“Staying for University of Florida graduation”
Reviewed December 17, 2010

The hotel is okay but not as nice as the average Courtyard. The fixtures are a bit dated. The bathrooms are especially sad. Nice kitchenette combined with uncomfortable living room furniture. It's serviceable.

I stayed in Springhill Suites for almost a week. The staff at this hotel is amazing, excellent service from every person I came in contact with. The breakfast is average, waffles, good variety of cereals, breads, eggs sausage, etc, but the people working the breakfast were so helpful and friendly. I heard him talking to someone who had come late to breakfast and he offered to make them new eggs and sausage so they would be fresh. The house keeping staff is also excellent. My room was spotless and they always greeted me in the hall and talked to my 2 y/o, very friendly. The room was quiet, bed comfy, and the clock radio played ocean sounds, or evening frog sounds. I felt like I was on a cruise ship.

We were kept up all night not only by the occupant of the next room, but the room beyond his as well. "Paper thin" doesn't go far enough to describe the walls. Same experience with the air conditioner fan not staying on and agree that at least that might have drowned out some of the noise. You could literally hear every word - not just a muffled sound - coming from the next room. Other complaints but they were probably only annoying due to lack of sleep. Complained the next day and was told they would credit us reward points - have yet to see. The room was nice, the staff was very friendly...but we go to a hotel to sleep and, unfortunately, that didn't happen at this one - sleep quality, I would have bubbled zero!

The good location and pleasant staff cannot make up for the horrible construction with paper thin walls and floors. Every closing of a door sounded like thunder and every word of the guests in the adjacent rooms could be heard even though they appeared to be talking in a normal tone. Our airconditioning fan was unable to stay on so it could not drown out the sounds. This made sleep almost impossible for my family and I.

Overall, I liked my stay here. You really can't beat the amenities of parking, breakfast buffet, kitchenette, and wireless internet in the room to go along with the price of the rooms. I had no problems with connecting to the internet, the breakfast was standard but fine, there was plenty of parking. The kitchenette in my room was not quite in order, clearly housekeeping had forgotten to check in there, as I found a carton of smelly leftovers and an unopened can of soda. The smell was confined to the fridge, so I just threw it in a hall trash can and didn't bother to let the desk know. Although maybe I should have. Overall, housekeeping services seemed a little slow. I was out of my room 9am-noon and when I came back, housekeeping hadn't been in. Not a big deal, it was still on the earlier side. But when I left and went back to my room again at 3:30pm, they still hadn't been in! I thought that seemed a little on the late side. It's not a huge deal, except that I did throw away food, etc. of my own that I wanted emptied. Another cleanliness complaint is that I did spot a couple tiny flying bugs (literally, smaller than fruit flies, could probably find them anywhere) in the room. My last complaint was about the pool. I went to the pool for a couple hours here and there throughout my stay, and not once did the filter come on. It's outdoors, so I expected bugs and whatnot to be floating around, and there were... but a filter being on might help minimize them at least?

To be honest, the couple of issues I had weren't a big deal to me, but might bother others. I'd stay again... the location has tons of stores and restaurants nearby (Target across the street!) which was all I really needed. It's about a 5 minute drive from the UF campus, and avoids the usual "campus crowds" of a hotels that are closer to the school. It was quiet and I wasn't bothered by any excessive noise (other than the very loud air conditioner, but it worked and that's all that matters to me!). Also, the beds were a little stiff for my liking, but I slept ok in them.

Very clean with a friendly staff. Springhill usually doesn't disappoint and this was no exception.Stayed with 3 kids and there was plenty of room with 2 queens and a pull out. Would definitely stay again.
