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

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.

I let them know earlier in the day I would be late checking in. I arrive exactly when I said I would to find a sign saying that someone would be back soon. I then see the person fast asleep on the couch. I try ringing the bell but no answer. It is one thing if my late arrival was... More

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
