Motel was cheap and clean, but the in room heater is very old with no temperature setting. It would get too hot and then too cold when you shut it off. Spent most of night turning it on and off. Also, there was no in room coffee pot, alarm clock, refrigerator, microwave, kleenex (nose tissue), but there were no bugs... More

We read review before we booked, but tried to be optimistic in regards to the one good review out of 10 bad ones. The price was great, but the conditions of the room was unacceptable. I've stayed in motels in rural 3rd world countries that were cleaner than this. The lamps were covered in rust, there was some "unknown" substance... More

Game day weekend in Gainesville is the absolute worst time to book a hotel, and this hotel presents a cheap and efficient option. After reading previous reviews, we brought Clorox wipes and our own sheets (it should be noted that we are germaphobes and we're idiotically franking out about Ebola and the enterovirus). The truth is the worst part of... More

I read all of the reviews and hoped it wouldn't be terrible. The pillows were mildewed yellow. The carpet was gross. The room smelled of smoke. I am shocked the Department of Health hasn't closed this location for the numerous health code violations contained therein. Maybe people just don't complain enough.

Should not have waited until the last minute to book a hotel for homecoming at the University of Florida. The place is disgusting. The Bates Motel would have been an upgrade. Obvious ceiling leak which caused the wallpaper border (yes wallpaper border) to have chunks missing. Stains on the carpet. Faucet in bathroom was rusty and green and the tile... More

Let me start out by saying I always stay in budget motels and have stayed at some places that were not the greatest all the time. However the fact that this place can operate and not be shut down is a miracle. This was the filthiest place I have seen and it pained me to stay here. I could not... More

My mother, brother and I stayed here over this past weekend because one of our family members was graduating from UF. Seeing as it is graduation weekend, every hotel/motel room was either taken or the prices were jacked up. We found this through a search engine that I will not mention, but I wish we had not reserved this. It... More

Stayed here two nights with my girlfriend because a dual football game/track meet sold out every other hotel in gainesville, and i procrastinated making reservations til the day before. We're each in our 20s and very low maintenance. PROS: - Cheap price - Clean room: Got a non-smoking, and there were no smells in the room at all. Sheets, pillows,... More

Believe me, I don't understand why so much negativity. I have a 4 day stay at this motel..and services provided was more then satisfactory. My stay was comfortable, staff was co-operative and for this price range it couldn't any better. I highly recommend it for all those who are looking for a cheaper alternative.Also I must add this is close... More
