The location is great. Front desk and staff were quite friendly.

* Bathrooms were very small. * AC unit was not of sufficient power to cool entire room. Room was much hotter by the door than by AC unit. *Continental Breakfast was very low end. *Fitness Center - Very small and uninviting.

The BEST thing about this hotel was the nice guy that checked me in! And I also like the location.

The room had a dank, ick, damp, old smell. Everything about it felt dated and used. I disliked the feel of the place.

My Uncle was in the hospital at Shands. The distance and time was great.

I was not satisfied with the price of the room for---. The fixtures, bedding, and other essentials in the room were not worth the price. Although we had a spacious hotel room for a disabled person, we were in the back of the hotel kind of scary.

We don't know because we didn't stay

We couldn't get past the entrance/lobby. When we drove up, you could see the curtains were all falling from the windows. The linings were very stained and the outside of the building was not well maintained.

This is the first and only hotel I felt very uncomfortable in because of the appearance. The pictures posted of the pool area are such that. This area looks very nice. We couldn't stay because it appeared that nothing had been upgraded since maybe 1970; and it was not an outward clean appearance. The impact was that we just left and decided to 'eat' our money we were charged.

Check-in person was helpful, cheerful, and knowledgeable. Price and access to U of F campus was also a plus.

I had one pillow that was as hard as wood. All the others in the room were usable, but one was terrible.

The pool was great and a pleasant surprise. Late check-in was allowed up until 1pm which was helpful.

Location was exactly where we needed to be.

A bit run down. Clean enough but it was dingy and drab.

The hotel met our needs for a place to sleep and was close to our destination. Nothing major wrong, but nothing impressed me either. Room was very dated and had a bit of a musty smell.

SCAM ARTISTS! Double charged my credit card AFTER already paying through Priceline. Demanded to swipe card or we could not stay. Then changed the amount from what was shown on receipt. They should be put out of business. Who knows how many people they have ripped off. They claim that Priceline only holds a reservation. That they pay to Priceline. And that Priceline does not charge for bookings to the customer. Lying, scamming, thieves in a DIRTY motel. NEVER AGAIN!

It was relatively close to the U of F where I was working that week. It was generally clean and access was easy. Fairly close to some decent restaurants.

The wireless connection was weak and unstable making internet based work difficult.

The restaurant . The server was very nice. I only had a salad and chicken wings because I was afraid to eat anything. There was a terrible odor , possibly mildew in the restaurant and the room .

Everything. I was in the very last building. I thought it was a hotel. I was on the bottom floor. The room smelled. There was a dead bug in the bathroom, horrible towels. Had to pay $2.65 for coffee in the morning & it was horrible. Starbucks is cheaper!

rugs are not clean enough, the ac is noisy and the balcony/patio door cannot be opened.

Decent location in Gainesville. Nice outdoors area. Big porch which we used to have pizza with our friends.

Staff seemed aloof. The room was on the third floor...38 steps up. The sunken tub required some gymnastics to enter. Our room had a separate bathroom across the hall.

First. Do not use Priceline. They are unwilling to alter the reservation in any way, their call center has no authority to respond to customer needs, and the reservation resulted in probably the worst room in the B&B.

My husband and I recently attended a wedding and stayed at the Sweetwater Branch Inn. We stayed in the Camelot room, which was the most economical, and were absolutely delighted with our experience. The room was a decent size and had a private bathroom, but more importantly, it had a quality atmosphere. You can wonder throughout the old house, which oozes Southern hospitality and charm, with its victorian vibe. In the morning we awoke to a spectacular breakfast which we ate on the veranda. Such a nice stay! And much better than any hotel in the vicinity! (We stayed at a local hotel during our previous trip to G-ville and had to switch rooms because of the rancid mold smell)

Conveniently located close to the university. Several restaurants close by. Staff friendly and helpful. Very clean and neat. Comfortable bed. A continental breakfast is offered. I would like to have seen fresh pastries.

Shower head was loose and water sprayed on ceiling.

This is a above average hotel and my two day stay was great except for the spray from the shower head. Other than that and my wish for fresh pastries, doughnuts, etc and no cellophane wrapped 'Twinkie' style food.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
