Recent guest reviews

Very impressed with room(beautiful). The gentleman in charge of the breakfast area was extremely hospitable and aimed to please.

The room was clean and quiet except for the air conditioner. We had to turn it off to sleep.

Large room, no pictures, seemed like it was missing furniture. Bed was comfortable. Floors need vaccuming. New carpet, smell overwhelming. A little over priced, but quite.

Location good from UF, malls restaurants etc. Room had slight odor and to get air freshers to help with odor

Room was comfortable, but had a musty smell when you walked in the room.

We came for a Florida Football game and it was not bad - it served its purpose for the evening. Location was not far from the stadium and we had good parking. Room was clean!

Good value for a football weekend. Hotel shuttle to/from game worked out great.

Very Nice Place to Stay, recommend staying her when your in town.

Friendly Staff and great cookies! I would stay here anytime. Great location for food and fun!

If you are looking for a simple yet nice room this place fits the bill. The staff was extremely nice ( Tiffany and Rita) and I would go back for that alone!

After a very long week, it was a nice getaway! The weekend was a huge success.

Stayed one night. Good location near all major shopping and not far from the UF and Shands.

Overall, room was clean even though older. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast had a decent selection of both hot and cold foods.

I was traveling for a business meeting. My wife and kids came along. We had a late check in at 11:30 pm. We found the pull out sofa bed broken with the cushions sinking it and a 2x4 board laying under the cushion. The pull out frame was trashed. We requested another room and it was after midnight before we got into a different room with 2 double beds, instead of the king with a pull out that we reserved. We have stated at this hotel before and it has really gone down hill. I won't be staying there again.

Stayed overnight for an event at the UF Arts Center. Front desk was helpful & courteous. I requested (and received) the last room facing 40th Ave - the quiet side away from I-75. Room was fine, good A/C. Shower was good, bed was comfortable. The hallway vending machines in these places are ALWAYS out of bottled water. Breakfast is included in these types of hotels now - a big help if you are on a budget or in a rush.

Was unable to get non-smoking room, but the check in clerk was excellent, she enabled me to receive a good night sleep by spraying my room. Otherwise i would have been miserable.

Great shopping and close to Shand's Medical Center. I will stay there again if I come back to the area.

hotel rooms good size very clean staff very nice and close to destnation

This was a fantastic hotel with great staff greeting us when we arrived! Very convenient just off the interstate and to shopping of any sorts. Close enough to the University of Florida and the football stadium, but out of the way of the traffic of the game. Rooms were spotless and very quiet.

Too close to I-75 on west side rooms, road noise. Had a good breakfast buffet, coffee available all day.
