“Great Family Vacation Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Recently stayed here with the family for Spring Break. We stayed for 4 nights and it was perfect. The location is located in a suburan area so it was close to many restuarants and retails stores, without being too close. The breakfast was really good and fresh with lots of variety. The evening dinner was really great. This helps the budget with 3 kids. Also, the pool and hot tube was clean; it does say heated pool although we could not tell. The basketball court was great. This gave some much needed energy relief along with the workout room.
The room was perfect. We stayed in 211 and it was at the end near the washer and dryer which was good for us. We had a one bedroom suite which was very spacious.
The staff is fantastic and was always very attentive and willingly to help. The young guy who worked the kitchen was fantastic and helpful.
It is about 15 minutes from Brush Gardens and 1 hour to Clearwater Beach.
Many people mention the Embassy next door being nicer. I would say its bigger and it's ok, but the value is at the Homewood Suites. The hotel was near capacity however it never felt like it. Kudos to the staff for making it feel like home. Especially, the manager on the night shift and the young lady also on the night shift. Great customer service.

Room Tip: Try to stay around from rooms near the basketball court for obvious reasons.

We stayed here one night while waiting to get into our scheduled hotel. Room was very nice and clean, staff was friendly. Late check in was quick and efficient. Rate was reasonable. I would definately stay there again.

Been staying here for four years as part of a Spring Training vacation every March. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and well located for easy drives into Tampa/St Pete, Sarasota/Bradenton, and Lakeland, which covers six spring training sites - another 4 are an additional hour or so away.

Hotel provides a decent breakfast, and a weekday evening 'reception' with light food and beer/wine. Service has been consistently good.

Room Tip: Two-room suites are great for families/friends traveling - they even have a three-room, two bedroom...

The room was nice. Clean and lot's of space. We had a couple of issues during our stay though. Our room was right next to the outside basketball court and we were a little annoyed that there were children playing basketball late into the night. It felt like we were on the court with them. My wife was blocking shots in her sleep. The biggest problem I had was the Radio Alarm clock in the room. We finally got to sleep a little after midnight and this horrible alarm goes off at 5:40am! Confused and annoyed, I try to figure out how to turn it off in the dark. I finally press a button right and I decide to take further precaution and unplug it from the wall. 5 min later I have fallen to sleep again and it magically goes off again. Thanks back up batteries. At this point, I'm so angry, I get out of bed and walk to the door. I rolled the clock down the hallway and went back to bed. HOTELS NEED TO MAKE SURE THE ALARMS ARE NOT SET! Also.....My wife and I went to use the hot tub and it appeared that they were having a hillbilly convention in it.

We really enjoyed our stay here. All the staff were very friendly! The food wasn't great but I did love having free breakfast and a light dinner. My husband was impressed that they had free beer and wine. If you eat early, check back later for the desserts. I only have a couple of complaints, I didn't like the way they have the TV channels set up (I saw where someone complained about this in another review and thought, really?) but they have something called Lodgenet and it is very annoying to try to work it. You can't just turn on the T.V. and flip through the channels, and there aren't very many children's channels (which was important to us because we have small children) Also the movies and on demand they had were very expensive but we were able to check out a DVD player for free so that was nice. Also, we did't really like the weird times housekeeping came by. We stayed on the 7th floor and housekeeping knocked on our door at 8:30 am. We told them that we would be leaving in a few minutes so they could just come back but they didn't clean our room at all that day. The next day we left early and didn't get back to our room until 4:30 and had to call and ask for them to please clean our room, which they did very shortly after, they said housekeeping had been busy and didn't get to it.
The lobby,pool and rooms were all nicely decorated and clean. The "fitness room" was very small but nice. Overall we had a good experience and would stay there again.

The hotel has larger rooms and two room suites. Bathrooms with plenty of space and kitchens with full refrigerators and the ability to cook meals. Weekday evening food & drinks, as well as hot breakfasts everyday, which was super crowded Easter Week (to be expected in Central Florida!) It was a great location for getting to a variety of Spring Training fields - west to Tampa/Clearwater, south to Sarasota and Northeast to Lakeland, all less than an hour away, and hotel is close to I-75 entrance/exit. Staff helped get me into a non-smoking room after a mistake on my part - when the hotel was fully booked.
