If we hadn't had plans already made to be meeting friends we would have walked out on this Motel. First the clerk tries to tell me I have two rooms reserved ... but as a courteous she'll correct (whatever why would I need two). Then she tells us we have to plug in things we want to use .... one... More

Old, dilapidated, scary motel. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room but it reeked in stale cigarette smoke. I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke so I had a sick headache & woke up with my face swollen. The sheets & pillowcases appeared to be clean but I was afraid to look at the mattress. I was also afraid... More

DO NOT stay here. Dirty, creepy and neglected. Balcony totally disgusting. Shut the drapes immediately. Thought I would catch a disease here. Surprising that it remains in business at all. Zero star review.

We only stayed here because an event in town filled all the other hotels and we had to see our grandsons. The room was large and may at one time been nice but it now needs a lot of work. It looked like a recent coat of paint had bean applied but no drop clothes were used and the carpet... More

The issue with this hotel wasn't that is was particularly dirty, but that it wasn't particularly clean. I think the biggest reason for this is that the rooms are dated, but does that really matter when you're just there to fall asleep? There was an old pillow case laying on top of the TV (presumably from cleaning and just being... More

This hotel backs up to a giant homeless community by the creek. You will be better off sleeping in your car. Shameful operation. You have to walk the property before signing. I guarantee you will be appalled.

Knights Inn is a serious wreck. The overall vibe of the place is sketchy at best. It is conveniently located to a Checkers, gas station, and not too far from Krispy Kreme and UF campus. That is probably where the pros of the place end. The hotel is certainly dated and gives a feeling of years long past. The rooms... More

I live in Gainesville, and while I was waiting for my new apartment to be painted, cleaned, etc., I checked into the Knights Inn. I admit that what attracted me was the low rate, and I will also admit that the place is not new and could use some renovations, but I really can't believe all the bad things folks... More

So, this stay was a few years ago, in February. My husband and I went to Gainesville to visit his cousin, who was at Shands after an accident and back, neck, and jaw surgery. It was also our anniversary so we decided to kill two birds with one stone and search for a hotel with a "honeymoon suite" kind of... More
