The room, staff and the extras were All worth the stay. Staff treated my family like part of their family. Cost of the stay was great value. I will be sure to stay at this hotel again. I hope this review will help some of you all make up your minds to stay at this hotel.

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. I enjoyed the hot tub. Its always nice to have a hotel that supplies a fitness center and although it was small and limited the equipment were newish and worked.

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfast and fitness center. Isn't it wonderful to get into the nice warm indoor pool and hot tub when it's cold outside? I hope you will stay with us again on your next trip to Gainesville. More

I was traveling to Gainesville to attend my mother's memorial service. I made my reservations well in advance, but when I arrived the room that had been reserved for me was too small to meet my needs. No effort to correct the mistake was ever made. There is a Cracker Barrel behind this hotel. Go there instead of eating at... More

We stayed here because it was close to UF and have stay here many times before. We like this hotel because it is a small but an efficient place to stay. Restaurants are real close and it is off the highway.

I found myself unexpectedly needing a hotel room in Gainesville, Florida when my wife was admitted to a local hospital while on travel. The hotel staff was top notch and took great care to make arrangements for me even when my length of stay was indeterminate during the early part of my wife's stay in the hospital. Each day I...

I should not have booked through expedia, that seemed to automatically put us in a lower service tier. Expedia booked us into a smoking room after requesting a non-smoking room. Upon check in, we were told that there were NO OTHER rooms available at the hotel. They did offer to "deodorize" the room and while that was being done, we... More

I am so sorry for your experience here at our hotel. Please believe, this is not what you should expect from our hotel or our brand! I can only say that our front desk staff was slightly inexperienced and we have done some retraining as a result of this incident to ensure it does not happen again. I hope that... More

We needed to stay some where reasonable but yet nice and one big plus was the indoor pool that was open til midnight. This location was very clean and nice, we received such wonderful service from all of the staff that interacted with us during our stay. After a long day of pre op with our son we enjoyed a... More

Hotel looks good on the outside. Inside is a little old'ish. The water in my room smelled like sulfur. The bed was too hard for my liking. Breakfast was good. They had a lot to choose from. Staff was friendly and helpful. I don't think I would stay here again though.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm not sure why your water had an odor, we have city water. We are scheduled to begin renovating/updating things this month. I hope you will give us another chance to make a better impression. More

My recent stay was awesome. The staff were great, extremely accommodating and willing to assist in any way they could. Only downfall is the 'smoking rooms' right next door to 'nonsmoking room'. I would suggest going 'smoke free on the whole property'. Because of the proximity of the smoking rooms, my non-smoking room smelled.

Have stayed here many times normally 5 to 6 days at a time. Very popular hotel with really nice accommodations and rooms with an indoor pool. The bathrooms are very nice with granite countertops. Staff is friendly and helpful. Good hot breakfasts with sitting area (not a continental breakfast) and they always have waffles that you make yourself. Easy access... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. I think you just about said it all besides the 24 hour business center and fitness center. I do appreciate the extra tips too. It's true, if you are a light sleeper you should always make a request for a quiet room so that you will have a more enjoyable stay. More
