“As a regular at this property it is Consistent Service, Clean, Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Our regional office is close to this property and we stay here frequently. That is the real test of a hotel's systems and routines of guest services, the frequent regular guest. It is always clean, friendly (no matter what time of day you check in), and comfortable. There seems to be a real sense of pride in the management of this hotel and they consistently provide a quality hotel stay. Residence Inn properties overall are a good place to stay on a work related trip or with my family as a whole. This property is set back from the road which is nice, you feel somewhat tucked away from the highway and interstate.

After staying at this hotel multiple times over the last 12 years with my group, we arrived November 15 to find that only 2 of our party of 7 had a room (reservations were made a month in advance). This was attributed to the army requesting to stay additional nights. The alternative offered was a Fairfield Inn nearby and offered to comp our rooms. That's a nice break for our company but a sacrifice to the comfort of our group of heavy travelers. We moved to a Hilton property nearby who agreed to the same rate we would have paid at this Residence Inn, where we most likely will not return.

ResidenceInnGM9719, General Manager at Residence Inn Tampa Sabal Park/Brandon, responded to this review, January 18, 2012
Dear Tallytraveler34,
Thank you for taking the time to review the Residence Inn Sabal Park. I apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment we caused you and your group on November 15th. Unfortunately, unexpected stay-overs do happen on rare occasion resulting in a reservation relocation to a nearby hotel. I am sorry you experienced this. I would like to invite you back to give us another chance. I would be happy to assist you personally.
Sincerely,
Suzanne Salmon
General Manager

Went to Tampa to celebrate mom's birthday. Called ahead to get special room location so my parents did not have to walk far from parking. That request was granted and room was blocked off. Called also to get a recommendation to place close to get birthday cake -excellent recommendation.All the staff we ran into were happy friendly and said hello , is there anything I can help you with. Even front desk staff who gave directions to the hotel. Especially Roger at the front desk.
Room was great, smelled nice, very clean, every thing comfortable and in working order. Would stay if in Tampa area agin. Great location to Casino and Brandon Town Center, nice quiet area.
Thanks for a wonderful time.

We spent one night here while visiting the Brandon, Fl area. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite. It was very nice with nice upgrades. The beds were very comfortable! It's located near a business park, so you have to travel 1-2 miles for restaurants, etc. Staff was very friendly and helpful!!

Went to a concert in lakeland.
Stayed friday, saturday, and sunday nights.
Hotel L\located in a commercial Office Park.
All restaurants closed at Friday about 5pm in park and surrounding
15 mile circle. Spent two hours on Friday and Sunday night finding a decent place to eat.
Exit 10 and Exit 19 on I-4 were it. Cracker Barrel and Carabbas., others too.
After cruising for 1 hour, took the twenty add'l miles to I-4 exits.
No places open near hotel except take out pizza with 2 tables and one mexican fast food take out.
All other were closed on those nights.
Lucky we had a kitchen and brought back food from the leftovers.
They don't tell you you have to become an indian scout at 8 pm at night, pitch black, to locate food.
Delivery restaurants, Days Pizza( and La Famiglia) put me on hold for twenty minutes and I hung up.
La Famiglia had a review of 2 hour wait to receive food, so we passed on calling them.
Too far to travel for food without knowing the area.
No phone book in room, and internet listed only paid advertising restaurants.
So limited at best.
Stay at Residence Inn, Lakeside Village Shop Center ln Lakeland at the Mall.
Other wise Room was comfortable, clean and service. Staff were nice.

My wife and I have been scoping out areas for a relocation while taking some vacation time in the process. This property is halfway between Tampa and Lakeland, not far from I75 and one exit south of I4. We took a ride to Disney, and it was only 1:15 in non-peak times. One exit south on I75 and you're at Rt 60 - go east and you have access to malls, a theater, and restaurants. Food shopping is about 2 miles east on MLKing Blvd. So it's conveniently located in terms of travel. All of the people, housekeeping, front desk, maintenance, and the folks who maintained the eating areas were cheerful and always asking if you needed anything. I know it's a gimmick for Residence Inn, but it is actually nice at the end of the day when someone says "welcome home" even if it's not actually home. Some of the furnishings in the rooms are showing some age, but everything was clean and in working order. Breakfast was always hot and under the watchful eye of the employees who never let anything run out. Dinner time was the same. We used our Marriott Reward points for the stay just because the place seemed convenient geographically, but if I go to this area again, I would definitely stay again, even if a different hotel might be more convenient. Wireless Internet was fast and reliable, and fast enough to watch a Netflix movie with no problems. Computers in the open area were fine and had no problems with printers.
