“Great value and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

I have stayed here 2 times and had a good experience. Clean rooms and micro fridge were a plus. Close to Shands is the reason I stayed. If you want the Hilton, pay the Hilton.

I came to Gainesville to take my 8 year old son to his first Gator's game and we were on a budget. I am a business traveler who normaly stays at Hilton or Mariott properties, and I was pleasently surprised by this hotel. The hotel is a little older, but the staff cares for the property and maintains it well. Too cold for a swim, but they had a great pool. For the value, I could not ask for a better experience. The hotel is less that 1/2 a mile from campus and less than a 30 minute walk to the stadium. The room was clean, no bugs, and the service at the hotel was world class. Upon check-in we were invited to inspect the room, were told of free coffee and free doughnuts in the morning. Mike (the manager) was very friendly and even called the room to make sure everything was ok. The property was very quiet and I felt safe at this hotel. There was also a fridge and a microwave in the room. I was able to walk to the game and dinner. I will stay here again.

The quality and cleanliness of the room was average, however, it was very spacious and in a perfect location if you're looking for a cheap hotel near campus. We stayed for a football weekend and walked to the stadium and bars on game day. It only takes ~15-20 minutes to get from the hotel to the stadium, which is not bad at all considering it prevents you from paying high prices for parking and you don't have to deal with bumper to bumper traffic after the game. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind staying in an average hotel.

The hotel is near Shands and within walking distance to the University of Florida. The rooms are dated and spartan in decor yet well kept. The mattress and pillows are very comfortable!

This hotel has been a very good deal to me. Was in town for a talk at UF, they offered good prices, and some flexibility in the choice of the room (king in place of queen bed, if I accepted that they didn't change the sheets, and they actuallly cleand the room anyway).
The position is very convenient with respect to both Gainesville and Jacksonville airports. The front desk staff I met was very helpful. Only a couple really minor things: vending machines offer really small water bottles, and the internet connection is not very fast.

My husband and I stayed at this property for the U.F. vs Kentucky football game. Our son is in the U.F. Band and this was out 3rd trip back to Gainesville to watch the Band perform and the Gator's win! I wish that we had known about this property at the beginning of the school year, we would have stayed here each time. We travel a lot and have stayed in MANY Hotels/Inns and have seen or experienced it all. I had mixed emotions about booking at this Inn at first due to the limited, mixed opinion reviews. Despite the fact that this property is an older property, it is well maintained and clean. The only disruption that we heard was from an inconsiderate guest who bonked their horn in the parking lot and the guests staying next door who seemed to only know how to shut a door by slamming it shut. I have already booked 2 more rooms in November and will continue to recommend this inn to my friends and family who plan to visit Gainesville to root the Gators on! Thank you to the people of Gainesville for being so nice to us out of town guests who come to visit your beautiful city.
