I was visiting a family member at Shands hospital. I was unexpectedly asked by my sister to stay overnight. I looked up the hotel and immediately was given a reservation for that night. Upon arrival the clerk was courteous, the room was super clean, and the fridge was cold. I ended up extending for another night. When I came back...

The room was well appointed. The amenities were good except for spotty internet. The beds were comfy. The staff was pleasant. But once I saw the bug on the blanket, I found it very difficult to fall asleep. Might want to call the exterminator!

I loved this place. Our room was clean,comfortable and quiet. The value was outstanding and the bed was heavenly. I couldn't get over the price. They presented us with a 'how to' instruction guide for acsessing the internet which was helpful and appreciated. Close to many good restaurants as well. It was the last room we rented on a long...

I greatly appreciated the room cleaners who kept enough attention to detail to find my missing earring!! There were enough outlets for our needs, the refrigerator was clean (and cold) and the modernized shower was a pleasant surprise. The whole building only has two floors, so you won't have to worry about too many stairs. Its location is right next...

Very clean rooms. The walls were freshly painted and very quiet. The beds are very comfortable. The entertainment center with large flat screen, microwave, and fridge are new. This place is great for short stays. I do a lot of traveling on I-75.

I booked this place as I was in town for the Pearson Vue Testing Center just 4 miles North. I did a lot of research on places in this price range and NONE of them included free wifi, coffee pot, microwave and fridge in the room and continental breakfast. My King room on the 2nd floor was very clean and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are newly remodeled and finished our remodel late 2010. We now have new bed, new bedspreads, new carpets, new exterior, new interiors and offer a quaint breakfast selection. We still have our 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). ... more   less

“Rooms are better on the first floor, so you don't have to drag suitcases up two fights of stairs. You can also park right in front of your hotel room door and unload.”
