Very nice lobby area, the room we had had 2 queen beds and they were very comfortable. Slept very well! The breakfast was great, from what looked like freshly baked cinnamon rolls to the eggs, sausage and biscuits, everything tasted great. Would definetley stay again at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yolyara Great experience
We have visited the Gainesville area various times to visit our daughter at UF and are relieved to know that we have finally found a nice hotel to stay in. Rooms, rugs and common areas are extremely clean, updated. Customer service was efficient and very concerned as to whether we were fine with our accommodations. Excellent Holiday Inn Express. We definitely will look to return to this hotel next time we are in Gainesville, there is no need to explore any other hotels.

I was traveling through Gainesville and looking for that comfortable bed that I usually get at Holiday Inn Express.
When I checked in there was only one room available and it was a smoking room.
The room was old and outdated with a dirty ceiling fan in the room.
Between the smell of smoke, a musky smell and uncomfortable bed I didn't get very much rest.
$90 was more than anyone should have to pay to stay in such a run down room.
Out of all of the Holiday Inn Express hotels I've stayed this one is probably one of the older rooms.
By the way, the employees were very nice!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dan5701 Some staff need to improve
Upon arrival, I was processed, not greeted.. There was male employee B***y at the reception desk on Oct 19th, (not to name anybody). He just looks at me and says 2 words: "Reservation?... Name?" After a long day's drive on my part, a word of welcome and something that might have looked like a smile would have been appreciated. "Car make and model, initial here, sign here". "Here are your keys - Elevator's right there". No info about breakfast or anything else. It's not as if he were overworked, no one else was waiting at the desk.
On the way out for dinner, I mentioned to him that I thought there would be a refrigerator in my room. He simply said "Some rooms do, some don't" He was saved by a phone call so I left.
It was my fifth consecutive night at a Holiday Inn / Holiday Inn Express and this was the worst PR I've seen on this trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by summ1 A great location for a wedding weekend
We spent three nights here while attending my nephew's wedding and enjoyed our stay at your hotel. The property was great, the staff went the extra mile for every body and the location was in close proximity of a of the activities. To sum it up, a plesant weekend event enhaced by our stay at your property...

I'm a platinum member but no upgrade was offered. I stayed 3 nights and only had 1 bottle if water left on the last day in my room. The bedside lamps did not work and I had to call down immediately after checking in. Lobby computer never worked while I was there. Got a bowl of cereal and poured milk in inly to find it clumped and soured. I stay here about two weeks out of each month and it is getting worse and worse. I may find another hotel for my next trip to the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoachIzzy Beautiful Room, Comfy bed
I had the pleasure of spending a night in Gainesville's Holiday Inn Express off Archer Road. The staff was courteous, professional, and the room was astounding! It seemed as if I were in a studio apartment. The features were well received and the bed was pleasantly surprising. I was well rested the next day to perform my job duties flawlessly. The continental breakfast was ok because my dietary needs are quite specific. Overall, I would recommend this hotel hands down! Thanks Holiday Inn Express!!!

Lady who checked me in was great. No welcome pack though. Staff spent a lot of time smoking outside, not good considering I was there with a lung transplant friend. As you walked outside the smell of smoke was too strong.
Water smell was disgusting.
Noisy from facing I75

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mamamare Worst hotel stay this decade
It says the hotel allows pets, but it didn't say anything about having to stay in a SMOKING ROOM if you brought a pet. So disgusting. I guess the girl checking me in didn't see the notation that I had a pet and so she gave me a room on the 4th floor. That night, my husband and I were walking the dog before going to bed and the front desk clerk called us back from the elevator. She said we couldn't bring the dog up or we would be charged $200 pet cleaning fee. She was very rude. And so, at 12:30 am (that's right, after midnight) the hotel made us move rooms. My daughter who was already asleep had to be woken up to move. And then the smoking room was disgusting. Never again! I would rather sleep in my car.
I should mention that I stay at Holiday Inn Express' everywhere and this was the most distasteful experience I've ever had. I even have Gold Status with IHG Rewards Club... as if that front desk cared.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by madison01 Confused
The Hotel was very nice, however when I booked the room it was getting late in the evening and I had been driving all day so was anxious to call it quits and get a good night sleep. I called the priority one (which has been changed to something else) to make my reservations. I was OK with the price of the room and asked for a non-smoking room. I also was bringing a pet. This particular Holiday Inn unlike the many others I have stayed at does not allow pets in non-smoking rooms, so they did call me back to tell me this as I was driving up to the entrance of the Hotel. Since it was already a long day and trying to find another hotel that allowed pets I decided to take the room. The young man who helped me was not friendly when I checked in, he was at the end of his shift and wasn't very helpful. The room they put me in must have had a leak and the bathroom floor was soaked, they put me in another room but did not apologize for the inconvenience. I feel that there should be an additional fee for smokers if there is one for pets. I also do not understand the need to put someone in a smoking room because they are traveling with a pet. Again I have stayed in many Holiday Inns and I have NEVER had to take a smoking room because of the pet. Very disappointing I am sure this is an isolated Hotel management decision but inconsiderate to a guest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DQ52 Nice "extras"
We've stayed in many Holiday Inn Express motels over the last several years and they have all been great, BUT this one had a couple of extras that made out stay even more enjoyable. Every day we had 2 bottles waters delivered to our room when the maid cleaned and room. Every afternoon/evening when we returned, there were fresh cookies waiting for us at the front desk! Both of these things were nice touches and were very much appreciated. It's the little things that make a BIG difference!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by maxmox Pet friendly? I don't think so!
We were willing to pay $25 for our non-shedding, hypoallergenic mini-schnauzer, but hotel policy also required that we stay in a smoking room. This was not advertised, so we didn't know in advance. At first I thought my husband and I (both non-smokers) could handle it for one night, but this turned out to be a terrible mistake- -neither of us slept (maybe the dog?) and our clothes stunk for days afterwards! So, if you're a smoker, this may well be a fine place to stay with your pet--otherwise, be aware of this rule. I'd truly like to see some consistent rules for Holiday Inn properties! Since I travel a lot with my dog, I'm always checking and calling hotels--a tedious process which doesn't always work out well, as in this case.

Although the Inn is situated in a hidden cove type area, I had no problem locating it and was surprised at the ample parking facilities.
The room and staff were excellent, the breakfast was more than I had expected and would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone that would listen.
Keep up the good work.

The Holiday Inn Express in Gainesville, FL was a great value. The only complaint was the coffee. Probably the worst coffee ever. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the room really clean.

The hotel was bright and spotless. The desk clerk, a young lady was courteous and helpful. The free breakfast was fresh, hot and ready to go at 7am as promised. We travel from south to north to visit our grandchildren frequently throughout the year this will definitely be a preferred stop.
