Hotel's Favorite
I highly recommend staying at this hotel. I experienced car trouble on interstate 75 and had to pull off. The Best Western Gateway Grand Gainesville exceeded all of my expectations. The front desk was so helpful and friendly. The room was nice with small refrigerator and a Keurig coffee maker. I plan to make this hotel my place to spend the night when I’m on the road to and from Georgia.

My family and I enjoyed our stay, ALOT. Wife, and 2 teen aged sons and dog loved our stay. The location is central, the property is clean, updated and has everything needed. I enjoyed laps in the pool, the fitness room, the Gator Bar/Restaurant and the friendly staff. The beds were comfortable, the internet was strong(The kids loved that) and the location was close to springs and more. We hope to be back soon. Thank You

Clean, but you need to wipe down common areas for your own protection. Air conditioners seem to be the worst neglected during cleaning and the bathrooms were not pristine. The management addressed our concerns and we were happy with the resolution. The food was great from the bar and grill.

I had a reservation deal, went to the hotel, and first the front desk guy says his card reader does not read chip cards. Really. So he asked if he could have my card and enter it manually. I let him have it, but that seemed wrong. Then he told me that the card was rejected, and I would have to pay cash, which would be triple the price. I left. La Quinta accepted my card. no problem.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us this review. We here at the Gateway Grand have standard card reading machines that comply with all types of credit and/or debit cards and banks. In order to try and accommodate you, we attempted to manually input your card information as a way to show you that we were doing absolutely everything that we could to try and figure out the reason for your card being rejected. When giving the option to pay cash, this was simply another way for us to try and troubleshoot and accommodate you so that we could get you checked in and off to enjoy your stay here with us. We do not require any additional payment whatsoever if a guest chooses to pay for their stay in cash. We only ask in this case that the guest provides us with an extra $100 incidental hold at check in, which will be returned at check out time, provided that everything in the room has remained in good condition. We are deeply sorry to hear that this is how you felt about that situation and sincerely hope that you enjoyed your time in Gainesville.
