didn't find anything wrong. They are exactly what they try to be. Reasonable price with clean, quiet rooms. Would go there next time we travel north. Plus it's easy to get to and close to decent restaurants.

This hotel is connected to another hotel which shares amenities between the hotels for all guests. The workout room consequently is huge and well equipped and the best I've seen in a hotel similar to this. The pool is also huge with a big area for relaxing, swimming with water falls & hot tub and lots of room to enjoy. It also has an excellent breakfast area with many hot choices and variety of items. The very large window in the room had double window coverings allowing total darkness for sleep but great viewing of the pool area (from the room I was in) when desired. The staff was excellent & friendly & helpful. The only issue I found was the tub/shower floor had no friction strips and one morning when I was showering my feet slid and for the first time in my life I tumbled, grabbing for anything to keep from falling but wound up on the floor, on my side in the bathroom taking part of the shower curtain with me. I was afraid I was injured since my arm & shoulder were in pain from the fall. The lesson for the hotel is to put something on the floor of the shower/tub to make it less slick.

We surprised our parents for their wedding anniversary and stayed in this property for that event. The event was exceptionally exciting and a great blessing! This particular HIE is a lovely property. It joins together with a Staybridge Suites property to make a beautiful complex. There were however a few issues with service but the property is in wonderful working order. We had several issues such as our sheets were gritty- decided it may of been powder type laundry detergent, hopefully:) I remade our bed with new sheets and it seemed to help?! Also to get our room serviced was a big problem. The new protocol is to make an appointment, so I did that more than once and they did not come to clean and replace towels, empty trash, etc.. Finally some one did enter to do a part of that but I emptied my own trash in the hallway with a maid person cleaning another room! I am still not happy about the way this went. Rooms are somewhat pricy so I do expect some service besides just the use of the room. Also a note to remember is that we are using our own room more due to the Corona Virus issue. Less public spaces are used. We also had a bit of trouble with towels being available around the pool. Long wait there too. Really over all we made it be a good time but realizing that we had to do our our problem solving with out much assistance from the staff. Our stay duration was 3 nights.

Returned to my room the second night of my stay and keys didn’t work, which happens, so I went to the desk and got new ones. When I entered my room my room had been apparently cleaned but all of my belongings including clothes I had left laid out and various food items were stuffed into a bag in the corner. Furthermore, my toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving kit, and toiletries were apparently thrown out as they were nowhere to be found. Drinks were also missing. When I called the front desk I explained the situation and the woman at the front desk told me to just come down and get a toothbrush. I asked for an explanation and she replied there was nobody who could help as there was no way to tell who was in my room and there are no cameras on premises. Really???? This was violating as someone had clearly tampered with my things and furthermore, violated IHG Covid policy because my room should not have been cleaned or entered without my request during the stay.

We often stay in a Holiday Inn Express and went to this one for a short overnight after arriving late at the Gainesville Airport. It was about a 10 minute drive from the airport. Here is what was memorable about this particular location:

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The continental breakfast consisted of a bag containing an orange juice, a muffin, a granola bar, a cup of yogurt, and utensils/napkins. This may be because of Covid. I'm not sure.

Almost no one wore masks, including the staff. I understand that we were in Florida, but Omicron was still in full swing when we were there, so it was a little jarring.

The hotel room was clean and had adequate space. We slept well there because it was quiet in the room, which was a relief to us after driving through town on a Friday night and seeing a lot of partying college kids.

We were easily on our way in the morning with breakfast in hand.

I have shared your comments to our hotel management to address this immediately and I am confident they will take steps so this doesn’t happen again. Despite some of the services not meeting your expectations, I hope you choose IHG still on your future travels. Sincerely, Jenilyn J. Case Manager IHGService

I like this hotel because it is clean and I have stayed here before. It seems to get pricier every time I stay, which I wouldn’t mind, but I literally had to beg three times for them to get the cookies out in the afternoon ( during a weekday). Usually they are out around three, but they told me they would be out at four, then I asked at five and to no avail I literally had to wait to get them at 6 and we were leaving at dinner time. I like this feature because I don’t have to stop and get a snack before getting in, but this was ridiculous! Other hotels are timely on food and snacks, but at this one it was very odd- they advertise it, but they acted like no one would notice. I did- not as expected.

Canunzio, We try to bake cookies for our guest as an additional complimentary offering. This is not required by the brand but just something we like to do for our guest. We try to put them out in a timely manner but there are some times when the staff gets busy and we are late putting them out. We hope that you will continue staying with IHG.

One of the best Holiday Inn hotels that our family has enjoyed .. everything was good. The receptionist, Leena was above and beyond with her attention to us and also to every customer. The pool was amazing and the towels 100% clean.
The ice-machine was in a special door-closed room avoiding to disturb the people sleeping at their rooms.

We stayed here as a family to attend a football game. This hotel is relatively new and has a lot to recommend it. It is clean, neat and well laid out. There is a better than average pool and BBQ type area with basketball courts next to it. The staff were friendly and helpful and there is ample parking. The hotel is very near the interstate and many restaurants and shops if you are staying for a while.

They have family suites with 2 queen beds and a double pull-out couch which is nice for families who like to spread out or have their own bed. Our room had a microwave and frig. The beds were comfy and quiet.

The hotel is also a 3 minute drive away from one of the pickup spots (Celebration Point) for the Gator game shuttles. Very handy if you are riding on the shuttle to the game. We will be back.

I stayed in this Holiday Inn Express hotel in Gainesville, FL I-75 for one night with my family (2 adults, 2 kids in King bed with sofa bed). I gave 2.5/5 because of poor breakfast service. Room, shower, beds were excellent. Hotel was clean but the free breakfast was poor serviced. It is free but one employee serving all guests (who were waiting in line). They have hot and cold, bread, muffins, eggs, all the usual continental breakfast but one person helping all guests not enough. Also, I had to go to another building across pool to get milk.

The rooms were very clean and accommodating as mentioned in previous reviews. The front desk staff, actually all the staff we encountered, were very friendly and always offering assistance. The breakfast included provided many options…do wish it lasted an hour later for teens that sleep too late, but we could take it to-go and bring it back to the room, so that was a great option. We only stayed for two nights, but it was really nice and we would definitely recommend staying here. Great job to all the staff!!
