I can tell you for sure that this is by far the worst motel I have ever stayed in....the soap is rough and the size of a postage stamp, the towels are like sandpaper, the carpet is filthy and the room itself is small and smells like mildew! Someone took one of our pillows sometime after the first night so... More

I loved staying at Suwannee Gables. The river was gorgeous, Spanish moss hanging from the trees, gigantic sturgeon jumping out of the water, a clean and wonderful swimming pool. My blood pressure went down the minute I got out of the car. We went swimming by moonlight in the pool right outside our door. This is a 50-s vintage motel... More

My husband and I travel to Florida several times a year. I am always a little scared of smoking rooms as I am not a smoker, but my husband is. I was very surprised to find our smoking room so clean and fresh. The next day my hair and clothes did not smell like an ashtray. We slept great and... More

I was passing through late at night and they were the only hotel I could find open. I felt safe there and the guy at the front desk was very nice. After that though, it went downhill. I went in the room and the comforter was stained with what appeared to be bodily fluid, my sheets had small stains on... More

My family lives up the road so when we surprised them for a visit this was conveniently near by. The absolute best part of it was that they are pet friendly (however I did not agree with the pet fees - but that is true of all hotels). They also offered WIFI which was another reason why I decided to... More

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.
