We travelled down from Gainesville to catch a concert at the Tampa Fairgrounds and booked this inn due to its close proximity - its just across the street. For our purposes it was central and ideal. The check-in was efficient and the staff most helpful. Our room was on the ground floor and in great order; very clean and comfortable... More

We're not Red Roof regulars. The only reason we stayed here is that they don't charge for pets ! + Point As others have said; the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable ! + Point But, the pathways are dirty and smell unclean. If you're "on the road" need some where comfortable for a nights sleep and want... More

This was the first time we got a room before a concert at the Fairgrounds. This Inn was awesome. Clean, quiet, and very convenient . The Price was very affordable and we will definitely stay here again and tell our friends and family about this Inn.

Second time I stayed here, both times for concerts. I'm glad it was only one night. The room itself was clean enough but the outside and stair areas were dirty. I was nervous based on what I was seeing before I checked in and on way to room. I felt better once we seen the rooms. We were only here... More

Newly renovated rooms, comfortable beds. Pet friendly is a huge plus. The only problem was that the floor was dirty. Our feet turned black after showering and walking on the floor. It was obvious it had not been mopped in a while. Convenient location. Will stay here again.

This Red Roof is a great place to stay! the hotel and grounds are very clean, and the staff is nothing but smiles. You are close to all the attractions in Tampa, with a good restaurant on each side, and Tampa Fairgrounds across the street. They also have nice rates for truckers!

We always stay in the area when we go to concerts and have avoided this property because it was always run down and the beds were hard as rocks.
