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.

We have stayed here a few times and have found it a nice place. It is clean and the staff are really nice. They also give a discount for those who have appointments at University of Florida Shands hospital.

From Check-in to Check-Out and all points in between, I recommend without reservation! The support staff is friendly, professional and they get 'er done. Pet friendly, dog areas are well maintained, Wi-Fi is fast, Pool is nice and near restaurants.

I mistakenly thought red roof inns were just basic accommodations. This location is top notch. Newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable. I also liked there were many restaurants and stores right in the area so we could walk everywhere

Great clean rooms, and very pet friendly. We loved it, and plan to come back. Beds were comfortable, and clean. Rooms were updated very nicely. Service staff very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend anyone stay under the Red Roof.

Our priority was to be able to bring our 15 lb poodle...and at no added cost was terrific. The staff was happy and helpful. The room was very clean. And the price was competitive with hotels in the area that were not as nice and charged extra for pets...or, didn't allow them.

We stayed one night as my daughter was doing a campus tour at University of Florida. Check-in was brief and efficient. Our room was clean but basic - beds, desk, TV, hairdryer, iron/board, soap/shampoo, and free wi-fi. There is a safe for $1.50 more per night. This hotel has Plus+ rooms that you can upgrade to for an additional fee....

We chose this hotel based on the four-star trip advisor rating. The front desk was not very helpful or welcoming. What a disappointment- the beds were floppy and the hair dryer did not work. There was no coffee maker or in room fridge. We won't stay at a Red Roof Inn again.

This hotel has recently been remodeled and is extremely clean. The room had wood laminate flooring and the beds were super comfortable. The staff is very nice and helpful. It is within walking distance from several restaurants, shops, and a grocery store.
