This is was a poor choice. It was drab and dowdy. Minuscule parking lot with the narrowest spaces, Obviously more rooms than spots. The room was unbelievably basic for a Best Western.Decor was sad. Stayed there as it was close to the airport, but find somewhere else as the price was the same as other better hotels.

Visited in March 2016. For the price the room with a king bed was fine, clean and big enough for me, staying alone. Traffic around Tampa was often slow and the motel was on a very busy street (Dale Mabry) but the location was very convenient to Kennedy and I-275 so I was happy with that. Two minor points: the...

I was in town for vacation, country music and strawberry festival. Hotel was convenient to where I needed to be. Mid town Tampa is a little low scale, and under construction, no problem with this particular location. Good value for the time spent.

This hotel is well maintained and centrally located. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, clean, and quite. The swimming pool seemed larger than a typical hotel with a large deck with seating. Restaurants and shopping is within an easy walk if you don't want to drive. The parking lot only has one-way in/out and felt safe.

Hotel room very loud especially for a pre departure cruise site destination. Several solitations kicked under door during sleeping times which woke occupants up during sleep time. Staff very unhelpful for transportation from hotel to cruise ship terminal especially when this is a majority of their business.

My husband and I needed a hotel for a quick trip to Tampa to see Benise in concert. We wanted something close to the Tampa Theater and near our favorite restaurant, Acropolis. This Best Western was perfectly located and had a really good rate for our overnight stay. The free continental breakfast was definitely a perk!
