Stayed here and it was absolutely nasty. The carpet made your feet black. Stay away from here unless you like filth! Tried to talk to the front desk staff about the nastiness and it didnt do any good, they seemed to be proud of it! Nasty Nasty Nasty!!

If you are restricted by time, funds, or availability, then you could do wor see e than this one. If you have no constraints, you could most definitely do better! Rooms ok size but tatty. Sheets clean but cheap. Skimpy on towels. Staff is friendly and helpful but bumblling and clueless.

I checked in on 11-29-2016 and i was there for 45 minutes and checked out. In that time 3 cockroaches showed themselves while i was eating my supper. Needless to say i threw my dinner away. On top of that the floor was dirty and there was hair all over the bathroom. The lady working gave me a refund and...

I stayed at Econo Lodge while working near Alachua the other day. The person who checked us in was friendly and accommodating. My room was a little worn but clean and quiet. I stayed on the backside of the hotel away from 441. The AC worked well and I had a good nights rest.

I read the review, but thought if just run down, no problem. We were tired and just needed a bed. Unfortunately it was during a festival and took the only bed we could find. It appeared to be clean, so changed and fell into bed. The next morning we got up early turned on the lights to find visitors crawling...

It is a no frills place. It was clean, quiet, and good for a night. Beds were comfortable and plenty of pillows. Sure beats the price of a place in Gainesville, but still not too far away. Not a lot of things nearby, but there is a grocery store, gas, and some fast food nearby. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We travel a lot for work and pleasure and this is our first stay in a Choice Hotel, Econolodge. I must start by saying that the young man at the counter was helpful and courteous. Our room stunk like smoke, mold and body odor and had obviously not been cleaned for the filth on the floors, windows, bedding, bathroom and...

After traveling 11 hours needed a place to sleep. We have a small dog so we checked into a pet friendly room. After about an hour we found small ROACHES in the room. We killed them and went to sleep however the next morning I opened my iPad and there were several more inside the cover. We arrived home and...

I booked this hotel for work because best price for the weekend for a home game in Gainesville. I found the staff delightful especially Jayne and Hilda. They were always pleasant and went above board to help customers. The room was very large with a large bathroom. The mattress was wonderful with ex-large pillows. The room and property where very...
