“Great place to spend a night or two”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Stayed here for preview and for move-in for my daughter's start at UF. Close to campus, quiet area, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast is the usual for a Quality Inn. Staff is very nice. It isn't a four star hotel, but the price isn't either. I'm sure I will stay here again and again over the next few years.

We spent one night at the Quality Inn University. It is OLD and in need of refurbishing. It was clean in the room and the bed was comfortable. It is only a few blocks from the University of FL Campus. The parking lot had numerous cigarete butts in it. Obvious that it had not been cleaned in some time. Outside entrance to the room. No elevator. Break was average. OK for a one night stay.

Room Tip: Non Smoking rooms are evedintly not pet friendly.

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.
