Our small group of females had four rooms and each and every room was very clean and there was no problem with bugs. The hotel staff could not be more helpful. The area was very nice and plenty of restaurants nearby including a great Chinese buffet next door. When we checked out, we told the clerk our only complaint was we needed larger coffee cups! They laughed and agreed, saying their repeat guests know to bring their own cups. We will definitely stay here again when in Gainesville.

I have stayed here 2 times and had a good experience. Clean rooms and micro fridge were a plus. Close to Shands is the reason I stayed. If you want the Hilton, pay the Hilton.

I came to Gainesville to take my 8 year old son to his first Gator's game and we were on a budget. I am a business traveler who normaly stays at Hilton or Mariott properties, and I was pleasently surprised by this hotel. The hotel is a little older, but the staff cares for the property and maintains it well. Too cold for a swim, but they had a great pool. For the value, I could not ask for a better experience. The hotel is less that 1/2 a mile from campus and less than a 30 minute walk to the stadium. The room was clean, no bugs, and the service at the hotel was world class. Upon check-in we were invited to inspect the room, were told of free coffee and free doughnuts in the morning. Mike (the manager) was very friendly and even called the room to make sure everything was ok. The property was very quiet and I felt safe at this hotel. There was also a fridge and a microwave in the room. I was able to walk to the game and dinner. I will stay here again.

The quality and cleanliness of the room was average, however, it was very spacious and in a perfect location if you're looking for a cheap hotel near campus. We stayed for a football weekend and walked to the stadium and bars on game day. It only takes ~15-20 minutes to get from the hotel to the stadium, which is not bad at all considering it prevents you from paying high prices for parking and you don't have to deal with bumper to bumper traffic after the game. I would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind staying in an average hotel.

The hotel is near Shands and within walking distance to the University of Florida. The rooms are dated and spartan in decor yet well kept. The mattress and pillows are very comfortable!

This hotel has been a very good deal to me. Was in town for a talk at UF, they offered good prices, and some flexibility in the choice of the room (king in place of queen bed, if I accepted that they didn't change the sheets, and they actuallly cleand the room anyway).
The position is very convenient with respect to both Gainesville and Jacksonville airports. The front desk staff I met was very helpful. Only a couple really minor things: vending machines offer really small water bottles, and the internet connection is not very fast.
