Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Tampa Fairgrounds was fantastic. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent, helpful and friendly. The location is excellent especially if you want to visit casino. Easy drive to and from. We will stay there again.

We visit Tampa often around the holidays and the holiday inn express near the fairgrounds is very clean and accessible. Not necessarily near all the hot spots and not a lot of restaurants close by- we are at the fairgrounds so it's convenient for that....More

Next door to the wing house and across the street from the fair grounds . It used to offer a shuttle to the casino but stopped it. The rooms need updating because the carpet is worn and smells musty..More

Under reconstruction. THE best place to stay if attending an event at the Tampa Fairgrounds. Other than that, not much to see in the area. Seminole Hardrock Casino is close by. Some restaurants close by as well.More

We stayed here during a cheer competition. The location is very convenient. It's across the street from the Tampa Fairgrounds. The bed was comfortable. The night we were there we had a problem with someone talking loud until 2:30 in the morning.

No, unfortunately there was not when we were there. The website said there was but hotel said they stopped in April. Not sure why. It's not far to casino so you might check out uber or a taxi.
