“Basic, Adequate, Inexpensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Basic accomodations that are clean and well-maintained with friendly and helpful staff. The suburban location is convenient to shopping and chain restaurants. There are insufficient electrical outlets in rooms; plugging in a laptop or phone charger requires unplugging the alarm clock or a lamp. Slow wi-fi. The free breakfast is mostly bread -- waffles, cereal, pastries, bagels and toast. A small amount of fruit (apples) and yoghurt (a single flavor) is available. If you want a better breakfast, walk to the nearby Waffle House instead.

Dear beerwriter,

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts. Guests like you help us make continuous improvements. Currently, We are working on buying lamps with outlets. We have invested in some of the rooms and have been updated with the new light fixture. The internet is also getting changed out to a higher speed.

We hope you come back and see us to experience our new internet that will be coming soon.

Thanks,

Tejal Patel

Sadly, the night clerk was very nice, but misinformed about how to handle credit cards. The next day the manager was really nasty and unprofessional, even though I pointed out to her that it was not my fault they didn't charge the card correctly, that she (the manager) should have trained her people better. So instead of staying 3 nights, I checked out after one.

Super 8 Gainesville is just off I-75 at Archer Road in SW Gainesville. It is near restaurants, markets, shops, and, best of all, the new Trader Joe's. It is in good condition, clean, and has convenient parking. It has a very small lounge and breakfast area. The breakfast is very basic.
Not fancy, but adequate.
