We waited 4.5 hours to check in. The hotel was woefully understaffed and not equipped to cater for conference delegates. Travelling with two young children, and there was no assistance, explanation or apology for the delay. We were not even offered somewhere to sit while we waited. The rooms were still being cleaned by 9pm and people were still waiting...

This is a nice hotel with clean rooms and nice stuff. I would suggest some renovation. The prices are quite high but we have got the last minute good deal, so overall we were satisfied. Would be if we would pay the whole price. They serve decent breakfast, quite some choice.

Where to begin!!! First this was the most disgusting, dirty and unkept hotel I've ever been in!!! The first room we were given was beyond nasty. From the moment we walked in there was dirt everywhere. The lampshades had some sort of splatter stains. The shower had BLACK mold in the grout and a black ring around the tub. The...

Front Desk Staff were the best! Especially Marcel and John The Hotel is old and rundown but they are remodeling. The property is spread out like a campus so you have to do some searching and walking. For a one night stay for a quick business trip it was satisfactory for the price.

Phone in room did not work. Slowly renovating old property. Good banquet hall food for group.Breakfast bar operation is odd, couldn't take a plate to my spouse in the room. They seem to be jumping over dollars to get to dimes. Nice spot with a water view.

This is and old hotel that should have been renovated more than 5 years ago. Hallways are dirty; Carpet is way past useful life; Bathrooms are moldy; Exterior building doors have security card readers for access, but they were not functional. Building and stairway doors were unlocked. I would rate -5 if possible!

There were so many things wrong that I can't begin to name everything! I hated this place. When I went to check out I heard so many others complain, that I didn't even bother. Let's just say, I travel a lot and I stay in many hotels, this one has a big red X in my books. I've told my...

What a sad excuse for a motel. A 60's motel that is supposedly undergoing a renovation. It's like putting lipstick on a pig. Forget it. Curtains have holes in them, neither the bathroom sink or tub drain, so you end up in the shower with water up to your ankles. One sad chair in the entire large room and only...

As others have mentioned, there is ongoing construction. But aside from a couple of times during our three day stay, we heard no distracting construction noise. We were in a spacious junior suite overlooking the lake - great views of birds and a resident alligator. Bed was very comfortable and we had plenty of lamps in the bedroom and separate...

Good location. Not far from UF But far enough away to bypass in order to get to dining. Lake views from most rooms. Older hotel amongst trees and lake. Small but adequate fitness room.

Bordered by the picturesque Bivens Arm Lake Nature Preserve, the hotel is Gainesville's only lakefront hotel, offering a taste of Florida the way it used to be. The Wyndham Garden Hotel & Conference Center offers full-service Gainesville hotel lodging at surprisingly affordable rates. The Wyndham Garden is ideally located only minutes from Gainesville's most important and popular attractions and venues, such as the University of Florida, the Butterfly Rain forest, Paynes Prairie State Park, the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and Shands Teaching Hospital at The University of Florida.
