I will be traveling from Jacksonville fl to gainesville and I need a hotel to overnight for a short stay What hotel do I need to look for?
Depends on your budget. Do you want a Motel 6 level or a Hyatt level?
"What hotel do I need to look for?"
What kind of hotel are you looking for?
If you click on Gainsville Hotels on the left column you will find a list of hotels and reviews for them. As asked you need to let us know what type you are looking for. Low end hotels like Motel 6 and Super 8 will be the cheapest but are usually not the cleanest or in the nicer areas. Anything in the Marriott chain will be more expensive but very nice. In between is the Best Westerns, Quality Suites, Comfort Inns. Hilton being on the high end of all of them. Some will have free breakfast but read the fine print as free breaksfast is not always a hot breakfast. Cheaper hotels only serve cold cereal and stale bagels. Others will have waffles, some eggs & bacon or sausage. Price makes a huge difference on what you are supposedly getting for free.
And rates and vacancies may be greatly affected if there is a major athletic( especially football) or other special event happening at University of Florida for your dates. The hotels fill up fast at those times and rates are very high then. Maybe you can be specific about which dates?Edited: 10:48 pm, November 14, 2012
