Luckily, there was no fairground event happening so we were able to get a room. We had a non-smoking king bed room. It was comfortable and adequately appointed for a budget motel. Although the Wing House is next door, we wanted something else for dinner. We drove a few miles away to other eateries in the area.TIP! This location charges... More

I was very impressed with this hotel. This was my first visit and I picked this hotel because dogs( my poodle) are welcome. Well in the back of my mind I was thinking that it would not be clean because of the dogs being there. but I was wrong when I walked into my room there was no sign/smell that... More

The property is located just across the street form the Fairgrounds concert venue. Easy walk to shows and no parking hassles. The room smelled like mold and mildew. Very sketchy guests in adjoining rooms. The room was old in poor shape and smelly. This is very basic and seemed somewhat unsafe. There are 2 other nicer chain hotels in the... More

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn with a few friends. We were in town to attend a concert directly across the street. While the hotel was quite busy with guests, they were very accommodating and welcoming! They made our stay wonderful and we will be sure to return in the future. If there were any complaint to be made,... More

Let me say ... I avoid Tampa as much as possible. One of my least favorite cities. But I wanted to attend a Hillary Clinton event at the Fairgrounds and this motel appeared to be right at junction of I-74 and I-4. It was right at that point so I didn't have to go into Tampa downtown AT ALL. I... More

Nice for the price... But would suggest someplace else for family... Kinda sketchy. The price also attracts a lot of Casino players and workers so wouldn't be fun for family. But just for sleeping it was good.

I loved the Red Roof Inn since it is so convenient to walk across the street for a concert and the Wing House is so close. Unfortunately, this past experience has left me thinking I need to find a new hotel. I booked the reservation for a party of three. I guess they only want two people taking showers because... More

We were directed to this location by Red Roof's customer relations after a living nightmare at the Red Roof Brandon location (see my review and run away from that place!). We had driven all night and paid for a room only to check-in to filth at our original hotel. It was nearly seven in the morning and we had no... More

This hotel was perfect for a concert we attended at the fairgrounds. This isn't a luxury hotel by any means, but it was clean and comfortable and seemed fairly updated. It was about a 15 minute walk to the amphitheater at the fairgrounds (you do have to cross a busy road, but it wasn't a problem). There is a sports... More
