The property is not really a hotel. It has morphed into, in the words of one of the desk employees, "more like apartment living." There was no phone in the room, no hairdryer, and not even a closet door. When I showerede, the tub backed up so badly I was standing in water past my ankles. Most rooms had multiple adults and many also had children. The people in the next room were very loud at 2:00 AM, and then got very loud again at 5:30 AM the next morning. Long ago, this used to be a Hilton. Those days are long gone.

We smelled mold upon entering our room and then noticed water on the floor. We discovered that our bathroom ceiling had fallen down into the bathtub. That was quite surprising and disgusting. The staff did move us promptly to a new room. This room had piles of dirt on the floor, mysterious "mud" spots on the curtains, and the worst was the amount of sugar ants parading throughout the entire room. No one came to clean or collect the garbage which intensified our ant problem. Ants were so bad that they were found in the bed. I cringe thinking i broight our family here - looking for a deal for a Gator GameDay visit. I would not recommend it under any circumstance.

Awful experience here. When we got to our room the key didn’t work and we were stuck in the hall with 3 small kids at 11pm at night. We called the front desk and they said they were sending someone. We waited for 15 minutes so I finally walked back to the lobby to see what was up. When I got there they said “we just sent someone” - I am thinking why did you wait 15 minutes to send someone? Went ahead and got a new key to the room in case it was just the key but that didn’t work. Still no one at 30 minutes and I called the front desk and they said they sent someone 5 minutes ago. I told them we were going to send the kids down the hall to knock on every door and maybe with all of the complaints they’d actually send someone (we wouldn’t really do this) - magically someone showed up 1 minutes later. Room was not clean and the TV didn’t work. Thankfully we just needed to stay for one night and got out of there as fast as we could!

Great Accommodation.

Place is old and smelly

The property was close to Gainesville Raceway. WE were there for the Gatornationals.

My room was comfortable and clean, the staff was very pleasant and the location was perfect.

They advertise the availability of rollway beds and because of this we booked for 3 persons. We ordered rollaway bed with our reservation and received confirmation of our request. On arrival we were told they are not available because of "fire risk" even though we requested one does not mean we are getting one. One person slept on floor.

The bathroom was dirty. Very near the university where I was meeting up for my trip

The lighting in the room was bad. Unable to read a book.

Great hotel super friendly staff! Free breakfast not to far from the stadium.

I had stayed here several times when it was a the paramount ! This place traditionally was a hidden gem! Beautiful view, great staff , great bar, great food, I always made friends hanging out at the bar! I love this place . Check In was decent. The place even though they “remodeled’ a couple years back is falling apart . Elevator feels like. Death trap . Family and I went eat at the restaurant after a cold long day in the rain . It was 8 pm there are like 8 items to choose from in the menu ( no chicken items I want to add ) and the place closed at 8:30! WTH! This use to be my go to spot in a Gainesville, I’ll nevee be back ! So sad! They should have paid me to stay here !
