YOU DESERVE BETTER! What was once a decent hotel to stay -- is no longer! Please be advised that there are better newer hotels close by. We have stayed at this hotel for 20 years because we have relatives living close by in Lanier Village Estates retirement village. But we have watched this hotel deteriorate over the years. We rented... More

I am sorry to hear you found your stay less than satisfactory. We are actually preparing for major renovations in 2016 and this may take care of some of your concerns. However, we have added additional plugins in the room and generally receive nothing but good remarks on our breakfast and dinner. I hope you will find it possible to... More

My husband and I stayed in a king size bedroom. Room was very nice. Large bathroom with nice vanity and mirror. Coffee and tea in the room. Microwave and refridge. Sitting area, desk and chair. Breakfast the next morning was everything you could ask for. Friendly staff, great stay!

The hotel is conveniently located to in-town business. The room was fine. If you need a in-house fitness center stay elsewhere or rely on a local fitness facility. I asked the desk for the location of fitness room. You'd think the desk clerk would've mentioned that NOTHING was operable...treadmills, recumbent bike, etc.

Stayed here for two nights recently on business. Staff was friendly. The library lounge was a place and a nice place to relax and have a drink. I did not eat at the restaurant.

I was a guest here and also held a meeting. The Staff was amazing. So accommodating and genuinely nice. The sleeping rooms and meeting rooms were so clean and well appointed. Great Value. This is now my go to facility if in the Gainesville area. I would actually drive out of my way to stay here.

The location of the hotel was good. Staff was scarce ... had to wait 5 minutes for someone to come to the front desk which was odd! It is by train tracks so this can disrupt your sleep if you are a light sleeper but overall not bad. Our room had a jacuzzi tub that I wasn't expecting. This is... More

The location of this hotel is in the city center- we had trouble sleeping at night due to traffic and construction noises, but that is to be expected when the hotel is right on the corner of what appears to be a major hub through Gainesville.

I'm really struggling to understand why this hotel is rated so highly. This is an old hotel that is not maintained.
