We stayed one night to attend a concert by Michael Clayter and friends. My cousin's son plays bass guitar in the group. The room was fine, but it does need some sprucing up. I suspect the hotel gets heavy use all year around, so wear and tear is a fact of life. Check in was fast, as was check out.... More

I am a Hilton Honors member so Hilton is always my first choice. First the good. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the front desk to the bartender to housekeeping. The price was excellent, but it was the middle of the summer so that was expected. The location is also great. The problem was the room. It smelled... More

Down there for some personal business at UF for 3 days/4 nights. First hotel was great until it was hit by lightening and power was out for a few hours. With no eta for the fix I was not about to chance it and sleep in a sweltering room so I packed up to leave for this Hilton. While this... More

Great place to stay, neat, very clean, attentive staff. Close to everything. Nice pool area. It's an older hotel and perhaps the rooms are in need of a makeover, but they looked good. Really comfortable beds. fast elevator, for those busy times of day. I can't give any compliments about the complimentary wireless. It sucks. Plan to use your phone's... More

The hotel was quiet and the staff was great. At check in, they were incredibly friendly and cheerful. Later, the bartender, Sean was outstanding. He crafted cocktails and it was nice to have a little break after days of touring colleges with a high schooler. The AC in the room worked great and the additional make up area by the... More

I had a very quick overnight stay in Gainesville, and needed a place to stay. The Hilton fit the bill perfectly. Clean, comfortable beds, quiet, and welcoming check-in. Close enough to the university, though not walkable. Fair price, too. Will definitely try to stay here when I visit Gainesville in the future, though I imagine that it will fill up... More

This was my first time in Gainesville and was happy to step into this beautiful lobby and clean quiet room after a long travel day! Staff is enthusiastic about quality and service. Decor is refined. Will certainly go back.
