Stayed at the Red Roof twice in March 2012 to take my dog for treatment at the Univ. of FL Veteranarian School. My dog, a Golden Retriever, presented no problem for the staff and we were both equally welcome by a most efficient staff. The room (they gave me the same one on my return trip) was clean, quiet pleasant.... More

We were driving to Disney and weren't sure how far we'd make it, so we hadn't made hotel reservations for the night. We arrived in Gainesville, FL around 9 pm, and decided to call it a night. It was a Saturday night AND the beginning of Spring Break. After checking with FIVE other hotels that were booked up, we were... More

Booked a two-room suite, to use the term loosely. Clean, and comfortable, but showing signs of age. Only "suite" I've been in that has two very old clunky TV's. Poor picture and no HD. King bed was comfortable. Staff very friendly.. Forgot they do not provide morning food, other than coffee. Micro fridge, small nuker, and ridiculous Hot Shot coffee... More

We have stayed at this location 3 times. As members of Red Roof's rewards program, we have stayed at many Red Roof locations in several states, and found this to be one of the best. Each time we stayed we found the room to be clean, comfortable and well appointed. Location is right off of I-75 and within walking distance... More

I booked with this hotel because I was late to make reservations and this was the only hotel available and the reviews were not that bad. The room smelled old, the bathroom dirty and the sofabed was the most uncomfortable of all I have used. It looked old. Not a pleasant stay.

If you're just looking for a cheap place to crash, this will work. Don't expect much from the staff. I was told to go get extra towels myself.
