“Awesome service at the front desk from Parul .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

about a week ago our house caught on fire and the Red Cross put us up at the Red Roof Inn on Bush... it was a very stressful time but the customer service at the Red Roof Inn and one front desk employee in particular, Parul, was excellent and very accommodating which made our stay stressand free and very pleasant... greeting us with a smile always. Thank u Parul for reminding me what great customer service feels like!! :-) I will return to see your smiling face soon:) thanks again!

I was pleased with the service of the front desk young ladies Parul and Amber. They was very nice and very helpful. And I would tell other about Red Roof (Tampa Busch). The only thing is I had a problem with one of the housekeeper (Cookie) didn't clean the room like it should've been clean. I feel that the supervisor should check the rooms after the housekeepers finished.

Room Tip: pick a room in the building where the office.

This was my first time staying at a red roof seeing that I am a choice rewards member but I must say over all the room was great Parul the front desk attended was excellent she was the first person I spoke to in tampa that had great customer service skills and they need more people like her. The only thing I didn't like was the water pressure from the shower other then that my stay your hotel and customer service was all 10's

The Red Roof in was a very good choice for us to make. The people were very nice and our room was clean. the service was also awesome.The beds were very comfy unlike some places i have been and they were either to soft or to hard. i liked the tv most places have the older style tvs but the red roof inn has the flat screen tv. they also have a nice pool and hot tub to relax in after a long day

Start with a 5-rating, remove one for the age of the building and the furnishings, and a second for the neighborhood, makes a 3-rating. There's a sidewalk in front for walking, but pawn shops, tanning salons and payday loan shops diminish the area. A big fan of Red Roof, I applaud their efforts to provide affordable, quality lodging.

My daughter attends college in Tampa so I visit several times per year and have stayed in numerous hotels/motels. This Red Roof has improved significantly since last year, with new carpeting, beds and television. The money we save on the rate allows us to splurge on breakfast/lunch or Busch Gardens.

I travel for a living and since My little furry companion is always with me; I seek out RRI because of their pet policy. Booked room on phone which was easy and professional. Upon arrival I thought oh no hear we go again. The hotel is not in the best of areas with tons of suspicious foot traffic. Checked in with no problem, very courteous and professional. Was given a room on back side and was totally 100% satisfied. The room was spotless and smelled fresh. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi was open and clean. The night was quite and uneventful. I will return!
