“Nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

At first, I was getting the "where did you book us now" glares in the car getting there. The location is somewhat remote, it's in an industrial zone right along the perimeter of the Tampa airport. However, do not judge a hotel by its neighbors, this one is clean and worth it. It is not your destination hotel, it is perfect for catching that early morning flight, or cruise, or crashing after landing late at night. When we checked out at 5:30am yesterday, it was too early to catch breakfast. The manager was showing this young employee how to check me out, what questions to ask, etc. etc. Some people might not like that it took a little longer (yeah, two minutes more) but I appreciate that he is showing a new generation how to do things right! Many of the young, unfortunately, do not know what customer service is, probably because they have not experienced it. I appreciate the time the manager took to show her how it is done. Also, five minutes into getting into our room, we got a call from the front desk to inquire if everything was alright with our room. I got no such call from the fancier places I stayed on this trip! Would I stay here again? Yes, I most certainly would.

Thank You for your response! I agree at first it does seem that there is not much around us. But upon further review, you will find that Country Inn and Suites Tampa Airport is a very central locations. We are a few miles away from Raymond James Stadium, George Steinbrenner Field, Tampa Convention Center, St Pete Times Forum and many more. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you soon!

We had a mix-up on our reservation and GM Paul handled it very, very well in a professonal manner. We were amazed at his prompt and courteous manner.
The room was very clean and we would definately stay here again next year.

Vincent was extremely helpful, going above and beyond in assisting us in every way possible. We were kind of 'stranded' at the hotel after check-out, but prior to leaving for airport. Vincent made sure we were not only comfortable and had everything we needed, he made us feel welcome, even though technically we were no longer guests of the hotel. If going to Tampa, we will certainly use this hotel again!

Room large and comfortable, reasonably clean.. Had all the normal amneities. I don't remember if there was a safe. Furniture somewhat worn, carpets stained and not very pleasing. Breakfast included in the price. I got there late and the scrambled eggs were tasteless and dried out.Other than that breakfast was the usual:: waffles, toast, bagels, cereaL, cake.and beverages. Price middle of the road for the area. I can't seem to find anything that distinguishes this hotel from all the other chain hotels I have stayed in. It was fine for a night, nothing great and nothing terrible..

We had a very good stay. The staff is helpful and very friendly. Breakfast is good. They had waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt and oatmeal the 2 days we were there. The rates are also very resonable. I felt like a little more detail could've been paid to the cleaning of the rooms. There was dust on the TV and they forgot to clean out the fridge, Other than that, we had no issues and would stay again.

when we checked in they gave us a room that had not been cleaned, once we told them they apologized and promptly changed our room. Convenient to airport, bed was very comfortable.
Many other hotels had a no cancellation policy, this one did up to 24 hours to checking in. Fair priced.

I am so sorry you got checked-in to a room that was not clean. Upon checking in every customer should never have to open a door to a dirty room that they cannot stay in. We hope that did not change your opinion of our hotel.
We are so pleased you enjoy our beds, we take a lot of time out of each day to make sure every room is 100% comfortable for our upcoming guests. Thank you for your review and we are hoping that you return!

Paul Romero GM, went out of his way to help us with a mix up on our reservation. We really appreciated his outstanding consideration. Paul and his staff are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make our stay with them enjoyable. The hotel is clean and close to the airport. The coffee and cookies are great too. Thank you again Paul for all you did for us. Karen R
