This hotel needs serious updating and repairs. Bathtub was chipped and painted, needs regrout and caulking. Shower curtain smelled like mildew. Walls are nasty, celing been repaired many times, carpet nasty. Overall this room was distgusting! Nice flat screen TV and fair continental breakfast. Muffins were like rocks. Lobby is nicer than rooms

Dear Eliwett

Regretfully I must agree that we are an older Hotel, nearly 31 years old now. However, if you will allow me to invite you back in about 90 days when we are finished with all of the updating I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Many of the areas you referred to are the same ones that we are working on right now. We are replacing the carpet in all of the rooms, new drapes and soft goods adding refrigerators in all rooms and much more. Add this to the nice flat screen TV’s, free breakfast and great service and you end up with not a “Good Value” but a “Great Value” in Gainesville.

Recently remodeled. A little far from the action in downtown and the university, but very convenient to everything. Within walking distance of several restaurants.

Staying at the Baymont Inn in Gainesville has been one of the most accurate decisions I’ve taken when choosing lodging. I was scheduled to stay in town for a period of time and looked up many lodging options in town. Decided to stay at the Baymont Inn and Suites because the location was a perfect fit for my trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the location was not the only treat at this place. I travel with my 4lb Yorkshire Terrier and was provided with a great room with easy access to walk her. While the room was near by a freeway once I shut the door there was little to no noise I could perceive from outside. All the amenities included in the room such as small fridge, coffee maker, etc were in great condition. The dehumidifier in the room gave it extra comfort. I must emphasize the amazing hotel staff starting with the General Manager James Montgomery who takes the extra mile to resolve any issues travelers may have during their stay. He is very professional, nice, and courteous. I had to extend my stay with a short notice and he accommodated every single one of my requests even when the hotel was completely booked during the weekends. Thanks James!. The front desk staff was very professional and nice as well, Nadine, Lynn, Troy, Chris and Cameron….. Always greeted everyone with a smile on their faces and fulfilled any requests I had. Thanks to all of them as well! Also to be highlighted is the excellent housekeeping. The room was always clean to perfection and organized. Must highlight the awesome service received from “Bella” who was the housekeeper during my stay. She took the extra steps to make my stay the most comfortable and maintained the room in mint condition. Her attention to detail is amazing and does her job very well. Last but not least should mention that the hotel in general is in great shape. A very clean pool, small but well equipped gym, convenient laundry room, coffee and tea available 24/7 and their complimentary breakfast had great variety of treats.
All in all a great experience in a great hotel. I fully recommend it.

Dearest Marianne

It is not often that we get to interact with our guests, at such a cherished level, at a Select Service Hotel. Congratulations on finding the perfect house. We know you will enjoy living here in Gainesville. Please know that when your friends come to visit, if you don’t want to put them up at your house they will always be welcome at “our house” the Baymont Inn. The entire staff will miss you and wish you luck in your new endeavors.
