I stayed here for three nights with my daughter for a basketball tournamant. The hotel is in a good location, with a close proximity to major highways and many chain restaurants. The free breakfast was fine. The staff in charge of breakfast work hard and are very helpful. The manager Bruce was very friendly and helpful with directions or any... More

Clean, new-looking, big, quiet, nice, and other good things. Also, the fellow who ran breakfast was extremely polite and helpful. He asked you what you needed before you had to ask him. He genuinely seemed to enjoy himself!

I showed up late and left early the next morning. The rooms were comfy. The beds were fair but the bedding and pillows were lush and soft. The rooms are plain and cosmetic. You can't ask for anything more than a nice , clean and comfortable room so long as you know that this is not a four star hotel.

Our first trip to Gainesville and we were unsure where to stay, we had checked out reviews for the area before arriving in Gainesville and Sleep Inn & Suites looked a good bet. We received a warm welcome at reception and checking in was quick and easy. Our room was on the second floor but there is lift access so... More

This was a return trip for us to this motel.The first time(back in 2009),we enjoyed everything but the coffee.Now the motel has aged somewhat and the upkeep seems to have slipped.The carpet was something you wouldn't want to walk over in white socks.Walls were scuffed and dusting seemed to be a lost art. The coffee was a bit better,but only... More

Nice rooms, reasonable prices. As for breakfast, Demetric turns a "nice breakfast" into a "great breakfast." Demetric goes beyond making sure that there is plenty of food set out. He helps carry food to your table, helps young families with food prep, cleans up after you....all with a happy, friendly and polite demeanor!!

Very nice rooms and pleasant staff. Stayed here two nights for work. Great breakfast and the pool area looked beautiful. No complaints. I would recommend highly. Little restaurant attached with decent offerings.

I decided to stay at the Sleep Inn because of TA reviews and I'm glad I did. My wife had surgery at Shands hospital and the hotel gave a good discount. As stated in other reviews, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the beds comfortable, and breakfast was really good. All in all a good value.

I have stayed at many Sleep Inns up in the north and don't particularly care for them. This place does not even remotely remind me of any of them. It is much nicer and reminds me more of a Hampton or Fairfield Inn. but even just a bit nicer. It does not have that funky circle shower and small bathroom... More
