Pleasantly surprised of the great location to downtown Tampa and the nice pool and atmosphere of the hotel. Breakfast a little disappointing; but good. Rooms were clean and nice....great price for the proximity of Tampa and Busch Gardens, etc. Would stay there again.

The pictures online are NOT what you find once you are there. We were supposed to stay three nights, let's just say we tried finding another hotel within 4 hours of being at the Clarion. We weren't able to and were just so tired from driving that we stayed but left the next morning. The outdoor courtyard is pretty. (Most...

Our first impression was not good when we walked into the room and were consumed with a pungent order. Had to use the small bathroom and the toilet seat was loose. Even though the shower head looked new and big, the tub drain was slow to discharge the water. Made coffee in the morning but had to clean a dirty...

This is an older property with exterior doors to the rooms. As a solo business traveler, this is a concern. There are two floors with an exterior stairwell. The door lock was problematic but eventually worked. The television had no signal. When reported to the front desk, they offered to send someone, but it was 8pm and I didn't want...

Last minute reservation during road and family trip. Overpriced. Old establishment. Room... sink drain slow and tub plugged up... smelled like 'sewer.' Coffee pot not clean; room had 'gaggy' odor; grounds and pool area not clean. Rug had odor. Do not recommend.

I'm usually very positive about the many hotels that I stay in; but, unfortunately this is one place that I would definitely not recommend. From the outside, it looks very inviting, and there are areas that are pleasing to the eye such as the pool area; but, the place needs a lot of updating and general maintenance. As an example,...

the hotel is close to major attractions. The pool area is very attractive with separate pools for adults and kids. The whole hotel is showing its age and could use some updating and maintenance but is priced accordingly. Breakfast is better than most Comfort properties,Staff is very friendly. There was some illicit activity occuring but their security responded quickly. Would...

My husband and I stayed here for business for one night thinking that if the hotel was as nice as the pictures shown we would book it for the entire month of February while here for work. The overall exterior and lobby was nice, but our room was a completely different story. The bed was sagging and you could feel...

I needed a place to stay near the VA Hospital while my husband had surgery. They gave me a VA discount which I thought was wonderful. Nice, big, clean place. Comfy beds and quiet. A little road noise but not bad. Did not have the breakfast. Would stay again.

The hotel was very nicely furnished with beautiful grounds. The swimming pools were well suited for both children and adults. The room was spacious and comfortable and very quiet. The buffet breakfast had a large variety of choices. I would highly recommend this hotel!
