Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gegarvett Noisy room
There was a soft drink machine on the other side of our interior wall.
The fan ran all night and made it a long noisy night.
I told the woman at the front desk and she did not seem interested.

I used coupon from booklet-Good Value! The front desk staff was great as well as the woman who made the morning breakfast..the eggs were "good" not like at other free breakfast hotels. Usually more than I like to spend when traveling..but worth it!

We spent a couple of nights here on our way home. My husband used the handicap chair to get in the pool. The management is GREAT.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Docery Staff, location and facilities were outstanding!
Made our travel plans memorably favorable. While travelling longer distances, it is always good to find an outstanding place to spend the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Retirees53 Very Nice property
Loved the beds and pillows. Very clean and comfortable. It was nice and quiet and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great also. It's a great location right off 75. We liked it so much we stayed both on our trip down and then again on our way back.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Upset Platimum Customer Be Careful when you sign-in ...
Very...Very...Very Bad Experience... These guys changed my reservation, made me sign for a room, and then charged me for a cleaning fee, on a technicality... The hotel might have the right to do it (because I signed in good faith when I checked-in), but they have the WRONG business accumen... Not to mention the management attitude: I felt that they enjoyed the situation when I exposed to them my case... You now have two strikes (the last review was also very bad)... Be careful since you might strike OUT soon...

This is suppose to be a pet friendly hotel!!! This may be, HOWEVER, not people friendly!!! In order to have my 9 lb dog we were forced to stay in a smoking room! The staff was kind enough to deodorize the room BUT it was horrible!!! The bed, mattress, sheets, pillows, etc, reeked of smoke!!! Left there with sore throat and sinus problems. Why wouldn't a hotel accommodate non-smokers with their pets???? Are all pet owners smokers???? OF COURSE NOT!!! THIS IS A REDICULOUS RULE!!!! There is no reasonable explanation for this rule! They have lost my business!!!!

We always prefer Holiday Inn Express rooms or Suites to provide a home away from home setting. This hotel lives up to our expectations of price and quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moving2014 A Wonderful Stay in Gainesville
My husband and I were in Gainesville looking for our new "dream house". Three nights at this hotel and all three were excellent. Our status was commented on and we were upgraded to a suite. That was a pleasant surprise. I can't say anything negative about this property (and I'm very picky). We'll definitely stay here again next time we're in Gainesville...

Stayed here for the University of Florida graduation and this was a great place to stay. Close to the "O Dome", shopping and great food. I recommend Ker's wing house. Staff was great and very friendly. What I liked the best best was that the hotel was fully booked and there was still ample parking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Moogie Room very clean and comfortable.
I left the silk jacket that I was wearing to a wedding the next day in the closet accidentally. I called 6 hours after leaving the hotel and they told me there was nothing left in the room. I know it was there. They verified my phone number and said they would give me a call. Either the cleaning staff took my jacket and didn't log it in or someone was not honest. I will never return to the facility again. All other aspects of the hotel were excellent but dishonesty does not sit well with me. Employees should be held to a higher standard, one of integrity and honesty.

The exterior appearance and landscaping at this Holiday Inn Express were very impressive.
Front desk service was excellent, and we were directed to a very convenient area with numerous restaurants.
The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. There was a roomy sitting area complete with fridge and microwave.
The only negative was the drabness of the corridors, which appear narrow, possible as a result of an overabundance of dark colours, particularly brown.
Access to and from I75 is excellent.

I always leave early and the Lady was early and offered to let me grab some food before she finished setting up. Although I waited,anyway, she offered to help. The breakfast was good and this was the first time I stayed at this location. Will be back.

This was my fourth year in a row staying at this hotel and I will definitely return next year. The cleanliness of my room and the premises in general are excellent. The staff is courteous and very friendly. The breakfast food bar is well apportioned with different kinds of coffee available. Highly recommended.

We booked our reservation 6 months ahead and when we asked for a king size bed we were told none were available. We suggested this hotel to friends and they booked their room 3 months later. When we saw their room which had a king size bed, a refridgerator, and water supplied in the room, none of which we had, we were disappointed. The cost of both their room and ours were similar.

Public areas were upgraded, clean and appealing. Our guest room was tired. Case goods were dated and had cigarette burns on them. Silver backing on full length mirror is coming off. Toilet seat was loose. Toilet paper roll holder too close to toilet. It's the little things that make it or break it.

This was an excellent Holiday Inn Express. All the nice touches are appreciated. Love the fan over the bed. Hotels could save a lot on electricity for cooling if they would install ceiling fans.
The only thing thing that needed attention were the windows, both inside and out were so dirty it was hard to see outside.

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.

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.
