“Inexpensive but friendly and clean”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Intrigued by the motel name, decided to look at the facility and a room to see if worthy of spending a night. From the moment you enter the lobby, you feel like the staff is interested in you and your needs--very friendly and professional. Was shown a non-smoking room and it was clean throughout, newer carpet, bedding, vanity & shower area. Also had a microwave and refrigerator. Direct TV, which may not fit your viewing needs. Negotiated the rate and settled in. Minor things: no luggage rack and drinking glasses, which were immediately taken care of with apologies. Clock didn't work--no biggie. Microwave unplugged--no one knew why. Nice things: the staff--always helpful and friendly. Raised shower arm so you don't have to stoop to wash your head. Very quiet room. On premises maintenance supervisor who also handled night security so we felt very secure. Continental breakfast of coffee, juice drink, pastries--simple but that's all we wanted.

Room Tip: Rooms facing pool were quieter but no kids staying at this time.

Well, there is some construction right near the entrance, after I finally found the entrance, the front desk clerk was very friendly, I had a coupon and she took it no problem, asked for a wake up call, again no problem, the room needed a better cleaning, I stayed alone on this trip and felt safe, the bed was the great, shower hot, water pressure great! Did not have the breakfast just coffee, check out was smooth and a different clerk, but friendly just the same. Will definately stay again. They are under new management, spoke with them about the cleaning staff, (hey if you don't mention, they can't fix, so don't complain), I will write another review next month as I go to Gainesville once a month and get back to you.

Room Tip: My room was closest to the interstate, never heard any traffic, quiet I have only stayed the one tim...

We were only going to be sleeping in the room for a few hours so we weren't too picky. The staff were beyond pleasant and helpful! The guy running the place gave us ideas of things to do, he called within 10 minutes of us getting in our room to see if it was ok, and he let us check out 2 hours late at no additional charge. Yes, the hotel is dated and isn't exactly luxury, (actually it looks kind of sketchy at first) but the other guests were friendly, the room was incredibly clean, and we had a comfy bed to sleep in. If we plan another night out in Gainesville and need a place to rest our heads for a few hours, we would stay again. The guy at the front desk was the biggest win for this place.

The room and bathroom were clean and decorated nicely but some overall renovation such as painting the woodwork, bathroom door and baseboards etc. needs to be done. The bed was comfortable. The biggest problem was the heating/air conditioning unit. It needs to be replaced. It screeched and shook when we turned on the air and the compressor didn't kick in for quite awhile. Once it shut off and then turned back on, we went through all the noise again. We cooled the room before we went to bed because we never would have been able to sleep if it was running. The "deluxe breakfast" turned out to be pastries and apple juice, no fruit, no O.J. Pool area is very nice.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was quiet on the pool side.

This was the most disgusting hotel. The room was old, outdated, paint chipping off of bathroom vanity, tub and shower. It wasn't just chipping, it had rubbed completely off. Someone had painted and painted over the drain release, sign on door. Two and three colored paint was present on walls. The remote control didn't work for the tv. The telephone in the room did not work. It just buzzed in your ear. The bathroom was dirty and the toilet tissue holder disgustingly dirty. Do not stay there. The sign indicated that it was "Under New Management." It needs to be managed, cleaned and re-constructed.

This was one of the best motels for the value we stayed in on our trip from Canada to Florida. Would highly recommend. The price was only $40 for the night. The room was clean, large and had a microwave and fridge.
Hard to locate but well worth the effort.

It's a Motel for sure...stale scent...bed was right next to heater and bed dressing had cigarette holes and stains. Good for one night stays in between long trips....good right across the street and pet friendly...and the tub is pretty clean.
