Stayed at this motel in room 146, a king bed superior room. Was leary after reading some of the bad reviews but was impressed with this room. The room had a hardwood floor instead of carpet which was a nice change. The room was large and the ac unit was super cold which was great after walking around in the... More

My husband and I booked a room for my nephews graduation; which was taking place at the Tampa Fairgrounds. We chose this hotel because of the location and it had a restaurant in front (walking distance) which was important since we had driven 12 hrs. We went to check in.....the front clerk was okay lifeless would be a good description.... More

This hotel is not close to anything except the hard rock and the fairgrounds. Expect an expensive taxi ride otherwise. The room was small and furnished cheaply. The bathroom has a small fan but as soon as you open the front door there is an overwhelming odor. There was 1 towel and 1 dirty washrag. TV doesn't have many channels,... More

If I could give this hotel Zero Stars, I would. My boyfriend and I booked a room through Expedia and I regretted it from the moment we arrived. The front desk person and a frequent stayer warned me to not go around back because they got some rain and it flooded. The frequent stayer also warned that his "tire blew... More

Kandy was working the front desk when we arrived. She went above and beyond helping us. We kept running into problems (none to do with her or hotel) and she took the time to trouble shoot and was so very polite. Thank you Kandy!! She made our stay a great one.

I would highly recommend not staying at this hotel. If housekeeping was a priority at this hotel, we wouldn't have had to go down for fresh towels EVERY night of our stay. Our garbage was NEVER changed. There were burn holes in our blankets. ABSOLUTELY WILL NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN.

This hotel is across the street from the Tampa Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds host many events and concerts. The only reason we stay here is because of the location. It is great to walk to and from the concert and not have to worry about parking, traffic and driving 2 1/2 hours home after a concert. That is the only reason... More

I will admit that my husband and I are not frequent Red Roof visitors and I think we still feel the same. We were in town for a concert across the street at the Fairgrounds and by the time we booked very few rooms were still available. They have done some minimal upgrading in that bathroom and half of main... More

The only positive I can really give this hotel is that it is far better than getting a DUI and spending the night in jail. All of the rooms are smoke free, but our room reeked of smoke. There was mold on the ceiling, the AC didn't work right and worst of all the smoke detector was missing with just... More
