We travel quite a bit and have stayed in a couple of "America's Best Value Inns" and they were quite decent. Without a doubt, this one was the most disgusting place we have ever stayed at. The exterior was dirty with garbage laying around, the room was absolutely filthy, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a week. The towels... More

This is an older property so a little shabby, but the room and grounds were clean. If you are looking for full service with amenities this is not your hotel. If you are looking for a a basic room with place to sleep while enjoying Gainesville actives this property may fit the bill. What we liked: clean, fairly quiet, easy... More

This is the dirtiest sleeping accommodation I have ever stayed in. Everything about this place is unlivable, from the bed full of cigarettes burned sheets to the ridiculous midget size paper thin bath towels, to the no working fridge full of mold inside, dirty carpets full of who knows what kinds of stains , to the very old TV witj...

The owners were very kind and helpful, the price was right, and we just needed a place to sleep. Beds very very comfortable, nice water pressure and hot as you wanted. The walls were a bit thin and we heard talking from next door so try to get a room by yourself if possible. The restaurants within walking distance were... More

I didn't like anything about my recent 3 day stay here. The air conditioning unit was loud, the bed was supremely uncomfortable (rock hard), there were only a handful of guests during our stay but they put us all right next to each other--and we got stuck with very young, boisterous, loud neighbors for one night. We asked for 4... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for staying with us. I am so sorry that your expectations were not as the neighbors were noisy and our staff fell short of providing the needed extra pillow.

For the price, this was a good place to stay. Clean room, comfortable bed, and a reasonable price. There is an above average China buffet on the grounds. I liked the shampoo dispenser. I found no faults here

ok for a quick night stop but the motel is getting a little old and dampish. We stayed here once before as its next to the highway. Next time we are in Gainesville we will check out others. No breakfast. Staff were nice and polite and helpful.

Stayed there two nights for a Gator game and it was by far the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in or seen. The walls were even filfthy. The only good thing about the place was its proximity to the stadium. We'd never stay at an "America's Best Value Inn" in Gainesville or anywhere else for that matter, again.

The staff is excellent. I wasn't able to find the Gator game on TV, so I called the front desk. The manager of the hotel came right to my room, reprogrammed my TV and I was watching the game within minutes! That's excellent customer service. Very friendly and willing to accommodate in any way to make your stay the absolute... More
