What a pleasant surprise it was to stumble upon this cozy hotel. This was one of those "what's not to like?" kind of places where you have to literally look for things to be disappointed about. The rooms could be bigger, the toaster could have both levers instead of just one, the mouse on the computer could have worked better... More

This hotel is amazing for what they offer. While it may be a bit smaller it has a lot of charm. The lobby itself is extremely comfortable, as I did some work during the free happy hour and popcorn, and felt right at home. The fireplace in the center is the highlight of the lobby, besides the friendly staff of... More

Nice accommodations for the price. Rooms and beds were clean. Noise level was a little higher than I would have liked. But, it's a busy place, so it's understandable. Very conveniently located for the traveler.

First time staying there as my wife had a 8am appointment at UF-Shands the next day and we are 2 hours away. We have never experienced so many extra services, e,g, a full cocktail hour every night from 5:30 to 730pm. Fried chicken, plus, and popcorn. The rooms are large and very clean and the front people are great. They... More

I hate to review this Hotel as their won't be any availability when I'm in Gainesville the next time! But I have to agree with all the others. The Lodge went through a big facelift last year and it is beautiful and not extremely expensive. They give AAA and Military discounts. The hot breakfast was very good and filling to... More

Hotel is convenient to UF activities and to Shands Hospital if that is why one is in Gainesville. Take 34th ST or Gale Lemerand Dr. to UF for activities; straight down Archer for Shands. The hotel itself is designed to be "lodge-like" with a nice fireplace and faux antler chandeliers. It is a bit nicer than new Hampton Inns and... More

We stayed here on our way back home from Venice, Florida. We payed the price of a motel for our last minute room and got a beautiful hotel with great accommodations. We wished we would of stayed here the whole trip! Everything is clean, everything is updated, and the amenities are plentiful.
