This hotel is tucked right next to I75 so sleepy travelers can hop off and catch some quick zzz or if you plan to stay in Gainesville this is a very good option! Checking in was a breeze! Service was top notch! Every employee greeted me with a smile and treated me well! Breakfast was beautiful. The guy running it... More

I recently stayed at this hotel in Gainesville, FL. I enjoyed my stay it was close to the city and mall. The rooms were neat and clean and the people who worked there were really nice and friendly. As I mentioned in the title, this hotel serves fresh cookies and popcorn in the evening. The complimentary breakfast was great too.... More

Very nice hotel for the price. Area felt safe. Close to UF and many stores and restaurants. Definitely not a luxury hotel, but for the very reasonable rate, I was happy with the accommodations. There was no elevator, so if mobility is an issue, be sure to request the 1st floor. Vending machines, plus popcorn and cookies in the lobby... More

The room was reasonably quiet, considering how close the property is to the highway; but it was not completely clean and the bedding was really skimpy. I would stay there again in a pinch but would not recommend it.

I have stayed in this hotel twice. Both stays were wonderful. The facility is always clean, even during the renovations, and the staff is incredible. The breakfast is one of the best I have had. I will always reserve a room here when I am in Gainesville.

Renovations are ongoing. I still stand by the fact that the staff, all staff is simply amazing! New Tip: Game day free shuttle from hotel is a huge plus, with very fast to and from game trips. The hotel offers free game tailgate food. Very pleased with service.

Wow, everything in this hotel was in like-new condition. It was very clean and well maintained and even the staff seemed fresh and new! :-) Check in was a breeze. Our room was on the third floor overlooking the pool. Nice view. The room was very large and comfortable. Our beds were excellent for sleeping! Breakfast was good. Scrambled eggs,... More

I must say I was a bit leery of staying at this hotel. I am a Marriott Platinum Elite member & normally stay at Marriott brands, However all the Marriott hotels were sold out for the first Florida football game. I decided to stay here based on the Tripadvisor reviews and I must admit I was not disappointed. From the... More
