The hotel and staff were nice, and I enjoyed my stay there. The hotel is convenient to downtown, the college, and surrounding areas. And was not that far from the airport. Thanks...

Business trip

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
I staid in this hotel for a short business trip. It is extremely close to UF, which was the main draw. The hotel was fine. The main issue was the fact that the heat/ac unit was extremely load, even when the fan was on low or automatic.

Great to be central

Would recommend Mon, Jan 12, 2015
Hotel was clean and rooms very comfortable. Staff very plesabt and helpful. Only complaint was breakfast. At over a $120 a night I expected a little more than mini packs of cereal and English muffins. It would have been less of an insult if breakfast wasn't included. Location was good for UF and great eating place, Leonardos Bistro directly across the road.

Overpriced for what it is

Would not recommend Sun, Jun 29, 2014
This room would have been great if it was about 80 dollars less. The room and bathroom were small, but clean. The lobby was itty bitty so we skipped the breakfast to avoid a crowd. I think the price reflects it closeness to UF and the student/parents coming in for the Summer semester, which sucked for us because we were there for procedures at Shands facilities. 80 is more what the price should be so if pay more than that you will be disappointed. Also the walls are apparently thin as we got a call from the front desk that other guests were complaining about my four year old nephews laughing at the TV. Something to think about if you are travelling with small kids.

Good location, great staff

Would recommend Tue, Jan 14, 2014
I found that the staff was very warm, friendly, and helpful. I also was able to utilize the shuttle service to and from the airport and to the hospital; I had not realized that the shuttle was available via my review of the website but it was a very helpful feature. It also has a great location near the university and hospitals.
