4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is undergoing major renovations which will greatly improve the facility. Staff was very helpful and price was reasonable. Banquet meals at the convention were excellent. Breakfast buffet left something to be desired.

Formerly the Plaza Paramount but purchased earlier this year as a franchise of the Wyndham chain. First the good, newly remodeled pool area overlooks a large lake with well tended yard, very pleasant. A continental breakfast is included with your stay (can upgrade to hot buffet, with cooked to order eggs for only 3.66 more). Coffee is great and there... More

Hotel was not nice. Room was old and pretty gross. Hallway to our room smelled old and also pretty gross. The door did not close properly which was very disconcerting. The surfaces of the desk, etc in the room were sticky. Did I say gross? The pillows were plentiful; and all were lumpy. We didn't realize that this was a... More

The hotel has very clean and relaxing rooms. Because I must use a cane they have always try to put me in a room that is easy to get to. The staff is very helpful especially Rachel H. in the dining room! She is a very friendly and competent lady! We will definitely return!

Excellent stay as with the past two times. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and restful. Really enjoy breakfast and the accompanying view of lake. Rachel H manages a welcoming and well stocked dining room. Location is close to city and campus life but affords distance suitable for recovery from fun.

The hotel is in great need of an update. The furniture in the halls are stained and torn. The walls are in need of paint. In general the buildings are worn and old looking. Security is hit & miss, some doors you must use your key to get into building & other doors are broken & you just walk right... More

Only stayed one night but had a very pleasant stay. Room was nice, clean, fairly large, very comfy beds, good cold air and private exit to garden area. Could tell buildings have been there for awhile and upkeep on a place that size is very costly but Its still a nice place. Prices were very competitive and hotel restaurant was... More

Had to hit up the breakfast buffet after hearing about it from friends. Food was great and the staff makes you feel welcome :-). Rachel rocks it all morning and keeps the flow smooth. Didn't need to wait long for a seat and drinks were promptly brought over to my son and I.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wyndham Garden Hotel and Conference Center stands out amongst the best accommodations in Gainesville, Florida. 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. The hotel is a short drive North of historic Micanopy and antique shopping, and just a few miles from downtown Gainesville. Each of our 197 large NON-SMOKING, comfortable guest rooms and suites are designed to meet your Gainesville accommodation needs. Our guest rooms are larger than most hotels in the area, which leaves you with plenty of space to create your home away from home. In-room guest amenities include coffee makers, wireless Internet access, hair dryers, irons and ironing boards. Unwind on one of our comfortable pillow-top beds and catch up on your relaxation with remote controlled cable television. The Wyndham Garden offers free shuttle services from 7:30 a.M. To 5:30 p.M. Daily upon scheduling at check-in. ... more   less
