This is a small property very conveniently located in Gainesville. We just stayed for one night to visit my son who attends the University. We arrived early and were told that check in was not until 2pm. We were offered the option of waiting in the lobby (which is very small and not really inviting) or come back later. We opted to come back later.
At 2 pm we arrived back at the property, the woman at the front desk asked the maintenance man to check and see if our room was ready. They were running late because they were short a housekeeper. Lo and behold we were told it would be about another 1/2 hour until we could check in - however, that estimate turned out to be incorrect and we only had to wait about ten minutes.
We were pleasantly suprised by the room. It was clean and very cool. The A/C unit was great. We had a small fridge and microwave. We were on the second floor (no elevator), but only had one bag each since it was just an overnight stay.
I have to say that it was quiet and we slept soundly. The only dirt we found in the room was long red hair on the wall of the bathtub. Everything else was fine.
Breakfast is the usual "free" breakfast with waffles, etc. Not an attractive eating area right in the lobby, but serviceable.
We will keep this place on our short list when we go back to Gainesville. You can tell that the staff really cares about what they do. It was hospitalilty at it's best.
Thanks for everything.
