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. While visiting a friend who was staying there I got to see the updated rooms and sit on a bed that was actually comfortable. We decided to stay there in the... More

We walked to the Springsteen concert and next door to restaurant for food and libation. No swimming pool but very clean, quiet location despite being right off highway (easy off/on-I-4 and 301). Front desk staff very pleasant and accomodating. Dogs are welcome (although I left mine at home). Manager Mark very welcoming and interesting. Even a gas station next door.... More

Found this hotel when I came down last year for Sunset Music festival. Was very impressed by how big the room was. Ad the hardwood floor was different but a very nice touch. It was right off the highway and right next to a wing house. Everything about the stay was lovely and I would recommend it to anyone !

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
