Home Towne Studios - Gainesville
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in Gainesville
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Gainesville isn't a cheap place to stay. If you need a place to stay that is cheaper than most of Gainesville, then consider this place.

The pros: Wireless was faster than most places we stay and reliable. If you have to have TV, the channel selection was huge.

The minuses: We like extended stay places because they usually have larger rooms to accommodate the kitchen. Not this place. Small room. The place is clean but run down. Tears in the chairs, rust around the doors, heater had to work overtime to keep the place comfortable. The bed wasn't to uncomfortable, but with two in the bed, you ended up rolling into the huge sag in the middle of the bed. Good thing the wife and I love each other. The pillows were awful.

For Gainesville and the price, I'd consider it. But if I saved up a few bucks more before I go there, I would stay someplace else.

Room Tip: A different hotel.

Dear Doc S: Thank you for your candid review of the Suburban Extended Stay in Gainesville. As the new General Manager, you certainly give our team a better than average starting point as we are shooting for the number 1 spot in Gainesville, Georgia lodging. We greatly appreciate your good ratings of our service, value, price and location and do apologize you encountered some of the bumps in the “road” in our rooms, sleep quality and cleanliness. I would like to assure you and the traveling public our team has already taken and will continue to take serious action to improve what was lacking during your stay. When in Gainesville, Georgia, we do hope you will give us another opportunity to be of service and another review. Travel Safe! Most Cordially, Suzanne M, GM

I was in the area for a job interview. It went well. I stayed at this hotel because of the kitchens with the dishes and pots and pans. Also, it was a Choice Hotel so I felt comfortable.

I am back home now and expecting to hear about my job interview within the next few days. I will be positive and say that when I get this job offer, I will be staying at this hotel, when I come back to the area for work.

I had reservations for two nights but extended my stay for another night. I wanted to look around the town to learn the area that I would be living in.

The hotel was great! Older but very quiet. One hears such horror stories about extended stay hotels. Even though this hotel is under Choice Hotels, I worried a little bit.

I didn't need to. Like I said, the hotel was very quiet. The other guests that I saw were so very nice. The lobby staff were wonderful. All the staff were great. Tammy and Leiah were so nice and helpful in answering all of my questions about the area. They pointed out the benifits of staying at their hotel versis getting an apartment. I checked, they were right! I will save money by staying at their hotel. With the kitchen, it is perfect for me.

This hotel, from what I saw, was well run, clean, quiet and safe. I felt very comfortable. This was much more than what I had expected. I was well impressed.

Room Tip: Tammy mentioned that I would like a 3rd floor room, no one walking on top of me. They have an eleva...

I would normally never write one of these but I called and spoke with the front desk and the manager today regarding a future stay. While I have not stayed here, I most definitely would- based on at least 2 of the staff.

I didn't think that I would actually get someone on the phone but when I did and they treated me respectfully and answered all of my questions, I felt that this was worth bragging on. Most of all I was not treated as though I was wasting their time. I look forward to going up there later this year.

This hotel was a welcome change after an unpleasant night at a nearby hotel in Gainesville. Leigh, the front desk manager, was especially helpful and could not have been nicer to deal with. The room and public areas were clean and welcoming. I am a single woman traveling alone and felt safe and protected while at Suburban. The room's carpet was clean and fresh-smelling, and the bed and bath linens were good. Tub/shower, sinks, dishes, cookware and appliances were sparkling. Several restaurants and fast-food chains are nearby, as is a supermarket across the street. I come to Gainesville once a year for a sports tournament and plan to stay here every time.

Saying thank you seems hardly enough for the extremely nice comments you left regarding your stay with us while you were in Gainesville for the recent Lacrosse tournament. Leigha did mention, to me, that you had wonderful things to stay about our hotel and that she asked you if you would be able to relate those same comments here at TripAdvisor. Imagine my surprise when I checked TripAdvisor and I read your critique of our hotel and staff. Our new Housekeeping Supervisor is thrilled that you mentioned the cleanliness of the room. She is pleased that her efforts with her staff have not gone unnoticed. We look forward to your next visit and hope that you will have the opportunity to come back to Gainesville before next years Lacrosse tournament. Lovely pleasant people such as yourselves are always welcome at our Suburban Extended Stay.
