I enjoyed my stay at the Hilton and would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting in the area. I stayed for 6 nights and was treated kindly. I ate breakfast in the restuarant and the staff and food prepared was delicious. I also atteneded a social in the bar and enjoyed the bartenders, they were very good at remembering what I wanted as far as a drink preference.

We go to this hotel several times a year because of it's close proximity to Shand's Hospital. The rooms are very nice and comfortable and the staff is helpful and friendly. Wagih Williams, the Director of food and beverage is super friendly, helpful and has become like family. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. If you go make sure you stop and introduce yourself to Wagih!

I had a great experience here, two years in a row. My only complaint was the spotty Internet service in my room. Several nights I was unable to access and several times the connection was extremely slow. There were many people in the hotel on business, though, so perhaps the system was simply overburdened. Otherwise, hotel was clean and comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful and the location can't be beat. I had business at the university and the entrance is literally a block from the hotel. There are many restaurants and shops in the area (grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) I highly recommend this hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel 1-2 times per year since it originally opened up. I have always appreciated it's convenient location adjacent to UF campus and nearby family and friendly service. As a "road warrior" I was pleased to see the recent updates to the rooms. The rooms are fresh and comfortable.

This property is really close to the University of Florida campus and centrally located in Gainesville. Very close to the Oakes Mall (the major mall in town) and other shopping areas. Staff is super friendly, the pool is a good size, and excellent shuttle service to/from local areas if you arrange in advance.

The only slight issue we had was with getting our room cleaned: we were traveling with two children and in a corner of the hallway. Often by 2pm our room was one of the last ones and still not begun. We called a couple times and even then, didn't seem to speed it up any. Room service was often left outside the door for the better part of the next day before being picked up.

Room Tip: Don't stay in a corner room if you want regular room cleaning.

Nice facility adjacent to the UF campus. Rooms are very nice, and although there are cheaper places to stay in Gainesville, you get what you pay for. The location just outside the campus and just down the road from shopping and dining options make the location ideal. The bar/restaurant is nice enough that if you don't feel like leaving then you really don't need to!
