Had a very good stay at Super 8 in Gainesville Fl. first weekend in April. Nice clean room(101), rather quiet and peaceful compared to room 201 that we stayed in last time. Room is right next to pool, which was not a problem for us, but could possibly be later on during summer with kids making a lot of noise.

The room had a smell to it, the floor in the bathroom was coming up . The plugs were worn out ,when you plug things in they would just fall out devices could not charge. The plug under the center stand was coming out of the wall.

Unfortunately, we arrived at 9:30 PM and they gave our room away even when we provided our printed out confirmation statement. The worse part is the front desk folks were rude and really didn't care. I wouldn't stay at this Super-8 in the future even if it were free. I fully understand overbooking happens (very infrequently) but there's no need...

No refrigerator :-( - Asked for a first floor room at time of reservation, got second floor with NO elevator. Front door must be used after 10 p.m., inconvenient as we do smoke but not in our room. A nice quiet hotel, near the interstate and close to where we were meeting up with friends. SAFE WARRANTY with tax fee...
