I'd give it 3.5 if I could.It wasn't to difficult to find for me since in lived in the area for almost 2 yr's. Room 315: Comfortable bed,Clean bathroom,Hot water, Nice T.V, fridge,good AC & Heat and Microwave.The sort of insignificant negatives where: Front panel if A was a Lil loose.Kinda big gap in door jamb at the lock.Some exterior in perfections that there obviously addressing.Breakfast consisted of lil frost honeybuns and lil muffins and one other such thing.Strong coffee that was fresh but both juices where out.Talkbto the front people and they said the truck didn't show up.I'd love and update on that on 3/14/2014 if possible.Carpet had seam showing near bathroom.New paint applied both in #315 and the exterior.Nice looking pool.

There was something going on in Gainesville and because we travel with our little scottie we are limited to which hotels will accept us. We were very tired so were relieved when we called and this hotel had a room. We opened the door to the room and right away smelled an unpleasant odor. The room was old and seriously in need of an update. The bathroom had no toilet tissue and was dirty. The floor had not been cleaned. We looked for a phone to call the desk and there was no phone. My husband said there was no way we were staying there and he went to the office and asked for a refund. The girl said no but after my husband made it clear he was not leaving without one she refunded our credit card. It was a disgusting experience.

Room Tip: Go someone else!!

Our room was clean, no bugs, no bad smells, the Wifi worked great, the staff were wonderful.

I wish the room had a coffee maker but, when we travel we keep one in our trunk for the Hotels that don't provide one so it's really no big deal.

Firm pillows and a good bed made for a decent nights sleep which we really really needed.

We didn't have a reservation, we had good experiences at Motel 6 in other areas so we trusted Motel 6 and the price is always inexpensive as well, so we took a chance and we are glad we did.

Room Tip: You don't have to worry about bugs, bad smells or dirty rooms here.

We have been happy with Best Value Inns in other cities and were glad to find a good one in Gainesville. We stayed there going down to S Florida and again on the way back north. The rooms are comfortable and we appreciated the cleanliness and relative quiet, as well as the friendly staff.

Though it's right next to I-75 (easy on, easy off), the entrance is tricky to find. When exiting the interstate at Newberry Rd. from either direction, turn west and look immediately for two gas stations next to each other (Exxon and BP, as of winter 2014). The Best Value Inn entrance is an almost invisible driveway to the right of the BP station, where you may notice a plastic banner on the fence; drive around back to find the large motel/hotel.

It took many trys to find the place,GPS said just make a U-turn, the trafffic light said No U-Turn.
After driving by a sign facing the wrong way a couple of times, we found a drive-way that looked like construction area. Housekeeping very poor, rug was dirty.

The rooms were old and run down-no coffee pot in room-the breakfast was poor to say the least-
the girls at the front desk sure tried to make up for the rest-friendly and very nice-I looked like they just purchase this hotel from someone else-the parking lot was dark
