Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Larry1 Nice Hotel in a convenient location to UF
Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is well maintained, has a rooftop pool, and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that you are on the corner of the University of Florida campus, which means that you can park once, and walk the campus the rest of the day. The only downside I encountered was the breakfast which was both not free and not at all good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by llmflorida Please make me over!
Great location. In desperate need of a update, perhaps start over. It's time to keep up with some new hotel trends. As clean as possible considering how much use this property gets and how old it is. It still has popcorn ceilings.
The staff was accommodating. They were all very pleasant.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suzy12 Great place to stay close to campus
Enjoyed staying here overall very comfortable beds and spacious room. The fitness room definitely could be updated, not very good, but the pool area is great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by msbaum Convenient to University, great food in restaurant
Was visiting the University with my daughter and her friend because they're considering attending. Graduated from UF 20 years ago myself so am very familiar with campus and knew staying at Holiday Inn would be super convenient and we could walk everywhere and not have to mess with parking on campus. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The AC was a wall unit that we had to set to the coldest temp so the room didn't feel humid. We were only there one night so that was fine. Piesanos restaurant in the lobby was excellent! We ate lunch and dinner there. If we go back for another University visit I would stay at the Holiday Inn again because it's a decent value for the price and is very convenient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GCASS Excellent Customer Service
Linda, the Guest Services Manager, and the front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. During my stay, they didn't have someone available to drive the shuttle so they offered to have a car service take me where I needed to go at no charge. Since parking around the UF campus is extremely challenging, the free shuttle service is very important to me. Also, I have a student at UF and the location of this hotel is a real plus to me. In addition, they have a great restaurant next door that is one of my favorites! I come to Gainesville several times a year and I always look forward to staying at this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ExpectedBetter472 Good Location but not well maintained
One of the most marginal HI properties I've encountered. Attached restaurant (Piesanos) was good. Rooms are not in very good condition and at least mine was in need of new plumbing, plastering, painting and maintenance. Air conditioner was on full blast and barely cooled the room. Internet was slow and cumbersome. TV took 5 seconds to change channels. Cheap spongy pillows. Rooftop lounge and pool were closed during my whole stay for a "private function". Wish they had told me that before I arrived.
