Reviewed 11 May 2016

Pros: - The location is nice. It's just off I-75, is tucked back just enough that there's not much noise from the main roads. Plenty of dining options are walkable - if not a very short drive/Uber ride away. - The lobby has been modernized as many couryards are and their dining area/coffee shop are nice. - Room was clean,...

This place costs some dollars -- almost twice what it costs for a nicer room on the sand in Daytona. Everything is extra -- no free breakfast. The room was clean, but small and the air conditioning unit was extra loud. I really expected more for the money and was disappointed.

Air unit we just couldn't figure it out. On AC it wouldn't come on so we left it on fan only mode which made it quite noisy all night and too warm. Pull out sofa in our suite was HORRIBLE. Our UF student son frequently will spend the night with us to give us more time together but this sleeper...

Check-in was quick and easy. Dining recommendations were spot on. Overall, kudos on the customer service in the 2 nights I stayed there. The bed and sofa were comfortable and I like that the TV channel lineup had a great selection. Housekeeping could use some work. There was toothpaste residue at the back of the sink which was kind of...

Flower Mound, TX
Reviewed 16 March 2016 via mobile

This is a typical Courtyard. Hotel lobby was nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It was a little difficult to find. Located behind the Steak and Shake. Room was comfortable and clean and everything worked. The price was a little high however that seems to be the going rate in this town. Will probably stay here again...

The fitted sheet wouldn't stay on the bed, the comforter was torn, the remote control wasn't clean, and there was not a soap dish in the bathroom. We were disappointed in the hotel. The location was the best aspect of the hotel

I have stayed at many Marriott Courtyards, but this was my first stay at the property in Gainesville. It's a very nice hotel, very comfortable, and extremely convenient to I-75 and the University of Florida campus. Unfortunately, when I received my American Express bill, I noticed the hotel accidentally charged me for an extra night and a 1/2 night's rate...

I have stayed at this hotel many teams in Gainesville and it is great value. It is located right off of I-75 and getting to campus doesn't take more than 10 minutes. The staff is always chirpy and friendly and the premises are clean and comfortable. The rooms also aren't bad and have a good amount of space in them.

I stay at this hotel about 5-6 times per year. It is a well run, nicely located, Marriott Courtyard. Personable staff, clean rooms, good food! Jasmin at the front desk is a model of efficiency. I would recommend to anyone in the Gainesville area!
