Hotel was clean and efficent. The beds were modrately comfortable. No extra fee for parking. The front desk was friendly and attentive. My only complaint was loud AC. Overall it is a good value that is in walking distance of multiple resteraunts and a Publix.

Prior to arrival, there had been a broken fire sprinkler at the property that subsequently flooded the 2nd floor and first floor. They had dozens of blowers setup to dry the water which were loud enough that you couldn't hear yourself think at the restaurant. We were not able to use the exercise facility as it too had been flooded.... More

We have just completed our second stay here while visiting UF. The hotel is convenient - right off of I-75 and walking distance to several stores and restaurants. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was very clean. The restaurant food was good. 5-10 minute drive to campus. Would stay here again.

Stayed here for one night on our return trip from North Georgia. It was pretty much what you would expect from a Courtyard by Marriott, a clean, comfortable, and convenient motel. Free WiFi was included in our rate. Located just off of I-75 with many nearby choices for dining, fuel, and convenience needs. It has an outdoor pool and hot... More

Just off I-75 at Archer Road (south end of town) this Courtyard by Marriott was close enough to the Gainesville town center and the University of Florida to be convenient for my business, yet remote enough not to draw the "usual loud crowd" that one can find in a university town. I have found that Courtyard by Marriott has always... More

I wouldn't put too much stock in the rating. It's a nice enough place. It's clean, convenient and pleasant. We had a lanai off our bedroom. Downsides is the tendency of Marriott to nickel and dime clients. There are no amenities that you don't actually purchase, not even a cup of coffee in the lounge. There was no continental breakfast.... More

Staff is friendly - great bistro downstairs so you can grab food and take it with you or eat there. The breakfast sandwich I had was tasty. The lobby is renovated, but my room was not. The room was a little dated and an odd layout.

Stayed at this Courtyard a few days ago and was very happy with this property. Everything is around it. Food places drinking establishments malls and anything else you can think of. Very well located. Definitely a place to stay if you are driving either north or south on interstate 75. Off the ramp and a left after MacDonald.
