We stayed with a group for 3 nights at this hotel. The location is very convenient and the hotel was quiet, clean, and well lit. Nothing fancy, but a great bargain. IHOP is across the street and daily continental breakfast served daily. Easy access to I-75.

Was in Gainesville for business and stayed at the HOJO for three nights. Everything was very good, and I have little to complain about. The value is excellent for all that is included in the room and the breakfast. The breakfast could use some loaves of bread.
