“Clean and Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed my stay here while taking my son to Preview at UF. A little pricey but the rooms are spacious. The bed was comfortable. The buffet breakfast actually had seasoning and flavor. The gym was small but you can get your cardio in. It is close to shopping plazas and restaurants. I will stay there for all my visits to UF.

Located close to UF, which was our destination. Large 2 bedroom suite with 3 beds (1 king, 2 queens) is awesome for families. Evening reception was excellent - meatballs, sauce, hoagie rolls, salad bar, beer-wine-lemonade! No need to go out for dinner with this offering. Fitness Center is lacking, with no elliptical machine...

Its very simple, just change the name of this Homewood Suites to Conrad and its done. The people make this a 6 Star in my book. Thank you for a great room! 211 and awesome food, service, and staff! Only thing is change breakfast to 10 am.

God Bless!

very nice stay. I was there for a medical app. at the University of Fl. Shands hospital. While we were there my husband enjoyed all the amenities the hotel offered which were many. The staff was excellent. Other guests seemed very happy and enjoying themselves. Most of all the hotel was very clean.

My husband and I love staying at Homewood suites they are so comfortable. Having a separate livingroom area is so relaxing. and Monday thru Thursday you have the added convenience of the evening meal. Definitely a plus.

The hotel is close to the I-75 off exit 384, very close to the Main road Archer Rd as well as many shopping centers and restaurants. Very close to many attractions such as the Florida Museum of Natural History where the famous "Butterfly Attraction" is. Also, 10 minutes away from Downtown and Main street. The front desk staff is very friendly and the facility's supervisor. The suite is typical to the Homewood suites chain in size and furniture. Not as spacious as the Embassy suites.
The worst part again is Housekeeping, no one comes unless you call and when they come they do not do much cleaning, one day we called several times all day and no one came then we got someone to come and delivered clean towels only. Also, we have seen some bugs around and advised the front desk staff and the Assistant manager Charles who was very upset about our bad experience and promised to take care of it, he also compensated us for one night and promised 10,000 points in my HH account. Will watch for that.
Breakfast is a joke, very limited and little.

If you are in the Gainesville, FL area for a day or two, it is OK to stay there but you also have lots of choices in this area. The only reason I choose this hotel is because of smoking and Hilton Honor membership that I belong to for years. The Hilton chain is becoming a smoke-free hotels and they make very hard for smokers to stay at any of their hotels which means I need to find another chain, that allows more smoking rooms if possible.

Room Tip: Away from the pool area.

Every time I visit Gainesville it is almost job related. The first two trips, I did not know about the Homewood Suites by Hilton. Since finding out about this hotel, I only make my reservations there. NO EXCEPTION!!!
