We had been driving all day and I had reserved our room ahead of time. The price was very reasonable and very accommodating. The advantage is the on/off access from the interstate and the restaurants nearby.

My daughter was having surgery on a very busy week in Gainesville. I had trouble finding a place that could accommodate her needs. They not only found me a room for the entire time I needed it but gave me a medical discount also. Hotel staff was super friendly, housekeeping was outstanding and the hot breakfast was delicious every day....

There are many hotels in the vicinity of the Sleep Inn, which is at a very busy intersection of Florida Highway 75 and one of the "main drags" in Gainesville, Archer Road. We have stayed at other properties in this area, several more expensive, but due to TripAdvisor ratings, decided to try Sleep Inn this time. We were not disappointed....

We stayed one night. It was a pleasant, reasonably priced hotel for the area. We used a coupon from the travel books found at interstate rest areas. Check in was good. We had some popcorn and cookies for a snack. The room was clean, comfortable. Bathroom was spacious compared to some other higher priced hotels. Breakfast was filling, many choices....

This is the first time I have stayed at a Sleep Inn & Suites. The room was comfortable. So comfortable my wife and I wanted to buy pillows like theirs. The staff was friendly and the hot breakfast above par. Cookies, popcorn, sweets, and coffee were available in the lobby.

We stayed 1 night in a very clean and comfortable room. It was very quiet despite building work going on across the parking lot. The staff were really friendly. The free breakfast was good and more than adequate. Nice touch with the free popcorn & coffee in the lobby. Slept really well. We've paid more for lesser quality elsewhere.
