“Convienent to UF and local shopping”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I stayed here twice in the last week, and the hotel is of average quality, comfortable, and it includes a typical hotel breakfast. I was late getting to the hotel, and the front desk quickly checked me in, and even recognized me and gave me the same rate when I returned a few days later.

Since 2005, I have had kids in school at UF in Gainesville. This is my go-to place to stay whenever I visit my kids. Staff are very friendly and responsive. Free breakfast, wi-fi, clean rooms, and comfy beds--what more do I need? A great value!!

We stopped here on our way to southwest Florida. The motel is dog friendly which suited our needs for this trip. When my husband went in to check in, he (and another guest also trying to check in) could not,find anyone to check them in. They looked around for about five minutes and the representative finally appeared. There was evidently only one person available and she had to assist a guest to their room. The room was clean, but ...... The decor was old and tired. The bathroom looked old and definitely in need of redoing. The headset of our house phone had a loose connection. We had a need to call the front desk twice and neither call could we be heard. We did report this to the person on duty but nothing was done to rectify the situation. We asked for a room away from the freeway; we were given a room very close to the freeway. Room was noisy. Average at best.

Room Tip: Requesting didn't help us, so ...........

Front desk representative was nice and prompt at getting us checked in. We had room 107, which is the bottom floor, closest room to the door for the lobby for breakfast. I should have thought about the location of the room and asked for another before moving our stuff in, but hindsight is 20-20. The room was clean and spacious, with a King sized bed, an armchair, and table with two chairs. Everything was fine until breakfast started. Starting around 6:30-7am we were awoken by a loud thumping noise, sounding like it was coming from above us. We thought it was either the room upstairs opening their door and letting it slam shut, or that a kid was bouncing a ball. It kept happening often enough that I decided it wasn't either of those things, because who would be opening and shutting their door that often (it was literally every 5 seconds or so). This continued (and we lay awake without sleep) until we got up for breakfast around 8:30. When we opened the door to the lobby we realized when it shut behind us, what we had been hearing this whole time. The door slammed every time someone had come in and out of the door for breakfast. You would think they would put a dampener or something on it to prevent it from slamming so hard (the doors to the room have them on them, so they don't slam, so why can't this one? Especially when it's in use so much...) When you're trying to sleep and every five or ten seconds something slams hard enough to make the picture on the wall vibrate, you end up wanting to kill the next person who goes out the door. This needs to be fixed asap. I paid the same price as others who got a good night's sleep, further from the door. Also, all of the patrons walking by our window chatting en route to breakfast was also annoying.

Other than the lack of sleep from other patrons and slamming doors, the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was included, though a little dull (only dry cereal or waffles were offered, no eggs or anything besides sweet stuff). I'd stay here again if I knew my room was going to be on the third floor at the back of the hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid room 107 if you want to sleep. The lobby door next to the room slams shut every time someone g...
