Better than most at this price

very nice hot breakfast, very helpful staff; however, the room was extremely damp, as most of them are that have that kind of cooling system and the rug was smelly, but most hotel rooms have smelly rugs because guests always walk around in stinky bare feet. Strangely, I had a very poor cell ph one signal at this location.

Good all around value

Hotel was very clean and accommodating. Was a little disapointed that I could not check in early even as a priority club member, but that was due to some extended stays the night before by other guests. Very close and convenient to downtown Gainesville and Interstate 75. Friendly accommodating staff. Very comfortable rooms!

Very helpful staff with directions to good food. The location is very close to many good chain restaurants, and easy to find other attractions from.

Great hotel!

My room was spacious with a microwave and small refrigerator, desk, ceiling fan, both firm and soft pillows on the bed and lots of them, bed was a dream of softness yet firm, excellent breakfast offerings including breakfast meat, eggs, biscuits (!), cinnamon rolls, french toast, regular toast and bagels, several different fruit juices, cereal, yogurt - extra fine. The hotel was tastefully furnished, staff friendly and helpful, beautiful well maintained grounds, plenty of parking. I stayed there 2 nights while a friend recuperated from surgery at the hospital. The hotel was at the next exit, about 5 minutes away. I didn't eat at any nearby restaurants or do any shopping so I can't give helpful information about that except to say that I saw plenty of restaurants and a shopping center nearby. Checkout time was noon which I really appreciated..
