Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCWE Warm and welcoming staff and environment
I was part of a family group of 13 who stayed at the Holiday Inn Gainesville-University Center over a long weekend. The staff was warm, helpful and efficient. Through no fault of the hotel, there was a short power outage which impacted it. The staff handled this situation calmly and seemed to be prepared for such situations. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others even though I did not have time to take advantage of all the amenities.
The landscaping may need a little refreshing (looks tired) and perhaps a local small business florist would like a contract for some fresh flowers in the lobby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Angie98 Outdated Hotel
Bed is comfortable, but for the price, you will be able to stay in a more upscale hotel, This hotel is older with outdated furniture, cleanliness and maintenance would be below average. The front desk and bell staff is very friendly, and check-in/out is easy. The bathroom had a strong urine smell, which was almost overwhelming, and even though I cleaned the floor myself (thinking it had not been mopped), the odor remained and was strong enough that you had to leave the door open when showering. Overall, this hotel is very close to the university and within walking distance to restaurants, but there are nicer hotels with better amenities within the same proximity.
