A great place to stay with a family. Very friendly staff. Rooms were newly renevated. Easy access to rooms. Breakfast was always stocked. We stayed for a softball tournament. There were 12 families and they accommodated the entire team!

Booked online, one-night stay. Upon check-in (between 5-6pm), my room was hotter than outside and very stuffy.

The ice machine was empty and not even set to make ice... More

We received a flyer for this hotel billing it as the right place to go to when bringing your kids to UF. Not true!! This is a very blue collar place. When we where there it was full of Mexican construction workers. Nothing against hard working people, but my daughter in a pool with them? Not the right place!

The room was clean,comfortable, stylishly decorated and had wood type flooring. The hotel is convenient to the Florida campus (not even ten minutes summer semester) and there are... More

I have stayed here several times while receiving cancer treatment at Shands Hospital. I have always been very pleased. The rooms are up to date, very clean . The price is very reasonable and the location is convenient. The staff have all been very friendly and customer conscience . I would very much recommend.
