We stopped at Best Western without any plans. The hotel was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The staff when we checked in late at night was...

Hotel was very modern and clean. Was upgraded to a suite at check in for no reason, which was very nice. Room was very clean and comfortable. I will only stay at this hotel when I return to Gainesville.

This was a great hotel to stop & get a very good night's sleep. Right off I75, pet friendly although I didn't have a pet with me. Even though it was pet friendly, it was very clean and you couldn't smell any pets! Very NICE hotel!:)
