“Nice renovations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Stayed in this hotel for a quick meeting in Tampa and it has been updated well. Room appointments were good. Plenty of space and well kept. I didn't have an opportunity to catch the breakfast, but it looked and smelled good when I went by there! I will stay at this location again.

We needed a hotel overnight to get on the plane the next morning and this was perfect for that! Staff was extremely nice and willing to work with us. Even worked with our friends and got us aide by side rooms and matched our rate even though they walked in without reservations. Super clean and comfy beds! Exceeded my clean standards. Highly recommend!

The rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms were very clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. Thanks to the housekeeping staff! My biggest complaint was the breakfast. We always stay in chains that offer free breakfast -- Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Residence Inn, etc. This was the most disappointing breakfast we have had in years. The dining area was very small for the size of the hotel, and we had to sit in the lobby balancing plates on our laps on the first morning. The selection of foods was small and had such tiny serving bins that they were constantly running out of items like eggs and oatmeal. Most hotels with breakfast have a person constantly circulating and cleaning tables; perhaps they needed more staff to keep all the food stocked and the area cleaned. Also, the hot water in the shower came in and out, presumably when our neighbors were showering at the same time. This is not a pleasant way to start a day with an ice cold spray. Overall, a decent hotel for the price; just needs improvement in the areas of breakfast and the hot water system.

Great location if you need access to the Veterans Expressway or Tampa Airport. Conveniences nearby like WaWa, Target, Walgreens, Chik-fil-a.

We booked the Country Inn for a park & fly. The price was reasonable and the shuttle was right on time. Check in was a little slow, but friendly.

Our room was fine, with good lighting and bedding. I always wish though, that if they're going to provide so many pillows, they should be different from each other, some softer, some more firm. My husband and I both like soft pillows which are very rare, even in high priced hotels. The internet connection was good and they carried my favorite morning TV station, MSNBC, which is not all that common.

Breakfast was OK. I appreciated having real silverware and china, because many places of this type have plastic and styrofoam.

We may stay there again the next time we do a park & fly from Tampa. There's a great Italian restaurant called Gio's, which is in a small mall a couple miles down Water Street. See my review on Trip Advisor.

Stayed at the Country Inn & Suites the night before our cruise. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with checking us in for the evening and assisting in securing transportation for the rental car return as well as to the cruise terminal the next morning. The property was neat, clean, and very well maintain. We had a good nights sleep. There amenities within walking distance of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The price was great. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. There is a Wawa right across the street which is great, because the hotel's coffee is not so good in the morning, but breakfast was good. The rooms are small but worked for what we needed. We did have issues with the water not being hot when ready to take a shower. Called down to the front desk and they reset the water heater... That was a first for me ever! Also the Phone quit working while there and the internet at times took forever to connect to. If you are not there for business, I don't think you will mind the speed of internet, and just remember to call the front desk if you don't have hot water. Over all it was an okay stay.

Room Tip: We had 2nd floor, which was nice. You could use the stairs or elevator.

I was allowed to check in early, which was appreciated since I was a female solo traveler. My room was at the end of the hall and was peaceful. Parking was adequate in front of the hotel and well lit. Pool was decent with a waterfall but there was some debris due to the winds and it was a bit chilly outside so I skipped taking a dip. I did sit briefly in the hot tub which was great. I did not notice the pool towels in a bin until I left the pool area. I used the fitness center in the morning and was pleased to find the equipment in working condition. There were workout towels, although no scale or water cooler. There is a working tv in the fitness center. Breakfast was average with a variety including eggs, bagels and fruit. Business center was convenient. Beds comfortable with adequate pillows and the room/bathroom was clean. There is a Target and many restaurants down the road. This hotel is easy to drive to from the Tampa airport.

Room Tip: 3rd floor at the end of the hall, away from the elevators was very peaceful!
