“Great Place to Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Overall our stay was fantastic. The facilities appeared for the most part in great shape with a few small exceptions. The location was good for the area. Pricing was very reasonable and staff were pleasant to interact with. The combination of these things created a wonderful stay. We stayed in a Superior King room. Room was very clean and welcoming when we arrived.

Brand new fluffy towels, updated linens, bathroom has been redone, and new carpeting. They honored the walk in rate from hotelcoupons.com and it ended up being half what our usual trip overnight motel would have cost. I would definitely stay there again but may pay the difference to make sure of availability. It would still be less expensive than 2 or 3 other hotel/motels in the immediate area. Good overnight rest stop.

Room Tip: I don't know if all rooms were as good as ours so ask for a renovated room when you book or chec...

This is a review for Red Roof Inn Tampa Fairgrounds

The room was relatively clean and quiet. The overall experience, however, was average or less. Quality control with regard to equipment was poor. I had no heat or A/C, due to a faulty unit.
Additionally, management needs to improve their procedures with regard to the provision of documentation to guests: upon check-in, after they charge your credit card, no receipt is given unless requested - unlike nearly any other establishment. Only upon check-out is one given evidence of the amount of payment. I even witnessed another guest, who paid CASH, who had to return to the lobby because a receipt was not given to them. They naturally walked off, just like I did, expecting the correct paperwork to be supplied to guests. After leaving the lobby, then checking, we both had to revisit the office.
The surroundings of the property were somewhat bucolic, with the exception of some road noise from the Interstate freeway (I-4) not far away. Amenities are few. I did not rate the pool or fitness center, because there were none. The coffee in the lobby wasn't bad. By multiple sources, I was told that the adjacent restaurant, Ken's Wing House, has some flavorful offerings.
The property really is average, potentially deserving 2 and one-half circles instead of just two circles. However, I did not care for the attitude of RRI management, either at the outlet or corporate level, and, therefore, this establishment loses a half circle on that measure.
I will stay here again, but only if I can't find anything else while I'm in the area.

We stayed here for one night when visiting Bush Gardens. We got a good rate because we used a coupon but what the coupon didn't say was that the room you get is a smaller room without amenties such as a fridge or coffee maker. If you do want these amenities, you pay the regular price. Not a problem but it should be written on the coupon, I think.

The 1-kingsize bedroom was renovated and looked clean. Bathroom was clean as well. I would suggest to choose a 2-queensize bed room if available because these are a bit bigger.

In the end, a decent room for a decent price but there are other hotels which offer more amenities for the same price.

Room Tip: Choose a Double Queensize bed- room to make sure you get a larger room. The 1 kingsize bed-rooms are...

We have stayed at this Red Roof Inn many times. Although a low nightly rate, you get more for your money. No breakfast, free coffee 24/7. We enjoy visiting with Olga, who is the best employee ever! You are always greeted with a big smile! This location is very close to the casino; restaurant next door; safe location.

I'll give 4 stars...it was basically pretty clean and front desk staff were very friendly. I think it was the thing I had to kill that was crawling up the wall that turned me off a bit. But I know that can happen anywhere. Did not see anything else.

Lobby smells like cigarettes although it's non smoking. We walked into our room and the smell about knocked us over! I actually gagged. Smelled old and nasty! We had to go to the convenience store to buy air freshener. Thick dust on top of a light fixture. Stained comforter, blanket looked dirty. l should have spent the extra $ and stayed at the holiday inn. Thank goodness we brought the Lysol!!!
