The stay was wonderful. Staff is very helpful when you ask them something. The Lounge/Bar was great. A nice wind down after a long trip. The room was really comfortable. Room really nice, Clean. Everything worked. Didn't get into pool, but looked at it. It looked really nice. Walking around I felt very safe also.

You would never believe that this hotel routinely allows pets. There is not a hint of odor in any of the rooms. The staff is quite polite and professional - both the front desk and cleaning crew. The rooms are clean, the linen is fresh and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised the first time that I visited... More

Hotel is excellent. We definitely will be back. We've been gone for over a week and I have lots of things I must take care of. We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel and we will be back. What else can I say? Thank you.

Everything was as it should be. The hotel had good parking, was convenient, clean, well-staffed, and appropriately appointed. Check-in was easy and friendly, lemonade and fresh cookies a nice touch. Help was offered and questions answered. An expected delivery was waiting in our room. We even were able to get wine glasses on loan from the restaurant. Rooms and baths... More

Because we enjoy stopping in Gainesville, Florida, to have dinner with a longtime friend of my wife en route to our vacation destination in Sarasota, we have made it a habit of staying at Best Western's Gateway Grand Hotel. This was our third visit. On our first stop, we were named the hotel's customers of the day. Lots of treats.... More

Thank you so much of making us a regular part of your Florida travel plans! We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to provide you with a home away from home on your way to Sarasota.

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!
