I was recently in Gainesville at the Extended Stay America Hotel. It was a nice comfortable studio room. Recently renovated it had all the amenities for a "home away from home" stay. Located right off of I-74, Exit 384, close to Shands Hospital. A mini kitchen with a small stove top (w/two eyes), a sink, cabinets and a nice sized... More

The area is committed to patients being treated at Shands, this Extended Stay offered an additional discount while I stayed to be near my Mom during her radiation treatments. Everything you need with a kitchenette, and shopping just around the corner, most convenient, and a very friendly staff!

My stay here was comfortable and peaceful. The room was nice and clean. the shower was heavenly. If I stayed another night I would have used the kitchenette. Everything was great in the room, the one downfall was the loud heater, initially coming on it smelled like burnt hair and everything else, but once that smell went away it was... More

We went had to go to Gainesville on a spur of the moment business trip. We booked the room online and only stayed one very sleepless night. Our "neighbors" for the night were apparently a very young, inebriated crowd of business "professionals". I called the front desk multiple times to have the rowdy group be requested to calm down.

It is basically an old motel that needs to be remodeled. It is a great location for Gainesville. The rooms are your standard 50s-70s motel with a small extra area for mid size fridge, sink, and 2 burners. I had expected more for an Extended Stay America in terms of quality. The carpet looked like it had not been cleaned... More

My Wife and I needed a place to stay for 3 days while the air conditioner on our home was repaired. We made online reservations for a room at the Extended Stay requesting a king-size bed, non-smoking room. Our room, number 140, was OUTSTANDING. The room was very CLEAN, quiet, and the bed/pillows were GREAT. We slept very well. This... More

While the room was clean and well equipped, there was an odd, musty smell. When we checked in the clerk pointed out where the continental breakfast was to be served, from the small sideboard as you entered the even smaller lobby. Their wifi was free, but quite slow, unless you paid the fee to have it expanded. I can, however,... More

First of all, I was here alone for a course. 10 nights. It is relatively inexpensive, very clean, great mattress, full kitchen, free internet. On the down side, few amenities, no pool, once a week room service. I guess this place is perfect for what it is. It is a home base for an extended trip where you want a... More

We are only spending one night in this place. Please believe me if we needed to stay in town any longer we would not stay here. My "white" towels are terribly dingy, the non-smokers room stinks of cigarettes and the bathroom is so creepy that we don't want to bathe in there. Would not stay here again.
