My wife and I have only stayed at one other La Quinta Inn; the one in Bonita Springs, FL. So on a trip back down to Bonita Springs, we thought we'd stay in another one overnight in Gainesville. What a huge difference! This place is old, rundown, next to a few closed down businesses, and right across the street from...

This is not one of the better LaQuinta locations. We have stayed at many of them, as we travel with pets. It is amazing the difference from one to the next. Some have been very nice and clean, others dirty, loud, and in poor repair. This would describe the Gainesville location. Our room reeked and the bathroom was dirty, the...

The property is right off the interstate, so, easy off and back on the interstate. There is a Dunkin' Donuts very nearby for a latte, several decent restaurants nearby. The property is a good value, however, it does need a little refurbishing.

This is a well located motel with lots of restaurants and fast food in the area. It is clean, quiet and reasonably priced. I've stay there several times and highly recommend that you stop there anytime you're in the area looking for a nice place to stay..

Nice accommodations, very friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast and good coffee. Well, this stupid survey requires more characters, not realizing the advantages of succinctness. Stupid. STupid. Finally enough stupid extra meaningless characters

This hotel is fat from new but is really well kept, clean, quiet although a stones throw from I-75, and located close to what a traveler wants. Access is a bit confusing. Although it is 0.4 mi from the interstate exit, be WARNED, the turn off Newberry comes very quickly after you pass under the interstate. You go North a...

We always stay at LaQuinta.....beds are so comfy and usually very clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. We stay at all the LaQuinta going down the !75 hwy. Always a smile and it is so nice to wake up to a great breakfast in the morning. We think the rooms are decorated nicely.

Worst hotel experience. I would spend the extra $10-30 per night and stay at another facility. The renovations do not include the hotel rooms but maybe just the lobby. If you want housekeeping, you may or may not get it. They may make the beds, but won't strip the bed sheets daily. They will only take trash out that is...

This is an older building, but the rooms are all updated from top to bottom except for the tub. This was our first stay at a La Quinta , but definitely not our last. Our pet stayed for FREE. Which is a Great Plus !!
