Welcoming and friendly staff. Walked in and got a great rate without a reservation. Room was clean and spacious. On site bar and grill was good. Very good all around!! Free breakfast bar looked good but we didn't stay and eat, grabbed a muffin and rolled on. Thank you.

Nice, clean, quiet hotel off 75 near Gainesville. Rooms were large and clean. I had a first floor room off lobby and was very happy. Nice, simple but ample breakfast available every morning. I didn't have a pet but hotel is VERY pet friendly. Seems like lots of people heading south on 75 from up north stop here on way...

Lobby is very clean and welcoming, however, it has a wierd odor. Rooms are updated and the beds and pillows were very comfortable! Friendly staff at check-in. They offer a free breakfast, but was limited. Cereal, oatmeal, make your own waffles, some muffins and toast or you can pay for an omlete. Nice place to stay!

Thank you for your feedback and I am very pleased you had a pleasant stay. I will pass on to our housekeeping manager about the odor in the lobby, we use a neutralizer spray. I hope you will stay out our hotel again when traveling through Florida.

January 2017 - Group of divers from the Long Island area came to Florida to dive the local Springs. The Grand was the perfect base of operations. Right in the heart of Springs area. Everything we needed in a convenient location.

Mike, the gentleman who collected me at the airport, was so kind. He also took me to other places when I realized how "spread out" Gainesville was.He has great stories and a gift to gab. He was the best part of my trip!
