This place is average but it accepts pets and is right across the street from the amphitheater so it is quite convenient for a concert or show. This is not the Ritz but it was clean and the staff was very friendly.

It drives me nuts when people dog a 2 star for being a 2 star. Want better? Pay more. Want a very convenient and clean place for not a lot of money? Here you go. Super convenient and clean. I've been here more than once...that says something. If you want a clean place that's quick to get to after a... More

When my friend and i first arrived she was asked by one of the clientele if he could bum a cigarette...she was not happy and little concerned about our safety...after we arrived back from the Casino pulling up into the parking lot it was very dark and we just wanted to get in the room and shut the door and...

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

This hotel is infested with roaches. We had to leave all our luggage in the car because we were afraid to carry home roaches. It was a late arrival and we didn't feel Ike looking for another hotel. We only stayed one night, never again. The paint was falling off the ceiling. Not a pleasant experience. When I told the... 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.
