Very friendly and helpful staff!!

The room we booked was not available, The location was good, but the overall condition of the hotel was poor and dirty, not what I expect from that brand.

The stay was great with the exception of our air conditioner not working. And for some odd reason there were dirty cups on the counter as thought the room was used prior to us coming in. Other than that clean hotel and nicely priced.

The front desk clerk was nice and professional the lobby was nice and the outside was fine. I got the orbitz gift, a room in a good front location, But in the room there were live roaches under the kitchen sink by the garbage cans and the pillows are very worn and smelly. Also at some point the bedskirts need to be washed. Stained sheets or pillows or bedskirts really make me want to leave. I didn't bother to notify them because it was just a 1 night stay moving through Florida as I am running from Hurricane Dorian. Housekeeping management should really thoroughly inspect because this can make the entire property look bad when I know it can be better.

We liked everything. Especially the evening wine, beer, and food.

I like the suite rooms, and this hotel is generally a good value for a suite. It is in need of an update, carpets are stained and worn, walls are thin. The great staff makes up for the shortcomings. The breakfast is very good, and on the nights they serve free dinner, it's better than most other hotels with the same offer. Wifi is adequate, I wish the TV had a program guide as newer sets do. I do recommend this hotel, I've stayed many times and would return.

The hotel filled our requirements and the breakfast was adequate. The property is showing it's age.

Our room was nice and clean and very comfortable. The staff were terrific. Breakfast was good and food plentiful. We had a great stay.

Front staff was fantastic! No matter what time it was, they engaged us each & every time we were in the lobby. Like it was home. I asked for extra towels and they didn't skip a beat. They even offered to help me take my food back up to the room when there weren't any trays available. Very sweet! The lady that set up breakfast was very kind. I accidentally poured waffle mix in the cooker not realizing it was out of service. She didn't yell at me OR give me the "look" I felt bad I created more work for her. She kept reassuring me it was no big deal. The entire staff was great!! Our suite was awesome. Bed was comfortable, pillows ok not great. Loved having a full size kitchen in the room. Highly recommend.

Friendly staff and great place. When I arrived late the desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend others to stay here.

I use this stay as my jump off point to be able to go north and south with ease. It's central to all destinations. Hotel was neat and organized, I had a really nice stay!

Great set up. Nice to have the basketball for the kids. Great location. Housekeeping did not clean very well when they came into our room. Overall a great place.

A good place to stay while visiting family. Comfortable and a good location which made it easy to get around Gainesville. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The best hotel breakfast anywhere. Especially like the room windows open for fresh air!

Great. It was clean, the staff was very nice, the breakfast was good. It was close to restaurants and the driving to UF was short. I had no problems during my stay.

Very nice hotel. All rooms are large suites. Centrally located.

One major flaw ruined the entire stay. After booking a non-smoking room, and confirming that we had a non-smoking room at check-in, on opening the door, the room [#415] stunk of stale cigarette smoke. We immediately called reception, who said the hotel was fully booked and they couldn't change the room. Late at night following a 350-mile drive, we decided there was no alternative but to stay. 'Non-Smoking' should mean a whole lot more than just a room without ashtrays; it should mean a whole lot more than no one had smoked in the room recently...the stench was so bad that when packing for departure, even our pyjamas stunk of smoke from laying in bed! Moreover, unpacked clothes in an open suitcase were also permeated with the foul odor of cigarette smoke. Don't the hotel operators realize that when a 'smoking' room becomes 'no smoking', then all the bedding, carpets, drapes etc need to be replaced? How clueless!
