Hotel typically $95/night, but $430 on Gator game weekends. That is understandable, but the trick is the 30 day cancellation they sneak in, when typically it is a day or two. I cancelled my room in advance, but got nailed with a $430 cancellation fee. Although the room was re-rented, I received no help when I called. If you are booking for game weekends, book somewhere else as most hotels in Gainesville have much shorter cancel periods. Don't fall for this deceptive and dishonest practice.

Hotel's Favorite
My family and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times because we know it’s a great hotel. My grandparents would stay here during their trips to visit our family (perfect to swing by to Newberry or jump on 75 or 39th to Gainesville). If my grandparents always returned to this hotel, then you know it’s good! We stayed here most recently for my cousins graduation. The pool is awesome, lots of lounging chairs and always clean. We were able to check in early and offered a choice of floors. Front desk is always friendly and breakfast is yummy. Whenever we are back in Gainesville, we will be back as always!

Comfortable beds, small bathroom -- learn to take turns! good enough wifi, free breakfast plentiful and filling. Did not go to pool, did use the workout room -- good one. Restaurant was not good, recommend going off grounds, across the highway to Wahoo's good seafood Hotel could use some cosmetic touchups, not shabby, but showing some age.

The lobby is nice but the rooms are just OK. We went for a game weekend and paid way too much for what we got. The bathroom is small and there was a dirty wash cloth in the shower. All in all it was a place to sleep but I would not recommend, certainly not at the price we paid.

this is an older hotel, but it is well-kept up - the grounds and pool area are lovely. the front desk personnel are extremely helpful and welcoming. the breakfast is a good addition -- and there is a convenient shuttle back and forth the Ben Hill Griffen Stadium during football season. the two-room option is a great choice for those with one partner who likes to sleep early while the other prefers watching tv later.
