The hotel is clean and comfortable but really needs updating. The lobby is starting to feel rundown. The food service in the bar has been slow the past 2 trips. The bar could use some updating as well.

Spent just one night here, passing through Gainesville, but it was fantastic. Wonderful hotel. The room was great. Everything was very clean and the staff was great. They could have however, done a better job providing local info. We go just the basic, high-level overview of the area. I would have liked a little more personalized info. Otherwise, we loved...

The desk made no attempt to try to contact me when the room was ready...I had to repeatedly check back. The room was quiet and... More

Excellent location for our stay. We were doing the UF college tour the next day with our daughter and the hotel was across the street. Also, close to the area restaurants and shops. I am also a HHonors member and the rate was acceptable.

Staff and Hotel wonderful except for local information. Seemed to be at a loss when I said I wanted to walk to my destination!. No detailed map of the area and restaurants. They had a pretty pamphlet of local restaurants but no DETAILED MAP.

Sean, and Rachel are outstanding, very friendly and professional. Restaurant is clean, cool, comfortable and the food is great! Once you get checked-in make your way to the Bar or use the BEAUTIFUL swimming pool to cool off during the HOT summer days in Florida!
