It's been good and great prices on the room..It's really a great hotel and cheap prices I've completely enjoyed my time here . And I do believe that when I travel here to Gainesville this will be the only hotel I will check into..!! I hope everyone enjoys their stay as I did.

It was actually nicer than I expected. Miss Patel and her son were very nice & accommodating. I'll probably stay again. Made our Valentine's great! They even have a pool, microwave and fridge in room as well.

Strong stale smoke odor despite being labled a nonsmoking room(110) I triple sprayed all fabric with fabreeze and lit a candle to make it barely tolerable. Internet unavailable despite their initial insistence that my computer was in error. They were unable to restore it even by the following day when I checked out. No bugs thou. Bed was okay and...

I stayed at the Gainesville Lodge for 3 nights. My check in was easy & the desk clerk was friendly. My room was very clean, it came with a fridge & microwave. The bathroom was a little on the small side (no bathtub) but it was clean also. The only negative that I have is the walls are very thin....

This is a very nice hotel for the price. We walked into a very clean room with a nice fresh smell. I especially love the non carpeted floors and updated furniture. The staff is extremely nice and the location is perfect for Gainesville nightlife.

I was extremely impressed with Gainesville Lodge. For the location and the price, it is a steal. Clean, quiet, decent amount of space. My only complaint would be that the mattress wasn't the best. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Needed to stay in the city for 2 nights and just needed a safe, clean, comfortable and quiet place to stay. This place fit the profile perfectly and the price was just right. I recommend it for a quick trip. Not for a long stay.

Stayed here one night to go to son's UF orientation. It is no frills but very close to campus, shops and restaurants. It is inexpensive and clean, the staff was helpful and friendly. Served it's purpose but I wouldn't stay here for an actual vacation. Good for just a night or two. I will probably stay here when I drive...

We were so pleasantly surprised!! We really didn't expect from such a great value, however, not only is the staff exceptional but the room is very nice and very clean. We will definitely stay here again!!
