The staff was courteous and the rooms were newly renovated and decorated nicely. I will be sure to keep this one in mind for annual boating vacations. Its close to several nice large lakes and have... More

We went out of our planned route to stay here because of a coupon book special, but the rate was not honored. Would not have minded paying more if the room had deserved it, but it had a number of areas that needed addressing: 1) bathroom was shabby and bathtub grouting needed bleaching. 2) the lighting and number of outlets...

Imagine being locked inside of a refrigerator.... accidentally of course and as your stomping around in the dark you step on your grandmothers heavy perfume bottle and it breaks! Yep it was that bad!! This is one of those Halloween type places. It's wearing a deceiving mask. From the outside it looks great, like a country lodge that's a little... More

I was in town last weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. Another friend recommended the Guest Lodge and I'm so glad she did. Check-in was quick and easy, with friendly staff. The room far exceeded my expectations. It was spacious, very clean, had a microwave and refrigerator, as well as updated linens. The bed was very comfy so I had... More

I travel for business often and I usually stay at hotels with interior entrance. However this time I took a chance because this hotel was a lot less than the interior entrance hotels in Gainesville. I loved the fact that they are not a typical outdoor hotel, they have loads of useable nicely done space outside, rocking chairs at the... More

TampaTornado, Sorry that we did not meet your expectations. As evidenced by the painters tape, we just went through some extensive renovation and as with most contractors some things were missed. We are currently in the process of getting all the items fixed via a punch list process. We do apologize that we were not able to provide a perfect... More

We stopped here and stayed one night on our way to the northern Georgia mountains. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.
