“Diverse complex, good rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

First time here, got a nice upgrade to a12th floor suite , decided to stay an extra night. Food in the cafe good and beach club food better than average and reasonably priced. Some people complain about the smell of smoke, but it didn't bother me. Good choice of restaurants on the complex.

Room Tip: 1254 great

We are two couples who stayed here for the last three days of a fourteen night holiday in Florida. We had had a fantastic holiday in Orlando and fort myers beach prior to arriving here. Initially we were horrified by the smell of smoke, the smell of air fresher trying to hide the smell of the smoke, and the noise from the casino which you had to go through or pass by to go anywhere. Once we settled in our rooms we calmed a bit. The rooms were beautiful and the beds and pillow soooo comfy. No complaints here. We all had a great sleep apart from the Saturday night which was like the scene of a Wild West show with the racket going on in the corridors all night. The pool was outstanding and we tried to spend as much time here as possible. The staff at the pool bar were great. The shops and bars out the back were great. We especially liked murphys Irish pub because the staff were lovely although not Irish! A great place to escape the noise is at the newly opened piano bar. We had a lovely evening there requesting songs and drinking the strong cocktails! This hotel is more of a resort than a hotel and I would have given it 5 had there not been the awful smells and ironically the casino!! On a last note we had booked and paid for this hotel months prior to arriving but to our horror they insisted we hadn't paid and were not going to let us leave without paying. Luckily for us, although it was a Sunday, we managed to contact the agent we had booked through and they sorted it with reception. Not the best end to a holiday.

We love going to Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, the facilities are superb and the staff are simply amazing. We live in the Caribbean and we use to go to Vegas which is a long trip, so we are thrilled that we can go to a Vegas-style casino in Florida. We are always warmly greeted by the staff, and the vibe is positive from the moment we hit the valet parking area because everyone is upbeat and the music is always rocking. The casino and hotel (including restaurants, bars and pool area) have everything you need for a great vacation and they are clean, well-maintained, safe and secure. The Spa has great selection of services and the staff are simply wonderful. The entertainment area adjacent to the casino, has several great restaurants and shops, live music on weekends, and a venue for concerts, which we have attended several times. We are hooked on the Seminole Hard Rock.

My husband and 6 year old son visit this hotel 2-3 times a year. We live on the other coast of Florida and like to do quick overnight trips. To start off, we don't gamble nor do we smoke. If we did, this would be a 5 star all the way. We come to the hard rock for the ridiculous pool, the modern rooms, and the outside shopping/eating areas. To start off, the rooms are spacious and updated with nice bathrooms. They are pretty clean. I love that they have the radio on when you walk in, very rock and roll. They absolutely smell like smoke though, even the non smoking rooms. Like gross old bar smoke that remains on your suitcase for a week after you get home. The staff is somewhat friendly, no one ever left a lasting impression. The pool is amazing. It is less than 4 feet and surrounds a mountain with a waterfall and in the center of it is a waterslide, my son loves it!! If you don't stay in the hotel as a guest, I was told by the front desk, you can rent a cabana for a period of time to use the pool areas (not on weekends). So that may be something to look into, but I'm sure it's not cheap... Nothing there is. The outside shopping area is cool; lots of little neat shops to poke through. Several restaurants, we ate in one towards the back overlooking the water ($100 bucks for 3 of us, with one alcoholic beverage purchased). The food was good and the lake had a fountain that was synchronized to music which was really impressive. My favorite stop in the shopping area is an adult slushy bar that has like 30 frozen alcoholic drinks mmmm-- so yummy! The outside shopping area is also fun to people watch it's everything from families to grey hairs to the meat market types. Been here more than 6x will come back, but when we do it will be with a big bottle of Febreeze and an air purifier!

Arriving on the last day of our road trip, the only slight issue was finding the car park, the rest of the stay was absolutely wonderful. Suite was fantastic, clean, spacious, and superbly fitted out, staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. Pool bar was a nice little way to unwind from a drive. Really could not have been bettered.

Slightly disappointed with some of the places to eat in the center rather than the hotel itself, which did not disappoint.

The casino is very smoky no matter what area you walk in.The rooms look nice ,however they are not clean ,nor do they have clean bathrooms.Be sure to wipe your toilet and shower area before using.Enter with caution.Maybe the housekeepers have so many rooms to clean, that they rush or just simply don't clean them at all. All I wanted was a clean room.

Between the casino, concerts, stores, restaurants, there isn't much of a reason to go off property. I love the pool.... Listening to the music underwater was great. The memorabilia throughout the property is impressive. The casino is pretty good size. There are lots of food choices. The rooms were in great shape. I have been here a few times and will be back.
