I have been using this hotel for years now and this has been my first chance to write a review. I stay at a LOT and when I say this, I mean a LOT of Choice and Wyndham chain hotels. For the money, this is one of the better ones. Let's start with paint. I see hotels all the time... More

We were in town for a Gator game and this was the only hotel I could find for less than $150/night a month in advance. It is conveniently located off of I-75 and is your classic 2-storie motel type with a tiny lobby. I was quickly checked-in even though it was close to 1:30am and given a room around corner.... More

I really like staying in a room that is up to date and has nice bedding but when just stopping for the night on a road trip I get a little cheap. This time I wish I would have paid for the nicer hotel just across the parking lot. The rooms are clean but there was a definite odor upon... More

We stayed only one night so we can ride the Gainsville to Hawthorne bike trail the next day. This place was very nice, smells clean and very comfortable. The price was reasonable and we felt it was worth it for being close to where we wanted to visit. The staff at the check-in counter was friendly.

Booked our room on choicehotels.com using my cousins friends & family discount (she is a Choice hotel employee in CA), then was told upon check-in that we couldn't use the discount and was forced to pay full price, so we could only afford to stay for 1 night instead of the 2 we had reserved.

Was leery of staying because of past reviews and photos. Room was clean and neat. No bugs to be found. Apparantly place was cleaned up after 2012 advisors. Price is right and location is right on. Would stay again.

The major plus - You can usually get a room for 1 night at a decent price for a football game. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend staying here. Can get much better room elsewhere. During our 1 night stay, killed 5 roaches in the bathroom. There were fleas in the grassy strip in front of our room. Marginally clean;... More
