“We were there for medical treatment at Shands and it was perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2008

We were only there for two days this trip but will have to go back for an extended stay in a few weeks and will definitely book back in the Country Inn & Suites. It is very convenient to Shands, plenty of restaurants in the vicinity, nice business office, room was comfortable and the frig and microwave will be handy for our longer stay. The pool area and exercise room look inviting and the breakfast was great....free USA Today......everything clean and beds very comfortable......bathroom well stocked.......good shower......no complaints.

  • Liked — room, business office, location to Shands
  • Disliked — traffic noise but not awful

Stayed in this hotel overnight while visiting friends in town, and had a better experience than expected. We booked the hotel mainly because it was a Gator football weekend and there weren't many hotels left at a reasonable rate. Turns out, this hotel is actually quite nice. It's very clean and new-appearing on the inside. The room was spacious with a mini fridge and microwave. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel has an indoor pool, business center, and fitness center - none of which I used, but all of which were nice to see. The cookies at the front desk are a nice touch as well. The lobby is styled after a country den/living room, which makes it a nice spot to sit and chat. The hotel is located directly off the interstate between a gas station and a Cracker Barrel, only 5-10 minutes drive from the center of the UF campus.

Stayed November 2008

Nice hotel for the money. We had a suite with 2 full size beds & a sleeper couch. Room was adequate size for the 4 adults (husband & me in one bed, daughter in other & her friend on sleeper couch.) Breakfast was good, typical free continental breakfast with a couple of hot items (biscuits & gravy, make your own pancakes.)

Place was clean, desk people helpful.

I have stayed at this hotel twice (recently!) while on business in Gainesville. I have been very pleased -- I like it better than others uin the area (Holiday Inn Express, Cabot Lodge, Springhill Suites, etc.). The room is spacious and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom includes nice amenities, bright lighting, good towels, etc. The rooms include a small frig and microwave. I found my rooms to be very quiet. The breakfast is similar to most chain hotels -- good selection of breads, cereals, fruit, etc. If you want a bigger "southern style" breakfast, you can walk next door to the Cracker Barrel. This hotel has SUPER quick access to the Interstate becaue it's at an exit. A gas station is next door also and up the street you can find all types of restaurants, grocery stores, fast food, coffee places, etc. The staff has always been friendly and efficient, too. And free wifi.
One interesting thing I like -- there's a speaker for the TV in the bathroom (you can turn it off if you don't want to hear the TV, of course). It's helpful in the morning if you want to listen to the weather, daily news, etc. while getting ready for work!

  • Liked — Comfortable bed, speaker in bathroom, spacious room
  • Disliked — Would love a way to have the central air run all night (like a fan) since I like the "white noise" during the night

We were traveling down to the Keys and this was about half way. It was chosen based on the reviews from this site and they were right on the money. It was a super clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced hotel. Strongly recommend it for either a quick overnight stay or longer term if you are in the Gainesville area.

We're from Gainesville - but had to stay here when the pipes broke in our house. Yikes. Traveling with a 4-year old and 9-month old is usually stressful. But the suite allowed us to put up the play pen in the front room and let our older child sleep in the back. Loved the indoor pool and nice breakfast selection.
Great stay with nice staff in our time of need.
