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

We recently stayed at this hotel for two days while a friend was a patient at the University of Florida Shands Hospital. Conveniently located and quite a few good restaurants near by. Hotel room was spacious, clean and quiet. Would definitely stay there again.

Stopped at this hotel late after driving long distance from vacation. Hotel was easy to find, affordable, clean and quiet. The hotel had a mini fridge and microwave in the room. Everything else was average but acceptable for the price. Bed was comfortable enough. Would stay again if staying somewhere in this price range.

This was just a one-night stop over but what a pleasant one. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the room was spacious, clean and well appointed, and the breakfast was very good. I would be glad to stay here more than overnight if I was visiting Gainesville for a few days.

We were in Gainesville for the weekend looking for property and we wanted a convenient location near I-75. After reading the excellent reviews, we decided to book. Glad we did!. I am very picky, but I found the rooms clean, the staff amazing (noteably Rae Ann at the front desk was so sweet and friendly I had to make mention... More

Didn't have the highest expectations, but the staff was great and the rooms were decent. Bathrooms (which I am particular about) were in good condition. It was a game weekend and we paid top dollar but the hotel offered free shuttle to the game. Also, breakfast was the usual fare for this level hotel, but greatly enhanced by the kitchen... More

We were in Gainesville because my husband was having surgery. This hotel in not being maintained. Both my sister and I have breathing problems. We had to walk through the smoke from the housekeeping staff sitting in front of the hotel. The hotel bathroom tub was not clean nor the desk chair that had a "dried" white substance on it.... More
