Best Western Gateway Grand

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The only restaurant on site is an incredibly loud sports bar -- anyone over the age of 30 who can still hear should avoid it. There is a restaurant across the street that the hotel does NOT tell you about. It, too, is a sports bar, but not as loud.

Nice rooms! Food from the grill was awesome! I highly recommend this hotel!!

This hotel is a beautiful facility with a great price!!

Great experience. They forgot to clean my room but they discounted my bill and ran me clean towels. Staff was very nice and apologetic. Greeted with a guest bag. Just really good stay

I booked a king room but they only had a double available. There were long black hairs on the floor, bathroom, and bathtub. One bed clearly had not been made correctly as the middle blanket was bunched up at the foot of the bed. There were black hairs in this bed also. It was disgusting.

just a quick overnight stay. Clean and comfortable.

Good overnight stay. Would stay again and recommend to others.

This hotel was fabulous! The perfect location for visiting my family down the road at Meadow Brook Community. Super clean and luxurious rooms at a very reasonable price. This hotel is also right off of I-75...location, location, location!

Staff was great, rooms clean and location was convenient

We had a great stay at the Best Western. Central locaton, clean and very friendly.

Comfortable atmosphere and pool was great. Love having the restaurant next door.

Nice hotel, good breakfast! Would recommend this hotel to friends.

The hotel itself is nice but the rooms are not even on par with a dorm room. This is a place you book if there is no other place available during a football game but not if you have other choices available.

Hotel Breakfast great. Pool and exercise room great. Room maintenance needed

The trip was for training and certification as a scent detection canine handler in High Springs, Florida. [...] The rates were the best for my needs and the hotel I stay at while in Gainesville is incredible with service canines. The hotel experience was great, the staff was friendly and helpful and the room was always clean. Always a great experience at that hotel [...]

Great hotel for the money. Staff was very friendly.

Rooms somewhat small but clean..Excellent location...very quiet and secluded...Pool area is FABULOUS...Breakfast was good but they did charge for eggs...Would definately stay here again..

This hotel is convenient to plenty of food, gas, and I-75. The outside an lobby give the impression that everything will be as nice, especially for the price (I paid $91/nt) but the rooms leave a little to be desired. While everything was clean, the furniture, fixtures, and carpet need to be updated. The bed was quite comfy though. I would recommend readily if the price were more in line with what you actually get.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a business trip and brought my husband and 4 year old along. We enjoyed the hotel very much. It was a nicely decorated and well maintained. The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was great. The hotel was kid-friendly. The staff were very helpful and nice. Customer service was excellent. Great value for the price. The only negatives were that free internet service was slow at times and it would be nice if the fitness room had more equipment, free weights, etc.
