This has to be the nicest, most quiet Best Western I have ever stayed at. My daughter and I were able to relax and rest between the visitation and funeral we were there to attend in a safe location. The staff was so hospitable and spoke to us everytime we entered and exited the hotel. Definitely will stay here again.

We loved the septet sitting area and large king room. Always nice to have a mini fridge and microwave in the room as well. The breakfast was ok, though they were low on things but they worked hard to restock what they could.

Now I have stayed at a few Best Westerns before. They are not normally my first choice. However, if every Best Western was like this one, it would definitely be my top pick.

We selected this hotel based on the location between Gainesville and on the way to Atlanta. It was conveniently located and a good affordable price. The staff was friendly; breakfast was decent. I would stay here again when back to the area.

Our volleyball team stayed here overnight during a recent tournament in Gainesville. The rooms were clean & comfortable, and staff was helpful. The included breakfast had a decent selection, perfect for a quick meal before heading out. If you need a place for a quick overnight, this is a great choice with several fast-food type choices near in close proximity.

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast area was well kept with hot, fresh food available in the morning. I would stay there again if my travels take me to that area.
