My husband is a double amputee and for that reason has to have a bathroom with a shower bench but preferably with a roll in shower. We got to the hotel early ready for what invariably happens when we get to hotels - rooms that don't meet our needs and folks who are insensitive to the needs of individuals with...

Hotel is clean and in a good location. Rooms were comfortable enough. The staff seems to spend a lot of time smoking just outside the lobby doors. Breakfast was the normal free continental breakfast offered in similar hotels. They have a discount rate for people going to Shands Hospital. Make sure to call and ask if that's what brings you...

Checked in at midnight and the front desk gave us a discount for late arrival which we didn't ask for. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There are numerous free toiletries if you have forgotten anything. As my husband went back out to the car, they were cleaning out the popcorn machine. They insisted we...

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the room. The staff was very nice and the check in process went without a hitch. There was definitely cookies and popcorn ready in the lobby which was refreshing. I didn't have time to enjoy breakfast, but it looked adequate.

We were late arrivals on April 17, 2015, and were welcomed by friendly staff. Cookies and popcorn were still available at 10PM even with a full hotel. The 3rd floor room was clean and comfortable. What surprised us was the breakfast area, it was spacious and the food and beverage choices were not bunched together so people could move around....

This is the second time we have stayed at this Sleep Inn due to my wife having a doctor appointment at UF. This is definitely one of our favorite hotels we have stayed. The facility is very clean, up to date and very comfortable. The staff including Rae Ann at the front desk and the breakfast bar staff are very...

Typical hotel, not to expensive but not budget pricing. The staff were wonderful. I was there with family because my mother had to be sent there for emergency surgery. It was a very stressful time and I went there unexpectedly. Rae Ann the manager was so helpful and lowered my anxiety level as she helped to find rooms for incoming...

Spent the night here with a friend from out of town. Everything was very clean and the bed linens crisp white and clean. There was a mini fridge in the room which was nice to have. My friend got a great nights sleep in her bed. I didn't sleep as well in mine. Mattress was a little firm for me...

The staff is friendly and very helpful. Been staying there for over a year because of my husband's surgeries. Would not stay anywhere else! Would love to go down just to relax but can't do that yet. Rae Ann is an excellent front desk manager.
