Baymont Inn & Suites Gainesville
Ranked #24 of 47 Hotels in Gainesville
Reviewed 24 July 2014

This hotel is near my annual family reunion. My experience last year was not good, but I figured it was just a bad day. Surely things would be better a year later. I tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. Besides, I wanted to stay near my family for extra visiting time. Never again. I've never said that about a hotel--and now I've said it twice about this one. This time, a staff member entered our room unannounced. No knocking. No nothing. Now that was a surprise! Now imagine no towels in my parents' room. Housekeeping took the dirty towels and left them not one. Now imagine being told by the front desk staff that we'd have to wait until the next morning. Really? No concern. No offer to figure something out. Amazing. And from the manager, excuses about his staff--and only an offer to return the extra money we paid to the hotel because Hotels.com booked the wrong room type. Really? Really. Never again.

The room I was given was, at first glance, just fine. It was small but clean. Quickly after walking in, though, I noticed the dehumidifier. I'd never seen a dehumidifier in a hotel room before! It showed that the humidity in the room was at 80+%, which seemed really high. I have problems breathing well in really humid air, so I ran the dehumidifier until the humidity went down enough. While the machine was on, it was too loud for me to watch (and hear) the TV. As soon as I turned the machine off (and emptied out a ton of water!), the humidity started climbing again.

Sleep was nearly impossible. Either I couldn't breathe well (but didn't have both the A/C and dehumidifier making loud noises) or I could breathe but the noise from the dehumidifier was deafening and sleep-inhibiting. I ended up getting out of bed 2 hours earlier than planned, because I wasn't sleeping.

I will not be returning to this hotel.
