We stayed one night as my daughter was doing a campus tour at University of Florida. Check-in was brief and efficient. Our room was clean but basic - beds, desk, TV, hairdryer, iron/board, soap/shampoo, and free wi-fi. There is a safe for $1.50 more per night. This hotel has Plus+ rooms that you can upgrade to for an additional fee....

We chose this hotel based on the four-star trip advisor rating. The front desk was not very helpful or welcoming. What a disappointment- the beds were floppy and the hair dryer did not work. There was no coffee maker or in room fridge. We won't stay at a Red Roof Inn again.

This hotel has recently been remodeled and is extremely clean. The room had wood laminate flooring and the beds were super comfortable. The staff is very nice and helpful. It is within walking distance from several restaurants, shops, and a grocery store.

This was a very clean, very quite room, bed was comfortable, close to food and shopping, staff was very polite and helpful, I was house hunting and I would definitely stay at this site again and recommend it to everyone. Best stay in a long time!

The hotel is clean and run by friendly staff. Room pretty basic but updated with new furniture and hardwood laminate floors throughout. No breakfast but for that price per night you really shouldn't expect it. Sheets clean and soft pillows. Many good choices nearby for meals.

We stopped here for one night during a long drive. We were really happy with the quality of the room for the low price we paid. The location is very convenient, as it is right off of I-75. Overall, it was a great stop for us to rest so that we could continue driving the next day.

We chose Red Roof Plus to stop for a few hours of sleep. It was rated number 11 with TripAdvisor and the price couldn't be beat. Upon checking in, we met Monica, she was absolutely wonderful, very friendly and inviting! The public areas were very clean and well-kept. Our room, although very simplistic, had quality furniture, comfortable bed and a...

Room was comfortable and clean with easy access off Highway I75. Reception desk staff was very friendly. Wifi was a bit on the slow side but it worked fine for the most part.

Nice for the price stopping spot adjacent to Interstate 75. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Nearby gas station, grocery store and chain restaurants make this the ideal spot for an overnight stay over.
