“Family Reunion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Our family reunion was great, and the comfort, friendliness, and efficiency of the staff made it even better. There were two or three other family reunions in the area whose families stayed at the hotel, but yet the public areas were always clean, and it seemed as if everyone enjoyed themselves.

We stayed at this hotel during a trip to visit relatives. Easy to get to off the interstate, and located near many shops and restaurants. The hotel is well maintained and the kids enjoyed the swimming pool. My nephew forgot his cell phone as kids will do. The front desk staff went the extra mile to locate us after we checked out so the phone could be returned. Would stay here on future visits to the Gainesville area.

After a long day of driving, I just wanted a bed. Sergio was very pleasant and accommodating!!! Freshly baked cookies at midnight was an added bonus. Breakfast the next morning was also wonderful. Thanks for a great stay!!!

The ladies and Gentleman who work the front desk at this hotel are extremely friendly, helpful and efficient! When my stay needed extending they took it upon themselves to ensure that I would secure a room during this heavy travel season. I can only say thank you for the extra effort and care they provided me.

Country Inn & Suites always feel welcoming. Our room on the 6th floor had new carpet and was clean. The exercise room was adequate and the business room has two computers plus a printer. Other than a little noise from I-75 it was fairly quiet our first night. The second night we had noisy neighbors next door. I was baffled as to why they were placed there as it seemed the rest of the floor was fairly vacant. The breakfast was very good and kitchen staff were very pleasant. The front desk attendant and manager were also pleasant and friendly. The free coffee 24/7 is always nice touch. Cracker Barrel is steps away.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room opposite I-75 side,away from elevator with a vacant room next door if possi...

This is a perfect place to stay right off of I-75 in Gainesville. Very clean, polite and the food was excellent. It certainly fit the title of Country Inn & Suites; decoration was beautiful. This is the first time we've ever stayed at a Country Inn & Suites, and will certainly do so again.

We were in Gainsville, because my husband had an appointment with The Movement Center the following day. He has Parkinsons. My husband had a difficult time getting into the front door of the building, and the staff was wonderful. I want to thank Kaiti and Karina for all their help, they made us feel so welcome and they were both so understanding about this horrible disease. The rooms were great, and the breakfast was wonderful. Every time we are scheduled to go to Gainsville, we will be staying at this hotel.
