Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luke Bryan Concert Great Hotel right across from the Florida Arena! I recommend booking a room before the concert tickets go on sale. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Concert stay Staff was great. Good location for concerts at the amphitheater. Easy walk to Wing House for dinner and then to concert. Also convenient to Hard Rock. Nice place for the price. September 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, clean comfortable place to relax Convenience to Farigrounds, Casino, Interstate and was a beautiful room with lots of room. Highly recommend it and the value was excellent too! September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Room and Great Service Our stay was very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and look forward to coming back real soon. September 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Carpet cleaner smell overpowering The room itself was not very comfortable due to the overpowering detergent smell in the room. It was so bad we asked to change rooms only to find out the second room was just as bad. The room itself was clean, it just stank. The typical bad breakfast and difficulty getting into and out of at times will make me look elsewhere. The staff here was very professional and courteous. Pretty good fitness room September 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious and Quiet rooms The rooms are very Spacious and very well insulated for sound. I am a very light sleeper and our room was across from the elevator and I never heard a bit of noise. September 14, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by good location for fair grounds event would not stay here for any reason except when attending an event at the fairgrounds. Small pool area - I do like the winghouse next door. Also close to the casino - thanks! September 3, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid if you can Basic motel feeling - entire 4th floor is filled with unbearable smoking leftover smell. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location was perfect for taking my daughter to U Tampa . We could walk everywhere and I could get to her to help her get things she needed to be far away from home. August 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overbilled and waiting On 08/17/14, I was forced to wait two hours to check into my room as It was bring cleaned. After checkout I learned that my bill was 56.00 dollars higher then when booked through the hotel. The front desk said to fax over my original booking confirmation it's been seven days still no reply. The hotel over wise is nice, newer and clean plus very close to Fairgrounds. August 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overnight stay Have stayed at hotels in this area, and this hotel, by far, was the best value for our money. Great staff, friendly and helpful. General manager was on duty and really seemed to care about our stay. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by concert Very convenient! Close to everything. Spacious rooms, and the ladies at the front desk were Awesome! August 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by smoked in room Unfortunately, someone had smoked in the room we were staying in. The smell was in all my belongings long after we left. I know the hotel cannot control that - but I do hope they charged the person that had smoked in the room. They are newly remodeled and it's a shame people cannot comply with the no smoking rules. For the price I may stay elsewhere next trip to Tampa. Also the night desk person was talking on the phone to a friend and not waiting on all the guests standing in front of her. However the day time desk person was amazingly friendly and helpful which made up for the night time customer service that was subpar. August 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tampa Had a comfortable stay at this hotel. The shuttle service to the casino is a big plus. Will return in the future August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brad Paisley Concert-Great Place to Stay Just perfect for a concert at the Amphitheater. Walk to show and a great room and breakfast the next morning. Little shack bar in lobby just right for after the show munchies. Always great! Just try to book reservation for room before hotel finds out show is coming. Room rates go up about 50% once show is announced. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for events across the street This hotel is within walking distance to the fairgrounds and amphitheater. That was the main reason we chose to stay. The entire staff was awesome. They were entertaining and made sure we were having the best stay possible. If I was going to another event held at the fairgrounds, I would definitely stay here. Plus Ybor city is about ten minutes away and there are some pretty good nightlife choices down there. August 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Convenient to Fairgrounds/Casino with transportation. Needs better selection of pillow choices though. August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place Stopped in after a long drive to get some much needed sleep. Beds were comfortable. Room and bathroom were clean. Room temperature was comfortable. Staff were very courteous and friendly. The room was dark and quiet enough to enable us to get sleep and to clean up. Thank you for a nice stay. August 6, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff and enjoyable stay The staff was very helpful throughout our stay from check in all the way through check out. Employees are quick to respond and meet your needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Business Meeting Great experience. Everything from booking the room and having the training seminar to checking out. July 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Caught by surprise !!! The room I checked in to had hair on the bed of a customer that stayed in the same room earlier. Could not change room as my roommate crashed to bed after a long night. I went to the front desk. The lady was very helpful and willing to help. She let the room service know. The room service lady was courteous. Gave me new bedsheets and blanket and offered to change. I opted to do the same my self. I saw hair again on the bedsheet given to me but was too exhausted. put the blanket on bedsheet and crashed. Staff is very courteous and helpful. The atmosphere of the property is good. If only a better job can be done with the bed. Also while I was sleeping I heard someone trying to open the room. When I opened the door other guests were there. By mistake my room was assigned to them. Wish I could get comfortable sleep. July 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great location! Great stay if your going to a concert! It's right across the street. July 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wouldn't recommend It should not take ten minutes to get hot water for a shower and the room should be cleaned by 5:00 in the evening July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent choice! This hotel was an excellent choice for a visit to the casino, or the surrounding area (amphitheatre, etc.). The staff was very friendly, the accommodations were fantastic, and the shuttle service to the hotel was great. We would suggest it be on the 1/2 hour, rather than the hour, to provide a little more flexibility, but that is only a personal preference. The front desk staff, and the shuttle driver were very nice. A good choice! July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay while attending great concerts in Tampa Holiday Inn Express is a great place to rest after a great concert at the beautiful Tampa Amphitheater. I always enjoy my stay. Comfortable beds and fresh coffee in the morning. What else is there to need after a great concert. I love HIE and will continue to stay at this hotel every time. Comfortable and affordable. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service The room was clean, staff very helpful, once we got in from our flight we were very hungry. The night clerk directed us to the waffle house and it was great!!!!! The price was what we needed in this economy. With those prices I'm able fly and stay more often and stay longer. July 18, 2014
