Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ANNETTE1213 STAFF AND SERVICE
THE STAFF DURING THIS STAY WERE NOT OUTGOING AND ACTED AS IF THEY WERE BEING BOTHERED RATHER THAN OFFERING A SERVICE. THE CASINO SHUTTLE WAS NOT ON SCHEDULE GOING EITHER WAY SUGGESTING A SLACK ADHERENCE TO SCHEDULING. FRONT DESK STAFF WAS NOT PROFESSIONAL WHEN CONTACTED REGARDING NOISE IN NEXT ROOM.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vero Diesel Overall Good Hotel
Overall this is a good hotel. Staff is great. Rooms are getting that worn look and they have installed "Glades Plug in" air fresheners in all of the roooms I have stayed in lately. These air fresheners annoy my sinus's. The AC units are old and noisy and need thermostats with degrees installed on them. The AC unit was either too cold or too hot.

I stayed at this hotel for one night. It was conveniently close to the highway and a gas station close by. The hotel and room were very clean. I left early but was able to get coffee and something to eat from the lobby before I left. Even though I did not stay long enough, I am sure to return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lovekern Acceptable. Needs work on Customer Service.
This facility is great if you have an event at the Fairground. It is relatively clean. Safe. I would stay here again.
Mostly my issue is with the staff. I asked for late check out the night before (10pm). I was told that I would have to request it in the morning. Not really sure why it wasn't possible to accomplish this the night before. But then when I called in the morning 8:30, I was told I was unable to receive late check out because all the late check out slots were filled. Why could have I not received it the night before? It was very frustrating. The manager on duty was not very accomodating. Poor customer service attitude.
The breakfast was interesting...good since it was included in the price. Would just offer a few more healthy items.
Overall, it was a decent stay. And perfect because we had an event at the Fairgrounds.

Placed in a smoking room. I don't smoke asked for another room . Could not accommodate. Bed had U Shape. Carpet old and worn out. And did I mention the room smelled like a cigarette ashtray

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Okay2stay Okay to stay
This hotel is certainly better to stay at, for the price, than what they charge at the Hard Rock. It appeared nice from the outside and the staff was friendly. I was greeted and told that someone had "upgraded" our room and that it would have been nice if I could stay longer. Of course, I expected a lot after that comment. When we got to our room it was very outdated but it was Clean. The upgrade, I think, was that it had a small area with a sofa and tv, separate from the bedroom area. It was close to the casino, which worked well for us. The bed and pillows were nothing to write home about but they were comfortable enough to sleep. The breakfast was hot and the dining area was clean. Bottom line...a clean and friendly place to sleep :)

Staff was great. It was disappointing to be in a smoking room especially after being confirmed in a non-smoking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ReginaC Hard Beds and pull out too small
Expected two double beds - was given one double Bed and it was very hard. Then the pull out "couch" was only big enough for a small child. Curtains didn't shut all the way.
Breakfast starts at 7am so was not able to try it as I had to leave by 6am.
Ok room with large tv and plenty of space.
Also asked to be on ground floor. That didn't happen either. At least I got the non-smoking room as requested.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business Woman "Ok" hotel if you want to be away from everything
Overall it was just an ok hotel, definitely nothing to write home about. The satff was not very personable with the excpetion of Monet (She actually had a personality and seemed to care about the guests) The breakfast was the typical hotel breakfast with the only perk being the cinnamon buns, they tasted pretty good when hot. The major downfall of this hotel is that its not close to anything and is kind of off the beaten path.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by chris2014 disappointing
slightly unpleasant greeting and service upon arrival and check in. No frills room - poorly cleaned and maintained bathroom in rooms (business partners room - same experience). Rundown and outdated exercise closet. Instant coffee would have towered the hot water with color posing as coffee. Stay in a hotel over 300 business days over the last two years - this ranks near the very bottom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ttsi Just OK
Decent property but below average for HIE's. In need of a good overhaul. Just dated and older feeling. Staff was good, pillows need upgraded, bathroom not as clean as I like, road noise in the rooms is obvious. Milk in the morning was in larger containers not individual boxes and eggs were very packaged.

Excellent location with easy access. Very comfortable room. Out of the last six IHG Hotels I have stayed at (including several brands), the staff at this hotel provided the most recognition for my Platinum status. Well done!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Check in
We had a rocky start to our stay. We checked in around midnight and it took quite a few minutes for the desk person to find our reservatiion and assign a room. Then she handed me the wrong registration slip to sign. She wasn't all that welcoming until I took the trouble to chat her up, then she relaxed and smiled a bit. We ended up getting a nice suite which I am sure was because of my priority club status but no one ever mentioned that or provided any additional perks for that status.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marge8 Clean and comfortable
This property is well kept, clean and comfortable. We enjoy being able to travel with our dog and only stay at pet friendly properties. The only thing that affected out stay in a negative way was the people that were inconsiderate - many allowing their doors to slam shut when they were coming and going from the rooms. This hotel is overall quiet and super convenient to Busch Gardens or other Tampa attractions, but a much better value than the hotels that are right next door to Busch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DAB3 Good, could have been Great.
We were put in smoking rooms. We do not smoke. The room smelled bad of smoke and had no say about the matter because the hotel was full. We should have been told of this when we made are reservation. Some of the lights did not work, not a big problem. The Big problem was the smell of smoke. Good stay. Should have been a Great stay. Never had to ask if I was getting a smoking room. Bad form Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JudyAnne2 Great staff and good service
The staff was very accommodating..we were on a motorcycle which they allowed us to park under the awning. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot with great water pressure. Breakfast was good and the coffee was hot. What more could you ask for? My only suggestion is to offer water/snacks to each person staying, not only to the IHG rewards member! One bottle of water for two people does not add up!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary317 Nice Stay...however...
We had a nice stay at this hotel, however, even though the room was a "pet" room, there were quite a few big stains on the carpet...not the greatest thing to see! Otherwise, very nice and clean.
