I believe they should install new carpet. Or replace with tile.

Wonderful stay, close to college for a visit to my son. Clean and friendly!

So far so good, just the carpet in the hallway seems old need to change.

I stayed here for a whole week and it was quiet, comfortable and clean the entire time. They put out a nice selection of food for breakfast too. It's really a full breakfast, not just coffee and pastry.

We love staying at Sleep Inn in Gainesville,FL.Our room was very clean and quiet.The beds are extremely comfortable.Also, the towel supply was very generous.The size of the bath towels too,were great. Most hotels have bath towels the size of a RUG and I hate them.Sleep Inn does everything right.The Management is to be commended and it is a great value compared to many other hotels. We will go back there again.

I've been back several times. It is quiet, clean, and comfortable.

it provided everything we needed for our stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room and facility was nice and clean. Convenient to U of Florida.

Our room smelled like mildew. Not worth the money.

This hotel met our expectations. Good locatin for a late night game. Staff was very nice.

I stay at Sleep Inn when visiting Gainesville on business. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They always have cookies, popcorn, and hot coffee available in the lobby area. Breakfast was a cheerful, clean atmosphere with a lot of options.

Just stayed overnight while travelling to Disney World. Convenient location (close to I-75). Breakfast was good.

This was the perfect place for us. Traveling with kids is hard but this place was perfect with every that that we needed inside. Cleanliness is very important and clean they were. THANK YOU!!!

The hotel is near many others, both of lesser and higher quality. This one consistently meet or exceeds my expectations of a clean and safe hotel, well managed, and conveniently located. It is not a 5 star hotel, but you get good value for what it is.

Was a great room, slept great, there was a target store close,I needed some things to take on my cruise, it was so handy to go there. Good places to eat, had a waffle for breakfast , staff was plot.

Stayed there one night, was on my way to Tampa. There was a target store close by, I needed somethings for my trip, the waffle the staff made me for breakfast was great. Would stay again.

ok Stay in gainesville florida staff was great and in good location

The location of this hotel was perfect. Plenty of good restaurants nearby and right off of the interstate. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. There were fresh baked cookies upon check in, an added plus. Our room was comfortable and the hotel was quiet. We always stay in Gainesville on our way to Disney so we can get up and get to the parks early on our arrival day. I would stay here again.

Nice place. Clean and breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly and willing to help. Also it was close to the interstate without hearing the traffic and close to my daughters university.

Thank you for submitting your review. We appreciate your feedback. We do agree that the carpet needs to be replaced. Due to the constraints put on us by Choice Hotels it is a process. We currently got approval for a better grade of carpet and hope to have the replacement completed by the end of summer. We do hope that we will see you again in the future so you can check out the new carpet. Sincerely, Alice Harvey, AGM
