We've stayed at this hotel many times in the past, and have NEVER been disappointed...we will continue to stay and recommend this one...The Gator Den which is attached to the hotel has great food and atmosphere. This trip was the first time we had an opportunity to use the pool and we were not disappointed there either.

This is the best Best Western we have ever stayed at. The staff was very friendly and professional. The amenities are great and price is good. Would definitely stay here again. Restaurant on site was good and staff was excellent. Free breakfast was good

The staff was extremely helpful giving us information about visiting UF. A couple of issues though: the furniture in the breakfast room was very stained and needed updating; the carpet in our room was worn looking. It was a handicapped room and there were marks from the wheelchairs. We really didn't need a handicapped room, but somehow we were assigned... More

The hotel is located next to the interstate and takes just minutes to get to UF or other parts of Gainesville. The hotel is quiet and there is plenty of parking. Two staff at the front desk at all times of the day to quickly take care of your needs. The inside and outside of the hotel is quite beautiful,... More

This is a beautiful hotel. When you walk into the lobby you find this great open space, well decorated, and friendly. The rooms are spacious and the amenities are very good. The layout of the breakfast area is the best I've seen. All this for a good price in a good location. This is a great value for the money.

Love that I can bring my dog and it is only an additional $20 pet fee. Most places charge $75 or more! Great location-away from the mess of Archer road. The pool area is great and breakfast is good-made to order eggs are additional but there are plenty of options that are free.

The front desk are welcoming, accommodating too. This time we got a pet room on the main floor , which we appreciated as we have extra gear to bring for the kitty. We were able to check in early too, so we could relax while our pet was having treatment at the nearby U.of Fla. Small Animal Hospital. This is... More

I was attending an extensive workshop at UF. This Best Western is extremely comfortable. The pool and hottub were a great way to relax after a long day. I did not use room service but other extended stay guests did and were very satisfied.

There are many great things about this hotel. There are a few negative issues that I had. The hotel is located right next to the interstate which makes it accessible to get anywhere in Gainesville. It is still a quiet hotel and no interstate noise. When checking in there's a $100 incidental fee, YEESH! As I was checking in and... More

First time staying here. Recommended by a co-worker because other G'ville hotels are rundown. Many positives, three negatives. Good-next to interstate with no noise, clean, spacious, pool, large and quiet room. Bad-$100 incidentals, YOWZA. When I hesitated she asked me immediately if I wanted to cancel my reservations. Roach in room (not a palmetto, I know the difference). Cleaning lady... More
