The room was comfortable and was in close proximity to the interstate, local shopping, and plenty of restaurants and bars. We used this location as a stop for the night on our way north and were quite happy.

The breakfast was not the best. Options were limited to microwave breakfast sandwiches, pop tarts, yogurt, fruit, and simple things as that. The employees were very courteous and helpful

Hotel full of Black Mold. Had to leave because I couldn’t breath. Hotel refused to make alternative arrangements. Orbitz doesn’t seem to care about the health of their clients.

Quick overnight while traveling.... would stay here again!

Good convenient location. Room clean. Could use brighter light at table.

Due to no ones fault the popcorn popper stopped performing correctly. I really like getting a bag on the way to my room. I did get a cookie. The toilet in my room leaked, no biggy. I reported it to staff. Always wonderful staff.

The hotel was clean and my bed was awesome. The hotel was having college football activity and everyone in the hotel was invited. This made for a very pleasant atmosphere for everyone.

Great tailgate party, free gameday gifts and snacks also available throughout stay.

Great night’s sleep. Room was spacious and comfortable. Hotel staff was pleasant and professional. Great breakfast and kids loved afternoon snacks of popcorn and cookies. Location was conveniently located next to highway, but close to everything in Gainesville.

Excellent service and everything was very clean!!!

Staff very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was good & many choices. Check in was smooth as well as checkout. Cookies were delicious & appreciated. Room was extremely clean as was the bathroom.

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Great value.

The Room was really nice and we were out in the 3rd Floor since we stayed 4 Nights without asking. The Staff was super Friendly explained everything to us. Breakfast was super excellent variety of Items to choose from. We had a minor dilemma with the showerhead and the Maid took care of it right away to let maintenance know. When we came back things were fixed. The whole staff was very attentive to us. We never stayed in that Hotel but in the Future we will be looking for this Hotel when we Travel.

It was a regular work visit to Gainesville and the hotel was just as expected

Nice place and nice basic breakfast. Close to UF when you are going for orientation or moving in your child

I believe they should install new carpet. Or replace with tile.
