“Great Stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We stayed 2 nights here and was totally pleased with the hotel and quest services. The rooms are nice and very comfortable. It is located right off the interestate and was conveniently located. Room was very clean and quiet. BW is always a hotel of our choice!

The BW Gateway Grand just hosted our wedding reception and our out of town guests. It was by far the most wonderful service we and any of our guests have ever received. Our reception was in their ballroom and the food was outstanding. Jorge Negron, director of catering, took care of us and our guests and made us all feel special. The entire banquet, front desk, kitchen, housekeeping staff were superb! I would recommend this hotel and their staff to anyone who needs hotel rooms in Gainesville. Also, best banquet food ever! Cudos to the entire staff

This place gets the job done. I had business in Newberry so this is the closest full service hotel. The rooms are big and the property is spacious. The hotel is a little tired, however they keep up with the maintenance. I ate dinner in the sports bar which was lively on Friday night before the Gator home football game. Speaking of that, the team spend the night here before home games. So there is a wake up ritual to be aware of, just know,it's not a fire alarm. I would stay here again, good internet, service and quiet.

We hope your stay wasn’t too noisy with the football team wake up on Saturday morning. The celebration did continue with the fans after the Gators win in Gators Den Sports Grill. The Gators will be joining us for all their home games and we’re confident they will all be “wins” at the swamp. Hope to see you during the next football game. Thanks for the great comments. Ron

This BW is a great place to stay! Convenient location, friendly staff and great restaurant on premises. Room is always clean and very quiet to ensure a good nights rest before traveling onward. Plenty of things to do locally if you have time to spare. We always make this BW a "destination" in our travels and use it as a halfway point when meeting friends from north Florida.

Hotel needs small gift shop & daily newspapers for sale; restaurant breakfast needs meat other than pork; you must close bathroom stall door to access toilet paper. Hotel should inform guests at check-in if room does not have tub (and shower only).

Thank you for your comments. Our king accessible rooms are the only rooms that have showers and do not have bath tubs in order to help with wheel chair accessibility for a disabled person. These rooms are at the same price as our standard double room. We will review your comments in our staff meeting to see if we can add some of the requested items to make a guests stay more enjoyable. Thank you. Ron

Visited my son in college. Hotel has great service and very reasonable rates. It is very clean and the free breakfast is great because it includes both hot and cold meals. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your great comments. Remember during your next visit to Gainesville that the Best Western Plus Gateway Grand has parents rates for parents visiting their kids at the University of Florida or Santa Fe College. These rates are available all year long except for special event weekends. Have a nice day. Ron

unhappy with stay, had to pay for our kids, which the one reason we chose BW we Kids stay free...but after the hectic check in we come to find out its based on each hotel..so double check next time you choose to stay at a BW. I know I do now. cuz Im not going to fall prey too that. I think its bad business to charge for kids under 17. we could have lied about not even having any children wtih us. so just beware next time.

I am wondering if you stayed at the Best Western Plus Gateway Grand? We definitely don't charge for kids. As a matter of fact, our hotel has flat rates so we charge the same rate for 1 to 5 people in a room unless they rent an extra cot or crib from us. Please call me "Ron" or Vince our front office manager so we can straighten out this problem. Thanks Ron
