I always read reviews and unfortunatley chose to ignore the negative reviews about the Suwannee Gables. I chose this motel because of its vacinity to the river, the docking area and the boat ramp. The rooms are basically what I expected. Old and musky with uncomfortable beds. The 80.00 per night rate is ridiculous for this type of motel. I was willing to pay the rate for he convenience of the river, boat ramp and docks. At check-in there was a 13.00 fee to use the boat ramp. Fine. We go down to the river to walk the dock and check out the river and the dock is unwalkable. It is missing sections and is dilapitated. We launched the waverunners Saturday morning and I tied one to the cleat of the piece of the dock remaining and the entire 2x6 came off! So lesson learned, we will not book this location again but still had a great day on the river. Upon check out there were two fees charged for the use of the ramp which we used one time. It was explained to me that the two charges were becasue I have 2 wave runners. No further comment on this. Bottom line, cheap motel with expensive rates. Dirty, musky uncomfortable....and the pictures on the website are misleading to say the least. Save your money, book another local motel with better rates and use the public (free) boat ramp at the bridge (1 mile from the motel). My lesson learned? Trust the reviews!
