“Best Room in Gainesville!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2008

I have stayed at this hotel multiple times due to appointments at Shands @ UF. Not only is this hotel is very clean & neat, they have adapted the "green" approach. The staff is extremely friendly and always helpful. Due to my health issues, I am unable to eat often, but the breakfast always looks amazing, and they also offer free cookies & coffee all day. The staff has always been generous in giving great suggestions on local eatieries and so forth. The beds are so comfortable, I hardly miss my own, and the air conditioner is temperature controlled which helps with the comfortability of the room. This hotel does fill up quickly on UF ball game weekends, but after staying here, you wouldn't question why.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2008

Hotel is still new. The room,lobby, and breakfast room were nice and clean. Free contindental breakfast included make-them-yourself waffles, a variety of yogurt, cereals, juices, pastries, and fresh coffee. The staff was friendly & hospitable. They even baked fresh cookies for the front desk/lobby area. The beds were plenty comfortable, but the pillows were dreamy. They were exceptionally lofty and perfect to rest your tired head on. Plus, they give you extra. It is right off of Interstate 10 and Archer Road (which is an I-10 exit and a road that goes straight to UF, Shands, and the VA hospital. Also, it is close to almost every kind of restaurant,a Target, a WalMart, a Publix, and tons more. Great price for the area. I got an even better price by calling the front desk of that specific hotel and asking for the cheapest rate. Don't forget your discount membership cards (AAA, AARP, etc). From Pensacola, Florida

  • Liked — Location {and talking elevator :-)}
  • Disliked — Everything was great. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stopped here on our way home from Miami. This is a very nice hotel with a good price. The rooms and beds are nice and the pool was really nice. No issues and I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for one night on a stopover. The property is brand new with large, comfortable rooms and nice amenities. We had a coupon rate of $59, but even at the standard of $79 that was quoted to us this would have been a great value.
Breakfast selection and seating is a bit limited and will probably get crowded once more people discover this place.
