Room was clean, lobby was friendly and inviting. They had snacks and coffee available all day long as well as a free breakfast buffet (limited). Centrally located so it was easy to get in and out - close to shopping and dining.

The room looked well designed, and very well up-kept. The AC was nice, and cold in the room. We didn't use them very much, but the amenities in the room were nice. The only hiccup in the room was the AC cutting off in the middle of the night. We got that back going again rather quickly so it wasn't... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and upgraded the room was. The furnishings were much more modern than expected. The free breakfast was also better than most similar hotels, including snacks available 24x7. I've stayed in many hotels in this area, and I will definitely stay there next time.

Super nice place to stay, I am undergoing treatment at Shands and will be back to Gainesville often! The people who work there always greeted us when we were coming and going, not just the people at the front desk. Also they had food and beverages to help yourself to at anytime in the main lobby.
