Stayed here for 4 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. Had a wonderful time in Gainesville area in large part due to the pleasant experience of staying here. The room was clean, comfortable, and did not notice any intruding sounds from other rooms or outside hotel despite that it was a full house over the holiday with adults, kids, and dogs. The hotel staff managed the packed hotel calmly and cooly from all hotel stations. Breakfast was well organized even with every table full and more people arriving to fill every vacated table. I liked that you could pay $3 and get scrambled eggs or an omlette cooked to order in addition to the other free offerings which include Jimmy Dean microwaveable sausage muffins. Its a convenient location in a good neighborhood with a good restaurant named Wahoo across the street. I also liked the bar attached to hotel which was nice for a nightcap or two after the car was put away for the night. 4 nights, no complaints about anything. Would stay here next time I come to Gainesville.

Thanks for the comments. It's always great to hear that our staff was able to work well in busy conditions. I will pass along your comments to all department managers to share with their staff. We do receive a lot of compliments on our made to order omelets. I am glad you enjoyed the breakfast here at the Gateway Grand. Have an Great New Year.

By far one of the best places that I have stayed, Great rooms, great service, the only thing that I could complain about was the weather and they may have even tried to do something about that as well. Always look forward to staying there and will do so again.

Room Tip: Get one with a fridge and a microwave they really come in handy.

Always our first choice when needing a place to stay in Gainesville. The staff is always polite and helpful, rooms are super clean and well-maintained, it is a very dog-friendly hotel with a new large field for our pup to romp and the omelette station is back! Hooray!

The staff was excellent. They couldn't of been nicer or more helpful. Rooms were clean and well kept. The restaurant/bar was great and we had a lot of fun there. Would request a room not so close to the lobby because of noise from the breakfast service. The management is excellent and their staff reflects it.

This is a decent hotel for a reasonable price with reasonable amenities. Everything appeared clean when I was there and I can't say I had any issues whatsoever. I was there with a group of people from around the world for a meeting nearby and I think we all enjoyed our time there. My only complaint would be how early the bar closes, but I understand they may not regularly have that kind of a group there to justify later hours. Thankfully we were able to get some drinks to go and were able to go stand around outside for a while longer.

The staff was very well trained and extremely courtious. I had trouble accesing the fitness center and the staff fixed it in minutes, even giving me a seperate card to use since my room card didn't work at the center.
