The bed was one of the best. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. Popcorn and cookies available free in the lobby and the manager available 24 hours for any concerns were a plus.

I stay here often as business sends me to Gainesville. Very comfortable and the staff tends to your every need. Breakfast is provided and is very good. The breakfast staff is very friendly and accommodating. Coffee is available in the lobby throughout the day and evening. Popcorn and cookies are also available. Rae Ann Higgins is the Guest Services Manager... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting friends in Gainesville. We were very pleased with our stay - Rae Ann at the front desk was very friendly and hospitable. It was nice having cookies and popcorn in the lobby each day, and the breakfast was also good. The room was comfortable, very roomy with a couch,... More

We stayed here for two nights and found this hotel to be a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When we checked in there was real popcorn popping and fresh cookies in the lobby. Our room was spotless and the beds were extremely comfortable. The pillows were a little unusual. There were several smaller square... More

My husband is a double amputee and for that reason has to have a bathroom with a shower bench but preferably with a roll in shower. We got to the hotel early ready for what invariably happens when we get to hotels - rooms that don't meet our needs and folks who are insensitive to the needs of individuals with... More

Hotel is clean and in a good location. Rooms were comfortable enough. The staff seems to spend a lot of time smoking just outside the lobby doors. Breakfast was the normal free continental breakfast offered in similar hotels. They have a discount rate for people going to Shands Hospital. Make sure to call and ask if that's what brings you...

Checked in at midnight and the front desk gave us a discount for late arrival which we didn't ask for. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There are numerous free toiletries if you have forgotten anything. As my husband went back out to the car, they were cleaning out the popcorn machine. They insisted we... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and quality of the room. The staff was very nice and the check in process went without a hitch. There was definitely cookies and popcorn ready in the lobby which was refreshing. I didn't have time to enjoy breakfast, but it looked adequate.

We were late arrivals on April 17, 2015, and were welcomed by friendly staff. Cookies and popcorn were still available at 10PM even with a full hotel. The 3rd floor room was clean and comfortable. What surprised us was the breakfast area, it was spacious and the food and beverage choices were not bunched together so people could move around.... More
