Super 8 Gainesville
Ranked #21 of 46 Hotels in Gainesville
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The non-smoking rooms were next door to the smoking and the halls as well as our room stunk. Our bathroom had a wet towel hanging over the tub and only 1 clean towel available. Very disappointed. The breakfast however was decent but very limited seating. Also you had to park around the side and walk all the way to the front to get inside where the rooms were. Two people were sleeping on the sidewalk also.

We are displeased to hear that your stay was not satisfactory. We are shocked to know that you had used towels in your room as well as the fact that people were sleeping on the sidewalk. We will do our best to accommodate you in the future if you give us a second chance. We appreciate the feedback regardless.

We had an overnight stop here on the way to orlando. We was pleasantly surprised due to the cheap price we had paid for the room.
Check in and out was very quick and efficient
The room was decent sized, with a nice sized bathroom also. Location is very good there is a target just at the end of the road, and plenty of restaurants in the local area.
The only negative about the room was i think at one point it had been a smoking room, so had a strange smell, not really the end of the world for us though.

We had a very comfortable and clean Room! The bed was just right! We found the Breakfast room to be too small for number guests trying to use it. We did not stand in line very long, left for food elsewhere.The hotel was full the previous night!

We were expecting less before we got there. We were amaze with the stick on vinyl flooring. It made a look a like hardwood flooring. The room got brighter. The room was clean too. It had an open "closet," no walls surrounding it. It has a single serve coffee maker and tube TV. It has a desk that also serve as bedside table with an alarm clock. The pillows were thick and pluff up. Bed sheets were clean and nicely laid out. There were three things that kinda disappointing. There was only one and only shampoo for my family of four. It didn't come with any conditioner either and no micro/fridge. The last disappointment was more for convenience though. We would like to have our left overs warm for the following morning, breakfast and our drinks cold when we travel. It's only a short walk to a Waffle House and a gas station. Target and other stores are just across the major street. We did not try going in their swimming pool nor eat for their breakfast. I'd noticed though during check out that one guest was trying to make a waffle. The parking area is plentiful and quite open. Their Wi-Fi worked well in few hours but started messing up afterwards. We could no longer connect to the internet.
