We stayed at the Sleep Inn with our soccer team. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff was super accomodating, especially Whitney at the front desk. We will definitely return to the Sleep Inn and recommend it for other groups as well.

My wife and I stayed here on a trip from Toronto to South Florida based on reviews here. We were not disappointed. We had a nicely appointed King room with a comfortable bed, microwave, small fridge, flat screen TV, coffee maker, etc. It is close to the interstate amid a cluster of other chain hotels. A couple of restaurants (including a Shoney's) are within walking distance. One minor thing - the hotel could really do with a second elevator. Even though the sole elevator is brand new, it seems to operate at one speed: slow. Breakfast was decent. All in all - excellent accommodation and good value.

We just stayed at Sleep Inn & Suites while visiting our daughter at UF. They offer a parent discount, but even without it, the price is an excellent value. The hotel looks brand new and is spotless! The beds are comfortable and the continental breakfast is comparable to others in the area. Before discovering this hotel, I was spending more money and getting less. I like it much better than Spring Hill Suites across the street.

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times due to appointments at Shands @ UF. Not only is this hotel is very clean & neat, they have adapted the "green" approach. The staff is extremely friendly and always helpful. Due to my health issues, I am unable to eat often, but the breakfast always looks amazing, and they also offer free cookies & coffee all day. The staff has always been generous in giving great suggestions on local eatieries and so forth. The beds are so comfortable, I hardly miss my own, and the air conditioner is temperature controlled which helps with the comfortability of the room. This hotel does fill up quickly on UF ball game weekends, but after staying here, you wouldn't question why.

Hotel is still new. The room,lobby, and breakfast room were nice and clean. Free contindental breakfast included make-them-yourself waffles, a variety of yogurt, cereals, juices, pastries, and fresh coffee. The staff was friendly & hospitable. They even baked fresh cookies for the front desk/lobby area. The beds were plenty comfortable, but the pillows were dreamy. They were exceptionally lofty and perfect to rest your tired head on. Plus, they give you extra. It is right off of Interstate 10 and Archer Road (which is an I-10 exit and a road that goes straight to UF, Shands, and the VA hospital. Also, it is close to almost every kind of restaurant,a Target, a WalMart, a Publix, and tons more. Great price for the area. I got an even better price by calling the front desk of that specific hotel and asking for the cheapest rate. Don't forget your discount membership cards (AAA, AARP, etc). From Pensacola, Florida
