“Another Good Concert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Same as my old review, only thing to add is their ice machines actually work. Cheap, clean, directly across from the amphitheatre. As always there is a $1.50 they charge when you check out for a safe, whether you use it or not.

Room Tip: The 5$ upgrade to the "Superior King" room definitely worth it- comes with fridge/micro an...

Thank you very much for your comments. I am glad you had another great experience here at our hotel. Hope you enjoyed the concert as well as our new rooms. Being across the street from the Amphitheater does have its advantages. Hope to see you again soon.

This hotel was located across the road for the Florida State Fairgrounds. Resturant next door. The rooms were very nice and clean, I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Located across the street from the ford amp and next to winghouse, so perfect for concert over night stay. But wouldnt stay there again. Dirty rooms that smell and are very small. My advice is to book early at the Holiday Inn or somewhere else nearby!!

I was worried about staying at a "motel" type hotel in this area but I was greeted by friendly staff & nicely upgraded interiors! Everything was clean (enough) and the proximity to the amphitheater was perfect! Saved at least $60 staying here instead of next door. Restaurant located conveniently next door.. Perfect for my overnight concert stay :)

Rooms recently renovated, nice hardwood (laminate) floors, updated fixtures, clean and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this place was for a RRI! Went for the KISS show so didnt really care where we stayed as long as we didnt have to drive - this place did not disappoint! Wing House in same parking lot (the girls were all dressed in KISS make up, it was fun!) and we walked to and from the venue after dinner & some drinks there. It was great watching everyone else sit and wait in traffic trying to get out as we entered our cool comfy room! Great value for the money and I would HIGHLY recommend staying here to anyone who is catching a show at the amphitheater!

I stayed here a few months ago and it was an average experience. Nothing really bad to report, it was clean and did the job. And about average value. I saw that they were redoing one of the wings of the hotel though, and on this visit I was able to get one of the renovated rooms. They are beautiful! Nice new decor and sheets, (un laminated) wood floors. I am uploading a few photos which can describe the room much better than I can.

Only negative: Room service came way earlier than I expected (855) which woke me up, and I asked the lady to come back later. She never did, so I had to get fresh towels from the lobby. Otherwise good service.

This is a little far from Downtown tampa, but for the price it's worth the stay. You have hotels in the downtown and Dale Mabry/airport area that cost $30-$50 more than this, and are of inferior quality.

MAKE SURE YOU GET A RENOVATED ROOM!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room.
