There are several problems with this hotel, some unacceptable.
First the lack of information at time of booking and, the worst, lack of maintenance, cleanliness and supervision that results in roaches and smoking in the rooms.
We had to go to Gainesville for my step son's graduation. The hotels I would have stayed at were charging insultingly expensive rates so I was willing to go to a hotel that was not in my preferred list two nights.
So we booked at Value Place at Gainesville. Our surprises started at arrivale with the "no maid service" on weekends. No where in our reservation for two nights did it say that. But well, we let it go....
Next the smoking: even though it is supposedly a non smoking facility you can smell cigarrete smoking all over the place... Can you imagine what it is like to be woken up at 3 am because of the smell of cigarrete smoke in your room????? Well, every night we had that terrible experience..... The rrom, the bathroom, everything smelled of cigarrete smoke!
And the worst: we killed THREE ROACHES during our stay..... This is the result of accumulated dirt and lack of cleaning, maintenance and supervision.... No hotel should be allowed to charge $270 dollars for two nights when they offer roaches along side. Someone from the local authorities should make inspections and close it down until they solve all these issues.
I hope this review helps potential guests know what to expect so they can stay away and go somewhere else.
