“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Well, it isn't that hidden, but is about a mile off 75, and our GPS did a big circle before leading us to this grand old hotel. It is worth the drive off 75. The rooms were large with comfortable beds and nice view from balcony. The best part was the dining room had delicious food that was reasonably priced, and a happy hour that helped us to wind down after covering many miles on our way south. The buffet breakfast for 2 was $6...so worth the money. I would aim for this spot again. They are is the process of renovating, which will update a lovely old hotel. Only complaint was they need new pillows, which should happen with the update.

My fraternity just completed our 10 year anniversary reunion weekend for my chapter (UF) and the highlight of our reunion was our banquet. I worked with Tracy Ryan over the past year to plan this event and she accomplished EVERYTHING we set out to have. Her expertise in this field was EXCEPTIONAL. We had many changes as time got closer and adjustments were made without hesitation. The food was GREAT and the room setup was immaculate. We held everything in-house and working with Tracy just demonstrated how the rest of the staff would be. Jake was an awesome bartender and Lanell(may have spelled his name wrong) did great at managing our buffet. We even had a last minute issue and Tracy responded with a "No Problem, just let us know". Our brothers and guests alike had nothing but great things to say. You want to be accommodated especially when you're not planning something locally and Tracy made this event ALOT more easier. Thank You Tracy, Paramount & Staff!

Room Tip: A lakeview room is definitely the best route. You can see it from inside the room and on you very ow...

Our room was not ready upon arrival but the front desk gave us free drink cards for the hotel bar and upgraded us to a suite. The staff was very friendly and the overall experience was great. We would definitely return!

Our organization holds monthly luncheons at the Paramount. The location is on the edge of town, but worth the trip. The food is always plentiful and delicious. Additionally, the catering department, and especially Tracy, is always extermely helpful... and flexible, which is a must with our group!

We have used the Plaza for our group functions for the past four years and thanks to Mark McClain we could not have asked for any better service. Mark has always been eager to please with what ever request we may have. Having planned these events for many years I can say that we have never been more pleased at any other motel. We have already planned our next event with Mark and look forward to many more at the Paramount ,Donnie W.

Room Tip: Newly remodeled rooms are really nice , lower floor with pool access are great also
