This is going to be an amazing hotel. They have started remodels so there are changes. Many many changes in the works and so many good one. My favorite change thus far has been the tree trimming. They cleaned up the trees and the views of the lake are amazing. I'm loving it.

I'm not sure who would ever give this place a four star review but let me assure you that it's very far from a 4 star hotel. This place is completely run down! Let's start with the room. Sure the room is spacious and overlooks the lake but there are stains all over the carpet, there are bugs in the... More

AS I have stated several reviews ago, that we are undergoing renovations. However, I do want to apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced. Yes we are an old hotel and are undergoing renovations, but you should not be placed in a room that was in that condition. If you would of called down to the front desk, I'm sure... More

When we checked in, our first room smelled like moth balls. The smell was so strong that you could taste it. Luckily, a supervisor was in the hallway so we asked her to come in and see if she noticed. She made a call and got the room switched. That was the most pleasant part of our experience. After that,... More

Thank you for choosing the Wyndham Garden Gainesville. When we are filled to capacity it sometimes takes a little longer to get all of the rooms ready for check in.

They are an awesome hotel!!! Very accommodating and helpful to all your needs! Shuttle drivers are pleasant and willing to get you anywhere you need in a timely and safe manner. I highly recommend staying here. Room was spacious and clean outside could use a little cleaning but otherwise a great hotel.

My only complaint is that the place is undergoing renovation so it was noisy and the room itself was incredibly damp and run down. Service and staff were exceptionally. Everyone went out of their way to see that my stay was snagless. Highest regards for shuttle driver Marcel. He was friendly, funny and has a thorough knowledge of Gainseville. Wyndhams'... More

Although you could tell this was an older hotel, it was VERY well kept, nice and clean, with all the amenities. We loved the HUGE pool overlooking a lake...what a wonderful way to watch a sunset! The breakfast buffet was inexpensive and adequate, lots of options for everyone.

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.
