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.

Overall hotel was comfortable. GM and staff wonderful and pleasant. Hotel was being remodeled but didn't take away from the professionalism or comfort. Room needed vacuumed...but overall very clean.

We enjoyed a great room, excellent, friendly service and a nice morning meal each day. If we get the same room next time as requested could not be happier.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Julio1 Great service
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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mineandyours Our room
My sister and I stayed for 2 nights instead of 3 because of noise. We had an adjoining room close to the end of the hall. On the second night, I could hear loud talking by a male. I had specifically asked for a room away from the stairs/elevator because I was hoping for peace and quiet, but this didn't happen. The ceiling around the fan was full of dust and there is actually a pattern on the ceiling from it. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tony72 Dingy and rundown
I was disappointed to find this hotel so rundown. The carpets looked dingy. The room itself was clean, but had seen better days. A plate under the carpet in the room's entryway moved up and down anytime anyone walked over it.
I and other guests even got locked out in the pool area when I went to there tiny workout room to exercise. I had to call the front desk to let me back in because the keycard thingie didn't work.
None of this is such a big deal except that of the three Holiday Inns I've stayed at in the last month, this was the most expensive for the least value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sacoss Great room, nice pool, excellent staff
I've stayed here twice with my family and had the same room each time. My room was perfect: spacious, super clean, fresh smelling, extra furniture, and nice decor. Easy access to the amenities. The staff (Branden in particular) were all very polite and friendly. The only down-side for me was that this is a very popular stop for traveling sports teams of children/teens that are loud and sometimes obnoxious. They are always in the hotel's public areas, rather than in their rooms. Breakfast was chaotic and so noisy with the droves of excited youths with their families, chaperons, coaches, etc. This was not the fault of the hotel or staff, but it did impact the quality of my stay.
