Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCWE Warm and welcoming staff and environment
I was part of a family group of 13 who stayed at the Holiday Inn Gainesville-University Center over a long weekend. The staff was warm, helpful and efficient. Through no fault of the hotel, there was a short power outage which impacted it. The staff handled this situation calmly and seemed to be prepared for such situations. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others even though I did not have time to take advantage of all the amenities.
The landscaping may need a little refreshing (looks tired) and perhaps a local small business florist would like a contract for some fresh flowers in the lobby.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Angie98 Outdated Hotel
Bed is comfortable, but for the price, you will be able to stay in a more upscale hotel, This hotel is older with outdated furniture, cleanliness and maintenance would be below average. The front desk and bell staff is very friendly, and check-in/out is easy. The bathroom had a strong urine smell, which was almost overwhelming, and even though I cleaned the floor myself (thinking it had not been mopped), the odor remained and was strong enough that you had to leave the door open when showering. Overall, this hotel is very close to the university and within walking distance to restaurants, but there are nicer hotels with better amenities within the same proximity.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CARNBAY74 Great, Caring, Friendly staff
My Mother, Daughter and I arrived at the Holiday Inn around 3 am after travelling from Tallahassee for a graduation and had to drop my mom off in Gainesville for testing at UF before driving back to Jacksonville. We were tired and the staff was so accomodating and friendly. They found us a room and gave us a great rate. It was well worth the stop to get a few hours of sleep before hitting the road.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Comfortable bed
I had a great nights sleep in the bed and the hotel was very quiet and relaxing. I will mention there were cracks all over the ceiling and in the plastic wall of the bathtub/shower that gave the room and building an "old" feeling. Overall, it was clean and quiet and I would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Larry1 Nice Hotel in a convenient location to UF
Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is well maintained, has a rooftop pool, and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that you are on the corner of the University of Florida campus, which means that you can park once, and walk the campus the rest of the day. The only downside I encountered was the breakfast which was both not free and not at all good.

Great location. In desperate need of a update, perhaps start over. It's time to keep up with some new hotel trends. As clean as possible considering how much use this property gets and how old it is. It still has popcorn ceilings.
The staff was accommodating. They were all very pleasant.
