Bed felt brand new, very clean room, friendly staff, still had some cookies left even though we arrived kind of late. The included breakfast makes it a great value. I do wish they had oce on every floor, had to go to the lobby for ice. They had a washer dryer on our floor, didn't use, but nice knowing it...

We have visited Gainesville many times and try to stay closer to campus. Because of graduation we chose to stay at Holiday Inn Express which is just a bit further out (still intown) The cost was far better than less attractive facilities closer to campus and the amenities were far superior. It was a very pleasant and comfortable place to...

I spent two nights here this past week and was very pleased with my stay. The bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. The breakfast was great and the staff were friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

After driving from Salisbury to Gainesville I was ready for a stop. I was not aware that it was Graduation weekend. Gainesville was jammed with traffic. We decided to give the Holiday Inn Express a try thinking it might be far enough from the celebration. Wrong. We got one of the last two rooms. The stay was great.

Good location off I-75 for an overnight stop. Beds are comfortable and easy to get a good nights sleep for the next days drive. Good restaurants close by. Hotel is a little pricey for this time of year and the fact that for a HIExpress, it is showing its age.

I booked this hotel because the price was reasonable for the area and it was close to the interstate (I-75). The University of Florida is about 10 to 15 minutes away which made the location perfect for a weekend baseball series. The hotel staff was courteous and friendly (but what you expect from a hotel). The lobby and breakfast areas...

We spent one night here on our way north from Florida. It was easy to get to from the interstate. Check-in was swift and the staff friendly and helpful.

This hotel is next to the freeway and can be a bit on the noisy side. It has a nice lobby but it also has people that smoke in non-smoking rooms. The room we had was full of cigarette smoke coming through the bathroom area so we had to leave the bath fan on all night in order not to...
