“family and graduation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We had a pleasant experience and except for a small hiccup upon arrival we had an uneventval stay. Hotel is situated close to shopping and interstste. Breakfast was plentiful. The room was large and had every thing you could want from a kitchenette to a small but comfortable living room. The parking was more than adequate and convienent.

The hotel is in need of updating, and a good cleaning. The carpets were stained, and need to be replaced. The room was quite clean, better than the lobby, hallways, and food area. The breakfast food was just so so. With this said, the hotel is no worse than the other Hilton properties I have stayed in Florida. They all seem to be suffering from a lack of updating. Most likely due in part to the not so great economy ??

The employees were just super. Very polite, and helpful. Hats off to them.

The hotel sits in a nice quiet area with some beautiful big Oak trees. While our suite was very small and cramped, the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. We were traveling with our dog, and the area outside was very condusive to that. The complimentary breakfast has more than most place have as far as selection of food.

This was my first trip to Gainesville and I wanted to stay close to the University of Florida. Great location and is close to shops. Very friendly staff. Always enjoy the dinner and breakfast offer. Would definitely stay there again.

My first stay at homewood chain and I was not impressed. It wasn't horrible, but the bathroom was not particularly clean - some hair in the corners and a piece of dental floss in the bathtub. Rest if room was ok and the breakfast was basic. I will stay in a residence inn next time - they are better kept on the whole.

The front deck staff are unparalleled. The nicest, most accommodating staff I've ever dealt with in any hotel. The facilities were nice and clean, quiet, and spacious. Loved the affordability and privacy of a 2 BR option, cheaper than getting 2 separate rooms! Perfect for a larger family!

Thank you so much for taking time to write such a great review of our property here on Trip Advisor. Our goal at Homewood Suites, Gainesville is exactly as you described. To provide a level of service that is unparallel to anything you will experience anywhere else, while at the same time providing clean and comfortable accommodations to each and every guest. The Homewood brand is one of the few that offer the two bedroom, two bath suites. If traveling with family this suite type could not be more perfect. Spacious enough for everyone to enjoy while also offering privacy as needed. Again, thank you for the great review. We look forward to accommodating you again should you return to the area!!!
