“Will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

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 the hotel, I realized I'd set my cell phone down as I was leaving my room. I called the front desk more than a bit nervous and mad at myself. Not only did Crystal send someone immediately to my room, she kept me on the line during the search. When the phone was found, she got me to describe and asked that I bring my ID with me when I picked it -- something I was incredibly grateful for! Thank you! I'll be back!

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.

We have stayed a few times here this summer and have been very happy. The manager Euihee goes out of her way to help the guests. The rest of the staff is great also! Very impressed with remodel. Very nice and clean. We stay there when we go to Shands. Cleanliness is extremely important to my husbands health, and this hotel is clean. Love the hardwood floors. Comfortable beds and pillows! Will stay there each time we go to Shands!

My family and I stay here several times a year for activities with the Florida Gators. I love the way you can put your requests on your profile and the staff always goes out of their way to fulfill them. What a surprise when we opened the room door to see a completely renovated enterior. There are wooden laminated floors throughout the room allowing the cleaning staff to clean better. The new, updated bathroom and sink were a great touch. We will definately be back!

Room Tip: I always choose the upper floors away from the elevatos and vending areas.

We stayed at this motel for one night. It is a nice motel with clean rooms. I like the new wood floors. The only thing I would have liked is queen beds instead of double, maybe a hair dryer and an ironing board. We needed to iron a UF graduation gown cause it was extremely wrinkled. Overall, very nice clean comfortable motel.

Red Roof was a great wee kend stay. The pool was about to close and I asked could it stay open a little longer? Front desk said YES! Great answer! What wouldve topped it off if they had micro/fridge in our rooms. Again front dest let us use their employee microwave. Great job!!
