“My expectations were exceeded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

I knew Gainesville Lodge was the "cheapest" place for me to stay at so I didn't expect any frills. My room was clean ... the bed was clean and very comfortable so my expectations were exceeded. I had read reviews complaining of smell, roaches, etc.
My room (#105) had no smell ... saw no bugs ... checked the matress for bed bugs, found none ... pillows comfortable. I only wanted a quick overnight stay as I teach at University of Florida and live in St. Augustine and didn't have time to get home so I chose this location and was happy for the value received for my money.
