Verified Reviews of Motel 7 Gainesville North

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Until Ben Stops being the Owner, I Don't See Any Hope in This Hotel."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was the worst hotel experience I've ever had and it was so embarrassing to get so many complaints from my wedding guests. The owner, Ben, needs to do a better job of renovating the hotel and setting acceptable hotel standards. The only bright side was the front desk manager Chris and the rooms manager, another Chris, both of whom tried their best to accommodate us and fix some of the major faults: 1) Only two renovated rooms which Ben uses as his living quarters so they are not "vacant" unless you can appeal to his better nature to vacate to another room. 2) The staff invaded privacy and robbed my guests. 3) The pet policy was clearly printed in the hotel lobby and at the last minute, Ben wanted to change it to not include pets in the renovated rooms (of course, since those are his personal rooms, he thinks he can give his guests special rules for them). 4) Only two towels per room when some rooms had four people! 5) Complimentary shampoo, but no conditioner. Who does that? 6) Due to the decrepit state of the hotel, we had to individually inspect every room before the guests checked in to make sure they were acceptably clean. 7) Although through Expedia group booking the bid posted was $65, it took a lot of arguing with Ben to get him to agree to that rate. He wanted to charge me $95 for that dump! I understand this is a cheap value hotel so I was not expecting much, but I was also not expecting to have to fight with the owner on everything. Complete lack of customer service on his part. Only Chris and Chris were pleasant to deal with. The rest of the staff was as equally disappointing as Ben. The only other positive I can say is that the pool was clean.

"Housekeeping and Maintenance Needs Improvement."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Housekeeping did not clean the room in a consistent way. Our garbage didn't get emptied. Maintenance needed to fix the electrical outlets and the air conditioner for major squeaking.

"Not Too Bad for the Price."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The entry from the road is not very appealing. I understand renovation. Room did not have slip lock for added security. Quiet hotel. Ice machine broken.
