I stayed at this hotel a number of times and mostly because I like it's location. Close to everything I need though if you want to have more dining options you would need to drive for good 15 minutes. Price is also right. However major drawback for me is that any room I stayed in smelled like cigaret or/and mold.... More

I have stayed at this hotel more times than I can remember! Whenever there's a show at the State Fairgrounds, or I want to hit up the Hard Rock for some gambling, I always stay here! After they redid the place, it looks even better! Great location (walking distance to the fairgrounds), friendly staff, good quality rooms and awesome rates!... More

My brother and I stayed at the Red Roof in because we wanted to go the Hard Rock Casino. I think it was a great alternative to paying high lodging prices at the Hard Rock. The front desk was friendly and the room was clean. Keep in mind that the rooms have double beds and not queen beds and there... More

This was a decent place to stay. Good location but not the cleanest. The floor was sticky and just felt dirty. Bring your slippers or flip flops. But the water pressure in the shower was absolutely AMAZING!! I would stay here again just because of that, just wear my flip flops.

I stayed at this Red Roof about 15 months ago and was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and comfort, so wanted to repeat the experience on this trip. Big disappointment. My first mistake was paying the "special Florida resident" rate I was offered by email. I later found a coupon for $30 less but couldn't renegotiate. While the room was... More

I made reservations at this hotel not only for the Trip Advisor ratings but the low price. I was pleased to see that they have a Florida Residents Discount. The rest of our experience was downhill. We arrived to spend some time at the State Fair right across the street. The empty parking lot should have gave me a clue.... More

After a cancelled flight, we were rescheduled to fly into Tampa the next day to take the cruise we had planned and saved for a year. Unfortunately we were delayed in NYC and by the time we arrived in Tampa our ship had sailed. We were tired, angry, hungry and miserable. We rented a car and began to head towards... More

We stayed one night at the Red Roof and the "new" rooms are great. The bed was comfortable, the water pressure in the shower was great, there was a 32 inch LCD, and hardwood floors. We didn't really have to utilize the staff except for check-in, but that went smoothly. The downside was that there really isn't anything close-by to... More
