This was my second time staying here at The Guest Lodge and it was just as great as my first visit! Super friendly staff, Marisol and Calissa got me all settled into my room...I got king poolside this time and it was lovely (last time I got a newly renovated room with hardwoods). This room didn't have hardwood but I...

The Guest Lodge is definitely the best hotel in Gainesville! The staff is friendly and professional, and they keep the property and rooms very clean. Breakfast was great, the pool is lovely, and the rooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds. The hotel is pet friendly, and I will absolutely stay here again! I have already recommended The Guest Lodge...

This would not be my hotel of choice but it was a good option traveling with our dog.It was inexpensive and relatively clean hotel. The pet friendly rooms had "wood" floors which could have been cleaner but everything else was very clean. Breakfast was included in the room rate but was disappointed that there was not a black tea option...

I can sum this hotel up in three words: Gross, gross, gross!! The lobby is decorated in early 90's Brothel Chic. That should've been the first clue. The guest room looked like the set of CSI. After finding large chunks at dirt (possibly gravel? Kitty litter? ) and short, curly hair within the sheets we requested another room. We checked...

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. It is disgusting, the sheets on both of the double beds were dirty, we were giving another room and had the same problem! The receptionist had to come and change the sheets, housekeeping is obviously not doing their job. The laminate wood floors were also sticky and dirty. Not worth over $100...

This motel is perfectly located right near the main thoroughfare in Gainesville! The cute downtown square is just a 15 minute walk, many fast food restaurants within walking distance including Dunkin' Donuts right next door, with other great restaurants and shopping a 5-10 minute drive. The hospital and medical clinics were 1-1/2 miles away which was perfect for my recovery...

I selected this hotel solely on the Tripadvisor recommendation. The hotel is clearly an older hotel undergoing some renovations. The outside looks very nice with a court yard and pool, and the lobby has been redone. My mom and I were put in a first room that was really just kind of "gross." It had a tile floor, no coverlets...

We were at this facility for 3 days and the staff was the plus for it. We ate breakfast once but the presentation was lacking in variety and presentation was not the neatest. The breakfast area is in the lobby with cashier; not conducive to morning breakfast. The room, though, easy to access had a few issues; bulbs missing; water...

The hotel is convenient to downtown Gainesville. There are lots of fast food restaurants within a half mile but I only saw a real restaurant. The reception team at the hotel was outstanding and friendly. She was helpful finding me a place to eat at 9pm after driving up from ATL. The beds were a little soft for my taste....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our place. When it comes to mattresses, it is nearly impossible to be everything to everybody. You felt that our mattress was soft and you will see other reviews which state that the mattresses were too firm. We are glad that you found our staff to be helpful. The...

We stayed on Easter weekend. The staff was so friendly and helpful from the time we booked thru checkout. This is a beautiful hotel. We had a newly renovated room with hardwood floors and beautiful dressers. The pool area was lovely with lights and patio. Breakfast was way beyond the usual cold cereal and milk that many places have. It...
