This is a great place to stay if you are visiting FSU. It is just a few blocks from the school and has ample parking. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. It was a bit pricey the night we stayed there were a number of events taking place that week, but the best alternative available.

I stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn last night and was very impressed with the spaciousness of the room (including the kitchen), the staff, and the free breakfast. What an excellent value! Perfect location for anyone visiting FSU.

It is true; our location adjacent to the FSU campus is most convenient for visiting your students. The full kitchen in all our rooms is always an extra benefit for that long missed home cook meal for our students! We were very glad to hear that everything worked out well during your visit and we hope to see you very... More

Free shuttle to/from airport and most places around the hotel. Spacious clean rooms with new fixtures and decor. Decent breakfast buffet and great "pantry" selection in the marketplace. This hotel hits the mark for the business or family traveler. Nothing luxurious or amazing other than consistent good service, clean comfortable surroundings. The Capital isn't really walkable and there's not much... More

It is true we offer complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, as well as the entire FSU campus and also the Capitol Complex! The shuttle service departures the hotel at the top of every hour between 8a and 10p to service drop off and picks at these locations. Upon arrival at the airport we request that you call... More

We stayed at this hotel for the second time this February. Our first visit, a year earlier, was less enjoyable because of the surrounding area (very run down at the time). This time, our visit was excellent because the surrounding area has been completely revitalized. Now this hotel is in the middle of all the action in the hippest part... More

This Residence Inn is in the middle of downtown, a block or so from the Capitol, the state Supreme Court, etc., and a short walk to the newly developed "old town" bar scene. Rooms are typical Residence Inn suites with full kitchens, clean & well equipped. Also has typical free breakfast, including scrambled eggs- not just some warmed over sweet... More

Tom O, Gaines Street Pies is also one of my favorites. In the battle of pizza, I side on the thin crust. In my opinion, Gaines Street Pies has some of the best crust in Tallahassee.

We have been traveling to Tallahassee to visit for a few years now and have been mostly disappointed to the quality of accommodations for the price.

Excellent location when visiting FSU. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Hotels near large universities can sometimes appear overused and unclean. Not the case here. We would defiantly stay again.
