My experuence was literally in and out of our room. Waiting on our refund for the full amount. Ended up going to Renaissance by Marriott which was excellent!

Pretty basic hotel with very friendly staff. Located easily off I 75, there are also a few restaurants in area. Good for traveling.

Hotel stay

Posted Apr 11, 2017
The room was comfortable and quiet. Needs work in the breakfast area. Served the same thing, no variety of food for days I stayed there. The elevator is small and old. Challenge to take numerous stairs.

Love staying

Posted Apr 5, 2017
Pros: quiet and comfy
Cons: Have a longer Timeframe for the Continental Breakfast 6-9 is just not enough time, maybe 6-10 would be better and stocked up.
Location: It's Gainesville, FL there are a lot of things to do here, just Google it.
The room was clean and immaculate and didn't smell musty, musky or smoky which was a nice change when staying in an older hotel. Bathroom was clean but you could tell it was an older hotel by the cracked caulking and water stained faucets, etc. Slept really well and the hotel is reasonably quiet considering its near 75. The only noise to contend with were the other guests walking down the hallway talking loudly and bumping their suitcases up against the door. Did not partake of the Continental breakfast as it was picked over by the time we got downstairs, but it did smell good. Only complaint I have is the $75 deposit for damages during check-in, when I paid ahead of time for the room through Expedia. On checking out, I questioned the desk clerk about this policy and was told that it had been in affect for approximately a year. I let her know that I had stayed in other LaQuinta's previously and did not have this additional charge. She didn't know what to say.

When I checked in. The guy was very busy. He got to us as quick as possible. He even up graded us for the extra time which was not long at all. Very clean and modern hotel.
