This is where we've always stayed when coming to town to visit my daughter. Great location to almost everything. Each room has it's own private balcony along with fridge/micro/safe. The hallways usually seem to have a strange odor but that doesn't affect anything in the room itself. Staff very friendly--Emily checked me in and out and couldn't have been nicer.... More

I was traveling through Gainesville, FL in November on business and had booked this hotel for the night. After reading the reviews online I figured that it would be suitable. When I got to the hotel Late in the evening and entered into the lobby there was a pungent smell almost like bad milk. The front desk clerk was very... More

Staff are incredibly nice specifically Emily. Extremely helpful looks like she works very hard and she is just a very friendly comforting woman... Give that girl a raise! Would definitely recommend this place to everyone

Traveled down from the Philly area with some friends for Fest 13. Arrived several hours before check-in and Emily at the front desk was extremely accommodating and made sure our room was ready well ahead of time (about 3 hours ahead of time). The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious and provided everything we needed, but the best... More

old, outdated, paper thin walls, loud a/c. Was a cheap room, balcony was nice but it really needs an up grade. I think they are starting to do that , from what I saw.. I guess for a cheap room you get what you pay for.

I've been staying here for a festival for the past 2 years. Each time has been great. The staff is helpful and friendly, clean rooms, and the shuttle service can't be beat. I would recommend it to anyone, and will continue to stay when I'm in gainesville.

Nice staff both at the front desk and in the restaurant. The bedding was clean but the room and the building in general is old, cracking, and in need of some serious TLC. The room smelled of mildew, the towel rack was pulling out of the wall and fell off each time I reached for a towel. The building could... More

Billy, Travis, and Matthew are awesome. By far some of the most genuine, honest people i've met in my travels. Rarely do I become friends with hotel staff. The restaurant was great as well. Steak and beer was on point. Room service was super cordial and understanding. Lost our car keys and they allowed me to relax while solving the... More

My friends and I traveled from NC for Fest 13 and stayed here. It's a really great place for this event because it's far enough away from everything to get a good night sleep, and the shuttle into downtown made it really easy to get from place to place without having to drive or figure out directions.

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.
