Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I'm usually a little leery of staying in the lower-priced hotels, especially when they're not part of a chain, but the Guest Lodge was a nice surprise! Have stayed three times now, and it's better each time thanks to the new management making renovations. I stayed there once when it was the GuestHouse and can say it's far better now....

Staying here at the guest lodge, the hotel is packed yet the staff is doing a wonderful job getting the job done. The rooms are spacious but they lack closet space, it would be a great addition to add closet space. WiFi is working ok considering so many people are at the hotel but it is on the slower side....

Very nice people running the property. The rooms are above average but the outside is very nicd making the stay extremely plesant with all the outdoor seating. The breakfast was befter than typical continental with hashbrowns, biscuits, sausage. I am going to be staying again in the summer on my next visit.

When I walked in the door, I thought I was in a bad movie. I wanted to ask if the room came with a broom. There was dirt on the counters, dirt on the floors, unidentifiable things on the counters… The list goes on. I think the pictures tell the story better than I can. Enlarge them if you can...

We are terribly sorry that we failed to provide a room to the standards we are committed to. Unfortunately we made a mistake in checking you into a room that was not ready and had not been checked by the housekeeping supervisor. The reason that happened is because we checked you in very early in the morning instead of our...

I live in GA but needed a place to stay on my way out of the state. I stopped in Gainesville and decided on the Guest Lodge given the reviews....the reviews were right! The staff was very friendly and helpful and got me to my room quickly. The room exceeded my expectations with the fact that it had been newly...

We got rooms with two queen beds and they were large and comfortable. Cannot beat the view for the rooms facing the courtyard, nice lighting, very nice staff and to top it off the rooms were very large with good bit of amenities. I would stay here again.

We're on the road 47 weekends a year. We don't like to spend a fortune on hotels and are always looking for a nice place at a reasonable price. Most reasonable priced stays scrimp on everything else. We also like to support "mom and pop" local places where we can, but quality in the "mom and pops" seems to be...

From the outside this looked like a great little motel to stay at, on the inside rooms needed a total remodel from Hotel Impossible.

Satellite Beach, Florida
Reviewed 3 January 2017

The outside is very nice and somewhat misleading. Pool area is very cute and well maintained, looks great to sit and relax after a day of travel. Rooms are dated. Furniture shows wear and age, beds and pillows need to be upgraded. Attention to the rooms will make this the best Kept secret of G-ville, GA.
