Basic, comfortable accomodations

Posted Aug 25, 2016

Pros: Location to UF, stores, restaurants & the new expansion of Butler Plaza.
Cons: Have fresh coffee available in the lobby to guests, or at least in the rooms, and pets relegated to one floor only (say, the first floor maybe?).
Location: Great restaurants, shopping, site seeing, UF.
I've been staying at this hotel for the last 2 1/2 years to visit my children at UF. I loved the place! Fresh baked cookies and fresh coffee in the hotel lobby during Happy Hour. Fresh coffee in the lobby each morning. Excellent staff and impeccable rooms. Great price. I stayed there again this past weekend to help my kids move back to school. How disappointing! The staff was ok, but seemed unorganized. Greeting from the clerk: "Hello.This is a pet-friendly hotel." I asked what floors the pets use and he said "any room on any floor." When I asked what if I get next to a noisy dog. Then he replied, "I'll move you." I commented that why can't Red Roof Plus put guests with pets on one floor so all can enjoy each other's pets. The guy laughed. (I was serious!) Our room was ok, but when I went to take a towel off the towel bar, the holder came out of the wall. When I went to report it, staff said maintenance is off on weekends & don't worry about it. In the morning, I went downstairs to get fresh coffee in the lobby and there wasn't any. No coffee makers in the room either. Upon checking out, I overheard another guest report about the electric socket was faulty that the hair dryer was plugged into & he got shocked. Staff told him that maintenance wasn't available until the work week. What the heck? And cleaning staff doesn't wear uniforms-- they wear jeans. Time to go elsewhere I'm afraid. The quality is sub-par, at best. And what's with the "NO COFFEE"?
