Saved My Birthday!
July 15, 2018

We booked at a different hotel for my birthday and when we got there it was horrible. We left with no where to stay and after a quick Google we found the red roof. Walked in and the girl at the desk was so nice and helped us get rooms! The rooms were clean and really nice! Even got a birthday upgrade! I would recommend this place all day!!

Nice hotel
July 08, 2018

Clean, nice room, excellent location. Quiet during the night, good aircon. The lady at the welcome desk made little effort to look friendly but all in all this was a good stay. I'd recommend it to others.

Did not live up to my expectations
July 05, 2018

This hotel did not live up to my expectations considering that it is considered a Red Roof Inn "Plus". I grew up staying in Red Roof in type motels as I traveled frequently with my family, who was frugal when it came to spending lots of money on hotel stays. I vowed to myself that as an adult, that I would steer clear of Red Roofs, Travel Lodges, Supers 8's and other motels of their caliber because traditionally they can be iffy in terms of cleanliness. This Red Roof Inn Plus in Gainesville was a typical Red Roof inn. The only reason that the "Plus" has any legitimate meaning is because the room did have wood vinyl flooring and a flat screen tv. The wood was nice, and a flat screen is to be expected in the majority of hotels and motels in 2018. I booked at this Red Roof Inn as a quick pit stop and though my stay was not terrible one, I do not desire to stay again in the future. I have come to realize that anytime a hotel offers nightly rates on the $60.00 range that it is something that I am no longer interested in in this stage of my life.

Simple and well-located
June 27, 2018

I chose the Red Roof Plus on a trip to Gainesville because it allowed dogs of any size, and I had my daughter's shepherd mix staying with me. In addition to to the generous pet policy, the hotel was one of the least expensive and was located for very easy access to the animal hospital and a LOT of restaurants and stores, as well as I-75. The room was simple and neat, with wood floors but also had a carpeted area between the beds for a gentle "landing" getting out of bed. The internet and phones were down when I checked in, but staff were working around it the best they could. Check-in is rather late at 4:00, but I was able to get a room at about 3:30. My room was on the first floor, very conveniently right next to an exit for the dog. At night this did cause the pup to be anxious, though, as he could hear all the other people and dogs who also used that exit (what are you going to do, right?). The room was clean and certainly spacious enough for me, my daughter, and dog. The beds were comfortable enough that both humans slept later than usual each morning! Our A/C was fine once we got the room to a temperature that we agreed on; although it felt very humid at times, there was no musty odor or sign of excessive dampness. I noticed a small room off the lobby with coffee options, but did not try any. The vending machine sells Pepsi products. There is a simple outdoor swimming pool in the back with umbrella tables and lounge chairs. The TV channel offerings were more than adequate. There really are no frills, which is fine with me. Between the location, general comfort, and cleanliness, my daughter and I agreed that the Red Roof Plus is an excellent option for travelers who need a simple place to stay, and the generous pet policy puts it at the top for travelers with larger dogs. I would not hesitate to stay there again, whether I had a pet or not.

The staff was super. Monica and Gloria at the front desk are the BEST. As I checked in they made sure that since I was a Redicard member, that I got their best possible rate. The next morning they made sure my stay was good. Thanks guys!
