Better than I thought

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Comfortable bed and chair in room
Cons: Wireless was weak -- kept dropping connectivity
Location: Cracker Barrel next door for convenience and Bob Evans across the road.
We had to stay a night in the East Tampa area at the last moment and I could not find a room available close that was under $200 except for this one. I was a little nervous knowing it was next to a major truck stop along I-4 and across the road from a second. But when we checked in, we were pleasantly surprised at the room fixtures, the amenities, and the cleanliness. It was very nice, the bed was comfortable, the a/c worked great (a must for Tampa in July), the bed was very comfortable and there was lots of hot water for a morning shower. Breakfast was also good and hot. Would I stay there again -- definitely.

watch out for your deposit

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Pros: 2 king size beds in my room
Cons: no deposit
stayed here because my air condition went out and needed somewhere close to stay from home. They charge a deposit, I still have not received my deposit back, so make sure you find out first how long it will take to get you deposit back from your credit card company. ask if they will take a cash deposit. other than this problem, the hotel and people are very nice and it was very clean

Thank you for the comments. Yes, exactly as you say, the credit/debit companies holds the deposits back. We unfortunately have no control over this matter. But, yes, we do also take cash deposits (which are returned to you upon check-out). Thank you for being a guest at Country Inn & Suites Tampa East. We hope to meet you again.

Nice, comfy hotel

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: The King size beds
Location: Location was great, next to the interstate. Cracker barrel around the corner.
Our stay was great. The rooms and bed was very comfortable. I wasn't expecting to pay additional deposit when we checked in, but they do hold the money when you check out. Everything else was good.

It was great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you. As for the deposit, it is clearly stated on the Expedia website of our hotel under fees. This hotel requires a debit or credit card on file for incidentals.This is not an actual charge but an authorization. Upon check out, it could take from 3 to 14 days for the authorization to release depending on the issuing bank. We have no control over this. This is all up to your banks procedures and policies. We cannot remove any authorization. That is the responsibility of your bank. It's out of our hands after the authorization has been made. We hope you understand and come to visit our facility upon your future trips to Tampa.

Comfortable and Convenient!

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: Convenience
Cons: Air conditioning: either warm or very cold
Location: Busch Gardens, Tampa Veteran's Administration, Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Florida Southern University, Museum of Science
Perfect for proximity to VA, Busch Gardens, and Hard Rock Casino. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast included was nice. Love the coffee, tea, and cookies available all evening and free shuttle service to and from casino. We will definitely stay here again!

Excellent!

Posted Jun 18, 2014
The staff was wonderful - courteous, friendly and efficient. The place was very clean. The only drawback was the distance from restaurants. That would still not deter me from staying there again. It might be the cleanest hotel I've stayed in with the best staffs.
