“Free Breakfast and Happy Hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The rooms were spacious and clean, the room comes equipped with a small fridge, microwave, coffee machine and a small sink. The breakfast was GREAT omelet station, hot food are, fruits, cereals oatmeal or grits, bread section and coffee, juice and soda section. But it's only served from 6:30 to 9:30a.m so you have to get up early. The service was excellent. They don't have a gift store only a small little closet where you can buy chips and sodas. The happy hour starts at 5:30 and end at 7:30. This hotel is not close to downtown or the airport i was there for a conference so i didn't mind it.

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger.

We flew to Tampa to take in a Lightning vs Jets hockey game. I didn't want to stay downtown as I thought we might go to Busch Gardens the following day and wanted to stay somewhere a little closer to there. I highly recommend this hotel, they have friendly helpful staff, comfortable large rooms with very nice beds and flat screen TV's. The breakfasts are very good and the cook to order omelettes are some of the best I've ever eaten. Thank you for helping make this a positive weekend experience.

The rooms were clean, full of fluffy white towels and most importantly the beds were sooooooo comfortable! The breakfast was delicious and the area was clean. The hostess made sure everyone had what they needed and was pleasant. Great place, good price, efficient staff and CLEAN! We will stay there again.

I travel to Tampa about every six weeks to see my three kids, and I usually stay at the Country Inn and Suites. I have to have something with separate rooms, as my snoring keeps my kids awake! A close family friend who works here in the Columbia SC area at the Doubletree was able to get me a friends/family rate, so we decided to stay here instead. All I can say is "Wow"! My kids were overwhelmed by the hotel's atrium and glass elevators. The room was perfect for us in terms of space and the layout. The breakfast was outstanding - fresh and plentiful, and both mornings we came down we had no wait.

The pool was a good size, and we utilized this as well. The little "store" at the front desk was a nice perk, although a tad expensive, but that's to be expected in a hotel like this. Parking was never a problem, and housekeeping gave us just the right amount of towels each day.

My only issue, and this is being picky, is the $9.95 charge per day for internet usage. I understand that this is a business-oriented hotel, and many travelers are staying here on their company's dime, but for those of us paying our own way, that's a bit steep, considering many other hotels don't charge at all for internet service. I did make use of the business center for what I needed to use the computer for, so it was more of an inconvenience than anything else. But, that's about the only thing I could find fault with.

My kids are already asking when we can go back, so we'll certainly look into staying there again. The location was ideal for me, as my kids live in Riverview, a short 10-minute drive. I think we had a new employee checking us in upon arrival, and Ari was right there to help her get us taken care of in no time. What a wonderful personality to have representing your hotel!

Keep up the great work...you've got 90% of Tampa beat with your service and your facilities!

Room Tip: My kids wanted the 5th floor for the view, but as a smoker (I know, boo!) it would've been much...

I generally always stay here when I am in Tampa for business. It is well maintained and nearby the office. The breakfast is usually very good and the rooms are of good quality. The staff have also always been friendly here. The only small issues I am not a huge fan of is that the nightly happy hour only includes Coors Light and Miller Lite for beer and never whatever the nicer beer they have on tap(last time was Sam Adams). It isn't a big deal though of course, it is free beer after all. The other thing is that I have noticed this location chose not to participate in the current Hilton HHonors promotion for the third quarter and that might be enough for me to try one of the other area Hilton brand hotels on my next trip this month(the Homewood next door isn't participating either but several others are nearby). Overall though it is a quality hotel I enjoy staying in.
