We were late arrivals on April 17, 2015, and were welcomed by friendly staff. Cookies and popcorn were still available at 10PM even with a full hotel. The 3rd floor room was clean and comfortable. What surprised us was the breakfast area, it was spacious and the food and beverage choices were not bunched together so people could move around....

This is the second time we have stayed at this Sleep Inn due to my wife having a doctor appointment at UF. This is definitely one of our favorite hotels we have stayed. The facility is very clean, up to date and very comfortable. The staff including Rae Ann at the front desk and the breakfast bar staff are very...

Typical hotel, not to expensive but not budget pricing. The staff were wonderful. I was there with family because my mother had to be sent there for emergency surgery. It was a very stressful time and I went there unexpectedly. Rae Ann the manager was so helpful and lowered my anxiety level as she helped to find rooms for incoming...

Spent the night here with a friend from out of town. Everything was very clean and the bed linens crisp white and clean. There was a mini fridge in the room which was nice to have. My friend got a great nights sleep in her bed. I didn't sleep as well in mine. Mattress was a little firm for me...

The staff is friendly and very helpful. Been staying there for over a year because of my husband's surgeries. Would not stay anywhere else! Would love to go down just to relax but can't do that yet. Rae Ann is an excellent front desk manager.

Nicole from the front desk was very nice and accommodating. The hotel was clean and pleasant with free popcorn and cookies throughout the day. I traveled with my soccer team so we fit four people to each room. The pullout couch was uncomfortable so I would recommend just booking another room instead. Would stay here again.

Very clean. Spent one night before going to Miami. Quiet next to elevator. Desk clerks very courteous. Left pillow & they bagged it, kept it until we stopped on way home. Housekeeping had returned it to front desk--expensive Tempurpedic pillow. Honesty admirable. Would stay there again.

Nothing spectacular. Clean, quite and relatively comfortable. Not my first choice in Gainesville but our usual favorites were booked. Hot breakfast was also average. Staff very friendly and polite. Good in a pinch; I'd recommend it.

What a nice surprise for a modestly priced hotel! The rooms were very nice and clean. They had extras like good quality tissue in the rooms as well as coffee, soap, lotion, etc. They served good coffee in the entry. They provided fresh popcorn in the evening and at 5 pm some great cookies. The breakfast was quite nice with...
