Reviewed June 21, 2014

Our family of four plus one of our granddaughters, a mother cat with 6 kittens and one of our small dogs had adjoining rooms which perfectly suited our needs. Everything was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool a couple of times which the kids loved and had it all to ourselves. The staff was friendly and helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again....in fact, we would prefer to stay here over other Gainesville area hotels! We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially those who like to take their pets with them!

Was extremely satisfied with the staff, rooms and appearance. Breakfast was good and everything went well. Would definitely stay there again. Three other family members stayed at the same time and all had good experiences.

This Best Western was a nice surprise. Very upscale. New, High end. Breakfast was nice, good selection. Rooms are large and some are suites. Great for families and pet friendly. Location is just off interstate with lots of fast food close by. If your staying a few days the mall of Ga. is very close by and it is huge.

This is a fairly new hotel. We had a room with separate seating area with a door enclosing the bedroom. It felt like a small apartment. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel is exceptionally clean and breakfast was very good. The girl who served breakfast was always smiling and always warned everyone when she was about to close. My only comment would be that closing breakfast at 9am is a bit early for those on vacation. All day coffee is great! The hotel is in a great location, just off I985 but we were totally unaware of being close to the highway, no road noise at all. The hotel is set up on a small hill and although close to all sorts of restaurants and other amenities it felt like we were in the country. Definitely to be recommended.

Room Tip: King suites are excellent.

John Walker runs a great hotel. Not only is the hotel in a great location it has a beautiful layout from top to bottom. when you arrive the first thing you notice is how comfortable and inviting the lobby is. The staff goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is the best while making it look easy. I've stayed at this location several times and wouldnt think about choosing another hotel.

Older property with a great location off I95. We found the property to be well maintained for its age and would stay there again mainly because it is pet friendly. Breakfast variety is not that great.
