I had to go to the school board building in Dixie County and arrived there in the evening. I passed a Quality Inn, because I thought it was too far from my destination. After passing a couple old style roadside motels, when I saw the Suwanee Gables Motel, I figured I had better stop for the night. It too was... More

I love this place!!! Visited here 33 years ago, and I loved it then. Very homely. Love the river access. Local restaurants are excellent. Looking forward to visiting Suwannee Gables Motel again. The management personnel is friendly. They are currently renovating their rooms with French doors and decks for each room.

Okay, so I really hate reading negative reviews because I know I some people are just hard to please. I am not. I saw this was an old hotel so I expected it to be dated and, it was. I also spoke with the owner before I booked to ask him a few questions. I saw he had a boat... More

Good morning and thanks for giving me the opportunity to set things straight. If you look at your receipt,the room rate was 79.99 and not $87.00 for a party of two, for additional person there is a fee of $12.00 . For the boat ramp use there is a $15.00 fee which was confirmed at the time of check in... More

It was a treat to go back in time. This is a clean with cold A/C motel with 4 acres right on the Suwannee river. I went down and hung out on the boardwalk at night and in the early morning for about an hour each and let my dog run free down there since no one was around, or... More

Made reservations for a two double bed room for 80 per night. When I got there that roombwas not available. Could only give king room with a charge of 130. Needless to say I did not stay but drove on.

While this hotel is considered "Old Florida", it needs some major updating. Looks like some renovating started years back but never finished. There is junk all over the back property. We chose this property because of the boat launch. The bed comforter's didn't appear to have been changed in years. Made us very uncomfortable. It's a shame, this is the... More

The location of the motel is perfect but the motel is nasty! We arrived Friday evening to find the windows had been left open in our room & it was about 97 degrees outside. Needless to say there were insects inside our room. It took all night for the room to cool down. The room was disgusting, very old and... More

Thank you for the critical review.The windows are kept open only during the morning when housekeeping is being conducted and the cross ventilation helps freshen up the room.The windows also have built in screens and they prevent any insects from coming in .We are remodeling all the rooms as you witnessed.

Clean room, nice swimming pool, bbq area out back and fishing off the dock.. Friendly staff, Nice and quiet only thing it was missing was breakfast. Nice little place instead of a big hotel with hundreds of people.
