Great location. Room was OK, but dated. Quiet. Still can't believe these facilities can't figure out how to make coffee and something to eat available in the morning, amid the virus nonsense.

I liked that the rooms were clean. I didn’t like that there was no sort of breakfast and no real decaf coffee

Was surprised breakfast wasn’t included. That being said we will definitely stay there again the next time we’re in Gainesville.

The room was clean and looked to be recently updated. Having both soft and firm pillows on the bed made for a better night's sleep as we were able to choose what was most comfortable. The free morning coffee was pretty good. We appreciated the no-charge pet policy.

We liked the price, location and hardwood floors in the room. We would have liked a continental breakfast available in addition to coffee.
