we stay here on our trip down south to Daytona Beach. This hotel was very clean. The staff was very friendly. It's right across the street from the Harley store which was a plus for us since we ride! But it was closed. Oh well The only thing wrong was the laundry room(washer broken) but they refuned our money back. Thanks

Thanks so much for your feedback about your recent stay! Being right across the street from the Harley Davidson, we love it when rider's stop in for a stay. The shop is open Tuesday through Sunday, so if you're next trip through Gainesville is flexible, make a point to stop by on one of those days. We'll be glad to have you back!

For the past 4 years we have used this hotel to accommodate our out of town guests when they visit our business. It is convenient, clean, well appointed and favorably priced. Whenever people ask me where to stay in Gainesville, this is the first place I recommend. Of the dozens of guests we have put here, everyone of them has had good comments. The most recent one was no exception.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus in Gainesville Florida. The room was very comfortable and the pool was fantastic. We really enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your recent stay. All winter long we look forward to summer, when guests get to enjoy all the hard work our landscaping team does on the pool deck! Whether you're enjoying the sun in one of our chaise lounges or relaxing in the shade of our three gazebos, the BEST WESTERN Gateway Grand is the place to be for those hot summer days!

The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean overall. The hotel is conveniently located off the interstate and is close to restaurants and grocery stores. I plan to stay at this hotel again when I return to Gainesville.

I felt safe at this hotel. Was traveling alone to meet family. Everything was nice and it was an enjoyable stay. This Best Western was nicer than many I have stayed at while traveling. When I stepped out of my room, I could see the front desk and the dining area. Typical breakfast items were served. It was easy to get on and off the interstate from this location. Didn't hear any noises that prevented a good night's rest. There's a restaurant on site but I didn't visit it. Outside pool area was pretty.

We're fortunate to be located directly off of I-75, while being situated in such a way that we never have to worry about noise from the interstate. We hope you have a chance to visit our Gators Den Sports Grill during your next visit!

This hotel was perfectly fine. Falls squarely within expectations for a Best Western Plus -- clean rooms and pleasant staff. I was a little annoyed that you had to walk outside to access the hotel bar/restaurant because mosquitos love Florida (and me) in the evenings.
Breakfast in the morning made the trip -- they served a cinnamon bun that was worth writing home about, or at least writing on Trip Advisor about. Yummy!

Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay! We're always looking to ensure that we've got a wide selection to choose from in our free deluxe continental breakfast and I'm glad the cinnamon buns were a hit!

While our Gators Den Sports Grill is just a short walk from the lobby, I understand that sometimes you just want to stay indoors and beat the heat. To make things easier for our guests, we offer our full menu through room service! Feel free to relax in your room and have a delicious meal brought to you the next time you're here!

Had our Grandson's wedding reception here and it was great for us and that they allow a pet since we had no place to leave him with all of the family at the wedding. The food that was offered at the reception was excellent and the staff was very helpful at the reception and the hotel.
