“Friendly staff, convenient to highway, Homewood quality.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Overnighted there on a business trip. The hotel is convenient to I-75, and is reachable to downtown by Adamo Drive as well. It is co-located with the Embassy Suites and down the road from a couple of Marriott properties, Courtyard and Fairfield (?). Front desk greeted me by name checking in and checking out, servers at dinner and breakfast smiled. Room was on the 7th floor; a little bit of noise from the expressway, so perhaps try to pick a room on the back side of the hotel. Food was Homewood standard, perhaps a little better. Didn't have a chance to try their gym or pool. Definitely would recommend, and would certainly consider staying there again the next time in Tampa.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the expressway if possible.

I wont go on about the breakfast and dinner as other reviews cover than fairly well. What I have not seen covered is that the hotel is pet friendly (< 50lb) and our dog had a great time. The basketball court has an even larger fence around a back "yard" and we could let the dog run and play with a tennis ball. The location is remote enough that there is plenty of space for long walks in wooded areas (across the street) suitable for squirrel chasing. The couch in our ground floor room (a few steps from and exit door for those early morning and late night bathroom walks) was the perfect height for the dog to lay and watch out the large window which kept her entertained whne we were away. Overall, a great location and staff. One other thing which we did not realize until after we got there was that there is not an oven (range and microwave) so cooking a turkey was not practical unless you want to use the outside barbeque grills.

Room Tip: Best to be away from the highway on the upper floors (front side of hotel) and not near the basketba...

Very nice Homewood Suites! We stayed 4 nights in room 711, a quiet corner room on the top floor. I have stayed in several other Homewood Suites throughout the country & have always had wonderful experiences. Room was clean, staff was very friendly & the breakfast was terrific! Great location off I-75 & near the Brandon Town Center & plenty of restaurants. Only 25 minutes to the airport. Will definitely stay again when next in town.

From now on I know where I'm staying while in the Tampa area. We were very comfortable here and the breakfast was a nice plus. Nice little kitchen too. Cozy bed. Loved the room lay out. We stayed in May and had to return to Tampa in sept. I thought I'd give another place a try. Grass wasn't greener. :(
We know where we are staying on our next. Trip to Tampa.

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip, and it was a wonderful place to stay. The suite had a king bed, was a bit smaller than I'm used to in for a suite, but it was still clean and quiet. The breakfast was hot and great too! It was freshly cooked eggs, sausage, and potatoes, along with all the other breakfast items you would expect at a property like this. The only qualm I had was that the road to get to the hotel was hard to find because there was no sign at the main road, and I was trying to find this place later in the evening. With that said, the hotel itself was wonderful otherwise!

The hotel location wise wasn't far from I-75, I-4, or downtown Tampa, so it was pretty convenient.

We stayed a week in this hotel while helping my parents move. There is nothing to complain about, all of our needs and expectations were met. The best thing about this hotel was the staff. They made us feel like VIPs.

My family and I just had the opportunity to stay at this Homewood Suites and it was above board on everything. I accidentally made a mistake with the room selection and the ladies at the desk rectified it for me at no extra cost. The room was perfect for our family and the amenties are so cool. They actually have a jacuzzi next to the pool. We will stay again.
