The room had undergone the recent update/renovation that the chain is undertaking so it was a decent enough looking room with firm beds, good pillows, and comfortable furnishings. Also, the room was very quiet, and we heard almost no noise from other rooms or even from nearby I-75. The location is very convenient with nearby shopping, restaurants, and other amenities. It's also just a few miles from the UF campus. They have a nice size swimming pool, too.
The issues we found were that the A/C unit did not seem capable of removing the humidity from the air. The first room we were given had a noticeable odor when we entered, and we found the the vent of the A/C to be covered with black mold--very toxic stuff. Of course, they immediately gave us a different room, which was much better. However, in the new room one of the bedspreads was totally wrinkled and unsightly, but we decided we could live with it since it didn't jeopardize our health. The bath soap they provide leaves you feeling slimy, and the complimentary coffee in the lobby is undrinkable.
We received the Florida resident rate, which was a good deal, and we chose Red Roof Inn because we were originally going to bring our dog and Red Roof Inn has a Pets-Stay-Free policy. Who else offers that?
