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.

We were on our way to Miami and needed a place to stop, so I used Priceline and randomly got Courtyard. It was awesome! The hotel was very classy and the room was pretty big. All that was well and good but the bed was like heaven. It was so soft and I never wanted to get up. The only... More

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.

My husband and I checked in here three times in one week while visiting with family around north Florida. Each of our three rooms was clean and in good condition. The main reason I chose this hotel over other similar properties was that the rooms have windows that open(!) The hotel rooms have been recently been redone and appeared mostly... More

Convenient location adjacent to I75. Didn't find that there was any traffic noise. Although there are restaurants and fast food locations nearby, I wish they had a full service restaurant. Breakfast offerings are limited and pricey.

The hotel is very convenient to I-75 and nearby are MANY restaurants. The room we had was newly remodeled. Everything was ship shape and new. The lobby has the Bistro which is convenient for paid breakfasts and cocktails in the evening. The people there were helpful and polite.
