Stayed one night while visiting Tampa's Lowry Zoo.
Pros: Check-in was smooth. Cozy, laid-back atmosphere. Well-appointed room with a plasma, large work desk area, very comfortable work chair and evening chair with ottoman. Large, functional, well-designed bathroom. Nice tiling work, granite counter, elegant chrome taps. Excellent soundproofing, the entry door covers right to the ground, blocking out all hallway noise. Why do so many hotels fail to get this right?
Attractive outdoor pool and spa (how rare to have a whirlpool outdoors, I loved this feature - note that you need to ask front desk to activate the heater before using). Public areas were all spotless, evidently this is a well-maintained property. Breakfast is included in their already competitive rate. Cookies are available in the lobby during the afternoon and evening. Just a short drive from downtown Tampa, the Tampa International Airport (24 hour shuttle provided) and the wonderful Lowry Park Zoo. It's far enough off the main road and the airport that traffic noise is not an issue.
Cons: Minimal. The water pressure in the shower was weak, and the bathtub tap was loose. The remote control was non-responsive and would not go past channel 13 (you had to manually enter any higher channel). Of the 45 channels, 15 were either scrambled or unavailable, including TWC. Nobody was at front desk at check-out. After waiting 10 minutes, I left a note with the keys.
Overall, a great stay. Many higher-graded properties could learn from the Country Inn Tampa North.
