“Solid, large rooms. Would stay here again.”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The rooms are big and clean. Our king room came with a pull out sofa as well. Bathroom was nice with a walk-in shower. I had to leave before breakfast was served so no comment on that. Overall, a very solid stay, decent location close to many restaurants. I would stay here again.

It was pretty good but I felt like it needed some extra cleaning with a better cleaning solution (like some bleach & water) . Esp around the counter where the computer sits (was smeary & sticky looking) kind of afraid to put my arms on the counter. Popcorn machine needed cleaning too. Breakfast was good & staff was busy filling things but white bowls holding peanut butter, jelly, etc. do need to be washed with soap & water at times. I saw residue from things & a hair at the bottom which I emptied out . Staff was helpful.

Stayed here on our way to a cruise. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and bed comfortable. Breakfast was good with lots of choices. The fellow in charge of breakfast went out of his way to keep everything stocked up. We will stay there again.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with family

Stopped with our travel trailer to send the night. As we were leaving our truck broke down. Ended up staying 3 nights. Staff and manager were great. The motel, rooms and grounds were very clean. The breakfast attendant was exceptional. Would recommend this stop for anyone.

Had to come to Gainesville for my aunts memorial service, we chose this hotel based on ratings and price and was definitely not disappointed. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, when we told the front desk why we were there they allowed us to check out at 2pm instead of 11am because they knew we were going to be out late with family. Room was very nice and clean. I would definitely stay here again and I think it should be rated higher than it is. Probably the best hotel I've ever stayed at.

Stopped on our way to Orlando. Great Sleep Inn. Rooms are clean and well furnished. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was well stocked and abundant. Attendant even offered to make waffles for us. That was a new first. Good locations with easy access.
