We just completed a two day institute at the Gateway Grand. The staff was responsive to our needs and did everything they could to make our event successful. Melvin's positive attitude and prompt service with a smile was a pleasure to work with!

Ran short of nearly everything and slow to restock. Tables dirty, trash bins overflowing, staff snooty. Hallway carpets dirty. Hot tub not very hot. Smokers clustered at the entrances - had to walk thru clouds of 2nd hand smoke.

in the process of updates. Very nice with large room. Very nice pool area all fenced in. I have never stayed where you had to pay extra for eggs for breakfast. Most hotels offer some type of eggs and meat at no extra charge. Bed and pillows were great. Would defiantly stay here again.

My husband, our dog Sophie & I along with another couple and their two small dogs, stopped here in route to Sanibel Island. We could not have picked a better place to take a break! The front desk staff was extremely helpful, cheerful and accommodating! They even gave us treats for our pups and made them feel welcome as well!... More

I have been staying at this Hotel several times a year for the last 10 years. I children attended U of F throughout this time and now reside in the area. The quality of the beds is a problem. The least you should expect from a decent Hotel is a good nights sleep. Although the facility is clean and the... More

Conveniently located with easy access off I-75. It looks good from the outside and even better on the inside. The rooms are very nice and the bedding is quite comfortable. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The only improvement I would recommend is to have access from inside to the restaurant/bar.

I've stayed here a few times and never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and professional. The room is spacious, clean and quite. The rate is outstanding. The free breakfast they offer is good, they also offer for a price to cook you fresh omelettes if you desire. They have a restaurant and lounge on site, called the gators den,... More

The property was very nice and the room was good. However, if you are expecting a hot breakfast beyond baked goods you can forget it. When we went down for breakfast, to our surprise, there was an extra charge if we wanted hot eggs. There was not the usual scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, etc. When travelling we depend on...
