“Game Day Weekend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Needed a hotel for my family (kids and grandparents), was able to get a connecting room so it was easy for all of us. The rooms were "ok"...the bathrooms were klnd of nasty- could use some updating/remodeling. The tubs were just dirty (not something I wanted to let me baby take a bath in). The room part was clean and nice (new flat screen TV) and the beds weere very comfy. It was close to campus, easy to get to--so overall a good stay. Alittle over priced- but it was game day weekend...so I was expecting to pay more. We enjoyed the game and then relaxed and went swimming at the hotel. Great customer service!

Stay two nights during LSU v UF game. Didn't expect too much but hard to find a room that weekend. Had to pay over $200 per night since the whole town was sold out for the game. Room smelled moldy. Linen felt damp. Ceilings were peeling. Stains on walls and curtains. Cleaning staff left debris in corners (paper, dust, etc).

Avoid this place if at all possible. Would have been better off driving back and forth to Ocala!

The staff is fabulous. The rooms clean,& updated. I would highly recommend any of the LaQuinta Inns. I have stayed in the Clearwater, FL location several times for pleasure. Orlando locations for business and pleasure. The Gainesville location was top-notch.

Basically, the hotel is dated and the room wasn't clean. The tub had mold in the tile grout and the bathroom wood door was noticably chipped. The carpet was dirty as were the bedspreads. It was obvious the room hadn't been updated or maintained properly in a long time. The room did have a newer flat screen tv and the continental breakfast was good. Those were the only good two things I can say about my stay there.

I have stayed here many times for business and except for a couple very minor things this is a great hotel. I usually don't stay at motels...where the doors open to the outside, this hotel is an exception because I feel safe here. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the location is great!

The staff was wonderful, the room seemed clean. By disappointment was in the fact that the room was damp. When I checked out the towels, they were paper thin and very scratchy, and they felt damp. I thought that was because laundry didn't completely dry them. Then I went to plug in my computer...there are NO convenient outlets for phones, pads, or computers...so as I was crawling under the desk to plug in my computer, my knees were wet (big spots on my jeans). To make uncomfortable to worse, the bed and pillows were damp. I reported it to staff, nobody was surprised. So this is an issue that is not getting fixed. NO BUGS, NO BAD SMELLS, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. The staff is not at fault for what the owners do not want to fix. We traveled with our dog and bird, staff went out of their way to make our stay a welcome stay. They made us feel like the favorite relatives. Thank you staff! I hope the hotel dries out before the mildew sets in.
