“Great Hotel for Family and Pets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great Stay. Very Pet Friendly. Rooms, Dining area and hallways were immaculate. Staff was very friendly and sought to assist us at every turn. Because we forget certain household necessities, we were able to purchase a few items (including reasonably priced snacks) from the Manager's Suite Shoppe. There was a baskeball court with rentable basketballs. Great location. Surrounded by other hotels. The suite style was very accommodating for my family. We rented two rooms (mini apartments) with full refrigerator and a mini-stove and plenty of counter space.

The staff at Homewood Suites is the most friendly and helpful. I always stay at this hotel when visiting Brandon. The free breakfast and dinner is very convenient and pretty good. The hotel is currently going through a renovation, and the new rooms are nicely decorated.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Although I didn't need most of the amenities, it was good to know that they were available. Our room was next to a construction site within the building, but the noise was not much of a problem. Overall, this is a solid choice for a short stop in town.

Aside from an unexpected, occasional noise from the A/C unit, our experience was first-rate. The hotel is nearing completion of renovations, which will provide the solid Homewood Suites experience common at other properties.

We're sorry to hear about the noise from the A/C in your room but we will make sure we find the problem unit and fix it so that it is not an issue for other guests. We are so excited about the nearing of our completion and having virtually a brand new hotel! We hope you will come back soon and see the finished product! Thank you again!!

Have had good experience at Homewood previously, so booked this facility for my family during trip to Tampa area. I was not made aware of the extensive renovation that was in process prior to my arrival. Clearly the convenience of the construction crew and hotel staff was priority while the guest experience was secondary at best. We couldn't get elevator service due to service use, so frequently walked the stairs to our 6th floor room. Loud banging in HVAC unit in room kept us up throughout the night, adding to the experience. We moved out of the hotel after one night, choosing to move to another property for the last three nights of our stay.

I am terribly sorry about the poor experience you had during your most recent stay with us during renovation. We have addressed the issue of having staff and contractors hogging the elevator as our main concern is for our guests to utilize the elevators. I am sorry this was an inconvenience for you in the first place. The second elevator being down has also been fixed (Unfortunately not in time for your stay). Again, we are sorry that we failed our goal of a satisfactory stay! We hope on a future stay you will give us another chance at giving you the stay and experience you not only expect, but deserve! Thank you for choosing us, we look forward to serving you again soon!

It was nice to have the complementary breakfast and dinner at the hotel. I was not happy with the location of the Hotel, but I felt safe inside the hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very nice. I had problems with the internet connection at some points. I let front desk know that the coffee maker in my room did not work and they had it replaced by the time I arrived after work. I Always had fresh stock of towels.

It is outrageous that hotel guests are not notified in advance, or warned on the reservation website that there is a renovation going on. It's not necessary to go into the long list of reasons why this is not a hotel to stay at. Any savvy traveller can figure that out. There is no comfort by the many signs of ducks with hard hats scattered around expressing gratitude to the suckers (guests) for patience as they get their "ducks in a row". As a matter of fact, it's an insult.

There are many other places that deserve your money. This hotel does not, and never will again.

cqc8,

Thank you so much for your response. I wanted to apologize for the inconvenience of the construction during your stay. We, as a team, have been working very hard to minimize the construction impact while we are renovating to bring our guests a better, newer hotel. We hope that you will afford us an opportunity to show you the fruits of our labor with the unveiling of the finished product soon! We strive to make sure all of our guests have a positive experience when they stay with us and I apologize we fell far short of this goal during your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Thank you again,
