The person at check-in was friendly, efficient, knowledgable, and genuinely sincere about making sure our room was what we wanted and needed. All personnel we encountered were very friendly. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Will definitely stay at this location in the future.

After a long trip, I was greeted and with a bright and enthusiastic smile. The check-in process was swift and informative. The room was clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was hearty and well maintained. There are also plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area. I will definately stay here again on my next trip to Gainesville.

Sunday night, motel probably had a half dozen guests. Our suite room was clean and comfortable, nice bed and couch. Carpet appeared nearly new. Door deadbolt would not lock, door appeared to be sagging on hinges. Hard to lock and I think a solid push would have sprung it open.. we could hear other guests having trouble with their doors, multiple slammings. Toilet seat hinge broken which made it sit two inches off center. Bathroom door had big bash mark which crushed bottom corner.

Two computers in business center but one was broken.

Otherwise a nice, clean motel. Breakfast was good with waffles, sausage gravy biscuits, scrambled eggs (dry). This place was no Hampton Inn but room rate was $81, a good deal. There were several nice looking motels nearby including Hampton Inn and Super 8.

I would come back but I would ask to see the room first.

I have to admit, I am usually not very comfortable staying at hotels but this place was absolutely wonderful! You couldn't ask for better customer service from the staff - they were always friendly and truly seemed to enjoy their job. It has a great breakfast - hot and fresh. Obviously, this is a new hotel but the fact that it was CLEAN has definitely won me over!

From the moment you walk in the door to the breakfast the next morning. It was first class the whole way.
The guess service was fantastic. Help with finding great places to go around town and gave a very personal feel. The rooms were perfect clean and organized. The next morning we went down for breakfast and they had plenty of hot food and fresh breakfast items.
I would highly recommend to anyone who is going to Gainesville Fl.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Sleep Inn & Suites. The staff was very friendly. They even had a hot breakfast and it look like a new hotel. The rooms were very clean. I would recommend my friends and family to stay here.
