Great beds, modern decor and friendly staff all at this hotel. The guy who waited on me at the Bistro was top notch. Hewas willing to make me food that wasn't on the menu and was just great with people. The gym is small but has everything you need for a good workout, a bench, a nice selection of dumbells... More

This hotel is rated as a 3 out of 5 star hotel so I rate it based upon it being a 3 star hotel. I stayed here for a total of 6 days over a two week period so my review is based upon the total experience. I give this hotel a 5 for many reasons. All of the staff... More

We stayed at this hotel while attending a sports game at University of Florida. It was easy to find and close to many restaurants and shops. It was clean and very well sound proofed. The rooms were clean and the double had a small refrigerator, I could never hear the traffic on I 95 or by the plaza. All in... More

The staff was nice. The atmispore was more like a resort then a hotel. It had great egg sandwiches. You could walk to the most of the strip malls from the hotel. There a good book libarrys. My room was more like a Mini suite on curise ship.

Our second stay at this hotel and it couldn't have been better. Updated in August, the room was immaculately clean, the staff super friendly and helpful. Conveniently located to shopping, fast food and interstate, definitely our go to place in Gainesville. The only drawback is the traffic is tough in the area, no fault of the lovely hotel.
