Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CarolineB1 Holiday Inn Gainesville - handicap room
The room needs updating. The carpet is in good shape, but the bed, pillows and sheets seem "tired" . The shower seat that folds down in the bathroom is very old, looks worn and is about to detach from the wall. The floor in the bathroom, when we checked-in, was very wet and we checked-in late in the evening so house keeping had not recently been in. The room also has an odor that is very noticeable when sleeping in the bed. The room needs a complete over-haul. I have stayed at the hotel many times and like it. The staff is very friendly and helpful to me. Location is excellent. I will stay again, but definitely not in that room; I will find a different hotel if the room is my only choice.

Stopped here while travelling to South Florida after 20 hours on the road. Easy check in to a comfortable room and the pool was great to relax in. The bar and restaurant was great as was the hotel staff.

Only stayed at one Holiday Inn in the past (in Orlando) and wasn't impressed. This one in Gainesville was excellent. Clean room and friendly staff. Just wish some of the covered parking was open to regular size vehicles - not just compact cars, but that would be my only nit-pick! Warm cookies in the lobby when we arrived, quick check-in and check-out. Would definitely stay there again!

After a long day of driving and moving my kid into her dorm at UF, I was happy to come into a clean, cool and comfortable room. I did not have problem parking my van either. Thank you, and I plan on coming back soon.

We would definitely stay here again. The room was clean and very comfortable and a great location across from UF.

Perfect location across the street from UF. Within walking distance to many restaurants.

Although I understand the Continental Breakfast was undergoing changes/construction there was little variety. There were toasters but only bagels to toast. I was there three days and would have preferred to have some toast on one or more of thosed days. No variety of fruit, only bananas.
When I got to my room I looked in the book provided for information about the hotel and could not find any recommendations for dining in the area other than the one at the hotel itself. I would have liked to know what other options I had rather than try to look it up on the internet. Pisanos Restaurant in the lobby was good and the service was also good the two times I had a meal from there.
My stay overall was great despite the lack of a positive dining experience.

Have to say, right from the reservation up until check out, the crew was very professional and helpful. Just having a quiet room to unwind really made a difference and the pool, well done, made a bad day melt away.
