Our family spent a few days in the area during spring break, and this motel was just right for us. There are a number of natural springs nearby (Fanning, Manatee, Ginnie, Blue, and High Springs), several of which we visited. The owners are very nice and gave us useful advice. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, have a refrigerator, and are... More

Suwanee Gables has a great location! It is right on the river and they have a huge area to have campfires, cookout, and hang out with friends. My favorite part is that they also have a canoe launch right outside of the motel and we loved going on the all day canoe trip.

Suwanee Gables is a quiet and peaceful place to relax. The Suwanee River is beautiful. There is a nice wide view of the river in the back and places to sit and enjoy the river. It is close to Manatee and Fanning Springs which are beautiful state parks.

Owners were very nice and courteous. The property is being renovated but the back yard against the river was beautiful. Room was cozy and comfortable. Hope they make the updates they plan. Enjoyed our overnight stay. Will come again. Reminded me of the old ma and pop hotels of the 70's.

We were driving from California tired so we pulled in here and they had great rates and the owners were friendly. We got a cabin and it was clean. We woke up the next morning and the view took my breath away. I would recommend staying at this motel anytime. we had a great experience.

This place is not a modern boutique hotel.. It is a throw back to the 50's and 60's style motels that were prevelant throughout this country. Not a big chain motel. A family run operation. The rooms are clean, the beds are very comfortable. room size, good modern TV. the bathrooms are small but the water is hot. The motel... More

This is a very old run down motel. A group of us riding jetskis rented 4 rooms. I can only speak for mine but others pretty much confirmed my gripes. The bathrooms are ridiculous. The toilet literally sits against the tile of the wall. Showers are missing grout and do not drain well. The beds are old, pillows flat, comforters... More

We recently stayed at this motel and it was utterly terrible. The first room we had was unlivable. It had bed bugs, spiders and was very dirty. We asked for a different room and were moved. The second room wasn't much better. The bathroom had toilet paper and filth on the floor. The room had spider webs everywhere. We killed... More
