The quality has gone way down since the last year when it was a Days Inn. Seems that the "new management" fired everyone and are running this place as a generic hotel. There are no more friendly people and the quality is very poor now. I will not return especially with so many other options in the city.

I have stayed at this hotel a few time when I come to Gainesville to visit my daughter and this time was the best stay that I have had there yet. The lady at the front desk when I checked in Sunday morning was extremely sweet and helpful. They are working on upgrades right now and so far so good....

We usually stay at Days Inn when we travel and have not had any previous issues. We were exhausted and needed a place to stay and we found this one in Gainesville...the room was dirty and had large holes in the wall. We checked the beds and they were clean, which at that point was all we needed.. If we...
