Room was large with fridge and microwave it’s an older hotel but could be in better repair. The water in the tub wouldn’t drain and there was a suspicious stain on the bedspread. Cheap nights stay but not for those concerned about room being spotless. Good TV with lots of channels

Palm Garden Inn was Nice

Pros: The WiFi was great..never had a problem with it, and the place was booked solid. Even with all those people there, I had great signal
Cons: There is a slight, very slight, roach problem
Location: There was a very nice restaurant close by, as well as a Florida welcome center, and there were two fast food places close at hand. Wendys and Subway
The Motel is just that, a Motel. It offers free breakfast in the mornings, and the WIFI worked GREAT. The staff at the motel were very friendly and courteous. The bed was a bit hard, but sometimes that is appreciated, and My special requests for more pillows was listened to although there were plenty of pillows for me to stack so I could sleep with my spinal problems. They are kind of out of the way from Gainesville, or Lake City, but, in My case, being as we were evacuating from a Dangerous hurricane, The hotel worked out nicely, there were a couple of restaurants and Fast food places nearby, a wendys and a subway...So all in All, it was a decent stay.

We would recommend this motel to our friends. We stayed a week with our dogs over Christmas and were treated like family. They were very accommodating to our needs. Will stay again soon.

Nice Value Nice accommodations

Pros: Price,accommodations, cleanliness.
Cons: Could use a little more updating but I think that will come in time
Hotel is just yards off of exit 414 on Hwy 75 for easy access. This is an old motel that has recently been refurbished. They did a nice job. Room included a full dinette with ful size refrigerator, mcrowave and sink. Room was clean and staff was friendly. You can't beat the price. We stayed there the night before the game at Florida U in Gainesville. , . Rooms in Gainesville were going for triple this.
