“Nice, but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

We always love to stay at Homewood Suites. It was obvious that this one had been renovated. It looked nice upon arrival, but turned out to be quite a noisy stay. Our first room was so noisy up above us that we had to move. The front desk was great and moved us immediately. Unfortunately, the bedroom wall was so thin that we could hear the people next door talking late into the night and early the next morning. The breakfast was great and all the staff was friendly and helpful. All in all it was an OK stay, just tough to sleep with what seems like thin walls.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014

The staff was not welcoming at all. They barely spoke, and the didn't exhibit any excitement about their job or attending to the guest. The room service was poor. The minimum was done to clean the room. Staff did not clean the room, they just changed out the towels and toiletries, and made the bed. Upon arrival to my room I noticed the carpeting in the hallway needed to be vacuumed, especially in front of my room door. I brought it to the attention of one of the service staff members. This hotel is in a great location and could have better reviews if a little more attention is rendered towards cleaning and service.

This hotel went way beyond my expectations! All the staff, especially the front desk staff, went out of their way to help us settle in after a long drive. Our suite was exceptionally comfortable and spotless. The breakfast staff in the morning was cheery and did everything to make us happy. Fabulous service and rooms.

This hotel is dirty. The kitchen is extremely poorly equipped. The sound from anything going on outside or in the hallways comes into the room with no buffer. Most of the staff doesn't acknowledge your existence beyond the checkin. I highly recommend not staying here.

Just stayed overnight, but would be a very nice place to stay for an extended period. Very clean and well kept. Our room was a 2 bdrm suite with a really nice equipped kitchen. Had our two little dogs with us on the way to south Florida. Plenty of space to walk them outside the hotel. Great breakfast in the morning.

I had to stay here for two months while my house was being fixed from a flood. The staff and the accomadations were excellent and I was so glad to have a nice hot breakfast provided for me and my daughter every day.

If you have a chace to stay at this hotel they go above and beyond for service, friendliness and clean rooms! Not only does the front desk staff go above and beyond but Flower who is in the breakfast area wil make your day with her friendly smile and hugs!! I would recommend this hotel as it is near Shands Hospital, University of Florida and the interstate with many shops and restaurants near by. Once again thanks Homewood Suites Gainesville for a great stay!
