“A Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Just as advertised this property is clean and the staff is friendly and inviting. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Gainesville, FL area. Upon arrival late at night I was warmly greeted and everything was in place for a quick check in. The breakfast was well supervised and neat even though the hotel was full there was ample food.

A great hotel near to University. It is an excellent place if you are travelling to UFL for business. I was in this hotel for 3 days. I enjoyed the stay here. I highly recommend this place for students and parents.

This place was a real find. The front reception staff(Britni) was simply amazing. She went out of her way to give us exactly what we wanted. The place is exceptionally clean and you can tell the cleaning staff are proud of their work. Would stay here again, no problem. Just having a spot to go to , to check out hotels is so helpful..I always use TripAdviser and they have never disappointed, thanks to everyone who writes reviews,you have no idea how helpful they are.

We love this hotel. It's always clean, the hotel is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and it has everything you need. We make an annual trip to Gainesville and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is located in the heart of everything and is a comfortable, at home feel.

My son had an accident and in the middle of the night we were in Shands pediatric unit. We had not slept in 36 hours and was in need of a shower and rest. I went into a neighboring hotel. (Holiday Inn Express) I explained our situation and the clerk told me he had an available room but it would be $210 a night. We left, drove next door and had a room within minutes for $89. The clerk even made sure we were in a quiet area and made sure our room was good. The rates were scheduled to go up the next night significantly but they honored the original rate and held our room until our son was released. The staff were wonderful, the rooms were spacious and and clean. The bathroom was clean and amenities were excellent along with a free hot breakfast. I want to say , I did not get the name of the first clerk but she was wonderful. A blessing to us and the generosity shown by Dana and Pearl went above and beyond. We are scheduled for return trips and this will be the first place we call. I also have a daughter who plays travel softball when we are in this area it will be my recommendation for our team as well. Once again, Thank you. Brad & Teresa Segree

We stayed here 3 weekends ago to attend a family wedding in Gainesville at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. The staff was delightful! Always friendly and helpful! Even lent us umbrellas on a rainy day and a wine bottle opener (we had purchased one at a nearby store and they had forgot to put it in our bags) to make our stay even more pleasant. We enjoyed freshly baked cookies in the lobby every afternoon, as well as great buffet breakfasts included in our rates. The breakfasts were far better and an excellent value (loved the waffle machine) than looking for near by restuarants for breakfast. The indoor pool and jaccuzi were clean and well taken care of. The bed had a great mattress, the room was clean and large, Everything was great!

This was our first time at this chain, and we were very pleased. Very comfortable beds, great lighting in the bathroom and the whole room was extra clean. Would stay here again! Very convenient to I75. The staff were friendly and helpful.
