The Homewood Suites by Hilton was a very pleasant stay overall. Everything was up to my standards as far as cleanliness and accomodations. The staff was extremely friendly and helped with any extra needs that I requested.

This was an incredible experience. I have stayed at this hotel while on business several times. My room was on the top floor and while there (within 2hrs of check in) I could smell cigarette smoke from an adjoining room. - Very strong and I am very sensitive to this smell. I called down to the front desk and Tracy immediately checked for an available room and had all my items moved- and the next day I had a HANDWRITTEN note from the manager (who is amazingly awesome) and a lovely gift basket of goodies. All of my belongings were moved to the new room and I was MORE than satisfied! TY TY For allowing the team members at this site to be empowered to make decisions that put the customer 1st!! they are amazing!

Hotel was clean and generally in good working order - apart from an elevator which keeps breaking down. Breakfast was ok-ish as long as you don't expect nice fruit with your breakfast! Internet is just about ok from kitchen area but any where else - forget it.

Mick K,

I wanted to thank you for taking time out of your day to review our hotel. We appreciate any and all feedback from our guests. I wanted to also let you know that we have been working with our elevator service company to ensure that our elevator is functioning properly. I apologize that during your stay there were issues with it.

We will be looking into the internet issues that you encountered to try to resolve this issue. I am sorry that it was not resolved during your stay.

We hope on a future trip to the area you will afford us the opportunity to win your business back by giving you the service and experience you not only expect, but deserve.

Thank you again,

You will need to drive to ANY location you wish to visit. Before I booked, I called and asked if anything was in walking distance. I was told that there was a HOOTERS and a McDonalds in walking distance. That distance is just under a mile and the walk is on a road with no sidewalks. I would rather be told the truth. I would have booked the hotel either way as I like Homewood Suites and have had nothing but great experiences staying there. Breakfast ends at 10am and they start breaking down around 930. Other than that, Thumbs Up!

Located on a dead end street, this hotel offers up quiet, clean and comfortable rooms. Spacious suites with full kitchens including pots and pans! Great selection of television channels including pay per view movies. Can't go wrong with this location, ten minutes to the Mid Florida Credit Union amphitheater for concerts!

Make sure when you check out you take your receipt. I forgot mine in the room. I called about 9 AM asking them to email me one. It's now 3 PM still no receipt. The front desk person said they sent it. They also said they could not send it again until tomorrow. Wow, doesn't sound like Hilton service. I asked three friends to send me an email as a test. All three emails came to me in less than 5 minutes. Thanks for the "no help and support".

Dale S,

Thank you so much for your feedback from your stay with us. Sometimes the only way we hear about issues at our hotels is from our guests. I can assure you that we will address this particular issue to make sure no one else inconvenienced the way you were. We should have problem solved much better and ensured we delivered your receipt any way necessary. I apologize that we failed in that regard. I hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise and that if your travels bring you back to the Tampa/Brandon area that you give us another chance to give you the service and experience you deserve!

Thank you again,

Always stay here when we go to concerts at the amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds. Very short drive. Always get the one bedroom, one bath suite for a better price than most single hotel rooms in the area. Great staff, great customer service .... very clean. Love this place.
