We have stayed at this hotel previously about 2 years ago, immediately after the renovation. I was glad to see the property had not been run down, it is still is good condition and the staff at this location was very welcoming and accommodating. Hotel was clean, water hot and bed comfortable. You need to remember that this chain has...

This Hotel is up-to-date, clean, and operated by great people. They make you feel at home. I will return. At this good price you can stay in a nice room, AND have a good meal for less than the room rate at other hotels. They have AAA and Senior discounts.

I spent a couple of nights at this hotel while my daughter went to UF for preview. I found the best price through Red Roof online using the Florida resident discount (under $55/night). The mostly uncarpeted floors were great! My feet did not get dirty after walking around bare foot in the room. The staff was friendly and we were...

Good price and location. The room was clean and a bit small which I expected. The staff were very friendly and nice to us. We had lots of family members in different rooms and they let us use the breakfast area for a take-out dinner one night. However, I am reserving one star because there was a very strange smell...

I had to stay in Gainesville while my dog was being treated at the UF Veterinary Hospital. They take pets at no extra charge and there is plenty of room to walk them as well as a poop bag dispenser and a receptacle to dispose of them. I wasn't sure how long I was staying and as long as I...

Me and my husband stayed here when we were on our way from Ocala, FL back to SC. We found ourselves in Ocala, ready to head back home the next day, without a hotel reservation at 5pm. The fact that we were traveling with our two dogs complicated matters. Ocala is a smaller city with very limited pet friendly options....

I've stayed at this hotel a few times now. The prices are always reasonable. I visit the Gainesville area because my dog gets treatment at the UF Animal Hospital, so every time I've stayed here my dog has stayed there too. The room has always been clean and that's what matters most to me.

Room was newly updated, clean, pleasing to the eye. Beds comfortable, bathroom was roomy with bath/toilet fan,and separate sink area. WIFI public was free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel, great value at $70.00 + tax/etc. Floors were "hardwood" with carpet under the bed walking areas
