“Awesome room great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have to say that I stay in this area every few weeks and this by far is my favorite place to stay. The rooms are all huge, they all have a full kitchen with a full size stove, fridge, microwave, in room I've maker, pots and pans, dishes and silverware. This great for families who want to save by cooking their meals. Every room has 2 large screen televisions. The breakfast is phenomenal and the staff ate very helpful.

We stayed 2 nights at the Homewood Suites Tampa/Brandon. Our room was so nice, roomy and extremely clean. The Hilton personnel were so friendly and helpful. After coming in late one evening, James from the front desk ran to the elevator to bring us cookies! Breakfast was wonderful. I soooo recommend!

Got this hotel on hotwire for a steal. Very friendly staff, great hot breakfast with lots of variety, they even serve an evening meal on weekdays.The rooms are spacious, well equipped and quiet.Pool and hot tub were very well kept. Upscale stay at a 2 star price. Nothing about this hotel was bad.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire at a really good price and cant complain. Clean and quiet hotel isolated from the main road. Room was really spacious and bed was comfortable. The hotel even had a basketball court to shoot around on! Took advantage of the free breakfast and had the free Monday night dinner which consisted of meatballs, potatoes, corn, and a salad bar. Was surprisingly pretty good. To top it off the hotel offered free beer during the evening and the maid even brought two out to me while in the hot tub! Will stay there again.

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...
