3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

This hotel was conveniently located and had a free breakfast in the morning and also free WiFi. The staff was mostly friendly.

Our room was comfortable, but kind of dirty. The floors weren't vacuumed well (or at all), there was a Q-tip under the sink (which didn't go away on our second night of the stay), and the halls were dirty as well.

The breakfast buffet was okay, but heavy in carbohydrates. The dining area and lobby were very small compared to other Country Inn and Suites we've been to in the past, so the breakfast times were quite crowded.

The price was reasonable, but we would have appreciated the hotel cleaning service being more attentive about cleanliness.

We'd probably stay here again, but only if there was a significant discount offered or if we booked it using our Carlson Gold Rewards points.

If you look at a map, the location is in fact a few mile due north of one of Tampa International's main runways, but I trusted the reveiws in TripAdvisor and was very glad for doing so. Am I saying this rivals resort hotels? No. It does match up extremely well to the hotels close to the Forum or Busch Gardens at a MUCH more reasonable price. The location was ideal for us. We came to Tampa from Jacksonville, FL for an ice hockey game and a trip to Tarpon Springs. Thanks to TripAdvisor, I looked smart this time. The location was only a 15 minute drive to the Forum and 39 min to Tarpon Springs. For those going to Busch Gardens, save the money for ice cream and dinner by staying here- only 12 min to Busch Gardens. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The biggie for those sceptics - it was quiet. ?There is a small fridge and microwave. Breakfast is above average and includes waffles, eggs, sausage and some fresh fruits. Overall a very pleasant stay. I hghly recommend considering this hotel.

Room Tip: Do not worry about noise from the airport. The location is very close to many main arteries in Tampa...

I stayed for 1 night after a long flight and I was very very pleased with everything about the hotel. Being reitred military and traveling for 5 years post-military, this hotel ranks in the top 5 of the many hotels I booked for business and pleasure. I got a price of well under $100.00 for a last minute Friday night reservation and another great price for my Saturday stay. The hotel is located 3 miles from the Tampa airport. They offer free shuttle to the airport and cruise terminals.
I had a king bed with a desk and separate chair and ottoman. The room was very clean throughout and the bed very comfortable with quality linens. The hotel was very quiet and offered multiple channels (including 4 HBO) on a large flat panel TV as well as in in-room DVD player. Although not a typical buffet full buffet, it offered a free continental breakfast along with eggs/meat/potatoes/waffles in a nice dining area.
The hotel has a great atmosphere with a beautiful design. A comfortable lobby area with nice clean seating in front of a fireplace and a very modern design with detail using lots of wood on from the stair hand rails to the floor.
The room was large enough for 2 people, the bathroom was exceptionally clean and granite is used within the hotel and the bathroom. 2 blocks off the freeway and very easy to find, I had a 4th floor room facing the freeway and there was literally no noise within the room. Room temperature control is done by an in-room digital control so easy to keep it at the right temp. Free internet wi-fi and a very nice staff makes this a place one I would definitely recommend for a Mommy/Daddy weekend away or an over-night before or after a trip or cruise. This is a great place if just to come visit Tampa and surrounding area.
P.S. after reading my own review…I am staying another night just to treat me….

Clean and close to the airport. Staff treated us well even though we showed up from our cruise early.
