Highly advise not going here, overrated in the advertisement, beware this is not what it seems. No marina, no kitchen as seen in the picture, poor quality room; Internet for my iPad not available, lap top internet reception extremely poor. Hair in bathroom, toilet and sink unclean, dead cockroach in bathtub, surprise visit from palmetto bug after my shower.

Made reservations a month in advance. Stopped in and loved the location. This motel is right on the Suwanee River so you can see boats going up and down. Rustic cabins nearest the river need more cleaning and a little TLC. Ended up not staying here but going down the road. Couldn't get onto the internet here. They have a...

It wasn't the best of places, it wasn't the worst of places. Been in cleaner places, been in dirtier. Been in Hampton Inns with more road noise. Wifi was weak and slow. Didn't get reception two rooms down from office. Everything in room was worn but pretty much clean.

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend at this little place. Depending on your standards, you will either enjoy or you won't. If you are expecting a Hampton Inn or a Hilton, then you are out of luck. This is a beautiful property overlooking the Suwanee River, the hotel is older, and has not been renovated in some time, and...

Gorgeous property in the Suwanee River. Our room was newly renovated and beautiful. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Great location - close to good restaurants, the Dixie Music Center, and many outdoor activities.

I had to go to the school board building in Dixie County and arrived there in the evening. I passed a Quality Inn, because I thought it was too far from my destination. After passing a couple old style roadside motels, when I saw the Suwanee Gables Motel, I figured I had better stop for the night. It too was...

I love this place!!! Visited here 33 years ago, and I loved it then. Very homely. Love the river access. Local restaurants are excellent. Looking forward to visiting Suwannee Gables Motel again. The management personnel is friendly. They are currently renovating their rooms with French doors and decks for each room.

Okay, so I really hate reading negative reviews because I know I some people are just hard to please. I am not. I saw this was an old hotel so I expected it to be dated and, it was. I also spoke with the owner before I booked to ask him a few questions. I saw he had a boat...

Good morning and thanks for giving me the opportunity to set things straight. If you look at your receipt,the room rate was 79.99 and not $87.00 for a party of two, for additional person there is a fee of $12.00 . For the boat ramp use there is a $15.00 fee which was confirmed at the time of check in...
