Had to move.

Posted Mar 11, 2015
The room smell so heavily of smoke until the bed smell of smoke. If it had not been so late when I got there I would have not stayed. I book two days. I got up early the next day check out and move to another hotel.

Cheep, but you get what you pay for.

Posted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: Price, location
Cons: Towels, provided amenities (shampoo, soap, etc)
Location: Next to highway, walking distance to target, stake and shake, mcdonald's, shopping center
Stayed here because it was cheep. Room is good size. Staff are friendly, but they wouldn't bring us fresh towels, we had to go to office to pick them up. They did bring some shampoo once though. The towels look like hand-me-downs from the prison. Breakfast consists of packets of instant oatmeal, muffin, or orange, and coffee. Saw a large bug heading for the hills as soon as we opened the door. Close to shopping and the highway.

Schlafraum mit Arbeitsplatz zu fairem Preis

Posted Mar 4, 2015
Pros: Hotelzimmer mit Blick zum hauseigenen Parkplatz sind hinreichend ruhig. Das Haus selbst ist aber typisch amerikanisch hellhörig. Nachbarräume sind hör
Location: Direkt an einer Einkaufsmeile, Interstate und und und...
Besuch an der UF. Der Campus ist fußläufig erreichbar. Für Autofahrer sind aber auch genügend Stellplätze vorhanden. Gainesville? Keine Ahnung - in der Umgebung des Hotels sind hauptsächlich Geschäfte und Straßen.

The room was clean. The hotel was a little old, but the rooms were nice.

This is my choice of hotel to stay when I am in the area. They still have smoking rooms which are hard to find now of days and are pet friendly.
