TripAdvisor Ratings

Clean, good location and price
July 22, 2017

We used to live in Gainesville and any time we go to visit or travel by we stay at this location. The price is usually very reasonable usually in the $100 range and the rooms are always clean. The location is just off I-75 and is near Butler Plaza which has several grocery stores, Target, Wal-Mart, and many food options.

Always a great experience!

I have stayed at this Red roof several times while visiting my elderly parents in northern Florida. The inn is always very clean, always the best value in the area and the staff is exceptional. I had booked two rooms on 7/10/17 because my adult daughter was with me. Gloria greeted me like an old friend and completed the registration process very quickly. When I came back by the desk a few minutes later she was vacuuming the lobby and Crystal was at the desk. I made a comment about how everyone in the inn does whatever job they need to do and how impressed I was with all of them. Crystal was quick to let me know how much they appreciated my positive comments and asked if there was anything else she could do for me. When I came back in after dinner she was at the desk acknowledged me as I walked through the lobby. An amazing place with amazing people.

excellent value!

The hotel is located on a quite side street, adjacent to one or two other similar hotels. The whole area is nice, clean, quite, and feels safe. rooms are clean, with laminate flooring which I personally prefer over carpet. the property is situated for easy access to freeway and shopping and dining.

Good night's rest
June 22, 2017

For the price, you're going to be hard pressed to find a better deal of this quality. The rooms have large flat screen tv, hardwood floors and the beds are comfortable, but somewhat stiffer than I am used to. All around a good place too lay your head down

Anytime day or night!

I do work regularly in Gainesville and have stayed at a few hotels in town over the years. I have always had good, comfortable, restful stays at RR. Whether planned in advance or like what happened recently in June, where I had to stay in town over night, at the last minute. RR is always an accommodating, clean and dependable place to go! They just remodeled recently, btw... called them around midnight and night shift manager, "Dennis from Tampa" was very helpful and gave a very reasonable rate when he could have gouged me like most hotels do when they have someone who desperately needs a place for the night. I can always count of RR and will continue to go there on my future business ventures. Thanks Dennis!
