“My trip to Red Roof Inn Gainesville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

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.

Room Tip: I like the higher level rooms.

Red roof Gainesville is a no frills property. Although there is no continental breakfast, fridge or coffee maker in standard room, the price was right and served me well for a quick visit. Room was basic, but spotlessly clean and I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night during a trip to the Florida Keys and had a nice stay. The rooms were the best part. As someone who used to work for Marriott, I have very high standards when it comes to being clean and except for a stain in the toilet my room passed with high marks. Bed was very comfortable and no noise. Water pressure was good as well. My only minor complaint was when I went down for coffee and the Front Desk Clerk and Maintanence man were talking, looked at me but did not say a word. At Marriott, we were trained to acknowledge and speak to Guests within 5 feet us.

Overall great stay and I would definately come back here again.

Visited my son at UF for the weekend. Perfectly located just off 75. Great value compared to other properties. Great property, immaculate rooms. I will return to this property. Would be even happier if there was in-room coffee, but not a deal breaker!

I had to take a trip from Tallahassee to Gainesville for a procedure at Shands Hospital and needed to be there the night prior. Since it was short notice, I needed to take my pet and child. I loved the new renovations b/c it was nice to have a place that was as allergy free as possible. My husband & daughter have asthma and my dog has allergies so the non-smoking rooms and hardwood floors were great. The room looked just like the picture online. The also had free WIFI which my daughter loved. My husband loved the flat screen TV. It was less than $70 and well woth my money. Location was great! The only negative was that I was up all night prepairing for my procedure and heard someone vacuuming at 5am.

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.
