“Homewood suites Gainesville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I stayed here for a football game. The accommodations were typical of this type hotel abet over priced since they know they got you and the choices are limited. When I say over prices - double of what non football weekends are, BUT saying that all hotels in the area are doing the same thing.

My FAMILY and I had a very pleasant stay at this location. The STAFF at the hotel was very HELPFUL and provided EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. The ONLY bad experience that we had during our stay, the room temperature was a little warm, because we had problems with the air conditioning unit!!!!

I was traveling with college age nephew, my sister-in-law, and a friend. Although we are all friends it's nice to have some common space but also some personal space, this hotel provides both. Additionally with the full fridge we were able to stock up on snack, beer, wine etc and just have a relaxing time chatting in the living room or watching a movie. The DVD player is high quality easy to use. The breakfast in the morning is fine, although at least three days in a row they ran out of coffee.

Note, there is an oven and stovetop but there no cooking tools in the room or available. I called the front desk to ask about utensils, like a knife, pizza cutter, pots/pans, and I was told that they are not provided with the room. I really don't understand the point of a stove if I don't have any utensils. The nice gal at the front desk did offer to let me borrow a knife from the breakfast kitchen, she is obviously only working with what she has available. I have stayed at other places like this and I've had to request the cooking utensils, as they were not in the room, but that is not the case.

The lobby area is very nice and every day there was plenty of room for the guests eating breakfast. We were on the top floor and had no issues with noise (which was mentioned in a previous review), so maybe if noise is a concern the top floor help.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are quieter.

The Hotel appears nice from the exterior with great amenities, appearance, furnishings, and a comfy bed. However, be prepared to hear everything the goes on in the rooms next to you as the walls are very thin, the halls smell musty, and the floors creek when you walk on them. Shotty/cheap construction on this building. For the price charged to stay in this area, I say shame on you Hilton!!

Top notch staff and easy access to the University of Florida and shopping. I stayed in a suite with a kitchen with a full sized refrigerator which I enjoy because I often stay for four nights. Supper is included and the fare at this location is better than most. Breakfast has the usual selections, but there is a “hostess” who tries to personally accommodate each guest. The pool area is comfortable and clean. The exercise facility has the typical treadmills, elliptical and recumbent bike. Staff here is exceptionally friendly and seem to enjoy their work.

I stayed here by chance after everywhere else was booked up. Very pleasant surprise. The room was very nice and the staff exceeded my customer service expectations. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful. The price was excellent, given it was last minute and I did not have a reservation. I will be staying here again.

Cleaning staf overloaded, got to cleaning the room at 5-6 pm, no towels available during the day, no coffee maker pot, no soap provided in a daily basis, toilet clogged and device to unclog it not available. Understaffed. Very disappointing stay
