Red Roof Inn PLUS+ Gainesville

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel in itself is nice and new. The only problem is that the AC unit in my room had visible mold in it, hopefully they were able to change my room but I feel this is something that should not happen. The staff was nice.

Everything I needed to find in the area the staff was right on it. The hotel was close to everything.

Good economy option. Clean hotel. Very close to highway, but window a/c blocks sound. ;-)

I usually choose the Red Roof Inn in Gainesville to stay for last minute, unplanned, stays. They typically deliver a good stay with no major issues. My recent stay could've been better. The temperature was below freezing in Florida and the heater did not work in my room. No one was available to fix the issue until the next day. They only offered an apology. There were rooms to book online that night, so they could've switch me to a room with a working heater. Oh well. Other than having to take a hot shower every other hour, the stay was good.

It was very nice to have coffee ready and waiting in the lobby!

Really nice for the price. Room was clean and seemed fairly new. The only thing different from the other hotels in the area is that it doesn't serve breakfast. Just coffee and tea 24 hours.

They are super dog friendly and they have coffee always ready.

Nice clean hotel friendly staff. Room was a little small tho.

Was a very nice room. Everything I was expecting. staff was very friendly.

Nice hotel, helpful staff, great location, close to restaurants, supermarkets, bars, coffee shops and cvs.

We just needed a place to sleep for a few nights while moving our daughter into UF. The room was small but nice and clean. The beds were okay but the air conditioning unit was loud and kept cycling on and off all night long. It would be great if it could be left on so it provided white noise but we couldn't make that happen. The staff was super friendly and I would recommend this hotel. Just be wary if you are a light sleeper!

the location of the hotel was in a great location and very easy to find. Several food options nearby. A very friendly and helpful staff who make you feel important and are willing to help in any way they can.

Visited our son at UF and the hotel was clean and there was no fus.

Clean hotel in a convenient location. Easy to find off I-75. Well lit parking lot. Safe and clean hotel.

Very clean. Nice pool. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Stay here every time we have visited for past 3 years!

Friendly staff. Clean room. Great location. Hotel should charge a little more and offer continental breakfast.

Red Roof In Brand new rooms secondary to renovation. Clean, comfortable, as well as, affordable!

After a bad experience in another hotel in the area, I found this hidden gem. Excellent location,very friendly staff, modern and clean rooms, comfortable bed, perfect price! The only thing they're missing is at least continental breakfast, but they have good coffee. I will stay again!

i will be referring this hotel to clients when traveling on 1-75

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