    We stayed here for visit to University of FL-extremely convenient to campus. The lobby was beautiful, clean, updated, the room was very dated, although clean. The bed was very comfy!

    Great choice!

    This hotel is incredibly clean and well-located. Downtown Gainesville is just a short drive away. The rooms are big and comfortable, with plenty of space for a pack and play for a baby!

    Solid.

    Great weekend stay. We have college students in Gainesville and visit often. This hotel can get pricey on weekends but glad we jumped on this rate. Overall cleanest, and most complete hotel we've stayed at in Gainesville. Impeccable sanitation, fastest elevators, bar is great, room was perfect and felt very safe in this location across the street from campus and art museum.
