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.

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.
