After a long day of driving from Ohio on the way to a funeral, we were looking forward to a comfortable nights sleep. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was great. Probably one of the best we have had as hotel breakfasts go. I would stay again. I thought it was a little pricey, but that is the way... More

This was my third time staying at this particular hotel, ALWAYS a great experience! Staff is helpful as well as friendly! The rooms have always been clean and comfy! To me breakfast is the icing on the cake! A very good selection. You can have a decent size hot breakfast (mine contained eggs, bacon, and fried potatoes) while my husband... More

Clean and good breakfast. But look online for better deals. Calling for reservation and you get an expensive price. Close to University of Florida. Nice pool. TV service was very limited to just HBO. Most hotels have more than one I thought.

Thank you for your feedback. I appreciate your thoughts, I know rates can be overwhelming at times. We do have many special event dates which increase the rates. We do stay competitive with other comparable properties. I hope we can get you a rate you're more comfortable with on your next trip. More

Wonderful hotel for a group. Great value for the money. Nice rooms with microwaves and refrigerators. We enjoyed the full breakfast every morning, as well as the cookies and coffee/hot chocolate in the evenings. Great location as well. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here in July (2014) on our way down to Disney World, and it was so great! All of the young ladies working at the front desk were very friendly and super helpful. Our room was a junior suite, and very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The continental breakfast is expansive, including a waffle machine. The Country... More

Great hotel for my family of 5. Large, clean room with sleeper sofa, microwave and mini-fridge was perfect for traveling with children. Freshly baked cookies, coffee and tea in the lobby was a great snack for us all. Delicious, full breakfast. Staff was very attentive. Very close to restaurants and stores. The only complaint was the WiFi was not working... More

The one night stay was just ok. I have had better experience at this hotel before. The beds were really lumpy that resulted in a poor night sleep. Everything else was doable. The free breakfast was well stocked and very good.

I stayed one night and didn't have time to use any of the amenities so I will only rate the room. Being the number one rated lodging in Gainesville I expected more than I saw. I stayed in one of their suites on the third floor. The room is spacious and clean but there is a lot of evidence of... More
