There was a Crack in the tub, the towel rack was loose and fell off the wall when removing the towel, sink was totally clogged and the door outside door had about a 11/2 inch gap where you could see to the outside. The noise from a late check in woke everyone, when reported to the desk (1:30 am) nothing...

We booked this room for graduation weekend 6 months ahead and it was really all that was left in Gainesville due to graduation. The room was very small. The 2 double beds were each pushed up against the walls so only 1 person could get off the bed on the side. The bedding was dated and the towels were thin...

Couldn't find a real room so we did the Motel 6. Normal lodging is Red Roof so we're not comparing this to the Embassy Suites. The bed creaked, the room smelled and the 'update' was a downgrade. The only good thing was quick access to I-75.

My friend and I booked this hotel for a football game b/c it was one of the only ones still available - we quickly found out there was a reason for that. I have never stayed anywhere so disgusting in my life. The bedspreads had cigarette burns on them (even though it was a nonsmoking room) and were dirty, the...

Easy on and off the Interstate 75. Very reasonable rate and pet friendly at no charge. Experienced front desk provided smooth efficient check-in. It is near plenty of restaurants and places to see. It was one of the better Motel 6 properties.

There were 2 events in the area, I had already stopped at 2 motels and no other rooms were available. I was glad to have a place to stay for the night.

I just spend 2 nights this last weekend. The hotel desk was helpful and friendly. THe cleaning people provided extra towels on request with good humor. The hotel is not an upper end hotel so the three star rating was not a five star for the following reasons. The negatives 1) The bahtroomshower was made from fiberglass and had been...

I have stayed at this hotel 5-6 times over the years for weekend trips to see the Gators play. I have stayed here for 2 reasons the price and because they are pet friendly. Like they say you get what you pay for. It is pretty rundown even though they did update rooms a year or so ago. If your...

First off the owner was very pleasant. Anytime there was a problem he attended to it right away. Housekeepers were helpful and friendly and location is great. Unfortunately they have a front desk clerk on a power trip. Incredibly rude, I stayed here with my girlfriend whom the whole staff knew, and was sexists to her. Not allowing her to...
