I was relocating to Gainesville for work and stayed at ABVI from 8/26-8/30 2012 while I search for an apartment. The place is easy to find along the SW 13th St., and nearby amenities include convenient stores [CVS, Kiwi shop(?)] and resturants [Subways, Steak 'N Shake]. Ample parking and it is served by the local RTS bus (13) [Stop: Bros Auto Shop] that runs weekdays and weekends. That was important for me as I don't drive. It is within walking distance to Shands Hospital and the University of Florida.
The room was large [Rm 125(?)] and relatively clean (see some cobwebs at the lightings and high corners and dead insects in the painting). TV, phone, mini fridge and microwave in working conditions. Air-conditioning worked but it was a bit noisy. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the beddings were clean. The toilet and bathtubs were clean and in working conditions.
There are wading pool, laundry room and vending machines although I did not use the facilities. The morning snacks and coffee at the reception were great though.
The staffs were helpful and they helped me get around town and gave some useful advices while I was settling in. Thank you very much.
