Red Roof Inn Tampa Fairgrounds-Casino

Reviewed July 27, 2014

We're not Red Roof regulars.

The only reason we stayed here is that they don't charge for pets ! + Point

As others have said; the rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable ! + Point

But, the pathways are dirty and smell unclean.

If you're "on the road" need some where comfortable for a nights sleep and want change from $80, this'll work.

This was the first time we got a room before a concert at the Fairgrounds. This Inn was awesome. Clean, quiet, and very convenient . The Price was very affordable and we will definitely stay here again and tell our friends and family about this Inn.

Second time I stayed here, both times for concerts. I'm glad it was only one night. The room itself was clean enough but the outside and stair areas were dirty. I was nervous based on what I was seeing before I checked in and on way to room. I felt better once we seen the rooms. We were only here to sleep one night so we didn't use showers. Had a little trouble with the lights over the sink. Didn't work all the time. I will stay again for one night but I hope the clean the outside up. Based on looks of outside area and shady people hanging in parking lot, not sure I'd recommend to a friend though.

Had to wait to check in as well, the front door of office locked with note said be back in ten minutes, waited well over before anyone came back.

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.
