My cousin and I stayed at the Red Roof Inn for two weeks in Gainesville and found our room clean, spacious and comfortable. We had the impression the rooms had recently been remodeled. The staff is unfailingly friendly to guests, especially Alex, who was on the front desk. He was always pleasant, courteous and very helpful. I wasn't wild about... More

We stayed here for a Gator football game. It is a very basic hotel. No frills. Very clean. Fresh smelling, wood/laminate floors in room. Rooms are small, beds were small. It is a pet friendly hotel and a dog barked from about 8 am until about 7 pm. Front desk staff apparently couldn't do anything about it, even though many... More

We came into the Red Roof Plus in Gainesville for a Gators football game. Our arrival time was after midnight. James was on the front desk. He was awesome. Our room was clean. I would recommend this hotel anytime.

I have had the opportunity to use the Red Roof Inn in Gainesville FL again during the Thanksgiving weekend. This location continues to exceed expectations, offer superior service, and keep the rates low for travelers who may not be able to afford this high quality lodging. I am always impressed with the manager of this location. Her staff is just... More

I usually cringe when my husband tells me he has checked reviews and I also had a feeling that Red Roof Inns had gone downhill. Not this one. This was not just old and cleaned up. It was old and made new. I really felt comfortable. The price was reasonable compared to the other places we stayed on our trip.... More

This is one of the few places that I've stayed in the doesn't charge a pet fee. All the rooms are smoke free, so those with pets aren't put in a smelly smoker's room. Also there are a lot of grassy areas and doggy bags were always available. They've remodeled and my room was very clean and felt fresh. The... More

We needed a place to stay overnight on a trip from Destin, FL to Miami Beach. Gainesville is about half way, and based on reviews and prices this seemed like a good choice. We booked two rooms, and my adult son's non-smoking room smelled strongly of smoke. He asked to be moved and they complied immediately. The place was clean,... More
