5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

We normally stay at Sleep Inn's because most of them have a no pet policy and we find the staff friendly, rooms nice appointed and clean. We were not disappointed in those areas at this Sleep Inn. In addition, this one offered fresh baked cookies and popcorn. We were told that breakfast is served from 6:30 am to 9:00. Because... More

We stayed last night. We were looking for a suite to stay for one night that included breakfast. Room was superb and the breakfast was just enough. The BEST part was that about two hours after we left we got a phone call that we had left behind a bathing suit and three coverups. How nice was that?!?!

While driving from Missouri to Orlando, we stopped in Gainesville for the night, looking for a value-priced room with good highway access. This is definitely a budget hotel, but a very nice one, with exceptional service and attention to detail. When you check in, you are given a flyer with the manager's cell phone number in case you have any... More

We have never stayed at a Sleep Inn before, but if they are all like this, we will be back. It is very clean and the staff was wonderful during our three day stay. Fresh popcorn every afternoon, fresh baked cookies every evening. The breakfast is good, the attendant who prepares it and cleans up works very hard to make... More

Very convenient to I-75, shops, restuarants and UF. Staff were very friendly and a great breakfast is included (cereals, juices, hot dishes, danish and waffles:-) and coffee available in foyer during the day. We stayed for 4 restfull nights in a ground floor room. Free on-site parking and cookies and popcorn avail in afternoons. We'll be back.

We stay here to break up our driving trips from south Florida back to Atlanta. The hotel is in a convenient location just off of I-75, has friendly staff and comfortable rooms. The wi-fi works pretty well in the rooms and the breakfast selection includes some hot and cold items to choose from. I especially like making fresh waffles. For... More
