Comfy Stay
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel during U of FL graduation weekend. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location was perfect for everything we did that weekend.

Surprisingly Awesome!!!
Everything was friendly and super easy! They actual give you a nice comforter instead of those crappy covers most places do! The free WiFi is fast enough to do everything I needed it to do. We received a tremendous value. I’m just kicking myself for not knowing about Sleep Inns sooner (sounds hokey but it’s true). I was checked in and lounging in five minutes. I will be staying at Sleep Inn’s in the future!!!

Fair 4.0
There was mold in the bathroom and dresser drawer. The staff was very nice and the room had been cleaned well, but the overall condition of the building was disappointing.

Exceptional 10.0
Everyone was very nice and friendly. First hotel we have stayed at that had a tailgate party for all the guest. We went to Gainesville to attend a college football game and thought that was very thoughtful of the hotel. They also provided a shuttle service to the game.
Jennifer A, us3 night trip
Good 6.0
We entered the room and noticed a musty smell right away. The toilet wasn’t flushed. There were exposed wires/light bulb by the vanity due to the cover missing. Just not a nice room. We don’t think we will be back.
