“Super Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We found the owner very accommodating. The place was clean and the King Size bed was very comfortable. As it is right on the Suwannee River we put our fishing lines in but didn't get catch anything. Nice and quiet area. It is an older motel and comfortable for a decent price. Glad we were close to the Manatee Springs as we enjoyed going there.

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same, as it is drive-up to your room motel. River is behind the hotel.

This is a great place to stay and the owners are very friendly and accomodating. Wonderful location, with a great view of the famous Suwannee River. I would recomend this establishment to anyone i know. Good Value.

Didn't read reviews prior to reserving 2 nights in a king room. Small reunion with old friends, one friend lives in Old Town so we took the reunion to him this time. Not many places to stay in the area.
Friendly manager, beautiful location, downhill from there.
Unfortunately the review about being better off in your car in a Walmart parking lot is spot on.
Stayed one night, met up at the gathering at friends house the next day, got back to the room at 10:30 pm. Turned in the key and drove the 4 hours back home. Didn't even worry about my paid for 2nd night.
Lucky to still be married.
One other couple missed the whole deal, she threatened him with bodily harm I think if he didn't leave NOW!!!!!!
As far as "Old Florida," we love it. But c"mon, at least clean the place.

Great location, beautiful views, a piece of Old Florida that you thought had all but disappeared. Rooms are tidy, clean, management very helpful. Just minutes away from Springs and perfect spot for a riverside picnic. Good value.

We recently stayed in the motel part and had a king size bed. The room was immaculate and we were not bothered by any noise. (I had been worried about it being clean because of a few reviews). The owner could not have been friendlier. Unfortunately the weather was cool and we couldn't enjoy the wonderful back of the motel right on the river. We had a wonderful time at Manatee Springs State Park nearby and also recommend (thanks to the owner) the Lighthouse restaurant, a down home place with good food.

It was a refreshing treat to stay at a family run hotel at the Suwannee Gables in Old Town, Florida. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We enjoyed fishing and the beautiful FL weather. We dropped our lines in and had a bit of luck. We had two meals out at BBQ and I heard ABC Pizza had a good Greek salad. I hope to stay again soon at the Suwannee Gables Motel and Marina.

The outside of this place looks okay & on Trip Advisor there were good reviews, this was why we were going to stay there: Much to our horror when we checked into this motel the room was the dirtiest we had ever encountered: we left immediately. I do not think the beds had clean sheets & there was dirt all over the the toilet tank, toothpaste in the sink & I won't even try to say what the shower looked like. YUCKY
