We stay here for 2 nights while on a campus tour at UF. It was clean and quite comfortable. Nice location across from campus too. With Covid, there was no housekeeping service though. Employees were very friendly. The only negative issue was the parking. You park in a structure that is shared with college students and many times they are speeding through the structure and you really need to be cautious of this fact. However,we would stay here again.

Hotel's Favourite
Awesome location, walking distance to everything on UF campus. Great very reasonably priced food options at AC Kitchen. Complimentary coffee in the lobby in the am. Super dog friendly with dedicated dog outdoor relief area as part of complex. Very efficient checkin - no valet at present, self parking - very convenient. This AC has always been our choice to stay in Gainesville and now we can visit our Gator son with our 10lb dog - the whole family is happy. Appreciate the staff at AC Marriott going above and beyond to create a welcoming, safe clean environment with very challenging Covid circumstances. We will be back every month!

This is our go to stop When visiting UF. Staff is always great. Walkable to campus. Across from Publix’s, a restaurant and right next to target. Make sure to see the sunset from the rooftop pool. Hotel is dog friendly and all of our rooms are cleaned and well appointed . (Stayed here 5+ times in last 6 months). The lighting is dark in the rooms which may be an issue for some but not a problem for us. Parking is self park $20 per day in the target parking garage so easy in and out access. Street parking is free on the weekends Friday after 5 until Monday 8 am.

Check in was easy but parking was not. It was a bit of a confusing trek. The room was a modern AC basic room. Shower only but clean. The location was great and you can walk to Publix, Starbucks, UF Campus and a tiny Target.
