Very economical ($45+tax), clean, quiet (from 441), lovely pool, laundry facility, & relatively close to the University. The host is a very gracious hospitable man - Mike (you guessed it!) Patel. For those not in the know read Life Behind the Lobby about Indian-American management & ownership of motels. It is the largest ethnic enterprise in the US. And growing.... More

We have stayed here multiple times because I have to come to Gainesville once a month for school. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and the area is quiet.

Have stayed here the last two years for Gator games. The location is very convenient and the price was reasonable compared to others. No, its not a fancy hotel with all the frills but its kept clean and comfortable. It has a pool and the basics for a great stay, fridge, microwave, ice, vending, etc. The owner I met in... More

I was relocating to Gainesville for work and stayed at ABVI from 8/26-8/30 2012 while I search for an apartment.

I stayed here again when my husband had to have more surgery at Shands. Once again, we were both welcomed warmly by Mike and the staff.

We had a relative in the hospital and chose this hotel because it's in walking distance of the hospital and because of the low price. We were extremely happy with all aspects of this hotel.

This hotel is clean, but the rooms and furnishings are old and worn. There was fresh paint on everything, but everything was cracked, patched, and held together with drywall screws. The A/C was marginal, the commode took eight flushes to clear, mattress sagged, carpets worn. No WIFI to speak of. It's located in a strip of older motels, with unescorted... More

This is a motel style hotel where you drive up to the door of the room. The room was very clean and the king bed was comfortable. This is a very basic hotel but great for an overnight stay where you are not looking for all the trimmings. Pool looked ok but we didn't use it. There is a Chinese... More
