We stayed here to watch the tim mcgraw show and because of this gig we paid a little more than we would have for an off highway motel. It was extremely competitive for the area and straight across from the venue. The reception staff were great and the room was clean and fairly modern with cable tv. I wasn't expecting... More

Check in at the front office was great, the girls working there were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean, however it needs attention. We stayed there because we were going to a concert, so we payed 113. for the room. Normally the rooms are $49. to $59. It is definitely not a $113. a night hotel, $49. to $59.... More

I have been staying at this hotel for over 5 years. It's very convenient if you are attending an event at the fairgrounds. The rooms are clean and comfortable. One of the main reasons I continue to stay here is the wonderful service I receive from Olga. She knows me by name and always takes very good care of me.... More

We very hesitantly booked a room here to avoid driving home after a concert. Most of the negative reviews were correct. The rooms smell moldy, the AC sucks as it runs and runs but the room never really cools off and I woke up very stuffy and congested, and the two "standard" beds are barely bigger than twin beds.

I travel quite a lot and this hotel is one of the tops on my list for the area and price. The staff is very pleasant and helpful, specially Olga at the front desk. She remembers my name as soon as I walk in. Like a home away from home. I definitely recommend this hotel. Food nearby and highways nearby,... More

I just finished a stay at the Red Roof Inn Tampa Fairgrounds. This hotel is my, "Go To" hotel when I am attending something at the Fairgrounds.

Room was clean. Hotel was completely full due to the concert across the street. Had to settle for 2 double beds. No fridge, no microwave, and the alarm clock in the room was broken. The staff was pleasant. Flat screen TV. Very close to the fairgrounds and just a few feet from the Winghouse restaurant. Free coffee in the lobby... More

Stayed here following a concert at the fairgrounds across the street. Proximity to the fairgrounds is the only thing that is really good. The room clearly smelled of mildew, we woke up coughing and congested. The ceiling was pealing near the bathroom area. The AC is too close to the bed, so you either have it on and get a... More

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
