My husband and I were working in Gainesville for the week. We didn't have many hotel choices under our "approved" hotel list with our company. This hotel was on the list and we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the staff and accommodations were. Upon check-in we decided to go look at our room before unpacking our car just to make sure we wanted to stay here. The room was just a normal size hotel room - not to small or very big but sufficient for the two of us. It was clean and included a refrigerator and microwave. Lexi, the desk clerk who checked us in was just a bubbly friendly gal. She let us know that Waldo is a speed trap and to watch our speed and that the town shuts down early at night so if we wanted to get gas or something to eat we needed to do it before 9:00 or 10:00 at night. She was right on the money! We could look out our window any time of the day and see a policeman who had somebody pulled over. There was ALWAYS a policeman running radar as you entered the town. We left for work at 4:00 am and there was a policeman sitting in the median. Just watch your speed coming through town.
The hotel had a pool with 2 grills which we utilized one evening when we invited friends over for a BBQ. We were chased inside by the rain but we were able to set up our "party" in the breakfast room and we had a lovely time! There were not too many people staying at the hotel so it was quiet all week. With friendly staff, clean accommodations and excellent price range this is definitely somewhere I would stay again.
On a side note I can't comment on the free breakfast because we left for work too early every day. They did have yogurt in a refrigerator though which we grabbed every morning on our way out the door.
