This is one of two (maybe three) Marriott-based hotels in the Gainesville area and near UF. They have great manager specials during the week - free buffet dinner and pour your own draft beer/wine. You have to book early - they seem to be sold out every time I try to reserve a room two weeks in advance. They have...

Our room was clean, the breakfast was good and the staff were nice. The whole place was quite well kept. Very good location, its not on a busy street but close enough to lots of eateries. I also liked its close proximity to the university. My only gripe is that I remember the king size bed looking strangely like queen....

I find this hotel so clean and inviting, the beds are comfortable and most important everything is very clean!!! I have stayed here a couple of times now while I get my daughter settled in her new apartment and the staff has been amazing and accommodating. Location, location, location!

This was our first time staying at a Residence Inn and I can't wait for our next! It was like a home away from home. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was good. Staff was extremely friendly.

Have stayed at this hotel many times when returning from Tennessee. This last stay was with a 2 bedroom 2 bath room and the room with the king bed in it had a horrible mold smell. We couldn't figure out why if it was coming from the bathroom or the air conditioning vent in that particular room or was it...

We were stopping on our way home to visit our student at UF and have stayed at this Residence Inn (RI) property many times before, as I am a Lifetime Platinum Elite member. The staff has always bent over backward to ensure our every need was met, they are very pet friendly (per RI standard) and the property is close...

Our fave choice in Gainesville for an overnight stay. Very friendly staff, a good breakfast with choices, comfy beds, room to spread. Love having a full size (real) refridge to hold water bottles, freeze ice packets for return trip. The rooms are a little dingy and dark but very Marriott clean. Parking can be a bit far out when they...

My wife and I stay at this hotel during our visits to UF shuttling our daughter back and forth to school 2-3 times a year. It's a clean and modern facility located just off I75, close to a new Walmart and other shopping. Like most of the hotels in Gainesville it can get pretty crowded during UF visit times and...

The place is clean and neat. There is good parking. The room was new and modern. The bed was good but the pillows were too thick. The breakfast was standard fair- yogurt, waffles, bread, fake scrambled eggs etc. The biggest complaint is the location. It is right next to the interstate so the road noise was considerable. If you are...

Thank you for your review, we work very hard to make sure every guest gets the best nights sleep possible. Most of our rooms face away from the interstate and are much quieter for the guests who have a harder time falling asleep. We would love for you to give us another try next time you are in town.

Adrian at the front desk was very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. the outdoor area was super nice with a pool, firepit, and grilling area which we made full use of. I've stayed in more expensive hotels but this is the nicest one because of the experience and environment.
