Very nice hotel in Gainesville. On 441, convenient location with very nice rooms. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The grounds have mature trees and most rooms have a balcony that over looks the trees. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony working on my computer while my family watched tv. I will enjoy staying here again in... More

Stayed at the Paramount Plaza approx. 5 yrs. ago and was looking forward to my recent re-visit. Had fond memories of a clean, comfortable, moderately priced hostelry. The ensuing years have not been kind. Nothing horrific but fading fast. Both the exterior and interior need serious maintenance. The stucco walls should be pressure washed and painted. The terra cotta roofing... More

Welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Very comfortable and spacious room. Good bed, Everything in room and common areas was super clean. Location on lake adds vacation feeling even though in the middle of town. Sit on balcony and listen to the birds singing in the trees. Great pool area. Heard no sounds of other guests even though the hotel seemed to... More

We traveled to visit our daughter who attends UF, I mainly wanted a nice place to stay with a great pool. The pool was an important factor on this trip, and the reason I did not give this place 5 stars. PROS: We stay in the suite that had a balcony view of the lake. The room was large, if... More

I was expecting a little more in the way of updates, since I'm sure I saw something in a review somewhere that said it was totally remodeled a couple of years ago. I'd have to question that, but still, it was a good stay for the money spent. Had a late night burger at the bar and it was very... More

I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. The hotel has been remodeled in the past few years but admittedly we do not have the best of the best of everything. We are always working on the grounds and improving everything we can but it is not something that gets done overnight. Gradual process is being made every day... More

We stayed one night as we were passing thru. It was a little pricey and the room was way out dated. Had a couple of strange charges on my credit card and still haven't resolved that issue. There was no real blanket on the bed it only had 3 sheets and a mattress topper....that's right a mattress topper that goes... More

I apologize for any inconveniences you had during your stay. There must have been some sort of mix up with the bedding in your room, we should have a standard comforter along with the sheets in every room. We have spare blankets that can be brought to you upon request as well. Regardless, I am sorry that your stay was... More

Finally, they have great leadership! The restaurant was well equipped to handle our large group. Plenty of options and reasonable buffet prices. The staff was friendly and well organized. The pool is the most pristine. Older hotel, but still 5 stars!!

We were in Gainsville because my newborn granddaughter was at Shands. They gave us a great rate! When my son received a place at Ronald McDonald house they refunded him for the day he paid even though it was already 4 pm in the afternoon. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I will definitely stay here again.

I've been staying here weekly for work and I figured it was time I posted a review! The thing that makes this hotel stand out is its staff. At the front desk, Travis starts checking me in before I even walk through the door because he recognizes my car. On the shuttles, Marcel starts my day off with awesome conversations... More
