Vols Fan But Gator Land!!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Everything is how it's stated on the web. No surprises! I love the place. I was there with a couple more guys for the Gator vs Vols football game and we had a ball. The entire staff was AWESOME!! Wait a minute, I guess there was a surprise....The Gators football team stayed there as well! Despite TN shirts and jerseys some of them took pics with us which also made the trip much more enjoyable!!!

We have a pet and they charge $20 + Tax but so worth it for a great hotel. I will always stay if in town

Love this Hotel!!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My family and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times because we know it’s a great hotel. My grandparents would stay here during their trips to visit our family (perfect to swing by to Newberry or jump on 75 or 39th to Gainesville). If my grandparents always returned to this hotel, then you know it’s good! We stayed here most recently for my cousins graduation. The pool is awesome, lots of lounging chairs and always clean. We were able to check in early and offered a choice of floors. Front desk is always friendly and breakfast is yummy. Whenever we are back in Gainesville, we will be back as always!

Clean and Yummy

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Very clean room, awesome breakfast bar. Room was perfect, I needed to book a handicap accessible room and it was perfect for my needs. Only con was their shower towels were very small. Pool and Jacuzzi were very nice as well.
