I thought Holiday Inn went through a transformation, but I guess this location did not participate. Everything about this hotel seems old, dated and in need of a renovation. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Limerick, PA a few days earlier and that was great compared to this. When I checked in, I walked quite a long way... More

Stayed here the weekend of June 13-15, 2014. Wanted to be near the downtown activity of Gainesville and this was the perfect location. Convenient walking bridge to access the square and just close to everything in town. The breakfast was sooo much better than your typical Holiday Inn experience! The lounge was nice as was the courtyard. Staff was friendly... More

This was an older Holiday Inn that is well kept, has a great courtyard with access from many first floor rooms. It was kept clean and the staff was very courteous (Especially Holly and Rob in the lounge.) However, if you are planning a long business stay and have to rely on internet service for e-mails and paperwork this is... More

So we attended a wedding and booked here. We got a 2 queen room. Had a fridge but not microwave, that was ok but just an FYI. I agree The shower curtains were really musty and mildews and stunk. The bathtub/shower was really slippery. The rooms were very humid, more humid that outside so I don't know if it was... More

Has stayed at this hotel a few times but this was my last stay here. Stayed for two nights to attend a funeral and nothing was fine. As a Platinum member was upgraded to a room with Jacuzzi.

I am sorry to hear your last stay was not what you had expected. Our Jacuzzi's are built as combined with tub and shower. Holiday Inn has stopped providing shower caps as a standard, so we do not have those on hand. On the bright side, we are currently installing a fiber optic internet system that will increase reliability and... More

I may have made the error when looking at the hotel description, It was rated 3 star but I would give it a 2 or 2 1/2. It is an older Holiday Inn. It was clean and the staff wonderful. Dugan checked us in smoothly and corrected an issue we had with the tv very quickly. We stopped by the... More

My mother and I stayed here while visiting family in Gainesville. The best part of the hotel was the easy check-in, location, and cleanliness. I enjoyed the proximity to the downtown area…it was a great place for a morning walk around the Gainesville square. There are some very cute shops and restaurants there.

Needed a hotel close to doctor's office. Rooms were clean, the hotel was very quiet and staff was fine. Only drawback is that it is older so the toilets are super low and the mattresses need to be replaced. Fine for one night but would not want to stay for longer.
