Featured Gainesville Hotels

Stay at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Gainesville, Florida. In no time you'll be relaxing at an open-air concert and hiking up into the stands of the legendary University of Florida football stadium.

Guests of our Gainesville hotels can start exploring this university town from Bo Diddley Community Plaza, in pedestrian-friendly downtown. The centerpiece bandshell hosts frequent free concerts. On Wednesdays the plaza overflows with vendors selling fruit, veggies and fresh-baked bread at the Union Street Farmer's Market. Our hotels in Gainesville are near the University of Florida, home of the Gators football team. Climb into the stands for a bird's-eye view of the football field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, known to Gators fans as "The Swamp." Afterward, you can visit the delicate butterflies thriving in the on-campus Florida Museum of Natural History.

Our hotels in Gainesville are near the shops and restaurants filling the streets around Bo Diddley Plaza. Boutiques in the Union Street Station mall sell hip clothes and vintage duds, but if you're looking for Gators-branded gear, head to the campus bookstore. Follow the university students' lead and grab a quick sandwich and coffee from a downtown cafe and stake out a grassy spot in the sun in Bo Diddley Plaza. At night, guests of our Gainesville hotels can jam to indie-rock or party to trendy hits in the city's student-fueled live music and dance clubs. For a more laidback evening, unwind at a chic cocktail lounge or genteel British-style pub with a pint.

Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Gainesville to enjoy the exuberant student culture downtown and the nature reserves just outside of the city. It's a short drive to Paynes Prairie, where graceful egrets and herons swoop over viewing platforms and walking paths wind through steamy marshes and lush forests.

Latest Gainesville Hotel Reviews

Holiday Inn Express Gainsville
By Susie
This was a nice hotel. We were on leisure checking out UF with my daughters. Because we were a group of women, safety is always a concern. The parking lot was well lit and there was no dark areas or [More] people lingering. The Cracker Barrel restaurant is next door. We walked over for dinner and I felt safe doing so. [Less]
By none
the hotel was updated and conditions were great. it is tricky to find though. [Less]
Excellent stay!
By Kathy
Enjoyed our stay from the beginning to end. From the check-in with (I believe her name was) Tammy, and snatching the complimentary cookie they have at the front desk, to the comfortable sleep we all [More] had, to the great breakfast in the morning. I liked the variety and it was waaaay better than the other holiday inn express that we've gone to. ;-) [Less]
Very comfortable stay
By Alejules
The service at this hotel is excellent. Couple that with a clean and comfortable room and you will not be disappointed. Yes, the hotel is an older property and does need some sprucing up but it is [More] obvious the renovations are underway and many have been completed. The new mattresses offered a great night sleep and while I did not use it, the pool area looked beautiful and inviting. Give the hotel a try if in the Gainesville area and want to be near UF or downtown. I think you will be glad you did. [Less]
