The hotel is in a very convenient location. It was clean, quiet, and the staff were so friendly and helpful. One morning before work, my car would not start and the maintenance man came and gave me a jump. He was so kind and professional. I enjoyed my work week in Gainesville, and relaxing after work in this hotel!

I found the hotel an enjoyable place to stay and would stay here again if I was in the area. The staff was attentive, polite and courteous. The restaurant was average. The breakfast area in the hotel was great though, lots of options and space.

This hotel was the best that we stayed in over our 2 week trip. If there were hotel balconies or a closer area for smokers, it would have been perfect. Overall, I highly recommend your hotel. It was very clean and comfortable and very efficient staff. Affordable yet very high end. Loved it!!!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is really pretty outside and the lobby. My room was nice and clean with a comfortable bed. The restaurant was fairly good. Most of the servers were wonderful - just one with a bad attitude, but she may have been having an off night.
