Overview
Located about a 3-minute drive from the nearest Interstate 75 on-ramp and adjacent to the Town Center Shopping Center, the Days Inn Gainesville is geared towards road travellers who require an economical hotel with a free breakfast, an outdoor pool and easy highway access.

This hotel's air-conditioned guest rooms each come equipped with free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a desk, a coffeemaker and a hair dryer. The hotel does not offer wheelchair-accessible rooms and pets are permitted for an additional $10 per pet, per night.
