“Nice - however.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Made on-line reservation and asked for quiet room away from machines, elevators, stairs. Our first room was directly across from vending machine. Changed rooms, and card access would not work. Finally got settled in. Beautiful, large room. One drawer in bureau kept coming out, had to be careful in dark. Bathroom sink much too far from edge, hurts back and legs to bend over to reach it. Very nice and helpful staff. Shuttle driver very nice and on time. Left room at 12:45pm for casino, it was not cleaned. It is a nice property with good location close to casino. I would stay again, but would try Holiday Inn Express for comparison, first.

The Comfort Suites at Tampa Fairgrounds-Casino is a treat for the guests visiting the Hard Rock Casino or Bush Gardens. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are very nice. This hotel is well nicely designed for the guests with mobility issues and the whole facility is very clean. Wilbur, the front desk manager was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast room was nice and the food was quite tasty. Having stayed at this Comfort Suites a half dozen times, I can highly recommend it to any traveler in the Tampa area.

Room Tip: No rooms seem to be too far away from the elevators and the rooms are quiet. No elevator noise can b...

We were on our way south and decided to stay in Tampa. We chose the Comfort Suites for price and positive reviews in Trip Advisor.
We were not disappointed. The room was big with a couch,coffe table, and desk with adequate plug ins for the electronics and chargers. The beds were very good and the bathroom was large enough for even my wife's paraphenalia. There was a nice TV and closet for clothes. There was a small refrigerator and a microwave in the room. The lobby had an area that sold food items that could taken to the room and heated in the microwave if needed. The hotel also had a laundry area if you needed to wash some clothes.The rooms were clean.
The location was excellent as well. It was very close to the Hard Rock Casino, which we visited and easy to get to.
The Staff was attentive and friendly. We were very happy with our stay and will look at other Comfort Suites in the future.

Stayed here with the intention of using it as a base for nearby Tampa attraction it is good base for the hard rock casino . The receptionist was extremely pleasant and very informative and helpful. The rooms are a very good size with all the amenities you need. The bed was large and very comfortable there was seating area including a settee a fridge and microwave. Free wifi, free parking and a buffet breakfast with a wide selection to suit most requirements. The casino was 5 mins away in a cab or you can use the free shuttle available on the hour. All in all a very good hotel I would recommend it as a good base for visiting attractions in the area . Excellent staff and very clean and tidy.

What a relief to come to a hotel that is FRIENDLY and COURTEOUS to its guests.
From the moment I was greeted by Jahaira with a smile and a WELCOME... I knew I was headed for a relaxing, fun weekend. My purpose was an 80th Birthday Party at the Casino! Coming back from the smoke filled casino to a smoke-free and clean hotel was a true pleasure. The rooms, the lobby are decorated beautifully with comfortable tones and artistic furnishings. The heated pool was a nice start to my mornings along with a scrumptious breakfast with hot waffles, eggs, bacon and many cold choices as well. I must compliment the staff for a very accommodating stay for myself and other family members who stayed. Thanks!! See you soon again.

Room Tip: Face the pool on a higher floor at the end of the hall. Quiet with a view.

Green Features: No heavy industrial cleaning odors present. Green local plantings all around.

We wanted to stay at this property because during our stay in Tampa we planned to visit the Hard Rock Casino, and the hotel offered a free shuttle. The casino tends to be very busy on Sat. nights and we knew parking could be an issue. The lobby was large and nicely decorated. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We were surpised at how large our king room was. The entire hotel was well-maintained and the rooms clean and up-to-date. The breakfast was good and the only negative thing was the person in charge could not keep up with the demand on the Sunday morning we ate breakfast there. We will definitely stay at this hotel again when visiting the area.

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the highway. We heard no street noise.
