A great location to stay while breaking up our drive home. Upon check in we were greeted by fresh baked cookies and a friendly efficient employee. When inquiring where to dine he suggested a great local place which proved to be great advice. Room was comfortable, sheets soft, pillows plentiful, shower pressure good and hot. Free hot breakfast always a...

Don't leave valuables in your room. My stay here was decent except that my fitness tracker watch was taken from my room. I realized I had left the item in my room within 4 hours of checking out and called immediately. The item was gone. The Manager was understanding but did nothing about my Samsung Gear Fit2 that was stolen....

I would like to thank you for contacting us quickly after you thought that you left your Samsung Gear Fit2 in your room. Unfortunately, as my manager stated, the item was not found in the room and I am sure that our staff was not responsible for this either. we have received expensive jewelry, electronics, and wallets from the same...

I was staying at the Holiday Inn in Gainesville because my father was in the VA hospital. I was only expecting to stay two days but my father turned terminally ill. I tried to book the rest of the time I was to stay there online but the Saturday night was all booked. So I booked the Sunday through Friday....

I have stayed here twice in the last month for a Shands hospital visit with a family member. The room I had with one king bed was much nicer than the double queen the next stay, but both were clean and in good repair. I love that there is a restaurant and gas station within easy walking distance.

The staff was pretty nice which is the only nice thing I can say about the hotel. The parking lot is too small for the amount of rooms they have and several times we were left without a stall. It is not well lit either so it makes it difficult to walk around at night. The hotel rooms are pretty...

I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately we do have smoking rooms on the first floor which sometimes causes the cigarette smoke smell to linger into the lobby. Our breakfast items are pre cooked and re heated when we serve them. I'm sorry that you feel this way about our hotel and hope...

We stopped at this place while passing through Gainesville as we headed to SW Florida for some R and R. The front desk ladies were friendly and courteous. The room was a little small. The king size bed was perfect. The shower head was a little low for a 6'6" guy. But then again, most are. The breakfast was great....

This hotel is close to Shands and make it handy for visits. We found the hotel very clean. This HIE had gluten free options for breakfast which I don't recall seeing at other HIE's. Staff was courteous and friendly and it was a very nice stay. We will use again when back in Gainesville.

I have zero complaints. Front desk personnel were friendly and although I arrived way early I was given a room at 1:00pm. (I am an IHG Gold member.) Rooms are very clean, but not fancy. Keurig coffee maker, a little fridge and tiny microwave.. Bed was comfortable and great pillows. The hotel is easy to get to from I-75, and...

This is not a bad property by any means but it is definitely ready for updating. The jetted tubs do not work, some of the furniture is chipped/worn, and the bottom of our bathroom door had water damage.
