Nothing going back home was the highlight of my stay. There was a whole in the wall with tissue shoved inside of it, to keep water from coming in to the room. There was an old box of Donuts inside a dresser drawer. The donuts appeared to be 2 wks old.

I did not have any hot water when taking a shower. The towels that were available for my use, were stained yellow. The bed sheets were stained with red marks, they appeared to be blood stains. There was an old box of Donuts inside a dresser drawer. Nasty!

The front desk clerk was very helpful at correcting the mistake Priceline did in booking our room which was specifically 1 bedroom with king size bed. When we got to the hotel room, we were told that Priceline booked a double bed room. Disappointing.

Every room smelled like a locker room. I'm assuming it is because we are close to UF.

Smelly room. Great Staff. Beautiful area but rooms need to be aired out. ... more

The room layout was much more spacious than other hotels we've stayed in recently in the same room rate ($) category. The complimentary breakfast was also better than average. In the future we will look for opportunities to stay with Residence Inn.

No

Our stay at the Gainesville, FL Residence Inn was a very pleasant experience. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, the full kitchen was put to good use, the free internet service served our 15 year old son very nicely, the staff was quite gracious and we had all in all a very enjoyable stay. During the same trip we stayed with other unnamed high end hotel chains that do not offer anything near that same accommodations/services. In my opinion Residence Inn demonstrated their culture for customer care to be clearly superior to their competition. ... more

A surprise $10 EXTRA charge per night for fridge and microwave. 'Hot' water was only tepid at best. Had to shower with only the Hot water tap on. Staff said owner sets the thermostat low to 'conservative energy and prevent scalding'.

Somehow I had gotten the impression that La Quinta Inns were a little upscale, so it never occurred to me to reserve a fridge with my room. I felt charging an extra $20 for the two night stay over the Priceline price was a scam - bait & switch. The 3 staff personnel I interacted with were all polite, competent and helpful. ... more

This hotel was totally fine for the money, but I believe it was rated as 3-stars when I booked it on Kayak. It is NOT a three-star hotel. It is a budget hotel.

We booked our rooms at The Lodge and were thankful to get a room since it was a Gator Football game weekend. Our second night was outrageously expensive, but guess the rooms can command the price. The rooms are attractive and have all the necessary accoutrements. Our only complaint is that the pillows were large and uncomfortable. Otherwise, everything was great. ... more

We booked 2 rooms, so the price was the best thing about this hotel. The staff was friendly.

I booked a non-smoking room but was given a smoking room because the non-smoking rooms were over-booked. The was hair on the pillows, cobwebs in the corners and the TV remote did not work in my room and the phone in the other room we booked didn't work.

For a low budget room near the college or a stop to your destination this place is OK. However, The house keeping appears to be lax because there were cobwebs in every corner of my room and I am not sure the sheets on my bee changed after the last customer because I found hairs on the pillow cases when I pulled back the covers. Check your room as soon as you get there for damage because they make you sign a damage waiver when you check in. I was told this is because they are so close to the college that they tend to get rowdy customers during special college events and weekends. ... more

The staff was friendly; the hotel was clean and neat in both the rooms and all of the public spaces we visited.

The beds are small (full or double mattresses?). The rooms are also small.

This is the lowest 'Three-star' hotel that we have ever experienced since using Priceline. Though the location is fantastic, the hotel is antiquated. The breakfast is 'free', unless you want eggs...which are $3. The hotel does not appear to have quite enough staff. That said, all staff encountered were friendly and tried to help. The onsite restaurant was clean, though kind of a party-spot. We opted to have dinner elsewhere with our younger children. ... more

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.
