We recently made reservations by telephone to stay here over the weekend for our grand-daughter's 2 graduations. Our mom, here witnessing the third generation of her Gator grad progeny, was with us with a wheelchair and walker.
Our 2 rooms were okay, but we would have appreciated some sort of grab rail or handhold in the bathtub.
Kimberley , the manager, and Linda Bantle at the Front Desk, arranged everything exactly as we had requested, and were particularly gracious and helpful, as was everyone else on staff.
We really appreciated the shuttle service, which helped us get to and from the O'Connell Center for both graduations without having to worry about parking.
