“Good overall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The room was nice, big and clean, with 2 double beds , the mattresses werenn't that good but not that bad either. The hotel is centrally located, near the highway and the main street on Gainesville. It has a nice lobby and a good breakfast was included, we stayed 2 nights while checking the University of Florida. Wifi worked most of the time
.

Room Tip: My room was on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool, nice view and nice location

We are Marriott Rewards members, so always seek out a Marriott hotel when we are looking online. The room was clean, well appointed, comfortable and convenient to hotel amenities (we chose a first floor room).
Comfortable bed, pillows and blankets.
Breakfast buffet was great; we like fresh fruits, whole grains and yogurt, and there were plenty of choices to meet our needs. All other typical hotel breakfast offerings were also provided.
The exercise room was perfect-modern equipment and a great weight rack!
Staff was super.
Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: First floor room was really convenient!

We stay in a lot of Springhill Suites with four kids they are ideal. This hotel is located in a great location right off the interstate. There are plenty of restaurants within just a few miles and right across the street from Publix. It is one of the older Springhills but it still in great shape. We had no issues at all with our stay. I would stay here again when in Gainesville.

As others have indicated, this Springhill Suites is ready for an update but that being said, this is a very good hotel. It is clean, the rooms are spacious and the staff are very accomodating. We just stayed there during a Gainesville event and were very pleased with the accomodations, the breakfast and all staff members we encountered. We are hoping to be able to stay there next year whe we go back for the event in 2014. I look forward to seeing the rooms after they update them.

This was a posiive experience.

Stays at this Marriott overall have been fine. Really just need a place to sleep as my engagements in Gainesville keep me away for the day. The only issue that I have had is with Corey. On the few occasions that I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with him, his service and attitude have been less than ideal, and not what I would expect from a Marriott employee. I have to question why he works in hospitality when he is less than hospitable with his service.

Outside of these interactions, the property has otherwise been great. The outside of the hotel is starting to age, but the inside is kept up rather well. Lobby and rooms are clean and accommodating. Noise can be heard between rooms or from the halls on occasion. Staff, besides the aforementioned person, has been pleasant and friendly. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to and from campus, which is a nice feature.

Even though this SpringHill Suites site may be older than some, it is well maintained. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It was very clean with the exception of the carpet which needs to be shampooed as evidenced by the bottom of our socks. The bed was comfortable but the pillows weren't as comfortable as we've experienced in other Marriott properties. Breakfast was good. I go for the healthy stuff so I appreciated the granola, fruit, and light yogurt. Also, I'm a coffeeholic and enjoyed the coffee and flavored creamer. Wifi is free and efficient. The location of the motel is very convenient. We had requested a quiet room in advance and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. When we return to Gainesville, we will definitely stay at SpringHill Suites.

Room Tip: Always request a quiet room in advance...away from ice machines and elevators.

First the pluses.....
1. Rooms are good size and clean,
2. Lobby was spotless.
3. Breakfast was above average.
4. Location is good for quick access to I75 and restaurants.

Now the downside...
1. The hotel is starting to show it's age. I'm guessing it's about 10 years old now and is due for a re-fresh.
2. The bathroom was very small.
3. I found the mattress to below par for a Marriott branded hotel. Could feel and hear the springs when gettin into bed.
4. Springhill is one of my favorite brands for travel and this one doesn't live up to the lofty standards they generally set. Maybe it's just that it is starting to look a little tired but I also found the staff were not as friendly, fast, or helpful as other Springhill's I have visited.

Overall, This is a pretty good hotel for a business traveler or someone looking for a decent night's sleep at a decent cost.
