Very well appointed considering its grading , everything very clean, good quality toiletries and towels. Air conditioning and coffee in room , plus a fridge . Quality of room and hotel could teach a few 4 and five star hotels I have stayed at a few lessons. Breakfast was basic but adequate for needs.

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....

We arrived at the hotel late (7 pm) and were given a suite since they were sold out and we had a reservation. The suite was clean and everything worked which was the good point. The next day we mentioned to the Assistant General Manager that we found it frustrating that the suite was two rooms but only had one...

Thank you for choosing to stay at our property. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the suite that we gave you. Unfortunately since IHG only requires 1 phone to be in each room, and for it to be located in the living area in our suites, we chose to not place another phone in the room because management didn't...

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 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....
