“Excellent One-Night Stay”
Reviewed May 10, 2009

Housekeeping was superb. Very friendly staff. Very clean. Television news was a bit loud for breakfast but the attendant cheerfully turned it down when we asked. We may stay again on our trip back north in a couple of weeks. They had wired (and wireless) Internet, which we prefer. Good job Sleep Inn Gainesville.

While this is not a fancy hotel it is clean and well located. It is very easy to reach from the interstate and is situated in an area of nice hotels, near to many restaurants and shopping areas. It is also about 15 minutes from UF. There is a McDonalds, Burger King and gas station within a block which was a nice plus. My daughter and I were there to visit UF. We stayed one night and ate the free breakfast the next morning. The breakfast offered a nice selection of breads, cereals, eggs and waffles. They also had juice, milk ,coffee and teas and hot choclates. The staff was friendly and welcoming. With out AAA discount our nightly rate was $89 which was a good value for the area. I am very picky about hotels and usually stay in Hampton Inn but tried this because of the reviews on this site. For the savings, I would not hesitate to stay here again and probably will.

A friend and I booked here 2 nights while I underwent surgery at Shands Hospital. Room was very clean and well-equipped with microwave, refrig and LCD TV. Mattresses were firm and linens fine. Rates were reasonable, about $72 including taxes. The big problem was when I phoned from the hospital to the front desk and tried to leave a message for my friend on the outcome of the surgery, which went 2 hours longer than scheduled. A woman told me no voice mail was available and it was impossible for her to take a message or even a call-back number. So my friend was left without information for 2-3 hours until he went to the hospital and finally located me in a recovery room. One other minor problem was a smoke-alarm test when we first arrived, subjecting us and everyone else in the hotel to piercing high-pitched blasts every 5 minutes for about 2 hours.

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.
