We were visiting the Tampa State Fair Grounds for the Tampa Bay FOSSIL CLUB's Annual FOSSIL FEST 03-11 to the 12th. We had friends staying over night at the Clarion and they invited us for adult beverages and snacks at the outside patio bar. I personally did not eat as I had a huge dinner earlier. However, our friend Debra...

Stayed for 5 days and everything was positive from begining to the end. The breakfast was good with nice variety. Enjoyed the pool. Close to the highway which was a big advantage. Staff was helpfull and kind.

Sorry I didn't look at the ratings first. This is good if you want to hang your hat for a night- the beds were comfortable and the a/c works. The building is very old they don't seem to be concerned about appearances. Free hot breakfast is a plus but styrofoam plates, plastic cutlery and powder creamer with coffee. When I...

When coming to Tampa we usually stay here. We waivered this last time and regretted it. I love the pool area and the people are always pleasant and will work with you on any problem. I would say if you have to stay in the area choose this hotel.

I rated this hotel a 3 because I saw a spider in my room and a roach in my bathroom. Besides the critters, I loved the atmosphere of the hotel in general. The pool area is very nice. The staff were friendly. I really felt safe with 24/7 security being a young lady and traveling solo. There are plenty of...

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...
