We pulled in at 3 am. The young man behind the desk was very pleasant and helpful. The room was a two room suite (exactly what I needed), very clean, very roomy, and appeared to have been recently renovated. My first, but certainly not last, at Red Roof. All in all, an extremely nice surprise!

Excellent pet friendly hotel. The rooms were very clean and modern. Walking distance to near by restaurants. The only downside is the 1 dog policy. I hope you guys reconsider and make it 2. Aside from that, you guys have an excellent hotel, and are now our #1 place to stay for road trips.

The Red Roof Plus in Gainesville, Florida is a nice surprise. We are traveling with our very senior dog and needed a place to stay for the night. The room has wood floors (no carpeting) which is perfect for senior dogs. We have a refrigerator with a snack box that was filled with water, orange juice, and granola. The room... More

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful staff. I was pleased they have special rates for folks with appts at Shands, surprised that those rooms specifically don't have microwaves and fridge since those visiting for medical issues may have more need for heat and cold than average travelers ... storage of medicine, heating of special foods or compresses. But ... still a great hotel... More

Clean rooms, 100% smoke free, we had a Premium King and a Double Queen. Beds were comfortable. Didn't care for the air freshener inside the a/c unit since I'm sensitive to it. We had plenty of towels and hot water. Kids swam for a few hours in the clean pool. Ice machines. Free coffee and juice in lobby. Courteous staff.... More

We stayed one night at this Red Roof Inn Plus for graduation weekend. Staff was courteous, room and bathroom were clean, localization is good (close to restaurants and I-75). The hotel has been renovated and it looks nice, has new furniture, and it was good nice for a quite night of sleep.

We found this "Suite" quiet retreat on Trip Advisor while googling around for reasonably-priced, pet-friendly accomodations near a business conference in Gainesville, Florida. When we walked into this Smoke-free King Suite on the fourth floor, we were wowed by a spotless, light-filled, spacious two rooms with kitchenette and bath. Along with the comfy bed and furnishings were two flat screen... More
