A very nice property with very well trained management and staff. Everyone is helpful, the breakfast and evening food is an added bonus. You guest room, lobby and grounds are clean and well maintained. Our room looked and felt cramped but the value is still great. Transportation to the airport was efficient. Good quality coffee, morning eggs were overcooked.

This is a nice property with a convenient airport location. Good night's sleep. Love having a suite so you can't hear the hallway or other rooms as much and much quieter. Breakfast included, nice firepit and outdoor furniture. Property is in good shape too.

Stayed At The Homewood Suites to see a Bucs game this weekend. We stayed two nights. This seems to be a newer hotel, located in an enclave with two other hotels. The staff was very friendly, especially the two breakfast ladies. Front desk personel were efficient and quite helpful. Breakfast here was above average for the Homewood Suites I've stayed in. We were here over the weekend so we didn't get to try the dinner offerings. The entire hotel from rooms to outdoor spaces were very clean. Our room was spacious. The shower was huge with plenty of water pressure. Bed was comfy. Kitchenette was nice and handy. The only downside was the couch/sleeper sofa. We didn't sleep on it but it was uncomfortable to sit on. Besides that everything was tip top, I highly recommend this hotel.

I love this property, but can't give it an excellent rating for one reason. Hard water. You always feel slimy when you get out of the shower.

However, the rest of the property is excellent, and staff is always nice. Great location for food, airport, and highways.

Wish they would get a water softener though!

My husband and I visited Tampa for two nights and stayed at this particular Homewood due to the location near the International Plaza Mall and near the beaches. This property looks very new and is extremely clean and orderly. We started out poorly with mix ups with the hotel shuttle due to incomplete information provided to us, but the hotel came through and provided a cab back to the hotel free of charge due to the error. Because we were so rushed and had less than one hour to drive to dinner they also offered a bottle of wine so that we could celebrate.

Although I wasn't the most verbally patient guest, the staff -- particularly Matthew -- was very apologetic and aimed to please us in any way he could. In the mornings, Nancy was always there to greet us at breakfast and ask about our day and laugh and carry on teasing my husband and vice versa.

When we arrived home, my husband discovered that he had left his precious "Steelers" t-shirt and Matthew came through again and located it along with swim trunks and is mailing them home to him.

I know I have said alot about staff and little about the property but the property is great without any improvements. As I see it, the staff are the icing on the cake at this property. What started out as a bad stay turned into something we really appreciate.

I wasn’t planning on needing a hotel room while in Tampa, but due to some unfortunate circumstances, we were in desperate need. We talked into the hotel around 1 pm, just seeing if there was availability. Samantha, the front desk rep, took care of us completely! She even said we could check in right then to save us from having to come back later. She even made sure we each had a bed since my daughter was a little bummed to be sleeping on a sofa sleeper again. I have a severe allergy to perfumes and cleaners, and Samantha made sure the room was not going to affect me. She even checked with Kendall, a manager, about airing out the room with a machine. They took such good care of us. We even missed the reception by a few minutes one day, and Kendall made sure all 3 of us had a plate of our own! Beautiful property, clean, well staffed, and friendly! The orange water was a fabulous touch too, very refreshing in the Florida heat! Again, I wasn’t planning on staying in a hotel in Tampa, but I am glad I did! It was perfection!

My family of 5 stayed in a 2 bedroom suite over Labor Day weekend. The rooms were very nice and clean. The hotel was very quiet. We never heard the planes at the airport when inside the hotel. Staff was excellent. The woman who handles the excellent free breakfast is extremely friendly and accommodating. The pool is also very nice with plenty of shade to sit under while watching the kids. The hotel is also close to a lot of great restraints.
