I only stayed here one evening with some friends traveling south. The room was clean and had new decor. I had no complaints at all. Breakfast was buffet style and had anything you could want. Very delicious.

We specifically asked for an outdoor pool when we were making reservations. We were told there was an outdoor pool available for our stay. The pool was under maintence the entire time we were there.

The staff at this hotel was amazing. I arrived, because my son, a UF student was admitted into Shands Hospital through the ER.

This is a very nice hotel with nice amenities. Bed very comfortable. Elevators are fast :) Breakfast buffet is quite good. Nice outdoor pool. Wireless Internet in my room was awful, so don't get your hopes up about relying on it - four PC terminals in the lobby for guest use though. Would consider another stay.
