“Stale”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Could not get my preferred hotel in Gainsville which is the Cabot Lodge. Red Roof did not have sufficient handicap spots, and the ones they had where not close to hotel entrance , no assistance with luggage and very few luggage carts . Not enough seating area to accommodate more than 10 people for the coffee provided, by the time I ran to get McDonalds for breakfast our party was fortunate to grab our 5 seats! Everyone else just hung around the very small long area, also with few seats

My trip to the Red Roof Inn in Gainesville exceeded expectations!!! It was worth every penny spent. For the price you can't ask for a better hotel for a brief stay. It was clean and comfortable. The staff was very polite. I usually don't write comments but I couldn't help but to leave one this time since I usually rely on others comments before making a hotel choice myself. I 100% recommend the Red Roof inn, If you need a few nights stay while traveling through the Gainesville area.

We were very pleased with our recent stay at the Red Roof Inn in Gainesville. Easy to find just off the highway, lots of shopping and dining choices nearby. Hotel had well lit parking area, bright and pleasant lobby. The woman who checked us in was cheerful, friendly and efficient. Our room was very simple but extremely clean, a bargain and just what we needed for a one night stay. Beds were comfortable, good pillows, good shower pressure, good lighting. Our room had in room safe available, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, alarm clock. No frills here but no surprises either. Would definitely stay here again.

What an outstanding Red Roof Inn. Everything was really great, it was very clean, looked like everything was new, wood floors in the rooms, new furniture, really comfortable beds with great pillows and comforters. The grounds were really nice too. Staff was nice, smiling and efficient. It was a great experience. And it was an exceptional value, and they take pets. I stayed at Red Roof Inn in Gainesville the night before bringing my dog for surgery at the University of Florida. It is right off the freeway and easy to find, close to the University, all non-smoking rooms, and they took my puppy with no issues. I could not have had a better experience, and I highly recommend the hotel to anyone.

Great Red Roof Inn. Renovated, updated rooms with comfortable bedding. Loved the design with a large desk (makes a nice dining area) and comfortable seating. Very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. If you don't use the safe, they will deduct the charge from your bill. The only improvement I would make would be to include a breakfast. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and a grocery. We would definitely stay here again.

I must say, this is the very nicest Red Roof property I've ever stayed in. The rooms have recently been renovated to include hardwood floors and a modern streamlined look. I agree with Nicole H. who mentioned that less is more... that is really true here. The flat panel TV had great sound and picture. And clean! This hotel is spotlessly clean. It's on par with the HI Express across the way that is charging a whole lot more.

The staff is super friendly and it feels like they want to be there and they enjoy the guest contact. Everyone smiles. I would definitely recommend this Red Roof to even my pickiest friends.

This is a great Red Roof Inn. The rooms have been completely updated and renovated with hardwood floors, upscale bedding and a great design the allows for a large desk area and lots of luggage space. There's even a safe in the room along with the usual coffee maker, fridge and microwave oven. Everything is spotless and the staff is friendly and helpful. In addition, you can walk to a McDonald's, Steak and Shake and a shopping center with a Target's and Publix. And if you have a dog, there's lots of space to walk them and there's no charge for pets. We will definitely be staying here again.
