The room was clean and comfortable. Sleep Inn and Suites was a great place to relax after a long day at University of Florida. It was easy to find and minutes from University of Florida. I plan to stay there again.

This hotel is clean, run by a friendly staff and its where we stay whenever we come to Gainesville which is often because it is 5 minutes from Shands hospital and since my neurology doctors are there, we have made it "our" hotel for the past 7 years. It's a nice place and we can eat breakfast there before we... More

Overall a nice uneventful stay. Comfy and priced right with a tripadvisory special rate of $69. Jacuzzi switch was broken but once you have water in a tough to troubleshoot. Would stay again. Friendly people.

Free popcorn and cookies for weary travellers. Warning,... More

After a very unpleasant experience at a supposedly nice hotel the night before, my wife and I were delighted to find the Sleep Inn. Even though we had no reservation we were treated like they had been expecting us all day. Our room was perfect - clean, comfortable and inviting. Maybe just a smidge on the small side but worlds...

The Sleep Inn Gainesville was clean, comfortable, and convenient.. Everything that a weary traveler needs. The linens were high thread count and the bathroom was well appointed with a granite shower and counter-top. The staff was very friendly and helpful - just what we needed after a long day on the road!

We stayed here on our way to Ft. Lauderdale for a cruise. We arrived late and was greeted by the receptionist in a very friendly manner. Beds were comfortable and room was very clean. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

We frequently stay at Holiday Inn Express because they are very dependable and have a fabulous breakfast. But the HIX at this exit was over $120, and the Sleep Inn was around $80. So we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. Upon check-in there was popcorn, cookies and hot beverages in the lobby. The room (3rd... More
