Spent the night here with a friend from out of town. Everything was very clean and the bed linens crisp white and clean. There was a mini fridge in the room which was nice to have. My friend got a great nights sleep in her bed. I didn't sleep as well in mine. Mattress was a little firm for me...

The staff is friendly and very helpful. Been staying there for over a year because of my husband's surgeries. Would not stay anywhere else! Would love to go down just to relax but can't do that yet. Rae Ann is an excellent front desk manager.

Nicole from the front desk was very nice and accommodating. The hotel was clean and pleasant with free popcorn and cookies throughout the day. I traveled with my soccer team so we fit four people to each room. The pullout couch was uncomfortable so I would recommend just booking another room instead. Would stay here again.

Very clean. Spent one night before going to Miami. Quiet next to elevator. Desk clerks very courteous. Left pillow & they bagged it, kept it until we stopped on way home. Housekeeping had returned it to front desk--expensive Tempurpedic pillow. Honesty admirable. Would stay there again.

Nothing spectacular. Clean, quite and relatively comfortable. Not my first choice in Gainesville but our usual favorites were booked. Hot breakfast was also average. Staff very friendly and polite. Good in a pinch; I'd recommend it.

What a nice surprise for a modestly priced hotel! The rooms were very nice and clean. They had extras like good quality tissue in the rooms as well as coffee, soap, lotion, etc. They served good coffee in the entry. They provided fresh popcorn in the evening and at 5 pm some great cookies. The breakfast was quite nice with...

This was our first time staying here. The ladies at the front desk were awesome! Made us feel right at home when we checked in. Our room was a nice size and very clean. The housekeepers were very considerate and helpful. I would recommend this hotel!

Free popcorn and cookies at check in! The hotel staff treated us like as we have known each other for a long time. Clean hotel, close to all Gainesville has to offer. They sure do love their Florida Gators.
