“Not too bad for an overnight stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2007

Stayed at this hotel after going to a concert across the street at Ford Amphitheater. It is literally right across the street and the traffic after the concert was a mess. It was nice to just walk across the street. The hotel is just average. They did have us booked in a room with one double bed and we had booked a room with two double beds, they blamed it on Orbitz. Not sure who's fault it was but they fixed it quickly. It is just average, the elevator is a bit scary (very small and OLD), the rooms were just average, clean at first glance but you could tell the room had not been vacuumed well after the last guests. The bathroom is small and we did not have enough towels. The beds were actually very comfortable though. All in all it was worth the money we spent ($88) and I would stay again if attending anything at the Fairgrounds.

  • Liked — Beds were comfortable
  • Disliked — Not so clean

The hotel is in terrible shape - all the rooms are old and not clean - the staff is very impolite and not helpful in any way. We did not get the room we requested and received not even an apology or empathy that it couldn't be changed

I would never stay at this hotel again - there's a holiday inn express and red roof inn next door and I intend to stay at either of those instead of the baymont on my next trip to the tampa fairgrounds

Hotel looks nothing like picture on Expedia. Torn screens in the back. When I checked in I was given a room that smelled like cigars. I requested a change. The next room had a window that did not open and a sink with no plug. I took the 3rd room. The AC unit was dirty with salt spilled inside on the vents. The non slip pads in the tub were black. It is next to the highway but no restaurants are nearby - you have to drive 10 minutes to get to stores or food, other than the wing house next door.

This hotel is awful! The lobby was very unkept. The floor was filthy.
The elevator was broken and even more disgusting than the floor! We asked for a nonsmoking room and walked in only to find a pack of cigarettes on the bed! This hotel needs some major maintenance! The sink leaked and the inside of the room door had hanging, shredded wood veneer! Needless to say, we did not end up staying at this hotel! While in the parking lot searching for another room at 10pm, we saw roaches crawling underneath the parked cars! To Baymont management: Please clean up this hotel! I will say that the manager on duty was very nice and very willing to give us a refund on the room!
