    Very good

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.
