This was our first stay at this Best Western and found it to be perfect for us. The room was quiet and comfortable. We'll be back. We didn't have a chance to use the pool but the pool area was large and inviting. We particularly appreciate the omelet option at breakfast. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

My recent stay at the Best Western Grand was outstanding. The grounds, rooms, and associated facilities were clean and well-maintained; the bed was comfortable; and the rooms had helpful amenities (breakfast bar, fridge, etc.). Everything worked the way it was supposed to, except my phone's alarm because I slept so soundly, I slept through the alarm. But what made my...

Thank you for sharing your experience of at the BEST WESTERN Gateway Grand. I am deeply sorry for your inconvenience.

We just happened upon this BEAUTIFUL Best Western right off the Interstate in Gainesville FL. The setting is lush, the exterior is tropical, and the interior is a cut above. Staff were extremely cordial & ready to assist. The complimentary breakfast buffet offered individually-made omelettes for $3. I would strongly recommend this location ($159).

We arrived after a long night and day of driving and were very pleased with this hotel and its amenities. Nice room with a king-sized bed and a wall half-way across the room to separate the bed from the living area that included a sofa-bed.

I booked a room for 3 nights using Best Western International website.
