HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE - The stay was 7/23/2016. This was an extremely disappointing experience. I do NOT understand how HOTELS.COM is affiliated with such a regrettable bad condition hotel. The bathroom is full of mold, the room was dirty and smelled mildew. There were dirty socks and underwear from previous guests in the room. I was not able to shower due... More

We chose this motel because it was cheap. Older motels like this tend to have huge rooms, but dated, which I don't mind. If you could pick this up and put it in Palm Springs you could charge $150 per night. The wi-fi worked fine, the room was clean, but best of all, it had a door on both sides... More

Because of a minor bike problem I stayed here with a friend as it was one of the first hotels coming into Gainesville. We rented 2 rooms charged to each of our cards. We both were double billed. I called the hotel; no answer. AMEX fixed it.

Where to begin. There was a wasp in the room, the towels had "Knights inn" write in sharpie on them as if people were going to steal them, the bathroom had mold, the carpets were stained with I could only assume was blood, and the neighbors were most likely drug dealers. This place is not safe, you need to believe... More

My wife and I were exhausted after spending 12 hours on the road and the rate seemed good, and that's where the "GOOD" ends. The room smelled horrible, holes in the sheets and stains on the sheets so we asked for another room. We got it. It was worse. Dead roaches all over the floor and in the bathtub, (one... More

We chose this hotel for proximity to the event we were attending. At first glance the room looked average. Clean. Bedding OK. Bathroom better than expected. But there was a big crack in the sliding glass doors -- mended with clear packing tape. The lock on the sliders was broken, the door held closed and locked with a metal bar.... More

Stayed here the weekend for Fest last year (annual punk/indie/emo/hardcore festival). So, I guess I should say going in that I am not one to splurge on a place to crash after being out and about all day/night. What can I say? It is a cheap hotel, it gets the job done. If you are fussy about smoking, decor, atmosphere,... More

I mistakenly booked this hotel and could not cancel the reservation. I thought I was booking a different hotel.I rate this "hotel" at the very bottom of the list. It's one positive is the female morning clerk. Very pleasant and nice, but could not make-up for the sordid condition of the room. It was very musky, carpets looked worn and... More

If we hadn't had plans already made to be meeting friends we would have walked out on this Motel. First the clerk tries to tell me I have two rooms reserved ... but as a courteous she'll correct (whatever why would I need two). Then she tells us we have to plug in things we want to use .... one... More

Old, dilapidated, scary motel. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room but it reeked in stale cigarette smoke. I am highly allergic to cigarette smoke so I had a sick headache & woke up with my face swollen. The sheets & pillowcases appeared to be clean but I was afraid to look at the mattress. I was also afraid... More
