Great place! Front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Clean with the touch of a Sheraton! In room coffee was good! Balcony! Refrigerator and microwave in room. Nice amenities for $59. We will visit again. I found this hotel on Trip Advisor!!! 😊

Unfortunately, health issues brought us to Gainesville. I had to have cancer surgery and was told that Paramount offered a "Shands" rate. Well, they did. However, I would rather have paid more. The electrical outlets were over used, not allowing things like my computer or wifes curling iron to stay plugged in, the iron didn't work, one of the outlets... More

The rooms are fine, prices are low but the highlights here are the amazing, genuinely helpful staff. Matthew and Godfrey helped me with check in and were so courteous in explaining all the ins and outs of the hotel that I felt at home right away! All the staff I encountered throughout my stay helped solidify this feeling and we... More

Overall this hotel's accommodations met my expectations! The room was nice and clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the lake view with wildlife below you was awesome! The front desk staff were helpful and friendly, it's also located in nice area where as everything is located pretty close from great restaurants to the "downtown area." Would definitely stay again... More

I had a flight out of the Gainesville airport that got cancelled so Delta put me up here. Now I travel a lot and one of the rules is to always stay at a name brand chain hotel so you know that the hotel will be ok. Now while the Plaza hotels have a few locations, they really do not... More

On a recent visit to Gainesville we took the opportunity to stay at this hotel, which is located a convenient 1.5 miles from Shands hospital. It is located on a lovely lake, a haven if you are in need of serenity in times of crisis, such as having a loved one at the hospital. The beds are comfortable, the sheets... More

Not as clean as Web site shows. Check in time is 3 pm. But rooms not ready. The pool is not warm or user friendly. The buffet breakfast that we paid for was cold. The only enjoyment about this hotel was the bartender/waiter named Jo Heeke. I would only choose this hotel for an overnight stay. Not to enjoy vacation... More

As always, we need to visit Shands Hospital, Gainesville for my son's follow up check up. We always stay at the Paramount. The staff are the best, rooms are always clean, safe area and convenient to the hospital. It's also down the street from UF. We caught a Gator baseball game against our USF guys. After the game, 5 minute... More

We found ourselves referred to the Paramount Plaza in time of crisis. It is very close to Shands Medical Center at UF Florida. Not knowing the area it was close and offered shuttle services to the hospital for guests. Initial presentation is nice. Restaurant/bar I would rate well above the hotel. Night one all was nice. Day two, towels taken... More
