“Great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

Stayed here for two nights and it was a super little find.
The service was excellent the check in was efficient and the receptionist sorted out our problem quickly as our third party booking agent had not sent the confirmation through to the hotel.
Rooms were quiet,clean and modern.The breakfast was adequate they try there best with what they have .Good staff very informative if you visiting Busch Gardens buy tickets from the hotel and you get a free shuttle to Busch gardens.
The hotel has a small pool and gym ,free wifi overall very good stay.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise! The rooms were clean, modern, and stylish. The beds were also comfortable. My only complaint is that the breakfast was not very good, although there were many food options available. There's also a decent workout room and outdoor pool. The location is a bit isolated, but it's not far from the interstate.

Dear Shamlett,

We would like to extend our gratitude for taking the time to complete our survey. We apologize for failing to meet your expectations with our breakfast options; we are always looking for areas of improvement. While our location may seem a bit off the beaten path, there are options for restaurants in walking distance and there is a mall 5 miles east of the hotel with a food court and dining. We hope to see you the next time you are in the Tampa Bay area.

Best Wishes,

This place was the best location! Hands down! We walked to and from the venue, with no problems whatsoever. Our room is equipped with fridge, microwave, and is decorated at a higher level than other comfort inn and suites that I've been in. The room almost feels like a suite. Beds, couch, and accessories are up to date. Although I couldn't stay at the hard rock tonight (booked out from concert) this is definitely a place I will revisit be it for a concert or the casino! Well put together and the front desk staff are very friendly! I big plus when it comes to crowds and local events & places! We will be back, we are from the Orlando area, so the next time will be sooner than later!

Very pleased with this hotel. Staff was very friendly and courteous. The rooms were very large than most, decor was very eye catching. The beds very comfortable. Great place to stay if you are going to a concert at the fairgrounds, walking distance. We will stay there again!

This hotel is wonderful. The entire staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. The rooms are great and the bed super comfortable. The whole facility was extremely clean from the rooms, to the lobby to the grounds themselves. The breakfast bar was very good with a wide variety to choose from that should satisfy anybody. This was a family mini-vacation and when we made the reservations, we requested rooms as close as possible. We were so happy to find that our son and his family were right across the hall!! Although the hotel is outside of downtown Tampa, we had no trouble getting to the attractions, and returning in the afternoon to the peace and quiet of the hotel was wonderful. Although we did not visit the casino, for those who are interested, the hotel provides a shuttle service hourly. We have already discussed a return visit to the area, and we could not imagine staying any place else. Thank you to the staff and management of Comfort Suites at Fairground-Casino!

Our family of four stayed for 2 nights recently when we came down for Tampa Comic-Con. The front desk it friendly, the hotel is clean, and it's close to the interstate. A few previous reviewers stated that the shuttle was great but when we stayed (1 week ago) the only place it would shuttle you to was the casino. Not a big deal for us since we had our own car but it could be a problem for others due to it's remote location. Our room was clean but the a/c had to be turned down pretty low to get it cool in the room. It was loud and went on and off non stop throughout the night resulting in less than stellar sleep. The only other issues we had were with the sofa bed (mattress springs could be felt making it uncomfortable for one of our teens) and the blow dryer in the bathroom didn't work. A quick call to the front desk and they sent maintenance up to fix it (he was nice and replaced it within 20 min). There was plenty of parking, a small pool and workout room that has some equipment including a treadmill and elliptical machine. Breakfast was okay - 2 waffle makers, eggs (that we think were made from powder), bacon on one day and sausage the next, coffee, juice, yogurt, cereal, and some pastries. If we are ever back in the area for a concert (hotel is right across from the amphitheater) it would be a great location for one nights stay. It's a quick 10-15 min drive to downtown depending on traffic.

Room Tip: Sofa bed mattresses are not in good condition. If you are staying for the added bed I'd skip it.
