We booked three rooms to stay in while in town for a family reunion and I'm still having nightmares of that nasty place. Urine stains, nasty mattresses, NO BALCONY OR WORKING WI-FI, carpet filthy and bathrooms are horrible and worst of all BED BUGS!!!!!!!! We found them in the beds and bathrooms. The front desk people told us the bugs... More

This was an end-of-the day / don't want to drive at night lodging choice. The location is great, just off of I-75. But the rooms are awful. My room had that "sour" smell that comes from a water leak that is not cleaned up promptly and Florida temps and humidity pitch in to create a petri dish right in your... More

The rooms smelled terrible, beds & sheets full of pee stains, could only get 2 towels for 4 people, room service only made 1 bed out of 2. Stay away from this hotel if u don't want to get sick. They lied about the wi fi. Stayed two days with two rooms and they never was able to use it.... More

Not a bad place to stay if you are travelling. After checking with the other hotels in the area, this place had the lowest price offered and were very friendly at check in. The room had a microwave and mini-fridge, so I didn't have to worry much. I requested an upstairs room and was accommodated nicely.

While heading to a Gator game with a friend, we stayed in this place for convenience and cost. I have traveled enough to recognize when bed linens have not been changed. We all have beds and we know what "crisp and clean" looks like. I asked the housekeeper if she had neglected to change the sheets. She became defensive, called... More

This is the worst hotel I have stayed. The rooms are not cleaned.... they smell very unclean and smoky even though we requested a non-smoking room. I would not even advice my worse enemy to stay there. This hotel needs to be out of business as the owner don't really care about people but care about money. We paid $66... More

I had a very pleasant experience with front desk. She gave me a senior discount and was very informative about the cave-diving that occurs in the Santa Fe river as a sport(that I would not indulge in). The room was set back from the highway, clean with all amenities: coffee-maker, hair dryer, ironing board, fridge, microwave and large flat screen... More

I don't think this place is fit for human shelter. Every hotel in Gainesville was either full or too expensive, so we wound up here. The lady at the desk seemed annoyed that I asked for two double beds. I assume at this type of hotel, only one bed is needed. We got in the room. It stunk like some... More

This property is in need of some serious investment in order to bring it up to an acceptable level of service to the travelling public. The complimentary breakfast was average at best. The air conditioner worked. There were ants in the room and the infrastructure was marginally passable but it needs upgrade badly.
