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

My husband I were looking for a quiet, off-the-beaten-path type of motel, and we found just what we were looking for at the Suwannee Gables Motel. If you're looking for a motel with breakfast, cookies, coffee any time of day. . .well, you won't find that here. (Go back to I-75 at Gainesville if you have to have that kind... More

We found the owner very accommodating. The place was clean and the King Size bed was very comfortable. As it is right on the Suwannee River we put our fishing lines in but didn't get catch anything. Nice and quiet area. It is an older motel and comfortable for a decent price. Glad we were close to the Manatee Springs... More

This is a great place to stay and the owners are very friendly and accomodating. Wonderful location, with a great view of the famous Suwannee River. I would recomend this establishment to anyone i know. Good Value.

Didn't read reviews prior to reserving 2 nights in a king room. Small reunion with old friends, one friend lives in Old Town so we took the reunion to him this time. Not many places to stay in the area. Friendly manager, beautiful location, downhill from there. Unfortunately the review about being better off in your car in a Walmart... More

Great location, beautiful views, a piece of Old Florida that you thought had all but disappeared. Rooms are tidy, clean, management very helpful. Just minutes away from Springs and perfect spot for a riverside picnic. Good value.

We recently stayed in the motel part and had a king size bed. The room was immaculate and we were not bothered by any noise. (I had been worried about it being clean because of a few reviews). The owner could not have been friendlier. Unfortunately the weather was cool and we couldn't enjoy the wonderful back of the motel... More

It was a refreshing treat to stay at a family run hotel at the Suwannee Gables in Old Town, Florida. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed fishing and the beautiful FL weather. We dropped our lines in and had a bit of luck. We had two meals out at BBQ and I heard ABC Pizza... More

The outside of this place looks okay & on Trip Advisor there were good reviews, this was why we were going to stay there: Much to our horror when we checked into this motel the room was the dirtiest we had ever encountered: we left immediately. I do not think the beds had clean sheets & there was dirt all... More
