Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Butterfly Kat Hotel overall experience
The overall experience was fair. The TV consistently had tiling. It was difficult to enjoy the programs. Some stations had more tiling than others. Those stations we could not watch. The air conditioning was not working properly. The room was hot which made it difficult to sleep. The phone wasn't working properly. I had to use my cell to call the front desk. These are things mgmt can fix. But aesthetically; the bathroom was small (toilet too close to the tub), the bed next to the window didn't have enough room to get out of because it was too close to the wall. The beds were comfortable and appeared clean. The college students basketball team were loud the entire time they were there. 3rd floor.

Neither the hotel nor the IHG could generate a Receipt for my stay. Even after contacting and promising that the Hotel would send me a copy within 48 hours. On a business trip, all I have to submit is the reservation amount. Very disappointed in this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alistair1156 Holiday Inn Gainesville Center
Huge improvement. I've ben staying at this property since the 1970s and have seen lots of ups and downs in the property. The reviews from a couple of years ago weren't stellar, but tradition prevailed. I was very pleased. The latest remodel was excellent, the staff was up to HI standards, there is evening security in the parking lot, and even the grounds looked better. This is an older property (we had our senior high school prom there in 1975), but HI has done a lot with it. It is the most convenient hotel to the University of Florida (right across the street) and you're 5 minutes away from nearly anything in Gainesville. I'd recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthpawHeavy Great getaway
Comfortable room, friendly staff - only issue really was that bathroom could have been a little bigger, and the bathroom lighting a little brighter. Excellent restaurant/bar right next door

It was my first stay in a hotel alone and the first time dropping my daughter off to college. Even though it was just "preview", I was nervous. The staff was friendly and the room spotless! Instantly I felt at home. Upon waking, I realized....I may need to replace my mattress at home. This is comfort! :)

Excellent service, quality staff. Clean. Hotel is dated as are rooms. Appropriately priced. Pisanno's (bar) was excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ratpice Wonderful stay
We arrived early and were allowed into our room. From the time we checked in, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They always smiled and made sure we had everything needed. Bottles of water were constantly offered and given to us at no charge.
The hotel restaurant was fantastic. There were so many selections which made it a challenge to choose something. We ate there multiple times during our stay. The prices were reasonable and the service was great.
The desk staff have a great sense of humor and loved when we played games at the lobby tables. We were never rushed out of the lobby.
The pool has a lot of room surrounding it. Towels were provided at the pool entrance door. We recommend adding more lighting. The only lights are along the edge of the rooftop and therefore the pool closed at dusk. Our group met there after dusk to visit with each other (not swim) and it was not easy to see.
We will definitely stay here again when we go to Gainesville.
