“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 weeks ago

Our daughter was in the hospital. Went on line to book the room. Left the hospital at midnight. Went to check in showed them our confirmation, to be told they were all booked up. Had to go try to find another room at midnight. Very rude staff. Would not recommend this hotel...

Stayed June 2014

I stayed on 6/3/2014. Arrived late with prepaid reservations. The room had: half eaten watermelon, open drinks, open food, food in the bed, unmade bed and was by far, the worst I have ever stayed in. After seeing the inside, I was afraid to even leave my vehicle outside. I booked this room after reading the reviews. It was to late to do anything different, as I only had a few hrs to sleep, which I did not due to the noise in the hallway. Reviews here, some were good, some not, so I took the chance. For you ladies out there, this is not a good place for you. Whole experience nasty and no secure feeling or sleep. Spend your money somewhere else. Sorry but we all should review so others know. Maybe the maid didn't do their job? I don't know why, I just know what it was like night before last.

Room Tip: Choose another location, period.

Had a decent time and enjoyed the hot shower and good coffee. But the FREE continental breakfast needs more improvement (greatly). So don't forget to ask for Andrea at the front desk,she was nice and courteous while we got our intake papers together.

Americas Best Value Inn Gainesville North is anything but a best value. Cracked paint, dirty common areas, broken light fixtures and understaffing make this place one of the most pathetic lodgings I've ever stayed at. It was graduation weekend, and we booked late, so choices were limited, but no matter what you do, don't stay here!

This property is operated not company owned, but if this chain cares at all about their reputation, they need to check out the poor condition of this motel that bears their name.

My husband's 6-week job lasted 4 months, so we spent a third of a year at AMBI I-75 Gainesville. The furnishings are not new, but clean. The carpets are impeccably clean (my socks stayed white). The rooms are a good size. The pool is clean. Management worked with me about the daily fee for our dog, and they were more than fair. The continental breakfast consisted of danishes in wrappers, coffee, and juice.
The hotel is difficult to find, even though it is right beside I-75. The driveway is right next to a convenience store, and you have to look for the sign.
The head of housekeeping, Toni, is the glue that holds the place together. She is genuinely friendly, and goes above and beyond her duties daily. If everything is not perfect, she does everything in her power to make it perfect. She makes herself available day and night, often getting up in the middle of the night to show a guest a room. She is the most professional person in the hotel, and makes sure that her staff is professional too.
Our only negative experience was with the maintenance man, Chris. He is unprofessional, loud, incompetent, and rude.I believe that Toni can do Chris's job better than he can.
Except for the maintenance man, we had a great experience overall, and would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel one night April 4/5th 2014 and what noted our attention is the friendliness of the reception staff. The staff was very responsive and provided a lot on information readily without having to ask. The room met our expectations, however, the reception staff informed us to let them know if we found anything that needed change.

The room had pressing iron, hair dryer and microwave, though we did not expect them.

Unfortunately there is some construction work going one along their entrance from the main road which made us do a few rounds before we found the place, though their sign is visible from a distance. The reception staff apologized for the inconvenience.

I will certainly choose this place, if we were to visit Gainesville again.

Room Tip: If anyone is visiting while the construction is progressing, stay on the right lane as you pass NW 7...

Hotel well located near I-75.

Welcoming staff both in the afternoon and morning.
Room in the back away from traffic was clean & comfortable.
Bkfst could be a bit more substantial but for the price, overall was good value.

Property is undergoing renovations from previous ownership so you should not expect perfection or very high standards - you get what you pay for

Room Tip: Ask for room in back away from street & I-75
