The lady who checked me into the hotel was friendly. When I entered the room and turned the light on roaches scattered. I'm glad there were two beds because the first one had what appeared to be blood stains on the sheets. There were bed bugs in the bed so I didn't sleep very well. Before leaving I wanted to...

We had cancelled a reservation at another motel and didn't want to spend $150 or more per night so we checked out this Rodeway which is very close to Busch Gardens. First room we were offered had a messed up bed. Bed was made up in next room and it seemed clean enough so we took the room. We threw...

If this motel hadn't been so close to Busch Gardens, we would have left! Black mold in the bathrooms, no iron, no hair blowdryer. The front desk attendant was nice but not knowledgeable about the room amenities. I paid $76 for the night, and got $30/night accomodations. Never again! Red Roof Inn should be ashamed to have this particular motel...

The room was in poor condition. The walls very thin and a lot of loud music well past midnight . A lot of cars coming and going in middle of night . For the price of the room, should have at least been able to sleep. After this experience I now appreciate, read and evaluate lodgings based on the reviews...

Fresh off a cruise, booked this hotel after we docked, since my flight wasn't until the next morning. Dropped off the luggage in the room and left to explore Tampa. Back that night and noticed a dead roach in the bathroom, numerous holes in the walls (some patched, some not), and furniture that didn't belong. Bed seemed clean enough after...

Honestly, it's hard to imagine how this could have gone worse. Let me just give you the basics about why this place is so bad, and then you can read my full tirade if you're so inclined: tiny, dreary room. Zero amenities, no microwave or fridge, no cheap "Continental Breakfast" in the morning, not even one of those low-end, one...

My fiancé & I visited Florida the past weekend & we already had this booked & paid for, as we got to the front desk I tried to check in & the lady didnt allow us to since we were under 21 but over 18. As we walked out of the lobby she yelled, "don't call the police". We lost...

I stayed here for four nights and paid $60 per night, which is honestly too much money to pay for a hotel like this. I think $35-40 would be a fair price, but we all know hotel prices are rarely fair. The room itself had a few redeeming qualities, including a massive flat screen TV and good WiFi reception. On...

Our flight arrived late, so we checked in at 1:00 am. Atmosphere could best be described as ghetto housing project. I told my parents to not leave their room under any circumstance! My entry door had been kicked in, so the deadbolt was rendered useless, the safety latch was gone along with about a 2 foot section of door frame....

Our room reeked of cigarette smoke and worse. My feet were sticky and black after walking barefoot in the room while we got dressed.The toilet leaked into the wall, so much so that the wall and floor were wet, and so noisy we ended up just turning it off for the night so we could sleep. The bathroom walls had...

“Ask for a room in the far corner of the property, away from the pool. The rooms near the pool tend to be the noisiest.”
