One thing I hate about TripAdvisor is all these reviews are unverifiable. What that means is most of these reviews for this motel have been written by the motel. Look at most of the reviewers only have 1 review on Tripadvisor. Notice the management responses to all these "great reviews." Booked late on an App called Hotel Tonight and after... More

This is first time I ever went to the paramount plaza. Overall I was very satisfied by the clean rooms and the price. I especially liked the food they provided. The chef named Daniel there is amazing!

This facility has even been a Hilton, and the rooms are enormous, the pool is delicious, and overlooks a classic Florida lake with moss-covered trees at the edge. A good exercise room, and a patio for every room. I've visited Gainesville many times, and always try to stay there. When there's not a convention, rates are very reasonable. Big thanks... More

Both times we had an easy check-in, friendly staff, clean lobby and very clean room. I know when I go back through we will stay there. Also, it is family owned and we try to... More

This was my 1st time in Gainesville and staying at the Paramount made it even better. I had a deluxe double Lakeview and the pool was right outside my room door. All of the staff were friendly. I loved that you had to use your room key to enter the buildings. It made me feel safe and secure. I highly... More

Don't let the bland exterior fool you. The hallways have not been updated and are a bit dark and "industrial" but the rooms have. They are roomy, clean, modern and have a view of the lake. Ours had a view of some old live oaks and if you leaned over, you could see the lake. All rooms have a sliding... More

Stayed here in April for a couple days as I was completing a continuing education course. It is a far cry from "fancy" but it has everything you need. The staff are also very friendly and even kept a parcel I had delivered to the hotel safely stored so that it would be ready by the time I arrived. They... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Paramount Plaza Hotel and Conference Center stands out amongst the best accommodations in Gainesville, Florida. Bordered by the picturesque Bivens Arm Lake Nature Preserve, the hotel is Gainesville's only lakefront hotel, offering a taste of Florida the way it used to be. Currently being renovated in 2012-13 the Paramount Plaza Hotel & Conference Center offers full service Gainesville hotel lodging at surprisingly affordable rates. Convenient Gainesville Hotel Location The Paramount Plaza is ideally located only minutes from Gainesville's most important and popular attractions and venues, such as the University of Florida, the Butterfly Rain forest, Paynes Prarie State Park, the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and Shands Teaching Hospital at The University of Florida. The hotel is a short drive North of historic Micanopy and antique shopping, and just a few miles from downtown Gainesville. Each of our 197 large NON-SMOKING, comfortable guest rooms and suites are designed to meet your Gainesville accommodation needs. Our guest rooms are larger than most hotels in the area, which leaves you with plenty of space to create your home away from home. In-room guest amenities include coffeemakers, wireless internet access, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards. Unwind on one of our comfortable pillow-top beds and catch up on your relaxation with remote controlled cable television. The Paramount Plaza offers free shuttle services from 730am to 530pm daily upon scheduling at check-in. ... more   less
