This was a nice on the road traveling stop over for the night motel. It was conveniently located and not too far to the Oaks Mall for those who like to shop. The personnel at the motel were all friendly and personable. Room was clean and a decent size.

Bathroom unaccaptable, pool disgusting and only short of some condoms floating in it, „breakfast“ looked like they put it out weeks ago. All lines and bedspreads had stains and holes. Over night, the fridge stopped working. It was like a Mr. Bean movie from hell. :( Run, I say, run fast!

Because of events in Gainesville, especially Gator Nationals drag race, everything in Gainesville was either booked of very expensive. This hotel was the only thing in my price range. This hotel needs to be updated. Old carpet, bathrooms still have antiquated plumbing. You could hear tv next door and everybody in the parking lot. Free continental breakfast was offered, but...

My wife and I stopped in on a busy Saturday night. While waiting in line at the check-in wife heard 3 complaints including a plugged toilet for the second day. She almost walked out but it was late so she checked in. Our double room was fine considering the price with coupon but it did have a few obvious glitches... More

My fiancé and I stayed here because we were literally stranded in Gainesville due to car trouble. The staff was very friendly and the continental breakfast was nice so that was a pro of the hotel.

this hotel was terrible, dark...bathtub had rust stains and dark spots on the wall. coffee pot was corroded and no coffee there to fix anyway. the beds were clean, but mattresses old. We probably should have left, but rainy and dark and not many rooms available on a Friday night. Because of this I will never stay in Econo Lodge... More

The rooms are okay. They are not fancy. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. The room needed a good cleaning. The bathtub didn't drain, the towel rack was falling off the wall. We did notify the management. Breakfast was generic and there wasn't a lot of room to move or eat in.
