This LaQuinta is in desperate need of a makeover. Room needed some handyman fixing and did not appear overly clean. The hotel exterior also need a fresh coat of paint. And the breakfast offered was very l8 iced, unlike other LaQuinta Hotels selections. Very disappointed overall.

It may not be noticeable from the Main highway, but it definately stands out! If you drive by it, you will miss the great attention given by the courteous staff. This pet friendly hotel takes great care in making you feel at home. Don't miss it next time you are in Gainesville.

How awful was it? Let me count the ways: 1. We were there for seven nights, which means there were six days on which we came back to the room following a day away. Of that six days, our room was not made up on three days. All we got was a "so sorry" from the night clerk.
