We did a last minute trip and stopped and stayed here. I have not stayed in a Red Roof Inn in a very long time. I was very surprised and very happy with our choice.

I left the hotel I was in to stay at Red Roof Inn. It was awesome, beautiful, and the staff was very respectful. The only downside is that it had no fridge in the room, but overall an amazing place to stay.

We travel up to Gainesville every few months, and we have stayed at numerous hotels, but not anymore. From now on out, this is going to be our "go to place". Clean, updated, friendly. We were not lacking anything. Could not ask for more. Thank You for making our stay so pleasant. Great location, just off the Interstate, with more... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously about 2 years ago, immediately after the renovation. I was glad to see the property had not been run down, it is still is good condition and the staff at this location was very welcoming and accommodating. Hotel was clean, water hot and bed comfortable. You need to remember that this chain has... More

This Hotel is up-to-date, clean, and operated by great people. They make you feel at home. I will return. At this good price you can stay in a nice room, AND have a good meal for less than the room rate at other hotels. They have AAA and Senior discounts.

I spent a couple of nights at this hotel while my daughter went to UF for preview. I found the best price through Red Roof online using the Florida resident discount (under $55/night). The mostly uncarpeted floors were great! My feet did not get dirty after walking around bare foot in the room. The staff was friendly and we were... More

Good price and location. The room was clean and a bit small which I expected. The staff were very friendly and nice to us. We had lots of family members in different rooms and they let us use the breakfast area for a take-out dinner one night. However, I am reserving one star because there was a very strange smell...

I had to stay in Gainesville while my dog was being treated at the UF Veterinary Hospital. They take pets at no extra charge and there is plenty of room to walk them as well as a poop bag dispenser and a receptacle to dispose of them. I wasn't sure how long I was staying and as long as I... More

Me and my husband stayed here when we were on our way from Ocala, FL back to SC. We found ourselves in Ocala, ready to head back home the next day, without a hotel reservation at 5pm. The fact that we were traveling with our two dogs complicated matters. Ocala is a smaller city with very limited pet friendly options.... More
