Our hotel is just minutes away from Tampa International Airport, Raymond James Stadium, Tampa's Downtown, Tampa Cruise Terminal, Ybor, and the Westshore Financial District.

We chose to stay here one night before boarding a cruise. At the airport, we called the hotel after getting our bags at the blue baggage claim. We were directed to the B2 pickup area right outside of the airport. (If we had picked up our luggage at the red baggage claim we would have been directed to a different pickup point), and we waited about 25 minutes to be picked up. It was a short drive (10 minutes) to the hotel. There are several restaurants and grocery stores within easy walking distance. Our room was located on the second floor, and there is an elevator but oddly you have to carry your luggage down 5 steps to get to the walkway where the rooms were located. If you cannot carry your luggage down the 5 steps, there is a small powered lift just a few feet further than the stairway. The walls are pretty thin as we heard our neighbors voices and some road noise as the hotel is adjacent to two main streets. The wall unit air conditioner kept the room cool and when running helped block the street noise. The outdoor pool looked inviting but we did not use it. We liked that our bathroom had a small window that let in natural light. The included breakfast was pretty good with bacon, sausage, scrambled and boiled eggs, waffles and yogurt. All the seating was full at times, but the tables opened up quite frequently. The lady working the breakfast area did a great job keeping everything refilled and the area tidied up. If you need a shuttle to the cruise ship terminal, you reserve at the front desk for their shuttle ($8.00 per person) that leaves at the top the hour (between 9 AM and 1 PM).

For a reasonably priced place to stay before a cruise (and park the car) this place ticked all the boxes. It was clean, comfortable and quiet (we had a room at the back). The front staff were awesome - especially Rick. We would certainly stay here again when we cruise from Tampa even though it's not that close to the port, but a shuttle ride is offered at $8.00 per person and there is a free airport shuttle. Leaving the car while you cruise costs $10 per night, and many people did this although there might be cheaper parking closer to the port.

We choose this hotel for one night for the convenience of having an airport shuttle and a cheap shuttle to the cruise port as we were flying in to Tampa the day before our cruise. The price was good, the hot breakfast was very good and being Gluten free, I was able to eat from the choices offered. The shuttle were great.
My only concern was that I was very sure the bed sheet were not fresh.. meaning previous guest(s) had slept in them. I know when sheets are clean and when they've been used. I arrived very late due to flight delays and just didn't feel like trying to get clean sheets from housekeeping at midnight after a long day of travel delays.

I didn't know what to expect when I walked into the room but i was pleasantly surprised. The room looks like it underwent some modern rehab. Large room with very large king size bed. The refrigerator, though I only used it to store water, was bout 25& bigger than your usual hotel fridge. The bed was very comfortable. I had great night sleep and woke up earlier than I wanted but stayed in bed longer regardless because so comfortable and the blackout curtains worked very well. Check-in was very quick too. I'd definitely stay there again.

This is a nice, clean and comfortable place to stay. They offer free shuttle from the airport and our driver was very helpful in pointing out places to eat near the motel. Front staff was great and made us feel at home. Shuttle to the port costs $8 per person, but still cheaper than a taxi or Uber. Room was clean and had plenty of room. Bathroom was nice but water pressure is lower than I like. Breakfast was normal hot breakfast in a motel. Presented well and hot. Dining area was cramped. Highly recommend staying here.

While staff is very accomodating (Erica), this hotel is much of a let down. First off it is extremely overpriced for the room itself. I generally make Quality inn one of my first choices when we travel we were expecting better.
The room itself was a little larger but worn. Walls are paper thin and the noise is loud from both the traffic and outside activity from others at hotel. Nothing special especially price wise.
While other hotels have opened up for breakfast and can serve themselves this one is still paper bagging it with few choices and then sending you to your room to eat it. Once again very disappointing. They blamed Choice hotels for not letting them open breakfast up yet the morning effort we stayed at another choice hotel fully open and great breakfast go figure!
As for location it is on a busy route main route so traffic is very loud. Shops and restaurants nearby..recommend the Bonefish Grill around the corner.
The pool area was ok.
Shuttle service good, free to and from airport,however if u need a shuttle to cruise port you must reserve it and the cost is $8 reasonable.
Plenty of parking.
Bottom line there are other hotels in area check them out before booking here.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at Quality Inn Airport - Cruise Port. Allow me to apologize on behalf of our hotel for failing to meet your expectations regarding price, traffic noise and breakfast on your recent visit. During winter season price are higher in Florida but we are always very fair and reasonable. Our location is in center of the city surrounded by many walking distance restaurants and business district. Effective April our breakfast bar open for self-serving buffet. I have shared your feedback with management to ensure we handle these types of situations differently in the future. Again, thank you for your time and valuable feedback. We sincerely appreciate it and hope you will give us another chance to provide you with superior service and accommodations on your next visit to Tampa. Kind regards, Sue Cuevas Front Desk Manager Quality Inn Airport Tampa 813-254-3005

