Our check-in was very quick with friendly and helpful staff. Room temp was comfortable & enjoyed complimentary popcorn in lobby. The location is extremely convenient to the highway, restaurants & stores. Room was clean although a little "care worn". Basic chain hotel breakfast. Good value for money.

Location was very convenient with many restaurant options nearby. Room and bed were quite comfortable. The breakfast offerings were varied and good. Service in the breakfast area was cheerful and efficient. I would recommend this place.

My wife and I stayed two nights with our gran daughter, touring the University and the Natural History" butterfly house. Very convenient, clean, and exceptionally friendly staff. I agree with other reviewers it is an excellent choice, made better by the pop corn and freshly made cookies, still warm from the oven! The breakfast was average but the man keeping... More

This was a very nice hotel. There were a couple of issues, but we were pleased overall. We had a king bed with a sofa sleeper for our son. The bed was ok, a little stiff, but ok. The sofa sleeper on the other hand was absolutely horrible. The mattress was wafer thin and did very little to cushion the... More

We were very happy with this inn. We received a warm welcome from Mike upon check-in. He had fresh baked cookies and popcorn popping in the lobby. Check-in was easy and all was correct. Our room was clean, the bedding was great, and nice toiletries provided in the bathroom. Our room had a jetted tub in one corner which did... More

We recently spent 2 nights at this Sleep Inn & Suites and I have to compliment the high level of guest services at every point of our stay! From the time we stepped into the hotel, we were truly treated as guests. From the gentleman tending to the lobby, to the front desk administrators to the breakfast attendants. I would... More

Great quality for an even better price! Staff was wonderful, helpful and allowed us an early check in on a busy day. The rooms were very clean with large bathrooms. Will definitely stay here again. Great find in Gainesville!

I stayed here for three nights in December 2013 and having found that to be a perfectly satisfactory experience I had no hesitation in going back there for another three nights in November 2014. The hotel is conveniently situated just off the interstate but with easy access into town. The rooms are a decent size, clean and comfortable. The complimentary... More
