5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This is first time I ever went to the paramount plaza. Overall I was very satisfied by the clean rooms and the price. I especially liked the food they provided. The chef named Daniel there is amazing!

This facility has even been a Hilton, and the rooms are enormous, the pool is delicious, and overlooks a classic Florida lake with moss-covered trees at the edge. A good exercise room, and a patio for every room. I've visited Gainesville many times, and always try to stay there. When there's not a convention, rates are very reasonable. Big thanks to Matthew for help checking out after getting in very late. I've never encountered such a friendly staff

We have stayed here twice when we need to visit Shands. We stayed one other place in Gainesville. The Paramount is the best and great location to hospital. Staff are friendly and provide to notch service.

I found this on-line and we spent a night there, while in Gainseville, We had to stay in Gainseville the next weekend and stayed again.
Both times we had an easy check-in, friendly staff, clean lobby and very clean room.
I know when I go back through we will stay there.
Also, it is family owned and we try to help local people.

This was my 1st time in Gainesville and staying at the Paramount made it even better. I had a deluxe double Lakeview and the pool was right outside my room door. All of the staff were friendly. I loved that you had to use your room key to enter the buildings. It made me feel safe and secure. I highly recommend this hotel and I will most definitely stay here again.

Don't let the bland exterior fool you. The hallways have not been updated and are a bit dark and "industrial" but the rooms have. They are roomy, clean, modern and have a view of the lake. Ours had a view of some old live oaks and if you leaned over, you could see the lake. All rooms have a sliding glass door opening onto a private porch. Beware of mosquitoes; it is Florida, after all. Front desk staff was professional and attentive. If we were passing through Gainesville, we'd definitely stay here again. Hotel is a short drive to the center of town. Only negative was that the restaurant was nothing to write home about. Saying it has a "lake view" is generous. We had drinks there and then ate in the downtown area.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking or close to the lake.
