I came to this place about 2 years ago (August 2012), so I can't remember every detail. What I do remember though is that it was a very pleasant stay. We took a suite, which was really nice and spacious. Their sofa bed is really good :P Breakfast was really good too. Open mini-buffet. It's a cozy hotel that feels... More

As previously mentioned, spotlights at the front of the hotel shining into the room ruined what should've been an almost perfect visit. The room-darkening shades were no match for those lights. I was in Room 207 and when I left before dawn, it was obvious that the room not only got light from one, but two of the spotlights! And... More

Outdoor spotlights totally inundate your room and keep you up all night (even with nightshades)! Breakfast coffee in plastic cups :-(. Front desk staff extra-friendly (except for someone who appeared to be a manager.

This hotel was a good value. The continental breakfast was ok, nothing spectacular but a decent selection. Staff was very friendly. The fitness center has 2 treadmills, a bike and elliptical with 2 sets of dumbbells. Rooms are average.

Selected this hotel due to Trip Advisor reviews. Rated #1 in Gainesville. Stayed 4 nights in the same room - two queens, microwave, refrigerator, safe. Cons: Front desk personal were foreign born, a bit difficult to understand and communicate with although friendly. Same with the cleaning help. Friendly but did not understand our English. We tipped housekeeping and breakfast staff.... More

I was visiting a friend at Shands Hospital and stayed in this hotel because it was located nearby. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room and hotel were clean and the price was affordable. This is a great choice for families or business travelers.

In town for the August 30th Gators game that never happened, my husband and I booked 2 nights at this hotel, and we're glad we did! We've never stayed at a Country Inn & Suites before, but after this experience, we are very likely to again. The rooms were lovely, clean, and nicely appointed. I especially appreciated the warm home-like... More

We wanted to thank the staff for placing us in a room away from Florida football fans who seemed to think the property was a cheap party bar. They were loud and obnoxious. I'd check the calendar to make sure there is not a Florida home game before staying here. Any other time, this is a great place to stay.

Let me apologize on behalf of Gator fans! Some of us do tend to get a little rowdy however, anytime you are here and have an issue with noise or the like, please let us know right away. You are equally important to the fans here for the game and we will not hesitate to enforce hotel policy if someone... More
