Was looking to stay a couple nights in Gainesville while driving to Miami. Rooms were very nice for how inexpensive the room was. The location was perfect in the heart of the city and the rooms were very clean. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great deal.

Loved the friendly atmosphere. Very affordable and close to shopping and restaurants. Room was extremely clean and service was excellent. Comes with a microwave, fridge, and flat screen television, perfect for our one night stay. I would definitely come again!

Will not stay there again. Charged each $1.67 for "safe warranty" did not use the safe. Asked desk clerk.to remove the charge & she said I would have to take it up with the manager. The charge was not mentioned at booking. For the $1.67 they have lost a customer
