Worst of all- location, location, location! The exit and entrance to this hotel was complicated. If you miss the exit then the nearest turnaround adds another 15 or more minutes to your travel. If Busch Gardens is your destination, there are better situated choices at better rates. There was no breakfast and wifi was poor. Overall, would not stay here...

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you had such a hard time finding us. Many people love our location across from the Fairgrounds and Hard Rock Casino. Busch Gardens is fifteen minutes away. Again I am sorry for this issue and hope you will try us again.

The rain was heavy and it was difficult to see to drive so we stopped here Christmas eve rather than drive a few more hours. BIG mistake. Overpriced and nasty rooms. They advertised all new remodeled but I don't see how that's possible. The rooms had faux hardwood floors...the only positive I saw. The surround for the shower was old...

I was staying at this Red Roof every month for 3 to 5 nights every month for the last 5 months or so. The front desk staff (Olga and Jesse) were a pleasure to talk to. They treated me very nice and always smiled. I called and spoke with a woman named Angela to ask a few questions. Boy, her...

This hotel is not for those that like the better things in their sleeping arrangements. However, it is a short 10 minute walk to the Tampa Fairgrounds for a concert. The hotel is right off of I-4, making it extremely easy off and back on. The room was clean, the shower was hot and in good working order. Water stayed...

Don't use it -Room was not properly cleaned -The cracked a/c unit never got the room sufficiently cool -Basic, basic room. No coffee maker or fridge does not justify a price...

We travelled down from Gainesville to catch a concert at the Tampa Fairgrounds and booked this inn due to its close proximity - its just across the street. For our purposes it was central and ideal. The check-in was efficient and the staff most helpful. Our room was on the ground floor and in great order; very clean and comfortable...

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.
