The hotel is directly across from the fairgrounds and just next door to a popular burger and fries restaurant. We actually came to town for the Hard Rock, and this hotel was just on the other side of the fairgrounds from that. Location was great for what we were looking for. We got price-gouged due to the state fair being...

This hotel is a safety hazard (fire in elevator room and no fire alarm or sprinkler system ever went off)hidden by a nice paint job and nice people. If you do not have to, do not stay here. I am not so sure it is the safest place to work either. I feel bad for their employees.

If I had paid under $100/night for this hotel, I would have rated it average. But at $166/night, it was definitely not worth it. The first room we were in had a leak from the toilet in the room above dripping onto our toilet. The staff was very accommodating, apologized profusely and moved us to a different room. The next...

When we opened the door to our room, we were hit with a horrible stench of cigarettes. We are non-smokers and had been assigned a room on a smoking floor. Honestly, I didn't know smoking rooms still existed. The hotel did not have any non-smoking rooms available. We only stayed two of our four nights in the room because of...

Dirty, poorly maintained property in need of a renovation. A somewhat uncaring staff, and little concern for service. The AC System in the first room I was given did not work, even AC or Heat. When calling the front desk on the phone, they never picked up after 3 attempts. I physically had to go down to request another room....

I stay here nearly every month for a few days. It has been, and continues to be a first class place. The rooms are spotless, and the people who work here are always smiling. There is a Five Guys burger place right next door. You won't find many places that have a better burger. The Tampa Fairgrounds are across the...

Very poor-- I was open to a good deal, but this hotel is terrible. I really believe that this hotel is partially a homeless shelter. We found a bug crawling on the table 15 minutes after we checked in. While Ashley---the front door manager was very nice, and offered to move us to another room, I was turned off. We...

The room and the hotel itself seemed very old and dirty, smelled nasty, and the shower was absolutely disgusting. Food was horrible, glad we only had to stay one night. About 10 people were standing outside the front entrance and smoking, we about passed out, just to get to the front desk.

I stay here for at least 4 days every month. It is always clean and the staff is always on top of things. If you have any problems they are fixed immediately. There is a casino nearby along with many restaurants and shopping places. The wifi is very strong, no trouble streaming at all.
