This hotel made traveling with our large pet very easy. The location was right off of 75 and easy to get to. Plenty of restaurants close by. The rooms are solid and quiet and you don’t hear much if any noise from halls or other rooms. Nice stay.

My wife and I stayed at this La Quinta for 6 nights Christmas eve through Jan 1. The hotel is relatively new (a few months open, so I was told). Accordingly, the rooms and facilities overall were in great shape.

Complimentary breakfast was okay, with (surprise, surprise!) at least eggs and sausages/bacon for those avoiding carbs as opposed to the usual carb fest typically offered. I wish they offered more in the way of protein but at least there was something.

Also deserving praise is this La Quinta's offering dedicated charging stations and parking spots for Tesla vehicles and other EVs. Well done, La Quinta! Tesla drivers, take note of this option. (As a matter of fact, I convinced my brother to switch hotels as he drives a Tesla.)

The front desk staff and breakfast area staff deserve praise, as well, for being above and beyond professional and courteous, something you don't see too often with hotels in this price range. Thank you, Edmond, for saving us on Christmas Day, when the breakfast area was suddenly swarmed near closing. Thank you, Vanessa, for your lively banter and great humor each day. I can't recall the name of the young woman at the front desk who helped us with the Tesla charging (a recent relocation from the midwest, if I recall correctly) but the hotel should definitely keep her on the team.

If you have business or personal travel in Gainesville and need a place to stay that's near the freeway and fairly central, this La Quinta is a solid choice.

Since Wyndham took over, pets that used to be free are now $20. We have been an exclusive La Quinta customer for several years because we travel frequently with our little dog. No more. While the accommodations are fine, La Quinta no longer has a competitive advantage over other chains. We will therefore seek accommodations elsewhere.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our one night stay here. The room was very clean and quiet. Hotel staff were all very friendly. I was impressed by the breakfast offered, as it was not just full of carb options. There was a decent selection to choose from. Also a plus was the 24 laundry service on the second floor (not sure if every floor has one) however we didn’t need to use it. Overall I was extremely pleased with our stay especially at such a great price.

It was a wonderful experience. The hotel was very clean, the room was perfect. Great breakfast included. We arrived at 9:00 pm on a Wednesday without a reservation and got the room we wanted at a great price. Would definitely stay there again.

Don't stay at this nice looking chain hotel if you want a good night sleep; it just looks sleek on the outside but it is not designed for good sleep. I contacted the manager Sheila Bailey regarding our issues and didn't get a response.
The window of our room had a very bright light outside right above the window and the curtains were too short and too narrow by several inches!! Because of this, the bright light from outside shone into the room from under the curtain as well as left & right. We tried everything we could including putting pillows all around & tucking the curtain into the window frame but it didn't help because the fabric is so thick and stiff and sticks away from the wall creating gaps between the wall & curtain.
In addition, traffic from the highway nearby was very loud throughout the night despite the fact that the hotel is offset from the road (and that's one of the reasons we chose it as we wanted a quiet night sleep); and got much worse around 5am in the morning when traffic intensified with loud honking every few minutes. When I tried to turn the fan on to drown out the traffic noise, the fan would not turn on even when set on High. I checked the windows because I could not believe how loud it was given the distance to the highway; it appeared that the window had cracks around the frame which allows the noise from the outside to come into the room. The windows are a single plexiglass panel. There is also no significant sound barrier between the road and the hotel in the form of vegetation or buildings.
I don't think I slept more than a few minutes the entire night and the other person woke up repeatedly and had very poor sleep. I have stayed at many chain hotels & this was one of the worst in terms of the light & noise situation. Even worse, we spent more than $200 for a sleepless night; there were several other less expensive hotels we could have gone to but chose you because we thought LaQuinta Hotels provide a quality (or at least decent) experience.

I am so sorry about the experience that you had here with us. I did have someone go check out the room so that this doesn't happen to anyone else. Again I am so sorry about your stay here with us. I do apologize that we didn't get back to you sooner, that does fall back on us. Our apologies again, I hope you have a great day.

Hotel is close to I-75 freeway. Appears to be a fairly newer hotel. Modern decor. We were in a deluxe king. Very roomy, comfortable, and clean. I prefer a firmer bed, which this was not, but it was tolerable. Pillows too soft. Offered grab and go breakfast (packaged items). However breakfast room attendant offered to give us a hot breakfast from “the back room”....scrambled eggs, sausage, fried potato...heated and shrink wrapped to go. She gave me a tray to carry it back to our room. So sweet of her.

We are pretty new as we are just over 2 years old now! I am so happy to hear that your room was comfortable and clean. We are thankful that you still enjoyed breakfast as we were still in unsure times due to Covid-19 but we still wanted our guests to have a great experience with us. I hope you have a great day!

Last minute trip to visit family. It was a home game football weekend @ UF, so many of the hotels were at capacity when we booked. We like LaQuinta because we travel with pets. This particular hotel charges extra for pets, which we were surprised to learn at checkin. Not a huge increase, but unexpected none the less, and on top of increased rate for football weekend, it was what we considered expensive for a LaQuinta. Overall, the room was clean and comfortable. Due to Covid, we did not partake in the breakfast, as many folks were circulating without masks.

As others have said, the rooms are very clean. The location has nearby a mall and several reasonable eating places like Red Lobster, Applebee’s and Perkins. The hotel breakfast is very basic but hearty. The only, fresh fruit was green apples, and it would be so nice to have more than that. Coffee good and hot. The use of plastic wrapping on every single item at breakfast is kind of shocking. Every plastic utensil is individually wrapped, as is every plastic cup and coffee cup, and every slice of bread. Just to get these things unwrapped to use is a bit time consuming. I know Gainesville is an environmentally aware city, so this is particularly surprising.
