This time around, the room was much better. There was a big family reunion staying there, but no problem with noise. The problem was too many people and no place in Lobby to sit or move around. Breakfast room was the same. Not enough food or room to sit. Best decision for us was to head down I 75 and... More

I'm sorry you were disatisfied with breakfast and the lobby area. We are set for a renovation of that area this year. Although it seems you had a better stay, you rated us lower this year than last. Please feel free to contact me with any feedback you may have on making improvements and thanks for giving us another chance. More

We had a group stay at this hotel on a Saturday evening for a sports event. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean. The location was convenient to the highway and to eating locations. The lobby is a little small and does not offer a place to visit with guests. The rooms were basic but... More

This is a very nice hotel. Front office staff super engaging and wanting to make my stay nice. I'd stay here again! The location to the university is great. Continental breakfast was good, fresh fruit, oatmeal and waffles.

Easy access to I-75, staff was exceptional with our requests which made our workshop a success. I will be using their facilities again in the future. When doing business in Gainesville Florida, this should be your destination stay.

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!

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.
