It's ok for one night. Looks like it was renovated a few years ago, but the bed already feels uncomfortable. Internet was on the slow side. Looks like they have some locals living on the property full time.

We booked this hotel through Trip Advisor for a one night stay for a high school event. When we got to our room, we immediately threw back the covers and checked the sheets, due to a recent bad experience. One of the sheets had a visible recent blood stain. My husband took photos of the sheet and ran down to... More

This hotel is a 2 star out 5 star hotel. So my rating it based upon it being a 2 star hotel. I want to emphasize that I rate hotels based upon on the hotel's star rating because the higher/lower the star I expect less or more. As such, I don't expect much from a 2 star hotel. Important information... More

We have stayed here 2 years in a row while attending a University event. It is nothing fancy but suits our needs as a decent, inexpensive place to stay close to the Stephen OConnell center. The it is clean, the beds are very comfy, there is a small fridge and microwave, free wifi, and complimentary breakfast buffet, all for $75-$85.... More

Of all of the hotels/motels we stayed in during our road trip from Canada to Miami, this was by far the worst. The bathroom in our unit was about the quality of a gas station bathroom and my husband didn't want to use it so he went to use the bathroom in the motel lobby. Unfortunately, that one was no...

Stayed here recently one night on a business trip. It was just down the road from the main campus, a little further to Gainesville's small downtown core (not walking distance). It is an older, traditional-style motel and the public walkways could definitely use a thorough cleaning. The room was well maintained and clean, bathroom tub kinda ratty looking, widescreen Panasonic... More

This isn't a brand spanking new hotel, rather an oldie with some refurbishing that has been done and still is under progress. Despite the fact that the bathroom tile was from the late 70's (soft pink tiles) and the room itself had a modern Asian dark furniture with light green wall vibe going on, it was clean and the beds...

We had an appointment at the VA Hospital and needed a room overnight. We normally stay right off the interstate but I read the reviews so we got a room. Room was discounted because of hospital visit. Room seemed very clean and quiet. We go up the next morning showered and that's when we saw roaches. We informed the lady... More

This location meets all the standards that you would expect from the Quality Inn model. It is clean and has all the amenities in the room such as a refrigerator and microwave. Remodeling is recent and up to date. This is an ideal location in Gainesville if you have business at the VA or are going to the University of... More

I stay here every two weeks. The rooms are always clean and the staff is excellent. The area around the hotel is pretty dark, but I have never had any kind of safety issue. I enjoy staying at this hotel.
