Stayed over thanksgiving weekend. Was a little concerned due to some of the reviews. Hotel was clean, updated, and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable, the pillows marked soft or firm, and additional amenities refreshed daily. The room was large. The breakfast was small but adequate, with pancakes sausage etc. Will try to stay there again.

We stopped off here recently during a trip to Florida. The hotel really couldn't be more convenient to I-75, literally RIGHT off the highway. Now if you have a room facing the highway, you can probably hear the traffic so if you're a light sleeper you might want to request a parking lot facing room. Lobby was clean, room was... More

The hotel has completed their renovation. This is the only hotel I have seen that has ceiling fans in the rooms. The staff is consistently friendly & professional. The hotel is directly next to Cracker Barrel. Down the street is Target & Walgreens. The fitness center is nothing special but works for a good workout.

My wife and I usually stay here during our yearly visits to our son and his family in the area. The service, cleanliness, and quality keep us coming back each time. Truly a great place to stay here in the area. The only shortcoming is the breakfast service. Seems that the efficiency of whoever takes care of restocking the breakfast... More

Looks newer. Nice staff. A good holiday Inn breakfast. The bathroom was small and could use a little updating. The room was nice clean and looked good too. It was a quiet hotel no road noise at least on the side I was on. Parking could be a little difficult if you're pulling a trailer.

Being only 90 minutes north of Orlando airport we chose this hotel as a convenient stopping off point on our way to Atlanta. It is situated 2 minutes from the I75 and our room (301) did suffer from a small amount of noise from the road. Despite not arriving until 11.00pm due to a flight delay the welcome was warm... More

On a 1 day business trio to Gainesville, I brought a friend along so she could see the other side of Florida. I chose this location, although it was farther from the Courthouse, because I know it would be more relaxing. The other Holiday Inn is right where the University area is and I'm sure there would be plenty of... More

So I find myself in Gainesville again as Mom is still in hospital, this time I choose Holiday Inn Express, just off 1-75 and Archer Road. Hidden behind Cracker Barrel of all things! This place is quiet!! Very nice outdoor heated pool. I can't say enough about the staff here. Having a tough week, they were exceptional! The place is... More

We stayed on the Holiday Inn Express for 1 night on the route to Atlanta. The room was very clean, and fairly spacious. The bed was wonderful!! I had a excellent night sleep. The breakfast was good too. All in all a good nights stay.
