We booked a night stay at the Red Roof Inn this month and will never go back. When we first walked in we were overcome with a strong smell of mold and mildew. It was not clean, blood on the wall, and dead bugs along the wall near the bathroom. The area it was located was questionable as well. Next...

My family and I attended a concert. We were able to walk across the street versus driving in traffic. Also, after the concert we were able to grab some grub by foot as well. I was worried that the rooms would not be so nice, but even that was a nice surprise. For a Red Roof Inn this location stands...

I have stayed at this location a few times now over the years. The room (233) was very clean and cool upon arrival. They were very busy with a large concert crowd expected but everyone was courteous and quick. I had requested an adjacent room for a relative and that was handled perfectly. The cost seemed higher going through hotels.com...

I came for work and Angela was spectacular in her service . My company will definitely book here again. We were down here from Jan 2nd to February 15th before and Angela helped us then as well. She is a great asset to them and should be recognized for it.

Thank you for your response, I will make sure I show Angela your comments. Mentioning her name in this review is a big pat on the back for any staff member. I hope to see you again soon, and again thank you for your comments.

Stayed at the Red Roof Inn Tampa Fairgrounds Mar 1 2015. We paid more than expected for less than expected. We were told they couldn't offer the Hotel Coupon rate because there was an event on at the Fairground. Given that it was Sunday night and the Motel was half-empty, I was skeptical of this claim. Sounded like it was...

I'd like to open the review by saying I am not overly picky with my hotels, especially when basically looking for somewhere just to crash for a night, as I was in this case. A friend of mine and I stayed in one of the "Premium King" rooms. We just needed somewhere to crash for one night in the Tampa...

Pros: This Red Roof Inn offers a competitive rate on a standard room. It is right off of I-4. If you're traveling with a pet, there is NO extra charge or deposit for your animal companion! Cons: The basic room offers a bed, a TV, and a bathroom; there is no microwave or fridge. The back parking lot floods when...

Worst of all- location, location, location! The exit and entrance to this hotel was complicated. If you miss the exit then the nearest turnaround adds another 15 or more minutes to your travel. If Busch Gardens is your destination, there are better situated choices at better rates. There was no breakfast and wifi was poor. Overall, would not stay here...

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you had such a hard time finding us. Many people love our location across from the Fairgrounds and Hard Rock Casino. Busch Gardens is fifteen minutes away. Again I am sorry for this issue and hope you will try us again.

The rain was heavy and it was difficult to see to drive so we stopped here Christmas eve rather than drive a few more hours. BIG mistake. Overpriced and nasty rooms. They advertised all new remodeled but I don't see how that's possible. The rooms had faux hardwood floors...the only positive I saw. The surround for the shower was old...
