I stayed here for a few nights while visiting family. I was very impressed with how clean and comfortable it was. I do wish that they would have someone who could help you with your luggage though. I had quite a bit of luggage as I'd been travelling for two months before arriving there and I really could've used some... More

This hotel is a good place for staying in Gainesville. Most of the hotels in G'ville are slightly below standard or either at the other end cost wise. The Gateway Grand is nicely appointed. The rooms are clean and the amenities are just right for a several days stay. I was able to use a coupon from a hotel travel... More

Thank you for making our father's 90th birthday celebration a night to remember! Jason, Katherine, Caleb, Kim and Kaitlin served everyone in excellence! There is another gentleman/waiter that I do not remember his name, but he is included in making our dad's 90th birthday celebration memorable! From the time we walked in and met Jason, we were locked in our... More

Its all show and no service! The exterior and lobby of the hotel are very nice but unless you're spending the night on the lobby couch don't get your hopes up. The room was terribly dark and dingy with a very foul mildew odor. The bathrooms are worse than a college dorm room with exposed head shower holes so you... More

I don't frequent the Best Western chain, but I was here for a convention. This hotel was modern, clean and the amenities were wonderful. It has it's own restaurant but I was unable to eat any meals during my stay. The morning breakfast was adequate, cook to order eggs, but with the exception of the availability of egg whites. So...

This Best Western has it going on, they get it. The Omelette station in the continental breakfast bar at $3.99 was awesome, better than most luxury resort brunches, the chef was spot-on perfect. Truly pet friendly, we had a Belgian Malinois road tripping with us!

Went to girls softball world series. Kids HAD to stay here. Grandparents HAD to follow. Bar and resturant closes at 10 pm. Late games with travel over after 10. Not a lot for $150 a night. Harley shop across street is the only place you can walk to.

First person we met checking in was Ana who was friendly and helpful. She got us enrolled in the rewards program and upgraded my room! Visit was for a softball Tournament and any time we had outside food the staff would offer us plates/forks etc... They held our luggage while we were at the field after checking out! Thanks Ana...
