Football Weekend

4 stars for the price. Located on 13th St near the intersection of SW 16th Ave. next door to the historic Bambi motel. 5-10 minutes by car from campus and downtown. Not walking distance but for the price an excellent choice. Furnishings dated but well--maintained and very clean.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you like barbecue of all types - 4 Rivers Smokehouse http://4rsmokehouse.com/locations/gainesville/ There is always a line on games days. Great place to pick up tailgate if you don'r cook your own

Was what was needed!

Room was ok, only needed a place to sleep. Could have refrained from the baby powder smell in the room being so strong.
