Great hotel to stay during a dive trip to the Florida springs with a medium sized group. We stayed 3 nights. Convenient to restaurants in the area and the dive sites. The Managment was very nice and accommodating. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

At check-in the room assigned was not ready. It was after 4:00 pm. They gave me another room and it smelled mildewy. There were bugs. The best thing about this location was that there was an IHOP across the street. I would not stay here again.

Clean and comfortable. Mini fridge microwave a clean shower and a big bed! Just right for me as a solo traveler j felt safe and slept like a baby. Will be back in October 🏈 I wish they allowed pets (with a deposit of course) only drawback. I have an old quiet dog I hate to leave alone-but not here... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are newly remodeled and finished our remodel late 2010. We now have new bed, new bedspreads, new carpets, new exterior, new interiors and offer a quaint breakfast selection. We still have our sparkling clean pool, and plenty of parking. We accommodate students, parents, truckers and travelers of all kinds, though, we are sorry we do not accept pets. We are conveniently located close to the Football stadium of the University of Florida, Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, Gainesville Airport, and Gainesville Racetrack (home of GatorNational). ... more   less
