My husband and I have stayed here a few time when visiting the University of Florida to watch the softball team play and we have had a great experience every time. The Lodge has a great breakfast buffet and our favorite part is the happy hour and popcorn in the afternoons. There is also a great fire place in the... More

On our way home from our spring break trip we needed a place to stay. Searched the internet, checked trip advisor and The Lodge was our choice. Excellent customer service. Clean room. Breakfast was worth it. Don't be afraid to stay here since it's not a "chain" resort, you won't be disappointed. The fireplace in the lobby was amazing. We... More

Gainesville hotels are very average at best. They are over priced, and the service is suspect. I'll keep it short and simple. The hotel had a nice mountain lodge feel. The service was good. The breakfast was serviceable. The room was clean and quite large. The price was what you would expect to pay in Gainesville. There's a rumor that... More

We stayed here two nights while on holiday and it is a lovely hotel and Gainesville is a very nice place. Staff are friendly, rooms are big and clean, breakfast was plentiful and the hotel offered excellent value. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again. Many thanks.

This hotel was very clean! We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. The room was very spacious. The staff working the front desk was very friendly. It is within walking distance to Target and several places to eat. Would stay here again if in the area.

I was worried after reading the last reviews. I stayed here for a weekend in Gainesville. The Lobby is spectacular and promotes socializing with other guests. It is an open plan around the fireplace and there is a cozy spot in every corner of the lobby. The breakfast is plentiful and the hotel does not skimp on the complimentary happy... More

I stayed here 20 years ago and it's almost the same as it was then. That being said, it is fairly clean. Sounds like details are being missed here and there but I didn't really notice them. We were at the pool a lot, anyway. The breakfast and cocktail hour were enough to justify any uncertainty that we made a... More

Nice room, social hour with free sodas, pop corn and alcoholic beverages from 5:30 to 7:30 was great. Breakfast not so good. By 8:30am they were out of donuts and fruit. There is only one regular and one decaf coffee so be prepared to wait in line. Staff was very professional and courteous but check in not so easy. Only... More

Thanks for taking the time to let us know of the issues you had with our breakfast.
