Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kim828 Great value and good location to the university
The staff at the hotel in Gainesville are very accommodating and friendly. The rooms need updating as does the hotel in general but it is clean the people nice. The breakfast is NOT very good. All prepackaged food (NO eggs or protein) such as muffins, granola bars,and awful bagels. Aside from the food, I would recommend this hotel and I travel a lot.

Overall a good experience. The breakfast had a poor selection but decent. The room was clean and comfortable but less then expected. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful.
Overall it was good and enjoyed the experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miss58 Great location and comfortable beds
This is an older hotel but it has been renovated. My room was completely updated and super clean. The furnishings, beds and linens were all in excellent condition. The bed was super comfortable and I slept well. There were more than enough electric sockets and I didn't have to crawl behind the bed to reach them. The bathroom shower was very nice and furnished with more than enough amenities. The water pressure was very nice. The AC worked appropriately as well as the TV. To my surprise there was also a small refrigerator and microwave provided along with a coffee pot. The hotel was going through additional renovations in the lounge area so we were provided with danishes, cereals, bagels, muffins, etc. in the lobby area which was fine. I can't say enough about the staff at the front desk! Wow! At night the young lady that checked us in was very helpful and gave us dinner recommendations and also gave us directions for the next days travels along with arranging a shuttle for us. In the morning we were helped once again by a gentlemen that made sure we were transported to U.F. for our daughters orientation. A great experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Gainesville.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ken d1234 Decent stay
Overall good stay. Ran out of food in the morning. They were not prepared for the demand which in part was not their fault. There were a lot of people who checked in around midnight bc of the traffic on 75. Rooms were a little worn as well which is to be expected when you stay on any campus. Overall we were happy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rob32937 Clogged Shower, Dated Rooms and Over Priced
The hotel was by far the worst property that I have ever stayed at in the IHG Family. I now realize why I stay at HI Express or higher quality brands. The shower was clogged so you took a bath and shower at the same time. The pain was peeling on the tub, apparently they did "renovations" which means they painted rather than replaced items. The "executive room" was extremely small and VERY OVERPRICED. I have stated at Intercontinental for the price of this Holiday Inn. I would never stay here again, in fact, I am kicking myself for not staying at the HI Express, which was a lot further away. The staff was very nice I do give them that.
