Highly recommend this Red Roof Plus, Gainesville. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful, the hotel is clean and near everything including Shands Hospital. They are pet friendly, which was a big help since we had to come up from West Palm quickly, and had to take the dog with us. What a wonderful place to stay. This... More

This was our first stop on a long road trip. The hotel was exactly what we needed - a place to sleep for a fair price. This is not a five star resort, nor does it claim to be. It is located right off the highway. It's also conveniently close to several restaurants and gas stations. The hotel does not... More

I loved this place but it would have been better if they had a small frig and microwave in the rooms. There is a community microwave but Im just saying. The fact that they allow pets is really plus because I couldn't tell a pet was in my room but the next morning I saw several people walking their dogs.... More

From checking me in early......to giving me a late check out the next day....everything about this hotel stay was a 10. I had stayed in Gainesville at a Howard Johnson the week before and was VERY disappointed. This Red Roof was a great room at a great price. Everything seems new and clean.

The Red Roof Plus in Gainesville is immediately off the Archer Rd exit of I-75. The location is great for access food options and proximity to the University. The service from the counter staff was great and the room was well appointed. The main issue we had was that the lights come into the room and glow around the room... More

Stayed here five nights. Got the premium room upgrade which includes 36 channels and overall I was very pleased with the room and the amenities. Had to pay full price because there was special events at the University but still is a very good value for money. Also it has a nice shower. The pluses, the bed was comfortable (upgraded... More

I have stayed at this hotel 6 times in the last year and just when I think it can't get better it does. The rates are unbelievably low, the staff is 5 star, the hotel is ALWAYS clean, and you can bring your pet for no additional fees or deposit.
