“Average, but.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

On our drive south we stayed here overnight for a good rest.
The room was comfortable and quiet, but it seemed that the cleaning crew could do better in the corners and crevices. While not really bad it was noticeable if one looked.

The breakfast was what we expected.

When checking in we requested a lower floor so we could take things out of the car, and were told the only room (with the coupon book rates) were on the third floor. We thought it strange as we walked by two floors of darkened rooms.

6 weeks before we were to visit Gainesville we made our reservation online and called the hotel to guarantee the in-room fridge my wife needs for her meds. We got to the hotel at 2:30PM to check-in and immediately asked for a new room because ours was infested with sugar ants. When we got the new room, it did not have a fridge and while the hotel staff apologized, they made no effort to correct their mistake. They did offer the use of their office fridge, but my wife and I will have to be the shuttle service from one end of the hotel to the other, a block away.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the pool....ants

As other travelers have said, this is an older motel-style La Quinta with exterior doors rather than doors leading to an interior hallway. However, the interior of our room was nice and clean with a very comfortable bed, work space, and a flat screen HD TV. The staff was very helpful, and their Bright Start breakfast was delicious with waffles, eggs (hardboiled), yogurt, fresh fruit, and the other items that you typically find at most hotel breakfasts. The hotel is very conveniently located right off I-75 behind Red Lobster and within walking distance of the Oaks Mall and all of the restaurants available there. This hotel was very affordable and had a lot to offer in its price category.

I only stayed for one night at La Quinta and it was based on the room rate, which was very affordable. It has been many years since I stayed at a La Quinta so I wasn't expecting to have a exterior door to the outside. Staff was pretty friendly during both check-in and check-out. The room seemed rather old especially the bathroom but it was overall clean. It had a large tv and wireless was free. The wifi was hard to connect and rather slow so I had a difficult time doing some work in the room. Moving to the lobby didn't improve the connection speed. Location was convenient to the highways and there are plenty of restaurants in the area.
