“One week turned into three!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2009

We stayed at the Country Inn in Seffner while waiting to move into our home. Our one week stay turned into a three week stay. The hotel staff was wonderful. The housekeeping staff kept the room clean. The front desk staff were friendly. The kitchen staff was wonderful as well. We enjoyed our daily breakfasts and the kids LOVED the waffles. The daily afternoon cookies were excellent and a wonderful treat for the children. The hotel also provided pool toys which kept the children entertained. Although we would have loved being in our home a bit sooner, we very much appreciate our Country Inn experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

Very near the intersection of I-75, on I-4, this newish hotel is in a great location. Your GPS will not find it, however, using the Discovery Lane address. It is exit 10 on I-4, the Mango, Seffner exit and the hotel is on the northwest corner of the exit, tucked in by the Lazy Days RV and the truck stop. Check-in is tedious, staff very picky about details and signing no-smoking agreement and early ck-in agreements. The rooms are large! And fresh. Beds luscious. TV channels - hundreds of them - for flat screen tv. Breakfast great - hot meats and eggs included. Pool smallish but fine. It's a definite to return here, and easy to recommend! Also good free wifi.
