“one of the nicest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

stayed over weekend of June 7-9th, 2013.
Staff was friendly, and place looked nice.
After going to the room, we checked out the place. My wife kept asking if it was a 5 star hotel.
I had to work, but wife enjoyed the pool area.
Close to lots of places to eat and shop.
Will add as favorite!

Friendly staff, clean and very conveniently located to fairgrounds, Ybor City and many Tampa, Orlando and Lakeland attractions. The WIFI was sketchy we had to put the computer in the kitchen and it did not work on the iphones. Breakfast was adequate. Kids never got to the pool but everything looked well maintanined.

Room Tip: We booked and one bedroom suite with a kitchen and a single room with a king. Very nice.

We spent 2 nights at hotel and enjoyed both of them. The rooms were very nice for the price paid and the service of the staff left a good impression. The only down side was that the web site stated that they were close to Busch Gardens. As I was soon to learn, it was not all that close ( 20 Min drive), Other than that, We would love to stay again.

We spent two week traveling around Florida attending spring training baseball games. We stayed at the Tampa/Brandon Country Inns & Suites several days. The location was about a mile from I 75 with many restaurants and malls close by. The room was great, the breakfast was great with hot and cold cereal, waffles, bagels, pastries, eggs, sausage and juice. Given the great breakfast the ample breakfast area was always crowded. This hotel like most has those mini pillows, I hate mini pillows! Maybe if enough guests complain they will use regular pillows. The only real negative was the internet connectivity. There was no wired connectivity and the WIFI was so slow as to be useless.

I spent 3 nights at this hotel and enjoyed everyone of them. The staff is excellent and the hotel is extremely clean and quiet. There are a lot of restaurants around and shopping is convenient. I will stay again.

Spent the night here on our jaunt down the coast. Very clean appearance and good first impression. Helpful and friendly front desk staff, always makes such a difference on whether your stay will be pleasant! Our King bedroom was well appointed including microwave and small refrigerator (great for leftovers). Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits included - a personal favorite.

Plenty of places to eat and drink in the vicinity so the location is good. My room was very spacious and clean. Everything worked as it should. The only drawback was there was no safe in the room - other than that, no complaints at all.
