We arrived in the m i d d l e of the night and found very helpful,
understanding staff. This was much appreciated as we were
very, very tired.

Breakfast the next morning was AWESOME. Hot items were
hot, warm items were warm and cold items were cold.
The young man from South Florida who took care of the
waffles, eggs, etc. was extremely Customer Oriented.

The beds were heavenly and overall the property exceeded
our exectations. They Were Eager to please - Warm and Accomodating.
Like I said, A S W E E T Lodging Experience!

It was late and we were very tired. We needed a place to overnight between Atlanta and Miami. We booked a room here based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. There was a sale on the room that was reflected on your website. When we got there I had accidentally booked the room for the next night instead but they did not hesitate to simply change the room reservation. There were no King sized beds available in a standard room so they upgraded us free to a King suite. This is a 100% non-smoking hotel (smoking areas are designated outside) so it smells very fresh and clean. The room was very well appointed and clean. I am very, very picky about hotel rooms and I was extremely happy with this one. The free continental breakfast was good and the hot coffee was great. *Note: when I went to write this review, this hotel did not show up on your list of hotels in Gainesville. I had to type the name in. Why?

We stayed 1 night at this location. We arrived rather late and found the staff to be somewhat inexperienced at handling a minor problem, but overall it was a good experience. We had asked to be close to the front entrance on the first floor as I have a medical issue that restricts walking too far. We were given a room on the first floor the farthest from the entrance. When I inquired about moving, the young lady could not give me an answer. We continued to our room, which was very clean and nice. After about 45 minutes our telephone rang in the room, the young lady said we could move if we wanted to to a closer to the entrance room, but we had already unpacked and were in bed so we declined. It would have been nice to know andwe would have moved had this option been open tous upon checkin or very shortly after. 45 minutes is too long to wait to offer a room move, especially when it was 10pm.

On a good note, the breakfast was fantastic! We were up and out early, so we opted to make a plate to go. Scrambled eggs and sausage pattie on a bisquit, fruit and a glass of juice and we had a to go breakfast! Very yummy! We also tasted the sausage gravy and it was great also! No need to buy any breakfast with a nice spread like they had. We would definately stay here again! Friendly staff, clean rooms, great breakfast!

Good firm beds. Good breakfast overall. Stayed 3 nights. Stairwell closest to us never got vacuumed while we were there. Our tub was slow to drain. Room was well attended--no problems there. Office internet area had 2 computers available, but one never connected to the internet and the other was out of order on occasion. Connection seemed a bit slow. Office chairs were a bit low for my taste. Breakfast options were good, but some items (yogurt, cereal, certain bagels) were not replenished as the days went by. Noticed that some of the small cereal boxes were out of date. TV was loud in breakfast area; my attempts to quiet the TV were unsuccessful (only available table was directly in front of the TV). Perhaps the staff could lower the volume and show the closed captions. Did not like hot toaster location; cramped for space in breakfast area. Good cookies in afternoon. We reserved the AAA rate, but later heard the staff offer walkups a rate lower than what I was paying.

Thanks for taking time to provide feedback regarding your stay at our hotel.

After an unexpected break down on I75 and a 3 hour wait for AAA, we were so thankful to finally get to our lovely room. We had booked months in advance and found checking in a breeze. We stayed in a King Suite- small frig not too cold, microwave, large walkin shower, in room jacuzzi. Nice spacious room and bathroom. Semi quiet, could hear some talking in the hallway. Very clean. Comfy bed and pillows. Breakfast was good but small. Nice area, close to everything. Ate at Cody's Roadhouse after race. Awesome prime rib! Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Love the King Suite. We were on ground floor which was ok but a little too close to housekeeping cl...

We stayed overnight on a weekend for an athletic event at the University of Florida. There was a short wait to check in because there was a flood of guests checking in at the same time. There was one person working the front desk. A housekeeping staff member was doing her best to assist her. There was a baseball team spending the night at the hotel, and staff members at the front desk assured us that the manager wanted to know if we had any problems with noise and provided us with the manager's cell phone number. Fortunately, we had no noise problems. Our room was nicely furnished and clean. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and nicely appointed, but the lighting was not good. Unfortunately, the breakfast area is very small and the hotel was full. We had to take our food back to our room because there was no place to sit. There was a fair selection of basic breakfast foods. There is a small business center just off the lobby. Overall, it's an okay place to spend a night.

Room Tip: Our third floor room toward the end of the hall, away from the elevator was very quiet.

This is your typical "stay one night in a clean place" type of property. It is o.k. for business, but would not stay for any other reason. Pretty basic. There are other properties in the area to stay if you want a lot of amenities. Rooms are a nice size though.
