5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Clean. And great breakfast this hotel was very close to family but we were able to stay at the hotel and not have to worry about inconvenience. We did not want to stay with anyone of our families or friends and our own relaxing space at night. The staff was. Very friendly and available for me when I needed them, 24 hours a day. Also the location next to I-4 way great location and quick to Brandon, Tampa, and, Orlando

We were in town for 1 night to attend a concert in town on a Sunday. Costs were a factor and to be honest distance outsde the city were not a consideration. Upon arrival, surprised by the small town fell of the lobby, pleasantly surprised, appeared like your front room. Very nice. Room was a good size for our family, 2 daughters. Room was clean and tidy. View wasn't great, but we were not here for the view. Room was ooposite a busy Interstate Truck stop, however it did not affect our stay one little bit. Hotel was in easy commute of downtown, so great location. Bathroom was nice and clean and plenty of towels, which is always a bonus. After a restful night's sleep we moved toward the breakfast room. We came in with about an hour to run and was pleasantly surprised to see plenty of options on offer. When we realised that the Orange Juice was empty a quick word to the staff, quickly rectified the situation. Half of the family spent a quick hour in the pool before our departure, cold, but what did they expect in late October, even in Florida! Overall, a gem and we will no doubt be back. Fuly recommended.

All of the positive reviews of this hotel are correct. I've been to several CIS locations and this one is at the top of the list. Here's the simple list of why:

1. Great location in Tampa: 20 mins from the airport, right next to the on-ramps for east/west travel, 15 mins to Busch Gardens, gas station next door.
2. Good, consistent breakfast day-to-day
3. Friendly, pleasant staff
4. Clean linens, comfortable bed
5. Light in the ceiling of the shower (not just the bathroom but the shower itself). Nice touch I thought.
6. For Club Carlson members: free snack-filled gift at check-in, free room upgrade

This will be my go-to hotel in Tampa for some time. You can feel good about making a reservation here and expecting your stay to be pleasant.

Room Tip: Room #312 overlooks the front parking lot and gives a slight view of the highway so you can assess t...

Always a nice place to stay! We've been here a few times; staff is always very friendly.
And I love that Country I&S has gone to using real plates instead of the paper/Styrofoam that Holiday Inn Express uses. I'm glad CIS cares for the environment.

Next time we stay, I hope we'll be pickin' up our RV from Lazy Days!!!!!

Room Tip: At first we chose the suite type - where there is a door to the bedroom. My husband thought he'd...

Spent one night at this very pleasant inn. The check in was smooth & efficient. The front desk clerk, Christi was friendly and printed directions to a local destination. Fortunately, she did as our GPS failed.
Our room was more than adequate, clean and furnishing updated.
The freshly baked cookies were delicious and had 4 choices.
Complimentary breakfast was varied; something for everyone. Only complaint, the pillows were small & lumpy!
Overall, it was a short and pleasant stay. We would definitely stay here in the future.

Very great price for this great Inn. Staff, facilities, and food were top notch.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. All requests were greeted warmly and rapidly.

The complimentary breakfast was better than most similar hotels. The variety was good. The food was fresh and cooked well.

I will definitely stay here if I have business/family trips here in the future.

Room Tip: I only had one room (on the first floor, far from office). Would choose this room again.
