“Hotel of choice for our business guests”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

For the past 4 years we have used this hotel to accommodate our out of town guests when they visit our business. It is convenient, clean, well appointed and favorably priced. Whenever people ask me where to stay in Gainesville, this is the first place I recommend. Of the dozens of guests we have put here, everyone of them has had good comments. The most recent one was no exception.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus in Gainesville Florida. The room was very comfortable and the pool was fantastic. We really enjoyed the outdoor pool and hot tub. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your recent stay. All winter long we look forward to summer, when guests get to enjoy all the hard work our landscaping team does on the pool deck! Whether you're enjoying the sun in one of our chaise lounges or relaxing in the shade of our three gazebos, the BEST WESTERN Gateway Grand is the place to be for those hot summer days!

The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean overall. The hotel is conveniently located off the interstate and is close to restaurants and grocery stores. I plan to stay at this hotel again when I return to Gainesville.

I felt safe at this hotel. Was traveling alone to meet family. Everything was nice and it was an enjoyable stay. This Best Western was nicer than many I have stayed at while traveling. When I stepped out of my room, I could see the front desk and the dining area. Typical breakfast items were served. It was easy to get on and off the interstate from this location. Didn't hear any noises that prevented a good night's rest. There's a restaurant on site but I didn't visit it. Outside pool area was pretty.

Thank you so much for letting us know about your recent stay! The safety of our guests is our primary concern and it is rewarding to know that you felt safe during your stay. We're fortunate to be located directly off of I-75, while being situated in such a way that we never have to worry about noise from the interstate. We hope you have a chance to visit our Gators Den Sports Grill during your next visit!

This hotel was perfectly fine. Falls squarely within expectations for a Best Western Plus -- clean rooms and pleasant staff. I was a little annoyed that you had to walk outside to access the hotel bar/restaurant because mosquitos love Florida (and me) in the evenings.
Breakfast in the morning made the trip -- they served a cinnamon bun that was worth writing home about, or at least writing on Trip Advisor about. Yummy!

Thank you for sharing your experience regarding your recent stay! We're always looking to ensure that we've got a wide selection to choose from in our free deluxe continental breakfast and I'm glad the cinnamon buns were a hit!

While our Gators Den Sports Grill is just a short walk from the lobby, I understand that sometimes you just want to stay indoors and beat the heat. To make things easier for our guests, we offer our full menu through room service! Feel free to relax in your room and have a delicious meal brought to you the next time you're here!

Had our Grandson's wedding reception here and it was great for us and that they allow a pet since we had no place to leave him with all of the family at the wedding. The food that was offered at the reception was excellent and the staff was very helpful at the reception and the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel on April 13 2014, coming from Atlanta Georgia. The room we stayed in was very clean and we were impressed by the hotel having a full bar of soap to bathe with never seen in any other hotels. We are so use to bringing our own bar from home. The hotel staff was very helpful. We will choose this hotel if ever in the area again. Their breakfast was great you had to pay $3.00 for the omlette but it was worthwhile, because it was loaded with whatever you wanted. They even had it where you could get a massage on property will have to try that the next time.

Thank you for your feedback! It was great hearing that you enjoyed your bath amenities during your staff. We want all of our guests to feel pampered, so we do our best to provide soaps, shampoos, and lotions that will leave you feeling refreshed! We even use Bath & Body Works' "Rain Kissed" line in our King Premier rooms.

I was glad to hear that you were able to take advantage of the omelet station. Nothing starts the day better than a fully loaded breakfast omelet! We'll look forward to your next stay!
