Welcome to the Country Inn and Suites, Tampa Airport North. See how the area's rich diversity of culture, nature and attractions nearly makes it a miniature, self-contained country where you can find almost anything. The hotel is located only blocks away from the Veterans expressway in the business district. Golf enthusiasts can visit the Emerald Green Golf Resort only 10 minutes away. If you're here on business you can find Wellcare, Diebold, CAE and many more great companies only minutes away. The newly opened Wawa Convenience Store across the street is a great way to get all your late night needs. Tampa Convention Center is only ten miles from the hotel. Find family fun or exciting nightlife in the Channelside Entertainment district. Take the kids to the Florida Aquarium, a glass-domed marine wonderland or visit the world-famous Busch Gardens/Adventure Island Theme Parks. Our Tampa hotel also puts you within reach of Wilderness Park. Taste the local Cuban culture in Ybor City.

You may have to eat in your room! The breakfast space is VERY small and fills up quick. (Food restocking is slow at times, too.)

I'll go back

The staff was very accommodating and pleasant . The bed was was very comfortable. I liked the soaps and shampoo etc. and we had plenty of towels. The only down side was the room could have been cleaner, specifically the bathroom floor. We would go back. But if the bathroom floor wasn't clean I would ask for another room. Very economical!

Dirty Rooms

When first checking in, the hotel seemed very nice and modern, however we found out quickly that the rooms were not clean. We found multiple hairs in the sheets and pillows and the floor had not been vacuumed. We went to the front desk and asked to switch rooms, but unfortunately found that our second room was just as dirty. We called down and had the staff come up and clean our room while we waited because I was not comfortable staying in the room the way it was. The price was very reasonable, but I would not recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Really great!

We were very pleased with our stay here. It's relatively new and the room was very nice. The breakfast was great, and included eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. The location made it easy to get to the St. Pete airport, which was the reason for our stay. We will stay here again next time.
