“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Very convenient location, affordable, clean rooms and a superb staff. Couldn't really ask for anything more. Had an excellent experience with the hotel manager Paul Romero as well, he went above and beyond to assure I had a great stay. Will definitely be staying here again as soon as I can.

The Good: Close to the Tampa Airport (but not too close where you'd hear planes) and easy to find from the toll road or back streets. Sufficient parking. Friendly and efficient check-in personnel. Room was big enough for 2 people to feel comfortable. Hotel, grounds and our room were all clean and well-maintained. We had a rental car, but noticed a shuttle arrived from the airport as well. Plenty of restaurants and fast food places are within 5 miles or so. Even an Arbys close enough to walk to. And a local BBQ place just across the street (on Waters Ave). Check out Dale Mabry Highway for tons more nearby choices if you have a car.

The Bad: Free breakfast was just so-so. If we'd stayed a second night, we would probably have gone to a nearby fast food place for something like an egg-mcmuffin and coffee or juice the next morning instead of eating at the hotel. Or a bigger breakfast could be found nearby as well at many restaurants.

Our room faced Benjamin Street (on the 4th floor, top of the hotel). Traffic noise (many big trucks) from the road woke me up around 6 a.m. Made it hard to go back to sleep. I had the A/C fan turned to "ON", but even that didn't drown out the noise enough for me. If you're a light sleeper like I am, ask for a room on the back side of the hotel. That would probably make a difference.

Room Tip: Light sleepers ask for room on back side of hotel to reduce imposition of traffic noise from Benjami...

We found this hotel easily and were given a lovely room on the ground floor. it was a suite with a separate bedroom, the extra room was appreciated after being cramped on a long flight. Comfortable bed, good bed linen. Nice breakfast. We liked the hotel so much we decided to stay on our return from our trip prior to flying home. The front desk staff was not as friendly, quite curt really, and gave us a smaller room. Still ok though but after the different experience from the first visit, we will not stay again on our return in November.

My friend and I got stranded due to a delayed flight, so we overnighted at this Country Inn and Suites. What a great choice! The manager, Paul Romero, was quite accomodating. He upgraded us to a suite...no charge! The hotel is very well kept. The room and all areas of the hotel were immaculate. The king size bed in the room was most comfortable! Bathroom was a good size and great water pressure in the shower. Hands down...would stay here over and over again! Thanks, Paul! When staying near the Tampa airport again, I will look no further than this hotel!! Amazing place!

I absolutely loved this hotel. I didn't want to leave!! We had a one bedroom suite which was spacious and comfortable. I was very impressed with the dual pane windows, which you could still open to get fresh air which was super nice. I couldn't hear the road out front at all!! This hotel was quiet, clean and comfy. Had a great little spread for breakfast. Everything from oatmeal to eggs and bacon. Very close to the freeway, which was nice. And once again, you couldn't hear it from the room!!! I am a huge stickler for not hearing my surrounding neighbors and cars while at a hotel, and i have yet to stay at a decent priced hotel that actually comes through. The only compaint if i had to come up with one is that the toilet paper is rough. That's it! Will absolutley recommend this hotel to anyone!!

We stayed one night with our son, D in law and 2 grand children on our way to Busch Gardens. We booked 2 king suites. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast had a good selection for us all. We would recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel and I can say is one of the best hotels I had ever stayed at. The staff goes above and beyond to please and make sure that everything goes good and that you feel like at home. And that was exactly what we felt. Breakfast is excellent, the maid service, the managers and it was also a great location. Just what we needed, thanks to them our vacation went from good to awesome. Great hotel we looking forward to stay there again.
