Front Desk Staff were the best! Especially Marcel and John The Hotel is old and rundown but they are remodeling. The property is spread out like a campus so you have to do some searching and walking. For a one night stay for a quick business trip it was satisfactory for the price.

There were so many things wrong that I can't begin to name everything! I hated this place. When I went to check out I heard so many others complain, that I didn't even bother. Let's just say, I travel a lot and I stay in many hotels, this one has a big red X in my books. I've told my...

What a sad excuse for a motel. A 60's motel that is supposedly undergoing a renovation. It's like putting lipstick on a pig. Forget it. Curtains have holes in them, neither the bathroom sink or tub drain, so you end up in the shower with water up to your ankles. One sad chair in the entire large room and only...

Thank you for taking the time to update us on your recent stay with us. This was a very disappointing review of our hotel, and one that we will take very seriously. I will most certainly look into each of the points that you have made, and make sure that our management team takes steps to correct these issues. We...

As others have mentioned, there is ongoing construction. But aside from a couple of times during our three day stay, we heard no distracting construction noise. We were in a spacious junior suite overlooking the lake - great views of birds and a resident alligator. Bed was very comfortable and we had plenty of lamps in the bedroom and separate...

Good location. Not far from UF But far enough away to bypass in order to get to dining. Lake views from most rooms. Older hotel amongst trees and lake. Small but adequate fitness room. Nice pool / deck on the lake. The hotel bar looked pretty nice overall. Private balconies. Larger than average rooms. Ok , so it's kind of...

Having read some previous reviews, I new the property was under construction, and noisy, so I phoned in advance and asked to be away from the noise. They said "no problem." Upon check in, I also asked about the construction. I was assured that it was just painting, not noisy and not even in my building (1000). Upon entry, I...

If you're only needing a bed for a night at a cheap rate, this will do fine. However, if you're more used to new & shiny hotels, steer clear. The room was clean, the furniture was just very old and a bit rough around the edges. The room wasn't carpeted, but the floor looked decent, it was a vinyl that...

Stayed here over a weekend for a sorority reunion at UF. The only positive I can report is that the room had bare floors. This trend is great; so much nicer than musty carpets. Now for the negatives. No full length mirror. Coffee maker in the bathroom (unsanitary!). When I returned to my room Saturday afternoon after housekeeping had cleaned...

I stayed at the Wyndham Gardens, Gainesville, this past weekend for two social functions. All new reconditioned rooms were advertised when I made the reservation back in April 2016.
