Very nice place to stay while in Gainesville. Room was very clean and comfortable. Beds were also very comfortable. I wasn't too impressed with the breakfast. Same things everyday, Didn't care for their peppered eggs, they were very dry out. Staff was very friendly and took care of problems right away. I would stay there again when in Gainesville.

On our way to southern Florida we spent a night here. The hotel was very clean and is located conveniently to the main hi way. The people working the desk were very friendly and check in was quick. Our room was large and again it was very clean. The beds were comfortable which led to a good nights rest. We...

We stopped here for a night on the way home from a beach trip. Check-in prob took 3 minutes tops, and our room was spacious, modern and clean. The bathroom was larger than I'm used to for a hotel in this price range with large granite countertops. The room had everything we needed as well as extras like higher-end bedding...
