On our cross-Florida bicycle trip, I'm becoming more familiar with cheap motels (sub-$60/night). This one in busy Gainesville was barely adequate, just barely. Lights not working in the bathroom (so the nice manager gave us her desk lamp to plug in); one dead bug (maybe a cockroach? I didn't have my insect field guide); and a rather small room. I've stayed in worse, but not much worse.
One cute touch: I opened the drawer in the nightstand, and stuck to the drawer bottom by the Florida humidity was a torn remnant of the leatherette cover of a Gideon's Bible. In its place: a Bhagavadgita.
