“Good stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 via mobile

Old Florida at its finest. We rented 3 rooms during a weekend of biking the nature coast bike trail. Only 2 easy miles to trailhead. Very old place but clean. The nicest couple own the place and very helpful for resturants and things to do in area. Great place for boating from as well. Good ramp and boat docks. We had a great time!

Stayed June 2013, travelled with friends

The location on the Suwannee river is beautiful. Riverside picnic shelter, barbecue grill, soccer-size field, and boat dock make the cabins an ideal location for a few days' family retreat. The motel rooms face U.S 19/98 and require full time AC noise to drown out highway sounds. No breakfast included.

Room Tip: Motel rooms are noisy, cabins are quieter.

My family and friends really enjoyed this wonderful "Old Florida" motel. This motel is just like the motels we stayed in as kids traveling in Florida with our parents. It brought back some great childhood memories. We docked our boat right behind the motel and were able to jump in the boat and take off down the Suwannee River. We cooked outside for two nights and ate our dinners while looking at the beautiful river. We had great service from the staff and will definitely be back next year!

Very old and run down. Tv just had three channels that worked. Bathroom was horrid. Shower curtain torn and covered in black mold. Toilet so close to the wall. Ac/heat unit was sooo loud! This was the only hotel around, therefore they can charge what they do. It could be very nice. Beds are so uncomfy.

Room Tip: Go and check the room out before you stay!

My name is Dawn Bell, from Marietta, GA. Pareesh and Vasanthi, the caretakers, were the epitome of grace and hospitality! The property there is absolutely breathtaking! My little dog and I spent the day lying on the raft right on the river water...I pretended like we were back in the day of Huck Finn...my little dog's name is Tucker, so we played Huck and Tuck Finn:)

If you are traveling through the area of Olde Towne Florida and do not take the time to visit the Suwanee Gables Motel and Marina...YOU HAVE TRULY MISSED OUT ON A RICH EXPERIENCE! and blessing in many ways:)

Room Tip: The RIVER:) so peaceful and serene
