“Great Room Size”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Our one bedroom suite at this location was probably twice the size ( no exaggeration) of our Homewood Suites bedroom in a previous location. We had a VERY spacious corner suite. Guadalupe served breakfast and supper. She was friendly and stayed on top if things as did management. Our chili supper was delicious. The seating area for meals was roomy. Every part of the hotel was clean. The mattresses were adequate. Everything in the room functioned properly. The location was OK. The hotel must be very well soundproofed, at least from outside noises, because we were next to a busy road and barely heard anything.

The only con was the lack of items in the kitchen. There were no regular sized spoons. There also was no utensil for serving pasta, no regular dish soap and no stopper for the kitchen sink. A colander would be nice, too. This is the only reason I did not give the property a five.

I would definitely stay at this property in the future.

When traveling and with my husband and children, we usually try and find a Homewood Suites to stay in no matter what part of the country we travel to. This was by far one of the best if not the best one we have stayed at. The service was outstanding, everyone was so friendly. We received an early check-in around 11am. The dinner was impressive and great breakfast. It was an overall awesome experience...if I knew it was so nice I would have probably stayed a day longer before traveling to Miami. The kids enjoyed swimming and the basketball court, my husband was able to workout at the sister hotel next door, they served beer and wine during dinner and the hotel is very clean. You won't regret staying here...it's home away from home.

Just what the family needed for a 4 day stay while visiting our family in Tampa and St. Pete during the holidays. We were assigned to room 712 when we arrived but the room smelled like cigarette smoke residue and the AC was not working. So a call to the front desk solved the problem very quickly. They moved us and the new room was perfect. Separate sleeping area from the living room and a full kitchen with full fridge, stove and pots, pans and the works ! Can not get wrong with the combo. Excellent WI-FI coverage (critical for a teenager!) Two flat screen TV’s. Whisper sound AC (kind of central type) let us sleep all night without waking up … critical for us. Hot and cold breakfast was very good … plenty of food and well prepared. My only complaint is that to get to the hotel from I-75 you have to drive via a variety of adult oriented establishments along the highway with plenty of advertising along the route. I counted seven in a 5 mile section. But I guess this is Tampa …. But I will recommend this hotel for an extended stay .. by the way, there is a Embassy Suites right next door just in case you want a little more upscale experience.

Room Tip: When you reserve ask for a room on the opposite side of the highway. Even though our room was quiet...

Location was close to where ever I needed to go or visit. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was nice and roomy as well, I loved the fact that we had a full size fridge along with a microwave and a dishwasher. Breakfast and dinner were a great plus; the staff was so friendly and nice. This is my new place to stay when I'm in Tampa,

Room Tip: I was very happy with the whole experience.

After having stayed at the Homewood Suites in Tampa/Brandon, FL, I would have to rate my stay as one of the best. The location was great and easy to locate. I pretty much like my own bed, but was totally in awe by the comfort of the one I slept in for seven nights. The suites had everything + necessary to make one feel at home away from home and were extremely clean, very roomy, and comfortable. Upon check in, Rose was the best realizing we had travelled over 12 hours that day. She could see that we really just wanted to get settled and have a good sleep. Everything necessary was explained with courtesy, thoroughness, and speed. The daily breakfasts and evening meals (Monday through Thursday - manager's reception with beer and wine) were deliciously prepared by Dora and nicely presented. The pool area was friendly and inviting even if you just wanted an outdoor space to relax and enjoy the Florida weather. James was so suited for his position as Operations Manager and made us feel special by going above and beyond to ensure our stay would be the BEST........and it was. I would definitely return to this location if in the area and would totally recommend it to anyone on an extended stay or even for just overnight. It is the kind of place that you have a hard time leaving.
You rate a 10 +++ in my book. Thanks again for a memorable stay..............Melinda J. from Niagara Falls, Canada

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.
