I spent a weekend in October at the Red Roof Inn for a conference. I arrived late Friday night and was checked in with no issues. (It's right off of Exit 384/Archer Rd. in Gainesville). One of the main reasons I was attracted to booking at Red Roof Inn was that their rooms had been recently renovated. The room was... More

Stayed here on the first weekend that UF was back in session...obviously sold out. Still, staff was not stressed or rushed. Very welcoming. Nice new room but no functional items like a blow drier or an iron. Otherwise a nice place. Newly redecorated with laminate flooring (ya..no gross carpets!) and modern furniture. Front desk staff was AMAZING...very nice and accommodating...just... More

Newly remodeled, I'd opt to stay here vs. Marriott or other high-end hotel. The room is VERY modern with updated furnishings, bed, bedding, TV, data ports, etc. Best of all, room is VERY affordable as compared to other high-end hotels. I would highly recommend this hotel, especially any major event weekends at UF. GO GATORS!

Went to Gainseville for treatment and I was very impressed with this newly remodeled hotel. I am somewhat of a hotel snob and this place was very clean and just wonderful service. It was plain and simple. There was nothing like breakfast but they did have fresh coffee at all times in the lobby. When your budget is tight this... More

My husband and I stayed here for a Gator football game and were quite pleased. The hotel is very clean which is perhaps my most important requirement. In addition, it is convenient to campus and the stadium, the staff is very friendly and accomodating, and although we didn't bring our dog, it is pet friendly. However, the A/C in our... More

Loved that this hotel didn't require a two-night stay on a game weekend! I came into town for business but couldn't stay for the game -- so before I'd even arrived I'd felt like I'd won. Then we got there! Beautiful, clean room with sleek decor, friendly staff ready to accommodate. More telling about trusting your stay here: after leaving... More

The hotel is just about finished with the remodeling, but the rooms are finished and are great. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 is the room i last stayed in had a very loud A/C for me. A prior stay I had a room with a quiet A/C.
