We went to Gainesville because we needed to go to the University for a few days. This hotel is very close to the University. It is an older hotel, however, that doesn't mean that it wasn't a nice place to stay. Sure, a few upgrades and repairs here and there would go a long way, but it was very clean and quiet. The staff, although I didn't interact with them much because I didn't need to, were all very nice. We enjoyed hanging out by the pool. The only disappointment was that when I went on line looking for a hotel near the University, I wanted 2 things. A pool and a restaurant...ok...a bar too. This one came up as an option. To our disappointment, the restaurant has been closed down. No place on site to eat. Yes, there are places nearby, but I wanted one on site. They do have a light breakfast in the lobby in the morning. Better get there before 9AM or they will take it away while you're standing there. All in all, it was a nice stay. PS...Leonardo's Pizza just across the street was very good....
