Hubby, kids, and I stayed four nights and were pretty satisfied. The one bedroom suite was perfect, it allowed us to put the kids down and not disturb the kids in a separate bedroom with packing, TV, etc. We were happy with the breakfast, condition of room, and the general area. There is a lot of road construction, which was... More

My family stayed here in a recent visit to Tampa. The room was comfortable and the whole property was very clean. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We didn't rent a car but used the hotel shuttle to get to Busch Gardens ($40 each way for our family). They were happy to drop us at local restaurants because... More

Exterior was being renovated. Road construction outside. Overall first impression was sketchy. Neighborhood seems a bit dicey as well. Room was clean, hot tub was a joy. Romance package was well executed. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast... Terrible. No actual restaraunt.

It's just a low end hotel with the usual amenities. The price paid was good (we got an excellent discount). We are giving it a rating of three because of 2 issues. The rooms facing the backside of the hotel (odd numbered) directly face a FlyingJ truck stop. There are dozens of trucks parked (almost) just outside your window. Very... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel, Country Inn & Suites, Tampa East. We apologize for any inconvenience the construction vehicles caused by starting early with the beeping backup signals but this is something that is not within our control. Please request an even numbered room during your next stay and we will be happy to accommodate... More

When I got to the hotel I found it very hard to get to the property. When I finally got in to the parking lot I found major renovation going on outside. The workers were very unkempt and the hotel couldn't even now the grass away from the construction. The wifi is horrible at best when it actually connects. The... More
