The good...very friendly customer service oriented staff, spacious rooms, beautiful grounds, delicious, inexpensive muffins at Starbucks, good overall location in Gainesville.
The bad...the pillows felt like small bags of foam pieces, very lumpy. And they add a $2.50 nightly resort/activity charge. But the only activities tht I could tell are the pool and fitness center, which nearly every hotel has. The activity fee seems a bit pretentious. Just add the the $2.50 into the price of the room if you need it that badly.
With all that said, when it is not a ball game or graduation weekend, the rates are great for the rooms you get. We'll be back for son's wedding. (It is an off weekend.)
