This hotel is very clean and the front desk staff was super helpful. Location is definitley key, espesically if you're going to Gainesville to catch a football game. No driving necessary, within walking distance of anything!!!

I would highly recommend the UF hotel for an event on campus. Location, parking and the feel of safety and part of the University is well worth the money.

I have just spent a week at this hotel and I have no hesitation in recommending it. My fifth floor room was large, clean and tidy and had everything that I needed or would expect from a hotel of this type. The bed was comfortable and the linen and towels etc were changed whenever needed. The staff were friendly and after a recent nightmare at the Hilton conference centre in Gainesville it was a delight to find a hotel which provided exactly what it said it would. There are many food outlets near by and the hotel in ideally placed for anyone having business at the university. No frills, no hassle, no problem, Thank you.

The location of this hotel is unbeatable, obviously for those who have something to do at the University. We booked the Executive Suite, which was on the sixth floor with a balcony overlooking the college and it was HUGE! It had a living room with a tv, desk, a pullout sofa, and several comfortable chairs. Then, in the hallway connecting the living room and bedroom was a little wetbar area with a refrigerator, which was quite large for a hotel, and plenty of cabinet space (not sure what for). The bedroom itself was also huge and had two comfortable queen size beds, a desk, a tv, and another chair. The room was extremely clean and large, but the breakfast left much to be desired. They had juice, donuts, coffee, milk, cereal, and english muffins, but that was it. I expected a bit more for $124, which i guess was a decent rate, just a bit high, considering the accommodations. Also, they are currently redoing the fourth floor and we could hear the noise and drilling and banging loud and clear on the sixth floor at 8:30 am, which was very annoying, considering we were not informed until we walked into the room and saw the note taped to the desk, talking about the renovations. The least they could do is tell you when you check in or decide to make the reservation. Overall, we had a great stay and are likely to return.

I read the review on this site about how terrible the service was, so I was prepared to be unhappy. What a nice surprise! The people at the desk were extremely friendly and helpful, they allowed me to have a late check out, printed my boarding pass, etc. Nice, comfortable room that was VERY quiet and clean. The location is perfect for anyone doing work/business at UF. Even a (limited, but free) breakfast bar with coffee, muffins, cereal, juice, etc.
For the price, you can't go wrong.

The nice and friendly chinese lady at the front desk was very helpful. Then we got to our room and it was disgusting pubic hairs on comforter and the room apparently was cleaned poorly. We called the front desk and the manager was to say the least, needing lessons in social etiquette. The manager said not to worry there is no charge to change us to another room. Which to say still had problems but who would want to call that "friendly" (sarcasm intended) manager again. Her attitude was as if we were bothering her and a nuisance for even calling to inform her about the poor job of housekeeping. Come and say hi to the nice front desk people, but stay away from this place otherwise. Its sad when a hotel has an overpaid and underworked manager bring her bad attitude to work with her and ruin peoples experience. Xie xie ni to the front desk lady she was most helpful.
