Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnMaryKSC Excllent Service & Outstandig Location!
The University Center is the closest hotel property to the University of Florida - it's right across the street!
In addition to close proximity to the campus and hundreds of restaurants and pubs, it is a short walk to some great Gator stores.
But the biggest advantage are the people who work there and make you feel like you're returning to old friends. It may be one of the oldest inns in Gainesville, but it continues to improve each and every time we visit.
We can't imaging staying anywhere else!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandmother w/ children Comfortable bed and great service
I would want to see a different continental breakfast. It would have been nice to have had hot food available and a choice for a mild coffee. Plus the time of the breakfast was late. We had to be at the hospital early and 7 o’clock was too late. Assistance into the hotel very nice.

Just an average hotel, no complaints other than the heating/cooling is outdated, renovations were a little sloppy and limited amenities.Guest services were professional and polite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rod45! Staff Assistance
After it was determined that the only way I going to have a quiet room during daylight hours was to change rooms and floors, the staff assisted me in making the move efficiently.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alf1975 Overall a decent hotel, needs work on the bathroom.
Overall the hotel stay was fine. The only issues we had were the bathroom really needed some updating as there was noticable items in disrepair and the breakfast was a bit underwelming. I did think the customer service of the personnel that worked at the hotel was great and everything else met or exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smiling Jack 500 Best pizza in Gatorville (Gainesville, FL)
The Holiday Inn - University Center, Gainesville, FL is located just across the street from the University of Florida campus. The staff is genuinely friendly and efficient. The university atmosphere is prevalent with many restaurants and small shops close by. Connected to the hotel is Piesano's which has a excellent selection of beer on tap and arguably the best "stone fired" pizza in town. Great place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bama Girl in Virginia Great Staff!!
I was in Gainesville because a family member was critically ill at Shands Hospital. The Holiday Inn staff were by far the most professional, efficient, compassionate, helpful and understanding staff I have ever experienced at any hotel in which I have stayed. In my 70 years, I have visited quite a few! It was very helpful to have a quick breakfast in the lobby and then have one of the wonderful shuttle drivers take me to Shands. In the evening they were very prompt to pick me up for my return to the hotel. They made a very difficult situation much easier to handle! I highly, highly recommend the Holiday Inn Gainesville-University Ctr.!
