“Good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

In town about 10 min from the interstate. Older inn but kept up well. I find the hotels away from the interstates are in better shape. Very good breakfast. Comfortable bed. I like to be able to back the car up to the room to unload.

I had to be in Gainesville several days in 2012. I stayed here the first time because it was where friends were staying. I was unsure about the place. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and inexpensive. The staff was very helpful. On subsequent stays, I always asked for the original rate and always got it. The location was convenient to Shands and the University.

Some of the rooms are newly remodeled and they all are very clean.

This Q Inn is old and it shows. The rooms, however, are very clean, fresh paint on the walls, and overall attractive, once you walk in the door. The beds are very comfortable and the A/C worked well and was quiet. Outside, the hotel age shows as well as the surrounding neighborhood. It is clear the Gainesville business world has abandoned this section of town. Nevertheless, the area seems to be safe and the motel grounds are kept clean.

The hotel lobby is very simple, with just one couch. I did not eat the breakfast but the food looked fresh with a good variety offered. Your typical hotel eggs, sausage, and waffles. The bullet proof glass on the lobby does not give you a warm fuzzy but I don't think the area is dangerous.

We probably won't stay here again just because the wife did not like the looks of the neighborhood. But, there really wasn't anything bad about the motel.

For the price, you really can't beat this hotel. The service was top notch. Sanjay at the front desk was incredibly friendly and very accommodating. The room shocked me with how clean everything was. It was literally spotless. The complimentary breakfast exceeded my expectations. They had a waffle maker to make fresh Belgian waffles, eggs, buscuits and gravy, cereal, oatmeal, etc. I have never seen a spread like that for a complimentary breakfast at any hotel, let alone a bargain hotel. I will definitely stay here again when I come to Gainesville.

I am in Gainesville a few times a year for both business and pleasure and I am quite familiar with the limited lodging options here, particularly if you want to be anywhere near downtown or the UF area. If you have a car your #1 choice should be the Paramount, if you want to park and walk your choices should be Hampton Inn then Holiday Inn. But if you have a car and have business downtown, this is the best price you will pay for a good room in the area. The Days Inn just a half block closer to UF is a dump, with plexiglass in the windows and a generally shabby condition. This place at least has a nice front desk staff (at least in the day), and a fairly well kept property (although the hot tub was out this week, which was a disappointment). Bottom line is that this is a decent price for a room in Gainesville and a really good location.

Room Tip: I've stayed in both floors in both smoking and non smoking rooms and found them all all remarkab...

What more could a frequent Gainesville traveler want? Many rooms are far enough from US 441 that you can't hear traffic, even with the AC fan off (see Helpful Room Tips, below). On our first stay we went for breakfast 15 minutes after closing time. Sanjay not only opened the door to the breakfast room, he made a fresh pot of coffee and offered to warm scrambled eggs and biscuits with gravy! Plan your Gainesville trip to avoid Gator football weekends and freshman arrival days, when all motels within a 15 mile radius are filled to capacity and room rates are much higher.

Room Tip: Rooms farther from US 441 are quieter -- numbers 1/213-15 on the south side and 1/216-18 on the nort...
