First, the front desk staff is very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Second, the bed/bedding/towels are of very good quality. Other than that it wasn't any more impressive or great than every other decent hotel I've ever been in. Yes there was a good sized refrigerator in the room, a microwave, a sink, and coffee maker but it was pretty average overall. I sincerely hope this isn't the #1 hotel in Gainesville because the next time I come to Gainesville I am definitely staying at another hotel even if I have to pay more. This hotel is fine if you're okay with feeling like you don't want to touch anything. I guess it's where the lower price comes from.
Also, to fellow iPad users, you cannot connect to the free wifi unless you call that 1-866 number on the card in your room and ask them to individually add your IP address to their router/server. And they said that process would take 30-45 minutes. And the card does NOT say that iPads require this process.
