Although I found the staff very friendly, I did not get the room I thought I was going to get. I made reservation through Trip Advisor, but they passed off the reservation to Hotels.com. That is where the train ran off the rails. I was quoted a price for a room that was supposed to have fridge, coffee maker, and...

Very adequate and clean but I hadn't done my homework and was very bummed out that I paid that much with no breakfast. Seems they are pushing upgrades and I guess if you pay enough you can get some juice and a granola bar. Probably be a weak moment when I book the next Red Roof.

Room was very clean, front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Most secure Inn I have stayed at. Lobby is locked at night and you need your room key to enter. No complaints . Would have likes coffee in our room. But not a big deal. They have it in the lobby.

When they say basic, they mean basic. This is the first hotel that I've stayed in for years that doesn't have coffee, a fridge or a microwave in the room plus no breakfast. I had to fill the sink with ice to put my groceries in the cold. They are also not part of a chain so no points unless...

We were in town for a nephew's graduation and looking to keep our costs down. Hesitant to go with a Red Roof. But this one was a sleeper. A real gem. Our room was top notch. Clean. Comfortable. And one of the least expensive options in Gainesville. Close to I-75 but with the AC humming......we heard nothing to disturb. Less...

Stayed there one night as we had an early morning appointment at the UF Veterinary Hospital. Call the hotel direct if you are going to do anything with UF Medical. Their rate was only $57 per night. All the hotel sites were at $80. Just had to show your appointment card at the desk for this rate. The hotel is...

I had to go to Gainesville on personal family business, so I was looking for something close to where I had to be and somewhere that was reasonably priced. The Red Roof Inn Plus + was a pretty good fit. Now, let me preface this review by saying that staying in hotels is my least favorite way to lodge when...
