This is one of the cheaper motels in Gainesville, but a cut above in quality and service. I think the fact that it was recently a Fairfield Inn meant that it had better quality construction and furniture than the average budget motel. While most of the rooms are small, just barely big enough for a king bed but not big enough for two double beds, that king bed is very comfortable. The sheets could have been softer and the pillows more supportive, but they were okay. There was a good size refrigerator, a decent flat screen TV with a good selection of channels, and a bath/shower with a powerful showerhead. There was a decent size desk and comfortable desk chair, as well as a so-so sitting chair. There's just barely enough room for all of this. It was difficult to find space for setting up the luggage rack.
The free breakfast buffet included make your own waffles as well as a pan of scrambled eggs and sausage patties. There were pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and beverages. Basic but satisfactory. There was a small sitting area in the lobby, free newspapers, and a computer for guests. The staff was friendly and helpful, very professional for a budget motel. For the price, I think this is the best motel in Gainesville.
