Reviewed 9 February 2014

We found pills on the floor from previous guest, bugs in the room, and a less than friendly staff when checking who also seems to an unstable computer system. They did not check in guest based on the order of arrival, but instead based on who had a reservation. When making a request to stay near our in-laws that were...

During the processs of relocating from the west to Tampa, I stayed at this Red Roof almost every night. The rooms were clean and Parul at the front desk was exceptional to work with. She made sure that any issues I had with my rooms were immediately taken care of. For the price, this is a great place to stay...

Aside from the ant problem in our room, our bed was infested with fleas. I'm terrified of what I'm bringing home in my luggage. This hotel is disgusting. I'm informing the health department. There is NOTHING else I can add to this review.

Reviewed 17 January 2014

This motel was chosen based location, price, and TA reviews. The overall rating is, in my experience, correct. The room was clean, a bit small (not a big deal for me traveling on a business trip and only needing a place to sleep and shower), and the bed / pillows were comfortable. The price was very reasonable, and the staff...

Worst Red Roof I have ever stayed. The so called smoke-free rooms smell so bad. I actually found a empty cigarette box in the room (Room 215). The front desk person was so rude. I think they have a policy not to greet people, it looked like we were staying there for free. We had booked 2 rooms, my family...

Hello, I'm so very sorry for your unpleasant experience. We do take our guest satisfaction very seriously. Since becoming a 100% smoke free property a little over a year ago one of our biggest challenges has been trying to get guests to only smoke in the designated smoking areas. This is the first I'm hearing an issue with cold water...

This has been a great hotel stay. Wonderful service and I would stay here again. Great breakfast, the rooms are very clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly. I love that security 24 hours a day. Great location because it's close to the theme parks.

We were impressed by the comfortable firm mattress, shower, and most of all, by an employee, Antoinette. It was evident at first sight that you are lucky to have such a person on your staff.

We were very unsure about the area as we were driving Busich Blvd to try to find a grocery store, There is a local one in close driving distance, but they did not have what we were looking for because they are more of a local meat market. It is with a lot of other hotels by Busch Gardens, if...
