Not too far off the highway and easy to find. The front desk night auditor, I think his name was John, was super friendly and helped us find the best deal for our dollar. Such helpfulness makes such a difference at 1am in the morning. I will stay here next time I pass through because the experience was so nice and easy!

What a little gem! Okay, so it's not a Marriott or Hilton, but the beds are super comfortable with big heavy pillows and great mattresses; there's a microwave and a little refrigerator, along with the usual bathroom amenities (soap, lotion, shampoo/conditioner, etc.); the staff is absolutely wonderful, from the Front desk clerks all the way to the housekeeping and maintenance people; and the breakfast food is good - not free, but good. Actually, we received a voucher for a free breakfast buffet because we had to wait 5 minutes to check in. Really! The pool is beautiful, and backs up to a gorgeous lake...and the trees in the courtyard and surrounding the buildings are plush with heavy Spanish moss. Just beautiful. We'll be back.

Stayed 5/18-19. Excellent and very spacious room. Balcony with view of lake. Excellent linens and comfy beds. This is also a conference center. Laundry facilities also. Convenient, just a couple miles off I75. Check-in and check-out staff were pleasant and helpful. No breakfast included but on sight restaurant had continental breakfast and a breakfast buffet available for VERY reasonable prices even for families. Would definitely stay again

Thank you for your review. I hope you took advantage of the fact that we are the ONLY lakefront hotel in Gainesville. We have very affordable rooms and suites that overlook the lake directly. Call us next time to make your reservation at the lowest rate. We would love to have you return.

On trip to South Florida we picked up on the hotel discount booklets and decided to drive until we got tired and that time came as we neared Gainesville. Stopped first at the Sleep Inn, which is right off the exit and across the street from a very large mall and numerous resturants. The area was very congested. They did not have a room for the discounted rate, so we looked at little further down the road +/- 2 miles and found the Paramount Plaza. It was in a quiet area, overlooking a lake. Luckily , they did have discounted room avail , the room was very clean, had a balcony overlooking the pool and the lake. On site restaurant was pretty good and it nice not to have to get back in the car. Everyone was very nice and I would most definitely stay here again.

I drove up to see the Cirque du Soulei at the university of Florida for two days. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the wifi was speedy, and the restaurant had pretty good good. Beds were soft and clean, we all slept very well. Check in was fast and easy, and much to my pleasant surprise, the performers from the show were staying at the hotel too! Really fun to talk to them and see them off the stage. Great atmosphere, my family loved the pool and walking around the lake on property. Would recommend.

I was in Gainesville for a conference at UF and this was the hotel with the convention rate. Last year, I also stayed here for the same conference. The hotel has been recently renovated and is comfortable and clean. The only drawback is that it is a little far out from downtown Gainesville as well as the university area. If you don't have a car, it is a problem. There is a car rental agency in the hotel (Avis). The staff is great--very friendly and courteous, always willing to help.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 1000 building.

No complaints. There are no frills, but it was just what I needed for two nights. My only negative was that as a woman staying alone, I felt a little nervous walking to my room at night in the far building. The manager said they would look into getting nighttime security.
