Well kept hotel, clean rooms, quiet, good breakfast at a perfect price. Friendly staff and the real bonus--a popcorn machine going all day and cookies at night! Only spent one night here but would definitely book this again. Good restaurants close by as well.

My dad had to have surgery due to cancer so we were pretty uptight with the pressures on us and decided to book a stay the night before surgery. The staff at this location was nothing less than perfect!

I have to say, I have been through quite a few hotels in Gainesville, Fl. My stay at the Sleep Inn was the best night stay I have had in a long time. The breakfast was wonderful and the bed was the best sleep away from home. I'm definitely recommending to everyone.

Stayed here while taking my son to Shands. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. Was very happy with my room and will definitely stay at this location again. Breakfast being available was also a nice bonus with staying here. Very close to Shands, UF and many great restaurants and shopping locations. Very easily accessible from the interstate.
