The hotel has clearly gone through a remodel within the past year. The rooms (at least mine) was shiny and new. Wood laminate floors, fancy sink, wonderful TV. I travel for work, so I am limited to the rooms I can chose (in this case I had to get a double w/o microwave or mini fridge). The staff was very... More

We were passing through and stayed here on our way to Atlanta and choose it because of the reviews. The price was not as cheap as what people were saying (felt a bit jipped). The hotel was very nice, clean and quiet. Nothing too spectacular or anything to write home about. Would have made a world of difference if they... More

The room was very clean, updated, quiet and nice. Laminate hard woods, modern furniture etc...and they are pet friendly, so I got to bring my little Pomeranian with me. The hotel front desk attendee was polite. For $55 it is a GREAT deal! There isn't a continental breakfast, but there is a Waffle House right up the street I placed... More

Booked on Orbitz, $70. Great location, friendly front desk at check in, clean/new room, basic. For the rate I booked, no fridge/micro but there are rooms with them at additional cost. Soap and shampoo provided. If u want a clean, basic room, book. Nice wooden floors. Shop around for prices, Red Roof site most expensive.

We had never stayed at the Red Roof Plus in Gainesville and wanted to give it a try. To my surprise, it exceeded my expectations! My children and I loved the accommodations and are looking forward to staying there again later this year. We loved the fact that the rooms are tiled and not carpeted! Oh, yeah, the price was...

We chose this hotel based on other TripAdvisor reviews. The staff is friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Our king bed room had a microwave and small refrigerator, along with a nice size work surface for the computer. We especially liked having plug outlets on the lamps, rather than having to crawl around behind the bed as at... More

Booked this last minute (according to trip advisor it was a decent hotel and very low priced). We driving and needed a quick overnight on the close to the highway and other amenities. We were pleasantly surprised that it was clean and quiet. There are numerous hotels in the area, a publix and plenty of restaurants. The complimentary breakfast was... More

I had a family emergency and had to drive up to Gainesville. Most of the hotels were booked or overpriced. This place was nice and affordable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and the property is well kept. If I am ever an the area again the red roof inn would be my first choice.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! I frequently stay in Gainesville and have been searching for an affordable (starving student, here!) but clean hotel. On one trip I stayed at the Extended Stay (same price category) and was completely underwhelmed. I thought I was going to have to suck it up and pay more to get a nice... More
