Recent guest reviews

Front desk staff was amazingly friendly. Breakfast included was nice. Comfortable room.

The hotel was under construction for a remodel but it did not interfere with our stay. The staff were friendly and nice. The breakfast was fantastic

MAIN reason for staying was hot tub didn't work ac Was very loud

The hotel stay was Great, the room was kept clean. Breakfast was good and the gentleman at the desk knew my name and greeted me everytime he saw me.

Everything was excellent from the staff, the room, and the pool. It was close to stores and restaurants. The breakfast was always delicious with lots of choices.

We were on the fourth floor. Maintainence was painting down the hall. The smell of paint made us sick. Which made us checkout earlier than planned. We attempted to sleep during the day because we had a long drive returning home. But since the curtains would not close. Sleeping was difficult. We were told an email would be sent for a receipt which was never received. When I checked by credit card online. The total was $30.00 more than the original quote.

Clean room, hot breakfast, no complaints. The hotel is near food.and shopping in Brandon. It was a quiet location.

I was in town do to family emergency and I found this hotel and glad I did it was convenient and clean thanks Courtyard I'll definitely be back

The staff was very nice and the hotel is very clean. The breakfast was good although they should try to change it up a bit more, most days the hot breakfast was the same. They have a laundry room on the 2nd floor in the hotel and the rooms come with a mini fridge and microwave. Plus there are many huge malls nearby and plenty of restaurants in the area. We had a comfy and pleasant stay.

So, during my stay my vehicle got broken into and the staff was so rude when approached about the situation. They only have two cameras (one for each entry way), no cameras in the parking lot at all and when I talked to police, they informed me that this is not the first time this hotel has had a break in so whoever the theives are they know this security is subpar at this hotel

No complaints everything was great and looking forward booking again.

The room was clean, even though it was non smoking, it smelled a little like smoke. Pool was a little dirty, but great breakfast and definitely a good value

Great value and room nothing bad about the room or staff

I was very happy with my room no issues and great price, location and would book again for future use

We arrived late at night and the staff seemed overhelmed. We didnt have any extra blankets in the room and when we called to get one they said there was one under tv but there wasnt so had to call back to finally get one. The smoke dectector also fell off the wall and wasnt connected. However, they did fix it the following day when cleaned the room. The continental breakfast was good and the work out room was good enough for quick morning work out.

We booked this room less than a week before our trip. Upon our arrival, Kevin told us our room would have to be upgraded since the room we requested was out-of-service. We wound up with a room with a whirlpool tub and a shower big enough to fit a family of 4 in at the same time. It was HUGE!! Room was clean, quiet and quite comfortable. Breakfast was great, including the waffles you make yourself, and provided many choices. Location was very close to I-75 and convenient to some great shopping. Because we had a pretty busy schedule planned, we didn't get to use the pool or the whirlpool tub so can't say anything about it. It was nice knowing it was there if we had time to use it. This was our 2nd time staying at a Country Inn and Suites and will continue to do so as our stays have always been pleasant!!

The hotel was fantastic and in a great location. I really enjoyed the whirlpool. The only bad thing about the hotel was the a/c was loud each time it came on. I found a friends from my hometown and we met up at the grocery store. I also looked for a job. I went to a workshop to learn more about setting up a classroom and age appropriate materail to use in the classroom with 3 to 5 yrs.

This hotel was very clean and a very short drive to the area attractions. The complimentary breakfast offered a variety of breakfast foods. My kids loved the waffle machine.

Im hesitant to stay in any hotel, due to my frustration when i last did it.this is wonderful hotel to stay, friendly staff (when i say it i mean it) helpful, and accomodating.After check out i realised I forgot my book and im miles away from the hotel. I called, and thankfully they got my book.....Im surprised, as it happen to me before on different hotel but they never found what we left, knowing its only a few clothes only.....we enjoy the breakfast aside its free it has lot of choices of good varieties....I will stay here again if i have too

Took some extra time off from the business trip and enjoyed the restful comfort of this hotel. It was great!

So, during my stay my vehicle got broken into and the staff was so rude when approached about the situation. They only have two cameras (one for each entry way), no cameras in the parking lot at all and when I talked to police, they informed me that this is not the first time this hotel has had a break in so whoever the theives are they know this security is subpar at this hotel
