Family travel to Gainesville. It's location on I-75 makes it a convenient stop but I can't say it's convenient to much else. The mall is one exit down and the university is two or three- the primary reasons one would go to Gainesville as a destination. As for the hotel, it was very okay. This seems to be an older,...

The hotel grounds are beautiful, the lobby is much better than your regular best Western since it is a conference center and breakfast was good. The room was an average room that was very clean and adequate. Stayed with our family of three children & two adults the double beds were a little tight but fine for a one night... More

Stopped for a night while on the road home. Very close to the highway - so it was convenient to stop here. Glad we did! We were pleasantly surprised at how nicely kept this Best Western was. Friendly staff, nice room, good amenities, quiet, and the continental breakfast had free waffles and $3 omelettes. All in all, would stay again!

This Best Western gave the feel of a conference center. Not only was the interior and the room wonderful, the outside pool area was great. Having the exercise equipment as well as the opportunity to have a massage was amazing.

We recently stayed here on our way to southwest Florida. The hotel is lovely, in a great location for the highway, and is the most pet friendly facility I've stayed at. The staff was welcoming and accomodating, and made sure we had what we needed for an easy stay. Huge field for dogs, lots of grass all the way around... More

Attended mothers day brunch this year. Food was very good and the staff was pleasant. Shantil was our server, she was great and made the mother in the group feel extra special and welcomed. Everyone had a peaceful time and left full!

The hotel is just off the interstate so easy for those traveling up or down state on I75. Nice atmosphere, comfortable room. With free wifi. Bed and pillows were really nice and resulted in a good night's sleep.

On the northside of Gainesville so away from the College crowd. Nice clean 2 story hotel with pool and breakfast area. Easy access since it is right off of I-75. Near community college and food stores. Last exit going north wherw you will find selwction of businesses to meet travelers needs.

We had seen the sign on previous trips and decided to try it this time. A hidden gem and now our choice for our frequent trips to this area. Clean, friendly, quiet, nice pool and amenities. Good food near by.

My wife and I have found our favorite motel in the Gainesville area. It provides excellent service and facility at a great price. The fact that it is "a little further down the road" than would be ideal is more than compensated by what it offers.
