“No frills at the Red Roof Inn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2005

This is definitely a no frills hotel. Good location - close to university,right off of I-75 and restaurants located close by. If you just need an evening of sleep this may be okay for you - just be prepared for a room with worn carpet, paint, flooring, etc. I must say that the customer service from the hotel clerks was very good!

My family and I stopped here on our way down to south Florida and also on our way back up. It is a really nice facility and we really enjoyed the outdoor heated pool! It would be nice if there was a continental breakfast, but there were plenty of restaurants in the area. The Shoney's seemed to have a nice breakfast bar that my son and hubby ate from and kids eat free with a paying adult:) The rooms were clean and were were really comfortable there. Both times, we received consistantly good service and will definitely book with them again when we head down to south Florida again:) We paid $39 a night, which was really reasonable, especially with the heated pool!!

Stayed one night on November 3, 2004, on the way to Disney. We had to change rooms because the air conitioner did not work in the first room. The room was a reasonable value for the $37 rate we got on the Red Roof website. It was not super clean, nor was it super dirty. All in all, pretty descent for the price.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2004

I stayed here 2 nights while visiting my mother.
Got a great rate from the Red Roof web site,
$29.95 on weekday and $32.95 on Friday night.
There are absolutely no frills here, the lobby coffee
is gastly, but... The rooms are large and very clean. The staff is helpful and friendly.
With the money you save you can get a very good cup of coffee elsewhere. For a basic clean room
at a good price I think this is the best place in
Gainesville.
