Due to availability issues I stayed at both Sweetwater Branch Inn and Camellia Rose during a business trip to UFL. I wrote this just prior to check out. Both were very good. I rate both as four star sites because I travel frequently, all over the world and I don't give out five stars easily. Both locations were very similar,... More

Booked the Apartment with full kitchen. Traveled with two children. Much attention was given to detail, cleanliness and comfort of guests. Breakfasts were outstanding. Pat's brownies in the Parlor in the evening are worth returning for! Superb hospitality. Look forward to our next visit!! (Make sure you read the history on this property while staying there)

This is what B&Bs should be like. If only I had figured out that it was necessary to pull the shower knob (instead of turning and turning it) I would have had no problems at all, but that's my fault. Very, very nice.

My wife Kim and I were very pleased with our recent stay at the Camellia Rose Inn B&B. The place was very clean. Everything worked. Everyone that worked there was friendly, pleasant and helpful. We very much enjoyed all the other guests, many of which were returning guests. That will be us next time we are visiting Gainesville (a returning... More

Our room was very comfortable and well-appointed. My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast followed by relaxing time spent rocking on the front porch chairs before our event-filled day. The location was very convenient to downtown and the University of Florida campus. Pat made us feel welcome and we look forward to visiting the Camelia Rose Inn again.

My first time in Gainsesville and the best experience I have ever has with a B&B. Super clean( I am so picky) and a very courteous owner .

I had never been to Gainesville before so I asked my husband if we could stop there on our way up to Hilton Head. He told me that there was no reason to stop there because there was nothing there! But I sensed that if we stayed in a B&B in the historic area instead of some nameless chain Hotel... More

I've only stayed at a B&B one other time - it will now be my FIRST choice when traveling. The Camellia Rose Inn was beautifully appointed and updated (great big bathroom!), the breakfast was delicious (different each day), they had convenient parking, and they are SO close to downtown - maybe a 7 min walk. I went to UF 20... More

We were in Gainesville for a wedding in early September. We enjoy the area's lovely B&B's and had been wanting to try the Camilla Rose Inn. It's beautiful on the outside and we were thrilled to find it was every bit as wonderful on the inside! We stayed in an out building called Spat's Hideaway. We had seen the pictures... More
