“Very Clean”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

The room was a little dated, but was very cleaned. Breakfast was very good. The price for the room was very good. The front staff was very nice and freindly. The rooms air conditioner was a tad loud but it kept the room nice and warm, Over all a great value for your money.

This motel is arguably the best dollar value in Gainesville. The property is beautifully maintained, the rooms are spacious, attractive, comfortable are really clean. Upon check-in there was a mix up with the reservation, so the desk staff moved me to an upgrade immediately at no change in rate. Jess, the front desk manager was friendly, efficient, and took a genuine interest in making my stay pleasant and comfortable. This facility exceeded my expectations!

Drove up for the Petit Lemans recently and found this place. This hotel isn't brand new, but it's like a classic car that has been kept up, like a hotel should be.
The rooms in the courtyard are very nice; and being able to sit outside and enjoy the Georgia weather was pleasant. The amenities are that of a modern hotel, Flat-screen tv, Pillow-top mattresses,wifi access.. yet there is a touch of class and character given by the age of the property.
The hot breakfast was a plus, but the breakfast area got pretty crowded.They should look into additional seating in this area. The selection of nearby restaurants was pretty good, and I was only minutes from Lakeshore Mall, movie theater, and parks.
All and all, this hotel is a solid A.. with a few minor tweaks it could easily be an A+

Room Tip: Nicer amenities in the Poolside rooms.

I stayed here last weekend for Petit le Mans. I was treated very well by the staff, they were helpful with answering any questions or taking care of requests I had. Breakfast was delicious and the property was well maintained. I will definitely stay here next year and recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

A friend and I just stayed at this hotel. We decided at the last minute to go to the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. I just checked their rates for Friday night of next week, one week after our stay and the rate is $63...we paid $109, before tax and everything else. We were 16 miles from the track...slightly over charged. When we walked into the room we both said "what's that smell". Don't know what it was but it was like they were trying to cover up another smell. We did notice multiple rooms where the people had one or more dogs with them...just wondering!!?? Water pressure in sink and shower were poor. Also when I booked the room my reservation said poolside but we didn't get poolside.
When we went to the drink machine they were out of everything but Coke. We went to the front desk to ask about the ice machine, location, and tell them they were out of drinks. A gentleman behind the desk said he had some Sprite and would sell us a bottle at $2.00, the cost from the machine. Typically I've paid 75 cents to a dollar for that size drink at other hotels. Doubt if I would stay here again.

Dear Guest,

We appreciate the feedback. Our rate for the weekend of races and fall festivals had been $109 from the beginning of the 2013. I am sorry if you have some confusion with the rates at your end.

The soda machines are not serviced by us. It was reported that we were out of some sodas so I went out of the way to buy some and have the soda in stock behind the front desk as to not cause a hassle to our guests. The price we were charging for the soda bottle $2.00 was in line with what the vending machines charge.

We hope that you give us an opportunity to serve you in the future.

Sincerely Yours,

Jay Singh

My stay was very pleasant, the front desk was accommodating and the breakfast a great deal. Much more then what I expected. When I needed directions the lady was more than happy to help and even pointed out a couple places that I might be interested in seeing. It's very close to everything which was nice, and I enjoyed the pool, immensely. Overall I would stay here again in a heart beat, the room was well kept and clean.

Room Tip: The pool side rooms are gorgeous, I enjoyed being both close to the pool and not far from my car.

My family and I have been staying here over a month while waiting to close on a home. The staff is friendly, kind, helpful and efficient. Our family all enjoy the well balanced breakfast menu, my children go to school full and satisfied. Staff have all helped us find all we need in the area. It has been a nice start to our move to the Gainesville area.
