“Clean, generic, overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

We stayed at Spring Hill Suites for 3 nights. There is nothung wrong with the place but it offers nothung outstanding either and we feel it is very overpriced. We had one double room plus a single for our daughter. They only have kings so we had to get a king for her as well with no discount. Rooms were $140. each, taxes included, after a 5% senior discount. No AAA discount available. Breakfast was good but not exceptional, scrambled eggs and bacon, oatmeal, yogurt, rolls, dry cereal. Apples and bananas also available. Breakfast staff is great.
Rooms have a sitting area with couch, desk and fridge, good size.
Beds were good but not outstanding.
One problem:
The last day air conditioner stopped working. We called front desk in the evening and they would not send a repairman. We had to move from 6th. to 2nd. floor, leavingn daughter in 6th.
We had a morning flight somthis was not a good solution for us. During breakfast the next morning we overheard the manager saying that we made the request and they were able to avoid (save?) a service call.
Why pay this much for a run of the mill place in an inexpensive loaction ? I think we could have done better. For a much lower price the place is quite adequate.

Room Tip: they are all the same, identical

We recently stayed at the Springhill Suites in Brandon for a 3 day weekend. This was our 3rd year staying at the same hotel and we will continue to stay there when we are in the area.
We attend the state RV show each year, and the hotel is a close drive to the event. The Brandon Mall and other shopping areas are just a couple of minutes from the hotel, which is a great convenience for an avid shopper like myself. The suites are a good size, clean and well kept, as is the entire property. It's a quiet location, even though it is close to the main highway. The staff are always friendly and helpful. That is one of the main reasons we continue to stay there.

We chose to stay at the SpringHill Suites Tampa Brandon because of it's location and rate. When we arrived we were greeted very warmly and the desk staff during our entire stay were very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean but the bathroom showed a little wear in the tub area. The carpet also felt a little strange under my feet. Our television was not working properly when we arrived but it was fixed promptly when we asked about it. The breakfast choices were adequate and filling. We had a nice two day stay here and would recommend it to budget travelers looking for a friendly staff and nice rooms.

After reading many reviews I can say some of positives and negatives in this hotel reviews are accurate,
Positives-Very clean hotel. Hardworking cleaning staff. Helpful staff.Freindly staff
Negatives-Worst Hotel Beds and Pillow my family have ever slept on. Its like sleeping on a cement slab with pillows for sandbags. If you do not need to sleep then this is the place to stay.
Defective Door Locks- Had to get new keys replace 9 times. External doors worked ok, room doors did not.
Limited Parking- The allow cruise passengers to park for the week. This makes a small parking lot even smaller.
Breakfast not great. Same old breakfast choices day after day. Some days warm food was cold.
Evening social hour- get there within the first 15 minutes or good will be gone.
IBAHN Computer-You have 15 minutes to use the computer. It will then disconnect you.
Fix the beds,pillows,locks,parking, and breakfast and this hotel will be great.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be good,

Virginia,



Thank you for taking the time to speak with me last night. I enjoyed our conversation. I've enjoyed my stays at The Springhill Suites and you have been a bright spot in a long day during your Manager Receptions. I will make a point to let my peers know where to stay when in Tampa. Your staff does a wonderful job of making us feel welcome.



Thanks,



Patrick B. Starr

Hmmm... I read some of the review's of this property and I am confused. This property is in a great location. Very safe. In an office type area. The parking lot was extremely well lit and shared a large lot with the Country Inn and Suites next door. We never had a problem parking and we were there on a Friday/Saturday night.

The hotel is very clean. When you walk in the door you can just smell that it is clean. It was decorated nicely and the front desk agent was extremely funny and very nice. Our room was great. The room was clean and comfortable. Being a Springhill I did not expect this room to be overly elegant or full of upgrades; but, it was actually very nice.

In terms of the beds - I challenge anyone to sleep over at the Hilton Garden Inn located 2 miles down the road and tell me that the Springhill beds are uncomfortable. My bed was actually extremely comfortable. It was not hard or too soft. There may have been a mattress topper on the bed.

I did not eat at breakfast - so I can not comment on that. Overall I would definately suggest this hotel if you are in the Brandon area. It is one of the newer properties in that area and in my opinion your best bet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the end. Then you only have one room next to you.

A very nice hotel and great staff! But the beds are the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept on!!! My husband and children were complaining about the beds also.

Room Tip: Concrete beds!!
