“3 "Cs": Clean, Cheap, & Close!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This is a very clean, well kept property, at a great price point. No, it is not a luxury resort, and is a bit light on amenities, but if you want a good rate at place that is not scary, look no farther, and check in at this Red Roof.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The staff was friendly. The check in time for our room was 5 minutes. The rooms are stated to be brand new, which yes they are and very nice actually. The wood floors really make the room stand out. Everything in room was clean and smelt fine, IN THE ROOM...BUT this is an animal friendly hotel. I guess I didn't catch that when booking. When walking into the hotel I was immediately hit with the wet dog smell. It was thick and muggy smelling. Then walking down the hallway toward the elevator to get to my room, there was a potent cat urine smell. Which really throws you off. I was there for two days an the hotel had this smell the whole time. There were dogs everywhere. Yes I have dogs myself but I just don't see the point of allowing so many, every kind of breed and even cats into the hotel. I booked this hotel for family and they weren't very pleased overall. From all the great reviews I was exepecting more. Yes the rooms are nice but this is an average hotel. Just average. Location is walking distance from publix and restaurants but I didn't feel comfortable at night doing so. I think I would pay the little extra to stay at another hotel down the street. There is no continental breakfast, and the class of people staying at the hotel seemed a little shady to me...

I will honestly say that I'm very specific about the house I stay at. given the amount of money that had to be spent to bring my son down for bootcamp, this is establishment by far was excellent. I was really worried about the sleeping arrangements and convenience of additional restaurants in the area . the staff was very helpful and that was most appreciated.

This Red Roof Inn was such a great value! The rooms were spotless and updated. The beds were comfortable and the staff were professional and friendly. We felt safe and well taken care of. We would have loved to use the pool, but there was a few younger party people drinking beer & carrying on, so we passed on that. Lots of parking available and the hotel was in a clean, nice looking area with several hotel chains. A GREAT value for what we spent for the room. Will definitely stay here again on our way thru Florida.
