Hotel rooms haven't been updated recently but it is well maintained, clean and in a great location. Air conditioner worked very well. Bathroom was a decent size. Staff was friendly. Many different places to eat within walking distance. I enjoyed my stay.

We stayed here for a football game and had a great experience. The staff was very pleasant to deal with and took care of all our requests promptly. The complimentary breakfast was very good. The area also has plenty of places to eat and grab a beer.

The elevator would take 5 min to arrive, going down or coming up. So for a quick trip down, I have to add 10 min to my time planned. No microwaves in the room. No free parking around. They try to ask for valet parking.

The hotel was great. The staff was awesome! I will stay there again! If you love the gators this is the place to stay. I enjoyed the restraunts within walking distance. The staff was very in tune with what was going on in the area.

Excellent quality beds and very clean. Great location with plenty to do nearby. Uber rides to campus quickly available and reasonably priced. Parking is challenging since downtown but a garage is available nearby. Valet parking is also available for $14 per day.

Great service. Clean rooms. I love that they offer flavored water in the lobby and breakfast in the mornings. Valet team is great. Very curtious. They have a storage area where they happily kept my bike overnight.

I really enjoy staying at this hotel whenever I'm in Gainesville. It's right downtown close to bars and restaurants. This past trip upon check-in I was told the room wasn't ready. Clerk said she'd call me when it was ready. So we waited on the nice sofa in the lobby. Over the course of an hour we saw people come... More

Centrally located, free breakfast, boutique style hotel. Great in theory but it's a shame the service is bad and if your traveling alone can be scary. During my first stay here I had an issue with my A/C - the man from maintenance came into my room and didn't leave the door propped open which made me feel uncomfortable. He... More

Thank you for connecting with me by phone. I appreciate the opportunity to explain the function of our motion-sensor thermostats. As explained, these sensors do not function as cameras but rather are utilized as an energy-efficient/environmentally friendly control system. We look forward to using your feedback as a training tool for future guest interactions. Safe travels and we’ll see you... More
