After traveling 11 hours needed a place to sleep. We have a small dog so we checked into a pet friendly room. After about an hour we found small ROACHES in the room. We killed them and went to sleep however the next morning I opened my iPad and there were several more inside the cover. We arrived home and... More

I booked this hotel for work because best price for the weekend for a home game in Gainesville. I found the staff delightful especially Jayne and Hilda. They were always pleasant and went above board to help customers. The room was very large with a large bathroom. The mattress was wonderful with ex-large pillows. The room and property where very...

I was on an impromptu motorcycle trip when caught by a (several) heavy rainstorms. Usually I live by the rule "life is too short for cheap hotels"...but hey..this was an adventure. Econo lodge it was! For 75.00 I got a filthy room, a "continental breakfast" that was laughable- seriously laughable- and had to park my bike in the downpour. This... More

I stayed in this motel last night prior to going to Itchetucknee Springs today. The front desk staff were consistently helpful and kind, gave several good suggestions for the area. Our room was old and fairly dirty. The sheets were threadbare but did appear to be clean. It appeared our room had not been used in quite some time. The... More

Service was GREAT....literally could not have been friendlier. The room smelled horrible, the floor was filthy, the drapes were dirty and there were poop stains on the toilet. The beds were very comfortable. The price of the room was extremely reasonable and the location was perfect. The hotel is in pretty good shape and parking is very easy and convenient.... More

This hotel has nice staff but the rooms need a good general cleaning. Roof was water stained. Stuff on the walls. Shower head put together by tape. Looked like they had people who have extended stays. The microwave was broken. But in general the room needed a good cleaning. We had four rooms and some were better than others. I... More

I can appreciate in remote areas the hotels being a bit aged. However, the first bummer was the rust ring around the drain so my daughter couldn't take a bath. Room 101 had nice covers over the mattress and nice and clean beds. Around the perimeter of the room was a dust ring where the cleaning staff must not have... More
