Couples cruise stop
We stopped here the day before our cruise- party of 6 couples. Hotel is very clean and decor is modern which I really like. Close to all and breakfast is a plus. Staff- very friendly and very customer service oriented. The rooms are clean and quiet and close to the casino.
I stayed for three nights on business for a conference at that TCC. Staff greeted me when I arrived and I soon knew what a great representative she is for this hotel. She is very friendly, very helpful and you can tell she loves helping people. Just wanted to say thank you to all for your friendly assistance over my three days. Great job!
The hotel staff was outstanding for the entire visit. The room was perfect and the location is convenient to Ybor City and other dining options. The morning breakfast was great. Highly recommend if you’re staying in the area.
Clean, affordable, great service
This hotel gets an A+ rating from me because first, the location is very convenient, it is walking distance to all. It has a shuttle that will take you to several places. In addition it is very clean. The staff is very accommodating . The rooms are excellent and the bed super comfy. The swimming pool is heated and the breakfast the next day is excellent.
Best hotel in area
We had an amazing night stay the night. The hotel staff was great. The rooms were roomy and very clean. We all found the breakfast to be wonderful and filling. Clean, comfortable, with great service.
We stayed here before our cruise. Very nice and helpful staff. Loved the hotel shuttle service to Ybor City and cruise terminal. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay again should we cruise out of Tampa again.
So Convenient, Clean and Comfortable
The Quality Inn & Suites Tampa -Ybor City, a fairly new hotel, provided a great experience for my family. We were greeted at the front desk. These gentlemen were great employees; very professional and friendly. During breakfast we were greeted by staff who put the breakfast meal together. She kept everything extremely clean with an appearance to satisfy any appetite. If we’re in the area again, we are definitely willing to stay at this hotel again.
Great quality for the price
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was wonderful. I was here for the Women's Basketball Final Four.The breakfast was great & the the room was comfortable.
This is a well-maintained property with friendly staff. We were in town for a concert at Amalie Arena. The hotel is clean and has a good breakfast with plenty of options to choose from.
Perfect location, great friendly helpful staff and good free breakfast. Rooms are nice and black out curtains are the best. Manager is great and a very very hard worker. Our second visit and it will not be our last. One of the best hotel.
