Reviewed 1 week ago

I have stayed at Howard Johnson's on 13th Street for the past 10 years. The rooms I've stayed in have always been clean. There's a no frills breakfast available every morning. The Patel Family and staff are very friendly. "HoJo's" is conveniently located on 13th Street; close enough to UF, downtown Gainesville and a hop,skip, and a jump to I-75....

Only hotel I could get in Gainesville for graduation, as we booked late. Location was not as close as I would have liked, but that's my fault. Rooms were clean, but dated. Bed was comfortable. Check in took forever, as there was one clerk and everything was done manually. We did not eat breakfast there or use the pool. Parking...

Minor initial key issue, but fixed. Was clean enough. Chilly, but used the pool. It needs resurfacing, but was clean. You can tell the place has been around a while, but the owners have tried to update.

Venice, Florida

The hotel was perfect for what we wanted. Only issue was loud neighbors, but there was nothing the hotel could have done to prevent that other than move our rooms which they couldn't do due to all the rooms being booked.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are newly remodeled and finished our remodel late 2010. We now have new bed, new bedspreads, new carpets, new exterior, new interiors and offer a quaint breakfast selection. We still have our sparkling clean pool, and plenty of parking. We accommodate students, parents, truckers and travelers of all kinds, though, we are sorry we do not accept pets. We are conveniently located close to the Football stadium of the University of Florida, Shands Hospital, the VA Hospital, Gainesville Airport, and Gainesville Racetrack (home of GatorNational). ... more   less

“Rooms are better on the first floor, so you don't have to drag suitcases up two fights of stairs. You can also park right in front of your hotel room door and unload.”
