This location is right on I 75 lots of shopping, restaurants. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and a overall good experience. The suites have a couch so it was easy to have family in room and visit. Pool was small but sufficient for us wanting to relax. Oh they make popcorn and cookies in the afternoon for a quick... More

Being a former student at UF, I was pretty familiar with the go-to hotels in gville. I think the University Hilton is overpriced and didnt want to stay at the HIE. I found this hotel by researching on Tripadvisor & Rapidrewards and I am grateful for it as I would have never considered a choice hotel or would have discovered... More

The rooms are big and clean. Our king room came with a pull out sofa as well. Bathroom was nice with a walk-in shower. I had to leave before breakfast was served so no comment on that. Overall, a very solid stay, decent location close to many restaurants. I would stay here again.

It was pretty good but I felt like it needed some extra cleaning with a better cleaning solution (like some bleach & water) . Esp around the counter where the computer sits (was smeary & sticky looking) kind of afraid to put my arms on the counter. Popcorn machine needed cleaning too. Breakfast was good & staff was busy filling... More

Stayed here on our way to a cruise. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was good with lots of choices. The fellow in charge of breakfast went out of his way to keep everything stocked up. We will stay there again.

Stopped with our travel trailer to send the night. As we were leaving our truck broke down. Ended up staying 3 nights. Staff and manager were great. The motel, rooms and grounds were very clean. The breakfast attendant was exceptional. Would recommend this stop for anyone.

Had to come to Gainesville for my aunts memorial service, we chose this hotel based on ratings and price and was definitely not disappointed. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, when we told the front desk why we were there they allowed us to check out at 2pm instead of 11am because they knew we were going to be out... More

Stopped on our way to Orlando. Great Sleep Inn. Rooms are clean and well furnished. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well stocked and abundant. Attendant even offered to make waffles for us. That was a new first. Good locations with easy access.

My husband & stayed on a Friday night at this hotel. The room was very nice, clean, no complaints. However, being a light sleeper, the ac/heat unit was loud. Big shower. Didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but at Cracker Barrel next door. We arrived home that night, & there was a message from the hotel that I had left... More
