We were here for employment interviews for my daughter. Location was perfect, access to rte 4. Clean, quiet, great breakfast and great staff. Previously stayed In a Country Inn in Allentown Pa which was just as awesome. Highly recommend.

Our stay at the Country Inn & Suites Tampa East was excellent had NO complaints. The staff was very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The complementary breakfast was very good with a great selection. The extra bonus of the suttle service to take you restaurants in the area. Will stay again in the near future.

We spent a single night while visiting Busch Gardens. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The complementary breakfast was very good with a nice selection of hot food. All in all, an excellent value for the price.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were able to take advantage of a "stay 2 nights and get 1 free" promotion on the CInns site, so excellent value with that. It was convenient enough to get to the airport and for seeing the Lowry Park Zoo and Electric Manatee Viewing Center it worked well as our base. Room and bed were comfortable. I am a light sleeper and found it difficult to sleep with the trucks and traffic, even with changing rooms after the first night (the others in my family did not get wakened, however). The complimentary breakfast was a great value and there was a decent variety so that everyone found enough to have a good start to the day (including real eggs and mixed berries, important to me!). The staff replenished items regularly and kept it clean and were friendly. The coffee, tea and 2 or 3 varieties of warm cookies in the lobby were appreciated. (One morning when taking coffee out as we were leaving for the day, I accidentally left a bag of shopping I was taking back to the car, and was pleased that it was safely in their front office for me when I returned hours later.) The WiFi didn't work on either of our devices the first couple of days, and initially the front desk could not help us figure out why, as the person in the know was not around, but once they got the info I was told the staff now all had a copy so would not be an issue. The pool is small and kind of exposed to the open, and with the traffic noise wouldn't exactly be relaxing, if that's important to you.

Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that you had problems with the WIFI and the front desk could not help you. We do have 800 numbers in the room that troubleshoots problems with the WIFI.

Clean comfortable room with all the ammenities we needed. Bed was firm but comfortable.The complimentary breakfast was very good. Our room was on the side next to the truck stop, absolutely no noise issues for us. We have already booked another stay in January.

Stayed at hotel for one night on way to a business trip in Orlando. Room was comfortable as was the bed. Friendly staff and no issues with the room. Breakfast was typical buffet fare: nothing notable, but it was free. I have nothing overly positive or negative to write about this hotel. Not sure if a longer stay would have resulted in a different review, but from what I experienced, this was simply a typical hotel. In shopping for hotels in the Tampa area, I did note that this one was less expensive than most, so believe I got more for my money. Pleasantly surprised to find the hotel was next to LazyDays RV, so spent the morning looking at RVs.

Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was better than average as it had eggs, bacon/sausage, do it yourself Belgian waffles and then the usual bagels, cereal, juices, coffee and pastries. It was our first experience with Country Inn & Suites and we will definitely stay in another after this stay. They went the extra mile with towel animals. Wifi worked well. Good location for Busch gardens. Not the closest hotels to the park but good crossroads location for the park and area restaurants/attractions. Right at I-4 and I-75.
