This is an older ground-floor exterior corridor motel. Because of the many favorable reviews, I decided to make this my first stay at an America's Best Value Inn. The property is newly painted on the outside and appears very well-kept. The check-in staff was very friendly and courteous; the clerk took it upon herself to upgrade my room from a... More

We have stayed at this hotel during the Gatornationals for the past 4 years. This is a no-frills hotel, but the rooms are clean and the hotel is quiet. The rates are about the best you will get during race weekend. We've dealt with the same front desk staff every year and they are always friendly and courteous. This property... More

I needed a place to stay for one night. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. The cleanliness was so-so, found some animal hair next to the t.v.. The one complaint is probably the poor sound insulation, I could hear the music/alarm from the next room. In sum, good service and so-so facilities.

I stayed here during Fest (last weekend of October). The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was spacious and clean enough though not spotless. The only real problems were that the towels were poor quality and the bathroom needed redecoration. Comparing it to what friends experienced this seems pretty much average for Gainesville at a budget price.

We stayed during Florida/Florida State during Thanksgiving weekend. The staff was friendly and the manager, who had checked us in, went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and commented that if we have any trouble to let him or the front desk staff know at anytime. I don't think many hotels really do that to the same... More

We stayed November 4th and 5th and this is the worst hotel/motel we have ever stayed at. The carpet is so filthy that it feels grimy to walk on and left dirt stains on our socks and feet. The towels are so old and worn out that they have thin thread-bare patches and stains. Also each large towel we got... More

This is an old inn. However, rooms have been updated and are very clean. Pool is crystal clear. This is a NO FRILLS ACCOMODATION. There is no breakfast but restaurants are close by. Service is good and staff are lovely. If you need a room close to UF, you have found a great place.
