Red Roof saved the day!!!! After the disaster of the other hotel that we left, the staff here was AMAZING!!! The room was nice, clean, and modern.

We pulled in at 3 am. The young man behind the desk was very pleasant and helpful. The room was a two room suite (exactly what I needed), very clean, very roomy, and appeared to have been recently renovated. My first, but certainly not last, at Red Roof. All in all, an extremely nice surprise!

Excellent pet friendly hotel. The rooms were very clean and modern. Walking distance to near by restaurants. The only downside is the 1 dog policy. I hope you guys reconsider and make it 2. Aside from that, you guys have an excellent hotel, and are now our #1 place to stay for road trips.

Beautiful hotel. Wonderful staff. I was pleased they have special rates for folks with appts at Shands, surprised that those rooms specifically don't have microwaves and fridge since those visiting for medical issues may have more need for heat and cold than average travelers ... storage of medicine, heating of special foods or compresses. But ... still a great hotel...

Clean rooms, 100% smoke free, we had a Premium King and a Double Queen. Beds were comfortable. Didn't care for the air freshener inside the a/c unit since I'm sensitive to it. We had plenty of towels and hot water. Kids swam for a few hours in the clean pool. Ice machines. Free coffee and juice in lobby. Courteous staff....
