I would not suggest anyone stay here. I was charged $470 for a one night stay with 10k points. The hotel is under renovation which is a good thing but not when they are waking you up first thing in the morning doing work in the room next door. Also being a gold member I was upgraded to a king... More

Great location. Very quiet. Some construction but did not bother me. I had some minor issues with the hotel room but as soon as I brought them to the attention of the staff they were immediately resolved, The staff was very gracious and accommodating. Great place to stay ,

Perfect for what we used it for... A place to close our eyes after staying at the casino until the wee hours of the morning. Close to winstar at a third of the cost. The beds were comfy, room was clean. Staff was nice. I did find it strange that they wouldn't accommodate our request for one bed although the... More

First off, I like Holiday Inn Express for the beds, showers and breakfast. In those regards, like everywhere else I've stayed - the same. Other than that, there was a massive amount of construction going on at the time, so I didn't wander too far from my room and the breakfast bar. I think this place has the customers pay... More

While the rooms needed updating you can't beat the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They treated you like family. I stayed there while in town for a wedding. They were wonderful to all of us and offered suggestions for visiting attractions and places to eat. Took great care of us. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to... More

As the heading says we think one night stay is ok, but not more than that. We are satisfied and not complaining but we would choose a different hotel next time. All in all a good night sleep. Nice and clean with friendly staff.

We visited Winstar Casino to see Robin Thicke in concert. We stayed at Holiday Inn in Gainesville. The hotel was way nicer than I would have expected from a Holiday Inn. The suite was extremely roomy. Beds and pillows super comfy. We were impressed with how posh it was since it was not in a resort setting. Would definitely recommend... More

Room was small. Curtains wouldn't shut and construction workers kept standing outside the window. The mattress was old and hard, not the comfy pillow top, my back is killing me. They didn't change the time on their clocks so we missed breakfast. I told the desk lady and she said she called on it a couple of days ago. Wish... More

Kalee Lancaster did a spectacular job of treating us with respect. She was more than willing to accommodate us anyway she could. She went above and beyond to ensure the best vacation lodging possible. She also helped book a reservation for the next place we were headed. This saved us time.
