REVIEWED: "Great Place to Bring Your Dog!"

"The Red Roof Plus in Gainesville, Florida is a nice surprise. We are traveling with our very senior dog and needed a place to stay for the night. The room has wood floors (no carpeting) which is perfect for senior dogs. We have a refrigerator with a snack box that was filled with water, orange juice, and granola. The room is beautiful and the bed and pillows are very comfortable The staff is exceptionally friendly. Could not ask for more!" Book your stay now!
