One of the major aspects that stood out was the service and friendliness. Every morning at the restaurant, I was greeted with big smiles. Wagih William would go out of his way just to stop and talk with me. I stayed at this hotel for a long period of time and it really made me feel like home. On top... More

I stay at this location often. Never a problem..Clean, well run, and GATOR friendly. The breakfast buffet is well done. Good location near U.F. Friendly staff ,with the exception of the once and a while haughty front desk staff. Nice Bar...a bit expensive...$7.40 for 1 Shocktop beer. Easy access to I-75 and insurance world at Nationwide, down the block.

Pretty much perfect except there is no complimentary wifi in the rooms. I had to book my flight and next hotel stay in the business center which is a table in the lobby with 2 computers, so not too much privacy. The hotel lobby is beautiful and all of the staff were very warm and welcoming. The rooms were very... More

Diamond HHonors member here. The Gainesville Hilton ranks right up there withy any big city Hilton. The room decor exceeded that of most hotels, the rooms & all facilities were very clean, the service was excellent & the breakfast buffet as good as any. Highly recommended.

This Hilton is one of the nicer properties in the Gainesville area. I had jut completed a very long day and drive and happened into this as an HHonors member and was not disappointed. Very nice lobby bar and good bar food. I caught the World Series game and had some wings, which were great. This is a nice property... More

The front desk receptionist, although very chirpy, did not acknowledge I was a Hilton Honors member so I had to ask if my information was on their computer. They also did not provide their usual complimentary bottled water. I must also add that, although our room was a few doors down from the elevator, we could still hear people slamming... More

One of the nicest Hotels in Gainesville around 10 years ago when it was built, but has fallen into general disrepair. Literally smelled like sewage in the hall. Room was just as bad with damp musty floors. I had to keep my shoes on in the room. Shower had short brown curly hairs and a slimy feel. Broken phone, broken... More
