Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 426 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tired rooms but good amenities The rooms here are a bit outdated but the hotel overall is fairly nice. There is a great Italian restaurant connected to the hotel that's accessible via the lobby. At check-in I was given a free drink voucher to use at the restaurant because of my IHG Spire status and I definitely appreciated this. The hotel also has a nice rooftop pool which is definitely needed in that Florida heat. I would consider staying here again if I'm back in Gainesville but the hotel should consider remodeling their rooms soon. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Shuttle services Awesome shuttle service to the down town and University area. They charge for hotel breakfast in a town with a LOT of options. The adjoined italian place has 40 beers on tap with a lot of local selections and they are quick and the food is good. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Very friendly staff, clean rooms, would stay again. June 23, 2016
