Sufficient

It's in a good location. It's affordable. I wouldn't advise traveling alone after dark.

A place to stay

Sufficient room, comfortable bed and working AC which really make all the difference. No frills, other than the small kitchen with range and full size fridge as advertised. Not any cleaner or neater or better constructed than an average motel, but, that was not a problem.

Not comfortable

Booked a Non-Smoking room 3 weeks prior to my check in date. On my arrival I was placed in a smoking room. Staff not very helpful, would never stay at this location again. It was 2 nights of discomfort

My go-to in Gainesville

I have stayed at this Extended Stay several times. I am a graduate student at the University of Florida, and when I come up for class, nine times out of ten I stay here. It is usually one of the cheapest options; however, it is always very clean, very safe, and very comfortable. The staff is always welcoming and helpful as well. The location is great for quick access to the University of Florida as well as the interstate and EVERYTHING on Archer.

Good for no frills...just a stayover.

Nothing special, the room was clean, there was a kitchenette which would be great for those that need it. Where are the ice machines? Soda machines? It was great to just have a cheap place to stay over, no frills.

Extended Weekend

The size of the room was nice and the staff was friendly. The pictures shown for the Gainesville location aren't that of the actual hotel. The light by the entrance would not come on but once I told the front desk it was fixed immediately. Unfortunately we found a pair of underwear behind the dresser as we using the outlet. I'm not so sure I'd stay there again.

extendened stay

I think It would be more enjoyable if the rooms had newer carpets, these are rather worn out and dirty looking. as is the chair.... the bathrooms need better fixtures..... over all i think the hotel needs a good over haul and paint job.... ...the office staff are extremely helpful......
