This is a deceptively large hotel close to the University of Florida in Gainesville Florida. No doubt that location drives a lot of the visitors as it did me. The problem is this hotel is old, overused and under maintained. It has that 1960's beat feeling about it. The rooms are dingy. The beds and pillows are not comfortable. It was marginally clean. The hallways smelled like mold . The staff was doing the best they could given the product. Our phone didn't work. They apparently just went non smoking in January 2013. The hotel has a restaurant , the food was average. There is a pool but again old and stained. Stay here if you need a cheap place to stay near UF and you don't mind dingy.
