Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seth5.0 Good stay close to campus
Stayed here on business, doing some recruiting of students for my company. Overall, I am satisfied with my stay. They offer a shuttle service and have a decent continental breakfast in the morning. I will probably stay here again next time I come back to Gainesville. You can't beat the location!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrStewart15 Great location and Amazing Staff!
This hotel is such a great place to stay! It is in a prime location that is close to campus. But more important than the hotel location and general accommodations, is the awesome Guest Service/Front Desk staff! The Guest Service/Front Desk staff is so friendly and helpful! Their customer service is unparalleled to any hotel I have ever stayed. I highly suggest staying at this hotel just for the opportunity to interact with these amazing individuals!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TT swim mom Clean, comfortable and friendly
I was in Gainesville for a swim meet at the O'Connell center. The hotel is only 5 blocks away. The hotel is in the middle of local restaurants which is nice to get away from the chain restaurants. Hotel staff referred me to a great local organic coffee/pastry store called Karma and Kreme. But is also an easy drive to Archer blvd if you want the chain restaurants and grocery stores.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mari19890 Great customer service - poor infrastructure
The personel at the hotel was very kind and always tried to solve any issue I had or any request . Still the infrastructure was not , especially the internet service which for me was critical and it was unreliable and slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnHenry Holiday Inn was an excellent place to being close to de UF
It was my first experience visiting Gainesville, and Holiday Inn was an excellent place to being close to de UF and close to every place that I needed to visit. It´s a quiet, clear and comfortable hotel. I strongly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cfree great personnel
Once again, I cannot stress how pleasant and helpful ALL the staff was. I would not come to Gainesville and not stay here if rooms were available.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WSMBAVisitor Great Location for UF! Not luxury
The hotel trades on its proximity to the university. As far as overall experience, it was average. It is neither the nicest nor worst hotel in which I have ever stayed.
The good? Location, the restaurant, and the staff-They are all exceptional. The front desk was VERY welcoming, and gave great recommendations on food and the area. The restaurant offers a varied Italian menu,and the pizza is truly tasty. The location is top-notch, as one literally crosses the street to campus.
The bad? They've been mentioned before, I will echo them: The ceilings in the room are seven (7) feet. I am 6'3", and felt a bit claustrophobic. The wi-fi is as near to useless as one can get without being nonexistent. The overall feel of the room is dated, but not objectionably so.
If you are looking for a great location and average accommodations with great service levels, this hotel is a great choice. Will I go back? Probably, if it is just me. If my wife is along, we will more thank likely choose a nicer hotel further from campus.
