Staff is extremely friendly. You are greeted with the best freshly baked cookies in the lobby. Right next to I95, a gas station , and Crackle Barrell. Breakfast is good for the cost. Rooms are very clean! My only complaints are in the morning you can hear people in the hall and the bed was a little hard for my taste. I definitely recommend it and will be staying there in the future!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are conveniently located off I-75. We do try very hard to go out of our way for every guest. I would like to address the issues that you had during your stay. My suggestion is to request a high floor, there may be less traffic in the morning and try a king bed. Also, if there is anything at all that is not to your satisfaction, please inform the front desk right away so that we can correct it. We strive on making your stay the best in town and we welcome any opportunity to "make it right".

Spent only one night here but will definitely stay again next time we are in Gainesville. It is located just off the interstate and only three miles from the UF campus. We had a room with two comfortable queen beds and the room was was spotless. The room and bathroom were both up-to-date, hotel staff was friendly, and breakfast was good. Great for the price!

We love the indoor pools at Country Inn and Suites. The one at this hotel was a little chilly but to 3 little boys it was great to be able to swim. The room was perfect...beds were comfortable, bathroom was roomy. The breakfast was good and a great way to start to the day. The staff was nice and helpful with finding a place for dinner.
We stayed at this hotel in February and enjoyed the stay, so when we were heading to S. Florida again we went ahead and booked a room before we started the trip.

When we travel to Gainesville, fl. we always stay at Country Inns and Suites, because of the staff
and the cleanliness and the comfort of the property. The hotel is close to the interstate and a variety of places to eat.

We chose this hotel when we needed to come to town to visit the VA hospital. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Ladies, the bathroom has a wall mounted make-up mirror! The staff was very friendly. The hotel includes a complimentary breakfast. The hotel is conveniently located right off I75 and is next to a Cracker Barrel and gas station. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will choose to stay here again on our next visit.

Our 6 month old daughter was having her first Cochlear Implant Surgery at Shands in gainesville. I called around to get the "Shands" rate at the hotels in the area. We chose this one and were overly impressed. The rate was great, and I had requested our room be cleaned while our daughter was in surgery so that everything would be fresh and clean when we returned. They were more than happy to do so, the staff were excellent, the room was great and the breakfast was terrific. We will be staying here from now on for our frequent trips to Gainesville for our daughters continued care.

We booked two rooms here for one night on our way to Clearwater. The rooms were reasonably clean, the staff wasn't overly friendly and billing was a nightmare. It was a very uncomfortable night due to the fact that the A/C units were so loud. Four days after check-out and the bill was paid, there was still a pre-authorization hold on our credit card (two for each room) as well as the room costs. The credit card company attempted to contact the hotel, but could reach no-one. The staff was rude when we called to inquire about this. We travel all the time and have never encountered this issue before. The staff informed us that it was their standard procedure to leave the hold on credit cards for 3-5 business days. This is totally unacceptable and we will not only never stay at this hotel again, we will never stay at a Country Inn & Suites again.

I'm sorry that you are having difficulty with your bank however, as I have explained to you, the charges you incurred during your stay were legitimate. The hotel staff has tried to help you each time you have called and extended the utmost courtesy as is expected of them. Again I would be happy to talk to whoever you need me to but I can not remove charges or authorizations that do not exist. A hold on your credit card is not determined by the hotel but by your bank. It is your individual banks policies and procedures that determine how long a hold will stay on your card which is posted in writing at the front desk. I can assure you that our hotel maintains the highest standards and any misunderstandings can be addressed if you would like to contact the hotel.
