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 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

I stayed in America's best value inn for just one night in October 2014. I needed to stay close to the University of Florida. Rooms were clean and smelling good. Near to restaurants and Florida University.There is a Hibachi Japanese restaurant next to the hotel. The hotel is open so it can be a little bit noisy because the parking... More

Yes this MOtel is close to U of F, however it is absolutely the most disgusting hotel we have ever stepped foot in.

The rooms are horrible, they are quite dirty and shabby, and the lobby smells pretty bad (problem with the drains?) but the location is good and the swimming pool is this places one redeeming feature - we spent a gloriously hot morning sunbathing and swimming by the pool with hardly another person around - this place is doable if you...

This hotel is always one of the cheapest places to stay, even on game weekends, and has clean rooms, free wifi, a large pool and patio for friends to come over and enjoy. The staff is always pleasant and very easy to make reservations. Join the discount club and you can get rooms even cheaper!
