“Great experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

Stayed here on business and found the location very convenient. The front desk staff at check-in (Sergio) and -out (Kenneth) were great - very helpful. My room was terrific - kitchen & living area separate from the bedroom.Lots of pillows on the king bed and more in the closet if needed. Wi-fi was spotty at times, but worked best either early morning or late evening. The breakfast each day was acceptable with hot options and cereals/breads - I liked that yogurt was also an option. I didn't get to sample the light dinner meal offered during the week but was impressed that it was included in the rate. This hotel is convenient to Shands & VA Hospitals and there are lots of restaurant and shopping choices nearby.

I would like to mention three outstanding staff members who went above and beyond the call of duty: Mega, Jeanna and Flor! In three or four different occasions, each one showed to address our concerns.
My wife Beyla and I felt the warm and sincere eagerness from them to help without being asked.

Thank you!!!! They are a great asset to the hotel!!!!
We will see you in September!!!

Rooms are clean, well appointed and well equipped with microwave, fridge, convection oven, 2 televisions, sitting area. Some wear but overall above average. Pool on premises, work out room and business center. Small shop with snacks, etc available in the lobby.

The "evening reception" consisted of hot dogs and chili, with a couple bottles of wine, water or lemonade. The wifi is pretty much non-existent. It will show up for short periods but always time out if you try to connect to anything. The wired connection in the rooms was very poor (bottom 8% of speed tests in the US): http://www.speedtest.net/result/1978941519.png.

The staff was polite and apologetic, but unable to assist except to suggest I call their internet provider for the in room hard wire connection. I stayed in the Hilton Garden Inn next door and had a similar experience with the connectivity, I will try out the Courtyard by Marriott down the street next time I am in Gainesville and see if they are more business traveler friendly.

Room Tip: If noise is an issue for you, ask to check the room, some of the A/C units are rather noisy.

This hotel was just what we needed while visiting UF for a sporting event. Close to shopping, restaurants and about an 8 minute drive to campus. The room and pool were nice but the fitness room needs updated equipment. Breakfast was pretty good. Eggs, waffles, cereal, yogurt and fruit were available. Each morning we were greeted with a warm welcome by "Flower" who does her best to make everyone comfortable as she oversees breakfast and the dining area. We will definitely stay here again when we travel to Gainesville.

The morning breakfast the first morning (Tuesday, March 26, 2012) was deplorable. Really... Chicken sandwiches for breakfast?! Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's morning breakfast was better with offering scrambled eggs and sausage and an assortment of begals and bread. What really helped make the morning meals better was the hotel attendant ("Flower" is her name). She was fabulous because she greeted everyone with a smile and compliments and asked if there was anything we needed.

The evening meals being offered were not very good at all. I suggest the hotel either focus on making a really great breakfast or a really great evening meal. One or the other. You don't have to do both, especially if they are not going to be very good. Personally, I believe most people prefer a really good breakfast in the morning before heading out for work or departing for their next destination.
