While they have changed the name, it appears to be pretty much the same hotel. It’s a two star hotel with drive up to your door parking. When I stayed there it was clean and quiet. Close to restaurants hiking and good for the price

This is a nice little mom and pop motel close to downtown and the university. The property was well lit and clean with sufficient parking. The room was reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly and accommodating.

Description
We are newly remodeled and finished our remodel late 2016. We now have new bed, new bedspreads, new carpets, new exterior, new interiors and offer a quaint breakfast selection. We still have our ...More sparkling clean pool, and plenty of parking. We accommodate students, parents, truckers and travelers of all kinds, though, we are sorry we do not accept pets. We are conveniently located close to the Football stadium of the University of Florida, Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, Gainesville Airport, and Gainesville Racetrack (home of GatorNational). Less
