We have stayed at this Sleep Inn on several occasions over the past three years, and found it to be clean and acceptably comfortable. This time was different. Not only was the only elevator broken the whole time (and we had a room on the 3rd floor!) - to be fair, they discounted our rate because of it - but... More

Great staff. Wonderful front desk clerk named Asia Emory. Great value for the price. Note: no password internet. Conveniently located near the interstate and hospitals. You will like the amenities pool and gym.

I wouldn't even give this place one star but it won't let me write a review without it. The smell in the lobby is disgusting, ashtray, but compared to our room it was pleasant. The elevator was out and we had to haul out goods to the top floor. No discount, just an "I'm sorry". Rooms are disgusting with mildew... More

Stayed here a few times now while travelling and always impressed with the cleanliness.. Always clean and the rates are always reasonable. Friendly staff too, and the breakfast was very good. I like the fact that they have plenty of towels, vending machines that all worked properly. A staff person was always available at the front counter....not always the case... More

The employees at the hotel were so friendly and you could tell that customer service was what they strived to give their guests. Ashley at the front desk tended to all of our needs. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very clean. The fresh baked cookies and newly made popcorn was an added treat. My family stayed for... More

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
