Only a few miles from the racetrack
Clean room and friendly staff
There was only coffee it was good. The outside is old style, but the rooms inside were clean and modern.
The towels could have been nicer.
The only positive thing I can say about The Gainesville Lodge is the location. It is located right in a fun section of University Street near Main Street. Lots of things you could walk to.
The negative things I would list are; the place needs a good cleaning, floors, bathroom and mini fridge were quite dirty. The shower drain was clogged, the shower head was broken, the sink drain was broken and the toilet flushed as if it would overflow every time you flushed. The linens were thin and smelled like bleach and the soap and shampoo (no conditioner) were low quality. The bed was OK, maybe a 7 out of 10. Parking was tight but ample. This place is way overpriced! I would have expected to pay half what they charged us. I will say that they did unclog the shower drain when we asked them, however they left the bathroom window open for hours while we were gone!
Location to stadium, and places to eat and drink!
The AC worked well and the bed was comfortable.
The shower didn't drain and the ceiling in the bathroom dripped (from the floor above I was guessing) through a hole by the light fixture.
With a stay at Gainesville Lodge in Gainesville (University Heights), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of University of Florida and Shands at the University of Florida. Free self parking is available onsite.
