If you're near Gainesville on I 75 This place is more than a MOTEL. A little pricy but convenient to 75 ( exit 390) and a decent restaurant attached next door. Gator Den for sport lovers Crispy Cream donuts at breakfast in the morning for your sugar craving kids plus all the usual B_W goodies.

Very nice hotel. Quite attractive in appearance and very large. Our room was very clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast provided by the hotel is free, but specialty omelets are $3 per person. The pool is nice and heated. The staff was very accommodating. Our stay could not have been nicer. Plenty of free parking out front. There is a... More

Awesome hotel. Fabulous staff. Erica in housekeeping rocks! She and Stephanie helped me find my husbands wedding band and made sure it was returned to us safely. :-) Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is quick and good, they have waffle maker which is always a hit!

This hotel is away from the rest of the town. Easy to get on and off. You will need a car to get to restaurants or call for a taxi. Just up I-75, you can every kind of eatery, shopping, and activity for the family.

This hotel was a stop over. Looking for a place to rest before I arrived to my final place in Florida. The hotel was clean, and the room was roomy for a party of three adults. When we arrived, there were cookies, a very nice touch.

Thank you for choosing the BEST WESTERN Gateway Grand for your stop-over in Florida! Being minutes off of I-75 we love getting the chance to welcome travelers to The Sunshine State! We're very glad you were able to take advantage of our hospitality; nothing beats a freshly made cookie and some ice cold lemon-water after a long drive! More

Expected to pay $50 or more than we did for the king suite. Well appointed, new appliances, and sooo clean. More a resort feel than described. Little touches made it special. Ordered room service & food was good - not gourmet, but adequate. Staff were quick competent & courteous.

Me and my husband visited Gainseville, FL to experience drag racing school in the area. Never have stayed in a Best Western and we were both pleasantly surprised. Way to go Best Western! I would definitely stay there again -- looking forward to it in the near future.

we stay here on our trip down south to Daytona Beach. This hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly. It's right across the street from the Harley store which was a plus for us since we ride!
