First time in Gainesville and was very satisfied with my stay. My room was very fairly priced, room was clean, and service was solid. The best thing about this hotel is the amount of food, shopping, and retail in the area. There is literally anything, and everything, you need in a few mile stretch. I would definitely stay here again.

What a nice place to stay. Clean... Nothing Fancy but definately a big step above ordinary. Would highly recommend. Good free breakfast. Nice bar in the evening. Only drawback was only one elevator was working so was typically a wait but was told due to the cold weather.

Very handy location (close to the Interstate). Receptionist very helpful and courteous. Room clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was as you would expect. The breakfast room was well managed and stocks were regularly replenished and not too busy considering the hotel was full. In all a very good stay.

Recently booked a stay here for 4 nights as I was expecting to stay that long for my Mom's surgery. At around 4 pm the second day mom's surgery was postponed. I went back to the motel and explained what had occurred to Alice and she kindly re-booked my reservation and allowed me to check out. I thought that was... More

Great location for an overnight (or two), within site of I-75 and close proximity to restaurants and UF. The beds were comfortable with ample pillows, the only "issues" I had was that they only had the block-out curtains, no shear curtains which meant you had to keep the block-out curtains closed all the time unless you wanted a perfect view...

The staff, RaeAnn and Cheri were so accommodating!!! VERY friendly and went out of their way to make us feel right at home. It was clean, quiet, with a good breakfast and in a nice, safe area with all inside rooms. Also has free wifi and a In-house gym on sight.

Nice find as we got off the interstate in horrible rain (1-23). Very busy area with lots of hotels and restaurants. Very nice hotel and the fresh popcorn hit the spot after a long day of driving. The room was very clean and comfortable but I could hear people walking above our room at night and in the morning. It's... More

I have been at this hotel previously and their service was impeccable. Cleanliness of rooms was top notch and not a single issue about this hotel. I came back again for a conference at UF and needed a place to stay, this is my go-to hotel as it has the finest service at the best price. We needed a cot... More
