This was the only available room in town due to the Gator game this weekend but I had to be in town for a family member in the hospital. Upon arrival I notice the grounds are clean and neat, the pool is right next to highway and parking lot, not very quiet. The reception area is nice and the lounge... More

For a property that on a weekday had many business travelers and a rat over $100 before tax the rooms need some updating. Only one phone and not at working space. A slight damp odor from the ac, the bed was ok but matress had a tear or two, the bathroom needed the most help. Decent breakfast and a nice... More

Friendly staff and amenities make it a great stay in Gainesville. Lots of space for socializing with friends and to spread out at complementary breakfast and happy hour. Pool and hot tub in great shape. Well located right off off I-75, (walking distance) from tons of restaurants, 3.5 miles from Florida Stadium.

Rooms were modern, clean and staff was great. Pleasantly surprised with the price compared to the value. Close to the highway. A great place for kids too. Stayed just one night but will definitely stay again in the future.

The Lodge is an affordable place to stay in Gainesville. The rooms are average for hotel rooms. The happy hour is a nice touch, but the breakfast has degraded over time. I really wish they would replace their mixed fruit in the morning--they could get a much better mix of fruit than what they serve. The coffee was so bad... More

We had a great time! One of the staff members Bianca was a great help at the front desk and made some good drinks later during their complimentary happy hour. The hotel was beautiful, loved the mountain lodge feel. Would definetly recommend for others.

Convenient location to highway and UF campus. Enjoyed our stay. We were there as part of a 3-day conference. They had some trouble servicing the happy hour and breakfast for a large crowd. We would return if we needed to be in the area in the future.
