Recent guest reviews

I was a little disappointed with the room for the pricing.

It was very nice, clean, and the staff was friendly...

This hotel pretty much delivers what you'd expect. Clean room, friendly staff, meets basic overnight needs. Because it was "move in" weekend for UF in Gainesville, we overpaid -- i.e. it wasn't a great value. However, it met our needs.

The best feature is it's location, just off 75 and near everything. Clean, Very Friendly, too expensive finger foods to eat. Good to refresh and sleep.

We were in Gainesville for a U of F graduation. The location and facility were great! Love the Starbucks bar for morning coffee and breakfast, lunch also available.

Except for location & a very comfortable bed, hotel was mediocre. Really surprised that room did not come with a minifrig which is practically a given at decent hotels. Rooms are also dated and certainly not very sound proof.

We spent the weekend attending a UF athletic tournament in which our daughter was participating. The hotel was clean and comfortable. We had breakfast in the Bistro restaurant which was good but not included in the room rate. Some other similarly-priced hotels in Gainesville offer free breakfast.
