Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 286 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beds not that comfortable The mattress needs to be changed or rotated. I slept at an angle. July 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel/Bad trip/AWESOME STAFF We traveled to Gainesville for our daughter's surgery at Shands. The car overheated just before we got there. Hotel staff gave us directions to close auto part store and water enough to limp there. My husband replaced the ruptured hose. Hotel was Clean & comfortable with good rates close to hospital. That morning my husband and I were able to grab some awesome coffee and wrapped snacks at the free breakfast buffet which we ate during surgery (not in front of our daughter since she was not allowed to eat or drink anything) Surgery went fine and we headed home only to realize (hours after check out) that her favorite teddy bear was NOT with us. Called front desk who called housekeeping. They verified he had been under the bed was rescued and safe. We turned our car around (20 miles out) to get her beloved Mr. Bear since post op was NOT a good time to make her forget him. Space here is limited, fill in the blanks.The TLC we received was WAY ABOVE call of duty and appreciated it so much July 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Value This is not our first stay at this property and it met our expectations. July 22, 2015
