“Nice place to rest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

The staff was friendly (Illa was very helpful),clean room, clean pool, easy to book online, and lots of places to eat near the hotel. We had a small dog with us and they welcomed pets. Great value for what we paid. We haves stayed at several other hotels at this exit on our way to Orlando over the past few years. This was one of the best experiences.

Room Tip: We booked using Priceline and when we arrived all we had to do was get the key. Very easy!

This was a quick overnight stay with my little dog on the way home from dropping off my daughter in NC for camp. Easy access off I75, friendly service at the front desk with a great recommendation for food delivery outside of the bland Dominoes, Pizza Hut and China One...Try Gondolier...I only had an individual pizza, but it was delicious...and the delivery was quick and friendly...

The room, including the bathroom and shower, was clean and linens smelled fresh. Exterior was also neat and clean. WiFi was quick and easy, too.

For the price, and also being pet-friendly, this will be my regular stop on my way home every year from now on!

Very accessible from I-75 in Lake City, FL. Lots of good places in the area to eat. Very friendly staff like ILLA & Ray and and we enjoyed a wonderful continental breakfast before leaving for an overnight stay in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Definitely a great place to stay overnight while traveling.

This hotel is located directly off of I-75. You will find a very friendly staff. Several times the staff (Hazel) went above and beyond to make our stay great! The rooms are slightly outdated- but who cares!? The low rate and friendly service makes up for it! The pool was clean. The grounds were well kept. Two thumbs up for this hotel.

Picked up one of those hotel savings book at a rest stop. Never expecting it to amount to anything. I found a diamond in the rough when I came to the Red Roof Inn. I was pleasantly surprised. I had a clean & comfortable stay. The front desk managers were very helpful & accommodating. I used the coupon & saved in my wallet as well. Oh by the way the do gave coffee & continental breakfast too. Very pet friendly too!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Quiet rooms even though it is close to the highway

My husband is sort of a penny pincher on the road, so he agreed to give this Red Roof a try.
And it was a nice place! I called ahead when we were a couple of hours away and had a great conversation with the toll-free booking agent. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was nice and the towels were plentiful and soft.
The breakfast buffet was just OK. Coffee and a roll is enough to get you started on the road.
We would stay here again!

Room Tip: We had an upstairs room and it was nice and quiet!
