I stay once or twice a month at the Best Western Gateway Grand in Gainesville. It is one of the more newer hotels in the area with excellent access to the highway. The rooms are fairly spacious and the staff is friendly. There is an onsite restaurant (Gator's Den and Sports Bar) which is pretty good, but you have to go outside to get to it. The rooms are very clean and my stay there has always been very good. I wish they had an onsite market for soda's and snacks, but there is a Dunkin Donuts on the corner, which is easy to get to. I also like that they have coffee available all night along with fresh cookies. Nice touch. I recommend this as a place to stay if you are in the area.

The hotel provided a safe, quiet room that was fully appointed. Room had a suite look to it with a full wall separating the living area and bed. All items in the room worked correctly and the internet worked very well. No road noise.

Thank you for your comments. The hotel was made with cement walls so noise is never a complaint we receive. I am glad your visit was comfortable in our king deluxe room. We also have hot tub suites and a 3 room presidential suite for a luxury stay. We hope you visit us on your next trip to Gainesville.

The hotel is in a great location next to the Harly Davidson shop with a nice sports bar connected so if you are traveling you will not have to leave the property for any reason. If I have reason to travel in the area again I will be staying at this hotel.

Thanks for the great comments. Besides being near the Harley shop we also have a Harley discount for Harley bike owners. It is available on our central reservations or at our front desk.

Having spent a long day of travel we looked forward to an evening cocktail and a quiet evening. We made the reservation at this BW+ and expected a quality experience. This hotel exceeded our expectations - it was quiet, extremely clean and the staff was wonderful. Rooms had the finest bedding that we have enjoyed and they were fully equipped. If you are in the area this is the place to stay.

Stayed here for 4 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. Had a wonderful time in Gainesville area in large part due to the pleasant experience of staying here. The room was clean, comfortable, and did not notice any intruding sounds from other rooms or outside hotel despite that it was a full house over the holiday with adults, kids, and dogs. The hotel staff managed the packed hotel calmly and cooly from all hotel stations. Breakfast was well organized even with every table full and more people arriving to fill every vacated table. I liked that you could pay $3 and get scrambled eggs or an omlette cooked to order in addition to the other free offerings which include Jimmy Dean microwaveable sausage muffins. Its a convenient location in a good neighborhood with a good restaurant named Wahoo across the street. I also liked the bar attached to hotel which was nice for a nightcap or two after the car was put away for the night. 4 nights, no complaints about anything. Would stay here next time I come to Gainesville.

Thanks for the comments. It's always great to hear that our staff was able to work well in busy conditions. I will pass along your comments to all department managers to share with their staff. We do receive a lot of compliments on our made to order omelets. I am glad you enjoyed the breakfast here at the Gateway Grand. Have an Great New Year.
