Comfortable beds, modern furnishings. We are usually Marriott or Hilton property people but they were booked; BW was available and we have no regrets. Breakfast offerings were a bit less than most...

We booked a smoking room by mistake (our mistake NOT the hotel's) and that was not great. The hotel was sold out so we couldn't switch rooms. The front desk gave us Lysol Spray which helped some but it was still stinky. The bathroom floor was dirty and the mirror was dirty. This is an older hotel and a bit...

We really liked this hotel. The room was spacious and clean. Free Parking, free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and a small gym was included. There is also an IHOP next door if you want something else. The Staff was friendly and helpful. The only downset was that we had to change our rooms one day before our final departure. Downtown Tampa...

This is a nice, clean and comfortable BW. I have only good things to say. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed for a conference held at the Tampa Convention Center. This hotel was just a few minutes drive, but out of the crazy downtown traffic! We plan on staying next year too.

The hotel was located 5 miles from downtown Tampa and very convenient by cab/Uber. Jean was the lady at check in and was helpful with a restaurant near by and had a cab ready for me when it was time to go to dinner. The overall experience was a positive one.

The Best Western is located in a quiet area on main road and is ideal for someone who wants to spend some nights before continuing his journey. Has swimming pool, free WI-FI internet and comfortable rooms. The breakfast was medium and poor, the staff was friendly and very polite.

While this hotel was clean with decent amenities for the price, it does not offer shuttle service to and from the airport. They put out a nice free breakfast. I can recommend it but be prepared to spend $$ on cab fare or rent a car. Also the neighborhood's not so great.
