Ideal location, close to stores gas stations, restaurants, best buy, gar repairs attractions, and University of Florida close by. Went to a convert Box Skaggs on the Florida campus, only about 1 1/2 miles away, really really easy to get to, (concert was great too). staff really friendly and our pet was welcomed. Very quiet and clean

The hotel was nice and clean. Good location with ample parking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel didn't seem too busy or full but they managed to put a family with a screaming/crying baby in the room next to mine. Really? All those empty rooms and you've got to stack people in that closely? The walls may be... More

We stayed here on our way to Georgia and I was very pleased with our experience. Check in was quick and to the point. Our pet friendly room was clean and did not smell like animals or disinfectant. I loved that the room was cold and not musty or muggy. The room and bathrooms were clean and modern.

Was on way home from beach vacation. Stopped at Gainesville after driving through 3 hours of construction. Was thinking lets stay cheap. Was thinking this is going to be horrible was so happy to find out different. It was super clean. Beds and pillows comfortable. Shower pressure was great and gets burning hot. Had a nice size pool.

Excellent hotel. I was so surprised at the newly remodeled red roof, hardwood floors, flat screen Tvs, plush mattresses and excellent service. The room was about $70 and worth it. It was very clean and comfortable with coffee in the lobby 24 hrs a day. The one draw back was the clerk was a little snotty, prissy and seemed bothered... More

I travel a lot and have stayed at several hotels. This was a first time in a very long time that we stayed at a Red Roof Inn. There is no breakfast at this location. The hotel was nice and the staff was as well. Beds were below average and no breakfast was not popular either. Probably wouldn't stay here... More

Front desk was pleasant and speedy. Room was clean but window was above the air conditioners that sounded like a 747. Security light outside our window couldn't be shaded by the curtains so it felt as though the sun were up therefore my sleep was limited. Was informed on check-in to enjoy the complimentary breakfast the next morning which didn't... More

Traveling back home on !-75 we are always looking for a good place to spend the night and have dinner. This Red Roof Inn fit the bill. It is very convenient to I-75 and is in close proximity to many different types of restaurants. My only negative is that it does not serve breakfast. However, there is a McDonalds about... More

This hotel was remodeled 2 years ago and they are doing a good job at maintaining property. From the moment you enter the premises you get the feel that you are at a higher scale hotel. The staff immediately greeted us. (Sometimes the front desk looks good but the rooms do not match - not in this case). The first... More
