Came into town to visit some of the local museums and the University. Based my hotel decision on reviews here on Trip Advisor. I'm glad I did. Great location, clean, recently updated rooms, clean swimming pool, great hot breakfast, and cookies, popcorn, and snacks available all day. A short drive to a ton of great restaurants.

For the price, I can't imagine how this hotel can be beat. Very clean. Very comfortable. Lots of little extras. Great staff. Great free breakfast. I won't even try another hotel next time I go to Gainesville.

For the price we paid and it's location, it's a great value. The room was very clean and the bedding was very clean. Not much of a view even though we were on the top floor but it was very quite and the bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast (free) was also very good and saved us even more. Even...

With U of F fall semester approaching, we decided on a different hotel, who will protect our rate even through Gator Football season. Although the room was nice and renovated, staff and "free" breakfast was exactly...

I am sorry to hear that you had problems with our Shands Hospital rate. The Shands Hospital rate should always be 20% lower than the online price.

I looked at the reviews and decided that for the price it was worth the risk. Even arriving after midnight the desk attendant was...
