“Cannot go wrong with choosing this hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Clean, convenient, friendly...The room was bigger than an all-inclusive in Cancun Mexico. It was worth every dollar. The cookies in the lobby were delicious. The lending bookshelves were stocked withe current reading material for all ages. Breakfast was really nice. There was a variety of breakfast food: eggs, potatoes, bacon (all hot), fruit, yogurt, cereal (even hot oatmeal), danishes, bagels, bread..you could even make your own waffle. Coffee/tea seemed to have been available 24/7.
Great stay over all. Cannot go wrong with this place. Internet access too!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

We only stayed here for one night while attending a sporting event in the area. Very conveniently located to the Fairgrounds. When we arrived, we were greeted with cookies and coffee in the lobby and a friendly desk clerk. The hotel was extremely clean, we loved the extra touches in the room like the towel animals and the room was very comfortable. We enjoyed the generous breakfast with many choices. They even had monthly breakfast menu hanging up. The burrito bar was offered the morning we were there. They had 3 people working in the breakfast area, restocking food, silverware and cleaning all the counters and tables. It seemed like all the staff in the hotel were anxious to satisfy their guests and really went over and above to keep everyone happy. All the employees were extremely friendly and overall we had an excellent experience. This hotel is on our "definite" list if we return to the area.

Stayed here only one night but only because we were in area only for a short time. Everything was great. Receptionist was very pleasant. Room large, clean, and well-decorated. Bathroom good size and fine. In short, absolutely nothing wrong and everything right. Price was very reasonable (we were there on a Friday night).

This Country Inn is now my “official” hotel in the Tampa area. I was very concerned about my projected late arrival and the multiple rooms my family needed until I spoke with Ms. Dhana. She took care of everything. Our rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable (complete with “towel animals” on the beds)–much better than some of the more expensive places I have stayed in the last year. The breakfast area was spotless and the food fresh. It was a nice touch to have china and silverware instead of the Styrofoam plates and plastic cutlery!
Ms. Dhana and the front desk staff in the morning were very helpful and knowledgeable. I am looking forward to my next stay.

This hotel has become our only place to stay when in the Tampa Fairgrounds area. Our expectations are always exceeded with a spotlessly clean room, comfortable bed and pillows, and excellent customer service. Will definitely return!

My husband and I, along with two grandchildren stayed at this hotel in July 2010. We found the hotel staff to be excellent, breakfast was sufficient and tasty, rooms were on the large size and always clean.
