“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

We stayed here on a trip to Tampa. The hotel was clean and quiet and handy to the interstate. Breakfast was good, with lots of choices (hot and cold). We walked to the Wing House for dinner. There were several other eateries in walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

We decided on this hotel based on both it's close proximity to Micanopy and it's price. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly management and staff. Our room was modern, clean, nicely decorated and well maintained. The public areas were equally nice, clean and well maintained. It was obvious to us that the management and staff were very proud of their hotel. The management was hosting a Christmas dinner for the staff and their families on the night we arrived. The receptionist invited us to join them. Everyone was warm and friendly and we had a great time visiting with them. Whenever we are going to be in the Gainesville area, we will definitely plan to stay here.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn, Gainesville 2 nights in Dec. 2013. Very clean bathroom in room, and shower drain did not clog at all. For the most part it was quiet, but we could hear the television in the adjacent room. Breakfast was included, and there was sausage, canadian bacon, and some kind of substitute scrambled eggs. The attendant offered to make a waffle. Also bagels, cereal, rolls. Good coffee. Very friendly, courteous staff.

This is a nice hotel that is close to the University of Florida. Lots of restaurant choices close by as well as other shopping. Very friendly, helpful staff. Our room was clean and very spacious. It was the typical breakfast but I can't complain when it is included in the cost of the room. And the price we paid for the night was great. We will definatley stay here again if we are ever in the area.

This place was clean, quiet and comfortable and just off the interstate. It's right near the University. They gave us a very good rate that was advertised on trip advisor. Good, hot breakfast the next morning with eggs, biscuits, gravy, etc. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We were on the way home from Apopka, Fl and we were really tired. Saw the add in the green book for the Sleep Inn and thought we would give it at try. In the ad it said they had a high rating from Trip Advisor. The desk person was just bringing out fresh hot cookies for the evening snack when I walked in. Set me up with a great room and a king bed. The room was large and spacious, clean, nice layout in the bathroom, the refrigerator was clean and cold, the wifi connected right up. The next morning the Hot breakfast had scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, biscuits with sausage gravy, and waffkes, plus other items. The breakfast area was well maintained and the breakfast attended came around to make sure everything was right. Great Stay!!

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was nice and quiet.

Our son is a student at UF, and we have stayed at a different hotel each time we have visited him. Our Gainesville hotel search is over. The room was clean and in great shape. The front desk and staff were very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was very good. We'll be going back.
