Our road trip was 3 weeks long, so we stayed in a LOT of different lodgings. Unfortunately, this Red Roof Inn was the most disappointing. Red Roof has a standard, kind of spartan, room design, and that is fine. It's easier to keep clean when there's not much in a room, and it WAS a clean and tidy room... except... More

This hotel is the dirtiest and most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. My husband and I booked 2 nights here and on the first night, we woke up in the middle of the night to find a roach crawling in the bathroom and another one on the ceiling. We reported this to the front desk employee, who couldn't... More

Worst place ever. Went to a concert at the TPA fairgrounds and thought this would be a convenience place to stay. Have never seen such a disgusting hotel room in my life! Rusty, pitted fixtures, corroded metal lights etc. Mold growing between window panes. When we opened the door there was this disgusting floral smell that almost knocked us over... More

I have stayed in Red Roof Inns quite often for the last eight years.....some good, some not so hot. Their "frequent stayer" club is generous with free nights. Honestly, I've been at this Tampa property before and haven't been sorry. It's clean, the reception staff is always accomodating and it's convenient to the attractions and highways. This time, I'm feeling... More

Front desk staff was initially very friendly, but when I asked to change rooms because of the filth I was told they can "bring me new sheets, because they don't have any housekeeping". The description said "newly renovated". Yes, they did paint the walls but beyond that it was gross. When I changed my own sheets, I found the mattress... More

We booked this hotel because we were attending a concert across the street at the fairgrounds. It's a basic hotel and was pretty clean. We were a bit disappointed that there is no pool. It was a quick easy walk across the street to the concert and there is a Wing house in the parking lot which was convenient.

Our room had recently been renovated so it was actually surprisingly pleasant. The room was clean, the bathroom was also very very clean. The front desk clerk was friendly and checked us in quickly. The room had a somewhat musty smell upon entering, but that is sometimes common in Florida. I would stay at this hotel again if going to... More

Great check-in experience. I used my new RediCard. They give military discounts. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice room. Walking distance to gas station, and restaurant. We extended our stay from one night to three nights. We will do our site seeing from this home base
