Didn't care for it A review of Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa
With the Hard Rock Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas being my hotel/casino when I'm in Vegas........I decided to make a room reservation at the brand new Hard Rock Hotel/Casino in Tampa and decided to drive over the week before to check it out. It was about an hour and 20 minute drive from Orlando and very easy to get to. I must say, the hotel and casino was very nice.......however, my disappointment came when the server came around for cocktail orders.......$1 for a cup of coffee, $1.50 bottle of water, etc. If people are putting their money in the slot machines.......then these items need to free or a lower price. Also, after walking the huge casino floor...........it appeared that no one was winning on the slot machines. I, myself, blew about $50 during my stay of two hours. No blackjack tables and no video poker either. When I returned home to Orlando - I immediately called and cancelled my room reservation. Unless I'm in the Tampa area on business..........I probably will not go back to the Hard Rock. Very disappointed!
