Checked in with zero issues, Alexis was very nice. A bell cart was accessible for our use. The room was easy to find, clean and looked brand new. One thing i wish the hotel had, were cots or rollaway beds. No fridge in the room but ice machine is in the lobby. Vending was on the floor. Air, sink, and... More

Nice hotel, very clean, courteous staff. However, no coffee pots in room and no breakfast-for the price I paid I would have appreciated those amenities. Also apparently very thin walls-a little noisy, but still ok.

I stayed at Red Roof for three days for a business trip. Red Roof was super convenient because it was within walking distance of the hotel my training was in (and less than half the cost of that hotel). It was clean and comfortable. Just a few minor things I was unhappy with -- the coffee was crappy (McDonald's is... More

I have not stayed in a Red Roof in since right after high school. That was when we didn't care about anything except road tripping somewhere new, for as cheaply as possible. I won't tell you how long ago that was but lets just say a long, long time! I was once again taking a road trip and needed a... More

After reading general reviews on the Red Roof chain, we were wary of the chain. However, we are Gainesville residents moving out of the area who needed a place to stay our last 3 nights in town...and most of the hotels were booked due to Gatornationals. I'd passed the Red Roof Inn hundreds of times and was always impressed with... More

We have not stayed at Red Roof Inns lately so this was a great surprise. Very modern with a new design, hardwood floors, upscale bedding - all you can ask for. Walking distance to McDonald's, Target, and a shopping center. This will definitely be our stop in Gainesville from now on.

I stayed at Red Roof Inn this past Saturday night. I was in town on business and just needed a place to stay for one night. The room was fairly clean (bathtub / shower could've used a little more scrubbing), it looked recently renovated with new sink, fixtures and laminate faux wood floors, which is so much better than carpet...

Booked this based on reviews after our preferred hotels no longer had availability. Room was fairly clean but smelled. We did report it, and could have moved to another room ;wish we had. Staff was friendly. Great selection of restaurants close by.

5th time staying at this hotel. I will always stay here when in Gainesville. Never had anything but a good time staying here. We also like how close the restaurants are to the hotel. We take our racecar to Gainesville track and this is the hotel we have all decided is the best value.
