Because there were no rooms available in Gainsville, we kept going and stopped at the Quality Inn in Alachua. We needed a pet friendly room and they were no where near full so no problem, until we got to price. Because Gainsville was having a basketball tournament, Alachua decided to "cash in". No discounts of any kind would be applied, even though we are AARP and Choice Privileges members and each pet was an extra $25 (kids and drunks make bigger messes then pets do normally in my opinion so it is a scam to charge extra for small pets, although I'm willing to pay a reasonable rate for them, but $50 for two small pets?) . So total bill for one night was over $190 for a budget hotel in the middle of Florida. We were so tired we took it thinking maybe it would fill up later, but when we arose at 3:00 a.m. to leave, the lot was still half empty. I'm guessing later they probably applied discounts again.
