It has taken a while for me to write this review, however now that I have the time I would like to warn all travelers who visit Gainesville to avoid this hotel at all costs! We stayed here August 2014 after having been previous guests twice before. This property is really nothing more than a roadside motel, the exterior and...

The Paramount Plaza Hotel and SUITES has been my home away from home since my son began college at the University of Florida over four years ago! I was here for his graduation this past weekend and was pleased as usual with the hotel! I am appreciative of the shuttle between the hotel and airport , as well as the...

I found this hotel with an online app and they said it was the nicest above 3 star place in Gainesville to stay. All of the other listings were labeled "basic" and this one was listed "solid" a step up according to the site. Good news is the hotel was very nice about allowing me to get a full refund...

Very nice hotel in Gainesville. On 441, convenient location with very nice rooms. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. The grounds have mature trees and most rooms have a balcony that over looks the trees. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony working on my computer while my family watched tv. I will enjoy staying here again in...

Stayed at the Paramount Plaza approx. 5 yrs. ago and was looking forward to my recent re-visit. Had fond memories of a clean, comfortable, moderately priced hostelry. The ensuing years have not been kind. Nothing horrific but fading fast. Both the exterior and interior need serious maintenance. The stucco walls should be pressure washed and painted. The terra cotta roofing...

I was expecting a little more in the way of updates, since I'm sure I saw something in a review somewhere that said it was totally remodeled a couple of years ago. I'd have to question that, but still, it was a good stay for the money spent. Had a late night burger at the bar and it was very...

Finally, they have great leadership! The restaurant was well equipped to handle our large group. Plenty of options and reasonable buffet prices. The staff was friendly and well organized. The pool is the most pristine. Older hotel, but still 5 stars!!

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

Your money has been refunded, we have sent a letter to your bank to refund this money. So know it is up to your bank to release those funds. I do apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

When we were there in early September, we were told there was a game day shuttle on Saturday, but it didn't run very much past the game time, so we opted to park in one of the parking decks. We didn't have any trouble doing that...
