At 4:00 PM it took nearly 1/2 hour to even begin to check in to my non smoking room which I never even got, I had to take another room which was terribly hot upon entry due to the air being turned off...the bathroom was not nearly clean (I couldn't even bring myself to shower there), the counter outside the...

It is a no frills place. It was clean, quiet, and good for a night. Beds were comfortable and plenty of pillows. Sure beats the price of a place in Gainesville, but still not too far away. Not a lot of things nearby, but there is a grocery store, gas, and some fast food nearby. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We travel a lot for work and pleasure and this is our first stay in a Choice Hotel, Econolodge. I must start by saying that the young man at the counter was helpful and courteous. Our room stunk like smoke, mold and body odor and had obviously not been cleaned for the filth on the floors, windows, bedding, bathroom and... More

I booked this hotel for work because best price for the weekend for a home game in Gainesville. I found the staff delightful especially Jayne and Hilda. They were always pleasant and went above board to help customers. The room was very large with a large bathroom. The mattress was wonderful with ex-large pillows. The room and property where very...

I was on an impromptu motorcycle trip when caught by a (several) heavy rainstorms. Usually I live by the rule "life is too short for cheap hotels"...but hey..this was an adventure. Econo lodge it was! For 75.00 I got a filthy room, a "continental breakfast" that was laughable- seriously laughable- and had to park my bike in the downpour. This... More

I stayed in this motel last night prior to going to Itchetucknee Springs today. The front desk staff were consistently helpful and kind, gave several good suggestions for the area. Our room was old and fairly dirty. The sheets were threadbare but did appear to be clean. It appeared our room had not been used in quite some time. The... More

Service was GREAT....literally could not have been friendlier. The room smelled horrible, the floor was filthy, the drapes were dirty and there were poop stains on the toilet. The beds were very comfortable. The price of the room was extremely reasonable and the location was perfect. The hotel is in pretty good shape and parking is very easy and convenient.... More
