“Superior accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We chose this hotel after a very poor experience at a neighboring competitor. This hotel was in all ways comfortable, convenient and accommodating. I will stay here again the next time I'm in Gainesville.

I am currently a Hilton Diamond member and stay in Hilton ( preferably Garden Inn) approximately 48 weeks a year, AND 5 IR 6 TIMES at this specific property since 2011. With that said, the employees at this hotel are the WORST I have come across! THIS WILL BE MY LAST STAY AT THIS PROPERTY and may alter ny business travel / stay decisions going forward. THIS STAFF CERTAINLY MAKES MARRIOT SOUND A LOT BETTER!!!BETTER

I recently stayed here for several weeks with my Mom as my Dad was having surgery nearby at Shands. It's a quick drive to and from the hospital, with all the restaurants and shopping in between so we never had to go far. The front desk staff, particularly Jamal and Jessica went out of their way on more than a few occasions to make us feel welcome and ask if we needed anything. The breakfast was fabulous, and the guy who makes omletes knows how to make one! The only concern was that twice they skipped cleaning our room, and once it was partially clean; the coffee pot had not been cleaned out and there wasn't a clean glass in the room. After a call to front desk this situation was rectified. The room was clean and comfortable and the hot tub was nice after a long day at the hospital!

We usually stay here when we travel. The room was very clean. The girl at the front desk, Jessica, was wonderful. She helped us find a really nice Cuban restaurant that was not high priced but the food was delicious. Our room was on the first floor, as per our request.

The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. We were awake until after 1:00 because of the noise in other rooms and the hall but there was a baseball team staying there. Be sure and ask about such goings on before you reserve a room. You can order breakfast but there's no buffet. Not a bad thing just being informative. We were in too much of a hurry so we didn't eat here. The hotel is handy to I-75 and has some beautiful moss-laden oaks near the property. And I hope Georgia lost. Y'all should go to bed earlier.

I stayed here for one quick night, got in late and left very early. Hilton Garden's are very nice hotels, and I found this one to be "one step above" some of the other's that i've stayed at before. Just a few nice small touches (such as a plant in the room) made it even nicer. Did not have a chance to use the pool, but I could see it from my room and it looked wonderful, much nicer than some of other Hilton Garden locations. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, very welcoming. I'd not hesitate to return, as a matter of fact, i'll look forward to it!

We stopped here for a night en route down the coast and it worked out fine. The hotel is not far from I-75, but it is tucked away behind other properties, so a GPS is helpful in locating it. There are a lot of commercial businesses nearby including Target, Wal-Mart, Publix, a cinema, gas stations and several restaurants. It was about a four mile drive to the U of F campus and the Swamp. The room included a flat screen TV with several channels in high definition. In seeing other reviews, it appears the TVs have recently been upgraded. There were ample power outlets available throughout and the free Wi Fi was easy to connect to (requiring the now standard last name and room number to access). There’s a fairly large outdoor pool. Cooked to order breakfast was available for a fee in the morning although as an Honors Gold member, there was no charge for the meals. The front desk staff were friendly and offered recommendations for nearby restaurants, even calling one to make sure there was a minimal wait on a busy Friday evening. During our Spring Break stay we saw license plates from several states, so it was apparent that others were using the property as a stopover on a longer trip. Given the price paid, it was a good value.
