Great hotel for a short stay specifically if you have a vehicle. Excellent location if attending any events at the Fairgrounds or visiting the Seminole Casino. Location is easily accessible to an array of shops and restaurants again if you have a vehicle, otherwise it is a bit of a challenge. Some rooms have fridge and microwaves in them so...

We were attending an event at the Fairgrounds which is right across the street. We were able to walk across 301 right to the event. The room was clean and had no issues. Breakfast the following morning was decent as well. Some people say the place is old or needs updating but we had no issues with anything. We were...

Went to Busch Gardens and needed a plave to stay. The hotel was very clean and quiet even though the Strawberry Festival was going on across the street, we didn't hear a peep. Price is average, there are restaurants near by, a Five Guys right across the street.

This was a very good lodging experience with a great location for the fairgrounds and casino. The price was the best in the area and the services offered were fine without the costly frills. There is not shuttle to the casino but it is very easy to drive the short (about 5 minutes) to casino parking.

It was very load with kids running up and down hallway on second floor. Room doors are heavy and make loud noise when closing. Breakfast bar only had three choices of cereal - need to have adult selection of cereal. It was a great location across from Fair Grounds and one exit from Hard Rock Casino. Beds were comfortable ,...

Upon driving up to the front door they was homeless people sitting outside. Homeless and shoeless man sleeping in a chair next to the registration desk with the permission of the staff. The lobby had a terrible smell and the walls, floor and furniture were worn out and dirty. Upon entering our room, the first thing we did was to...

This hotel is overpriced for the age, condition and set-up of the rooms. It not only was dirty (there was trash and a dirty sock under the bed when we arrived), but they didn't come to clean our rooms or replenish our towels even after the second day. The rooms were small and the set up is awful too -...

All staff members were helpful and friendly. They go out of their way to make the stay as pleasant as possible. The outside of the hotel is well maintained. The rooms have old damaged furniture and filthy carpets. The price charged was definitely not worth the accommodations.

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...
