Masters Inn Tampa Fairgrounds

Reviewed 18 January 2016

Stay somewhere else, I'm begging you! I had a cockroach walk across my face in the middle of the night, got up and saw them everywhere! The room smelled horrible, the sheets were pilled, the carpet stained, the mini-fridge rusty and the front desk unaffected. If that wasn't bad enough, the traffic noise is at decibles beyond belief. I booked for a 3 night stay, and they wouldn't reimburse me for any of it. It was worth it to me to just walk away

This place may look nice online but it's horrible. The only good thing was the staff was nice. Other then that my fiance and I found roaches crawling around and the room smelt bad. We were there no longer then 20 mins then we were like no we want our money back. It was ridiculous and disgusting. Never again. The weekly rate is not worth it!!!!! Because of this we had to find another hotel and the one we found was beyond amazing. They were the nicest people and the room was so great. The weekly rate is a little more but totally worth it! Stay at Clarion Hotel on fowler it's way better and way more worth the price. Owners are amazing too!

After reading a few negative reviews I thought I'd still give this hotel a shot despite of what I read, which im so glad that I did.My stay was comfortable and clean. there are needed improvements,but bearable. Would definitely come back.

Bugs everywhere. Crawling up the wall. On the floor. I'm just a young girl traveling to Florida for an interview. I have called three times to talk to the manager but he is "never there" and won't return my phone call. My mom said they should refund my money because that is absolutely unacceptable. They won't even speak to me. DON'T stay here. Awful!!!

There are very nice new Masters Inns ... this is not one of them.

The people seem nice, the transaction went smoothly in every way.

The room was ready, shower was nice... but the best possible stay at this motel cannot exceed a 2 out of 5.

Externally and internally everything is old and threadbare... large cigarette burn holes in the sheets, rust on the mini fridge, cracks in all the external concrete.

But it is cheap ... and it should be.

If a bed and a parking spot is what you are looking for ... you can definitely do worse.

BUT ... being convenient to the Fairgrounds does not mean you are by the front entrance.

Room Tip: Second floor feels safer... INSIST on non-smoking
