Stayed for one night on our way home. The king room was clean, spacious,and nicely decorated, with a desk and sofa. The bed was very comfortable. Popcorn was a pleasant snack at night. Located close to I-75, easy off and easy on.

This Econo Lodge is in a perfect spot on the beach. All rooms are oceanfront and comes with a great price. It is an older hotel and could stand a few updates, however it is clean and we continue to stay here. Compared to the other places I have stayed on VA Beach, there's no comparison.

We had a wonderful stay here at Sleep Inn & Suites in Gainesville. The rooms were clean. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. There was a good hot breakfast also. I will definitely stay here again. Easy access off of I-75. All of this plus a reasonable rate!!

Great Location. Easy off and on to I-75. Friendly staff. Clean and quiet rooms with a good bed, what else can you ask for! Easy walking distance to several restaurants. I will definitely stay here again on my future visits to the area.

I believe we received a very reasonable rate due to the new motel under construction right next door. Fortunately the workers called it a day by dinner but were up early at 0700 the next morning. Our room was OK for the one night but the a/c does blow on the bed and the wall thermostat was not working. Mongrel...

Staff was exceptional (especially Ms. Sunday)! Rooms were clean and tidy. My only complaint was the mattress. We stayed in room 120 and the king mattress is akin to concrete. I sleep on a firm at home but this was just too hard! Just needs a new mattress and i would gladly stay here every time I visit Florida!
