I have been a loyal customer of this particular hotel for the past 10 years or more and have usually stayed a minimum of 2 days 5 times per year. I have always found it to be one of the best hotels in the area but was disappointed this last trip. The hotel was clean and the staff were all... More

I love to see a chain hotel that goes out of its way to decorate for the holidays. I have stayed at this hotel on business several times and have always loved the various decorations. This means a lot to a traveler who is away from family. Staff is always courteous and friendly. I always look forward to arriving here... More

I stay once or twice a month at the Best Western Gateway Grand in Gainesville. It is one of the more newer hotels in the area with excellent access to the highway. The rooms are fairly spacious and the staff is friendly. There is an onsite restaurant (Gator's Den and Sports Bar) which is pretty good, but you have to... More

The hotel provided a safe, quiet room that was fully appointed. Room had a suite look to it with a full wall separating the living area and bed. All items in the room worked correctly and the internet worked very well. No road noise.

Thank you for your comments. The hotel was made with cement walls so noise is never a complaint we receive. I am glad your visit was comfortable in our king deluxe room. We also have hot tub suites and a 3 room presidential suite for a luxury stay. We hope you visit us on your next trip to Gainesville. More

The hotel is in a great location next to the Harly Davidson shop with a nice sports bar connected so if you are traveling you will not have to leave the property for any reason. If I have reason to travel in the area again I will be staying at this hotel.

Having spent a long day of travel we looked forward to an evening cocktail and a quiet evening. We made the reservation at this BW+ and expected a quality experience. This hotel exceeded our expectations - it was quiet, extremely clean and the staff was wonderful. Rooms had the finest bedding that we have enjoyed and they were fully equipped.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. Had a wonderful time in Gainesville area in large part due to the pleasant experience of staying here. The room was clean, comfortable, and did not notice any intruding sounds from other rooms or outside hotel despite that it was a full house over the holiday with adults, kids, and dogs. The... More

By far one of the best places that I have stayed, Great rooms, great service, the only thing that I could complain about was the weather and they may have even tried to do something about that as well. Always look forward to staying there and will do so again.

Always our first choice when needing a place to stay in Gainesville. The staff is always polite and helpful, rooms are super clean and well-maintained, it is a very dog-friendly hotel with a new large field for our pup to romp and the omelette station is back! Hooray!

The staff was excellent. They couldn't of been nicer or more helpful. Rooms were clean and well kept. The restaurant/bar was great and we had a lot of fun there. Would request a room not so close to the lobby because of noise from the breakfast service. The management is excellent and their staff reflects it.
