I have been coming from Tampa and staying at the Paramount Plaza for several years for follow up appointments at the Davis Cancer Pavilion.Excellent Service. Love my room , balcony and view. Really like the convenience of an excellent restaurant (the Lakeside Grill) on site. I think, best of all, I like the shuttle service to the Cancer Pavilion. After... More

I have stayed in the Paramount Plaza twice now on visits to see my daughter at UF. The location is perfect-halfway between the downtown restaurants, UF campus, and the Archer Road-I 75 congestion of stores. It is secluded and peaceful. The staff, especially Godfrey and John L. were extremely helpful and accomodating as we arrived at an odd time. The... More

The hotel is a dated, to the eye, sliders are old doors are old. The rooms however had updated furniture and very comfortable beds. We stayed in a 1br suite which was very large compared to a Hilton brand. We had a very nice water view. Breakfast was a small buffet of hot and cold and was decent. The location... More

Room was dirty, beds not comfortable, a lot of humidity. For the price (more than $ 100.00), I expected something much better. I always stay at Reed Roof but was all booked. This hotel is close to UF and Archer Road, but other than that I wouldn't recommend it at least there is no other options available.

Our family was on the tail end of our vacation and driving back to Miami. Driving from Georgia we figured to be in the Gainesville area at night so we looked at local hotels through tripadvisor. We found an online deal thru them and certainly weren't disappointed with paramount plaza. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable.... More

It has taken a while for me to write this review, however now that I have the time I would like to warn all travelers who visit Gainesville to avoid this hotel at all costs! We stayed here August 2014 after having been previous guests twice before. This property is really nothing more than a roadside motel, the exterior and... More

I found this hotel with an online app and they said it was the nicest above 3 star place in Gainesville to stay. All of the other listings were labeled "basic" and this one was listed "solid" a step up according to the site. Good news is the hotel was very nice about allowing me to get a full refund... More

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.
