Renovations are ongoing. I still stand by the fact that the staff, all staff is simply amazing! New Tip: Game day free shuttle from hotel is a huge plus, with very fast to and from game trips. The hotel offers free game tailgate food. Very pleased with service.

Our room was on the third floor overlooking the pool. Nice view. The room was very large and comfortable. Our beds were excellent for sleeping! Breakfast was good. Scrambled eggs,... More

I must say I was a bit leery of staying at this hotel. I am a Marriott Platinum Elite member & normally stay at Marriott brands, However all the Marriott hotels were sold out for the first Florida football game. I decided to stay here based on the Tripadvisor reviews and I must admit I was not disappointed. From the... More

Stayed at the country inn and suites last time I was in gainesville and was quite unimpressed, so I decided to try out sleep inn and suites...what a great decision. Rooms were better, the hotel was overall better. Actually, I am writing this as the super attentive employee is walking around making sure everyone has everything they need for the... More

I stay here regularly because it is clean, convenient and friendly . It's not of 4 or 5 star hotel, but when I am in Gainesville, I am at the hotel to sleep only and do not spend much time at the hotel. When I arrive each evening I am greeted by a smiling face at the check-in desk, i... More

We had wonderful accommodations during our visit at Sleep Inn and Suites. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The hotel had a wonderful free breakfast each morning of our stay. The location is conveniently located within close proximity to the University of Florida and Shands Hospital.

All was very good here. The bath vanity was long enough to accommodate all our cosmetics. The extra towel sets and bright lighting were appreciated in this large bathroom. The king bed was clean, comfortable, fresh. The room was sound proofed. The a/c was quiet and did its job well. The breakfast was well stocked and varied. The neighborhood is... More
