“Typical Homewood Suites plus goes the extra mile for guests”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Always stay at Homewood Suites as we like the extra room by having a separate living area and the choice to cook rather than going out to eat every night. Lately, we have had some pretty expensive and bad dinners out. Figure we can cook better and a lot cheaper ourselves.

This property lives up to Hilton's standards for the Homewood Suite brand. But in addition, the entire staff is more friendly, helpful, etc. than the average hotel staff. One day upon returning from our outing, I noticed 4 or 5 laundry bags hanging on guest doors and I thought it was so unusual for so many guests to be sending out dirty laundry. Then I noticed that each door also had a do not disturb sign on it. Out of curiosity, I inquired at the front desk and learned that housekeeping provides a "refresher" kit to those guest who do not want to be disturbed. It contains towels, soap, shampoo, coffee, etc. How NICE!!!!!! I have stayed in budget "motels" to luxury resorts and have never seen this done before.

The hotel is ideally located central to all of Tampa Bay area: Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. You can be in Tampa is less than 10 minutes, downtown St. Pete in 10 minutes, St. Pete Beach in 20 minutes. A Publix supermarket, Florida's best grocery chain, is right across the street so makes it convenient if you wish to grocery shop.

Only complaint about the hotel is with breakfast. Compared to other Homewood Suite breakfast buffets, the eggs or omelettes were always dried out and tasteless. So was the breakfast meat served that day (bacon, sausage, etc.)

Overlooking that, I would definitely recommend this as a moderately priced, clean, well run establishment convenient to all areas of Tampa Bay.

Room Tip: Book on Hilton.Com. The day prior to arrival you can "check in", see a floor plan and pick...

We checked into the Homewood Suites Clearwater to attend a wedding in nearby St. Pete. We dropped our luggage off and then met up with friends also attending the wedding. We reserved a one bedroom king suite. It was a spacious room with two TV's, a kitchenette and separate living room. We didn't get back to our room until around 2 AM. While getting ready for bed, we noticed there was a problem with the air. Not a good thing with the Florida heat! At this late hour, we decided to cope with it until the morning. Once we turned back the duvet cover, we noticed 2 blood stains on it. We took the duvet/comforter off the bed and put it on the floor. Again, since it was 2 AM, we decided to wait till morning to address the issue. (Just a thought, most hotels are now advertising that they change the duvet between each guest so things like this won't happen.) So, in the morning, we discreetly mentioned the bloody duvet to the person at the front desk. She apologized and had the housekeeper come pick it up. We asked about the air problem and were told that maintenance would come check on it. We soon received a call stating that a fuse/breaker was out and another apology was issued for our inconvenience. Then the air started working properly. Outside of the duvet issue and the air issue, the hotel and the room was really nice and the hotel was in a good spot. When checking in, they give you a paper stating that they provide 100% suite assurance - which means if you're not satisfied with your room, they will give you the night free. We sent a note to management about our issues with the room but have yet to hear back. I wouldn't rule out staying at this hotel again, especially if we ever hear back from management. I just would take the time to double check the bedding and air before unpacking. Breakfast was adequate (waffles, sausage, eggs, etc.) Overall, mixed feelings.

Room Tip: Make sure to double check the linens and that the air conditioner in your room is working before unp...

First of all, thank you for your candid feedback of your stay with us. I apologize that we did not meet expectations and I am actively working with our housekeeping & maintenance teams to ensure cleanliness and comfort are our first priority. I understand the condition of duvet cover and air conditioning was of concern, I am always looking for reviews to provide insight into our guest experience and I will keep your review in mind as we look towards refresh options. Thank you again for your feedback and I invite you back to stay with us the next time your travels bring you to Clearwater.

Warm Regards,

We drove over from Orlando in the middle of a torrential downpour. We were early, but no problem, they happily accommodated us and gave us a room. We had a room near an exit, which turned out to be very nice, we could park the car and walk into our room, very convenient. They had all you can eat breakfast every day and dinner Mon-Thu. While the food was nothing fancy, it was hearty and it was nice to have it there in the morning and when we got back from our outings. I thought that eating that way is an easy way to put on a few pounds on your vacation, be careful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We used the laundry facility on the hotel, and everything was quite easy, with the front desk having a selection of laundry detergent etc. The pool is small and there is no hot tub, but this being Clearwater in June, we did not miss a hot tub. The hotel is conveniently located, close to freeways etc. There is a Publix grocery store right opposite, and lots of restaurants plus fast food places close by. Never got to try the Panera Bread which is right outside. Amenities in the room were what we expected, not luxury but clean and abundant. The free ethernet internet access was a definite plus, but BEWARE, no WiFi. I ended up running my own private WiFi network for our disparate iDevices (Pad, Pod and Phone). Also, no ice-machine in the hotel, but the refrigerator has an ice-maker, which actually turned out to be quite convenient during the trip, just like at home.

Room Tip: we liked our room far from the main entrance but near a side entrance and on the first floor.

We had a large group of teenage boys playing in a World Series, along with many parents. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Breakfasts and dinners were great with many choices. The pool and grill areas were extremely nice. The staff were all super nice and very accomodating, even to our kids. Even when they had to "complain" about a few rambuctious moments, they were very nice about it! Ann and Sheila were awesome and the lady (can't remember her name) that always helped out with breakfasts were phenominal people! If they'll have us :) we'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms toward the outside rather than the courtyard may be quieter, because the pool is in the courty...

The staff at this hotel were very nice, warm and accommodating. The rooms were okay, the pool was nice and the meals were very...'American'.
Location to the beach was decent (about a 15 minute car ride). Convenient location to grocery, pharmacy and a bakery.
Excellent value considering you have a kitchen.

We stayed at the Homewood Suites for three nights in May, 2011. Our suite was very roomy for my wife and it. It was clean and well organized. The breakfast provided had many choices, hot and cold. The staff was friendly and helpful. If ever in the Tampa area, again, it would be one of our first choices for getting a good night's rest.
