Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was a decent size. The room was clean. The A/C is perpendicular to the bed so it doesn't blow directly on you. They have a full hot breakfast. There are many restaurants near by. Very good bed. I liked the price.

Nice place to stop on way to Florida while driving from Indiana. Clean rooms, nice staff, and good breakfast. Easy to find. Comfortable sleep. Shower was nice and water was hot. Air worked great. The pillows were tiny though.

Warm cookies, hot coffee, and buttery popcorn greeted us as we entered the hotel. Conveniently by the door was the luggage cart - so handy. The rooms were inside the building, so we felt immediately safer. And they were sparkling clean! Thanks for a great stay. Will definitely recommend.

I was booked at a nearby hotel for one night during Gator Nationals because Sleep Inn was full. When I arrived in town, the room wasn't ready so I called Sleep Inn and they had a cancellation, and could get me in to a room right away! Thanks Rae Ann at the front desk! My room was nice and quiet.... More

This property is right next to I-95 and close to everything in the Gainesville area. The place is clean and very well kept. The rooms are well appointed with a refer, micro, coffee maker, desk area, good internet, and a roomy bath. It was a quick overnight trip but I will put this on my list for future stops in... More

Simple hotel, with a very good rate. Clean and comfortable room, simple but good breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles, bagels, boiled eggs, danishes, juices and coffee. There is only one elevator, but since it is a small hotel, it is never crowded. Front desk staff is very friendly. Free parking and free wifi. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel was awesome! The people working was very friendly. At beginning of stay they mentioned that if they can't make something right to call owner and gave us his number. Every morning hotel has free breakfast, afternoon/evening they often free cookies and movie style popcorn. The room was very spacious, clean and shower was a walk in and not... More

The staff is top notch: courteous & friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. We travel quite a bit and in this price range we could not have asked for more. We live a little over an hour from Gainesville and attended a seminar. We will definitely return if given the opportunity.