I am a choicehotels member and went online to find a hotel to visit my daughter who is in the military and currently living in the Tampa area. On the page there is a rate for $74 per night. When I tried to reserve a room for three nights I received a message that I needed a special discount token. I called the hotel directly and was told that the price had changed and was $76.10 for the first night and $139 for the other two (a Wednesday and Thursday mid September). The normal rate that was crossed out was $109. As I was being explained this I went back in on the page and the same price came up. As I looked closer it is a rate for "Friends and Family" of employees (from what I understood). I don't understand why this price is advertised on their site or why there was no admitting the real reason I was unable to receive that rate. I have returned to the site and that price continues to be listed. In the end I was left with the feeling that this hotel has no integrity and uses this price to try and hook tourists and make them spend more than they would at the nicer hotels in this group. I was hoping that either they would recognize their error and offer to give us the rate as it was their error or at the very least that they would remove the price from their listing, but neither was true.

My trip was going to be in September not August and I was not physically at the location so I cannot comment on the below information, but to submit my experience I had to answer the below.

The shuttle to and from the airport was prompt and friendly! Please not that they only take cards with a chip. I was lucky the man at the front desk let me use their ATM to pay cash upfront but the weird thing is he was able to use my debit card for the $100 security deposit! That was not their fault since I'm waiting for my new card with a chip to arrive.
Room was clean and I loved the large cold refrigerator and microwave! The morning breakfast was good. They make it for you and then you take it back to the room!
There are 2 grocery stores within walking distance and a great Brazilian steakhouse. The #19 HART bus takes you downtown to the riverwalk in about 30 minutes for only $2.00 or $4.00 for an all day pass! Location was quiet and safe but Dale Mabry Ave is a busy major highway in Tampa with some heavy rush hour traffic but Tampa is a major city so that is to be expected! Let me end this by saying Thanks to everyone who works here! It's byfar the best deal in Tampa! I will definitely return again!

We decided on this hotel because of its proximity to the cruise port and airport..Our first introduction to a staff person from Quality Inn was an airport pickup by Dave, the shuttle driver..Dave was extremely personable and helpful, giving us info on where to eat, shop, etc…Upon arrival, we met Sue at the front desk..she too was amazing and helpful and did her absolute best to make our stay a great one..On our way to our room a thoughtful staff person asked if we needed help with the luggage cart..Our room was extremely clean, with a microwave, refrigerator and of course coffee machine..The next morning we had an early breakfast and was really amazed at the choices and again the cleanliness, thanks to Trish who made sure to replenish menu items as needed..we left for our cruise and again was safely dropped off by Dave. Had a wonderful cruise and once again came back to the Inn for one more night before a very early flight home..Sue , Dave, Trish and the entire staff provided us with excellent guest service and I can’t wait to go back and try out their new pancake maker lol

I stayed for two days in this lovely Florida family owned motel. I am used to hotels but the charm, services and all the previously seen great reviews were true.
Pickup at airport and friendly young man on the phone
Quick and welcoming checkin by the young man
Older motel but beautifully renovated inside large rooms
Breakfast was plenty
Guests seemed to be all cruisers
Proximity to bus stop and nice grocery stores of all budgets
Fridge allowed us to keep our day food cold
Beds very comfortable
Laundry on site if needed
We were the only people taking the shuttle to the port early but they drove us anyway
Will come back
Thank you for making us feel like family
