“PLEASE do not stay here.”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

I don't think this place is fit for human shelter. Every hotel in Gainesville was either full or too expensive, so we wound up here. The lady at the desk seemed annoyed that I asked for two double beds. I assume at this type of hotel, only one bed is needed. We got in the room. It stunk like some kind of chemical. Everything was disgusting. The carpet was old. The TV had little or no reception. The shower head in the bathroom had mildew all over it. There was a shelf for the iron, and apparently people have been trying to steal the iron so it was chained to the shelf. Someone also tried to take the shelf, because it was halfway ripped off the wall. There was a full-length mirror that had at one point fallen off the wall, and nobody bothered to hang it back up.The decor can only be described as early-1980s beach house... except Gainesville is nowhere near a beach, and this isn't the early 1980s. There was a free breakfast, but after seeing the room, there was no way I would even LOOK at the food there. This place needs to be shut down, and the America's Best Value Inn company needs to re-evaluate who they let use their name. This place is shameful.

Room Tip: Rooms at another hotel are better than this. Rooms at the local jail are better than this.

This property is in need of some serious investment in order to bring it up to an acceptable level of service to the travelling public. The complimentary breakfast was average at best. The air conditioner worked. There were ants in the room and the infrastructure was marginally passable but it needs upgrade badly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the swimming pool or the reception desk in the back building. The lights fro...

had to find a hotel to stay at for long term as i travel and am working a job in gainsville for the next year. had to find something quick so i could start work the next day. this hotel is so disgusting. they charge me 1000 dollars a month and i cannot even sleep at night. the roach infestation is so bad that i actually started video taping them crawling on the walls and on my bed as i face timed with my family.the room is constantly dirty and they only clean every two days. i have become so depressed staying here that i am forced to move as i am only able to sleep one to two hours a night and have to get up at 5 a.m. for work. my bed is only a full size and i am 6 ft 4. do the math. my parents came and were so disgusted that they left after 20 minutes. i will be leaving and finding another hotel as my mother has totally flipped out and is coming to move me and all of my belongings while i am at work. don't ever stay here. this place should be burnt to the ground immediately.

Room Tip: don't even stop here.......run for your life
