We love this hotel. It's always clean, the hotel is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and it has everything you need. We make an annual trip to Gainesville and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It is located in the heart of everything and is a comfortable, at home feel.

My son had an accident and in the middle of the night we were in Shands pediatric unit. We had not slept in 36 hours and was in need of a shower and rest. I went into a neighboring hotel. (Holiday Inn Express) I explained our situation and the clerk told me he had an available room but it would be $210 a night. We left, drove next door and had a room within minutes for $89. The clerk even made sure we were in a quiet area and made sure our room was good. The rates were scheduled to go up the next night significantly but they honored the original rate and held our room until our son was released. The staff were wonderful, the rooms were spacious and and clean. The bathroom was clean and amenities were excellent along with a free hot breakfast. I want to say , I did not get the name of the first clerk but she was wonderful. A blessing to us and the generosity shown by Dana and Pearl went above and beyond. We are scheduled for return trips and this will be the first place we call. I also have a daughter who plays travel softball when we are in this area it will be my recommendation for our team as well. Once again, Thank you. Brad & Teresa Segree

We stayed here 3 weekends ago to attend a family wedding in Gainesville at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens. The staff was delightful! Always friendly and helpful! Even lent us umbrellas on a rainy day and a wine bottle opener (we had purchased one at a nearby store and they had forgot to put it in our bags) to make our stay even more pleasant. We enjoyed freshly baked cookies in the lobby every afternoon, as well as great buffet breakfasts included in our rates. The breakfasts were far better and an excellent value (loved the waffle machine) than looking for near by restuarants for breakfast. The indoor pool and jaccuzi were clean and well taken care of. The bed had a great mattress, the room was clean and large, Everything was great!

This was our first time at this chain, and we were very pleased. Very comfortable beds, great lighting in the bathroom and the whole room was extra clean. Would stay here again! Very convenient to I75. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on our way home from a long trip. Got there pretty late and the girl there was so nice, accommodating and friendly, especially considering she said she had been on duty for almost 12 hours. Went out of her way to make us feel at home. Room was very clean, bed comfortable and quiet. Would highly recommend this hotel.
