Had to visit the hospital for tests for my wife, and had our 21 month old granddaughter with us. We planned on a one night stay, but due to some test results we had to stay over for another day of further tests. The staff was very accommodating, understanding and helpful. We heard no interstate noise, nor any traffic noise.... More

Great stay, especially for the price. Very nice and clean room. Nothing spectacular about breakfast foods but sufficient for the usual hotel free breakfast. Breakfast attendant and all the rest of the staff were very friendly. Definitely a great place to stay.

The room itself was comfortable and mostly quiet. What impressed me the most was the attentiveness of the staff. Our room carpet had just been shampooed; maintenance guy stopped by several times just to be sure the carpet was dry at met with our approval. The young man who serviced the breakfast was so kind and helpful, even making waffles... More

In Gainesville to go to Shands...one night with my wife...friendly, competent front desk clerk...very accommodating...funky smell in the front lobby and breakfast room. Breakfast room is quite tight...basics for breakfast...not open, airy and as accommodating as say a Hampton Inn. Cramped. Stayed in second floor. Carpet there seemed to be dirty. Seems many blue color workers stay there...maybe muddy shoes... More

Check in was quick and cookies were just coming out of the oven. Really can't start a better way. They hand you a paper with the general managers phone number at check-in to call if you need to. Not bad. Wherever you went in the hotel a staff member asked if all was good. I asked about towels around the... More

Very clean hotel. The staff was polite and pleasant. Fresh popcorn and cookies in the afternoon. Our room was clean, no smells, bathtub/ shower was clean, everything electrical worked and fully stocked with items (coffee, soaps, towels). I have no complaints at all with this hotel. Would recommend.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn for two days after a cruise and for a family event. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The Staff was nice and friendly. Breakfast was the typical Breakfast food however after cruising it did not impress none of us. My niece loved the cookies and popcorn in the evening. I would recommend this... More

For the second year in a row, we have stayed at the Sleep Inn for one night on our drive down to southern Florida. The online rate was very reasonable for everything that we received (clean room, popcorn and cookies at night, and a very complete hot breakfast with eggs, biscuits & gravy, sausage and Canadian bacon, plus all the...

The wife and I have stayed here before. We come back because they are very clean, typical breakfast, with eggs, meat, waffles, cereal, gravy n biscuits, awesome fresh fruit, yogurts, bagels, etc. The bed was very hard for me, because I'm use to a sleep number bed, so I didn't sleep well.The wife had no problem with the bed.
