This hotel was nothing spectacular, but not the worst either. It is old, and in need of a facelift, but was clean and comfortable enough for the one night. It is in a convenient location as far as proximity to many things, but a little difficult to get into at the particular intersection. I wouldn’t be opposed to staying here again at the low price.

Stayed here from 10/09/- 10-12-2018. Fled Hurricane Michael. Comfortable beds and pillows. Pros, microwave and mini fridge. Cons- bathrooms need updating badly. A lot of drunks staying here. We were in Rooms 106 & 108. Staff wouldn’t do anything about them. But no pet fees !!! Would stay here again . Pictures are of the hinges on the inside of bathroom door in Room 108.

Nice place. Great value for the really over priced Gainesville area. The property is at a bad intersection to I 75. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The rooms are clean with nice beds. Parking was good. Very close to the mall and not far from campus.

I’m writing this as I lay in the bed. I’ve just found a huge cockroach. Bathrooms are disgusting and unkempt. Tiles crumbling, floors unclean. Found a dead spider in the toilet. Walking into my room the first day, I was SCARED to enter the bed! This is disgraceful, Motel 6! It is absolutely unacceptable to have bugs in a room. I can’t wait to see the sheets under a black light - I’m that suspicious of your honesty. I heard cleaning staff arguing about a dirty towel that was folded up and attempted to be put back in a guest’s room. Ventilation needs cleaned badly. I will NEVER stay here again!

The rooms were dank and poorly upkept. The employees were not helpful and completely disrespectful. One worker yelled and kicked us off the property for trespassing because 2 people came to visit us at the pool deck. Before they even stepped foot on the deck she called the property sherif. She said she didn’t care if we were guest or not we were liabilities. She said we can get our money back, which we didn’t, because she wanted us all off the property immediately. I was so embarrassed I just packed my stuff.

You stayed at a "potel", where filth, thievery, and lying is their way of life. Google it.
