We enjoy LaQuinta with its usual amenities. Dog grass easily accessible. Easy on and off from I 75, places to eat nearby. Door to room very heavy, so they slammed when people came and went. ADA room was very spacious.

We had a reservation for a game day weekend, just one night. When we arrived we were told the only rooms with king sized beds were on the first floor. Then we were given a key to a room where someone was SLEEPING. Very scary because if they would give a key to us to an occupied room, what is... More

We chose this hotel because we needed a place close to Micanopy, an old Florida town with lots of character and antiques. We also have stayed in LQ elsewhere, and knew pretty much what to expect. Since Gainesville is a college town, there are plenty of hotels, and we didn't want to spend that much for just 1 night. We... More

But the exterior badly needs refurbishing. The beds are great and the rooms are newly decorated and carpeted. The bathroom needs an upgrade as our tub was so worn out, all of the finish on the tub was scraped off.

We had previously loved this place. This time around, we were disappointed. In Gainesville for a momentous family birthday, we booked asking for a suite. The suite at this hotel is just a larger regular room. No sink at the kitchen service area, just a fridge with the freezer compartment totally iced over, and the microwave with the smell of... More

We needed a dog friendly hotel. This was a very accommodating Hotel and the best of the pet friendly hotels we encountered on out way to New Hampshire. Much cleaner than the other dog friendly hotels we started with during our week trip up north.

Although this hotel is in need of exterior renovation, I was pleasantly surprised by the refurbished lobby and guest rooms. Almost everything in the room was new and tastefully decorated. The beds were super comfortable. And our dog got to stay for free, we loved that! Breakfast was included but was lacking in the protein department. Overall, this hotel was... More
