More About Hotels near Forest Hills...

The neighborhood was built around the renowned Forest Hills golf course, for which it was origially named, although the course was later renamed after Babe Didrikson Zaharias. "The Babe," as it's called by regulars, is a public golf course managed by the Tampa Sports Authority.

Getting Around Forest Hills

The HART bus line has routes through many areas in Forest Hills that connect to the downtown Tampa area. Most people, however, would probably be happiest with private transportation like a cheap rental car. Forest Hills is convenient to both the attractions in Tampa and the beaches in nearby Clearwater. 

There are several budget motels on the outskirts of Forest Hills, like the Rodeway Inn, Motel 6, and Red Roof Inn, all located just off West Busch Boulevard. The Springhill Suites and Fairfield Inn in nearby North Tampa are great options, too. 

Timing Your Trip

Tampa's peak season is during the months of May through August, and the "snowbird" season takes up the first four months of the year. The best times for finding hotel deals in Tampa are September through December. 

In February, the Florida State Fair comes to Tampa, bringing thousands of overnight visitors from all over the state. Rooms can be in short supply during Fair week; your best bet may be to find an Airbnb-approved apartment or home, which are often more economical than the large hotel chains.
