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

I highly recommend it for all those who are looking for a cheaper alternative.Also I must add this is close... More

There was a blood stain on my sheets. When we arrived there were several lengths of hair in the unwashed bathtub - including the short, coarse and curly variety. There is no fridge. The front desk service was nice and the walk to campus for the game was easy and doable.
