“Holiday stop over”
Reviewed 27 December 2007

My husband and I stayed here for one night to visit friends before continuing on to our final destination. Check in was speedy, the staff was friendly and suggested a great bar/restaurant for dinner. The room was clean and roomy. We had a king room, non smoking, on the fourth floor. This hotel is conveniently located near restaurants, shops, and I-75.

This is a very nice Holiday Inn Express. The Customer Service levels are VERY high. Check in was quick, and very proffesional and friendly. I got a gift (candy) for being a Priority Club member, and the room was clean and comfortable. The rooms are quite small. Also the hotel is currently remodeling, so there was alot of work being done. The bathtub in my room was obviously brand new since it still had the stickers on it. The breakfast was very good, and I have never seen such a friendly breakfast hostess. She sincerely greeted you and kept the breakfast area very clean and well stocked.

I would highly reccomend this hotel, and was very impressed with the staff.

Room was very clean. If you have a pet and don't smoke, you won't like it cause all the dog friendly rooms are smoking. But, we stayed here on the way to Key West and on the way back home. Walked over to Cracker Barrell for dinner, sat by the pool, with my puppy. It was just a one night stay, both times, but very pleasant.

A very clean, updated, comfortable room. We stayed in a suite, which was big even by suite standards. It did not have a bathtub, but rather a large walk-in shower. The bathroom itself was bigger than many hotel rooms. It is a short drive to restaurants, and is right off of the freeway. There is an outdoor pool, and a small fitness center. A late check-out was easy to get.
I used Priority Club points to get the room, and noticed that a standard room and the suite were the same price. This caused my wife and I to extend our stay there. The staff was very friendly, although there is no luggage or real room service.

If you're a Lobby person then you'll enjoy the beautiful lobby at this HIE. It's large and delightfuly decorated! Very welcoming. It is also the only way into the hotel which offers a nice sense of security.

There is a coffee bar immediately across from the elevator at the end of the lobby. This appeared to be 24 hours and was a nice touch, especialy the location.

This elevator is the only one for all floors of the hotel however and it was clear in the morning that it was going to take awhile to leave the building. It was spring break time though. It was very obvious that the housekeeping staff didn't like all the guests in the building. They were not friendly at all. The rest of the hotel staff was fine.

The room we had was very comfortable and clean. This hotel was very quiet given that it backs right up to the interstate. Even the hallways were very quiet, usually you can hear other guests heading to their rooms or kids running down the halls but it was very quiet here. We heard no overhead noises either.

This hotel is easy to get to with lots of fast food restaurants just down the road. Immediately next door within walking distance are a Cracker Barrel restaurant, and a gas station with convenience store. These three businesses have their parking lots spill out into the lane which leads to the only traffic light. this causes traffic tie ups in all parking lots when that lane is full of cars waiting at the light.

We had a standard double room and were pleasantly surprised to have a large sink and countertop area with a small refrigerator. Room ammenties were not very generous however. No make-up remover packets, shower caps or comp water in the rooms. But the room was comfortable and we would stay here again.

We went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast because the free breakfast bar was purely continental only. Not much was really offered.

On my drive to visit family in Florida for the holidays, I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff was very friendly and check in was effortless. The only disappointment was that this location did not honor the Holiday Inn "club" price, but they did count with points. I forgot the name of the program - my husband has it through his business travels.

The room was very spacious and very clean. There was free wireless internet available which was very convenient to have as my husband is a workaholic and can't go a day without checking his e-mail - even on vacation. I am weird about pillows and always bring my own. The hotel has very comfortable pillows which were a big plus.

There is a Cracker Barrel next door that we walked to for a late dinner. It was nice not having to drive somewhere since we had been on the road for 13 hours that day.

There is free breakfast in the morning, but we did not have any. We had to hit the road again.

I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express to anyone.

  • Liked — The convenience being right off of I-75.

This hotel is a great place to stay in Gainesville. Me and my family were on the way to Orlando and stopped for the night. The room was clean and was very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and professional. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get their moneys worth while staying in Gainesville.
