“Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Newly renovated rooms, comfortable beds. Pet friendly is a huge plus. The only problem was that the floor was dirty. Our feet turned black after showering and walking on the floor. It was obvious it had not been mopped in a while. Convenient location. Will stay here again.

We stayed on an over night trip to Tue Hard Rock Casino. We chose the hotel cause it is only a half mile from there. Our room had a bad odor when we checked inn and it smelt like mold or mildew. The bathroom had black stuff and hair in it. Our TV screen was cracked and had a little hole in it so you couldn't really watch TV. The air conditioner was very loud when it ran and did not cool very well. When we woke up the next morning we were really sick and I think it was from the mold or mildew in the room or coming from the air conditioner. I will not be back here. It is in a shady area of Tampa and you have people walking around the parking lot all day and night.

This Red Roof is a great place to stay! the hotel and grounds are very clean, and the staff is nothing but smiles. You are close to all the attractions in Tampa, with a good restaurant on each side, and Tampa Fairgrounds across the street. They also have nice rates for truckers!

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 superior king and it was a decent stay. The staff was friendly at check in and we like being able to walk to Wing House to eat and walk to the Amp. Kudos on the new room design and upgrades. The only thing I would suggest is better towels, as they are very thin and small.

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. I appreciated that the room had a/c on when we arrived (had made reservations weeks earlier). Thank you. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again next time I'm up in Tampa area.

Room Tip: We had a room in the back facing a greenway--very quiet and comfortable.

Thank you for your comments. So glad your walk to the venue worked out so well. My understanding is the concert was fantastic. Many guest walked from here and everyone I talked to had a great time. Thank you again and will see you at the next concert.

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 !
