My dad had to have surgery due to cancer so we were pretty uptight with the pressures on us and decided to book a stay the night before surgery. The staff at this location was nothing less than perfect!

I have to say, I have been through quite a few hotels in Gainesville, Fl. My stay at the Sleep Inn was the best night stay I have had in a long time. The breakfast was wonderful and the bed was the best sleep away from home. I'm definitely recommending to everyone.

Stayed here while taking my son to Shands. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. Was very happy with my room and will definitely stay at this location again. Breakfast being available was also a nice bonus with staying here. Very close to Shands, UF and many great restaurants and shopping locations. Very easily accessible from the interstate.

I recently stayed at the Gainesville, Sleep Inn & Suites University/Shands. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and how quiet it was. The staff was very friendly and they always had coffee and treats in the foyer.

We had been driving all day and I had reserved our room ahead of time. The price was very reasonable and very accommodating. The advantage is the on/off access from the interstate and the restaurants nearby.

My daughter was having surgery on a very busy week in Gainesville. I had trouble finding a place that could accommodate her needs. They not only found me a room for the entire time I needed it but gave me a medical discount also. Hotel staff was super friendly, housekeeping was outstanding and the hot breakfast was delicious every day....

There are many hotels in the vicinity of the Sleep Inn, which is at a very busy intersection of Florida Highway 75 and one of the "main drags" in Gainesville, Archer Road. We have stayed at other properties in this area, several more expensive, but due to TripAdvisor ratings, decided to try Sleep Inn this time. We were not disappointed....
