We recently stayed here in Gainesville after reading the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. As suggested I asked for a room away from the traffic noise. The rooms were clean, attractive and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed for a week and the staff could not have been more helpful, even suggesting places to go and things to do.... More

This is the first time I've used TripAdvisor to look for a nearby hotel and book the reservation from my phone... Easy peasy!! So glad I downloaded the app!! Red Roof+ appeared in the listing and the rate was reasonable. Clerk was friendly - the room was clean and most importantly the A/C worked!! If I weren't so tired I'd... More

Stayed here with co workers for training and was impressed with staff and property. Our room was clean, staff was nice and we really liked the pool. The breakfast was also really good and we were close to several restaurants.

This is a great place to stay when you are in the Gainsville area. I have had poor experiences at most of the other hotels in this area and was pleasantly surprised by our stay last week. I have no complaints. A small breakfast and computer room would have put this place well over the top and I would have... More

Stayed here for UF tour for two nights. Check-in was easy. I agree with other posts, the "safe charge" must be eliminated. Stayed in rm.#111, near the desk, soda machine, ice machine & pool, & was still nice and quiet. We saw lots of dogs through the two days, & only heard a dog bark once as we took the... More

We traveled to Gainsville for our neice's college graduation last weekend with our two children and our 10 pound dog. The hotel appears nicely maintained and the staff is friendly. The problem is that the hotel is infested with fleas. They were jumping on us in our room and out by the pool. Our dog has never had a flea... More

We stayed here for 1 night while traveling because it seemed to be the best value for a pet friendly hotel. It turned out to be a very nice place to stay.

For the price paid (about $65 / night) this is a great value for Gainesville. Hotel is comparable to all the others in town including the Marriotts, Hiltons etc but at almost $50 cheaper per night. The only thing you don't get is a mediocre free breakfast. Hotel was very clean, parking easy and staff friendly. I was granted a... More
