I stayed at the Hard Rock because I wanted to be able to enjoy myself without having to look for outside activities. When we arrived at 4pm for check in your room was not ready, they said they would call us when ready but never received a call. I asked them why they did not call us and they said...

We came here to escape the chilly weather in NYC, assuming this HR property would be as lively as their others. Instead, we found 400lb people on Rascal scooters gorging themselves at the buffet. We found chain-smoking grandmothers gambling away their kids’ inheritance at 7am. We found...CASINO FOLK. The HRH Tampa doesn’t even try to live up to the fun,...

Each time I visit Florida I stay at the Seminole Hard Rock. The rooms are amazing. Always clean, and the beds are amazing. The best nights rest I've had at a Hotel in a long time. Highly recommended!!

We stayed here to go see The Who at Amalie. It's about a $20.00 cab ride to the arena - but worth it. We had a King on the 9th floor, view was of the parking lot - but very quiet. Loved the bathroom. Tub is deep and was perfect for a luxurious bubble bath. Tub and Toilet separated from...

Was visiting Tampa Bay / Dunedin area this past week, took a quick trip to the Hardrock Casino -- I didn't win but it seemed like a nice place. The staff was very friendly and the casino was very clean. Better luck next time hopefully. Beautiful ride over the Bay back to Clearwater area.

We stayed here a few years back and decided to try again as part of a quick birthday get-away. The room was clean and comfortable, but then again it should be for the price. With just under 300 rooms and probably enough demand for 1000, they are not shy about room rates. Best advice.....book early. The check-in could have been...

Worst casino I've ever been to. I've been a players club card holder fo several years and have seen first hand the decline in payouts and amenities. Even the comps and conveniences have gone away. Like dollar kiosks won't give you your coins, you have to walk to a service desk and wait in line. I and many others I've...
