This Q Inn is old and it shows. The rooms, however, are very clean, fresh paint on the walls, and overall attractive, once you walk in the door. The beds are very comfortable and the A/C worked well and was quiet. Outside, the hotel age shows as well as the surrounding neighborhood. It is clear the Gainesville business world has... More

For the price, you really can't beat this hotel. The service was top notch. Sanjay at the front desk was incredibly friendly and very accommodating. The room shocked me with how clean everything was. It was literally spotless. The complimentary breakfast exceeded my expectations. They had a waffle maker to make fresh Belgian waffles, eggs, buscuits and gravy, cereal, oatmeal,... More

I am in Gainesville a few times a year for both business and pleasure and I am quite familiar with the limited lodging options here, particularly if you want to be anywhere near downtown or the UF area. If you have a car your #1 choice should be the Paramount, if you want to park and walk your choices should... More

What more could a frequent Gainesville traveler want? Many rooms are far enough from US 441 that you can't hear traffic, even with the AC fan off (see Helpful Room Tips, below). On our first stay we went for breakfast 15 minutes after closing time. Sanjay not only opened the door to the breakfast room, he made a fresh pot... More

The very best things about this hotel - breakfast, close to campus, and surprisingly comfy beds. Also, the staff is quite helpful. Details: 1) We were initially booked in a king room - it was just around the corner from the lobby, at the base of the staircase, and the smell of smoke hit us in the face the very... More

We stayed at this hotel in June, and it was one of those, "oh wow the photos are rather misleading" experiences. The photos make the property look enormous, the pools look inviting, and the rooms look bright and airy. In reality the parking lot was small and the property crammed in next to a strip of retail stores that look... More

The Quality Inn was clean, but a room that would normally cost $69 per night was $99 because we had the bad luck of scheduling our visit during the week that parents were bringing their kids to University of Florida for the Fall Semester. I imagine that the same level of price gouging goes on when there's a sports event,... More

Stayed at Quality Inn for a weekend visiting a family member at nearby hospital. Very clean, comfortable beds, very friendly staff. Free buffet breakfast included waffles, eggs/grits, cereal, fresh fruit, toast/bagels, coffee & juice. I would Definitley stay again if in area.
