My family and I stayed at Homewood Suites in Gainesville for 11 days. From the day we checked in until we left, everyone at this property went out of their way to be helpful and make our stay as pleasant as possible. My husband underwent a kidney transplant at Shands at the University of Florida and we didn't know how long we would have to stay in the area after the surgery. The front desk stated it was no problem, just let them know when we knew more. They even gave us a special hospital rate! The room was fabulous and after the surgery, they offered to upgrade us to a 2 room suite if we would like!!! It was wonderful and allowed our family to stay with us and help us out since I too had surgery and donated the kidney to him. The rooms were beautiful, very spacious, extremely clean, and housekeeping was there immediately if needed. I cannot say enough good things about this property. Apparently their management is top of the line. We will definitely stay here again on our follow-up appointments!!!

Spent night in July 2008.

Positives
- Close to I-95
- Many places to eat nearby
- Excellent staff
- Biggish and clean rooms
- Good value for a suite
- Free breakfast was one of the best I had ever seen in selection and quality

Negatives
- Upper floors are wood frame construction, rather than concrete. Therefore when someone walks around in the room above, their floor, your ceiling, creeks. What bozo decided to build a Hilton hotel in this manner deserves to be jailed in the darn place for a year with a dance-dance revolution contest above them. We must have had a family of 5, all insomniacs, all badgers, above us.

Among the best Hilton rooms I've stayed in. Clean. Convenient location. Would definitely be back. Just wished breakfast lasted an hour longer until 10:00 AM.

Our softball team was playing a tournament in Gainesville, and having stayed in a HS for the tournament in Altamonte Springs last year, I contacted the Gainesville hotel for a rate. Not only did we get a great group rate, but our 5 day stay (with 12 families) was exceptional. From the management to housekeeping to the woman who took care of the breakfast area, everyone was friendly, helpful and courteous. We couldn't have asked for anything more. One manager - Ron - went so far as to make up word searches and unscrambles for the girls using their names and softball terms. Awesome!

The rooms were clean, spacious and modern. The pool area was beautiful, and the pool water was crystal clear and cool - no easy feat in the July heat. Free breakfast is such a luxury when you have children, and the welcome home drinks and supper (Mon - Thurs) was wonderful.

Thank you to the staff of Homewood Suites Gainesville for making our stay so carefree and memorable.

My wife and I both have allergies, so we always have to check out hotel rooms before committing. The room we stayed in here was clean and had no bad odors. Also, the windows open and there is not a lot of noise outside. Our room overlooked the parking lot that is shared with the Hilton Garden Hotel. (We tried there first, but there windows don't open.) The suite included a kitchen with full size refrigerator. This is an excellent property, highly recommended.

We needed a clean, well located hotel in Gainesville, in order to attend a two day conference. I read the reviews on Trip Advisor and settled on Homewood Suites, even though it was a few dollars more than others in the area. It was a good decision.
The hotel is very well located and easy to find, just off I-75, and is nearby to lots of shopping and restaurants. We had a gift certificate to Outback and/or Bonefish Grill, and both were within minutes of the hotel.
The front desk staff was extremely friendly, polite and courteous, both at check in and check out. The unit was immaculate, fully equipped and ready for our arrival. Since it was a Friday, they did not offer the complimentary beverages in the evening, but we did enjoy a fine breakfast including fresh made waffles, country fried pork chops, scrambled eggs, and lots more.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone needing a short or long term stay in the Gainesville area. There was complimentary high speed internet access n every suite, plus a complimentary business center with access for those without their own computers. Top notch!

CLEAN & FRIENDLY!! WHAT A GREAT HOTEL!!! After several disappointing stays at other hotels this year, we finally found a Clean & comfortable hotel and unbelievable how friendly all the staff was. From the pre-trip calls to inquire about the rooms, the questions were answered friendly and accurately. The front desk was polite and courteous, the cleaning staff was extremely friendly and accomadated us with extra towels when requested. The complimentary buffet was great, very clean and well stocked. The pool & hot tub were well maintained. I needed to use the business center to send an urgent fax, and at the time both stations were being used. The management went beyond any normal duty and let me use their equipment to send the fax from my laptop. They even loaded the printer driver to my laptop to assist.

My wife and I feel this is the best hotel that we ever stayed in, and since we have to return to Gainesville several times in the next two years for Medical reasons, this Homewood Suite is definately our choice from now on. CLEAN, COURTEOUS & FRIENDLY WITH ALL THE AMENTITIES OF HOME.

My wonderful wife cannot think of one complaint for this hotel. That is truly an amazing feat. Thank you Homewood Suites.
