Stayed here the night before an early morning doctors appointment at Shand's hospital. Check in was fast and easy. Hotel is older but well maintained. The one thing I noticed was there was no hospitality coffee offered and after the long drive it would have been nice. The bar tender did fix us up with some but charged for it (to make a point I tipped him more than the total bill). In the early morning we headed down for breakfast, only to figure out we had left our coupons in the room. They requested that we provide the coupon or pay for the meal. To me it was very strange in this tech age that the coupon was still a must. All in all nice place to stay while in Gainesville.

Dear CaptainMorgan6,
Thank you for the feedback from your recent stay with us at the Hilton UF Hotel and Conference Center. We do typically offer coffee in the AM in the lobby for our guests till about 10:30. I am sorry about the coupons, we are trying to figure out a way to do it electronically but even so it is hard to overcome paper.
Please let us know next time your travels bring you to Gainesville, until then.

Warm Regards,
Tom MacDonald

One of the major aspects that stood out was the service and friendliness. Every morning at the restaurant, I was greeted with big smiles. Wagih William would go out of his way just to stop and talk with me. I stayed at this hotel for a long period of time and it really made me feel like home. On top of the exceptional staff, the location is convenient for getting around campus. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I stay at this location often. Never a problem..Clean, well run, and GATOR friendly. The breakfast buffet is well done. Good location near U.F. Friendly staff ,with the exception of the once and a while haughty front desk staff. Nice Bar...a bit expensive...$7.40 for 1 Shocktop beer. Easy access to I-75 and insurance world at Nationwide, down the block.

Pretty much perfect except there is no complimentary wifi in the rooms. I had to book my flight and next hotel stay in the business center which is a table in the lobby with 2 computers, so not too much privacy. The hotel lobby is beautiful and all of the staff were very warm and welcoming. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. I would come here again. The only thing stopping from rating it a perfect is the internet situation. I was only staying 1 night and I wasn't going to pay $10 just to use their wifi for a few hours.

Dear Jeff J,
Thank you for the feedback about your stay I am sorry about your issue with the wifi. It should have been communicated to you that it was included with your visit to UF. I will make sure that I am working with the agents to let our guests know. Thank you again for the feedback.
Good luck in the matching process.

Warm Regards,
