Stayed here for a couple of days while attending an event at UF. America's Best Value seems to be a chain that buys out old motels and puts their logo on them. Each one I've seen is different. This is an old school motel, single story and surrounded by parking. Rather run down, but clean. There was a notice about... More

Place is quiet and clean. I would classify this place as middle tier. Stayed there because UF had a lot of visitors. Would have stayed in a better place if it was available. For one night it was OK. Location is close to UF on 13th Street.

Stayed here on a trip south. Convenient location with plenty if restaurants around. Room was large enough and clean. Separate vanity outside bathroom was handy. Had MW oven and fridge. TV was fine. To sum up, a clean and comfortable spot to spend the night. Would stay again.

I stayed a few days for a conference that was held at the University of Florida. My room was clean and the staff was really friendly. I will mention that the lobby smelled funny, as if there was excess humidity. Eventually the motel will need a renovation. Other than that everything was perfect! You will need a car to get... 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...

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.
