just ok

Posted Oct 14, 2017
Pros: convenient location
Cons: cleanliness
it was just a place to sleep. nothing more. a lot of construction workers starting vehicles very early. free breakfast was nothing to speak of. for the price, sleep while you can.

Very old and dirty hotel.

Posted Oct 13, 2017
Probably the worst hotel I have stayed in Gainesville area. Room smelled of mold, there was blood on the wall in the bathroom that the housekeeping staff did not clean up even though it was there when we arrived and we stayed three nights. Some of the towels were either dirty or permanently stained. The staff was very nice but they are up against the fact that the place needs to be demolished as it’s beyond a remodel in my opinion.

Nice hotel, would stay again

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Looks like they are trying to make upgrades. Room clean, tub stopper was broken and sitting on the edge of the tub. The A/C was very loud and even when we set it to 68 it was warm during the night. These would not stop me from staying again as they are fixable, staff were friendly and breakfast was free.

Stayed here for a Gator game..

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Pros: The staff was pleasant and the room was clean.
Cons: Breakfast. Please see statement above.
The room looked remodeled. However, we were on the first floor and the walkway had mold all the way down the sidewalk overhang and was dripping with water from the floor above.. When we went to our car the moldy water was dripping and got on our clothes. Please power wash the mold. The breakfast is no longer in competition with the other hotels. No one really likes boiled eggs for breakfast and the only hot dish was the waffles, which hardly no one was eating. Please update to bacon, sausage, omelets, or scrambled eggs with grits, not instant. This would be a huge improvement to be in competition with other hotels in Gainesville. You could offer these selections only on the weekend and during ballgames when the price of staying here is increased substantially. Thanks!

Nice Basic Lodging

Posted Oct 3, 2017
Pros: They do take pets (dogs) and there is a reasonable amount of grass for walking.
Location: Lots of eateries nearby. A mall across the street. Super close to I-75 but you could not hear the freeway in the room.
I only stayed one night but I would stay again. Room was good sized, clean and the bed was comfortable. It wasn't fancy but I wasn't expecting fancy for the price.

Okay stay in G'ville

Posted Sep 14, 2017
I don't want to come down hard on La Quinta in G'ville, just being candid. It is an older facility and, while everything worked and the staff was quiet and efficient...it's a place you stay when you want to get off of I-75 or you are coming to G'ville to see a Gator home game and then leave. I must give them credit for handling the Irma evacuation crowd. I stayed there (on business) the week leading up to Irma's arrival; the place was pretty much booked solid; and I still got the service I paid for.
