“Most helpful GM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We had a mix-up on our reservation and GM Paul handled it very, very well in a professonal manner. We were amazed at his prompt and courteous manner.
The room was very clean and we would definately stay here again next year.

Vincent was extremely helpful, going above and beyond in assisting us in every way possible. We were kind of 'stranded' at the hotel after check-out, but prior to leaving for airport. Vincent made sure we were not only comfortable and had everything we needed, he made us feel welcome, even though technically we were no longer guests of the hotel. If going to Tampa, we will certainly use this hotel again!

Room large and comfortable, reasonably clean.. Had all the normal amneities. I don't remember if there was a safe. Furniture somewhat worn, carpets stained and not very pleasing. Breakfast included in the price. I got there late and the scrambled eggs were tasteless and dried out.Other than that breakfast was the usual:: waffles, toast, bagels, cereaL, cake.and beverages. Price middle of the road for the area. I can't seem to find anything that distinguishes this hotel from all the other chain hotels I have stayed in. It was fine for a night, nothing great and nothing terrible..

We are pleased that you didn't have any problems at all staying with us, but not pleased that you are not over-joyed with our hotel. We strive to do everything we can to make every guest overly satisfied when they leave, so again, i apologize and if there's anything that we can do to change your mind about our hotel please call us directly or email me at countryinnfront@gmail.com

We had a very good stay. The staff is helpful and very friendly. Breakfast is good. They had waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt and oatmeal the 2 days we were there. The rates are also very resonable. I felt like a little more detail could've been paid to the cleaning of the rooms. There was dust on the TV and they forgot to clean out the fridge, Other than that, we had no issues and would stay again.

when we checked in they gave us a room that had not been cleaned, once we told them they apologized and promptly changed our room. Convenient to airport, bed was very comfortable.
Many other hotels had a no cancellation policy, this one did up to 24 hours to checking in. Fair priced.

I am so sorry you got checked-in to a room that was not clean. Upon checking in every customer should never have to open a door to a dirty room that they cannot stay in. We hope that did not change your opinion of our hotel.
We are so pleased you enjoy our beds, we take a lot of time out of each day to make sure every room is 100% comfortable for our upcoming guests. Thank you for your review and we are hoping that you return!

Paul Romero GM, went out of his way to help us with a mix up on our reservation. We really appreciated his outstanding consideration. Paul and his staff are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make our stay with them enjoyable. The hotel is clean and close to the airport. The coffee and cookies are great too. Thank you again Paul for all you did for us. Karen R

This hotel is great!!! A must stay for anyone visiting the city of Tampa. The staff are trained to provide outstanding service, the rooms are clean and spacious and you are located right off the veterans which is so convenient. The manager Paul was fantastic and accommodating to all of our needs!!! I would recommend this over any 4 star hotel in the city of Tampa. In my eyes it's a shoe in for the 5 Diamond award :)
