Too noisy to sleep

Nice room and staff but the neighbors so noisy that we could not sleep and the AC was extremely loud.

clean

If you're looking for a very clean motel at a moderate price, located close to everything you could need, with friendly and courteous staff, this is it. I was pleased and offer no complaints whatsoever.

Great Remodel Job!

I visit Gainesville from time to time and try to find value when I stay 1 night. Red Roof Inn did a terrific job with their remodeling. The rooms do in fact have hardwood floors and NOT carpet. This is a tremendous improvement by means of having a cleaner room. The rooms were spotless, the doors had plenty of looks and the room was quiet. The wireless was great as I was able to stream my Netflix without any problems. They also have a nightstand with multiple plugs within easy reach which is a plus when traveling with multiple phones, tablets and laptops. Location is a few minutes from the UF campus and right near the highway and multiple restaurants if just passing through.

Eat at any of the following places when in town: Bonos for Barbecue, Embers for Steak, The Top, Stubbies (german food), and Sweet Dreams for homemade ice cream. Also visit the Hippodrome for an independent film or a play.

Nice for the price!

Was only here for one night, but I enjoyed my stay. The staff was friendly and personable, the bed was really comfortable (I slept like a baby), and there was free coffee in the lobby. Of course, the fact that it's only a few miles away from UF made it even better for me. :)
