You should have no probelm with this very inexpensive accomodation in Gainesville. While the area is not the best, the rooms are clean and have been renovated. But there are only very few non smoking rooms, so the possibilty of getting stuck with a smoking room is very high. I cannot reccomend this one because of that.

We got this at an employee discount rate- otherwise I woud probably give it 2 stars. The pool was eh, the rooms were eh- nothing special. It was close to the Gainesville airport, which was convenient for us since we were in town for a weekend wedding. We didn't spend much time in the room, actually...just to sleep. We never made breakfast so I cannot comment on that.

The folks than run this place are nicer than most, and more personable. It was refreshing to be sincerely greeted and attended to. Their hotel is pretty average, though. It's decent and pretty clean, but a little of a step down from what I have seen in other Quality Inn's elsewhere. The hall smelled like smoke, and the room key required a bit of a "technique" to use. The breakfast was ok, but who's expecting gourmet for this rate? The room appeared clean, and the stay was quiet so I slept well, but for some reason there was water standing in the tub when I checked in. Not cool but I took it as a sign they actually washed the thing down and the drain stuck. Overall it's an average value and better than most in the price range (bargain); but I've come to expect a little more bang for my buck with the Choice Hotel family of chains. You may consider stepping up to Comfort Inn in this part of FL if you are a Choice customer.

Ok place to stay, clean rooms, nice pool, ok breakfast w/very small area to eat. Small room for a stay longer than overnight. Advantage close to the university, disadvantage close to the university. For our purposes it was a good location but a pain to navigate to upon arriving. If you aren't going to a function at the university then there are better choices, as we found out, closer to the interstate.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a kitchenette the are all on the second floor. Not a bad place but smoke fro...

FACILITY was very clean, it does need some refurbishing in some places. Rate was reasonable, staff was very helpful. Breakfast was the standard fare for a Quality inn. DIid not use the pool but there were quite afew that were. Rooms were large with refrig and microwave and flat screen tv. Would use this motel again.

We stayed here for one night while visiting the University of Florida. The room was clean but needed updating. The hair dryer was melted but fortunately we brought our own. The staff was very attentive, however, and brought us extra towels within minutes of our request, and they had no problem with us staying until 6pm at a half-day rate so that we could use the pool and shower in our room prior to checking out. The pool itself was well maintained, but the hot tub was under repair. The complimentary breakfast was great.

Room Tip: If you prefer a room off street level, be prepared to carry your luggage up the steps because there...
