Under renovations and improving

The hotel is slightly out of date but is undergoing renovations and improving. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about local places to eat and drink. Great location to get on and off 75 and walking distance to gas stations and places to eat. For the price you really can't go wrong. It was quiet and safe during my stay. TV is a little small but that's not a big deal if your just there to sleep. They do sell snacks and drinks at the front counter and ice and laundry machines are available.

Nice, quiet, clean.

Owners are trying to remodel this hotel and it shows. The new rooms are spacious, clean, have new bedspreads, new curtains, new paint. $100 for a room seems steep but it was okay.

Better than you would think.

I got a room here because of the location, low price, and nothing was available in Gainesville. Even though it is close to the highway and looks cheesy with its bright exterior, the rooms are nice inside. The rooms seem to have been upgraded recently and the widows are heavy enough to block out noise. I would stay there again.

Disgusting, Never Again, Dive hotel

When the first thing you do is check for bed bugs and roaches, it's pretty much all down hill from there, right? Check in: Front desk did not have reservation and asked for my receipt to just hold on to and gave me a key (!?!?). There was a man outside trying to sell me DVDs. The toilet overflowed upon the first use, leaving us with no towels. The front door lock appeared to be some steel SWAT team enforcement for the area we were in of town. There was a TUBE tv in the room.

Not very nice

This hotel looked like a cheap motel. I didn't like the staff and rooms were not very clean.

Worst hotel ever!!!

This hotel is horrible. The first room they put us in was a storage room. Then second and third rooms they had us in were covered in mold. Finally the 4th room was do able. My boyfriend and I have just been thru a house fire and lost everything we had. They were over priced also on the internet it said the let fee was $15 when we checked in the lady charged us $25 a day for the pet. They locked us out of our room for over 3 hours mean while our dog was locked in the Room. EVERY UNACCEPTABLE BUSINESS ETHICS!!!!

"was been hotel"

Pros: easy to get to from main road. Delightful new gal at front desk who needs to find another place to work. and that was all.
Cons: not telling a person it cost 10.00 more to be on the first floor, the attitude of the mgr, coffee pot that doesn't take 10 minutes to heat water.
Location: centrally located
Easy to get to but sure needs work on parking lot and in general. Looks nice at night, but not in the day. I asked for a first floor and was told it would be $10.00 more a night. didn't take it. the next day mgr called and told me they were taking the frig out of my room because I wasn't paying for it. Didn't know you had to. Micro also. Asked her if bed was next and she told me not to get snippy. Louzy pillows and I had to have them replaced. Fair bed. No instructions on how to call front desk so had to walk down there. Room number scratched on the door? really? Room not tended to one day. Hit motel 6 instead for a consistant nice room. Nice gal behind the desk ....was new and suggested she look for another place to work as this place was below par.If I could have had a refund, I certainly would have moved.

Looks good from the street but not the cleanest room .

Rooms not dirty but gave the impression on unclean. Redecorating some rooms, old furniture stacked on walk in front of rooms. Grounds in need of lots on care. Internet so slow it was unusable.
