Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 355 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! February 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mediocre / Convenient to UF Just an average hotel, no complaints other than the heating/cooling is outdated, renovations were a little sloppy and limited amenities.Guest services were professional and polite. January 28, 2016
