Over all the staff was accommodating. For the price I would stay again if I needed to.
The bathrooms could be updated and the small refrigerator had alot of scuffs on front door of the refrigerator. Some of blankets had cigarette holes in them and I was in a non smoking room.
The bed was hard the pellows were flat
Bigger batthrooms an new beds
Bed extra nice, clean, pretty on the outside and inside, nice tv. Clean bathroom
Staff was grumpy
convenient to the University of Florida campus
price gouging for the graduation weekend
Everyday, I had to check whether there were towels enough that were left by the cleaning staff. Most days there were not enough and I had to get some from the front desk.
Clean, comfortable room at a good price.
We liked the manager and his family that ran the hotel. They were very attentive.
Good value, worth the drive from I75.
Construction outside in the daytime made it hard to sleep in the daytime.
parking lot was freshly paved.need to change picture on web.the little playground was a plus for people with children.
continental breakfast,got there about 9.am and there was nothing.
As an experienced hotelier what I look for is quality of management. This property is being looked after by a wonderful couple. I unexpectedly needed to stay in Gainesville longer than originally planned (personal reasons) I was accommodated and offered the opportunity to keep the room into Saturday if I needed it. This is Gainesville on a weekend, need I say more?
What I would change about the room; walls are painted a shade of green reminiscent of an institutional facility, drapes did not close all the way, television's sound was hard to understand (even with the volume up).
Disability access room, King bed, in room refrigerator freezer, clean, no bugs, nice atmosphere, convenient location
Need thicker comforter, could use better pillows, Bath needs update
Very nice and clean place. Staff was very friendly!
Location is great. Close to the University campus, downtown, I-75, shopping, restaurants, etc.
Expensive! I guess prices go up for special events like football games or other. The rooms are really small and bathrooms are tiny. Don't pay more than 75 bucks per night here.
I will never stay here again and I am going to let others know not to stay.
The entire staff was rude and disrespectful especially management.
