I showed up late and left early the next morning. The rooms were comfy. The beds were fair but the bedding and pillows were lush and soft. The rooms are plain and cosmetic. You can't ask for anything more than a nice , clean and comfortable room so long as you know that this is not a four star hotel.

Our first trip to Gainesville and we were unsure where to stay, we had checked out reviews for the area before arriving in Gainesville and Sleep Inn & Suites looked a good bet.
We received a warm welcome at reception and checking in was quick and easy. Our room was on the second floor but there is lift access so no problem with bags. The room was very nice, clean, bed really comfy and amenities spot on. Unfortunately we didn't get a bathroom with tub but we got a walk in shower which was quite large and provided lots of hot water.
On our floor just down the hall there was a washing machine and dryer which was really useful for us, five days into our trip and we had stuff to get clean!!
Breakfast was great, lots to choose from and the food was very tasty.
A plus point for the Inn, they have certain times of the day when you can get free drinks(tea, coffee) and a great idea, a popcorn machine where you can grab a bucket and take fresh popcorn out with you or up to your room.
Computors were also available in a small room where you could get on FB or check your emails or even plan your days out.
All in all a really great stay here, we would definately choose this place if we ever got back to Gainesville.

This was a return trip for us to this motel.The first time(back in 2009),we enjoyed everything but the coffee.Now the motel has aged somewhat and the upkeep seems to have slipped.The carpet was something you wouldn't want to walk over in white socks.Walls were scuffed and dusting seemed to be a lost art.
The coffee was a bit better,but only one of the coffee containers had anything in it.The food was fair,but the trash cans were overflowing.Next time we'll go somewhere else.

Nice rooms, reasonable prices. As for breakfast, Demetric turns a "nice breakfast" into a "great breakfast." Demetric goes beyond making sure that there is plenty of food set out. He helps carry food to your table, helps young families with food prep, cleans up after you....all with a happy, friendly and polite demeanor!!

Very nice rooms and pleasant staff. Stayed here two nights for work. Great breakfast and the pool area looked beautiful. No complaints. I would recommend highly. Little restaurant attached with decent offerings.

I decided to stay at the Sleep Inn because of TA reviews and I'm glad I did. My wife had surgery at Shands hospital and the hotel gave a good discount. As stated in other reviews, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the beds comfortable, and breakfast was really good. All in all a good value.
