Very nice hotel but what was really impressive was the staff. I had car issues and checked out of the hotel. I came back to see if I could work in the breakfast area since breakfast was over. Not only did they let me work there, they checked on me to see if I needed anything, whether I wanted the... More

We spent the night here on our way to Disney. I made the reservation at 8 pm on 9/2/16 and arrived at midnight. By the time we checked in, they were sold out. (Gator home game and a hurricane impacted hotels, I believe.) They had popcorn and cookies in the check-in area, but we didn't get any. Looked yummy though.... More

Clean hotel, convenient to University of Florida, fresh popcorn in lobby, free breakfast.I have stayed here a few times and it is always very clean. Check-in and check-out is quick and easy too. Parking is adequate but gets tight during busy weekends

Checked in last minute I cant remember the front desk persons name but he went out of his way to make sure we had a room and at a reasonable price. The breakfast was great, they have a 24 hour weight room and the housekeeping staff were always helpful.

Check in was quick and easy the customer service agents were nice and polite. I am extremely picky about the cleanliness of the room & bathroom and I must say it was worth the money. The room was clean bathroom was clean. Breakfast was plain but other than that it was very nice. I will be back.

The room is just like a 4 star hotel except it doesn't have a " Heavenly Bed" mattress and no central air cond. Each room has a wall unit for air, but it works good. The only other difference is that there is no Bar or Restaurant on the property, but there were several places a short drive away. The... More

Room and bathroom very clean and both were larger than in most hotels in this price range. Beds were comfortable, I noticed the towels were very nice. The free breakfast and coffee was fresh and tasty. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Spent 3 nights there. Everything was very good but if you are a light sleeper you may have problems. The hotel is next to I-75 and trucks could be heard at night though not very loud. The breakfast served hot food-scrambled/boiled eggs and meat. The hotel was very clean and the room contained a small refrigerator and microwave. The wi-fi... More
