To be frank, the bedroom was really nice and modern. I found the bathroom a bit dirty, but not a big deal either. If I came at a hotel to Gainesville, I would repeat without hesitating, yet I find it too expensive for what it is included: just a bed and a bathroom and no breakfast. It has some things... More

From the moment I walked in, each staff member I encountered (there were 4), greeted me. Monica was amazing! She was coming, kind & very courteous. The room was clean & unexpectedly nice for the reasonable price. I was traveling with a dog- no extra charge. The room was tidy, well lit & had excellent air conditioning. The room smelled... More

I was totally shocked to find out this Red Roof had absolutely no breakfast for their guests, since I stayed at another Red Roof two days ago for $66 & had a pretty nice breakfast. The front desk said all Red Roof Inns are different...good to know for future reference, but probably info they should mention when you book. It... More

I was very satisfied with my stay here, they got me right in no problems. The service was good, and the rooms not only smelt clean but felt clean as well. I looked around and saw nothing to really complain about. I missed breakfast and did not swim but I do still recommend this place over it's neighbors. It is... More

This hotel is very inexpensive but very nice! It is super clean, rooms are spacious, and the water is hot! There is no pet fee! The down side is there is no breakfast but there is a Waffle House across the street. Also the location is amazing!! Everything is right there! Food, movies, shopping!

We recently stayed at the Red Roof Inn for a Florida game day weekend. On Saturday morning, the in room hair dryer was malfunctioning. It would work for a little while and then cut out. I called down to the front desk and James said he would look for another hair dryer. When he could not find one, he showed... More

The hotel is conveniently located to the interstate, restaurants, shopping, hospitals, etc. It is quiet, clean, and it felt safe. Staff are always present and pleasant. Even the hotel guests were pleasant. Dog friendly for folks with only one dog. Lots of places to walk a dog. We will be staying here again.

The property was nice, conveniently located, quiet and a good price but I'm still disappointed that there wasn't a free continental breakfast included (which I was aware of when I booked the room). It seems to be the norm to have breakfast provided these days and I feel should be part of the stay. Other than that, no complaints!

Every single employee of this hotel wants to make sure you enjoy your stay. From the front desk with Monica, Alexis and Aleksei to the housekeeping staff, it's all top of the line. The rooms are bright and clean, the location is near everything, and the rates are great! I won't stay anywhere else when I visit Gainesville!

Front desk staff are friendly and willing to go above and beyond. With their help, we were able to share a taxi with other couple to the football game at a lower group rate. Room is clean and comfortable. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Very reasonable price too, in my opinion. Definitely will be back on my next game day... More
