Stayed here since all the hotels in Gainesville wanted $400 plus a night because of it being a Gator game weekend . It was a great location since it is right off the highway.

Very nice hotel, clean rooms, friendly staff. On site restaurant makes it nice but they need to add some kid food to the menu. Property very well kept up, nice heated pool. We got lucky the fire department stopped by to let kids in the hotel touch a truck. We would stay here again.
