We found a fake fingernail partially glued to the bedspread. There were hairs in the shower. The place overall run down. There were obvious illegal activities going on. Did not feel safe. I would not personally recommend this to anyone.

If your in the bottom rooms, people in rooms above you sound like they are coming through the floor and when you call the office to have the noise making origin quiet down they do nothing about it.Then if you need an extension they tell you be at check...

We have stayed here for one night. We found hairs on the sheets, blanket and shower. The toilet was leaking, airconditioning wasn't on on arrival. Hard and squeeking bed. It was very noisy as well. There was a very busy road near the motel.

There was a Crack in the tub, the towel rack was loose and fell off the wall when removing the towel, sink was totally clogged and the door outside door had about a 11/2 inch gap where you could see to the outside. The noise from a late check in woke everyone, when reported to the desk (1:30 am) nothing... More

We booked this room for graduation weekend 6 months ahead and it was really all that was left in Gainesville due to graduation. The room was very small. The 2 double beds were each pushed up against the walls so only 1 person could get off the bed on the side. The bedding was dated and the towels were thin... More

Couldn't find a real room so we did the Motel 6. Normal lodging is Red Roof so we're not comparing this to the Embassy Suites. The bed creaked, the room smelled and the 'update' was a downgrade. The only good thing was quick access to I-75.

My friend and I booked this hotel for a football game b/c it was one of the only ones still available - we quickly found out there was a reason for that. I have never stayed anywhere so disgusting in my life. The bedspreads had cigarette burns on them (even though it was a nonsmoking room) and were dirty, the... More

Easy on and off the Interstate 75. Very reasonable rate and pet friendly at no charge. Experienced front desk provided smooth efficient check-in. It is near plenty of restaurants and places to see. It was one of the better Motel 6 properties.

There were 2 events in the area, I had already stopped at 2 motels and no other rooms were available. I was glad to have a place to stay for the night. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, though the bedding and carpet were worn. There were several places to eat nearby, but I was... More
