“Excellent staff, great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

I was impressed with the cleanliness and quality of the hotel, and the staff was very helpful, especially Marc, who went out of his way to make sure my family and I were taken care of. Great job Marc!!

Staying here was wonderful from beginning to end. the desk person couldn't have been more helpful or polite. The room was exceptionally clean. The bed was comfortable. Location was convenient to a number of restaurants and route 95. I will definitely stay here again.

We were seeking a suite for 2 adults, a son at UF - to rescue him from dorm for a day - and his younger brother. Quite frankly wanted the pricier hotel across the street but they were out of suites. So we booked at Sleep Inn & Suites not knowing what to expect. Well, it far exceeded our expectations: clean, quiet, comfortable, new rooms, full breakfast, courteous staff including the polite and engaging young man refilling the breakfast bar. We gave up the large King bed for our sons' comfort but found the sofa bed very comfortable as well; easy to fall asleep. No smells to bother my asthma, probably because no smoking/pets in all rooms (sorry, smokers/petowners). All around a great experience. If I had to complain about something... elevator made a strange clunk on its way down from 3rd floor but it's due for inspection in August. Highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing and comfortable stay!

The Hotel is usually a good deal and with the Trip advisor coupon it becomes and excellent deal.It has everything you need with free wifi and free breakfast a great location and plenty of parking. They also have free daily paper, coffee, cookies and popcorn. The staff is pleasant and the rooms are clean and quite. We have stayed there several times and will stay there again.

We were greeted immediately by RAE ANNE at the front desk. We told her about the horrible MOTEL 6 next door , and the awful night we had . WE only had a short time before the ball game and now need a room . She searched us a room , and invited us to breakfast. .We had just time to drop off our gear and head to the game, but the room was so nice we had to take time admire . We went to the breakfast room to grab a quick snack and again wre blown away. The buffet was GREAT ! so many selections , and clean, and we thank JAIME very much. The pool was great and a relief after the 90 degree game. We were greeted and spoken to by every member of staff and plan to return to SLEEP INN SUITES Gainesville all season .

This hotel is excellent. Is it a luxury hotel No ! Having said that, it's equal to any Holiday. or Hampton inns. The front desk people were excellent and went out of their way to be helpful. It's safe at it's location, Having said that this is Florida,and Gainesville, so college kids abound in the area as well as poverty areas right around the corner.
The Hotel itself was super clean, and quite with extras like fresh fruit, pop-corn, and good breakfast. The people who whine and gave bad ratings make no sense and the statements are false. If your looking for a clean, safe place with great service this is it. Again this is no resort- spa hotel, but is worthy of a 4 star reating.
