Weekend Stay

We went here for a Junior roller derby tournament that was just 4 minutes down the road (that's the main reason I picked this place). The neighborhood was rough, but I expected that. The Floor was filthy. I had to call for towels twice because housekeeping didn't leave clean ones. The toilet ran throughout the 2nd night & we couldn't get it to stop the next morning at all. Could use some serious updating of furniture and facility and a coffee maker & mini fried in room would be great. Other than that It was not horrible & I would stay there again.

Not bad for the money

I knew going in this was not a 5 star or Ritz Carlton type of property. Location is convenient to USF and the casino. Overall a decent property in a good location. The staff seemed pleasant and quite helpful. The surrounding neighborhood seemed pleasant and safe. It's located right next to Sami's Bakery, and there are several stores and restaurants all around within walking distance for your convenience. A very pleasant stay at a reasonable price!!! Didn't really have high expectations going in, but I have to admit that those expectations were exceeded.

Don't take the inferior room!

The first room offered to be had ripped carpet, peeling paint and bubbled paint in the bathroom. When I went to cancel my room I was given a room that was clean and fine for the price but the first impression was hard to forget! I would not go back.

Roaches and Rudeness

Upon checking in, I was of course required to sign documentation stating that I would be charged a $200 fee if I smoked in the room and a $1.50 fee for the safe, the latter of which could be waived at checkout (it said that on the paper). I asked for a receipt, and she said that she couldn't give me one. I said "Ok, that's fine. I'll just snap a picture with my phone." She then said that I wouldn't be allowed to do that either. I reminded her that the law does not forbid me to take any pictures (she was foreign, so maybe she was unaware). She still said no. Even though I knew it was my right to take a picture of whatever I want, I didn't because I was also aware that it was her right to refuse to let me stay there. So I swallowed my pride, handed the signed paper back to her, and went to say goodbye to my friends for the night. When I came back in for my room keys and luggage, two security guards were waiting there and watching me like hawks. I politely asked her who her manager was and she told me. I later complained to the manager about this treatment and told her the full story. She agreed that I am allowed to take a picture of whatever I want and that she should have explained that even though it states it on paper, I am NOT able to waive the fee for the safe even though I didn't use it once. Regarding the stay itself, the room had multiple roaches and I was afraid to go to sleep at night for fear of them crawling on me...for good reason, because it happened. I smoked outside my hotel room, and the people in the room next to me called the front desk to complain instead of politely asking me to go to the other side of the building, which I would have done either way even though it is not against any rules to smoke outside your room. She also later accused me of opening her door. This place was awful.

excellent value

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay in the Busch gardens area you'd be hard pressed to find a place where you feel more comfortable.

So much potential, so little care

The location was the only thing good about this hotel. Lights were broken, curtains were broken, safe was broken, comforter was stained and filthy, towels were not replaced after the first night, it was disgusting under the bed (old food, used tissues, etc), and more. I had another experience at this hotel two years ago that was much better, but its clear that since then the owners have just decided to allow the property to fall into disrepair. Very very disappointed. This hotel is pretty close to "dump status".

Go to Busch Gardens and stay in a card board box close by over this (Red Roof) hotel. It'll feel about the same.
