I rate this property as 3 stars in absolute terms, and 4 stars taking into account the low price. The towels get 1 star (thin and rough), so bring your own unless you want a major exfoliation. Check in was quick, and the staff was friendly and informative. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant very close by if you are... More

A Positive to me was room had vinyl "wood" flooring so in my mind easier to keep clean. A carpet is around the bed area only. Coffee ok in room but better downstairs. No breakfast but no big...

They only have coffee, no breakfast. By the time you add the amount for breakfast in a restaurant, it costs what a better quality hotel will cost. We were disappointed by the smell - they had just cleaned the carpets and the place smelled powerfully of citrus. The beds we're not comfortable as we other hotels. The pool was nice... More

We stayed here 4 days for a wedding. Facilities are quite limited so it's OK for a short stay. Rooms are clean with good bathroom facilities, beds are decent. Some noise heard in hallways. A few minor things I felt could make our stay better - a box of facial tissues (they only give you a pack of tissues which... More

We stayed here just for the night while traveling through to South Carolina. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was clean and worked for the evening. I forgot to check for breakfast so was a little disappointed when there wasn't one the next morning but that was my fault. Other than that the place is very comfortable, clean... More

Clean, Minutes off I-75, Lots of restaurants and services nearby. Customer service at the un-fancy Tallahassee Red Roof (Clarence goes way over and above to care for his customers). Customer service at the fancier Gainesville Red Roof can't touch Clarence.

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?

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.
