    Nice getaway, pleasant stay!

    Great stay, we really enjoyed the room! Pool/hot tub was nice!! Everyone was super helpful and kind! Only complaint is that I was double charged. I previously booked the room and when I got there the lady at the front desk said she had to run my card. When I checked out I was helped by another lady who was awesome! Breakfast was good too, the ladies serving were great! We will definitely visit this or another one of these establishments again!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Disappointed

    Arrived after midnight after calling ahead to hotel. Have stayed here multiple times. Gone downhill. Upon entry to room found toilet with material in it and not flushing. Called desk, was told maintenance was gone and would not be back until 8 am. Person at desk advised us they had never plunged a toilet but if they had some time they could come up and could try. But that “most people just come down and get the plunger themselves and do it.” Was never offered another room and was too exhausted to move rooms anyway. 8 am maintenance came up and took him 30 minutes and 3 plungers to “fix”. Found out upon first use was not fixed after all. Upon checkout was not even offered a discount. I asked for one anyway and ultimately did get one. Towels are very rough. Bedding clean and comfortable. Air conditioner seems to be on some sort of motion sensor. Once you lay down it shuts off within moments. Then it gets hot and stuffy. You get up to lower the thermostat but standing up kicks it back on. Strange and makes for a sleepless night for hot sleepers. A/C has a weird shield that looked very dirty. Side of fridge was rusted or dirty. We usually stay here due to being dog friendly but there are many other dog friendly hotels In Gainesville to stay in.

    Everything was fantastic, only thing that I would improve is the size of the pool towels.

    Not great - hotels.com room was highway view.

    Turns out the hotel.com discounted room was for a view of the highway (think noise). Upgraded by paying $40 more to a pool view (quiet). Turns out the view was 0 as totally (totally) blocked by bushes/leaves, etc.

    Sweat your butt off

    The whole place was very damp and humid, which I know... it's Gainesville -- the Swamp... but the insulation and A/C system should be able to provide more comfort than this. The morning breakfast was extremely lackluster.

    Vacation

    Very nice hotel, big lobby and dining area, we used the fitness room but the outside pools looked inviting and others were using them. We had a pleasant beverage at the restaurant outside. Good location. We would stay here again.
