This was our first stop on a long road trip. The hotel was exactly what we needed - a place to sleep for a fair price. This is not a five star resort, nor does it claim to be. It is located right off the highway. It's also conveniently close to several restaurants and gas stations. The hotel does not...

I loved this place but it would have been better if they had a small frig and microwave in the rooms. There is a community microwave but Im just saying.

The Red Roof Plus in Gainesville is immediately off the Archer Rd exit of I-75. The location is great for access food options and proximity to the University. The service from the counter staff was great and the room was well appointed. The main issue we had was that the lights come into the room and glow around the room...
