We stayed over the weekend when visiting UF. We booked and were able to get a great rate by calling hotel directly and speaking with the manager..(I think his name is Paul). The hotel was located close to the UF campus and Hospital. Hotel is very clean. Staff was very friendly. Very nice and large room, bedding and bed very comfortable. Stay at Howard Johnson Express Inn hotel during my granddaughter's UF school even and will definitely stay here whenever we are in town. Has free wifi and free continental free breakfast. Overall very satisfied during our 3 night stay. Looking forward to coming back to Gainesville, FL.
