I am not the type that typically takes the time to write reviews on anything but Tracy Ryan took the time to provide the best customer service I have ever seen. I was in town for business and she made the entire stay absolutely amazing. My husband and I couldn't stop talking about the hotel in general, but being a... More

We really enjoyed our stay in your hotel, but the most amazing customer service we've ever had came from Tracy Ryan. I asked for her name specifically so I could tell management before we left but my husband was called away abruptly. Tracy made our entire stay special & we really appreciate her. We've been ALL over the world and... More

I booked this hotel for a conference, so in that respect I did not have much choice. The grounds are nice and being on a lake makes for a nice view from the pool and some of the rooms facing it. The rooms were very roomy but dated and the furniture was old. The pillows are uncomfortable, but the bedding... More

I have stayed in a number of hotels traveling for business and found my stay at the Paramount to be both comfortable and clean.

Our room was of a comfortable size, but the facility needs some updating and maintenance. The hallway carpets need to be DEEP cleaned, our shower did not drain, the pillows were horrible, and the meal we had in the restaurant was really bad.

For the money, a great place to stay for a night or two. The pool is fabulous, with the huge oak trees and dreamy moss swaying to the lake wind. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was good enough for $65! Clean and comfortable. The halls of the hotel and the elevator are a bit dingy and... More

My family and I traveled to Gainesville for a serious operation on my grandfather. Suffice to say hotels were a big deal, and this one was perfect.
