“Super 8 Gainesville,Fl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We stayed at Super 8 in Gainesville, Fl and the staff was very pleasant when we arrived until the time we left. Our stay was for 10 days. Housekeeping did an excellent job in cleaning the rooms and were very cheerful and hardworking.( You don't see that too often) Our rm was on the 3rd floor, NS room with ref/.micro. We liked it for it had laminate flooring. There was no smoke smells in the room. We did get our exercise for there was no elevator. We would definitely recommend staying there:)

Room Tip: 3rd floor NS rm 321 has laminate flooring I think there were only 2 rms that did. Nice rm,quiet.

My stay here at Super 8 in Gainesville was very enjoyable. The front desk staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. There was complimentary wireless internet and continental breakfast. The room did look like it had been recently updated with new hardwood floors. One thing I should mention that is somewhat outside of the hotel's control is the noise from the highway. It is right near I-75, and if you are sensitive to noises, the traffic may be bothersome. In that case, a room further from the highway may be better.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the highway are probably quieter.

I've been staying in Super8 for couple nights and I did not have a feeling that I was staying at the hotel. Nowadays it is very hard to find not expensive and at the same time nice and clean hotel. But I found it and the name of this hotel is the Super 8!!!!!!! The location is great, very quiet and peaceful place. Front desk was very polite, friendly and helpful. Though there's no elevator but staff immediately solved this problem and helped me with my bags. My room was perfect clean and I am very thankful for making me happy and feeling comfortable. Thank you for treating me like a special guest and see you soon...

Room Tip: great location, super clean room, friendly staff, free wi-fi and breakfast

Stayed at this expensive and mold.smelling joke of motel this summer. Staff was young and unexperienced, and sighed even as they saw us aproach the counter. (I guess its much more fun to play with your phone than help guest or solving problems)

there is no elevator so you have to litterally pull your bags up the narrow och steep stairway. Ignored by the staff that suddenly fled behind the counter? You got it!

the room smelled like smoke and mold, the bed was old and hard as a rock. bathroom was tiny and the hot water dissapered almost as fast as the staff facing a problem

when I previously posted my review I gave it the grade "poor". But somehow, this motel has negatived my review and claimed that its not them and that I have reviewed the wrong motel - and in a mysterious way my review has dissapered! But belive me folks, I would not forget a motel as lousy as this one!

Gainesville is really nice but this motel was truly a mess - from the minute I walked in there ....

The rate was great. The location didn't matter much because I was just sleeping there between destinations. The room was clean, and there was a coffee pot for the morning. The girl at the front desk was friendly when I checked in, and the check out process was just fine.

I was actually very surprised with the condition of the room. I had a non-smoking room and the hallway did smell of smoke. I will be cautious of motels that allow pets to stay next time though. I think the room we had had a pet in it before because there were a few hairs in the bathtub. Overall though, I will stay again if I don't have any other choice.

Thanks for the input. After reading the reviews, the hotel management is thinking of designating floors that are non-smoking. We are also looking into renovations...we hope let us know what you think. Have a Happy Holiday!
