experience much of this hotel but it was seriously dated. The good: - the lady at the front desk was very nice and friendly. - the room was only $40 - it was about 10 minutes from where I needed to be in the AM. The bad: - really dated (CRT televisions!) - sketchy neighborhood - somewhat dangerous looking facilities (the rubber covering the steps to the second floor was coming off the step and nearly tripped me going down)

Everything looked very old and outdated. It needs a lot of TLC in order for it to look much better. As cheap as it was you do get what you pay for. Overall though, it was not a horrible experience.

I would stay here again, if it was a imperative necessity.
