I love this hotel! Not only was the service great, but the rooms were awesome and location is the the best! I have been driving from Orlando for concerts in Tampa for many years, and I most recently discovered this hotel. The best part of this location is that they offer FREE shuttle service to and from the fairgrounds/amphitheatre! This was a great feature because it not only saves money on Parking but we don't need to worry about having a few too many drinks! They also offer the same free service to the Semniole Hard Rock and will pick you up as late as 3:00am! I can't say enough about this hotel... stay their next time you are in town and you will not be disappointed!

Hotel was nice, comfortable, spacious and affordable..I went for the casino(Hard Rock Casino) and they had a shuttle bus that will leave every half hour on the hour...The management were very friendly, the breakfast was great, Rooms were clean and I will be back real soon....Had a wonderful stay and a wonderful time....

Room Tip: I always choose the higher floor less a/c unit noise......

This was our second stay at this Fairfield Inn. The rooms are extremely clean and the staff and management are extra friendly and accomodating. They have a shuttle service (that definitely improved on this current stay) that leaves every half hour and hour. It is an excellent way to go to the Hard Rock Casino, Ybor City or anywhere, even shopping, within a 5 mile area of the hotel. We never were bothered by the traffic noise except that is can be a little annoying when sitting out by the pool in the early rush-hour time. I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will be back every time we head to the casino.

First of All - the Hard Rock casino in Tampa is crap, rubbish, useless, no good and any other adjective you can think of. It's just nasty. I'm so glad i didn't spend $300+ to spend a night there. Maybe Foxwoods/MGM Grand in CT have ruined me for all other non-Vegas casinos but this was just yucky.

Anyway, onto the hotel.

I don't normally stay at the Fairfield chain but on this occasion i was lured by the promise of free shuttle to/from the casino and breakfast. what can i say, i'm easy.........

I have to say, based on this stay i would definitely consider a Fairfield again. The staff on check in weren't very enthusiastic but they weren't miserable which i'm going to consider a bonus. The lobby area was decent. The rooms were a good size and i have to say the bed and pillows were among the most comfortable i've slept on in a hotel recently.

the fitness room was a letdown. they had 2 treadmills and two elipticals along with some weights. there were no wipes to clean equipment before or after use. they did supply towels and there was a water thing. one of the treadmills made a horrible grating noise. the biggest letdown was the video/audio equipment on the tv's on the individual pieces of equipment. they were tuned only to ESPN, you couldn't change channel. Not everyone wants to watch stupid sport when working out, sometimes we need Fashion Police or Law & Order or some such rubbish. There was a main TV but the view was limited depending on which piece of equipment you were using.

The shuttle to/from the casino was great. the driver was very nice.

the breakfast in the morning covered the food basics - yogurt, fruit, waffles, eggs, cereal, muffins, jimmy dean breakfast sandwiches :-)

all in all, great value for money (using AAA rates) and definitely one i'd reconsider staying at again if i was having a brain freeze and stupidly decided to return to the hard rock tampa

Stayed here because of location to HardRock and Ybor. Great hotel, clean rooms and very friendly staff. Free continental breakfast. We stayed on the side facing I-4 and had no problems with traffic noise. We used the shuttle to go to Ybor one night and was fine till we needed to be picked up, it took 1 hour 15 mins. Drove to casino on our own the next day because they couldn't always pick up everyone and run every half hour. Day time is best for shuttle service not nighttime.
