It was clean, quiet, and fairly new. Breakfast included two hot items, cereal, yoghurt, juices, and waffles. No fruit other than apples. At $84 it was $40 cheaper than the similar chain hotel the night before. Heat/AC worked fine. Nearest batch of restaurants was five miles away. Wifi was easy to access and fast. No complaints and they take dogs.

We chose to stay here for my graduation from UF, as hotels right in Gainesville were a little more expensive. It is about a 20-minute drive from here to the UF campus, so if you don't mind that, then this property is a good alternative to staying in the heart of Gainesville. The hotel itself is clean, well-maintained and the... More

Nothing special about this place. Our room was clean and all I could ask for with a last minute stay. Very affordable on a College football weekend. There is a nice pool and complimentary breakfast. Dunkin' Donuts just across the street. Friendly service.

For the price 121.00 per day I found this to be a very poor quality Inn. The front desk staff lacked the ability to cope with things such as an inoperative remote, during my stay I felt I was transported back to the seventies if I wanted to change the channel or volume I had to get up and walk...

We stayed a week and couldn't have been happier with our selection. The manager and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean when we arrived and smelled nice too. The housekeeping staff cleaned our room everyday and gave us clean towels and toiletries when needed. The morning breakfast was excellent with a multitude of items to choose... More

Meager but lean. We checked in at 19:30pm. The front desk person was more concerned with talk to his girl friend on his cell, then checking us in. Room was ok.. The towels were very thin an sheets/blankets need replacing. I do sleep okay but AC noise was a bit much.

Bed sheets were placed inside out. Front desk girl was smoking a cigarette in front of entrance while talking on phone while someone was requesting service at front desk. Experience here has always been good.

We spent 4 nights here with our 9 yr. old baseball team. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. They truly made us feel at home! Even put cookies out for all the kids at night!. The Waldo Inn and Suites was very accommodating for our large group.

While the motel building is attractive for the price, the meager staff is not trained to provide service. The reservation was mishandled (wrong date), the AC unit in the suite was inadequate; the filter was filthy which inhibited cooling. The laundry room did not have detergent nor did the front desk so had to trek to the store, v
