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...

This was our first time staying here. The ladies at the front desk were awesome! Made us feel right at home when we checked in. Our room was a nice size and very clean. The housekeepers were very considerate and helpful. I would recommend this hotel!

Free popcorn and cookies at check in! The hotel staff treated us like as we have known each other for a long time. Clean hotel, close to all Gainesville has to offer. They sure do love their Florida Gators.

We've stayed at many hotels and motels, and we prefer hotels due to the noise inherent at motels. Sleep Inn was a quiet retreat from traffic and the outside world. The staff were courteous, and it was situated just off of the main thoroughfare, so there was no road noise. It was serene the whole evening, which is important because...

Came to Gainesville to see the campus, meet with my daughter's advisor and look at apartments. Stayed here and was very pleased. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was great, especially Sharon Colter. My daughter loved the cookies they put out in the afternoons. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Due to a special event, the hotel we usually use was sold out the weekend we were in town and we chose this hotel due to good reviews on TA. So pleasantly surprised by the wonderful experience we had, (as well as the fair price considering it was a special event) that we will be making this our new "go...

I had a GREAT experience! The hotel was super clean, the staff was AMAZINGLY friendly and always helpful particularly Nicole at the desk. The breakfast good as well. The location was incredible. Everything we could have needed was within minutes away along the same stretch of road, including the freeway, Target, Walmart, shops, restuaraunts, and the University of Florida. A...

Staff is friendly and helpful. The room was a decent size. The room was clean. The A/C is perpendicular to the bed so it doesn't blow directly on you. They have a full hot breakfast. There are many restaurants near by. Very good bed. I liked the price.
