While this hotel is considered "Old Florida", it needs some major updating. Looks like some renovating started years back but never finished. There is junk all over the back property. We chose this property because of the boat launch. The bed comforter's didn't appear to have been changed in years. Made us very uncomfortable. It's a shame, this is the...

The location of the motel is perfect but the motel is nasty! We arrived Friday evening to find the windows had been left open in our room & it was about 97 degrees outside. Needless to say there were insects inside our room. It took all night for the room to cool down. The room was disgusting, very old and...

Thank you for the critical review.The windows are kept open only during the morning when housekeeping is being conducted and the cross ventilation helps freshen up the room.The windows also have built in screens and they prevent any insects from coming in .We are remodeling all the rooms as you witnessed.

Clean room, nice swimming pool, bbq area out back and fishing off the dock.. Friendly staff, Nice and quiet only thing it was missing was breakfast. Nice little place instead of a big hotel with hundreds of people.

Beautiful setting on Suwannee River. Very nice marina. The room was very clean and comfortable. Also, very quiet. The owners are pleasant and eager to please. The grounds are impressive and the jasmine flowers smelled wonderful

Clean rooms, friendly staff, pretty location right on the Suwannee River. The place just needs a little TLC. The buildings and grounds could use a little sprucing up. It has character. I would stay again.

Great place on the Suwannee River with boat dock and ramp. Wanted to boat down the river from Barnford to Hotel on the first day and From Hotel to Manatee Springs the second day.. Innkeeper helped with the transportation logistics which made our boating trip a success. Motel is in a renovation mode and we had one of the lovely...

The location was convenient and the owners were very accommodating..... Unfortunately Not the cleanest of places... the shower didn't have any water pressure so it was like poring water over yourself. Not somewhere I would stay again.

Ver few motels in this area while visiting relatives, so we decided on the Suwanee Gables. While the owner was friendly, the rest of our experience went down after checking in! First room we were led to had a clogged and leaking sink. We had to move to another room, which was not welcoming at all. Bedspreads were worn and...
