This is a small property very conveniently located in Gainesville. We just stayed for one night to visit my son who attends the University. We arrived early and were told that check in was not until 2pm. We were offered the option of waiting in the lobby (which is very small and not really inviting) or come back later. We... More

We had a non-smoking room, but there are many smoking rooms across the hall. So there is a pungent smell throughout the hallway AND in the non-smoking room. Overall, room fairly clean but outdated. CRT TV. Towels in bathroom were stained and dingy... very nasty. My room had a fridge and microwave, which was nice. Continental breakfast was adequate but... More

Super 8 Gainesville This hotel is situated among other mid level hotels (Hampton Inn, Stay Bridge Suites among others). This was just a quick stop on the way to Orlando for us on March 23, 2014. The parking lot, lobby and pool area appeared nice as we arrived. There was one sketchy looking fellow lurking around the entrance which made... More

We are very sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your stay. Next time, (if you didn't before) talk to our front desk staff about your problem with the smoke smell, and they should be more than happy to move you to a floor far away from the smoking rooms. We greatly appreciate your feedback about the... More

The hotel was good for the price but had a lot of overwhelming smells. The whole 3rd floor smelled of onions until we got into our room, which had been doused in cinnimon air freshener. My husband had bad lung problem and had me open the window and we had to leave for a few hours just so he wouldn't... More

There was no attendant to check us in so we had to wait. We reserved our room in advanced for the bottom floor. We the attendant finally showed up he tried to give us a room on the second floor. One of the first things you notice when you walk in is the smell. This motel smells of cigarettes, animal,... More

The hotel is pretty standard for a Super 8, but the service is fantastic. We checked out at the appointed time (11 am) in the middle of a rainstorm and were offered an extra hour in our room to wait it out. There is no covered spot to load your luggage, so this was very helpful in keeping our belongings... More
