I live in GA but needed a place to stay on my way out of the state. I stopped in Gainesville and decided on the Guest Lodge given the reviews....the reviews were right! The staff was very friendly and helpful and got me to my room quickly. The room exceeded my expectations with the fact that it had been newly...

We got rooms with two queen beds and they were large and comfortable. Cannot beat the view for the rooms facing the courtyard, nice lighting, very nice staff and to top it off the rooms were very large with good bit of amenities. I would stay here again.

We're on the road 47 weekends a year. We don't like to spend a fortune on hotels and are always looking for a nice place at a reasonable price. Most reasonable priced stays scrimp on everything else. We also like to support "mom and pop" local places where we can, but quality in the "mom and pops" seems to be...

From the outside this looked like a great little motel to stay at, on the inside rooms needed a total remodel from Hotel Impossible. Room had a King size bed with the cheapest mattress that you could buy. When you entered the bathroom the shower curtain was tucked down in the soap holder mounted to the wall which at the...

The outside is very nice and somewhat misleading. Pool area is very cute and well maintained, looks great to sit and relax after a day of travel. Rooms are dated. Furniture shows wear and age, beds and pillows need to be upgraded. Attention to the rooms will make this the best Kept secret of G-ville, GA.

I traveled to Georgia for a conference and decided to take the family. Finding this very nice family friendly hotel was a special surprise. The staff was courteous and the rooms were newly renovated and decorated nicely. I will be sure to keep this one in mind for annual boating vacations. Its close to several nice large lakes and have...

We went out of our planned route to stay here because of a coupon book special, but the rate was not honored. Would not have minded paying more if the room had deserved it, but it had a number of areas that needed addressing: 1) bathroom was shabby and bathtub grouting needed bleaching. 2) the lighting and number of outlets...

Imagine being locked inside of a refrigerator.... accidentally of course and as your stomping around in the dark you step on your grandmothers heavy perfume bottle and it breaks!
