Featured Gainesville Hotels

Stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Gainesville, Florida. In no time you'll be relaxing at an open-air concert and hiking up into the stands of the legendary University of Florida football stadium.

Guests of our Gainesville hotels can start exploring this university town from Bo Diddley Community Plaza, in pedestrian-friendly downtown. The centerpiece bandshell hosts frequent free concerts. On Wednesdays the plaza overflows with vendors selling fruit, veggies and fresh-baked bread at the Union Street Farmer's Market. Our hotels in Gainesville are near the University of Florida, home of the Gators football team. Climb into the stands for a bird's-eye view of the football field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, known to Gators fans as "The Swamp." Afterward, you can visit the delicate butterflies thriving in the on-campus Florida Museum of Natural History.

Our hotels in Gainesville are near the shops and restaurants filling the streets around Bo Diddley Plaza. Boutiques in the Union Street Station mall sell hip clothes and vintage duds, but if you're looking for Gators-branded gear, head to the campus bookstore. Follow the university students' lead and grab a quick sandwich and coffee from a downtown cafe and stake out a grassy spot in the sun in Bo Diddley Plaza. At night, guests of our Gainesville hotels can jam to indie-rock or party to trendy hits in the city's student-fueled live music and dance clubs. For a more laidback evening, unwind at a chic cocktail lounge or genteel British-style pub with a pint.

Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Gainesville to enjoy the exuberant student culture downtown and the nature reserves just outside of the city. It's a short drive to Paynes Prairie, where graceful egrets and herons swoop over viewing platforms and walking paths wind through steamy marshes and lush forests.

Clean comfortable room.
By Michael9865
I neglected to check that this hotel also included smoking rooms. I'm used to staying at non smoking ones. The lobby where breakfast was served smelled very smoky, and I happened to enter through a [More] door on the smoking side that caught me off guard. If it weren't for that, this would have been a perfect stay. [Less]

Great Location
By ets5017
I stay in this hotel often for business as it's within close walking distance of much of the University of Florida campus. Pros - Hotel staff is very friendly. The restaurant is nice and offers a [More] good selection of food and drinks. The view from the rooms looks over the UF campus. The rooms are overall very clean and comfortable. AC units always work well and there are both soft and firm pillows on each bed. Cons - Water temperature in the showers can fluctuate creating bursts of very hot or very cold water. Internet is often very slow. [Less]
