“The beds need to be thrown out!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

The headline is very accurate! The staff was pleasant. The hotel was attractive on the outside and in the lobby. There was water in the hallway carpets from leaks in either the roof or the ac units. I tried to sleep in my bed, but my back was hurting. I went to the lobby and i left my mom sleeping in the room, She can sleep anywhere! The other room was just as bad!

Great place to stay. My favorite spot is the beautiful pool. Cool and relaxing! Everyone at this HIlton makes you feel right at home. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. 2-Bits Lounge serves the best Turkey Burger around and has a wonderful selection of adult beverages. If you are looking for a more formal place to dine, this hotel is the home of Albert's Restaurant. There is always plenty to do around Gainesville from museums, gorgeous natural attractions or visiting the awesome University of Florida Campus. I am sure that your stay at the Hilton University of Florida will be amazing from check-in to check-out.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from elevators.

I spent a week at this hotel. The food it was great, the rooms were great, and the staff was excellent! Great breakfast buffet! Very nice gym facilities as well as pool. It is a very easy ride to downtown Gainesville as well as many other things in the area. I highly recommend this hotel.

Mr. William is the most engaging of all of the hosts that I meet in my travels. He should be promoted immediately because he is the most host like employee you have. Mr. William is tireless in his efforts to maintain superior-exceptional quality of food and beverage service

Business brings me to Gainesville, FL about one per month and the one positive constant is our stay at this location. From the time we check I n to the time we check out, we are always treated in a helpful and friendly manner. The food and be enrage operation is exceptional and one can always depend upon Mr. William to be there, ready to serve our needs. Try it.... You'll like it!

Kindness, friendliness of staff were superlative. Rooms were unbelievable. Staff there generally went out of their way without being asked. Accessibility of entire hotel was a definite five star. I would highly recommend this hotel and plan to return there in the future.

The hotel staff are all very nice and the lobby is beautiful! Comfortable beds too! The hot tub heater wasn't working when we arrived but there could definitely be worse things wrong. The main upset was the lack of mini fridge and microwave, called to ask for one but its a $15 per day extra charge which is ridiculous. We ordered room service only to find they automatically charge a 19% gratuity. I've stayed at 4 star resorts that weren't that high. Overall fair stay though.
