I called to get directions, The desk clerk was so pleasant and gave them to me. I arrived tired, sleepy, and hungry. After check-in I asked if they had any fruit. After I arrived at my room there was a knock. At the door stood Candace with a platter of apples and oranges. I got a call from Ashley at... More

We were traveling through Gainesville and booked a room with Sleep Inn & Suites on a whim ... literally picked them out of a hotel coupon book ... what a great surprise they turned out to be! The staff was welcoming and amazingly helpful, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and gracious in size and space, and the free... More

This hotel was in a great location. It was a clean hotel with well maintained rooms and a friendly staff that offered prompted service. Would stay here again. So if you are very picky about where you stay; this property is a 10 on a scale from 1-10.

I never write reviews. In fact, this is my first one ever. After almost 36 hours of driving, it was 3AM in FL and we needed to shower & sleep. After looking at all the hotel reviews in lake city, we knew we couldn't stay there. Once we got into Gainesville, we called 3 hotels before we decided on this... More

I've stayed here twice in the past couple of months to visit my son at UF. This hotel is always very clean. The staff is very friendly as well. If you are looking for a value, this hotel is perfect. I will stay here again next time I visit Gainesville.

The hotel is super clean, the staff is always friendly and helpful, and the location... More

Front desk lady gave me a wonderful deal for the night for a king size, non smoking room. The bed was one that sent you straight to dream land. It was a clean room. Shower was amazing. It had a fridge, microwave and a little kuerig coffee pot. I would stay here again!

I love Sleep Inn and Suites, Like this one they are always clean and friendly and usually quite. Whenever I travel I always stay at Sleep Inn, unless there is not one near by. This Hotel is at a great location, easy access to the Oaks Mall, Walmart and very great Restaurants.

Always enjoy my stay at the Sleep Inn in Gainesville. The rooms are always clean, the staff goes above and beyond, and the breakfast is amazing....(And its included!) Bruce, one of the employees there, is always "On Point" and seems to be at work 24/7. He and his fellow employees always go above and beyond to make my stay perfect!... More
