The price is very good for the service you get, very big rooms, nice breakfast, large swiming pool, the staff is quite good and professional although the make mistakes like everybody does, despite of that I definitely will stay again in this hotel.

We'll be back. Very nice staff. Close to I-75 and a convenient location to the University of Florida. Great free breakfast with waffles, cereal, fresh fruit and other healthy choices. Good proximity to other places in Gainesville. A very good value.

I think we had the nicest rooms in the place, the King w/ sofa bed (rms 201 and 202) so we actually had an indoor entrance after walking up the stairwell. Probably301/302 and 401/402 are the same. All other rooms have exterior doors. Pros: Bed WAS comfortable and Towels were nice and thick. Bedding was like a duvet sheet instead...

Don't let the hotel pictures with the modern look and flat screen TVs fool you, this place is very low quality and much more expensive than what it should be. The bed was full of bread crumbs under the sheet (meaning these were not changed from previous guest) We were changed to a different room. In this one the shower...

Reception was good at checkin and out. If this lq has been renovated we could not find where. Rooms are basic even the one we had with a fridge. Would we stay again? Definitely not. Close to some restaurants but not worth the stay even for a beloved pet. Go somewhere else.

The room was just okay. Not bad but not what I consider good. Though the rooms were clean they had a slight hint of oldness. On a positive note, the beds were very comfortable and the staff very friendly. I didn't like the fact that you have to access the lobby and/or your room from the outside thus being exposed...
