“As an extended stay business traveler I would very much recommend this hotel to other business “road warriors”.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

I have just completed my 3rd stay (53 nights) and have reservation for another 2 week stay. The front desk and housekeeping staff are very pleasant and friendly. I take personal note in the people working at the front desk who always make an effort to offer a “hello” and a “have a good day” when I am arriving or leaving the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, roomy and relaxing which I personally find as a plus after a long (and sometimes tedious) day on the job. The room has a nice size kitchen with stove top, micro, dishwasher and full size fridge (a plus). There’s a couch and a desk. The hotel also offers complimentary internet access (another plus). The floor to ceiling shower is BIG. I really REALLY love the brand new LG flat screen televisions that the hotel just recently had put in all the rooms. HD and “wireless” internet are not too far behind from what I am told. Though I have not fully taken advantage of it, the hotel offers complimentary breakfast Monday thru Sunday (and holidays). There is also a Manager’s reception that offers a “lite” dinner and refreshments Monday thru Thursday. There’s a pool, a Jacuzzi and fitness room. I have made regular use of the fitness room which has two new treadmills (I jog) and an elliptical machine (have not tried that yet). The hotel is convenient to almost anything anyone might need and is easy to get too. I have found that the hotel is about a 20 to 25 minute drive (in regular traffic) to and from Tampa International Airport.

As an extended stay business traveler I would very much recommend this hotel to other business “road warriors” looking for a comfortable and pleasant “home away from home”.

This is one of the newer Homewood suites and I have been staying there regularly since 2008 and I can not say enough great things about this property. They have a great free breakfast in the morning and at 5pm to 7pm each evening they have a managers reception and provide us with free food! They also have complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks at this reception which is every Mon thru Thurs. Eventhough it is located near all the major restaurants, there is no need to go out and spend money for supper. I have a lot of choices in Tampa as to where I can stay but trust me, you can not find a friendlier staff and a place that will feed you for free like this place will. It is a must stay.

This hotel is either a bit older or is very well used. The comforters were very worn with pilling and fraying but the room was clean and smelled fresh. There were plenty of pillows and clean towels. The staff was friendly and helpful when we interacted. The pool area was clean but the hot tub water looked a bit dirty despite the strong smell of chlorination. Other than that, there was nothing unexpected. The fitness room has a couple of treadmills, an elliptical, and some weights. It's not very large but I noticed it getting a lot of use from hotel customers and the equipment appeared to be in good working order. The gates to the pool were padlocked at night so anyone used to coming into the hotel through that door had to walk around. It did eliminate the possibility of outsiders sneaking in which made the hotel seem pretty secure. All rooms are interior, which added to the secure feeling. There is only one entrance to the parking lot (between Homewood and Embassy Suites) so if you pass by, you have to turn around.

It's not the nicest Homewood I've ever stayed in but there are no surprises and you get everything you expect.

The McDonald's across the street has a 24 hour drive through for those getting in late and there is a huge mall in Brandon right down the street from the hotel along with numerous smaller shopping plazas on Adamo Drive (Hwy 60). There is also a Chuck E. Cheese for those with children who are tired of swimming (or those who are big kids inside). There is no shortage of things to do in Brandon and most are easily accessed from this Homewood.

We've stayed here before & both times we were amazed at what a wonderful value this place offered.
Clean, quiet, comfortable & at a more than reasonable price.
A wonderful place to stay.

We stayed here the night before a cruise, and it was perfect! It's very close to the port, and right down the road from all the essential stores you need before going on a cruise, like Target. The room was very large, very affordable, and most importantly the bed was comfortable. Even better, breakfast was included the next morning. Breakfast was hot (e.g. biscuits, gravy, sausage, fruit, waffles, etc.). Most importantly, the service was very friendly and welcoming. A great stay for a great price!

Homewood Suites is our number one choice when traveling. My kids *love* the free breakfast buffet, and I love having a separate bedroom. :) The staff was lovely and helpful. My son and husband went to the pool, even though it was a bit cold (the air was cold--the pool was nice!). My one complaint is that the wifi was in the public areas only, not the rooms.
