We chose The Gateway Grand for it's location (the choices on Newberry road exit seemed sketchy). The property looks like Beverly Hills inside and out but it's a value price. We stayed the previous night at the Best Western Orlando airport--clean but bare, spare bones--no comparison for about the same price.

We were in town for a family wedding, and this place was chosen. We received a nice discount on a block of 16 rooms, and also booked the large banquet hall for the wedding reception. The staff was great, the rooms were great, the complimentary breakfast was fantastic for all the families with different tastes. The staff and kitchen did... More

I stayed at this establishment for a wedding weekend. The hotel grounds are immaculate. The lobby and breakfast area are large and welcoming. The pool area, although it was too chilly for our use, was larger than your usual Best Western or any other interstate hotel. My only complaint would be the beds. They were HORRIBLE!! The beds were so... More

I got a wonderful deal on Priceline for this hotel. Everything about it was perfect. My grandsons had fun in the pool. The included breakfast was superb. I can't say enough good things about this hotel.

We weren;t expecting such a nice place when crossing the country on our "Raccoon Run II" tour, but this Best Western surprised us in all good ways. an oddly pastoral setting, big pool, peanut butter cookies upon arrival, front desk staff who asked if we had AAA in order to give us a better rate, (Hi Tiffany!) and since we...

Very helpful staff. Upgraded room without extra charge due to convenience and fairly quiet day. Able to get faxes from them along with extra toiletries. Free newspaper. No complaints. Would stay again.

My company stayed at the Gateway Grand for a seminar we hosted. We have stayed at this property before, and as usual they did not disappoint. The staff were excellent in all aspects, from planning the meeting, to check in, to the service in our meeting room. A few things of note. A few of the attendees commented that their... More

Tried to book a three star hotel in Gainesville......and even when left in the dark(priceline) had a hard time finding anything at a reasonable price. Called the Best Western......was quoted a very reasonable price including extended Continental breakfast- great service and extremely clean and pleasant hotel. Great beds(slept like a rock), good breakfast, fast check in and check out.

Because these motels are individual franchises, you can never be sure what you will get, but this is a good motel. Even though it is less than 100 feet from I-75, I could not hear the traffic when inside the room. This motel has a ballroom and hosts quite a few functions, so maybe that's why it is a bit... More
