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.

A very comfortable, anxiety relieving, place to stay.
By Ex Hamptons Property Mgr
No one is perfect! But maybe the staff at this hotel is! My husband was having a very serious operation at the Veteran's hospital (4 miles away) and I was a wreck, being by myself although they [More] approved our service dog to stay with me and they do also allow pets. My husband who had his own worries was so pleased to know that I was being taken care of. The willingness of all of the staff to be of service was amazing!! Security was always ready to help me even keeping my dog from always wanting to get out of the elevator. Housekeepers were attentive with questions about my needs, I asked for privacy so not to frighten them with the dog. Front Desk staff noticed me before I even got in front of them, This with a very busy area between guests and the telephone ringing off the hook. CUSTOMER CARE is alive and well at the Holiday Inn in Gainesville. Will be back with girlfriends for a getaway of happiness. Husband made it through. stayed 2 nights. [Less]
Good conference experience
By FLWildLife
Attended a 3-day meeting based at the hotel and stayed onsite, so saw and used most of the facilities. Conference staff and hotel manager were incredibly accommodating for meeting needs. It was a [More] large group and meeting logistics needed to be adjusted due to weather conditions. Staff were responsive, interactive took care of all the details. Food in restaurant is excellent. Lobby is inviting and conference facilities were much larger and more adjustable than we expected. All-in-all, the meeting was a much better experience than we could have hoped for, at a very reasonable price and good location (near university). I would recommend it for meetings of 100 people or less. [Less]
