Stayed here for preview and for move-in for my daughter's start at UF. Close to campus, quiet area, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast is the usual for a Quality Inn. Staff is very nice. It isn't a four star hotel, but the price isn't either. I'm sure I will stay here again and again over the next few years.

We spent one night at the Quality Inn University. It is OLD and in need of refurbishing. It was clean in the room and the bed was comfortable. It is only a few blocks from the University of FL Campus. The parking lot had numerous cigarete butts in it. Obvious that it had not been cleaned in some time. Outside... More

You should have no probelm with this very inexpensive accomodation in Gainesville. While the area is not the best, the rooms are clean and have been renovated. But there are only very few non smoking rooms, so the possibilty of getting stuck with a smoking room is very high. I cannot reccomend this one because of that.

We got this at an employee discount rate- otherwise I woud probably give it 2 stars. The pool was eh, the rooms were eh- nothing special. It was close to the Gainesville airport, which was convenient for us since we were in town for a weekend wedding. We didn't spend much time in the room, actually...just to sleep. We never... More

The folks than run this place are nicer than most, and more personable. It was refreshing to be sincerely greeted and attended to. Their hotel is pretty average, though. It's decent and pretty clean, but a little of a step down from what I have seen in other Quality Inn's elsewhere. The hall smelled like smoke, and the room key... More

Ok place to stay, clean rooms, nice pool, ok breakfast w/very small area to eat. Small room for a stay longer than overnight. Advantage close to the university, disadvantage close to the university. For our purposes it was a good location but a pain to navigate to upon arriving. If you aren't going to a function at the university then... More

FACILITY was very clean, it does need some refurbishing in some places. Rate was reasonable, staff was very helpful. Breakfast was the standard fare for a Quality inn. DIid not use the pool but there were quite afew that were. Rooms were large with refrig and microwave and flat screen tv. Would use this motel again.

We stayed here for one night while visiting the University of Florida. The room was clean but needed updating. The hair dryer was melted but fortunately we brought our own. The staff was very attentive, however, and brought us extra towels within minutes of our request, and they had no problem with us staying until 6pm at a half-day rate... More
