Hotel was over priced. Looks like a few too many football weekends. Rooms need a refresh. Sheets not clean. GROSSHave stayed there many times because of downtown location. Would not stay there again until a refresh. Too bad. Was nice in the past.

Hotel's Favourite
This was a very nice stay. Staff is helpful and friendly. Neighbor hood was quiet and appeared to be safe. Unfortunately there’s always a homeless person or panhandling hanging out. No problem there was plenty of staff around to make you feel safe. I hope this doesn’t stop

Sliding door to shower came off when pushed to open. It was very heavy and could have caused an accident. When I reported this to the reception I was told somebody will follow up immediately. No one has contacted so far.

Great Location and Great Staff. Hotel was clean and comfortable for our short stay. It is convenient to the University (3 miles) and in the heart of downtown with pubs, restaurants, shops and galleries.

How far is it to the closest beach
Good morning, Gainesville is perfectly located between the Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean. You can plan on about an hour and half either way. Safe travels

do you have room service
I'm sorry, but we do not have a restaurant in the hotel. However, there are 15 restaurants within 3 blocks of the hotel, and many of them will deliver!

please tell me about parking.
Hello, My name is Brittany. I am a front desk agent at the hotel. Just so you know, you can park on the street after 4 pm in any of the 2 hour spots until 9 am the following day. Unless it is a Friday, in which case you can stay there until Monday at 9 am. Otherwise you can park in the parking garage behind the building for 9 dollars a night during the week and 14 on the weekend, but every time you exit and re-enter it will charge you 2 more dollars. Or just valet for 14 dollars a night with the hotel.
