Awesome hotel for the price.
Stayed with our new sphinx cat and he loved it too!

Clean, remodeled, and spacious. Wood floors, marble tops, comfy bed and right next to the 75>
Fridge, microwave, coffee machine in the room.

Will stay here again!

This hotel has been refurbished to a standard higher than its star status suggests with flair and style. It is an exceptionally clean and efficiently run business and I would recommend it to anyone. Could not believe someone was finally smart enough to see that awful cheap carpet and heavy and multicolored bedding is the only answer. Crisp clean wooden effect flooring and mostly blindingly white bedding gave it an air of freshness I have never found in many hotel stays. These people deserve to do well

Recently stayed here five nights. Rooms are very nice for price and very clean. Also it is quiet if you don't mind the air conditioner/heater blower being on. I liked that because it erased road noise. The fake wood floors are nice and the rooms are very modern after the remodeling and much nicer than a typical Red Roof Inn. The beds are very comfortable. I would have given this five stars if the check in clerk was more friendly. While she was efficient she didn't greet you or act very friendly. The morning clerk was very friendly. This hotel is recommended for a stay in Gainesville if you are on a budget. Breakfast is not provided but they do have a coffee bar. For quieter rooms ask for a room away from the Interstate.

We have stayed at this Red Roof Inn for several years and have always traveled with our Yorkie and Welsh Corgie. We stay at this property and the one at Locust Grove, Ga. Several times per year on business. This time we made reservations in advance with your front desk and was not told your policies on pets had changed . When we arrived at 10:30 P.M. We were told we couldn't stay with the two dogs. The people who were checking in prior to us was also told the same thing.
We checked all other motels in area and by this time were full. So we drove on to Belview, fl. Where we were welcome at a new Hampton Inn. This will be our stop in the future. This was on Dec.21,2012.

I wish more hotels would remodel this often, because the rooms look great. Came back for the daughter's graduation from UF. Stayed in room 202, single king bed, great location, easy access from the stairs leading to the parking lot. The room has a wooden floor, except for a couple carpet patches near the night stand of the bed. Everything was clean, no hotel smell. Flat screen TV on the wall, table to work at. Plenty of plugs for phones. In room fridge. Everything just works here. No, they don't have free breakfast, only coffee downstairs. But there's plenty of places nearby, including Publix down the street. The wife slept in until 9am.

The Red Roof website indicates a "best available" price point of 77.00 for an Exec. King room at this location. When we arrived Saturday, 12-15-12, a college graduation was occurring in town. The desk clerk summarily declared that the computer was not offering any discounts. Although the room was clean and well-appointed, when visiting any motel owned by any chain, we have been able to negotiate some sort of discount, albeit minor. Because the facility was almost filled to capacity, the desk clerk had a "take it or leave it" attitude that we did not appreciate. Because we were tired after driving over 12 hours, we were not about to make an issue over this. Once you get into a $100 per night price point, we would have gone to Holiday Inn Express or other hotels, where we would at least get a free breakfast.

Dear dmeische,

Thank you for taking time and sharing your experience. I am so glad to know that you have found our newly renovated rooms are nice and clean. I understand your disappointment regarding our best available daily rate. It was higher than you have expected due to UF graduation in town. It surely increased capacity and higher rate in town. However, we still offered the best value. Offering the best value and clean rooms are our ongoing efforts. I hope we have another chance to serve you in the future.
