        kind people and quiet air.

        dead cockroaches everywhere... biggest one was as big as my thumb. never vacuumed over a week. And embarrasing breakfest..

        This motel was quite comfortable, and cleanliness was A+. (I checked thoroughly!) The owner/manager was friendly and honestly concerned about making sure our accomondations were perfect. Even though this is an older property, the beds were great and the room & bathroom were nice and clean.

        Everything was fine.

        the only reason i stayed was becuase it was pet friendly..budget hotel looks like it hasnt been renovated since the eighties..very old outdated not very clean..rooms have small window feels like jail cell

        Outdated cold dark rooms.not comfortable at all depressing small windows

        close to campus

        I supposedly booked non smoking room but the manager said all they had was smoking rooms even though the hotel did not look like it was sold out. it really bothered my allergies and i had a terrible night sleep

        Great location!!! Older motel but very clean and quiet. Very nice pool!! If your visiting the campus it's walking distance.

        No blow dryer or iron in the room, though available from the front desk.

        The staff was very very kind! The rooms were nice and clean, albeit a bit older, but come on you have to appreciate an older establishment like this. I would highly recommend it!

        Hotel staff did help us very well.

        Old building need face lift bad and need more electrical outlet in room. Also when you working in lobby, some kind of smell is very strong.

        Helpful staff, Large room, they had a pool, It was close to the University of Florida

        I foudn a small dead roach round the side of some furnicture

        Cockroachs in room, towels were spotted with what appeared to be blood and smelled. Various shady looking characters roaming streets around unsecured hotel grounds, including some women of possible ill-repute. Took extended time to check in. I plan to contact local code officials regarding room conditions.

      • Group of friends

        proximity to the downtown Gainesville area

        Room was in poor shape. Stains on wall and sheets, hairs on towels, poorly repaired plumbing and ventilation, cockroaches on floor.

        Had a strong smell upon entering.

      • Older travelers

        that we could park our car in front of the room

        towels were tiny and really scratchy. Toilets really loud flush...you could hear the ones in the other room.Rooms could be cleaner..I found a tissue in my covers...yuck! good thing I brough lysol.

        Location is close to UF veterinary hospital where I was visiting. A reasonable selection of restaurants nearby. As a solo woman travelling I felt safe in the area.

        The place is a bit old and could do with a paint job but for the price the bed was comfortable and everything was clean.
