This place is not what you'd purposely choose, but Gainesville was starting to book up as people came in for the "Gator Nationals" drag races. We took it because it was what was available. Extremely average, with limited amenities. No breakfast. As in nothing but coffee. Rooms ok, but I-75 is directly behind, so traffic noise is constant in rooms...

My husband and I frequent this hotel when visiting UF for work. I have never seen the hotel or rooms so dirty. The vacuum must be broken because it didn't look like the carpets had been vacuumed in a week. Room 431 had a strong urine smell on/near the wall side of the bed. We moved to the other bed...

My boyfriend and I were driving to south Florida for vacation and needed a hotel last minute to spend the night as we were passing through Gainesville. I had never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before and never will again after this experience. The rooms look like an old college dorm with cheap furniture, mattresses and linens. Upon check...

Another A+ Red Roof Property. Multi-story comparable to Hampton and Holiday Inn Express. Good pool. On a quiet crescent. Very close to massive new shopping area. Lots of restaurants nearby. A bit tough to find from I-75 - but worth the effort.

This was a nice hotel that sat on a quiet side street off of busy Archer Road. The lobby was small and the staff was friendly and courteous. I got a superior king room which was very nice and clean and bright. No wall to wall carpet, just hardwood -like floors in a light blond color. There was a carpet...

We stayed several times at this location. It appears to have been remodeled recently. The staff was most friendly and helpful. Great accommodations for our little dog--at a really good price. Tile floor rather than carpet was great because of the pet friendly policy. We will definitely stay again.

My family and I always stay here when visiting Gainesville. The rooms are very clean, large and comfortable. The staff goes above and beyond to help in any way they can. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is there is only coffee downstairs no food of any kind. The location is close to everything. No complaints.
