I requested a ground floor room and was accommodated. Comfy bed and clean room. No fridge, but there was a coffeemaker. Price was fair for a city...

I stay here frequently because they are pet friendly and because the location is very good - near the highway but quiet. The staff always try to help me get the room I want. There are lots of dog walking spots and even one with bags to clean up their deposits. The major draw back for me is that the...

Immediately noted the sink wouldn't drain and there was a slight odor. Noted in shower it looked like paint had partially covered up possible mold.

We stay at la Quintas quite often when we travel and are seldom disappointed in our stay. This one in Gainesville is somewhat lacking in amenities-no fridge or microwave and the furniture could use an update.We were charged for 2 rooms instead of 1 and the person I spoke to promised a refund and an email receipt . We did...

I wrote a review two days ago, supposedly on TripAdvisor. It never showed up. I used the link I found on the LQ day-after thank you email. It never posted to TripAdvisor. Hmmm. I am trying this attempt directly off the TripAdvisor website. The motel was packed, it was a Thursday night. They don't suffer from a lack of travelers....

I was in Gainesville for a funeral and selected this hotel based on location. The rooms and lobby are recently refurbished and are very nice. All of the staff were very professional and friendly. While the exterior of the building appears more like a motel and is getting a bit old, the rooms were a pleasant surprise - very comfortable...
