I have stayed here many times for business and except for a couple very minor things this is a great hotel. I usually don't stay at motels...where the doors open to the outside, this hotel is an exception because I feel safe here. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and the location is great!

The staff was wonderful, the room seemed clean. By disappointment was in the fact that the room was damp. When I checked out the towels, they were paper thin and very scratchy, and they felt damp. I thought that was because laundry didn't completely dry them. Then I went to plug in my computer...there are NO convenient outlets for phones, pads, or computers...so as I was crawling under the desk to plug in my computer, my knees were wet (big spots on my jeans). To make uncomfortable to worse, the bed and pillows were damp. I reported it to staff, nobody was surprised. So this is an issue that is not getting fixed. NO BUGS, NO BAD SMELLS, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. The staff is not at fault for what the owners do not want to fix. We traveled with our dog and bird, staff went out of their way to make our stay a welcome stay. They made us feel like the favorite relatives. Thank you staff! I hope the hotel dries out before the mildew sets in.

Upon arriving at the hotel we weren't even sure they were open for business as there was only a few cars there. They were painting. All the doors had wet paint signs. Upon entering our room, we had a very strong mildew odor. There appeared to have been a water leak in the bathroom area at some point. The room was dated except for the flat screen TV. There was no mini refrigerator and when we asked about one they said it was an aditional charge.

We stay at La Quintas because they are pet friendly - big plus! The location here was very easy off the interstate and close to UF campus. People here friendly, and can't beat the price! But...

Our first roomed smelled horrible! Like mildew. But they were quick to change us, but the next smelled like mildew plus bleach. A weird smell also came from the shower drain. I got over it, but I feel it worth mentioning.

La Quinta Inn Gainesville is 2 blocks from North Florida Regional Medical Center, where my mother was in the ICU and then in hospice care. The proximity to the hospital and the good value at this inn, where I've stayed on other visits to see family, were the reasons for selecting it. The staff were very helpful in accommodating our needs, including extending the stay from 2 nights to 5. If you have someone in the Med Center you are visiting, ask about the special hospital rate.
