NOTE: ALL GAME WEEKENDS, GATOR NATIONALS AND GRADUATIONS ARE TWO NIGHT MINIMUM. The Days Inn Gainesville blends the stimulation of a university-burg with the small town flavor of Floridas heartland for a rare destination that drew some of Floridas earliest tourists. Along its back ways, roadside vendors sell boiled peanuts, country towns sell antiques, barbecue pork and pine forests scent the air, and crystal clear springs make the landscape sparkle. The University of Florida, the states largest and oldest, is home to the Gator, Gatorade sports drink-- invented here, an art museum and galleries, and the Florida Museum of Natural History, an ever-growing collection of fossils and habitat replicas, including a walk-through underwater scene. The Days Inn Gainesville features 101 beautifully appointed non-smoking rooms featuring two double beds or one king size bed. Each room features complimentary high speed internet access, iron and board, hairdryer, AM/FM alarm clock radio, individually controlled temperature and 25 inch remote control TVs with expanded cable including HBO. Enjoy our deluxe continental breakfast each morning from 6AM to 9AM. Pets allowed for 10USD fee.

Short stay - basic but comfortable.

This is a basic hotel. It was clean and comfortable for an overnight visit to Gainesville. Very close to the University, entertainment and shopping.

Below average

Conveniently located, but parking on only one side of the building. Room and bed were clean enough, but plumbing fixtures were old and kind of corroded, toilet handle need to be jiggled just right. Old tube tv with bad reception. Cheap ($59) though. With upgraded bathrooms and some TLC, would be ok.

Such a disappointment!

Although the price was low and you get what you pay for, I based my final decision on a review in September that said "recent renovations"! ROOMS ARE NOT RENOVATED effective 10-23-14! At least 2 of them anyway. We can handle rooms with "older" outdated furniture and poor design choices. That's not a big deal! BUT STAINS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE! The oilmen was very worn and that would have been no big deal had it not had stains. It looks like the maids do their best with what they have to work with. Mattresses are stained and so old that they hold no shape and one part of the mattress sunk so low when sat or lay on. We already moved from one "bad" room to another, so there was no better option according to guest services, who were by the way, very very friendly and tried to please. Their hands were tied. They don't have the quality tools to resolve the issues mentioned. The carpet was nasty as it was stained, worn to excess and sticky. If it had not been such a late arrival, and we had discovered how bad the room really was, we would have left and selected another option. $13 is too much for this room. Was very disappointed. Staff was the beat part of the experience. We accidentally left something in first room and the staff took it to lost an found which we were able to retrieve upon checkout. Advice: throw out old linen, remove and replace stained furniture and pull the carpet.

Works for what it is

Staff was great and helpful. It's a no frills spot in a good location with a large and very clean pool. For the money and for a cpl nights while in town for work it was fine.

Gator Gameday Value Option

Booked their only suite, which was very roomy and clean. Room was not ready at 5pm on check in day so had to leave and come back. Room supplies were not replenished after first night's service and had to go down to office to request. This is a no frills, cheap and clean option for Gator games if you are wiling to live with some invonveniences.

Needs a Renovation

This hotel was not what I expected of a Days Inn, but I guess it's been a long time since I stayed at one. The hotel was grungy and overall, in need of a significant renovation to make me go back. The sheets and towels were clean though, so if you have to stay here, you'll survive one night for the price.
