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!
