I don't stay at Marriott's too often, but this one had a very friendly and engaging staff and a very good layout for getting work done in the lobby restaurant area. The morning offerings from the onsite Starbucks was definitely above average including hot meals. The rooms were more than adequate and our understanding was that they were beginning a... More

The hotel is right off of highway 75 and is surrounded with easy access to both restaurants and shopping. Our room was on the second floor in the front of the building. Based on other reviews had requested room on quiet side of the hotel which is the back side, but was told on check in that none were available.... More

We travel 3 weeks per month and Courtyard is consistently becoming our preferred brand. I am always happy with my stay and do not review often. Manager Adam and his staff deserve recognition for their efforts. Every team member spoke and made direct eye contact, with polite conversation and a smile. No unheard of, but noticeably consistent. Rooms and lobby... More

There are numerous comparable options in the same immediate area. This Marriott property is dated and the noise from the highway considerable. If highway traffic noise bothers you, select a hotel away from I75. Moved after the first night to Residence Inn down the street. Same highway noise but nicer room, breakfast included and $40 cheaper per night.

The exterior of this place was very nice. The inside was decorated contemporary. The place was very clean. The employees were very nice and accommodating to are needs. I would defiantly stay there again. It is in a very nice location. It is close to the university of Florida .

Stayed here on a trip for a family gathering. As always clean and comfortable, consistency that I have come to find at Marriott. Love the breakfast and also the ability to get food in the evening even though there are plenty places nearby - it is easier to just be able to go downstairs.

Great location right off interstate 75. Nice clean rooms. Friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay here at this location. Nice breakfast also offered. There is adequate parking for cars but not if you're pulling a camper trailer. The check in the process and all amenities were appropriate.

If you are looking for a good hotel in Gainesville (that is right off 75) then the courtyard will suit you well. The hotel is in a nice location, with many different restaurants to choose from nearby. The hotel itself was nice, and the rooms were comfortable. If you are just passing by Gainesville and need a place to stay,... More
